Ask any 20 something what they most want to improve about their skin, and the answer is going to be TEXTURE! Whether they use that exact word or not, texture is the biggest gripe anyone can have about their skin. Don’t like your pimples, fine lines, wrinkles, lack of radiance, greasiness, or redness? Yep, you want a better texture to your skin.
I always find that there are three main things that help me improve the texture of my skin when it’s not looking so great.
First thing’s first- my Clarisonic. Seriously, if this thing broke tomorrow I would have to go out and repurchase immediately. I find that the skincare I used to use that I thought was pretty good is actually AMAZING when I pair it with this beauty tool. I believe that when my skin is getting as clean as possible, my skincare is able to penetrate and do its job much better! I have the Clarisonic Mia 2.
Second, facial peels that target your skin’s problem areas will improve skin’s texture immensely. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel is a great place to start. I’ve used a few products from Dr. Dennis Gross’s line, and none of them have let me down. Simply put, this facial peel will diminish the appearance of wrinkles, balance oil, tone and firm skin, and more. Every time I use this peel (and like the name indicates, it can be used daily) I find that my overall skin texture is more radiant and my skin is clear. I definitely think a product that is a peel and can be used daily is preferable over a harsher product that’s not meant for every day. There are no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates in this product either.
Lastly, using high quality skin care is key to keeping your skin’s texture looking fabulous. I’ve been using Le Mieux Cosmetics skincare lately, and they really hit it out of the park with the quality of their products. Their Collagen Peptide Serum can be used morning and night, and is one of the best serums I’ve ever tried. It works to increase natural collagen and elastin production, combat UV damage, and give moisture back to the skin. Some skincare that promises hydration results in greasy skin, but not this! I find that my skin looks very radiant and glowing after the use of Le Mieux. After applying the Collagen Peptide Serum, I like to use their 24 Hour Age Defying Cream, which has multiple uses.
There is a lot of good skincare out there, but when is the last time your face cream could be used as…
- a superior neck treatment
- a luxurious décolleté cream
- a moisturizing chest créme
- an intensive stretch mark corrector
- an anti-aging solution
- a youth regenerating cream
- a revitalizing face lotion
My one and only complaint about Le Mieux skincare is that at the time being, it’s available to professionals online, or us regular people can order it over the phone. If you decide to give it a try, it’s well worth the time it takes to track down!
I’d like to give one of my readers the opportunity to improve the texture of their skin, just in time for fall. Up for grabs is one Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliation Pad set, worth $95.
These deep-cleansing pads harness the potency of Glycolic Acid, Chamomile, Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids in combination with fruit acids to exfoliate, smooth and soothe skin while improving firmness and overall texture. Formulated at maximum levels, these powerful ingredients penetrate skin to reveal a bright, fresh, youthful complexion. The innovative formula provides immediate exfoliation and preps skin to better absorb the antioxidant benefits and restoratives of other products in the Radical Skincare line.
