January is a time when many of us rethink everything–our closets, diets, exercise regimen (or lack thereof), skincare regimen, work focus…..the list goes on. After I read this article in Net-a-Porter in which a dermo-pharmacist suggests that your skin tires of routine treatments and that the occasional intensive session of different products can create changes in your skin, I thought, yep, trying that.
The dermo-pharmacist, Dr. Colette Haydon, talks about adding “actives” as in retinols, skin peels and peptides to your routine. I’m quite happy with my regular routine (Elemis Nourishing Omega Rich Cleansing Oil face wash, Biologique Recherche P50 1970 and Uma’s Absolute Anti-Aging Oil and Vintner’s Daughter Botanical Serum), but am all about giving my skin a boost. What I am going to use? Not sure yet. Definitely a retinol product, which I used to use often and have gotten out of the habit. Time to work on getting that New Year/New You glow. Also love to hear your product suggestions!
