I’ve endorsed a lot of products on my blog, and I have to tell you guys, everything I talk about, I use and test myself. Or my family tests it. I never endorse something I don’t believe in, which brings me to what I’m talking about today which is skin care and Why Aveeno is One of my favorite products to use daily.
I never realized how important it is to take care of your skin. As a teenager, I was blessed with flawless skin. I mean I had girls gushing over how clear my face was and pretty it was without makeup. But little did I know how right they were to be jealous, and I don’t say that snarky like, I say it because I’m the one jealous now of how my skin used to be.
Getting older wears on your skin, especially if you don’t take care of it the way you should. The elements outside. The wind, sun and yes even the rain and snow can cause your skin to go through cycles of dryness. Or oily periods where breakouts happen. Being that I’m in my fabulous forties, my skin has changed from oily to omg sandpaper dry. In fact, you could push me face down on a table rub my cheek against it and I’ll peel away the bark, it’s that dry, which is why I turn to Aveeno.
Which Aveeno Products Do I Use?
Now you can see why I use Aveeno. But which products do I use? There are so many and you have to find the right ones for you. For me, it starts with removing my makeup. I never used to remove it. I used to fall asleep, eyeshadow and all. But now I can’t do that. I have sun-spots, scars and skin tags I want to cover up, and I hate how makeup feels on my skin. So I love using Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes. One wipe and my face feel clean.
Removing your makeup is a great start, but cleaning your face daily is just as important. I normally HATE and I mean HATE scrubs of any kind. Those little granules they put in them seem to hurt my face. I just started using Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub and I have to say, I don’t mind it. It’s non-drying so my face actually feels refreshed when I splash water to rinse it off, and it seems to be cleaning my face really well. (Cost $11.99)
Last but not least my favorite product which I cannot live without because of how awesomely-soft my face feels after using it. Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer. First off it has sunscreen in it which even a little sunscreen is important. But this product is the be all and end all of must-have’s in my beauty kit. My skin is so sensitive and Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizer rocks for 2 reasons. (Cost $21.99)
- It’s non-drying. My face doesn’t break out or dry out and feels soft.
- You use a pea size amount and that’s it. One bottle lasts me at minimum six months
Now we all can’t look like Jennifer Aniston (spokesperson for Aveeno) though I wish. You can have fabulous-feeling and looking skin if you take care of it the right way. I’m learning the more that I take care of my skin, the healthier it feels, the better I feel, the less icky I feel inside. Yes, poor skin can make you feel depressed. Who wants that? I don’t.
