Even though I am California girl and am blessed with living in this beautiful mild climate, winter time still wreaks havoc on my skin. I tend towards normal to dry during most of the year, but during winter and I am even drier and my skin gets flaky and a bit sensitive–and it is buggy and annoying. So now more than ever I need effective yet gentle exfoliating products and great hydrating products to keep my skin smooth, moist, supple and well hydrated–and a couple of Kate Somerville’s fabulous products are really doing the trick right now and I’d like to share them with you.
Mirco Glycolic Polisher ($90)
This is a professional-strength treatment peel (this is used on celebs in the KS Clinic BTW) that contains a wonderful combo of glycolic and lactic acid which gently exfoliates, resurfaces and restores the skins texture. It also contains blue lotus extract which has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits to calm the skin and fight against free-radical damage.
The reason I am loving this product so much is because it does a wonderful job of exfoliating my skin in a very gentle yet effective way.You can put this peel on your skin for a few minutes (no scrubbing necessary this is a non-abrasive exfoliator) and instantly see a smoother texture–however a KS insider recommended leaving this product on overnight and the results in the AM are AMAZING. After a night time application of the Micro Glycolic Polisher, my skin is soft, smooth, even toned and free of my pesky dry winter skin. Genius!
This is a Kate Somerville cult favorite product because it has a superior hydrating complex that locks in water so your skin stays quenched 24/7. It also contains the most advanced form of Vitamin A which counteracts aging for a more youthful appearance. This magical product gives your skin continuous hydration and a gorgeous, glowing dewy complexion.
This is my all time fav KS product because it truly delivers constant moisture to the skin. I especially love this product in winter because my skin is starved for hydration and this really does the trick. I use it immediately after cleansing and then apply my moisturizer on top which results in luminous, happy, hydrated and healthy looking skin. This product ROCKS!
