Until the age of thirty I always had, what I would call, GOOD Skin. I never suffered with spots, oily skin or dry patches in my teens or my twenties. All my skincare routine required was a splash of face wash followed by moisturiser. I have to admit I was guilty of falling asleep in my makeup after nights out on the town at university. None the less, I didn’t have ANY problems with my skin at all. Oh boy, has that changed…
In the past year and a half my skin has noticeably started going down hill. I get outbreaks of adult acne. Most of the time these are the sore cyst spots that sit underneath your skin and hurt like a b***h. I get an oily t-zone, have blackheads in my nose and often get a raised bump like rash across my chin. I have days when I get so frustrated with my skin I want to cancel on social plans, which I don’t think helps. To be honest, I think my skin problems come from stress, lack of sleep and perhaps hormonal changes. It also doesn’t help that I can’t resist squeezing and messing with my breakouts. Which is something I KNOW I need to stop doing!
Nowadays it just doesn’t cut it to slap on some face wash and a dabble of moisturiser. I need a full blown ‘adult’ advanced skincare regime. I find that serums have massively helped to repair my skin overnight and that I like to cleanse twice to make sure I remove all traces of makeup and dirt from my skin. One skincare brand that is new to the market, which I have been testing out for the past month is Celavive skincare by USANA.
Celavive skincare has been ‘founded on the science of beauty’ and products help to combat visible signs of ageing and stress. Ingredients help you to maintain healthy and smoother looking skin. You can explore which products are best for you here and I will list below the recommendations for my skin and the products I have been using. For reference I have normal to oily skin with dry patches on my chin and an oily t-zone. I was recommended the combination/oily regimen that you can shop as a bundle here.
PRODUCTS I HAVE BEEN USING
Creamy Foam Cleanser
Hydrating Eye Essence
Protective Day Lotion
Replenishing Night Gel
The most visible difference I have seen is that my skin feels brighter and I especially love the application of the Hydrating Eye Essence, which has a metal ended applicator that is cooling on the eye area. I also enjoy the ritual of a skincare regime and will definitely continue to have a daily advanced skincare regime and I would certainly recommend it for you too
