I’ve been struggling with my skin. I’m 39 and I still have occasional break outs. How cruel is that? To have laugh lines AND acne? Very, if you ask me.
I go to a great esthetician for waxing and she told me that my skin is dry. This was news to me since I am all about moisturizing morning and night. “Stop treating your skin like it’s 16 years old” she told me. Apparently all my efforts to zap the blemishes were drying out my skin. Instead of getting rid of the zits, it was creating this parched desert on my skin which only made the break outs continue.
So I ditched all my Neutrogena products (she says they are very drying, fyi) and am now on a regime that includes Aveeno Positively Radiant products, some Mario Badescu night lotion, and one very expensive serum.
She swears that if I use these products my skin will be picture perfect come my wedding day. And while that’s important to me, I’d just like to get a handle on it for every day.
What’s your skin regime?
