Washing the Day Away - Healthy By Heather Brown

Washing the Day Away




At this time of year, my skin tends to freak out. Not only is the fall and holiday season fun and jam-packed but that usually results in a little bit of stress and late nights to get it all done. If there’s one thing I do every night before bed, it’s wash my face. I have always done this because my skin is sensitive and prone to breakouts. Even if you have great skin and don’t have to worry about breakouts, it’s still so important to remove your makeup.

I know at the end of the day, when you’re tired, you just want to fall into bed, but the benefits of taking the extra few moments to wash your face can really add up. Washing your face can actually make your skin more radiant as well as help eliminate larger pores, blackheads, and pimples. During the day, your face builds up a layer of dead skin cells, oil, bacteria and sweat. Then adding make up on top of that, creates a prime environment for clogged, dilated pores, dull skin, and breakouts.

I’m even trying to force myself to start using wipes to wipe down my chest, back and shoulders after workouts to prevent further clogged pores in those areas. Another issue I run into this time of year is dry skin in certain areas of my face due to being in the indoor heat and the temperature change.

A new product I’m trying to help me with these issues is POND’S cold cream cleaner paired a few times a week with my Clarisonic. It is hypoallergenic, suitable for sensitive skin, and won’t clog pores, not to mention it gets off ALL the makeup which is important for that healthy, glowing skin we were just talking about. Ha!

In anticipation of the 2014 holiday season, POND’S, the classic beauty brand trusted by generations of loyal followers, is teaming up with the Rockettes, the legendary precision dance company, to encourage women to kick off an effective, Rockettes-approved skincare routine and enter for a chance to go behind the curtain at Radio City Music Hall this December.

One lucky winner will be chosen following the end of the contest. Each person who enters will have the opportunity to win a two-day Manhattan getaway to meet the Rockettes and attend the Radio City Christmas Spectacular this December.

Entering the contest is easy.

    I’ve been using Pond’s for cleansing and moisturizing for years. Just sayin’

    This is what your Nana used every night for years, Heather. Ask her about it tomorrow. 🙂 And, early Happy Birthday!! I am so thankful for you and love you so much!

    I love the title of this post! Sounds like a great product.

    I love the convenience of wipes. I find that even if I use a normal foaming face cleanser, I still don’t get all of the makeup off. Will have to try these out.

    Sometimes the best thing isn’t the newest thing! 🙂 Ponds has been around for a while for good reason!

    I love that Pond’s is gentle for sensitive skin like mine. It’s great for my skin

    My grandmother swore by Ponds for years! I grew up watching her use it and when I was little, I used to sneak in her bathroom to put some on.

    I could definitely use the dry skin cream. During the winter here in Idaho, my skin gets SO dry!

    I am so horrible when it comes to taking care of my face! I definitely could use this for sure… especially during this time of year 🙂

    I love Pond’s, their face cloths are the BEST!

  12. November 19, 2014 / 3:45 pm

    I cant sleep unless I do a face wash. I should give these a try.

    Ponds cold cream is the #1 way to remove stage makeup… it works wonders on grease paint and colors. I make sure i have a few containers at school for all my students!

      That’s cool to know, Lindsey! I’m ready to see some more makeup tutorials from you, gf!

    I’m here for the Ponds! I love their products and have stayed faithful to them for a very long time. Will have to check out their new line.
    Definitely a tried and true product line.
