Everyone in my family has such sensitive skin, especially our faces! I have partnered with SocialStars and Aveeno® to share my experience using natural products that work great to give a gentle clean, for me, and for my family. #Aveeno
You know how I realized that i’m getting old? Well, besides the fact that my kids are getting huge, I can’t eat sweets like I used to, and I need all of the sleep I can get, I noticed that my skin is getting increasingly sensitive! I used to be able to wash and go, and now, I require full moisturization after showering on a daily basis, from head to toe.
I am over the dyes and scents, and all of the extra additives that are in so many of our cleaners and lotions. My sensitive face just can’t process it all, keeping the skin smooth and wrinkle free is the focus. In an effort to battle this old age thing with natural fire, I have been using Aveeno® Ultra-Calming® Foaming Cleanser and Aveeno® Ultra-Calming® SPF 15 Daily Moisturizer and on my face.
Why Aveeno® Ultra-Calming® products?
Well, because OLD. No really, like I said, as I age, I can’t use the harsh, chemical-full, abrasive soaps and lotions anymore. My new regimen has been working for the past few years, featuring Aveeno® Active Naturals® products. They use oats, soy, and other natural properties in their lotions, soaps, and cleansers that balance and rejuvenate the skin. The Ultra-calming® products specifically use ACTIVE NATURALS® CALMING FEVERFEW® extract, known for it’s medicinal properties and it’s ability to deliver antioxidants and other benefits to the skin.
Take the time to take care of your skin, you’ll love the results!
After removing my make up, I run the water at a warm temperature and wet my clean hands. Using two pumps of Aveeno® Ultra-Calming® foaming cleanser, I spread it evenly over my face and wash gently using my hands for a minute or so. I rinse my face with cold water, to close my pores, pat to dry with a clean towel, and use one pump of Aveeno® Ultra-Calming® daily moisturizer while my skin is still damp. I love that it has SPF 15, keeping my face protected from the sun throughout the day.
Here’s the thing: I have always used an SPF 15 moisturizer on my face, probably since the 7th grade. My mom was adamant about her facial skin care routine, and I quickly followed suit. The one thing that I wasn’t doing, was washing with a specially formulated facial cleanser. I would use the soap in the shower and go, not realizing that most bar soaps and body washes are not made for the delicate skin on the face! I have since started using Aveeno® foam cleanser, and switched to Aveeno® Ultra-Calming® SPF 15 Daily Moisturizer, due to their natural formulas.
