Few years ago I woke up and saw a red glaring pimple on my nose. I deafeated it but next day a new one was there and endless fight began. Each time I tried a new product (no matter, expensive or affordable) I was getting more desperate. It seemed I got the most stubborn pimples in the whole world and soon or late my poor nose would turn into red clown antic.
Lucky my story has a happy ending – I got pharmacy product called Skinoren and it’ active ingredient Azelaic acid saved my skin.
Cosmetics with Azelaic acid is a good chose for many of those who has oily acne prone skin.
Here are 3 products to check: PCA Skin‘ Acne Gel (it contains 2% Salicylic acid too), The Ordinary’ Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% and Sesderma‘ Azelaic RU Facial Serum.
P.S. I won’t be tired to repeat again and again: what is good for me, can be disaster for you.
Never apply any new products without approval of your dermatologist if you have severe form of acne.
We have a lot of fun celebrating Christmas and New Year holidays but each coin has two sides. Usually during festive season we drink more alcohol and sleep less and all that jazz affects our skin badly: alcohol dries it and lack of sleep makes complection dull.
Little helpers called face masks will help you to save your beauty while you’re parting.
Kiehl’s squalane and glycerin based Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask repairs your skin while you sleep, Freeman‘s Hydrating Cream Mask Manuka Honey + Collagen takes care of it’s softness and elasticity, Hada Labo‘s Anti-Aging Sheet Mask with hyaluronic acid soy peptides intensively hydrates and smothes lines. And First Aid‘s Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask with bisabolol, shea butter, sea buckthorn is a good choice for those who got a sensitive skin.
You get bored with face wash and cleansing milk? Go for cleansing powder!
Dermalogica‘s Daily Microfoliant with Rice Powder and Enzymes, Papain, Salicylic Acid gently exfoliates skin and brightens pigmentation. Antonia Burrell‘s Luminous Light Polishing Powder with Tea Tree Leaf Extract and Collodial Outmeal kills bacterias and reduces redness and inflamation. DHC‘s Face Wash PowderFace Wash Powder with Protease Enzymes and Honey dissolves dead cells and moisturizes skin.
By the way, cleansing powder is a perfect option for travel – no spillage in your suitcase.
P.S. Girls with spider vains on face: I’m afraid this option is harsh for our sensitive skin.
Flawless fair complexion is a precious gift from Mother Nature and your parents, but unfortunately it doesn’t last forever. Sun and time leave frecles and dark spot on our skin, so if you want to be Snow White Forever invest in SPF and brightening products, which suits your skin most. Here is some of them.
Clarins‘s Vital Light Day Illuminating Cream has lightening Spergularia extract in it’s list of ingredients and Garnier‘s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer enriched with exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxil Acid (LHA) which helps to even complexion. Both products contain SPF15.
And if you prefer to use consentrated stuff check SK-II’s GenOptics Spot Essence based on high-tech Spot Resist Complex and Biotherm‘s serum Liquid White Spot Focus with Red Algae Palmaria.
But be realistic and don’t expect miracles: all cosmetic products can’t change your skin tone or completely erase spots only even or make it less visible.
If you have spider veins on your face your better forget about scrubs because even soft beads can play havoc with your skin. Enzyme peels and peel-off and sheet masks will help you to clean your skin deeply but gently. Maybe one of the products from this short list will suit your delicate skin at most.
Extract of papaya – one of the most effective enzimes. Elemis‘s Papaya Enzime Peel and Ole Henriksen‘s Blue / Blackberry Enzyme Mask contain this precious ingredient, which dissolves dead cells efficiently and softly. Freeman‘s Cucumber Peel-Off Mask not only removes impurities, but moisturizes the skin with extracts of cucumber and aloe vera. Regular use of Patchology‘s sheet Exfoliate FlashMasque with Papaine and Lactic Acid is one of the easiest ways to achive glowing compexion.
If you want to have a beautiful skin you must thoroughly clean, moisturize and protect it from the sun every day and give it extra treatment every week considering your skin condition and needs (deep cleansing scrubs, moisturizing or nourishing masks etc.). And of cours, you have to find right products: it doesn’t matter if they are expensive or cheep – they must work best for you.
Skin care products reviews are tricky thing – what is good for me might be a complete disaster for you. So you have no other choice but to try different stuff and carefully observe your skin reactions. If you have very sensitive skin or other issues it’s better to do it under the supervision of qualified cosmetologist or dermatologist.
Sometimes skin around our eyes tell others about our age more than we want, so you have to care of this area more than properly.
You can do it with help of one of these products with different textures.
