I need a new face washing regiment
I have been using the Clinique 3 step system for Normal/ combo skin for years and am happy with it but I want to try something new. I have pretty normal skin, no acne. Anti aging is a plus although its not mandatory (me being 24) I like a multi step regiment (wash, toner, lotion) is there anything you would suggest?
I have normal/combo skin and I'd used Clinique's system in my 20s, too-- but found that over time, it was becoming a little bit "too much" product for me. As I get older, I find that the less product I use, the better.
Especially since it seems you have beautiful skin (normal, no acne-- it's a girl's dream!), may I recommend trying to cut out the toner portion and only wash, then moisturize? How I've managed to cut the toner out is by washing my face with cold water, then allow my skin to air dry. If you're in a hurry, you can lightly blot/swipe your face using your hands, but the key is to use cold water to tighten pores and avoid towel-drying your face to prevent overdrying the skin. Then, while your face is dewy and not yet dry, apply moisturizer.
I really like Fresh Soy Face Cleanser because it's gentle, cleans well, and smells wonderful. As a summertime moisturizer, I use Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream by a brand called Avene because it's weightless and so comfortable on the skin.
Hope this helps!
