It is no secret that in beauty, skincare is my #1 priority! I have been in battle with my skin for a long time & I have finally came across products that just work! With that being said I don’t mean I have the best skin-at least not yet! But these products worked like magic into transforming my skin to where it is right now! Which is the stage where you feel more confident without any makeup on & that to me is winning in life!
A little background on my skin, I have very sensitive, combination, acne prone, sometimes extremely dry with pores skin! Yeah I know I got it all!!! I will go into details on what each product did & why I love them!
Paula’s Choice -Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant
One of those products that actually lived up to it’s hype! I started using it twice weekly as I have a sensitive skin & the product contains Salicylic Acid which is how it cleans out the pores & removes dead skin without being too harsh on the skin. Now I use it every other night & it helped my skin texture & also reduced the size of pores on my nose so much! I use it with one of my reusable pads & wait few seconds for it to absorb & then I go over it with my serum & moisturizer.
The INKEY List-Tranexamic Acid Hyperpigmentation Treatment
If the smallest scar happens to my skin for whatever reason-either acne or rash- it takes forever for my skin to heal & when it heals I’m usually left with a dark brown spot! To my surprise this super affordable product works like a magic on those hyperpigmentation. I don’t put this gel on my entire face. I basically spot treat it at nighttime & I use this on nights that I’m not using my Paula’s Choice Liquid Exfoliant. This is the first step after my cleanser & then after it absorbs I go over it with my serum + moisturizer.
Summer Fridays-CC Me Vitamin C Serum
Helping with brightening the dark spots & hyperpigmentation this serum works great as my morning serum! Overall helps to even out skin tone, fine lines & wrinkles. Vitamin C works great alone so after cleansing my face in the morning I apply this serum & let it sink in for couple of minutes & then I apply moisturizer + SPF.
La Mer-The Cleansing Foam
This is one of my newest discoveries & as much as I didn’t want to love it (because of the price tag) I literarily became obsessed with it! I have found out that foam cleansers work better for my skin & this one obviously did not disappoint! It is made for sensitive skin so it is super gentle while it cleanses the skin to perfections what I love the most is that it does not dry out my skin! If I have make up on I first use Elemis balm to remove my makeup & then I go in with the cleanser.
Dermalogica -Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator
I have used a lot exfoliating products & 99% of them left my skin irritated or caused me breakouts! This one from dermalogica is the only one that I have been using for years & it works like magic! It is gentle enough that it does not irritate my skin however it gets rid of dead skin & my skin feels super soft after using it. Since I’m using the Paula’s Choice Liquid Exfoliant currently I don’t use this exfoliator more than 2-3 times a week.
