As far back as I can remember, one advice my mom always gave me was to take care of my skin. From when I was a little girl to the days as a teenager when I began to wear makeup. She would always make sure I washed my face correctly, removed my makeup and bought me any products to treat or prevent any acne I may have had. I was lucky to be blessed with fairly clear skin. But there were those days when those little suckers (zits) would appear.

One of the most important things about caring for my body other than healthy eating habits is keeping my skin fresh and clean. As a fashion blogger - I love to play around with clothes AND makeup, I don't wear heavy makeup on a daily basis unless I am on a night out but for my day-to-day I do love my mascara, bronzer,  lipstick/lipgloss, and I can't live without my concealer!

So for me the most important part is cleansing and maintaining, that is to make sure my face is clean and I go to bed makeup-less. But as a mom of a 15 month old and the hectic days I've had lately, for me, a reliable and efficient skin routine is a must! I have trusted Neutrogena for years now. And their Neutrogena® Pink Grapefruit Line features products that powerfully treat and help prevent breakouts and blackheads while delivering a refreshing blast of 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C. It's a win-win for me. Quick and easy steps for fast and amazing results!

I typically wash my face with a acne preventing cleanser, even though I have fairly clear skin, I like to prevent them. I recently started using Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser and I must say I am loving it. It leaves my skin feeling amazing, so clear and fresh. It does not irritate my skin and it prevents breakouts!

After washing my face, I use a toner (twice a week, to prevent drying out) then immediately apply an SPF moisturizer, DAILY, even twice a day. I always use SPF on everything I put on my skin.

I use the Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub three times a week. It does not irritate my skin as it is gentle enough for everyday use, but I like to not use too many products all in one day. I find that for my skin, less is best. I first wash my face with the facial cleanser then use the scrub. These are my best skin days... and my makeup looks amazing after this morning shower wash!

By the time night falls, I am exhausted. This is why I love cleansing wipes! They are easy and efficient. They are my DAILY go-to product when it comes to my bed time routine. I've been using Neutrogena® Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes Pink Grapefruit, they are gentle and remove all my makeup, even my eye makeup! It leaves my skin feeling young and vibrant! And off to bed I go :)

Ladies, it is so important to find the time to care for your skin. For me before I had my baby I had the time of the world. Not "me time" is a lot less but I always find time to follow my skin Facial Cleansing Routine and sticking to it! It is as important as going to the gym or eating healthy. Take care of your skin and maintain it. Whether to you that means a daily facial ritual or a once a month facial at the spa... whatever it may be, be sure to stick to it and make a it a daily occurrence. You will thank yourself in a few years! 

What is your skin cleansing routine like?
