Skincare for an Active Lifestyle

 I love volleyball. It’s a sport that I’ve found to make being active fun. I think that is so key – finding something you love to stay fit. Because then you want to do it! I coach volleyball, play it, watch it — you name it! And with that, as you can imagine, comes a lot of sweating. Even coaching it, to be real guys. I’m not even playing, but I’m intense enough to be sweating!

Taking care of your skin with an active lifestyle is super important. It’s important to have products that work for an active lifestyle too. You can’t just wear any kind of lotion or makeup.

I recently started using Garnier SkinActive Brightening and Smoothing moisturizer and I love it. The second I put it on for the first time I knew it would be perfect for me. It is lightweight but your face still feels moisturized and it is perfect for on its own or even under makeup. 


Having an active lifestyle, you really need products that are going to work just as hard for your skin as you are for your body! Can’t have any slackers around here! That’s why I love Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer. It has antioxidant vitamin C that works quickly to even out skin tone and texture. You can actually see results with brighter, smoother skin!

I love it when I feel confident to go out without makeup. There are times when I don’t feel confident with my skin, but thankfully there are products that make it better! This product has lessened the appearance of my darker spots for overall more even skin. This definitely helps give me confidence if I go without makeup!

The reason I cringe when people tell me that they put coconut oil on their face as a moisturizer is because even though I know it’s good for a lot of things, it’s got a comedogenic rating of 4. Which means it really clogs pores. You want to search for products that are non-comedogenic so that your face can breathe. The Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer is so light it works perfectly on it’s own or under makeup. It’s oil-free and non-comedogenic so it’s perfect! It also is great for brightening your skin tone and evening it out. The best part about it is that it is easily accessible.

Now, probably the best part about it is that it is easily accessible. I know you busy women out there can relate! You can pick one up at your local Target, Walmart, Amazon, Rite Aid, or CVS!
