Here we are with June’s ‘skincare snapshot’.
A reader recently asked me about neck care. Like Caroline Hirons says, “Take it to the tits. Your face doesn’t end at your chin in skincare.” I think that’s very sound advice. For me though, the only two products that get regularly applied to my neck would be a very simply formulated moisturiser and sunscreen. The skin on my neck is very prone to allergic reactions — reaction sometimes appears in seconds and often lasts for weeks — so my skincare does end at my chin!
Junpaku Senka White Beauty Serum: I use this creamy serum as a moisturiser.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Shaka Fluid: I have to be truthful and say that this product managed to slip through the net because it was the only sunscreen I had on the table. I included it without giving a second thought and I didn’t want to retake the picture. There are definitely far more pleasant sunscreens on the market, but for in the UK or Europe, Shaka Fluid isn’t the worst option.
Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster (on nights I’m not using Azclear & Retin-A)
Azclear Action 20% Azelaic Acid Medicated Lotion (every other night): The tube slipped behind a bottle in the picture, but you can find it if you look hard enough.
Retin-A 0.025% Gel (every other night after Azclear): I apply this after the Azclear since it pills if I do the reverse.
