EVER Skincare 30 Day Challenge Results

Back in February I told you I was taking the EVER Skincare 30 Day Challenge, in which I would follow a skincare regimen not once but twice a day. Yep. Cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, and hydrate, in the morning and in the evening before I go to bed, even though I am lazy.

30 day challenge

Thirty days is the recommended length of the challenge because that gives you enough time to form a new habit. In this case, I’d be adding a whole new event to my day, plus adding steps to my usual wash-and-moisturize-that’s-it routine.

So how did I do?

Skincare Twice a Day

Well, I was pretty good at sticking to washing my face (and the rest) in the morning. After all, if I don’t wash my face before I leave the house I feel undone. So I had that one down.

But doing it at night when I am already exhausted was indeed a challenge. I was faithful for the first week, and then I started to skip it here and there, but I will give myself the credit that I deserve. Now I am changed. I wash my face at night as a rule, but skip it on occasion. That is way better than I used to be, so I consider this challenge met.

Implementing New Steps

I have sensitive dry skin, so my specialist, Bianca Sanderson, advised me to do the exfoliation step with REVEAL Biomimetic Peel Pads only a few times a week. Even then, my skin did go through an adjustment phase, when the impurities were coming out and being swept away over a stretch of about a week. During that time when my skin felt dry and bumpy, I added a thin layer of the rich Hydralift cream under the final Hydralight moisturizer in the morning.

There have been plenty of days and evenings when I want to be lazy and skip the intermediate steps, but I was on a challenge, so I made myself stick to it. And sure enough, now I reach for the peel pads or the YOUTHFUL Quattro Peptide Face & Eye Serum without even thinking about it.

How’s My Skin?

I didn’t expect to see a difference in my skin in only 30 days. I see my skin every day, so any change is gradual. But if you look at my before and after photos side by side, I think there is a difference. My eyes certainly seem brighter!

I did the best I could here with the lighting and camera angles. The point is, my skin feels better. That exfoliation phase really brought out the fresh clean skin under what was on the surface, and overall it feels less dry than ever before. Continuous skincare is something I hadn’t made a priority, but now I do!

The EVER Skincare kit is meant to be a 60-day supply, but I think it will last longer because I don’t have to use a lot of it. So I guess this is just how I take care of my skin now.

Curious? You should try it. EVER Skincare, with Bianca Sanderson. Tell her I sent you.

  1. I am impressed by your newfound discipline (most of the time)!
    Glad you’re human and skip once in a while.

    🙂

  2. Ah, I can relate to that skipping once in a while. The trick is to be consistent – consistently doing the nighttime routine. It’s kinda like brushing your teeth before you go to bed!
