After last week's skincare confession, you are probably not be surprised to learn that I don't have much of a beauty routine. In fact, I don't even wash my face.
My face gets wet every day in the shower, when I rub my hands over it and rinse it in the hot water. It's enough to make my face feel clean.
No wonder my skin looks so rough, right?
If I get especially sweaty or especially dirty, I do wash my face with soap. The same soap I use on my body.
Give me some credit; it's unscented soap for sensitive skin. It's not harsh or irritating.
That's that, my skin care routine.
I don't have time for much else.
In the morning, I have to get Grace and myself ready to walk out the door in about 50 minutes. I could get up a little earlier, but that's a tough request for this pregnant mama.
In that 50 minutes, I take a shower, get dressed, work on my blog, eat, feed Grace, get her dressed, and get us both out the door.
In less than 6 weeks, we'll be adding another human to the routine.
I'm concerned that postpartum hormones will make my skin even worse than it is. I'm concerned that the stress of a newborn and a busy preschooler, combined with a lack of sleep will leave me looking tired or worse.
But I'm not sure where I could take 10 minutes to clean my face once or twice a day. That seems out of reach when I recall that I had a hard time even bathing when Grace was a newborn.
After trying Olay's Total Effect Moisturizer with Cooling Hydration, I am sold on its benefits. I am thinking that maybe I should at least try.
This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Olay.
Remember I said I got personal recommendations at Olay for You? It suggested that I try a few products from Olay's Definity line. I'm going to compare the Total Effects products with the Definity ones and choose a new routine.
I'll let you know how it goes.
