Over-The-Counter Power: Avène Rétrinal + 0.1 Cream

◉◉◉

Recommended by dermatologists, Avène Rétrinal + 0.1 Cream is currently one of the most innovative skincare products on the market.

Available in three different strengths including 0.1% retrinal (French for retinol) which is currently the highest amount of retrinal available in an over-the-counter product. The lowest strength is 0.025%, which is where someone who has never used a retrinal product should begin. Classified as dermo-cosmetics, Avène Rétrinal Skin Care products are considered to be cutting edge skincare with a medical approach to skincare.

Avène Rétrinal + 0.1 Cream is quite effective for a couple of reasons. The product is a form of Vitamin A which through clinical studies has been proven to improve elasticity, radiance and skin texture – as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. You will get the normal side effects with any retrinal/retinol product – skin sensitivity, peeling, dry skin. But it is all well-worth the end result. Clear, glowing, firm skin.

The easy to apply product should be applied to the face and neck after cleansing. As with all anti-aging products it is imperative that broad-spectrum sunscreen be used at all times when exposed to the sun.

I have used many retinol/retrinal products, over-the-counter and prescription – this is by far the best over-the-counter product I have used.

Struck Oil: Moraccanoil

✯✯✯

MOROCCANOIL

Moroccanoil is an oil treatment for the hair, derived from natural Argan Oil. This brand’s unique formula promises to fortify the hair, improve elasticity and protect against free-radicals.

Moroccanoil instantly absorbs into the hair creating instant shine without leaving an oily residue. It intensely hydrates and conditions the hair leaving it silky and smooth. It speeds up drying time and puts an end to frizzy, unmanagable hair.

Although there are other Argan-based brands that claim to do the same, Moroccanoil is truly one-of-a kind. It smells delicious, like an exotic vacation and never leaves hair greasy or sticky.

Tip: Apply Moroccanoil to damp hair at night, twist into a bun and pin to the top of head. In the morning hair will be soft, wavy and completely frizz-free.
