My Skincare Routine

I’ve changed or dropped a few things from my skincare routine since I posted it last January so this is a Skincare Routine Update. This will be much less comprehensive than my typical skincare routine articles, just to show what’s changed and explain why really. Contains moisturizing ceramides, hyaluronic acid and glycerine.

My face isn’t very filthy each day so the morning cleanser is detergent free and moisturizing. This is a huge pump box that stays in my shower and will last for months! Vitamin C is one of the very most effective antioxidants because of it’s capability to be utilized by the skin.

This lightweight, watery serum also contains Vitamin E and Ferulic acid which have been proven to increase effectiveness of the supplement c by 8-16 times. Apply 4-5 drops to face, neck, upper body and backs of hands, avoiding the eyes. Matrixyl is the mixture of two peptides (palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7) which were proven to increase collagen stimulation and firm skin while reducing inflammation. This serum is 20% Matrixyl with moisturizing & relaxing aloe, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid.

Apply 3 drops to handle (including eyelids & lip area), neck, chest and backs of hands. This is an obvious viscous water that spreads and absorbs leaving no greasy film easily. I didn’t repurchase this oil while i finished my first bottle. It had been a nice oil, but I didn’t love the patchouli essential oil scent.

  1. Never underestimate the energy of your smile
  2. Fight damage and prevent future collagen and elastin break down
  3. Skinfood Black Sugar Mask
  4. Only experienced the newbies discuss their respective encounters
  5. Suzanne vega, “tombstone”
  6. Plum Passion (Plum)
  7. Clear Winter

Rose Hip Seed Oil is a superb natural way to obtain Vitamin A so that it can help with wrinkles over time. I’m now using a retinol product at night (see below). I take advantage of a separate moisturizer and sunscreen to essentially increase up the hydration and safety. I continue to use CeraVe PM for my day lotion (the PM just means that it doesn’t contain sunscreen) because of the fantastic ingredients. It’s got ceramides, niacinamide, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid.

I read some research recently about niacinimides and all the great things they can do for maturing or acne susceptible skin so I’m way into them this year! Niacinamide is a vitamin B3 derived anti-oxidant that scavenges free radicals, it enhances the skins barrier function, it’s anti-inflammatory, and it reduces wrinkles! I apply CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizer all over my face, neck, chest and backs of hands. I discovered that this sunscreen includes only Titanium Dioxide which doesn’t display screen out the whole UVA band of rays (it screens some UVA which explains why it can still be tagged “broad spectrum”).
