My skin had been worse than usual the past year. I really struggled to find products that worked. Some would make me break-out more than usual, others were too harsh and dried my skin, and some made me feel like an oil slick. Nothing I did worked. I ordered tons of products, tried home remedies, literally everything. I tried oil cleansing, face washing contraptions, different routines- seriously, everything. Finally I gave the line of Chanel skin care products a try. It worked. It certainly wasn’t over-night. It took a few weeks to see the real improvement in my skin, but once I did I couldn’t stop using their products! I’ve since had women stop me and ask me what I use on my skin and what makeup products I use- which was a total first for me! Now, I naturally have acne-prone skin, not crazy but I usually always have a small break-out or two.
So here’s the scoop on what I use. I don’t use their facial cleanser, I use this Neutrogena cleanser. I then follow it up with the Chanel Hydra Serum (just one pump.) Then, Monday-Friday I use the Le Jour Moisturizer, Saturday and Sunday I use the Le Weekend Moisturizer, again just one pump. Last step is the Percision eye cream (I’ve been using this for a few years and still love it!) Now since it’s winter I’ve occasionally needed more moisturizing power, for that I’ve added in this Simple Face Moisturizer instead of the other moisturizers. Its thicker and really makes sure my skin has the drink it needs. If it’s really bad, I’ll use this Kiehl’s Concentrate. It’s basically an oil that I put on instead of the serum- I only ever do this at night though.
I also make sure to wash my face with my finger tips only, I try to be really gentle on my skin so I don’t pull or tug at it. Make sure your water temperature is luke-warm, any hotter and it will dry your skin out. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel at the very end, don’t wipe. The biggest thing is to be super consistent, every morning and night. NEVER sleep with makeup on! I used to be really bad about this, but since I vowed to change my ways and really take care of my skin, it’s literally 1000x better. I can finally leave the house without makeup on and don’t fee self-conscious about it. If it’s a late night and you really can’t manage to wash your face, use one of these makeup removing wipes and put some simple moisturizer on after, don’t make this a regular habit, but in a pinch it’ll make a difference.
Now, the Chanel products, are not the most budget friendly; however, these bottles have lasted me for about 6 months using it twice a day, the eye cream lasts even longer. You really don’t need more than a pump of each to cover your entire face. I would highly recommend them if you’re really battling your skin and are still breaking-out.
