Known the world over for their famous cleanser, once voted by Vogue magazine as 'the best cleanser in the world,' any new addition to this range is met with excitement from our eager to experience staff members. Thus was the case when the Eve Lom Moisture Mask arrived across my desk. I've been a little rough on my complexion lately using strong exfoliation products to fight hormonal skin so a little bit of moisture balancing was definitely needed. The Moisture Mask coats face with skin quenching Vitamin E, Aqua Complex and Sodium Hyaluronate to satisfy your skin's thirst and leave it softer and rehydrated. This will definitely be an item to add to my beauty routine 1-2 times a week to give my skin a little R & R.

After going off the pill a couple months ago to try and get pregnant I thought my skin would remain having its occasional breakout, but normal skin tone. Boy, was I wrong. Initially when speaking to friends who'd gone through skin changes due to fluctuation of hormones I thought I was lucky and had somehow bypassed all the acne and oily skin that typically occurs when you go off the pill. Literally one day I was talking about how my skin had remained the same and the next it was like a war had broke out on my face with no hope of surrender. Washing my face became a nightmare, instead of the feeling of smooth skin, it was replaced with rough skin texture and a nagging need to want to start popping blackheads every night. Gross, I know.
When you get pregnant you need to be wary of what skincare ingredients you can safely put on your skin. Your normal routine of highly active ingredients might now be a no-no for the next nine months. Because my husband and I have decided to wait a few months until my hormones level out before we start trying I gave myself the green light and recently purchased some pimple fighting products from one of the leaders in skincare, Peter Thomas Roth. Whether you're experiencing your own battle with acne congestion due to going off the pill or problematic skin in general, here are a few tried and tested suggestions:
Whether you have hormonal skin or not, everybody and I mean everybody can see results when using a Clarisonic. I don't care what one you choose to invest in, the power of sonic cleansing speaks for itself in the thousands of lives it has changed. With special brush heads that work together with gentle vibration to remove blackheads, gently and effectively exfoliate the skin, as well as improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles; this is a cleansing device whose results speak for themselves. Washing your face with your hands will be thought of as the dark ages in no time at all.
Peter Thomas Roth's Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash sounds like it will be very drying and cause cracked lips and nose but that couldn't be further from the truth. Gentle yet very effective, this oil free acne wash gives a deep cleanse while 2% salicylic acid helps to loosen sebum, clear pores and prevent future breakouts.
I love a great peel but some can strip the skin to harshly which can then lead to other problems. Peter Thomas Roth's Gentle Correction Pads are a favorite of mine (and Allure magazine) as they won 'Best Peel' in their Best of Beauty awards. With a peach bellini scent, regular use of these exfoliating pads will reduce the appearance of fine lines, clear blackheads and refine pores. I like to them once a week!
A great night treatment is essential to keep all the good work going while you're getting your beauty sleep. Peter Thomas Roth's Acne Spot and Area Treatment is a maximum strength, yet non-drying topical treatment that works quickly on a single blemish or can be used on larger problematic areas to fight present and future breakouts. You could use it during the day but I don't really like to because it does have a sulfur like smell that can be noticed if you get to close to people.
I hope these pimple fighters work for you as well as they worked for me. Remember, if you're pregnant you should consult your physician prior to selecting new skincare products!
