Daytime skin regimen
Hi, I just turned 36 and need a good daytime moisturizer to go with the Obagi vitamin c serum and my SPF cream. I have dehydrated combination skin with medium pores, so I would love something that can help with hydration and minimizer pores but would not cause me to break out. I also use Obagi Elastiderm eye cream, and Skinceuticals retino 0.5 at night. Thanks for your suggestion!
I suggest you incorporate a hydrating serum into your regimen. Serums are intense treatments, therefore it will provide you with plenty of hydration, without being too heavy, which may cause you to breakout. Consider Cellex-C Hydra 5 B-Complex. Keep in mind, our pore size is genetically predetermined, and the pores will also get larger as we age. Unfortunately we cannot permanently reduce the pore size. There are temporary fixes though such as Credentials Camphor Pore-Minimizing Masque. Please contact me with any further questions.
