Tuesday Beauty: The New Skincare Plan

After my facial at Supple, this is the line-up of products I am working with. I wanted to try something "natural" and this was the arsenal I was "prescribed." While this is not entirely approved by my dermatologist who worries about the scents that might irritate skin, I am giving it a go to see what happens as we had a bit of a flare up again before the facial. It goes without saying that I am just a lay person telling you what I'm trying, a guinea pig of sorts. I have no particular knowledge except the condition and reaction of my own skin. This line up will cost you a pretty penny, that's for sure, but I'm going to give it two months and see what happens! I'll keep you updated.

1. Clearcalm 3 Cleanser: This is a cleanser for blemish prone skin. It smells pretty nasty, but I soldier on!

2. Clearcalm 3 Fluide De Jour: This is an interesting product. It is a day cream. It doesn't contain sunscreen, so that is something to be aware of. It mattifies and creates a slightly strange feeling on the skin, which I imagine is the product creating a kind of oil barrier of sorts. Use only a little amount of it, or it will leave a white residue on the skin.

3. Dr. Hauschka Soothing Mask: While this is technically a mask, Alison suggested I use it as a night cream. I use just a bit and leave it on all night. My skin feel very moisturized in the morning.

4. Clearcalm 3 Treatment Mask: An anti-acne mask to be used twice a week. Unlike many masks, it doesn't harden. It remains creamy on your skin during use. I think it might be taking my skin for another purge...

5. Bio Retinol Anti-Ageing Concentrate: This one smells good. A bit like white peaches. I use a tiny bit on my occipital bone (under my eyes) to combat millia, the tiny white dots on the skin that are not pimples and don't really go away. Anyone else have those nasty little buggers?

As I said, I will keep you posted on the pros and cons of going au naturel!
