10 Minute Mother and Daughter Skincare Routine

Skincare is something that has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I distinctly remember my grandmother wearing cold cream and me begging her to put some on my face. She did and I felt so important plus I loved the smell. My grandmother told that cream was something she used every single day because it made her skin look great. As a young child, that had an impact on me because I thought that my grandmother was the most beautiful woman in the world.
Beginning in my teen years and still to this day, skincare is something that I make time for every single day no matter what. I clean and moisturize every single morning when I get up. I repeat it all again each night before going to bed. I take pretty good care of my skin and I think that it shows.
This year, my daughter and I are getting serious about skincare together. As a teenager, I talk to her frequently about taking care of her skin and indeed hygiene overall. So far, my daughter is pretty good about taking care of her skin although she is not yet consistent about it.
This year, Annabella and I are sharing our skincare adventures together by making this a mother/daughter thing. We went shopping together to pick out some products that would work well for us. This year we are turning skincare time into quality time where we can talk and just spend a few minutes hanging out with each other.
Good skincare doesn't have to take hours and you don't need to spend a ton of money to get results. Good skincare is about finding the products that work for you and to take care of your body inside & out.
The biggest skincare suggestion I have is to drink water. A lot of water and drink it constantly. Everyone in my home is a water drinker and we even carry bottles around with us everywhere we go. Water hydrates you from within and our favorite products hydrate on the outside.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Regenerating Cream might just be one of my most favorite products ever. I just tried it for the first time a few months ago and I have made it my mission to never run out. I keep a container in all three bathrooms of our home so I can use it liberally throughout the day.
This formula moisturizes deeply, delivers anti-aging results in just one week and it targets my dry skin which leaves me looking refreshed. The retinol targets those wrinkles around my eyes leaving them looking plumper.
Annabella is just now experiencing a little acne on her face so the Clean & Clear Triple Clear Exfoliating Scrub gave her a refreshing, deep clean that she said left her skin feeling “amazing” while removing dirt and oil. This formula gently exfoliates the skin with non-plastic, biodegradable microbeads yet is gentle enough for daily use. The soothing aloe & mint means this is perfect for any skin type.
The 2% salicylic acid acne medication provides a deeper clean, cleanses and fights breakouts, and:
- removes bad pore clogging oil
- treats breakouts while soothing skin
- helps prevent future breakouts
My daughter and I are both loving the Aveeno Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. The last thing we do each night before going to bed is to provide our skin 48 hours of hydration which restores the skin's natural radiance and stimulates healthy skin renewal. I use this formula 2-3 times per week in addition to my regular skincare products and I love how soft my skin feels each morning.
The Hyaluronic Acid acts like a sponge for dry skin and absorbs up to 1,000 times its weight in water making this non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, oil free formula suitable for all skin types.
Now I have saved my favorite for last. Had the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Liquid Makeup 40 Nude been on my list to try out, I would have missed out on something that makes my skin look absolutely amazing. This weightless water-gel is an oil-free formula that is pretty much magic in a bottle. Not only does it boost hydration for 24 hours for smoother skin over time this tint evens out my skin tone leaving my skin looking radiant.
