One thing I didn’t consider about becoming an adult, was that I’d still have to make time for me, that I’d have to make it a point to not forget about self-care. That’s something that they don’t really tell you about as you become an adult. As I’ve taken on various roles as wife, mother, employee, business owner, volunteer, and whatever else I may be doing at any given time, it’s something that I’ve often times put aside. It’s something I’m also trying to be more conscious about, because how my skin looks plays a big part in how I feel about myself. I want it to be healthy and happy, which is basically my goal for life in general.
There’s no place in my schedule for a super complex skincare routine though. In my life, reasonable and convenient are keywords, so I’ve implemented a daily skincare regimen that fits with the amount of time and patience I have left each day (which for the record is almost none!). These few simple steps each day make a huge amount of difference!
- Wash your face in the morning and in the evening. I like to use a gentle skin cleanser.
- Make sure you take off makeup every night before bed. This shouldn’t be a problem if you’re following tip #1.
- Apply Differin® Gel in a thin layer all over your face, once a day, every day.
- Apply moisturizer with sunscreen -Daily Facial moisturizer SPF 15 works great.
- Drink adequate amounts of water. It makes a difference.
- Get plenty of sleep!
Most of this seems like pretty normal advice right? But I’ll bet you’re looking at tip #3 wondering what the heck Differin® Gel is. It’s amazing is what it is. I’ve used many different acne products over the years, and some worked okay. Nothing has really worked great, at least not well enough to entice me to continue using it for the long term, but after eight-weeks of using Differin® Gel, I’m feeling pretty good about my skin situation. My acne has improved tremendously. In fact, it’s to the point that I’m feeling okay about not wearing a full face of makeup, including full coverage foundation every single day. This is going to be a really nice change for the upcoming summer months!
Besides the simple fact that it works, another reason I love Differin® Gel is because I can pick it up at Target when I’m doing my regular shopping. No doctor’s appointment is needed, because it is the first and only prescription-strength retinoid now available over-the-counter for clearing and preventing acne. It’s the newest advancement and ingredient in the OTC acne category in over 30 years! The keyword here is convenience!
This gel clears breakouts where they start (deep in the pores), prevents breakouts before they begin, and as a result, restores skin’s texture and tone, which is especially important as I’m getting older. We all want to age gracefully, right? So this not-so-secret weapon makes it one less battle I have to fight. I will ask that if you think Differin® Gel may be something you want to try, please use caution when using Differin® Gel with more than one acne treatment or glycolic acid product because this could lead to irritation.
