Vitamin C for skincare
If you're looking for a skin care active that offers a plethora of skin-healthy traits, vitamin C is one of your best bets. Not only does it offer quick, superficial benefits (like brightening), but it improves skin cell function at the cellular level. Not only do I eat a lot of foods packed with vitamin C I also want to put it on the surface of my skin. The one that's most likely to get your attention is vitamin C's role in collagen production. It doesn't just stimulate collagen production; it stabilizes the collagen you have, leading to overall wrinkle reduction. The general skin care rule is prevention by day and repair by night - yet vitamin C falls under both categories! So you can wear it in the morning for an insane glow over sunblock or wear it at night. I love this one from One Love Organics Botanical C Moisturizing Facial Serum, because it's plant powered formula uses two potent sources of Vitamin C, synergistic C boosters – organic green tea and Vitamin E. The formula is so nourishing and feels like a warm hug on your face. I always wake up looking radiant, and have a more even-toned complexion.
My Favorite Face Serum ✨🦋
Guys I have dry skin, so I’m always on the lookout for something that will keep me hydrated all day. Murad - Revitalixir Recovery Serum I love this serum. It smells amazing, feels so super luxurious, and you can instantly see results after the first use! Not to mention the serum has a slight shimmer, giving you a vibrant, dewy look. It’s meant to soothe stress lines, reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles, and renew vibrancy “immediately and over time.” Reasons to Love: The Outer Gel: Wild Indigo- fights skin stressors Neuropeptides- address visible wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions Caffeine- combats the appearance of fatigue Niacinamide- refines skin texture The Spheres: Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil- its a source of omega 3, 6, and 9, which helps soothe and relieve dryness.

MY EXTRA NIGHTLY SKIN CARE ROUTINE💤✨
My nightly skin care routine is identical to this one, minus all the masks. About once a week I will use masks for the added benefits as well as for self care. Depending on my skin concerns at the time, I will choose masks that are targeted for said concerns. Products: - Lip mask: KNC BEAUTY - All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask I have been using this product for awhile now and love how hydrated it leaves my lips. Also, the added collagen in the mask is a plus. - Face mask: FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask I love this mask because it brightens up the skin and purifies by removing dead skin cells etc.(be careful about using a vitamin c mask with retinol) - Eye mask: PACIfICA - Leave Pretty Anti-Puff Eye Patches this is the first time I used these eye patches. At first they were relaxing but within a minute they started to sting. - Eye cream: OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème I love this eye cream because it’s so light weight and brightens up the under eye. - Face serum: SKINCEUTICALS - Retexturing Activator Face Exfoliator this product is really effective with evening out skin texture. - Retinol: Tazorc retinoid - Face Roller: Omorovicza - Rose Quartz Facial Roller when chilled, it helps with inflammation and helps to set in serums and creams. - Moisturizer: face reality - Clearderma Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin using a moisturizer locks all your previous products in. - Neck moisturizer: OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer a little of this product goes a long way. - Lip balm: eos - Coconut Milk and Cherry Vanilla Stick and Sphere Lip Balm What do you think? Too many steps? Am I missing something?⬇️🥰 🎶: Show Me That You Love Me - Space Pirate | (Tune Room edit)

1+1>2, you should try the combo!😍
When I use skincare products, I found that some products use together do not have great effects. For example, two products are function for moisturizing, but when I use them as a set, they do not give my skin enough moisture, even both of them mentioned for hydrating. In this situation, it always confused me and bother me. The better way I would do is trying some new products and see if any of them could work with new items. One the other hand, sometimes I would really surprise by two products that work together perfectly. In recent month, I found a set, and I am excited to share with you. sisley - Black Rose Precious Face Oil As one of my favorite serums, I have to recommend the face oil again with her partner. Rich in Omega3 and Omega 6, it gives my skin the condition to prepare for the rest of my daily routine. The powerful plant active ingredients are integrated to nourish the skin, promote regeneration, and provide protection. The oil infused the skin with youthful virality and is essential. As the name, black rose essence is at the heart of the recipe, creating a wonderful, silky, soft texture for the skin. It contains soothing effects and deeply awakens the senses. After using for a while, my skin became smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, rejuvenate the skin and restore a bright complexion. But as I said before, if you are oily skin type, it may not be a great product for you in summer time. sisley - Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream The partner of the face oil is this black rose face cream. The trio of exceptional roses, which are black rose, alpine rose and may rose, give the cream great effects of protecting sensitive skin. The texture of the cream is really interesting. It seems like rich cream, but when you apply on your face, the cream melts to water texture. Hydrating, bright the skin tone, smooth and shiny the skin and anti-aging are the main functions. I think all these effects are visible, and you would really feel the different after you use it. Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil and Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream are a great set for giving the skin moisture, and smoother, brighten you skin.

