SK-II Skincare Routine0

As a 30 something mom, I know the importance of a regular skin care routine, but to be perfectly honest I wasn’t the best at sticking to one. I would often get excited about a new product, but after a few weeks I would find myself exhausted and falling asleep with my laptop in bed lucky if I had even washed my face. I know, it was bad.  But then, something changed.

Then I added SK-II Facial Treatment Essence to my daily routine, and I immediately saw a change in my skin from using this ‘miracle water’. The immediate results were that my skin felt moisturized and soft. I was so encouraged by what I saw that it motivated me to stick with it and to continue to use it as part of both my evening and morning routines.

Fred and my wedding anniversary is coming up in early October, and we are planning a special getaway, just the two of us. This milestone has me thinking about looking my best for him (and for myself), eight years later. When we are on vacation, we love to spend time outdoors whether it be lounging by the pool or taking a morning hike. My goal for this trip is to feel more confident sans make-up so I can take on these activities, and everyday life, feeling more confident in my skin. Gaining a more even and brighter complexion and smaller pore size from SK-II Facial Treatment Essence has already given me this freedom. The freedom of only applying a tinted moisturizer (with SPF), lip-gloss and mascara to be on my way while still feeling confident in my skin is a priceless feeling.

My personal skin care concerns are anti-aging (I’m 33), uneven skin tone and treating those pesky dark spots (thanks to hormones and the Houston sun). While my skin is still far from perfect, I have already seen a noticeable improvement in all my areas of concern and I haven’t even finished the bottle yet!

Sometimes treating yourself to a luxury skin care product seems like too big of an investment. As moms, we are always putting the kid’s needs, our home and everything else above our own, but for me my skin care is something I don’t want to take for granted. It is so much easier to prevent skin issues than to treat them. I am certainly at the age where I have to start taking prevention seriously while I also need to treat the problem areas that already bother me.

You ask a lot of questions about my skin care routine on IG stories so I am excited to share my most recent and effective discovery with you here. The #onebottleawayfrom journey really motivated me to stick with a routine the more I noticed the visible results the more motivated I was to continue using the product. Now it has become a habit to take care of myself every morning and evening, and I am still seeing results as I work my way through the bottle of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. I am one bottle away from feeling more confident in my skin for our anniversary getaway!
