3 new products to my skincare routine

It's been a whole month since my horrendous breakout and I'm at the point where my skin is almost fully healed. I still have some dry patches on my chin but my whole complexion is left with dark marks and scars. I'm slowly introducing new products into my routine and I have been dying to try some new products I have picked up in the last month.

Proto-col is a brand that I have been working with for a while and when they contacted me again to try out more products and restock on some of my favourites I knew I wanted to try their Collagen Serum. I am very much into my anti ageing products and I do have some deeper lines forming on my forehead. It contains Aloe Vera which helps soothe, heal and nourish. And also Chamomile to help with redness which I need very much. I use this morning and night after my toner and leaves my skin hydrated and fresh.

I have been reaching for this collagen face mask which can be used as a moisturiser too. I apply a thick layer for a good mask and wipe away. With my dry skin, this has been a godsend, it contains algae extra which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, neroli oil which helps with thread veins and scarring, zinc to help speed up the healing process and Jojoba oil. It has a slight floral scent but it smells very luxurious, I keep this in the bathroom and use straight after I shower or as an instant pick me up in the morning. My skin does feel more hydrated and plump as a sleeping mask/night moisturiser.

I have been looking into products that can help with scarring and came across this brightening serum, it claims to help with pigmentation issues, boost luminosity and rejuvenate skin. It contains Niacinamide which I was using previously from The Ordinary which I know helps breakouts too.  It comes out brown in a watery gel consistency and sinks into the skin quickly without leaving a tacky feeling. It has a slight floral scent and so far I have had no issues. I have been using this morning and night.

I'm excited to see results from these and hopefully helps face my pigmentation and dryness. What new products have you introduced into your skincare routine?

Until next time!
