My skin is crazy. I’m not entirely sure when it happened but sometime after I turned 30 it just decided it was going to change completely. I guess that comes with age but I hadn’t really thought that it was going to change in every way shape and form basically overnight. I have had to do some due diligence trying to keep up with the changes in my skin and get everything back on track. I went from having combination skin, to being as dry as the Sahara Desert. A new routine, with products targeting dry skin, was a must.

I’ve been using a new line of products, available at Rite Aid, called Receutics. Receutics Active Skin Repair is a dermatologist-strength skincare solution that goes straight to your skin cells, giving them a high concentration of the nutrients they need most. Available without a prescription exclusively at Rite Aid stores and online, Receutics heals skin from the inside out. They’re all about correcting your imperfections instead of covering them up. Which is really what I want out of my skincare. I do love to wear makeup, but I’d rather not have to take 15 extra steps to keep it from caking up on me.
All of the products that I’m using are in the Therapeutic category. Three different products, working together to build me a routine that will really work for my skin. The Receutics Active Skin Repair Therapeutic Intense Hydration & Repair Treatment is a clinically-proven skin repair treatment. It prevents irritated, itchy, red, dry skin at a cellular level. This seemed like the perfect match for me. It balances professional-grade ingredients with natural nutrients and antioxidants to help soothe and strengthen even the most dry, itchy skin. I was impressed with this, it’s super gentle, completely lightweight and was really leaving my skin looking more hydrated, brighter, and less red.
The gentle hydrating cleanser is a great addition to my routine. A lot of cleansers work against me and dry my skin out more. Which really isn’t what I’m looking for at this stage in the game.
The Receutics Active Skin Repair Gentle Hydrating Cleanser was awesome. It left my skin feeling hydrated and not so tight when I was done cleansing my face.
My favorite out of the line is the Receutics Active Skin Repair Hydration & Repair Treatment. It instantly soothed my dry skin after just a few uses. Using this combination of products daily has really helped my skin see new levels of hydration and brightness.
I wanted to share the before and afters with and without makeup, because for me, I can see a huge difference in the full faced makeup photos. And yes, my hair changes a lot in two months time. The brunette photos are before and the platinum photos are after. If you look at my makeup in the brunette photos you can tell how it cakes up around my nose and on my cheeks and under my eyes because of how dry I am. It was a constant problem. After using these products, I’m really starting to see the difference in my skin. My makeup isn’t caking. My skin is less red and less dry.
