Beauty Pledge of The Month: Youthful Skin With Murad

Have you ever purchased a new skincare regimen and promised yourself that you would be consistent with it in order to see improvement in your skin? Then after a week of use you start to get lazy with your promise and miss treatments at night to the point where you are grabbing the good old cleansing wipes on the nightstand and calling it a night? I know I have been there many of times where I get so exciting about the new skincare treatments I purchased and never follow through to see if I truly see results from the product I spent my hard earned cash on. Well starting today I am breaking that habit and making a pledge to myself:

“I pledge to the world that I will be consistent with a new skincare treatment I have picked up from Sephora. I have in my masterbath a few goodies from Murad that I would like to see if it improves my skin over a 5 week period of time. I pledge to myself to use it morning and night.”

You all are probably wondering what could possibly be my skin concern for this month? Well, I would like to see more even skin tone, reduced expression lines  around the eyes and forehead, and smoother texture of my skin. How about you? Do you have things that you would like to improve with your skin? Share and make a beauty pledge to yourself too. What are you doing to use to improve your key concerns? Well for me, I will be using the following key items.

  • What I like about this cleanser is that it removes makeup well, and it works wonderfully with my Clarisonic Skincare Brush. My skin is left with a wonderful invigorating feeling of being clean without over drying my skin.
