I have dry, mildly dehydrated skin and a bit of rosacea. So obviously moisture and exfoliation is the name of the game in my skin care routine. I am aware most of the products I use aren’t cheap, but they work and I see results, so I don’t mind investing in them…. It’ll save on a facelift later in life.
Let's start at the beginning; The first thing I’ll do
While I’m waiting for the
to eat away at my dead
skin I go in with my eye care. First an eye serum, then my eye cream. I’ll be
honest, I’m not in love with either of the products I’m using at the minute. I
bought the serum because of retinol in it, but so far I’m not seeing any
results. And the eye cream is just ok… not worth the price tag. exfoliant
The other thing I do while my dead skin is being eaten away is I go in with a lip balm, you can’t beat Aquaphor for the price, it just does a good job. If my lips are a little more on the chapped side, I’ll use Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid, which does a pretty good job of getting them back in shape.
If I haven’t used a chemical
, just after I wash
my face and before I do my eyes and lips I’ll go in a facial oil. Which oil I
use depends on what my face needs. I tend to do 2 nights Luna, then 1 night
Peter Thomas Roth 3% Retinoid Plus, but that’s more just what happens rather
than a rule. exfoliator
Both products have Retinol in them, be it in different forms and strengths. Both are fantastic products and have a fairly clean ingredient deck. My skin likes Luna
, there’s more Retinol in the Peter Thomas
Roth product and that can take time for better but to adjust to. If I had to pick one
I’d pick Luna, but I suspect the 3% will be better for my skin in the long run. skin
Once either my
exfoliator is completely dry or I’ve let my oil
sink in for at least 10 minutes then I go in with a moisturizer. Either Sunday
Riley Tidal or if my skin is in alligator mode First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair
Cream. I only use the First Aid Beauty cream on the bits of my face that are
alligator like and only if it’s so bad it hurts. It has a habit of clogging my
pores so if I can help it, I won’t use it.
Sunday Riley on the other hand is awesome, and I haven’t
had to use the other since I started using it. My dry skin loves Tidal between
the hyaluronic acid and the tamarind (which according to new studies is more
effective than hyaluronic acid) my skin feels and looks moisturized after I use
it. It also has papain enzymes, which and exfoliate. And we know how much I like
Caudalie Beauty Elixir; complete princess product it does nothing for your skin, yet something about the spray and the smell it takes away all my stress and I love it.
The last product I just had to mention is Kate Summerville ExfoliKate. This
stuff it’s stupid expensive, but I think I’d sell a kidney for
it. It’s magic. I use it about every 10-12 days and it’s not pleasant, but once
I’m done my skin is smooth as a baby’s butt. Any dry, flaky patches I had are
gone. I’ve tried a lot of these type products over the years and this is the
only one that actually works. I just wish the price tag wasn’t so high.
Anyways, you sexy people, that’s my skin care routine, not sure how interesting it was but, I could hear my bank account crying just looking at the products. Before I go I will leave you with this question, what eye products do you use? I'm always on the hunt for a new one. Let me know in the comment box below. And as always stay and play safe.
