Each year I look forward to Fall, when new beginnings and new challenges keep me busy. While I love to hold on to the lingering end-of-summer evenings, the juggle of back to school schedules and work projects is imminent. A busier schedule means more stress, which can wreak havoc on skin.
We all know the damage stress can do on skin. From wrinkles to acne, and everything in between, it is important to keep as healthy as you would keep your body, in order to fight environmental and emotional stressors. Hydropeptide’s Anti-Wrinkle & Clarify Collection helps fight skin stress, reduces the signs of aging and fights acne. In addition to several other Hydropeptide products I have used over the last year, I have been using this regime for the last few months, and once again am completely impressed with the line. Below, read about the products in the collection and their skin benefits.
Step 1: Hydropeptide’s Purifying Cleanser is the first step in the anti-wrinkle + Clarify collection. A small dime size amount is all you need to use. Begin with dry skin, and gently massage, then rinse with warm water. My skin responds well to salicylic acid, but most formulas contain 2% which can be harsh. Hydropeptide’s formula contains a ‘pore-cleansing peptide” which works with a smaller concentration of salicylic acid (.5%). Bonus: This cleanser doubles as a mask that is amazing for weekly use.
Step 2: Follow the cleanser with Hydropeptide’s Clarifying Toner Balance and Control Pads. Saturated with with pore-cleansing peptides derived from pearls, skin is left toned and clear. It amazes me how many skin-saving pads are included in the container. I am still using a few months later. I take these with me when I travel for late-in-the-day skin refreshers.
Step 3: I was very excited to try out the Redefining Serum, after having great luck with the Redness Repair & Relief Soothing Serum. And the Redefining Serum is no slacker. Powerful yet gentle, acne fighting peptides smooth skin and fight new breakouts. The formula is surprisingly not drying, for how well it works. Touted as a ‘2-in-1’ anti-aging and skin-clearing serum, it contains similar pore-cleansing ingredients as the cleaner as well as anti-wrinkle peptides and sebuckthorn berry which calms irritation.
Step 4: Finally, finish off your anti-wrinkle and anti-aging skin care routine with Hydropeptide’s Spot Correcting Acne Eliminating Treatment. The tiniest amount works and zaps any blemishes faster than anything I have tried. Use as needed, either morning or night or both, a thin layer provides fast results. Anti-microbial ingredients like B Vitamins and Colloidal Sulpher clear blemishes and help prevent new ones from starting.
