So I’m back for the last time and this blog is the most important one. Why? Because this will show if the products I have been using have improved my skin…

I booked myself in for a final skin scan with the lovely Lauren and I took the first skin scan results back in May to compare.

My results

As shown at my first skin scan my skin was at a reasonable level, but my sun damage had room to improve.

For the past 4 months, I have been using the products suggested at the initial skin scan and below are the results…

Fact and figures

  Before (May 2017) After (Sept 2017)
Wrinkles 12.734% 10.521% (↓ 2.213%)
Pigmentation 11.765% 7.800% (↓ 3.965%)
Redness 0.000% 1.333% (+ 1.333%)
Inflammation 0.000% 0.000% (no change)
Pores 3.775% 5.140 (+ 1.365%)

Pigmentation

Overall I have reduced my pigmentation which was caused by previous sun damage AFTER-PIGMENTATIONby a fantastic 3.965% which I am very happy about. This was the one area I was really interested in finding out as you can’t tell from just looking at your skin.

The Essential C Daily Renewal Complex at £86 may be quite expensive but to have reduced my skin damage by this much in a short amount of time, it’s worth investing in.  

Wrinkles 

AFTER-WRINKLESMy wrinkles have reduced by 2.213% which again is great news. I had noticed my eye area becoming a lot smoother and brighter which is always a bonus at 28! Going forwards Lauren suggested I focus my eye face cream application on a larger area around my eyes and my lip area.

Pores

AFTER-PORESInterestingly my pore count has increased by 1.365% but Lauren assured me this number is relatively low so it isn’t something to worry about. However, to help with reducing pores Lauren recommended the new Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel Mask which will give my face a deep clean and help to remove stubborn dirt in my pores.

Redness 

AFTER-REDNESSDue to one broken capillary, my redness has unfortunately increased by 1.333%. Whilst this isn’t noticeable I will be sampling the new Murad redness therapy range to see if it helps to reduce my redness.

What I’ve noticed …

I definitely feel like my skin is a lot softer than before. When I am not wearing makeup I have noticed how brighter and toned my complexion has become. Overall I am really pleased with the results. I will definitely keep using these products and maybe invest in the new Hydro-Glow Face Mask.

My top three products are the Instant Radiance Eye Cream, Essential C Renewal Complex and Essential C Day Moisturiser. If you want to find out more about your skin health or are just looking for a new skincare regime I would absolutely recommend a skin scan, especially if you are worried about any sun damage you may have.
