Skin care with Lorenzo

Ever since I turned 16, pimples and an oily dermis have been my worst enemies. I’ve tried countless products over the years, but only a few have truly achieved what they promised to do: clear up my complexion without causing any dryness or damage. In today’s edition, we will focus on one of the pillars of skin care: exfoliation.

Summer has just ended, but many of us still suffer the repercussions of that dreaded season: Occasional breakouts and irritated skin. Dermatologists suggest that exfoliating once a week is highly recommended. However, if you notice breakouts in your T-zone (the area that comprises your forehead and nose), it is recommended you exfoliate every day. Listening to your skin is always a priority, so if you notice your dermis getting drier and drier, perhaps strive to exfoliate every two days. The ideal exfoliator? Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel. Not only does it just need to be left on for a quick 5 minutes, it also visibly sweeps away dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling fresh and, most importantly, clean. The product is easy to use, affordable and catered to sensitive skin. Try it to believe it.

Four out of five stars.
