Regarding my skin looking better, I'm thinking it's a factor of several things:
- Regular exfoliation
- Use of products containing retinol and/or peptides
- Yoga: I recently developed the painful tight hip muscle condition known as Piriformis syndrome, which has forced me back into my yoga practice. I enjoy yoga, but now it's become a necessity. All those twisty moves are good for your inner organs as well as your muscles, so maybe that's contributing.
- Use of skin serums. I slathered on Complexion Conserve Remedy Reserve Serum Saturday afternoon, and it was Sunday when I was like "boy, my skin look good". Ingredients: castor oil*, carrot seed oil*, rose otto, soy oil*, vitamin e (* indicates certified organic ingredient).
