Consistency is the name of the game
SkinMedica - Vitamin C Plus E Complex For all skin types, fragrance-free serum to be applied each morning. It helps to improve the appearance of skin tone, texture and firmness. SkinMedica - Age Defense Retinol Complex 0.5 For all skin types retinol to be applied in the evening. If you have never used retinol products before, start by using it twice a week and then gradually increasing frequency. Do not use if you are pregnant, lactating or planning to become pregnant. Personal thoughts - I always get compliments on my skin and it really comes down to consistency. I switch up my moisturizers but the two products that I keep the same are the ones above. I use vitamin c every morning and retinol about 2 to 3 times a week. I started to use retinol in my 30s and started with the very basic which was SkinMedica - Retinol Complex 0.25 . After applying it for more than a year, I switched to the 0.5 which is the product in the picture. At the moment I do not find it necessary to go above 0.5. I have noticed my skin is more radiant, smooth and firm when I use them. If I go a few days without using these serums, my face becomes dull and pores seem larger. I highly recommend this products.

Night Regimen 😻🔥💚 Sweet Dreams!
This is my current night regimen routine. I love these products and back them 100%. I am a licensed professional. I will admit the face wash and toner are not my usual go to’s but I was short on time and cash so I picked these up. I usually would use ComfortZone products for these two steps. I also am out of moisturizer 🤦🏻‍♀️😫 for this I would use SkinMedica as well. These products have takin me from acne to clear smooth skin! colorescience - AHA/BHA Exfolitaing Cleanser by SkinMedica SkinMedica - Age Defense Retinol Complex 0.5 N°7 - Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream SkinMedica - TNS Eye Repair

Best sunscreen for my face
As an esthetician, I cannot stress how important sunscreen is for your skin. But over the years, it started getting harder and harder for me to find a sunscreen that is high quality and not overly expensive. There have been times that I had to choose one or the other, I could never have both! That is until I found this product. This broad spectrum sunscreen (post procedure and sensitive) is light, fragrance free, feels like a moisturizer, and didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Granted it wasn’t the cheapest sunscreen ever, but when you combine the quality ingredients with the amount of ounces you get in one bottle (1.85 oz for a standard bottle), it’s definitely worth it!

Wanting to add one more serum to my routine
Need some recommendations for a new serum to add. My main concerns are acne, barrier restoration, and hyperpigmentation. My skin is doing better since starting this routine about 2 months ago. Just thinking it’s time to add another product. If anyone has recommendations that’d be great, something affordable I’d preferred and I love the ordinary

Best Dermstore Buys - Sensitive Skin w/ Acne
These items are perfect for combination sensitive skin with acne! I recommend using the BHA Paula’s Choice toner in a SEPARATE routine from the vitamin c serum/gel and the 0.3% retinol, as the combination of these could be irritating to some. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator is my favorite treatment for my mild acne - it keeps things at bay without totally stripping my skin and being too harsh (it is key to not layer up on too many harsh products as they will just irritate the acne more: redness, flaking, etc) TheSKINCEUTICALS - Phloretin CF Prevent Serum Antioxidant Treatment vitamin C gel is the only form of vitamin C that DOESN’T cause me to breakout! This is a MUST have for acne prone skin that wishes to incorporate a vitamin c into their routine. While I have been struggling with breakouts recently, my skin also has some pretty dry spots which is why I love SkinMedica - Ha5 Hydrating Complex for daily use (perfect for ALL skin types!) and Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cream for when my face is extremely dry (this is great for sensitive skin and dry skin - with the added benefit that it will not cause breakouts). I am in my mid-twenties and wanted to start using retinol sparringly in my routine while also being mindful of my somewhat sensitive skin, that is why SKINCEUTICALS - Retinol 0.3 is the only retinol product I recommend to frist-time/young retinol users! Let your skin get used to the product by only using it 2-3x a week at first. Once your skin is used to the retinol, you can slowly increase the % over months, or years. Sunscreen is the MOST important thing in a skincare routine (in my opinion), and for sensitive skin elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 is a great choice! This sunscreen can truly be used for all skin types regardless of sensitivity.

