I’ve always been concerned with my skin, but it seems like over the past few years, I’ve been paying extra attention to what’s been going on on and beneath the surface. Blame it on my job. Working with skin care brands has taught me a lot about my skin and how to take care of it. So much so, that I’ve created and adjusted my skin care routine into one I’m finally happy with. Now, I have a day and night routine that include products from Vichy, Kiehl’s, La Roche-Posay and my new holy grail products, Ole Henriksen.
I’ve incorporated four new products in my routine – Sheer Transformation moisturizer, Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster, Invigorating Night Gel and the Power Peel Professional Spa Grade Kit.
The first step in my routine is the Truth Serum. This oil-free serum is enriched with five-source vitamin C complex to support natural collagen production, brightens and minimize fine lines. It also defends from environmental aggressors and free radical damage, a must when you live in the city. This serum is light and absorbs quickly. Plus its citrus scent is so uplifting in the morning.
Sheer Transformation is step 2 in my daytime routine. This light moisturizer literally melts into your skin. It’s also infused with vitamin C, but also licorice root and pea extract to help fade dark spots, uneven skintone and prevent premature aging. Its formula also includes botanical fruit acid to gently exfoliate. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration and leaves my skin looking fresh and bright.
At night, I use a serum and eye cream and the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel. I don’t use it every night, but definitely on most nights. It’s a light gel that refreshes the skin. Its formula supports natural cell turnover and works over night to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smooth skin’s texture. My skin looks beautiful and hydrated every day when I wake up.
The other day I was in Sephora and a girl asked me what foundation I was wearing. I instantly blushed, I wasn’t wearing foundation. In fact, the only thing I was wearing was mascara and lipgloss. Compliments like that are the reason I love these products so much. They are some of the few that have actually shown the results it promises. I can’t say enough great things about this brand and highly recommend it.
Do you have an Ole Hanriksen favourite?
