More times than not, we get consumed in thinking we need to be using every skin care product we come across. I’m here to tell you, that’s not true! Finding the perfect skin care regimen is a lot of trail and error. However after reading this blog, you’ll understand what your skin care regimen should include and when you should be using what!
When picking out your full skin care regimen here’s what you should consider:
- Corrective serums
Let’s Get Active
For true results in the skin, it’s ideal to use products with active ingredients. Medical grade skincare allows a better result and correction in the skin because of its percentage of active ingredients. This is the main difference between over the counter and medical strength.
After you find a brand you like, I highly recommend using SkinCeuticals, then you can get to picking products.
Morning vs Night
Your AM and PM regimen will differ just slightly. Some products will be used for only day-time use and others for night-time use.
For the most effective skin care regimen- it should include an antioxidant and SPF. Antioxidants, such as Vitamin C serums, help protect the skin from the sun, address discoloration, and seal the skin from damage of free radicals. Another protectant for AM use is SPF, 30+ is recommended for best protection.
For the most effective PM regimen. It should include a corrective serum, including Retinols , Glycolic, and Hyaluronic Acid paired with a replenishing moisturizer.
My Personal Recommendation
Although this can still be a little overwhelming, I find it very helpful to start with at least THREE of the most important.
My top 3 from Skinceuticals include :C E Ferulic (an antioxidant)- this helps prime my makeup, protects my skin from sun damage, and provides moisture preventing fine lines and wrinkles.
I also can’t live without my toner, Equalizing Toner allows my skin to be balanced, I never feel too dry or oily because the use of a toner will help stabilize the pH in your skin.
To complete my shortened regimen I have to have a moisturizer, Triple Lipid is anti-aging, replenishing, and aids the skin from excess dryness and oil.
As noted above, your skin will be its happiest with products plus procedures. Seeing your esthetician for monthly peels and facials will help get your skin to where it needs to be to see results! Everyone is different and requires different things, I’d love to help you complete your personalized regimen here at Millefiori! See you soon ????
