I have taken the plunge into more seriously caring for my skin. I figured I could rely on good luck and good genes for only a limited time to maintain my skin looking younger than its years. I have for a long time used the basics of a drugstore or department store moisturizer, but that is about where my routine stopped.
So, I was excited to dive into my new skin care regimen with more effective SkinMedica® products to keep my skin looking its best.
The first step of this new skin care routine is the SkinMedica® Facial Cleanser—a soap-free, foaming cleanser that thoroughly removes makeup, dirt, and environmental pollutants from my skin. I have been enjoying this cleanser. My face actually feels good after using it. In the past I always rushed to slather on the moisturizer when I got out of the shower because my skin felt so terribly dried out from my cleanser. Now I still apply that moisturizer, but I don’t feel the same discomfort on my face if I wait a few minutes before application.
While I have not been outside much during our terribly cold Minnesota winter, I’m still relying on the SkinMedica® Environmental Defense Sunscreen™ SPF 50+. In winter, the sun’s reflection off the snow can be pretty harsh, so I’m happy to have protection that is oil free and fragrance free and perfect to wear under my moisturizer. I will appreciate it even more when I spend time outside taking my dog on long daily walks.
What I consider the real highlight of my SkinMedica® skin care line-up is the Lytera® Skin Brightening Complex. It is designed to improve the overall skin condition and brighten it—and I think it is doing its job. I have only been at my routine a couple of weeks, but I am starting to see a bit more evenness in the tone of my skin and an overall healthier looking complexion. I look forward to seeing the results in another month.
I’m headed down the right road with this skin care routine with SkinMedica® and plan to keep moving forward to even better, brighter, and younger looking skin.
