As a woman, having a skin ritual is so important to healthy skin. As a mom of three I don’t often take time to focus solely on myself. But as I am getting older (almost 40!), my face regimen is something I have become somewhat obsessed with. Over the last year (after I did my first Fraxel treatment – more on this coming later) I have become really committed to the following products and don’t leave the house or go to bed without taking just 10 minutes to myself. I mean, I might have to get up at 5am in order to squeeze in my morning skin ritual but that is the life of a mom right?
What’s your skin regimen? I would love to hear from you!
STEP 1: FACE WASH Revision Skin Care – Gentle Cleansing Lotion. An aesthetician told me a while back that I actually have sensitive skin (I never thought this before) so I started using this face wash because it was incredibly gently and doesn’t dry me out.
STEP 2 MORNING: PCA Skin – PIGMENT GEL and C&E STRENGTH SERUM – I mix these together after I have dried my skin and rub evenly all over my face and neck. The Pigment Gel contains Hydroquinone which is a lightening agent and helps to keep my skin tone even, lightens my acne scars and melasma. The C&E Strength serum is vital in minimizing wrinkles and keeping skin tone even. I use these two together in the morning only.
STEP 2 EVENING: PCA Skin – INTENSTIVE BRIGHTENING TREATMENT – After my skin is dried completely I rub this evenly all over my face and neck. It contains 0.5% Retinol which helps to keep my breakouts to a minimum and brighten my skin tone. I use this serum at night only.
STEP 3 MORNING: LA MER REVITALIZING HYDRATING SERUM – I put this serum on after to help maintain hydration in my skin. The hydroquinone can be a bit harsh and somewhat drying so I put this on afterwards to help soothe my skin and hydrate it.
STEP 3 EVENING: LA MER THE CONCENTRATE – I use this after I put the retinol cream on my skin to restore it and keep it strong.
STEP 4 MOISTURIZE: LA MER MOISTURIZING CREAM – I finish it off with this amazing cream. My face has never felt so moisturized and hydrated.
I don’t claim to be a skincare expert, but this regimen has been working great for me! You can buy many of these products on Amazon. I really do love http://www.lovelyskin.com as well! You can find the La Mer products at Nordstrom. Links have been included above.
