The Skincare Routine that Reduced My Redness and Texture

Let’s talk about skin, baby! Ugh … skin. I remember the days of firm, clear, glowing skin that I always got compliments on. Never a concern in the world. I was one of those lucky teens who never went through that awkward acne phase. And then I hit my mid-twenties. And then I got pregnant. And then I turned thirty. And then I had the baby. And now I’m 31 and OMG my skin hates me.

* #1 piece of advice to EVERY young women, teen, anyone with a face: WEAR SUNSCREEN. Always. I wish I would have done that more often instead of the baby oil. *

I know things change with age, but I certainly was not prepared for my skin to do a complete 180. I suddenly started seeing redness take over my cheeks, then enlarged pores, then texture, then breakouts. My makeup looked like crap on, and I wouldn’t dare walk out of the house without putting a little something on my face to cover it up and cover up the redness. I wouldn’t say it was like adult acne, but it was certainly something deep down in my skin that a gentle cleanser wouldn’t fix.

I spent years trying everything. I tried three different lines from Rodan + Fields. I tried sensitive skin and gentle products. I tried high-end products and all-natural products. I tried complete lines and I tried miscellaneous products from various brands. I’d see minor improvements, but nothing drastic.

And then I went to LASH for my very first facial. You can read more about that here, but basically my esthetician opened my eyes to what was really going on with my skin and what I needed to do to treat it, and introduced me to a few Image Skincare products that she thought would really help. And she was SO right. I reached out to Image Skincare to see if they’d be willing to partner with me and send a few products for me to try and review, and they were gracious enough to agree. I’m happy to report that they have changed my life and I want everyone to know how amazing their (and a few other) products are!

Instead of writing a crazy long post, I decided to film a video sharing details about each product that’s making a difference for me, talk a little more about my skin, show you before and after, and walk you through each step during my night time skincare routine.
