I have a pretty simple skin care routine- I use the same for day and night so that my skin is acclimated to the products and there are no freak-outs and breakouts!
I have the full proactiv system - I do use the cleanser but mostly I use ponds cold cream to wash my face. The shower routine would be a different post :)
I focus on moisturizing and soothing with a touch of anti-aging products. I do not wash my face in the morning- I use a toner to wake the skin up. For this I use Clarins Camomile Toning Lotion. Then I use the BareMinerals Brightening Treatment. This helps face my dark spots and generally evens skin tone. After that I use Proactiv's Pore Refining Treatment to keep acne at bay (this used to be the Repairing lotion in the old system).
After that I use Clarins double Serum (for age control). Then Clarins Day Cream. And then Neutrogena's sunscreen, which I spread on my face and neck.
I don't use eye cream. My day moisturizer is good enough. If I need eye work, I use a brightening concealer.
One method I use is to warm the product on my fingers and then I pat the product on my face. I do not rub or pull. This is very effective as the product is warmed and will absorb more easily and more gently.
I have to wear this face for the rest of my life! I like to take care of it! Investing in effective and maybe slightly pricier products to me, is worth it.
Me with no makeup after skin care routine. I can face the world ;)!
