I've partnered with Simple Skincare and Walmart this week to change up my skin care routine a bit. And really, the timing couldn't have been better! The weather has been crazy in my area. From a horrible wind storm that caused some damage to my home, to plummeting temperatures and no humidity. Walking to the end of the driveway to get the mail results in cold, red, and irritated skin. The results just aren't pretty!
So, I've been following this routine each night to gently remove all of my makeup and hydrate my skin. I do add in a 4th step (more on that in a bit, but it's because I typically have on waterproof eye liner), but the entire thing takes about 2 minutes from start to finish!
1. Remove Makeup: Simple Cleansing Wipes
I love these wipes! They remove pretty much all of my makeup, except for that last 5% of my waterproof eye liner that I mentioned above. They don't leave residue behind, which I love.
2. Remove Eye Makeup: Simple Micellar Cleansing Water
I add in a second step of makeup removal with the Micellar Water. Since I usually have on waterproof liner, I wipe my eyes with a cotton round and the Cleansing Water. It gets all the last bits of eye liner off, and it doesn't leave anything behind on my skin.
3. Wash Face: Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash
So, if I've already done two makeup removing steps, which don't leave behind residue, why bother using a cleanser? Because this is more than a cleanser. I swear! It has a nice light lather, and it feels great on my skin (but keep it away from your eyes, it isn't formulated to work there). It rinses off easily, and afterwards my skin feels like I've moisturized it. It isn't a full replacement for my lotion, but it really helps my skin feel more hydrated.
4. Moisturize: Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer
What's a winter skin care routine without a moisturizer? This one is a bit more hydration than my usual lotion, and it really helps to calm and soothe any irritation.
The best selection of Simple Skincare that I've found is from Walmart, head there to try out the products! The wipes will go on special in Walmart stores on 3/19: Buy Any, Get Free 25ct wipes ($7.99) for Simple Skincare.
What changes have you made to deal with winter skin care issues?
