I'm on day three of a new skin care boot camp. San Francisco's cold, sunny, and windy weather has been doing a number on my face. My skin is naturally dry anyway, and super parched after walking a few miles outside each day. Plus, I've had a huge teenage style pimple on my chin. Blurg.
Out with the super thick Lancome sunblock, the irritating cold cream and the too-harsh Purity cleanser. In with a new regime based around Kiehl's ultra facial cream.
This super moisturizer was developed for mountaineers in Greenland and uses plant extracts from Antarctica/Australian desert to keep your face hydrated all day. I love the marketing pitch and it is amazing so far; really light and durable. And not crazy expensive either.
I'm also testing out the Kiehl's milk cleanser and their toner. I haven't used toner since junior high. Apparently, you should apply it in the morning because it helps your skin absorb moisturizer. Who knew?
So far, so good. My face is actually hydrated for more than a few seconds and there's no sign of a breakout. Keep your finger's crossed!
