I don’t know about you, but the stresses of the past year have wreaked havoc on my skin. It feels like I have been in a never ending battle with breakouts, redness and dehydration.
To help get this skin situation sorted I decided to try something totally new. A skincare line created by celebrity dermatologist Dr. Zenovia which was developed specifically to address the visible signs of hormonal imbalances in the skin.
Hormonal imbalances can happen at any point in life. In fact women can experience hormonal fluctuations throughout SIX stages of life: puberty, pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause, menopause and post menopause.
“Studies show that 80-percent of women are suffering from issues due to hormonal imbalances happening within the body,” says Dr. Zenovia. “The skin, being our largest organ on the body, is the first place to reveal these imbalances occurring within.”
With medical-grade active ingredients, Dr. Zenovia helps to bring hormone-impacted skin back into balance. Her products contain NO phthalates, parabens, mineral oil, artificial colors and other questionable ingredients plus they are cruelty free and all of their packaging is made with recycled products.
I have been using Dr. Zenovia’s Essentials Collection which is focused on correcting dehydration, loss of elasticity and uneven tone. After a few weeks of using the line my skin is finally looking like itself again! No more flaky patches, redness or weird acne like spots! I’m back baby!
There is also a Clear Complexion Collection that tackles all kinds of acne.
Whether you adopt the full Essentials or Clear Completion Routine or simply add a few of its high-tech anti-aging products into your existing regimen, you’ll be working against the clock to ensure that signs of hormone imbalances don’t show up on your skin.
Here is a breakdown of the products I have been using:
Bakuchoi Hydrating Cleanser is formulated with bakuchiol (also known as “nature’s retinol”), REG-ulate360 complex, powerful blend of antioxidants Green Tea & botanicals. This cleanser is soap-free, clinical grade and pH balanced and suitable for any skin types, even the most sensitive.
Retinol Recovery Eye Cream is one of Dr. Zenovia’s must-haves to address signs signs of hormonally imbalanced skin around the delicate eye area. She describes it as a “powerful, yet gentle” formula that helps address loose skin around the eye area and dark circles.
Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer is a deep moisturizing cream that helps enhance skins tone & radiance while helping firm, plump and strengthen skins barrier to boost elasticity. It contains a unique combination of bio-equivalent ceramides, humectants & emollients to retain and distribute moisture. This is a great night cream and is fabulous for dry winter skin.
For evening Inflam-Aging Night Repair Treatment helps reduce inflammation and brighten the overall complexion. The treatment contains active ingredients green tea, caffeine, and medical-grade resveratrol, which Dr. Zenovia describes as “a robust antioxidative combination helps repair the tissue and helps heal the inflammatory process associated with aging skin.” It’s especially powerful for sensitive skin types, including ongoing skin conditions like rosacea (like mine). In the morning, you wake up with firmer-feeling, plumper-looking, even-toned skin.
