What do you do to your skin everyday? You probably cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and protect. For me, a skincare devotee I believe beauty has evolved and doing what our mothers did is no longer good enough. After all 30’s are the new 20’s, 50’s are the new 40’s, and 70’s are the new 50’s! You no longer have to wait for your high school reunion. We are going global, everyone and their mother is on facebook, comparing how each other looks. Doing the bare minimum in the skincare world is no longer good enough. In the age of Botox injections, lasers, and plastic surgery, it seems hard to keep up. Today I’m here to talk about an evolving skincare routine. For myself I layer up with many products twice a day and I change my routine every 2-3 months, as I believe skin gets used to products and it’s efficacy plateaus. But I also customize my serums and creams on a daily basis since my skin may one day feel prone to breakouts where as the next it feels dry and dehydrated. Our skins are forever changing, depending on the cycles, seasonal, monthly, daily, etc. Therefore when I’m dedicated to creating my own serum mixture my skin looks the most radiant. My all time favorite serums are Complexe Iribiol for breakouts, Fluide VIP O2 and Silk Plus for hydration, and Infinite Radiance Essence for a Vitamin C boost. Winter is the toughest time of the year for our skin and we should all change our skincare routine with the season. Try to switch on and off with active ingredient products like Retinol or Vitamin C by Environ to AHA Creme from Biologique Recherche. These are the strongest anti-aging products I use. Yet swapping them for hydrating serums and a richer moisturizer from time to time allows the skin to regenerate and rebuild. Skincare should be fun, it’s like switching your wardrobe for the colder season. You’ll layer more, cover up more, and keep your look updated. Instead of flat, dull, and sallow skin opt for dewy, glowing, skin every winter day. My advice is to customize a haute couture skincare routine just for you!
