Staff Regimen: Macey

What is your skin like? Like millions of people I would say I have a combination skin. My t-zone is oily (especially in the warmer months), and the rest of my skin is normal. I  have to watch what I use on my face because I do break out easily.
Skin concerns: I try my best to keep my skin clear and use preventative products. My forehead can get very oily and I get the occasional break out.
Morning
Cleanser: Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel
I use this cleanser once a day to keep my break outs away. The combination of salicylic acid and glycolic acid helps prevent\treat breakouts, unclog pores and remove black heads without over drying or irritating my skin.
Toner: Avene Thermal Spring Water
I would say this is a must have product for all skin types! I use this morning, night and throughout the day. It is very hydrating, calming, and really helps balance out my skin.
Treatment: SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF
My daily antioxidant serum. Protects against the harmful effects of the environment, helps even out my skin tone and is truly an amazing anti-aging product.
Hydrator: Vichy Normaderm Promat 
Hydrating yet fast absorbing, it is a hero product for those with oily\combination skin types. It is oil free and leaves a soft matte finish.
Eye Cream: Caudalie Anti-Aging Serum Eyes and Lips
a hydrating serum that leaves my eye area tight, bright & smooth looking. This is your all in one eye product. Targets lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
SPF:  Perricone No Foundation Foundation
If your anything you like me you hate the feel of sunscreen but you know it’s necessary. This product gives you the protection you need, yet it is tinted so it makes your complexion look wonderful.  I will not leave the house without it on!
Night
Cleanser: DDF Revolve 400X Micro-polishing system and DDF Sensitive Skin Cleansing Gel
These 2 items paired together equal wonderful skin! Every evening I use these products and my skin has never felt softer and my complexion has never been brighter.
Toner: Same as A.M.
Treatment: La Roche Posay Redermic R
Great for lines, wrinkles, firming, evening out skin tone and reducing my pore size.
Hydrator: SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture
Not only does it nourish and hydrate my skin, but it provides vitamins, amino acids and essential minerals.

Morning:
Cleanser: Kinerase Gentle Daily Cleanser– This is my all time favorite cleanser. I love how gentle this product is, yet it is excellent for removing make-up. It is even good for removing my stubborn mascara.
Toner: SkinCeuticals Equalizing Toner– helps balance my skin and leaves it with a fresh soothed feel.
Treatment: SkinMedica C + E Complex– helps me get my antioxidant defense without leaving a heavy feel on my skin like some other products can.
Hydrator: Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion– Fast absorbing, mattifying, helps minimize my pores, oil free, and anti-aging in one! I absolutely love this moisturizer and apparently my boyfriend does too because out of the tons and tons of products I have, this one always seems to come up missing and I always know who to go to when I need to find it!
Eye Cream: Caudalie Vinexpert Anti-Aging Serum & Lips– a hydrating serum that leaves my eye area tight, bright & smooth looking. This is your all in one eye product. Targets lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
SPF: La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid– If there is one thing I can not stand is a heavy sunscreen that leaves you with a white face. Since I love being outdoors, this sunscreen has become my best friend.
Night:
My night regimen is the same as my morning regimen with a few exceptions: I swap out my antioxidant for a retinol treatmnet, and my moisturizer & SPF for an anti-aging, nourishing lotion that repairs sun damage!
Treatment: SkinMedica Retinol Complex– very effective, yet non irritating. I love the consistency of this product and it has definitely cleared up my skin and evened out my tone.
Hydrator: Kinerase Lotion– it’s a light moisturizer but is very hydrating. This moisturizer does not clog my pores and absorbs well. Not to mention it is anti aging, helps even out skin tone, and works very well for those with sun damaged or sensitive skin.
