Raise your hand if you actually have a beauty routine that you follow. I’ll wait.
More often than not, I hear about these amazing beauty routines that celebrities follow to a “t” to get their fabulous, glowing skin. I’ll read about them and get inspired to start and remain consistent with my own routine. But then, I’ll completely fall off of my plan.
This weekend, I went to my favorite skincare store, Origins, to purchase some face cream. While there, I started chatting with the manager who began to add her two cents to my proclaimed lack of a skincare regimen I don’t have. While I heard her loud and clear, I also felt as though she could have just been trying to sell me extra products.
But, after a good 20 minutes of listening and talking about my use of toners, eye crèmes and so on, I came to realize that she was completely right about one thing. Following a skin care and beauty routine that works for you really does make a huge difference in the way you look and essentially feel.
I stepped back and thought about when I actually looked my best. It was around two years ago, maybe three. I looked through images on my Instagram page (where I document a lot of my beauty routines and favorites). And what I noticed was that I was a die-hard beauty woman following her specific routine every night. Thursdays were my “girly nights”. I’d give myself the ultimate facial, take a long bath and do my nails, shave my legs, etc. It was amazing and I looked great. So, why did I stop?
I can’t really recall why I gave that up, or at least wasn’t consistent with it. But, I made a decision, after meeting this woman over the weekend, to really get back in the groove of taking care of my skin and sticking to my beauty routine.
But, I want to know if everyday women like you really do follow beauty routines.
