Now that 30 has officially arrived and I'm starting to see the first signs of aging I've gotten way more serious about my skincare routine than I previously was. Not, that I was slacking I just wasn't using a handful of products every morning and night. Now, it's about fine tuning my routine to things that I actually need at this point like, hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid. I'm basically obsessed with all things glycolic, it's the only thing that keeps breakouts at bay on my troublesome skin (especially during pregnancy; yes it's pregnancy safe). Hyaluronic is great for hydrating my skin, particularly in the wintertime. Personally I look for those ingredients paired with more natural ingredients and sans parabens and synthetics. Most recently I was introduced and immediately became obsessed with the M-61 skincare line. It is amazing. While it's nearly impossible to play favorites I was able to narrow it down to three essentials that I officially can't live without. All are under $100 and can be shopped at BlueMercury.
