Skincare can become complicated and confusing fast. But your daily routine doesn't need to be complicated to work! We've put together a potent multitasking regimen with just 3 products. This routine works for preventing signs of aging, belmishes, getting an even tone and supporting the skin barrier. The routine includes effective concentrations of retinol, niacinamide, peptides, ceramides and broad spectrum sun protection. It suits all genders, and works for most skin types. The total price tag is around $49 USD.
Here is why we selected these particular 3 products:
1. Sunscreen: Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-Age Super UV Face Protection SPF50 Cream. This sunscreen uses modern UV filters that give a reliable protection both against "burning" UVB and "aging" UVA rays. It also includes about 2% of niacinamide. This active adds an extra anti-aging & even tone benefit, and also supports skin barrier. This formula has a a good combo of humectants & emollients and works great as a day-time moisturizer.
2. Cleanser: Aveeno Calm and Restore Nourishing Oat Cleanser. It's a gentle affordable cleanser without common irritants.
3. Night-time moisturizer: Paula's Choice PC4Men Nighttime Repair. It is a hydrating fragrance-free lotion with about 0.5% retinol, peptides and ceramides. Even though this product is marketed for men, it is suitable for any gender. This moistruizer can have a strong anti-aging benefit, help reduce blemishes and even out the skin tone.
