Now comes the second part of this beauty series, so let’s pick up right where we left off.
The next step in my morning beauty routine, after cleaning my face and applying eye gel, is moisturizing my skin. For a few years, I’ve been applying a vitamin C serum by Avalon Organics. Besides the vitamin C in it, which it’s great to fight sun damage, it’s full of antioxidants that help fight all signs of aging, from freckles to wrinkles. It’s oil-free and very light, I highly recommend it.
Following the serum, I use an oil-free moisturizer. I have tried several over the years, but since recently deciding to avoid chemicals as much as possible, I discovered a new product that it’s not from a mainstream brand and that I’m really pleased with: Neaclear Liquid Oxygen Anti-Acne Facial Moisturizer. The name is pretty self explanatory, it contains oxygen and acne fighting ingredients, including salicylic acid. It is a truly non-greasy cream, which it’s one of my favorite things about it, it doesn’t leave my face shiny at all. Plus it contains a bunch of vitamins (A,C,D and E), and no sulfates, parabens nor any other harsh chemicals. It is also very reasonably price at $6.99 for a 4 oz. bottle. This one is a keeper!
That’s it for today. Don’t miss tomorrow the final step in my morning beauty routine before moving on to my night time routine.
