Winter skin got you down? My skin is currently driving me bonkers. It's breaking out, it's dry, it's flaky, it's oily. It's basically being a hot mess, no doubt thanks to the constantly changing weather.
One thing I find that helps my skin is a serious overnight retinol treatment. It's like a mini-facial that works while you sleep. Retinol is one of the hardest working products to reduce sun damage, fine lines and improve skin clarity. Philosophy has created their Miracle Worker line to, well, perform miracles. And while that is a strong word to use, I have no doubt that if you use the Miracle Worker Retinoid Pads, you will see a difference in your skin.
What makes Philosophy's Miracle Worker Retinoid Treatment Pads different is the way they interact with your skin. Some retinol products can can make your skin red and irritable while you are using them. Philosophy has found a way to make it a comfortable and beneficial treatment for all skin types to use every day, or every other day. with minimal redness or peeling. I experienced neither, but I am what you might call "experienced" when it comes to retinols and using strong ingredients. If you start slow by using the product every other night, you shouldn't have any issues.
What impresses me most is simple. It's no secret that product efficacy goes down the second air touches the precious ingredients. These pads arrive untreated. You actually pour the retinoid treatment serum into the container with the pads when you are ready to begin using the product. This means the product is fresh and untouched, ready for use when you are.
I've been using it for about two months and have seen a dramatic difference in the clarity of my skin. We all know my melasma defies reason, so I don't expect anything short of super lasers to really make a difference there. If you are looking for radiant skin and a reduction in fine lines, this is worth considering!
