I did battle cystic acne in my mid 30’s and thought it would never end. After spending thousands of dollars on lasers, facials, every over the counter acne treatment, about half a dozen acne prescription medication, eliminating sugar, dairy, gluten NOTHING worked. Miraculously after 3 photodynamic treatments set 4 months apart, (yeah, they really hurt), my acne cleared up about 6 months after my final treatment. Yippee!
Now, I keep my routine simple. Yes, at times I get roped into to trying the newest eye cream, but I keep coming back to my loyal favs. I started using SK11 brand right after my PDT treatments. The ingredient, pitara saved my skin. Seriously. It healed it. I will never, I mean never stop using it every single day! I wash my face in the morning with AVENE thermal water on a cotton round pad then I use 4 drops of Skin Ceuticals C E Ferulic. After my workout and shower, I splash SK11 Pitera Essence over my face and neck, then I dab on Neocutis, Lumiere eye cream and lastly apply Elta MD Suncreen before any makeup. I continuously mist rosewater or a hydration setting spray throughout the day to keep my skin feeling dewy and plus I love the scent, it gives me an energy boost! I put on STELLARGIRL glimmer lotion to my upper body every day because I love to sparkle and, in the fall/winter I’ll use Aveno lotion on my legs and feet.
At night, combined with warm water I use Cerave hydrating facial cleaner (it removes all eye make-up too), followed with Bobbi Brown hydrating face toner, a dollop of SK11 RNA power cream and lastly, Innisfree spot treatment before I go to bed. I found Innisfree in South Korea. The women have such beautiful skin there!
Before heading to bed, I apply organic coconut oil from a jar all over my body. It liquifies once you rub it into your hands and then I apply to my skin from my neck down to my feet.
Gee, it sure looks like a lot of work when you write it down but literary takes 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night! Sleep tight, wake up, and repeat!
Love, Teri xo
