Have Sensitive Skin But Still Want to Exfoliate? Drunk Elephant's New Serum Is For You
I have very sensitive skin, so any time I try a new skin-care product, I'm cautiously optimistic, but prepared for the worst. In recent months, I've been working hard to repair my moisture barrier, and combat redness in my skin. I took a break from any acids or harsh exfoliants because it felt like everything I tried was making my skin sting and burn, which isn't a good feeling, and definitely doesn't mean your products are working. But, like anyone who wants to achieve glowing, healthy, gorgeous skin, I was eager to start adding some chemical exfoliation back into my regular routine.
I started using the Drunk Elephant Protini Powerpeptide Resurfacing Serum ($82), and immediately I noticed . . . nothing. No burning, no redness, no irritation, just glowing skin the next morning. I started small, using it once a week, and I'm now up to two or three times per week. I like to use it at night, and I've been really blown away by how well my skin has handled the product. The combination of 10% lactic acid and 11 different peptides works to both exfoliate and nourish the skin, making it look bouncy and beautiful. If you've got sensitive skin but want to try a little exfoliation, this is the product for you.
