Day 4 - Anti-aging
Sunscreen, Vitamin C & Retinol my trifecta keep my skin supple for as long as possible.
@eltamd UV Clear 46 is both physical (zinc oxide) and chemical (Octinoxate). I love it because the texture is flawless and it doesn't leave any cast on my brown skin.
@deciem Advanced Retinoid 2%, I've been using this every second night for about 4 week, haven't had any peeling or breakouts. I feel its far too early to see any results. I would like to use this in conjunction with a stronger retinol every other nugjt. My aim is to build up to trying tretinoin late next year.
@drdennisgrossskincare C+Collagen I would repurchase this serum, my skin is a little brighter and i haven't had any new pigmentation spots since commencing using it. This serum contains 3 types of vitamin c, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbic Acid &
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. It also has niacinamide, which is interesting because I thought the two cancel each other out?? Plus Superoxide Dismutase which is the star ingredient in NIOD SDSM2. I love that this serum is housed in a pump, alleviates my paranoia about it oxidising. I still have so many questions when it comes to Vitamin C.
