Ladies (and especially moms), have you established your grown-up skincare routine yet? I’m hoping you have at least started washing your face at night and using a moisturizer. Please tell me you have!
One thing you should start incorporating into your routine is the use of retinol. Retinols help stimulate the production of new skin cells through exfoliation. They also help fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation. This is a must for preserving skin to keep a youthful appearance. I have a retinoid (which is a stronger version of retinol) prescription I have used for years, and while I love it, it can be harsh to the skin. I can only use it every couple of days.
I have been looking for something to use in between the nights I use my prescription. When I had the opportunity to try out the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream, I immediately was intrigued that it is less harsh than other retinols and is packed full of moisturizing ingredients.
I put this product in my nightly skincare routine. Just after one night of use, I immediately noticed my skin was brighter and softer in the morning, without feeling tight or dry.
My nightly ritual with the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream:
- Wash my face in the shower with my Clarisonic
- Apply hyaluronic acid serum
- Layer the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream over the serum
- Finish off with an eye cream
I love how simple and effective this nightly routine is! Now that I have been using this product for about a month, I’ve seen a significant improvement in my skin. I’ve also been clear of breakouts, which is an added benefit of using a product that gently exfoliates the skin. This product is suitable for all skin types, and I really think those with extremely sensitive skin will enjoy the product, as it does not irritate the skin like traditional retinols and retinoids.
If you’re in the market for a retinol product, do not sleep on the Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream from Neutrogena. I have also recommended this product in a previous post, and I really believe it is an amazing addition to my skincare routine. My favorite part is that it is an affordable product that you can pick up at most drugstores!
