Keeping Skincare Simple

One of the very first things I learned, memorized, and shared with my first customers many moons ago, dressed in a white lab coat, (me, not them) standing behind a big glass counter: Your makeup only looks as good as the skin underneath it.
When it comes to my morning skincare routine, I believe in sticking to the basics-cleanse, moisturize, and never for get the eye cream.
Here are the skin care beauty basics I can't live without, and that I shout from the rooftops about to my friends and clients.
Each of these products is suitable for any skin type, and I just love all of their clean, simple ingredients and ease of use.
I have included the names of each product, and where you can buy them. Enjoy!
Purity Made Simple Cleanser
Cleanses, removes makeup, and leaves skin feeling perfectly balanced.
I use this morning and night, and keep one above the sink, and one in the shower.
Also available in travel size.
$32 for 16 0z.
Hope in a Jar, SPF 20
Just a touch of this lightweight, non greasy whipped moisturizer after cleansing is perfect under makeup and gives skin the perfect amount of sun protection.
$38 for 2 oz.

For the days where you need just a little bit of extra glow, I love this as an everyday alternative:
Jergens Natural Glow Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 20

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
When applied correctly, patted on the skin and not rubbed in, this  moisture drink  for the  skin brightens, firms, and imparts a healthy glow for those days you need it most.
Great under makeup. If the tube weren't so small, you might consider bathing in it.

I buy two or three of these at a time. I always have one for the  medicine cabinet, one for  the travel bag, and one for my bedside table.
The exact right amount of moisture.
Also available in tube or jar, and in flavors and formulas with sun protection.
I don't put on lipgloss, go to bed, or leave town without it.

Clinique All About Eyes Serum
I've  been a fan of this product for years for  its de-puffing and moisturizing benefits.
Now, it is available in a higher-concentrated serum in a massaging roller ball applicator
I keep mine in my refrigerator, and apply it after cleansing and moisturizing, and before pouring my morning cup of coffee.
