Needed: A New Skin Care Routine

I’ve been so worried about combating loose skin I’ve neglected my face. Luckily for me I don’t have too much sagging facial skin with the weight loss. However in the last few months I’m noticing more acne, some flakiness and small spots on my left cheek. And the circles and puffiness around my eyes has got to go.

But where to start. There are so many products. How do you know the good from the crap? And what type of skin do I really have. Yes I have some flakiness but some spots are oily. I guess that’s combo skin.

Fortunately make-up guru Lisa Eldridge has some great videos on skin care.

You can find the second part of this video here and the update here.

Plan of Action
I know I need a cleanser, exfoliator, eye cream and sunscreen. However, I think my very first step is getting a facial.

A facial would exfoliate the dead cells, clean out the blackheads, open up pores, increase circulation, and super hydrate my skin. But the real value is learning what type of skin I really have and getting advice on the products I need.

That could save me time and money.

Once I have a handle on my skin, then I can head out to the local drug store.

Of course, its one thing to buy this stuff. It’s another to actually build a new skin care routine.

Goodness…I need to make more room in my bathroom cabinet!