Review my routine (dry/sensitive skin)
Morning cleanser: I normally wash my face with warm water in the morning because my skin is so dry. But LA has been getting pretty hot lately so I started using Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser in the morning. It smells pretty nice and gets the job done. It's very gentle as well. mousturizer: I wrote about CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin a while back and it's still one of my favorites! The packaging is not ideal but I love its whipped cream texture. It's very light but also moisturizing. I've been in love with this cream! 🥰 sunscreen: I recently discovered elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 I prefer physical sunscreen because it's less stimulating and safer for sensitive skin. This sunscreen meets all of my requirements- it's light, moisturizing, safe for sensitive skin, and doesn't give this icky oily feel.  Night cleanser: I have been a big fan of boscia - Purifying Cleansing Gel it's amino acid-based and smells AMAZING! I normally avoid fragrance in skincare products but since face wash only stays on your skin for a few seconds it should be fine :) I've been using this cleanser for years. 😍 toner: I got COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid as a sample after I ran out of my last bottle of PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I'd like to apply it in my t-zone to minimize pores. I'm not very familiar with COSRX. But the fact that their label doesn't explicitly say BHA% kind of bothers me. serum: right now I'm rotating between 3 products 1. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' 2. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 3. SkinMedica - LYTERA 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum(the product I'm using has been discontinued and this is the upgraded version) Out of the three, my favorite is skinmedica. I know it's pricey, but after several weeks my dark spots actually started fading and no other beauty products have done that for me. If you know a good dupe for this, please let me know! I'm also looking for a good summer face mask - what do you recommend?

Skin Medica Vitamin C Serum Dupes
The SkinMedica - Vitamin C Plus E Complex even though it has vitamin e it did not help my dark spots the same way the gopure - Actives Brighten & Even Serum did. The SkinMedica - Vitamin C Plus E Complex is $102 compared to the gopure - Actives Brighten & Even Serum for $32. Bottom line is tripple the price doesn’t mean triple the effectiveness!

Some newbies in a silver & gol
Some newbies in a silver & gold theme. ▪️Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Foundation & Primer. First impressions of the foundation is that it’s superb. Really lightweight, semi-matte in a comfortable way. The primer I’m kind of not feeling it fully but needs more testing with other foundations . ▪️Rituel de Fille Rare Light Luminizer Icebow. This was a new shade only available in a set. I normally hate buying a set for one item but I love their Rare Light Luminzers and haven’t tried the concealer yet. ▪️May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon. I grabbed a new jar so I would have it in the fall. The free Youth Dew promo was too good to pass up. ▪️Allies of Skin Bright Future Sleeping Facial. This is the new reformulated version. No pilling 🙌 Use this for 2-3 nights in a row as a powerful brightener. ▪️Primera Miracle Seed Essence. I finally caved and grabbed it. Light slippery texture, nice glass bottle. ▪️SkinMedica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream. This has a thick texture but it’s actually pretty light. Great for soothing and repairing. ▪️Byredo Chai Candle. Warm & spicy.

THE BEST CLEANSER EVER
THE BEST CLEANSER EVER
FIRST POST BABY‼️ this is the best cleanser ever. my dermatologist recommended it and it changed my skin. my pores are way less clogged, my skin retains moisture better, and it doesn’t strip my skin like most cleansers. and the amazing part is that it takes off EVERYTHINGGG and STILL doesn’t strip your skin! you can have your face caked up and this stuff lathered up will take everything off. for real, i’ll run a pad over my face with a toner and there will be nothing there. i normally use it with my hands or a clarisonic brush. please enjoy my holy grail item💙💙💙

Skinmedica Retinol .5 is an absolute must-have in my arsenal. This bottle is empty and has already been repurchase. Nothing else has given me results like this: reduced acne, smoothness skin, refined pores, promoted elasticity. Every 3 nights is the sweet spot for this with me. I did have an adjustment period the first time I used this product because it was my first time using retinol and this is about medium-strength , as far as retinols go.
