Life would be so much easier if we could take the road to instant gratification. Nap when we’re tired, eat when we’re hungry, and buy the dress the moment we see it. Everything takes time, and good skin is no exception. My own personal journey to good skin (will it ever be good enough?) has been paved with a lot of late nights, cleansing wipes, and clogged pores. It’s not that I’m lazy per say, but that other things, like the reality of how tired I am, overwhelms me into submission.
Not only does the skincare I use need to provide hydration and “anti-aging” capabilities, but it also needs to address the uneven texture, blackheads, and enlarged pores I’ve gained from falling asleep too often with my makeup still in tact. It’s my dirty, dirty shame. Philosophy’s latest launch, No Reason To Hide, aims to help women like me who are concerned about uneven skin tone and texture, redness, blotchiness, pore size, and acne marks. The No Reason To Hide Serum ($68) is the ingredient powerhouse, packed with salicylic acid, vitamin c, niacinamide (a concentrated form of vitamin b) and marine extracts. The serum is designed to be used twice a day, while a “maintenance dose” is provided by the Instant Skin-Tone Perfecting Moisturizer ($45). The sheer tint and broad spectrum SPF 20 protection make it a great daytime companion that you can wear alone or under makeup.
