Simple Skin Care Routine + Win a Complete Skin Care Set!

I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.
As I’m getting older my skin care routine has drastically changed.  Instead of worrying about acne, I’m now focused on sun protection and anti-wrinkle products.  Most importantly, I want to use products that leave my skin feeling clean and healthy.
I have a birthday coming up next week (I don’t really HAVE birthdays anymore…) but ya know I’m very much mid-thirties now and my skin isn’t want it used to be.  I’m noticing fine lines and keeping my skin protected from the sun is a major priority.
I recently tried a great new line of products from Simple Skin Care.  They surveyed women across the top 40 cities nationwide & the results are crazy!  I had to do a double-take on my own skin care routine!  They discovered that women in the top 40 cities nationwide don’t realize the wear and tear their everyday lifestyle may be having on the health and appearance of their skin.D7K_9248
Living in a large metro area like DFW I know there are environmental factors I can’t control.  When I drive home and see signs on the freeway that say “Ozone level Orange: Limit Outdoor Activity” it scares me.  From grit and grime to dirt and drama, city living can make all skin sensitive. That is why Simple® Skincare, a range of facial products that is sensitive to skin’s needs, is launching “Kind to City Skin” – a global initiative designed to help women understand the impact that city living – both environmental and lifestyle-related factors – can have on their faces.
I know I can’t control everything that affects my skin, but I can do something to help prevent the effect the environment has on it.
I absolutely love these Facial Cleansing Wipes from Simple Skin Care.  They are so easy to pop in a bag and contain no harsh chemicals, perfumes, or dyes. D7K_9252
Check out he survey results below:
Holistic Skincare Habits across the Country:
◾While most women are already aware of skin-irritating behaviors to avoid, such as excessive sun exposure or a diet rich in salty foods, a new survey* reveals a surprising truth –
◾Nearly 9 in 10 (89%) women describe their skin care habits as “healthy,” yet their actual behaviors (a snapshot below) show there is room for improvement.
◾A Surprising Cleansing Calendar – More than a quarter (27%) report that the longest they’ve gone without washing their face is at least two days. Simple® makes implementing a cleansing regimen a cinch with gentle yet effective facial cleansers and wipes to remove grime and dirt that can clog pores and cause irritation.
◾Being Attentive to the Elements – Fifty-nine percent (59%) are not actively trying to protect skin from environmental elements such as the sun or wind. Women can apply Simple® Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 to help them prevent damage from sunburn (even on cloudy days).
◾A Serving of Glowing Skin – Though half (50%) claim they’re striving for a healthy diet specifically to keep skin in good shape, thousands of women are missing out on certain foods that could work wonders on skin, such as Brussels sprouts (68%), walnuts (62%), salmon (57%) and avocados (56%).
◾The (Skin) Effects of Stress – Sixty-three percent (63%) know that their stress level affects the health of their skin, yet more than half (53%) are not actively trying to reduce it right now. Making a dedicated effort to unplug and unwind can make skin less permeable to external factors like weather and makeup.
◾The Beauty Benefits of Working Out – One in two (50%) are unaware that exercise can influence their skin’s health. Exercise increases blood flow and helps flush cellular debris out of one’s system – contributing to the overall appearance of skin.
◾Simple® also uncovered which major markets are ahead of the curve when it comes to holistic skin care habits.
◾The majority (52%) of women in San Francisco are trying to eat skin-loving food that is organic, produced locally, or farm-to-table.
◾More than 6 in 10 (63%) women in Hartford (CT) are trying to limit the amount of time they spend using electronic devices.
◾It is most common for women in Grand Rapids (33%) and Detroit (32%) to ride bikes on at least a monthly basis.


Eye makeup is my LEAST favorite thing to remove.  These worked great and removed all my shadow and mascara.  I have really sensitive eyes & these worked wonderfully!
