Wow, we just returned from the amazing US Norwex conference, and I am overflowing with…
As I age, I am (slowly) realizing the importance of skincare. I am realizing that I need to take the time to care about what I am doing with/to my face & neck in the morning and at night before I go to bed. Honestly, it was never on my priority list. If I washed my face, that was a bonus – but most days I didn’t do a thing. I always thought that it seemed so complicated and time-consuming. All the cleansers, lotions, creams, serums….ugh. Too much for me. So rather than try and figure it out, I would live in denial….Well… not anymore! The Norwex Lysere Skin Care was truly the answer to my dreams!
Simple routines in the morning and night have made my skin amazing.
Note to 18-year-old self… Yes, skincare DOES matter.
SO… I made a promise to myself. At the beginning of spring, I made a commitment to start washing my face. I made a commitment to use the Norwex Face and Body Cloth, and follow through with their Lysere Illuminating Oil, Lysere Eye Cream and Lysere Daily Face Moisture Lotion or Lysere Night Recovery Lotion. My theory was that if I could commit to doing this throughout the most fun time of the year, I should be good to continue for the rest of the year. Well, I did it. And Norwex makes it so, so easy. NOT complicated AT ALL! I honestly just WATER to clean my face!!! That’s it. And, then lotion after. SO SIMPLE.
Intrigued? Just a little bit??? Yeah, I thought you might be. So, let’s take a step-by-step look at the Norwex skincare process. If I can do it in the spring, then I know you can too!
In the morning – I have two Norwex Body and Face cloths and I have strategically placed them where I know I will use them. I have one in my shower and one by my sink. So, regardless of where I am, I am able to wash my face. All I do is get it wet under warm running water and then wipe it over my face….
And then when I am done, I rub the cloth against itself again under running water to give it a clean. The silver embedded into the cloth does all the cleaning that I need.
NO cleansing products required!
NO product required. And, because I have put out two cloths, I have NO excuses. Next step – I use the LYSERE Illuminating oil. I know most people are against putting oil on their face – and I was too (but again – I did make a commitment…) but I went for it. And, now it might be my favorite part of my skincare regime. I only use one drop of this unscented oil, and it lightens up my skin immediately. This bottle of wonder is full of 15 different skin-friendly oils and some amazing Nordic treats (including Red Algae and Arctic Cloudberry) that will do nothing but rejuvenate your skin. It works on ALL skin types.
(At the Eckel household, we have also found this oil to be AMAZING on sunburns! Also, note my comment at the end about the new Lysere Rejuvenating Radiance Serum.)
While I am letting this absorb (which is usually quite quickly), I use the Lysere Eye Cream. This lightweight cream does just what I want in the morning! I put this in a VERY small amount under my eyes and It very quickly removes any puffiness and brightness in my eyes. I always look like I have gotten a very good night’s sleep…when I usually have not….hahahaha. Next, I add the Lysere Daily Face Moisturize Lotion ALL over my face. This adds the perfect amount of moisture and is not too heavy. Once it has set, I can add my makeup as I want.
And that is it. Easy peasy…totally not complicated at all. And my morning routine is more detailed than my night.
In my night routine….
I vary a little bit depending on the day. I do like to have a bath at night, so once my kids are in bed, and I have finished off my day – I grab my book and run some water. By my bathtub, I leave a Norwex Makeup Remover cloth so I can wash my face BEFORE I add my bubbles, I run it under the water. This cloth removes ALL my makeup – waterproof mascara included. When I am done, I run it under water and rub it together to clean it.
If I don’t take a bath, I use the Norwex Body and Face Cloth by my sink and do as I would in the morning. I LOVE the Norwex cloths for the cleansing step, because it naturally exfoliates and cleanses with the amazing Norwex silver-embedded fibers, but with JUST WATER. So it doesn’t irritate my eyes! I actually look FORWARD to cleansing my face now! It feels amazing!
After I have washed my face – I use the Lysere Night Recovery Cream. Again, very lightweight, but does wonders overnight on my skin. It is fortified with apricot and sunflower oils, with some of those amazing Nordic superfoods I mentioned above. As I rest, this cream gets to work – and does it ever get to work. I wake up moisturized and ready to start my day.
SO. SIMPLE. So effective.
AND THAT IS IT!! That is all. It is so simple. I do have to be honest, I may not be the best at night all the time with the recovery cream….but I am getting there. I also do not use the Illuminate oil or Lysere eye cream at night…but easily could.
The price points are fantastic (compared to other leading face products) as a little really does go a long way, and I get to relax knowing that the Lysere products are gluten-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, vegan and so much more. It is good for my SKIN and it does work. And more than anything, – it is NOT COMPLICATED. It is SO easy. If I can follow it – you can too…..at any time….
In truth, I now get compliments on how my skin looks, and I am using less makeup. To purchase the Norwex Lysere Skin Care collection, just click on the photo above to find them on my website, www.DetoxOurHomes.com. To see how the Lysere line compares to the Timeless Skincare line, please see my previous blog entry to help decide which of these collections will be best for you! Also, a great podcast with our Norwex skincare guru, Christine Lee, covering things that make the QUALITY of our skincare DIFFERENT, especially the use of CLEAN, healthy ingredients!
Now, you’ll notice that I didn’t go into a lot of detail on the Lysere Rejuvenating Radiance Serum. It is one of my favorites, and I’ll dedicate a separate, upcoming blog entry to it! I highly recommend, if you’re purchasing the Lysere Skincare Collection, that you consider adding this serum. It is INCREDIBLE! I use this serum right after my cleansing step, and now in the mornings, I’m using this instead of the Illuminating Oil, and reserving the oil for the evenings.
