After going through adolescence with no acne (lucky me!), I started to have minor breakouts as an adult. I attribute some of this to stress. Acne was something I had never dealt with and I wanted to keep it that way, so several years ago I decided to try Proactiv. I started with their basic package, which included a cleanser, toner and repairing lotion. It worked wonders for me. Since then, I’ve modified the Proactiv package to only two products, the deep cleansing wash and the toner. I exfoliate with deep cleanser and restore with the toner. These have become staples in my beauty regiment. Recently in an effort to maintain a youthful glow and prevent early lines & wrinkles, I added a trio from Clarins to my daily beauty routine. The multi-active renewal serum is a base that “stimulates the skin’s natural exfoliation process, for an even skin tone and a soft, supple complexion and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles.” The day correction cream “delivers anti-oxidant protection from the harmful effects of pollution and UV stress”, and the night recovery cream “complements the benefits of day cream by helping to enhance radiance, firmness and tone for a more youthful appearance by morning.” These have been great additions, they are light-weight and non-greasy. They do the trick and help me maintain a fresh and healthy look.
