An easy way to clean up your (skincare) act
Do you ever feel like you need to pare down your skincare regimen and get back to basics? My skin started breaking out like crazy a few weeks ago, and I decided to scale back my skincare and keep it as clean as possible—and it just so happened that some goodies from C2 California Clean showed up a few days before. This new range of anti-aging products stays true to its name by being free of parabens, fragrance, petroleum and other yucky stuff, without sacrificing results.
This simple three-step system features four products that cover most of your skincare basics (you’ll have to insert your own cleanser and SPF), and starts with the Advanced Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer, which is a mega-moisturizing oil-free fluid that instantly absorbs to plump up the skin, while leaving absolutely no residue behind. In fact, if not for the smooth, soft, juicy skin it delivers, you wouldn’t even know you applied it. (This stuff is really, really good.)
Next up is the Apple Stem Cell Regenerating Serum. This lightweight formula is bursting with biologically based ingredients that work to kick-start your skin’s collagen production, improve uneven skin tone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles as it hydrates.
The final step in the morning is the Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Crème, which contains plant-based stem cells, peptides and antioxidants to seriously smooth wrinkles and help the skin act (and look) younger.
The evening routine is the same, but you’ll want to add the sold-out Ultra Replenishing Oil Squalane + Vit E (get on the list, pronto!). This rejuvenating treatment helps strengthen your skin’s barrier to maintain optimal moisture levels, boosts elasticity, protects against free radicals and goes to work on fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots—and gives your skin the ingredients it needs to regenerate while you sleep.
Needless to say, my skin has cleared up, and it looks healthy and radiant—almost as if I went on a juice cleanse (which I didn’t). I’ve also come to appreciate the simplicity, and the extra time I have in the morning and at night. If you’re looking to take a cleaner, more streamlined approach to your skincare routine, this is the perfect place to start.
