One step skincare is turning into my favourite skincare. What I mean by this a cleanser, moisturiser with retinols, peptides, barrier repair and acid resurfacing creams that are a one stop shop, no layering of little bottles of serums in sight. The serum/lotions/moisturisers that also contains antioxidants, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and glycerine humectants, are loaded with peptides and have enough emollients so they work as moisturisers too (all you need is to add the spf and you are set). At the moment they tend to be a little more expensive – but then they are aiming to replace three of some people’s usual daily serums, plus an eye cream, neck cream and even lip cream. The following are my favourite one stop skincare that my rosacea skin likes
AHC Eye Cream for Face is a cult favourite Korean formulation is designed to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while supporting collagen production to naturally firm and plump the under eyes for a youthful-looking visage. A restorative blend of vitamins and peptides revitalises and nourishes to restore a natural radiance. Well worth the money, and I have brought more than one of these, its lovely on my rosacea skin.
Olay Retionol24 combines two of the most powerful skin care ingredients: retinoid complex and Vitamin B3. I have used this product multiple times and had no problems. I have also used the eye cream all over my face. This is a thicker cream which I actually preferred. A new one, the Retinol24 MAX came out with 20% percent more Retinol24 Complex than the originals; this includes retinol and retinyl propionate. This is then blended with vitamin B3, creating a proprietary mix that delivers retinol’s transformative perks while still keeping your skin hydrated and happy. I have not got around to trying this one yet.
Dr Dennis Gross C + Collagen Deep Cream with vitamin C, collagen amino acids and a whole host of other powerful nutrients. Infused with a concentration of nourishing oils extracted from Camellia Japonica Seed, Sunflower Seed, and Rice Bran to provide skin with moisture and help reduce water loss. This is a lovely cream that once I have used up all my serums. I will probably just buy this, as it worked so well on my skin. But I have to make sure, I get it for the right price. It is not cheap at all.
By Terry Hyaluronic global face cream – A combination of 8 hyaluronic acids works alongside renowned skin saviours niacinamide and phytosqualane concentrated at 5% in an exclusive Youth-Glow Complex. While hyaluronic acid delivers incredible water retention properties – it holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water – niacinamide and phytosqualane are known to protect, improve uneven skin tone, diminish dullness, illuminate the skin and combat pigmentation. Niacinamide is also proven to help to fade blemishes quickly. This is perfect for the summer as it is very cooling on the face. I noticed this when I had a high temperature in the winter.
With some of these, in the morning, I can cleanse and tone my face, and then a single step serum or moisturiser and then finished. I am a big fan of these products.
