Skincare: 5 amazing products to swear by!

      The Skincare market grows enormously every year! “By 2024, the global skincare market is estimated to be 180 billion U.S. dollars.” according to Statista.com. This means that there will always be new products and trends to get hip to!

     The latest trend in skincare is sulfate, paraben, and toxin-free products. Since we are in the age of information, research has offered us the beautiful option of becoming more conscious of what chemicals are going on our skin!

     As a professional, I have taken heed to this “trend” for my personal care, and for my clients! I’ve done a LOT of shopping since opening “Runway Aesthetics”, a one-stop shop for all beauty services including; waxing, skincare, makeup, and eyelash extensions!

      In my many beauty hauls, I’ve discovered some AMAZING (and affordable) products to swear by! I believe that sharing is caring, so let’s get into it. 

 

 

AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

The Ordinary 

     This exfoliating mask brightens pigmentation, fights acne, and softens fine lines/wrinkles with continued use. It is water-based, cruelty-free, and has a PH balance of 3.7!  

     AHA’s like; glycolic, lactic, tartaric, and citric acids help exfoliate the skin’s top layers for a brighter, more radiant look! Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, exfoliates inside pores to clear congestion. Tasmanian Pepperberry reduces the irritation associated with acid use. Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, a form of hyaluronic acid promotes a smooth, comfortable feel. Lastly, Vitamin B5 encourages healing and enhances surface hydration.

     This formula also includes Black Carrot, a botanical extract with antioxidant effects. 

I recommend using this once a week!
