Beauty | Weekend Skincare Routine + Giveaway

Beauty  |  Weekend Skincare Routine + Giveaway

From Monday to Thursday, I put my skin through hell. Makeup, rushed skincare routines, and the occasional “I’m too tired to take off my makeup at night”. I’ve recently begun my #NoMakeupFridays and its since done wonders for my skin. Fridays also kick off my weekend skincare routine. The moment I get home after work, I hop in the shower (there’s no better feeling). In the shower, I cleanse my face and follow with NeoStrata’s skin resurfacing duo; Crystals + Activator to exfoliate my skin. The two products combined leave my skin feeling great. I deeply massage for approximately two minutes and rinse off.

Once it dries, I apply NeoStrata’s Glycolic Renewal smoothing lotion to the dull areas of my face. Using this product overtime has minimized my pores, as well as evened out my skin tone. I then apply one vitamin C capsule to my face. These capsules have been a game-changer in my beauty routine for over 7 months now. They give me an effortless glow and firm up my skin (I use them every two days). I then apply NeoStrata’s AquaYouth Anti-Wrinkle Cream (it’s a little dense, therefore I only use it at night). It leaves my skin feeling hydrated all through the night and I wake up with glowing skin. I finish off with the lash enhancer serum. TheFancyNancy-Skincare-Neostrada-AveneEauThermal-Oceane-9

On Saturday mornings, I repeat my skincare routine (without the exfoliating crystals). The difference is that after cleansing my face, I use my Oceane skin peeling mask and then proceed as usual. I noticed that since taking more time to care for my skin, it has become more radiant and blemish free. I discovered NeoStrata products a while ago and I can’t believe I waited this long before sharing it here. It’s a great Canadian brand that creates products for all skin types. NeoStrata has provided me with a few of my favourite products to share with one lucky reader. To win, you must follow @thefancynancy19 and @NeoStrataCanada on Instagram.
