SKINCARE UPDATE: MURAD

Murad skincare

I've been troubled with acne since high school, and I've tried everything from Proactiv to Noxema.  While my skin has gotten better over the years, I still get breakouts ever so often usually around that time of the month.  I've recently partnered with Murad to be one of their Ambassadors and I'm really excited to share with you some of the products that I have been using!  This set of products are from their acne products line which include the skin smoothing polish, transforming powder (dual-action cleanser & exfoliator), clarifying mask, and acne cleaning solution.  

My daily routine usually looks like this: a gentle cleanser with my Clarisonic in the morning, an undereye cream, and moisturizer.  At night I will use the same cleanser without the Clarisonic, and exfoliate (2-3x a week!) with the Skin Smoothing Polish.  If I have a pesky zit I'll use the Acne Clearing Solution over the area and finally massage in the Rapid Age Spot Pigment Lightening Serum over dark spots.   I've been using the serum for about 2 weeks and have already noticed a difference.  I usually only use the transforming powder cleanser only if I'm experiencing a bad breakout!  I've actually noticed a significant difference by following this regimen, and my skin seems clearer and brighter so I would definitely give these products a thumbs up!  Have you added any products to your beauty routine this season?
