As a former Aesthetician, I have tried literally hundreds of skincare products over the years. There were some winners and some losers, but with every new product I learn more about my skin and which ingredients work best of me. Over the years as the needs of my skin changed, I had a wider variety of products to experiment with, with varied results. Though I will not rule out extreme measure in the future (hello Botox 2025), for right now Im sticking to as many natural products as possible. A few months ago I was introduced to InstaNatural brand and their Glycolic Peel, which provided a less intensive alternative to actual Chemical Peels. Since then I have been a fan of this brand and the few key products that I have used.
Gone are the days when Chemical Peels incited the images of flamed red skin peeling like wallpaper. These days the Glycolic Peels come in an at-home treatment package that you can use at your own convenience and set your own frequency. The cost has been cut down from hundreds spent at a dermatologist’s office to being very affordable. Even though I have tried Glycolic Peel pads and creams, my favorite so far has been the InstaNatural Glycolic Peel that I can just pump onto my hands and spread all over my face with my fingers. At less than $20, this is definitely a steal!
Its a professional grade exfoliation treatent and can visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, discoloration and pores! I started using it once a week in the beginning to now almost 3 times a week!
VITAMIN C SERUM
There is nothing more beautiful than clear luminescent skin that glows and the best way to achieve that is through Vitamin C serums. It has proven to eliminate dark spots and discoloration through sundamage or acne marks. Me being a brown girl, Im very prone to dark pigmentation on my skin. Ever since I started to take skincare seriously in my mid-twenties, I have been religious about wearing sunscreen, which ofcourse helps with the sun damage, but the occasional acne that I get always tends to leave a spot that lingers on for months. VitC serum is the answer to cut that time of getting rid of discoloration from months to mere couple of weeks.
Recently I have been using InstaNatural VitaminC Serum twice a day, which keeps my skin supple and bright because of its infusion with Hyaluronic Acid and Seabuckthorn Oil. Additionally I have used this Serum mixed with a regular moisturizer on any dark areas on my body that I want lightened up like the elbows,knees and underarms. This Serum is a Win-Win with its effectiveness and yummy tangy smell!
Cleanse, Tone , Moisturize has been the mantra of good skin for ages. However with the added steps of serums and eyecreams, most people forget about using a good toner to balance skin out. Cleansers have a PH balance to open up the pores so all the dirt can be extracted. The toner which are recommended right after have a PH Balance of closing the pores so nothing else gets clogged in. Ive been loving this Dual Phase Mattifying Toner from InstaNatural. This toner gives skin a matte appearance with natural extracts such as Willow Bark, Peppermint and Lavender. It smells absolutely amazing and the Kaolin Clay in this absorbs excess oil on your skin, giving it a shine-free and radiant look throughout the day!
DAILY MOISTURE REPAIR
Best thing you can do for your skin is keep it moisturized with natural ingredients. After all my cleansings, masques and treatments, I always look forward to adding that last layer of Moisturizer to seal everything in. When I was younger, having oily skin, I always used to be very stingy when applying a moisturizer to avoid being more greasy. However now I know that skin only produces more oil to compensate for the moisture its lacking. As skin cant produce moisture, it produces Oil, so the best way to solve that issue is giving your skin a healthy dose of moisturizer. InstaNatural Daily Moisture Repair is the best moisturizer with Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid and Calendula Extract to sooth your skin while giving it the best moisturizing treatment !
