- Question: Hello! I recently got a dermaplaning facial at a medspa, and my esthetician pointed out that I have very rough, uneven skin. My face also feels very dry a lot of the time, but I still seem to get shiny by the end of the day, so I think it is dehydrated. She recommended Skinceuticals Retexturing Activator (for daily use), Skinceuticals Glycolic 10 Renew (for weekly use) and a physical exfoliator once per week. The Skinceutical products are expensive, so I was hoping for a second opinion before I break the bank, as well as any suggestions for what else I could add to my routine. Cleansers, moisturizers? I was looking at the Glytone cleanser, but wasn't sure if that would be overkill with the glycolic acid. I am trying to avoid retinol and salicylic, since we are about to start trying for a baby. Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the brand Eminence , this a a Ceritified Organic brand , theirAge Corrective Starter Set would be a great way for you to get introduced to the brand. I would add a couple of products theirNeroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist for after you have cleansed. Their Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel would be a great treatment to give your skin periodically.I would also recommend that you print out the ingredients and consult with your OB just so you will fell comfortable using these products. I hope this helps, have a nice day! Cyndee, Dermstore Esthetician
