Jenn’s Skincare Regimen: 2020 edition

Editor’s Note: I’m back! It’s been a couple years, but I now find myself with more free time. And I’m frequently thinking, “Ooh, that would be a fun thing to write about on the blog.” So here I am! No promises on the frequency, but I do have a list of ideas. So if you used to read Beautypendence, thanks for coming back. And if you’re new to my little beauty blog, welcome!

Last year, I got a little lazy with my skincare routine. I was using most of the same stuff I wrote about six years ago but with less diligence. And at 43, things don’t look like they used to at 37! My skin was looking dull. I decided to do something about it. I dug deep to rediscover my Beautypendence skills and researched new ingredients and products. I now have a pumped up skincare regimen that’s working well for me.

Just me in my skin, au naturale.

A little about my skin: Thanks to good genes, I don’t have any major skin problems. While wrinkles aren’t a problem for me, sun damage and dryness are. Also, I have mild rosacea on my cheeks. The gentler I am with my skin, the better. No microdermabrasion or harsh peels for me, and I can’t tolerate retinol.

Just because these products below work for my skin, it doesn’t mean it’ll work for yours. Stand alone makeup stores and department store makeup counters will gladly make samples of products for you to try. I always get a sample to make sure I don’t invest in a product that my skin may not like. Also, many products sold online also have some kind of satisfaction guarantee.

Here’s what’s working for me these days.

Jenn’s Daytime and Nighttime Skin Regimens

A while back, Wendy posted her morning and evening skin regimens.  At the time, I was still trying out some products to see what would make the cut for my own skin routines.  Now that I’ve decided on my line-up, it’s my turn to share.

The product I was having trouble deciding on were daytime and nighttime serums.  Serums should be rich in skin goodies, and due to their thin, liquidy consistencies, they’re able to deliver those goodies deeper into the skin.  So you see, it’s important to find the right one for you.  Here’s what I’ve landed on:
