Protecting thy skin is a worthy cause, no? Looking snack (AF!) while smelling delectable is a winning situation everyone should find themselves in as often as possible. Try the following skincare products and bear witness to the transformation of your skin before your eyes. They’re best of this month!
Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier Serum:
This rich, multi-functional serum boosts your skin’s Hyaluronic Acid levels, which helps attract and retain as much moisture as possible. Increasing your skin’s H.A. levels prevents dryness, keeps skin supple, and helps to slow down the visible signs of aging. One dropper full spreads easily across the face and absorbs very quickly into the skin. Combined with a good moisturizer, like the Essential Creme Fluid from AmorePacific, increased clarity in complexion and smoothening of the skin is noticeable within a few days.
G.M. Collin Phyto Stem Cell + Mask:
All it takes is 15 minutes. A mask that hydrates the skin intensely to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and which may also be used as an overnight treatment mask for extra hydration. The G.M. Collin brand has a range of products that actually work and this one is no exception. The recommended twice weekly mask is creamy and spreads easily over the face. It is also lightly fragrant, my only complain, as I don’t like my skincare products to have any fragrance, which can be irritating to some skin.
Patchology Aquaflash Daily Gel Mositurizer:
For a while, the beauty business was all about hydrating gels – I think it was sometime last summer that everyone was going on about adding those gels to your skincare routine. Patchology, which has been rolling out some really cool products, launched their Aquaflash hydrating gel with Hyaluronic Acid and I must say, that is the key. The HA helps the skin retain as much moisture as possible, for a really bright skin tone and soft skin. The gel absorbs quickly and doesn’t make your skin too shiny. For anyone who needs that moisture boost, this is the perfect product and you really feel the coolness on your skin.
Light by Chaz Dean Eau de Parfum:
Okay, this eau de parfum isn’t skincare, but I strongly believe that when your skin is looking so radiant, you should smell good too, to compliment the glow. You know? It’s like having a bomb outfit but shoes that are falling apart, they go hand-in-hand. That said, Light has a clean, fresh scent, with it’s top notes of lavender, eucalyptus, and blood orange oils, combined with woodsy notes of cedarwood, bergamot, and white amber. It’s the perfect scent for spring.
