Happy Monday ladies. My weekend seemed to race past which I fear will be the pace for much of the next few weeks. There are so many things on the go and lots to get done that I’ll need to be extra vigilant to schedule in time for self-care.
The self-care for my skin became critically evident when I got home from my trip to Canada and had a look in my 15X magnifying mirror! I travel with this suction cup magnifying mirror but it’s only a 10X which doesn’t tell the true story of my skin.
I’ve been using Curology for several years and love that they can combine ingredients to give me what I need for aging skin and clear skin. I’d requested a recent change of formula to include a stronger percentage of Retinol and before I blinked twice, my skin went into a free fall.
It became dry and dehydrated with lackluster texture and more wrinkles than I’m used to seeing. I upped my water intake while doing a deep dive into skin products and care. I discovered several skincare systems I’m intrigued to learn more about and introduced me to some new products that I added to my regime. In truth, I completely revamped my skincare routine, but that’s for a longer post.
I began patting several layers of this Tatcha Essence to my face and neck immediately after washing. I love the way it feels and my skin seems plumper before I even get to the next step. When that is dry, I swipe on a few drops of this Hydrator B5 Gel which is loaded with hyaluronic acid. Then I add a few drops of my favorite Blue Tansy Oil before I move on to sunscreen.
I’ve also added this LED mask to my regime which I could not love more! Let me just add a few more exclamation points to my endorsement!! This is amazing. I’ve been studying about LED light therapy masks for years and when I came across this one, I knew this was it!
I’ll have a full review upcoming but it’s selling out almost everywhere so I wanted you to know about it now. I love it so much I just ordered this version for my neck and chest!
My skin is responding quickly to these changes which lets me know it was time for a change. It takes a few extra minutes to add the essence and hyaluronic acid but the effect is amazing. The LED mask? A warm treatment that’s good for my skin and my mood.
Have you changed your skin routine lately?