Expensive💰=Effective✅? For Chantecaille, my answer is...
Anti-aging is always my concern.The Chantecaille Diamond Series features anti-aging ingredients including hexapeptide and plant extracts. I've tried several products for a long time and some of them really surprised me. CHANTECAILLE - Bio Lifting Serum+ Besides peptides and plant extracts, it also contains hyaluronic acid, so besides tightening and restoration, it also helps in moisturizing and trapping water. It has a gel-like texture and is easily absorbed by the skin when one whole dropper is used each time. It's also lightweight but moisturizing, which might be a little sticky for oily skin but suitable for dry skin in spring, summer, and fall. It does a great job at maintaining skin stability, and since using it, my skin has remained radiant even when I stay up late or the seasons change. If you need an SOS serum, this might not make the cut, but if you want a product providing you with a comprehensive anti-aging effect, you won't go wrong with this. CHANTECAILLE - Bio Lifting Cream+ This upgraded version of the lifting cream has a higher concentration of its active ingredients, enhancing the lifting and tightening effect while providing an anti-inflammatory and recovery effect, so even people with sensitive skin can use it. It has a soft, lotion texture with a runny consistency. A small amount is sufficient for the entire face, but it's slightly oily, so people with oily skin might find it a little greasy and it can't be easily absorbed. I could visibly notice its tightening effect after finishing a whole bottle, and it did reduce my expression lines and dry lines, especially smile lines. My skin looks plumper now and my smile lines have also been filled out, so I'll definitely repurchase it. CHANTECAILLE - Stress Repair Concentrate+ Eye Cream Its ingredients include hexapeptide and wheat protein for fighting wrinkles and reducing fine lines, caffeine for reducing puffy eyes, and finally plant extracts for reducing pigmentation. It has an average texture which spreads easily, but it's nothing special. It's oily, and feels like it balls up when first used, also creating a warming sensation around the skin of my eyes which irritates my eyes a little. Besides reducing puffy eyes, I don't see it doing much else so I don't think it's worth its price and I won't repurchase it. CHANTECAILLE - Bio Lifting Mask Directions: After cleansing, apply it evenly on your skin for 10-15 minutes, then wipe it off (no washing required) and follow-up with your usual skincare routine or just use it as the last step of your skincare routine. The most visible effect of this lifting mask is the brightening of skin complexion. It can be used as an SOS mask after staying up late, allowing you to wake up to smoother and more delicate skin. The skin radiance and tenderness can last for up to a few days. When there are signs of inflammation of your skin, such as swollen pimples, this lifting mask helps to soothe your skin and get rid of acne while effectively reducing dry lines. It's suitable as a regular anti-aging treatment or an SOS face mask. It is more easily absorbed compared with a normal face mask and it doesn't stain pillows. CHANTECAILLE - Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask The lifting mask focuses on anti-aging but this healing mask focuses on moisturizing and soothing, and is more suitable to use in dry weather, during season change, and for repairing sunburned skin. If you have sensitive skin and are not looking for anti-aging, but rather moisturizing, maintaining skin stability, improving skin redness, etc., then it's good value for money. The Chantecaille Diamond Series is not cheap, but most of its products can be used by people with sensitive skin, balancing anti-aging and skin restoration. Are you a fan girl for Chantecaille? What's your fav anti-aging skincare products?
