My skin is dry even in the summer, so the change in seasons to winter requires an even more amped up moisture routine. Even with my new supplement routine, I need something fairly rich when the heaters kick in. Granted today it was 90 here in Oklahoma, but I know a chill is just around the corner.
Another plus to added moisture – lipid depletion can add to the look of aging. So adding natural compounds like ceramides and fatty acids can enable skin to repair itself. SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti aging cream formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids: 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. These ingredients work to restore skin’s natural barrier and promote self-repair. Not to mention, this recipe can smooth and add radiance. The innovation of this product lies in the specific ratio formulation: 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant.
I use morning and night – just a small amount between fingers warmed and melted, pressed into skin. I adore the minty scent, especially to awaken skin in the morning. This is ideal for my fellow dry skin suffers or those with sensitivity. Available at SkinCeuticals.com and right now with code OCTOBER, get a complimentary Blemish + Age Defense Sample.

I usually shy away from powder foundation, but I’ve been following a new supplement routine that has my normally dry skin a little more oily and glowy. So this powder foundation landed on my desk at the perfect time. bareMinerals foundations have always worked well for me. My skin drinks in the mineral formulas. And the shade range is solid in my light to medium tone so it is easy to get a perfect match. I am currently using Natural.
This new powder version is long-wear powered with vitamins and minerals. The pigments work to perfect complexion. And also improve skin clarity over time. I use the BAREPRO Core Coverage Brush and tap the foundation into my skin.
Micellar Water, once a hot new beauty product here in the States, is now almost ubiquitous with loads of brands having launched their own versions. But the original is still my favorite. The French Bioderma’s Micellar Water is such a classic. And, in my book, cannot be improved upon. One bottle is sold every two seconds around the world. Models, artists and celebrities swear about it.
I use it morning and night. In the AM, it plays more of a role of a toner. At night, I use it to remove makeup and as a second step of cleansing. I love the purity, lack of scent and the fact that it doesn’t irritate my skin. The formula works to restore balance and pH level.
