So…it’s almost July. & I thought I’d update on my facial regimen. Well…face, neck & shoulders regimen. I try to treat those areas the same. Fingers crossed for even results in tonality & texture!
Here’s what I’ve been using:
- Aveeno Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser – I’ve been using this since about April, I think. The first night I used it, I saw a difference in my skin. My face looked smooth & polished. So, I kept using it. Now that summer is about to begin, I’ve noticed that I don’t really need a moisturizer after using this. It’s pretty moisturizing on it’s own. I’m not sure my face feels “clean” after using this though. Just moisturized. I may have to try Aveeno’s foam cleanser.
- Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer – I’ve been using this since February. It wasn’t really moisturizing enough for winter use, but worked great for me during the spring time. It’s very light, and didn’t leave me greasy.
Vitamins & Supplements
- Nature Made Multi liquid SoftGels – These are much, much better for me than the Women’s One-A-Day multi-vitamin. I take them with dinner, and am able to sleep peacefully through the night. No disturbing stomach rumbles!
- Nature Made Burp-less Fish Oil liquid SoftGels – I’ve been taking these for awhile. They’re fine, minus the hugeness of the capsules. I have to take them one at a time, so I don’t choke to death. I wouldn’t say they are completely “burp-less” though.
I think my skin was at it’s best April-May. I was getting pimples here & there, but I definitely saw improvements in my skin tone & texture using Aveeno & at the time, Dark Spot Corrector. I continued to use it for 4 more weeks after my review, so as not to waste my money. The dark spots were still present, but I think the product did do SOMETHING for my tone. If it weren’t so greasy & stinky, I’d probably still use it.
Within the past few weeks, I started doing too much & too little. Switching products. Going on vacation & drinking less water. Skipping taking vitamins.
And maybe it’s been the change in seasons…
Whatever the reason, I’m suffering an acne break out now. No real pimples, just a bunch of tiny bumps.
I’m trying to get back on track with this regimen. I know consistency is key. Along with sleep & water.
