If you have 100% perfect skin, you can skip ahead to the next post while the rest of us curse you as we try to figure out what we can use to give our skin the boost it needs. There are serums, treatments, fillers, and correctors for every skin concern out there. The only question is, which one would help you?
Calm Cool & Corrected by DERMAdoctor is a hugely popular treatment for red, inflamed, and broken out skin. They skip the salicylic acid and retinoids that some creams use in rosacea treatments in favor of skin calming ones like white tea, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera to name a few. This cream has a big cult following because it brings down redness quickly and even helps with the blemishes and dry skin that go along with the rosacea territory.
If immidiate gratification is your thing, Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist [CP+] won’t let you down. This ultra concentrated formula fills in wrinkles for skin that’s a lot less lined within minutes. Not only does a give a wrinkle-reducing blurring effect to the skin right away, but it also helps to improve the look of lines over time. Diminish lines now, and treat them for later.
I’ve always had hard time finding a primer that smoothes and mattifies the skin without causing breakouts. Something will work great for a few days, then it all catches up with me and my skin is a disaster. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s All-Over Blemish Solution thinks it’s a acne treatment, but it as all the hallmarks of a great primer. It minimizes pores, controls shine, and gives the skin a really even finish. You’d never guess it’s helping to eliminate blackheads and acne at the same time.
I keep Freeze 24/7 Freeze & Go in my kit so I have something to bring out the brightness in the face when I’m applying makeup on a girl who just didn’t get enough sleep the night before (ahem… hungover.) It somehow brightens up the face and adds some life to an otherwise dull complexion in minutes.
