So, just so you know-if you’ve clicked on some link to get here-this isn’t porn!
The first thing I do every morning is shower. My shower has to wake me up and get me ready for my day. I’m going to share with you my favorite things, the products that I use every day. Things that get me clean, keep me soft and smooth, shiny and bouncy!
To start off I cleanse my face with Mary Kay Deep Cleanser. I’ve been using Mary Kay Cosmetics for over 20 years. If I look young for my age, I thank Mary Kay! Mary Kay’s Deep Cleanser gently, but thoroughly, cleanses my skin. It’s for oily skin, and mine is normal/combination, but I prefer it to any other. When I use my freshener on the cotton ball after showering, the cotton ball is clean!
I digress from Mary Kay at this point to St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I use it daily in the shower after cleansing to exfoliate, keeping my skin fresh and soft, by removing dead skin cells. I still use the Mary Kay Mask once or twice a week for deep cleaning, but I love using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub daily as well. As you will see-I’m a bit obsessive about exfoliating!
Next comes hair, I love Pantene products! I have tried a lot of salon products, but I keep coming back to Pantene. For my type of fine, long hair, I generally use the Sheer Volume or the Full and Thick Shampoo and Conditioner. Allure Magazine once said that Pantene’s Sheer Volume Shampoo and Conditioner makes your hair feel like it has a shot of caffeine! And it does!
Now for the body! I need an unscented soap or shower gel, and my new favorite is Dove‘s Sensitive Skin body wash. It smells clean without any fragrance, and is gentle on my skin. I apply it with either a shower puff or loofah. Right now I’m using a loofah. I like the feel of a loofah, it’s very pampering.
While I’m soapy I grab my cute pink Gillette Venus razor and glide away the unwanted hair on my legs and underarms.
Once my body’s clean, I need it smooth. This may surprise some people, but I actually use a pumice stone over all of my body skin. It’s a bit scratchy at first, but you get used to it quickly, in a day or two, and it gives you baby smooth skin all over. No rough bumps on your arms, legs or bottom, and smooth heels and elbows. I have two natural pumice stones and one purple Mr. Pumice scrubber that I got at Sally’s Beauty Supply. I also have a Dr. Scholl’s foot smoother that I alternately use on my feet along with the pumice stone. I told you, I’m obsessed with exfoliating!
I’d love to hear what some of your favorite products are now!
