A wake up call for 40-something sleep deprived skin
Even if you don’t have a colicey baby, you might relate to the following: your skin needs a wake up call, you like natural products and you don't want to spend too much. OK here are some suggestions:
There’s nothing like a glycolic mask for brightening the skin. There’s two that would be very good for our 40-year old mom, especially as she also mentioned open pores and dark spots. La Vie Celeste's glycolic mask ($60) is a really good product that uses natural ingredients but has a spa quality luxurious feel. It’s fairly gentle, but it’s best not to use more than two or three times a week to start and then when you see improvements cut back to once or twice. A lower cost alternative - with similar results - would be Juice Beauty's Green Apple Peel ($38)
Because wrinkles are not a major concern for my correspondent, I’m not going for the big guns, but am suggesting some good skin conditioners that I know that 30-something and 40-something members of the TIA community really like. Mad Hippie Vitamin C serum ($34) will also help refresh the complexion and vitamin C is good for hyperpigmentation. There was also a mention of “pimples” and so I also suggested taking a look at Your Best Face Balance ($45) because it has tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA). This was one of our ingredients to look out for in 2010. As well as being an antioxidant, it is anti-inflammatory and may hold promise for helping those with acne.
For an eye cream, I think it would be worth splashing out on Your Best Face Refresh ($80). The very budget conscious could take a look at Reviva’s DMAE eye cream ($19). A fantastic rescue after a sleepless night and before a much deserved break with your significant other is Chella’s new Anti-Fatigue Eye Mask Kit ($45).
Just wish I had something for colic.
