The title is a little weird, but I was wondering what sort of regimen you ladies had for your faces, day and/or night? Do you wash both times? Do you use primer? Moisterizer? As I’m getting older, I’m starting to realize that I might need to take better care of my skin, other than washing two times a day. Also, what brands/products do you use for said regimen?? Thanks, ladies!!

@maloussii: I am terribly lazy. I wash once a day with a brightening face wash. I use a scrub a few times a week that has some acidy stuff in it. I use a mask when I think about it that has more acidy stuff in it. I use SPF moisturizers and sunscreen all the time and I like to wear hats when I’m in the sun. I HATE for my face and chest to get sun. I don’t want wrinkles or that terrible chesty skin that’s wrinkled and freckled to hell.

I wash and moisturize my face twice per day. I use Cetaphil to wash my face & a vitamin E & aloe based face moisturizer.

im all about sunscreen and face lotions..
I wash my face with an organic face wash and once a week I use a green tea scrub to exfoliate. My skin is normal but gets dry easy.

I try to keep everything as simple and gentle as possible. I’ve had the same routine since middle school. I’ve varied from time to time, but would always wind up going back to this:
2x per day: wash with cetaphil gentle cleanser and moisturize with olay complete spf 15 for sensitive skin (spf 30 for daytime in the summer)
once a week: exfoliate with st. ives apricot scrub
a new addition I’ve been doing is dabbing vaseline around my eyes as a night cream. I’ve been doing this for weeks and no breakouts so far.
as far as skin makeup, I only use concealer and powder (maybelline shine free).
I think the sunscreen is the most important thing of all. I have friends who neglected their skin for too long and already started getting crows feet in their 20s. I’m 38 and people constantly tell me how young I look.

@amandasouthcarolina: have you looked into seeing if you have rosacea? bumpy skin can be one of the symptoms.

I use Seacret’s products. I wash my face twice a day with mud soap, one of those times is with my clarisonic. I also use a facial serum or moisturizer depending how dry i feel, and an eye serum twice a day.
I ALWAYS wash my make up off before bed as well.

I am trying to be better about my skin care routine. I bought a bunch of Paula Begoun products and have seen some improvements after using them for a month. My main concern was blackheads, my skin is not too problematic overall.
I use the pore refining cleanser with a Clarisonic, followed by the pore refining toner, 2% BHA lotion, and then a tinted moisturizer with SPF. A got a sample of a BB cream from Dr Jart with my Clarisonic and I love it so much, so it will probably replace the Paula’s Choice moisturizer when I run out. At night I repeat everything (although I do get lazy sometimes and just go to bed) but use pure Argan oil as a moisturizer.

I don’t wear makeup much, and I’m super lazy, so I only wash my face at night when I have makeup to remove, with a creamy cleanser. I wash it in the morning in the shower and always moisturize as soon as I get out. I have really dry skin. I also use Proactiv from a kit my brother had (just the toner) when I get breakouts and it helps keep my skin clear 🙂

I wash my face night and morning every day. I moisturize before I put on my makeup, and also before bed (SPF in morning). I use a buff exfoliator twice a week. Every monday night I use a fruity face mask from eminence for 20 mins.

I got into a really good skincare regimen this past year in anticipation of the wedding. I’ve always had pretty good skin, but just needed to work on some dryness and lack of radiance issues.
Since everyone’s skin is different it’s important to find out what works for YOU. Since I have dry-combination skin, I’ve found that washing twice a day makes my skin drier, so I remedy that by only washing once before bed. Here’s my routine, products included:
1. I remove all makeup with either Clinique’s Take the Day Off or Aveeno Makeup Removing Wipes.
2. Cleanse – I use the Olay Pro-X (similar to the Clarisonic but only $30) with Aveeno’s Positively Radiant cleanser to wash my face.
3. Next I use Clinique’s #2 Clarifying Lotion.
4. Moisturizer – I’m obsessed with Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing and Brightening Cream. A little goes a long way, it has a nice smell, and my skin has never looked better since using this stuff.
5. Eye cream – I have really bad dark circles so I haven’t found my holy grail product yet, but I’m currently using either Lancome Genifique Yeux Light Pearl or Clinique’s All About Eyes. They both are great at keeping the eye area moisturized and looking smooth!
I also have 2 weekly treatments that I do. First is the Microdelivery Peel by Philosophy. It’s really great for some extra exfoliation, and my skin always looks super fresh afterwards. After the peel, I use Origins Charcoal Mask on my nose for some pesky blackheads. I do these after washing my face and before using the Clinique #2.
Sorry for the huge response, but having a skincare regimen has become something I genuinely love. My skin looks great, I only need minimal makeup (no foundation, just concealer for dark circles), and I feel like prevention is the key for keeping your skin looking good throughout the years. 🙂

I wash my face every morning with Cetaphil!

Wash face every morning and night. Moisturizer when needed.
I know you’re “supposed” to cleanse, moisutrize, exfoliate, tone, and one other step.
but my face wash has % salicylic acid to prevent breakouts and a gentle exfoliator.
I also take a daily natural anti acne tablet morning and night to keep my skin nice and clear!
Also, before going to bed I use a makeup wipe before I wash my face to make sure Im getting the products off.

I wash my face 2x daily – both times with Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (mild).
Evening I then put on Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion.
Morning I put on Clinique City Block SPF 25 and then Clinique’s new CC cream.
My skin is pretty dry and sensitive… I am thinking of getting some sort of serum or something but I’m afraid it might not work or might make my skin look worse. I’ve reacted badly to products in the past. I don’t have any wrinkles yet.
