There’s nothing like emerging from COVID hibernation and having our mother ask if we’re feeling sick. Or tired, maybe? Or both?
So. Umm. Yeah.
It can’t be our hair triggering Mrs. Regina George, because we just had it professionally highlighted and cut. Which can only mean it’s our face.
We’re not going to say that we didn’t consider going the burn book route, but looking pretty and being kind always trumps a Mean Girl move. So we’re using SkinCeuticals Glycolic Brightening Renew Overnight, instead. And yes. It’s just that good.
For starters, like the name says, it contains glycolic acid—a 4 per cent glycolic free-acid content—the smallest of the alpha hydroxy acids, which means it can penetrate our skin deeply, loosening up dead skin cells to promote new, fresh cells to shine through. As well, it banishes the appearance of fine lines, so our skin looks healthier and younger. The product’s corrective formula also contains 2 per cent phytic acid, an excellent exfoliator that works to replace a dull appearance and texture with a glowing one. Last but not least, its 1 per cent infusion of botanical oils soothes our skin, while locking in moisture. And even though we have sensitive skin (and feelings), we’re able to use it every other night without irritation.
We just hope our upcoming visit with Mom will be the same.
