I recently reacquainted myself with the very important lesson that pick and choose skincare is not always your friend. After a lot of frustration with trying so many things and not being impressed I put everything aside and used an entire line for 60 days to see if I could hit the reset button on my skin. All that aside, and more to come in a future post on that subject, here is what was in my December “try outs.”
After spending so much time focusing on hydrating the skin after a long winter, now it’s time to nourish. I switched out my usual toner for one without the glycolic acid. I love it for chemically exfoliating my skin, but I prefer to do that in the winter when my face is less exposed to the sun. Now I am using Liz Earle’s Instant Boost Skin Tonic, which you can find on Birchbox. Just a few of the main ingredients are aloe vera, cucumber, calendaula, chamomile, and vitamin E. Vitamin E is a superstar because it’s a fantastic antioxidant.
