30's best of beauty routine
Since entering my 30’s in February, I have put a lot more focus on my skin care routine. Here are a few of my current favorites, but I want to hear what you are loving too! Share what works for you in the comments below…

1. Cleansers: The best thing you can do for your skin is to wash your face every night before you go to bed.  Two of my oldie, but goodie cleansers are Cetaphil Cleanser & Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser
*Use any cleanser with a Clarisonic to exfoliate your skin and deep clean your pores. On nights when you are just too tired to take care of your skin, use these L’Oreal Ideal Clean easy face wipes & make-up remover (keep it by your bed if you have to).
2. Sunscreens: Protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays with Skinceuticals or La Roche Posey sunscreen. Don’t leave your house without it!
3. Daytime moisturizer: Layer a light moisturizer under your make-up. Perricone and Olay make great options that won’t leave your skin oily.
Nighttime moisturizer: Wear a heavier moisturizer at night like this one from Olay or Mario Badescu.
4. Eye Creams: I am starting to see my age around my eyes, yikes! Time to start treating and preventing with a good eye cream. I am currently testing these from Clinique and ROC.
5. Exfoliators: I love the way my skin looks and feels after a good exfoliation! My absolute favorite is Exfolikate, but St. Ives is a wonderful (cheaper) alternative.
6. Dark Spot Treatments: I am battling the ever so lovely sun spots. I started seeing them a few summers ago, but they really showed their colors while I was pregnant last summer. Since having Knox, they have started to fade, but I have found these treatments (along with a prescription) from Clarins & Origins to be helpful.

*Also, for a spot treatment for breakouts I swear by Mario Badescu Drying Lotion.
