bliss Triple Oxygen Cleansing Foam | SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel (on sale!) | Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
After the facial, she was nice enough to chat with me about what she observed… like I said, this facial was LIFE CHANGING. I explained that my skin was super dry from the winter air, so I was moisturizing like crazy. She then explained to me that thats exactly what was making me break out, creating a vicious cycle. Basically, I needed the stuff that was actually going to hydrate my skin, without all of the chemicals/additives/oils that could block my pores.
Enter: SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel. I decided to buy it and try it out the day she suggested it, and now I don’t ever want to live without this stuff! Seriously, I just bought two more backup bottles because it’s on sale on Amazon! It hydrates my skin, evens my skin tone, and helps brighten any dark spots that I created from being impatient and popping pimples I never should have popped. Again… gross, I know. (embarassed emoji!) She also told me about bliss spa’s Incredi-Peel wipes. You don’t need to use these no-rinse peel pads every day, but when you do, they’ll exfoliate and smooth your skin without irritating it by using this crazy weird technology that releases glycolic acid over time? Haha I mean, I don’t need to understand it, all I know is that they work great!
So, the moral of the story is that it only took me until my late twenties (ugh) to figure out how to properly take care of my skin. Better late than never though, right?!
Ok, now I’m done. Your turn!
