The Skincare Routine That Has Changed My Skin!
So first of all, let’s check out these before photos:
Here is my skin now!Now, my skin is much smoother, less bumpy, and I don’t have as much redness overall. It’s no longer dry or uncomfortable, and I am pretty much blemish-free.
So… What have I changed in my skincare routine?I’ve added 3 new Dr. Belmeur products into my skincare line. Years ago, I tried out the Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Skincare Collection and I loved that line as well (I swear, Dr. Belmeur just has great products!) and so when the Nature Collection team reached out for my to try these new products out I was really excited. First of all, I love mists. Second, I love Dr. Belmeur’s moisturizers. And third, I have been on the hunt for a super gentle exfoliant like the Dr.Belmeur Vita Serine Tone Smoothing Serum for a while.
Let’s Talk About the New Additions to My Skincare Routine!
Dr. Belmeur Vita Serine Tone Smoothing SerumThe Dr.Belmeur Vita Serine Tone Smoothing Serum is an exfoliating serum that aims to brighten up dull-looking skin while also hydrating it so that your skin will have a smoother and healthier appearance. This serum is made with an amino acid known as “serine” which is derived from vitamin C and is known to moisturize the skin while also improving the texture of the skin. In addition, this serum has hyaluronic acid which also helps your skin achieve a more plump and youthful appearance. This serum has a very light citrus scent which disappears as it’s blended into the skin.

Dr.Belmeur Advanced Cica Hydro CreamThe next product I’ve added into my routine is the Dr.Belmeur Advanced Cica Hydro Cream! This cream is a very gentle moisturizer which is great for sensitive skin types. It aims to soothe sensitive skin and moisturize it so that you can be free of the discomfort of dry irritated skin. The moisturizer itself is a gel-cream formula that makes it really lightweight yet moisturizing on the skin. Its light citrus scent is bright and refreshing without being overpowering.

Dr.Belmeur Cica Peptite Intense MistThe final new product in my skincare routine is the Dr.Belmeur Cica Peptite Intense Mist. This mist is so beautifully fine that it really is just like a soft veil when its sprayed over the face. It’s light and refreshing and super soothing on dry skin. While I tend to use this product mainly in the morning, you can really use it whenever – during your morning or evening skincare routine, or simply for a midday refresh.

My Skincare Routine: The Best Skincare Routine for Your Late 20sNow that we’ve talked about the products a bit, let’s get into my actual skincare routine – start to finish! My skincare routine is really all about targetting those pesky signs of aging while also balancing some of the newer challenges (ugh, blemishes) that my skin has experienced over the last year. While I’m not really someone who is scared of getting older or having wrinkles (in fact, I think some wrinkles are really beautiful – like the smile lines around peoples eyes), I do want to ensure that I age gracefully and that I care for my skin in all ways possible – from removing dirt, grime, and makeup, to using products that target unwanted fine lines and wrinkles, and also protecting my skin against harmful outside influences like pollution and the sun.
