Staff Regimen: Marie

What is your skin like? My skin is a real trouble maker.  It’s oily… everywhere, but it’s also dehydrated.  It breaks out…..everywhere.  And there is sun damage…..everywhere.  Oh, and it doesn’t appreciate frequent use uses of aggressive products. I have tried this approach but it retaliates with redness and dry, irritated areas.  I have to coerce it into behaving properly with a balancing/ juggling act that I have choreographed over the years.  To top it off, I am trying to ward off signs of aging, so I have added a couple new products to my routine.

 

What is your main concern? All of the above.

 

What does your skincare regimen consist of? See below.

 

Morning

 

Cleanse: Topix Gly Sal 10-2 Cleanser – exfoliates and deeply cleanses.

 

Tone: PCA SKIN pHaze 2 Smoothing Toner –  I love it because it has an aloe base and is alcohol free.

 

Treatment #1: SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum – This is like 3 serums in one.  An anti-aging serum full of peptides and growth factors, an antioxidant serum to prevent and repair free radical damage, and a hydrating serum with sodium hyaluronate.  I could go on and on.

 

Treatment #2: Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion – I am lost with out this product.  Chemical exfoliators work best for my acneic skin.

 

Treatment #3: Lightener – SkinCeuticals Pigment Regulator –  Hydroquinone makes me red, so this is a great alternative.

 

Eye: SkinMedica TNS Night Eye Repair – Yes I use it during the day too!

 

Hydrate/SPF: DDF Mattifying Oil Control UV Moisturizer SPF 15 –  dries completely matte.  If I am going to be out in the sun longer than 20 min, I use La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid.

 

Evening

 

Cleanse #1: Cosmedicine Healthy Cleanse Foaming Cleanser and Toner in One – apply to dry skin.  This breaks up all makeup.  It is really meant for normal to dry skin so after I rinse this off I use my regular cleanser.

 

Cleanse #2: Topix Gly Sal 10-2 Cleanser

 

Tone: Yonka PG Toner – this helps purify the skin and is very anti-inflammatory.

 

Treatment #1: SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum

 

Treatment #2: Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion with Jan Marini Benzoyl Peroxide 5% on top or SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0.  I alternate, but some nights I skip this step all together to give my skin a break.

 

Treatment #3: Lightener – SkinCeuticals Pigment Regulator

 

Eye: SkinMedica TNS Night Eye Repair

 

Hydrate: H20 Plus Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment if I want something super light (it can also be used as a hydrating mask) or I use Jan Marini Transformation Cream if I want a bit more hydration and I really slather this on if I accidentally over do it on the retinol.

 

Weekly (As Needed)

 

Peter Thomas Roth Cooling Sulfur Mask is awesome for controlling my breakouts too.  I use it once or twice a week.
