My Skincare Secret: Murad

Want to look like a celebrity?  My favorite skincare line is Murad, which also happens to behind the skincare secrets of celebrities like Kerry Washington, Rachel Zoe, Emily Blunt, Jessica Lange, Catt Sadler, Susan Sarandon, and more.  Celebrity dermatologist, Dr. Murad, has completely changed my skin with his products.

I know I don’t need to tell you how important skincare is.  I never really took skincare seriously until two years ago.  Why?  I honestly have no clue.  I guess I figured my natural tan would be a natural SPF and blur my wrinkles.  Boy, was I wrong!  I have been noticing wrinkles, reduced radiance, and discoloration on my face.  I know it is because I wasn’t preventative enough with sunscreen or a skincare routine.

For the past two years, I have been trying to get my natural glow back and Murad helped me achieve it.  Murad has a remarkable reputation.  All you have to do is look at the reviews online and see for yourself.  I haven’t even touched any of my other skincare products since I started using Murad.  If you’re curious to how long it has been the answer is two months.  I would never endorse a product I didn’t 100% believe in.  I infinity times believe and endorse Murad.  I will even go so far to say I will be a lifetime user.

 Let’s face it this winter has not been kind on our precious skin.  Murad is the reason my skin looks like the winter hasn’t had any affect on me.  I’m going to break everything down for you step by step in this post.  I also filmed a video to accompany this blog.  I know some people read my blog at work, and because of it they are not able to watch the videos till they get home.  I figured a video and blog would leave a little something for everyone.

Murad Renewing Cleansing Cream is my new holy grail of face wash.  I have used Purity for years, but never knew what I was missing until I switched to the Renewing Cleansing Cream.  Right when I opened the bottle I noticed the lemon-lime/tropical scent.  I wash away all the dirt, makeup, and impurities from my face every night.  My skin is never tight or dried out, instead it is revitalized and has a radiance to it.  The Renewing Cleansing Cream contains essential fatty acids and papaya enzymes to promote healthy, hydrated skin.  Maybe it’s the papaya that I smell.  Whatever the scent may be it is delightful.

I have been so disappointed in toners through the years.  They sting, dry out my skin, and seemed pointless to me.  I tried the Hydrating Toner and everything I thought I knew about toners changed.  My skin was hydrated and felt balanced.  I wouldn’t say this was a winter only product.  The summer sun is notorious for drying my skin, and I will be using the Hydrating Toner to keep it in check.  The toner contains witch hazel to tighten pores, and the cucumber and aloe extracts soothe the skin.  In the morning it wakes up my skin, and in the evening it soothes it.

After cleaning your skin it is important to treat it before you moisturize.  I have fallen in love with two different treatments.  My daily treatment is the recently launched Rapid Collagen Infusion.  After learning we start to lose about 1% of our collagen every year at age twenty I knew I had to start immediately.  The collagen-boosting treatment claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just 2 hours, and I can tell you this product is the truth!  My forehead wrinkles and the lines under my eye practically disappear when I use Rapid Collagen Infusion.  I have tried several high-end wrinkle products on the market and none have done what Dr. Murad’s latest innovative treatment has.  If you have medium to deep wrinkles, Murad also has the Age-Diffusing Serum to treat those pesky lines.  I have yet to try it, but I’m sure it is fabulous.

I use the Age-Diffusing Firming Mask two or three times a week.  I simply massage one pump of product on my face and leave it for 10 minutes.  I’m usually on Instagram, Twitter, or viewing blogs at that time.   After only a few short minutes I can feel it working on my skin.  My skin is tightened, lifted, never dry, and somehow plump and supple.  The appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles look diffused.  Oddly enough my skin looks airbrushed without makeup.

My winter skin has been so thankful for my moisturizer, Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture.  Rachel Zoe is too because she rocked it to the Golden Globes.  If anyone knows about the importance of looking your best she does, and having healthy skin does that.  My makeup application is easier because of this product, and I’m sure Rachel Zoe feels the same way.  My face and neck drink the avocado, sunflower, and olive fruit oils in and they relieve my dry skin all day long. The rich texture feels like silk on my skin without leaving a greasy residue.

For my eye cream I use Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes, which goes perfectly with my face moisturizer.  My dark circles have become less noticeable, the peptide blend makes my eyes look more awake, and it doesn’t make my concealer crease.  Pure hydration = Pure bliss.

Put your best face forward with Murad and be better everyday.  You can purchase Murad products at Murad.com, Sephora, Ulta, and leading salon and spas nationwide.
