What I Wish I Was Wearing

I’ve had and used this retinol on and off, now that I am stuck inside, it is the perfect time to start using retinol in my routine again. When using retinol, I have to stop using all other actives, I learned this the hard way. So no more acid exfoliator like P50 and my favorite Farmacy serum. I’m not sure if everyone is as sensitive to retinol as I am but this is what works for me. I still get some peeling but it’s really mild right. For me this is the most effective way to lighten dark spots.

I only use retinol at night after cleansing and toning, where I have the most dark spots. No need to overdo it and use a bunch of product, trust me, I also don’t put any around my eyes. I like to let is set for about 20 minutes then follow it with a good moisturizer, although lately I’ve been exclusively using the Youth to the People hydrate + glow dream mask on top, followed by a few drops of Indie Lee squalane face oil. I make sure to warm four to five drops in my palms then press it into my skin to seal in the moisture.

During the day, I just cleanse, use a toner and vitamin C serum followed by moisturizer and SPF. My current vitamin C serum is this one by Obagi.

My current toner is the CoQ-10 toner by Indie Lee and day moisturizer is Drunk Elephant Protini Cream.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by. Remember you can subscribe here to get my posts directly in your inbox.
