My Daily Skin Care Routine

I thought I would share what my morning and evening skin care routine looks like.  Skincare is so important and being in my early thirties, I want to take care of my skin in the best way I can now. These are the years that matter!

We all have those go to products or brands that we love, and its hard to try something new after you find something you like and that works. All of the skincare products I use when I wake up and before bed are Arbonne products. I love them and it would be pretty hard to get me to switch to anything else.

My morning routine is as follows:
1. RE9 Smoothing Facial Cleanser
2. RE9 Regenerating Toner
3. RE9 Intensive Renewal Serum
4. RE9 Corrective Eye Cream
5. RE9 Advanced Lifting Contouring Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15

The RE9 Smoothing Facial Cleanser is a pearlescent crème formula that creates a light foam to gently wash away makeup and other impurities; it also smells fantastic. I cannot express how light this cleanser is. Do you know what I mean when I say some cleansers are heavy? Like the moisture is being sucked out of your skin. That is not the case with this cleanser. Silky smooth, I love it.

I follow the cleanser with the RE9 Regenerating Toner. I can honestly say up until a few years ago I didn’t really know what the purpose of toner was. To sum it up: it helps minimize the appearance of pore size through added cleansing. I spray this three times over my face and it’s so light it feels like a gentle mist and dries very quickly.

I then use the RE9 Corrective Eye Cream which provides hydration to lock in moisture to help reduce the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Can anyone say bags under the eyes? I can count on two hands the number of times I have slept through the night in the past 6.5 years. Even if my kids don’t wake me up at night, I still have this internal alarm that wakes me. This cream paired with a large cup of coffee kick start my day.

Next I use the RE9 Intensive Renewal Serum.  Advanced peptides, antioxidants and essential botanicals work synergistically within this formula to hold in moisture and help enhance the look of skin smoothness and firmness. When I was first introduced to this product I was told it was like “liquid gold” and it did not disappoint!

I have recently started using the Arbonne Intelligence Genius Ultra. (This is a pricey product but there are options to purchase the products for significantly less.) The Genius Ultra gently warms at the tip while massaging the product onto the outer layers of the skin. It emits approximately 300,000 waves per second to help apply Arbonne skincare products more effectively including serums and eye creams.

It has timed settings and will shut off after one minute to help you precisely time
treatment sections. It also offers a pulse after 30 seconds if you wanted to switch sides of your face halfway through. Typically I will use it to massage the eye cream under one eye, and then switch after the 30 second pulse. I also do the same with my forehead and the serum. Three different levels of warmth can be selected allowing for customized application of Arbonne products in each area of the face. Typically I always keep it on the warmest setting for all areas of my face. It charges using a USB cable and the charge holds for several weeks.
I then finish with the RE9 Advanced Lifting Contouring Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Collagen-supporting ingredients help enhance the appearance of a smoother face along with providing UVA/UVB protection. I find it to be silky smooth and it kind of smells like cinnamon hearts. Bonus! It goes on thick but it is NOT oily at all. I have an oily t-zone so I will not use anything oily on my skin.
Before bed:
1. RE9 Smoothing Facial Cleanser
2. Arbonne Intelligence Genius Nightly Resurfacing Pads & Solution
3. RE9 Advanced Night Repair Cream

I remove my eye make up with a cleansing cloth (typically I use the Kirkland brand from Costco) and then use the RE9 Smoothing Facial Cleanser.
I follow the cleanser with the Arbonne Intelligence Genius Nightly Resurfacing Pads & Solution. It reduces the look of dark spots and fine lines and leaves skin feeling smooth and even-toned. There are 60 pads in a container so after 60 days I will wait a few months before adding it back into my nightly routine again. (During that time I will just repeat my morning skincare routine but replace the day cream with the night repair cream.)
Lastly I use a small amount of RE9 Advanced Night Repair Cream – it has an ultra-hydrating blend of botanicals, plus collagen supporting ingredients that replenish moisture and deliver essential nourishment to maximize the skin’s natural reparative cycle. This cream goes a long way so you only need a small amount. It is also very thick and again does not leave an oily feeling on your skin.
If you are interested in using any of these products, send me a quick email and I can share with you a few ways to save.
