I have always practiced being a minimalist when it came to my beauty routine and many of you already know that but over the past year or so, I have come to love quite a few products that you should know about! I speak about many of these over on my IG feed, but I am teaming up with Colleen Rothschild to talk about some products that I introduced over the past 5 weeks or so that I really love. I always love to look up the products I use (beauty, household, etc) on safety ratings websites like the ewg or skin carisma (this website is still in beta) to see how they measure up. As I talk about the 3 products I use from Colleen Rothschild, I will also link up their rating!
Best part about this post is that they are currently having their friends and family sale and you can get 25% off your order! This is the best time to scoop these up since they are pricey!
First up, Vitamin C Treatment Complex
I will be honest with you when I say that up until about 3 months ago, I never even THOUGHT about using Vitamin C on a daily basis but after talking with a few different people, I realized how necessary it was and I will tell you why in just a bit. I started using Colleen Rothschild Vitamin C Treatment Complex and have already seen a huge difference in my skin. Prior to use, I looked it up on Skin Carisma and the product ingredient breakdown measures up really well – 92% low risk. You can read about that here!
WHY VITAMIN C IS IMPORTANT
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which means it can help inhibit free radical activity. Free radicals are unstable molecules caused by stress, exposure to the sun, pollution, etc that can cause cells to function poorly or die. Vitamin C helps promote and maintain the production of collagen. which is an important protein that keeps your skin firm and toned. As I get older, I realize that this is a product that I needed to add to my daily regime to combat aging.
I use Vitamin C before applying my daily lotion to my face
Mandelic acid is a gentle yet highly effective alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and it is derived from the bitter almond. This serum gently exfoliates and breaks down dull skin cells that live on the surface of your skin and over time, you will notice a brighter and more healthy complexion. It also helps to inhibit dark spots and uneven skin tones, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps unclog pores. You can check out how it measures up, safety wise here! I would not use this product if you have really sensitive skin!
I use Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum at night after washing my face and before applying my overnight lotion.
This is one of Colleen’s most raved about products and measures up pretty well here! This products effectively fights six signs of aging including texture, dehydration, elasticity, fine lines, radiance and tone. This is a concentrated formula that contains more than 20 amazing ingredients that help restore your skin’s complexion to it’s most youthful state. If you were to decide between this product and the mandelic acid, I would definitely choose this one and wear it day and night!
I typically use this every morning underneath my makeup and I alternate it at night with the Mandelic acid.
I know that it can be pretty overwhelming to learn about the different products we can use to protect our skin against aging but it doesn’t have to be! I am still a work in progress over here but I can finally say that I am nailing down my routine and I am feeling pretty darn good about it!
