Over the last few months I've had the opportunity to work exclusively in the make-up department at the Nordstroms, Mall of America. During this time I have tried many new and old skin care products. Now this could have been very dangerous for me as I am a product junkie, a sucker for deals & results they promise to give. I also use a cocktail of products in my daily beauty regimen and too many isn't an issue. After trying and comparing dozens of products I have settled on my few favorites in my daily routine. I am absolutely in love with the results that I'm seeing in my skin. The craziest part about it...I'm not using a moisturizer! I find it unusual only because I been using a moisturizer since the beginning of time. I have very dry skin and desperately used creams not just in the morning and night but throughout the day to relieve my tightness . It took some time to get used to with about a week of slight tightness but eventually it went away. Who knows, I may revert back to moisturizers as soon as winter approaches but for the time being I'm happy without them.
I'm sure you are all just itching to find out what I have been using so here goes...
Next I layer Dr. dennis Gross's Active Vitamin D Serum Oil. This product gives you immediate results in the radiance of your skin. It also gives you your daily dose of Vitamin D without having to bake in the sun and adding more damage to your skin. It helps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, heals the past environmental damage, while leaving your skin with a luminous glow.
Before putting on the Vitamin D Serum I add Philosophy's Turbo Booster C Powder in the A.M. only. Vitamin C has many benefits to the skin but I use it for the boost in antioxidants that fight premature aging. Vitamin C is key to the production of collagen that gives the skin its firmness and strength. It is also slows the rate of free radical damage that causes dryness, lines & wrinkles. I like it best in powder form because the potency deteriorates over time in liquid. So by keeping it dry it will retain 99.8% of it's potency.
