Simple Nighttime Cleansing Routine for Your 30s

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

Y'all I am the absolute worst when it comes to taking care of my skin. I spent the first 29 years of my life RARELY washing my face before bed. When I turned 30, I vowed to make a change and start washing my face every single night. I know how horrible that is to sleep in your makeup, but I'm just lazy. There, I said it, I'm soooo lazy and I just want to crawl into bed after brushing my teeth. 

Lazy is not a good excuse though, and being lazy will lead to skin that ages way faster than it should. So, when I turned 30, changes happened. I started going to bed with a glass of water every single night and I switched to silk pillow cases. Cotton pillow cases strip moisture and can leave sleep lines and wrinkles. Cotton can also tug at your skin, encouraging wrinkles. Makes sense, right? Silk pillow cases are expensive, yes, but the benefits extend past just skin deep, your hair will thank you too. 

I also now do my best to give my face a break during the week. Unless I have an event, I won't wear any face makeup to work. Sometimes I'll throw on some concealer if I need it, but I mostly just keep me makeup simple since I do wear a lot more on the weekends.

Even if you're not wearing a ton of face makeup, you still need to get your skin clean at night no matter what. I knew I needed something simple though, something that didn't require a ton of steps. I don't want to use multiple cleansers at night, I need simplicity.

p.s. how cute are these PJs my girlfriends gave me -- they have my new initials on there!! SWOON!  

Have you guys heard of Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths? These are what I've been using lately and I'm totally loving them. The cloths are totally dry and are activated with water. I've had makeup remover wipes in the past where I accidentally left the case open at night and I woke up to a completely dried out wipe that was worthless the next day. You won't have the problem with these cleansing cloths.

Instead of having to use a separate makeup remover in addition to your cleanser, these are specially textured with soft cleansing pockets to gently break up and lift away dirt, oil and makeup – even mascara – for a clean that is two times better than basic cleansing. The result is skin that’s gently exfoliated and smoother in texture in less than one week!

I mentioned not needing a ton of steps, and these include 4 steps in just one cloth: a cleanser which washes away dirt and makeup, a toner which tones skin with an essential cleansing formula, a mask which hydrates with specialized Olay conditioners and finally a scrub that exfoliates to smooth skin’s surface.

*Having CB take photos while I washed my face = hilarious and embarrassing. 

Since they're a bit different than you might be used to, here is how to use em:
1. Wet with water
2. Rub to lather
3. Cleanse - it's even safe around the eyes
4. Rinse, I'd recommend using a cloth
5. Throw away - but don't flush.

These are simple, easy and Sarah lazy proof! Plus, they're super easy to travel with since they are already dry. When I'm done, my skin doesn't feel tight like a lot of soaps would normally cause. This is a soap free formula and perfect for all skin types. I'd recommend trying it for a week and I bet you'll love the change you see.

Olay daily facials are the first step in my mission to go makeup free during the work week! Which is perfect because Olay's campaign is called #NoMakeupRequired.  Other than a cup of coffee and a swipe of mascara, I don't need any other makeup to look put together for work since they do leave my skin moisturized and exfoliated.

Less steps at night means more time to rub Veenie's belly in bed....

What do you guys use at night? Are you lazy like me? Have you had a skin epiphany recently to treat your skin better? Let me know, please tell me I'm not the only one that waited 30 years to make my skin a priority!
