As a blogger, I’m always trying out the latest beauty products to hit the shelves. It’s a lot of fun to try out new products to see what works best with your skin and complexion. However, there is a downside. Trying a different product each week can cause my skin to get irritated and break out during my quest to discover the right products for me.
I decided to give SkinMedica® products a try as my gold standard routine—the skin care regimen that I would stick with when I wasn’t testing out other products that may or may not work for my skin—that would get my skin back to happy and healthy. I knew after the first few days of my routine that it would be the right fit for me. I was already experiencing great results!
My routine starts with the SkinMedica® Skin Polisher cleanser to first cleanse my skin. My skin can be dry in places so I like how the superfine polishing crystals buff away any dry and flaking skin. I apply a dime-size amount to my fingertips and cleanse in circular motions for about three minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Next, I apply the SkinMedica® Rejuenative Toner by spritzing the product onto a cotton ball and applying on my face in a circular motion. I love the tingly feeling when I apply it…so refreshing! And for the last step in my routine, I apply the SkinMedica® TNS Essential Serum®. This serum comes in a double-chamber package, so I apply one pump to the back of my hand and mix the serums together to activate. I pat it onto my skin before applying my makeup in the morning—or heading to bed in the evening.
My skin is noticeably smoother after adhering to this SkinMedica® routine. I’ll always love to flirt with the latest drugstore and department store products as a curious blogger, but I’m happy to say I’ve found my home-base routine that I can count on to keep my skin rejuvenated, hydrated—and healthy! I was also able to earn Brilliant Distinctions® points on these purchases so I have coupons ready for when I need more.
