In about a month, I am going to Florida for a (much needed) vacation. Which puts me in the market for a lighter skincare routine. I need products that won’t feel too heavy in the heat and humidity, but will keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
So I was happy to find a care package from Alastin on my doorstep.* The Restorative Skin Complex and the Restorative Eye Treatment feel light and absorb quickly into my skin. They won’t clog my pores or cause breakouts in the Florida weather or during the upcoming Hoboken/NYC summer.
Alastin contains TriHex Technology, a blend of three peptides that work together to reduce inflammation and promote the function of skin cells that produce collagen and elastin, Marina Peredo, a dermatologist in New York City, told me via e-mail.
“TriHex Technology helps rebuild the skin’s extracellular matrix (ECM) by clearing out the byproducts of aging that come from exposure to UV rays and pollution,” said Peredo. Eliminating fragmented, old collagen and elastin fibers allows for the production of fresh, new skin that is soft and supple.
You can buy Alastin Skincare online or at select providers near you.
My upcoming vacation has already got me thinking about summer skincare. Do you change up your routine in warmer weather? If so, how? (And you wear sunscreen all year round, right?!)
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
