I get asked all the time, "What are your top skincare must haves from Amazon?" Let me start with this, not all items on Amazon are legitimate products from that brand, so be careful! I always make sure I double check the product I am buying is being sold from that brands Amazon storefront. For example, when purchasing a Paula's Choice product, I triple check that it's being sold from their store- see below.
Ok, now for the fun part!
How to use this product: grab your mask and spray the acne spray directly onto the side that touches your face. Now, let it dry! This step is important for two reasons, 1) You don't need any additional moisture touching your face and 2) you don't want to interfere with the efficacy of your mask.
Best for: All skin types but especially acne and blemish prone skin.
Why this product works: The salicylic acid in this spray is the key to avoiding maskne! The acid goes into you pores Salicylic acid penetrates into your skin and works to dissolve the dead skin cells, dirt, and sebum clogging your pores. Not only does salicylic acid fight against acne, it soothes the skin. Peace out, Maskne!
How to use this product: Apply to clean skin in the morning before your moisturizer and SPF.
Best for: All skin types, everyone should have a Vitamin C serum in their morning skin care routine!
Why this product works: Vitamin C enhances your overall complexion by boosting collagen production, it shields your skin from environmental stressors, can help heal blemishes, and reduce hyperpigmentation.
How to use this product: Apply a quarter size amount to clean skin in the morning after your moisturizer has been applied. Make sure you also apply it to the front and back of your neck, your ears, and your the back of your hands. Reapply during midway through the day.
Best for: EVERYONE! All skin types should wear SPF. This formula is especially great from acne prone skin.
Why this product works: Supergoop's antioxidant-rich facial sunscreen helps protect against, UVA, UVB, & IRA RAYS - blue light (skin damaging light emitted from your phone, computer, & tablet) This formula also works as an amazing makeup primer!
Note: My clients always ask why it is so important to wear SPF everyday. The answer is simple, if you don't want skin cancer, sun spots, or wrinkles- wear sunscreen! It's estimated that 90 percent of our skin's aging is caused by the sun. People who wear a daily sunscreen with at least SPF 15 show 24 percent less skin aging than those who go without. Also, all the fancy skincare you buy? There's no point in using it if you're not protecting your skin.
How to use this product: Apply to a freshly cleansed face one to two times weekly.
Best for: All skin types but especially acne and blemish prone.
Why this product works: Snail Secretion Filtrate, and Bee Venom which is excellent anti-inflammatory properties and is great for acne proned blemished skin. Most people strip their skin with harsh acids and products when trying to treat their acne but I have found that hydrating your skin makes more of an impact on healing and treating your acne.
How to use this product: Apply to a freshly cleansed face after moisturizer and in place of SPF.
Best for: All skin types
Why this product works: This is a tinted moisturizer/SPF 40/serum, I saved the best for last because this is the Holy Grail of skincare! Do not sleep on this Product!
