Such was the case with my pretty little face this winter - I've had combination skin for years and don't even really think about it anymore, I just automatically use products for that skin type - that is until a visit to The Plastic Surgery Clinic in Toronto for a Miracle 10 Peel where not only did I end up with glowing, soft and smooth skin but also was informed that at this time my skin isn't combination at all but rather delicate and dry! It might go back to being combination come summer but for now, it means I've been using all the wrong products - ones that are actually too strong and not moisturizing enough which was compounding the problem. After just a couple of weeks of using the Miracle 10 delicate/dry products - my skin feels balanced and supple and no longer feels tight after washing or looks flaky later in the day.
The products can be purchased separately but if you're having to buy everything from scratch, a better deal is the:
Introductory Kit Delicate/Dry - $239 - contains: Cleanser, Toner, AHA Cream, Repairing Night Moisturizer, Light Serum and Anti-Aging Eye Cream
If you are always on the go or just want to try the products out with less commitment, there is also a travel sized kit for $169
Kits are also available for Normal/Maturing and Acne-Prone/Oily skin types - if you're in Toronto or Mississauga take a trip to the Plastic Surgery Clinic/Miracle 10 Boutique where they will be happy to access your skin to make sure you are using the right products for your skin type - or will even tell you what your skin type is if you aren't sure!
And as much as I like the kit, my favourite products from Miracle 10 are suitable for everyone no matter what skin type you are so it would be wrong of me not to share the wonders of the - Fruit Enzyme Scrub - 50ml - $77 - a gentle yet effective exfoliant with thermostable exotic fruit enzymes and porous fossilized rock particles that scrub away impurities and Nourishing Clay Mask - 50ml - $65 - contains collagen, elastin, vitamins A, E, C, D3, K and B complex with a neutral pH making it great for all skin types. It cools, it hydrates, it nourishes and then wakes your skin up while refining and pores and helping to diminish redness.
Use them one right after the other twice a week and you won't believe how soft and radiant your skin will look!
