SkinMedica AHA/BHA cream: Exfoliates and improves appearance of skin tone, texture and overall helps brighten skin. I apply this weekly to face, neck and chest.
SkinMedica Rejuvenative Moisturizer: When I need more moisture, typically winter months, I add this product. This nourishing facial moisturizer is for dry or normal skin types. This hydrates, smooths, softens allowing lines and wrinkles to be minimized.
