SkinCeuticals Renew Overnight Oily to Combination Skin

December 7, 2007

sk026.jpg¬†Credit: Skinstore.comI think I’ve found an answer for clear skin. This night moisturizer is the best I’ve ever found. It’s got a 10% hydroxy acid (which is actually pretty high) that helps to gently exfoliate the skin and reduce those annoying congestions, zits and bumps on the surface on your skin. There’s also tangerine oil that helps to clear acneic, congested skin. I had loads of zits and breakouts recently due to an enormous amount of stress and using a product that so does not go well with my skin, but that’s another story. Anyway, this goes on light and a little oily. However, it’s formulated FOR oilier skin types, so I highly doubt it that your skin will get clogged up. After a while, you can actually feel your skin getting oilier and oilier, but that’s fine, because, I’m told, that the acid is actually working and the crap from your skin is getting purged out. In the morning, just cleanse with your cleanser that you have for when your skin feels oily (you should have a product for when your skin feels whatever it does.). Actually, you can very gently exfoliate your skin in the morning too…(I like my Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.)¬†


Evening routine

March 12, 2007

A friend asked me to write about my skincare routine, so here goes.
Every night, I religiously perform a little ritual for my skin.

1. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (for oilier days) or SKII Facial Treatment Cleanser (for normal-drier days).

2. SKII Facial Clear Lotion – has got AHA in it to remove dead cells.or Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner – it’s hydrating and feels great on the skin.

3. SKII Facial treatment Essence – it’s very light and helps to maintain the skin’s condition.

4. SkinCeuticals Phyto+ Gel – this is the star product to help fade and lighten scras, dark spots and is a great alternative to hydroquinone. It’s also got kojic acid and arbutin that help to break up hyperpigmentation. Also, it’s hydrating, so your skin is left moist and dewy for hours after application.

5. SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel – this oil-free gel has got loads of botanical extracts with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties to help soothe and calm irritated skin. Also, it’s got natural alternatives to hydroquinone and other chemical skin lighteners to help dimish the appearance of brown spots. Very recommended for acnenice skin and sensitive skin. It takes the redness away in a flash.

6. Skinceuticals Renew Overnight Oily-Combination Skin – a 10% hydroxy acid blend helps to efoliate the skin to leave a healthy, radiant complextion. It’s also got tangerine oil to clear acneic/congested skin and the exfoliation helps to fade those annoying blemishes as well. A very good product!

7. La Prairie Eye Caviar Eye Serum – a light gel to hydrate the eye area.

8. La Prairie Radiance eye cream – a richer cream to layer on top of the eye gel to provide extra moisture and helps to reduce fine lines and such.

9. Kiehl’s Herbal Blue Spot Treatment – for zits! This is THE zit zapper.

10. Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream – hydrates the lips well and leaves my lips plump and smooth all day!

Always massage in the products and wait till the products are fully absorbed before applying the next one.
