One Product to Banish Fine Lines AND Breakouts
Age Clear Serum Pads from Fitglow Beauty
Fitglow Beauty is a brand that's near and dear to us as one of our first brands. We've carried this line since 2013 and have watched it grow from a small line of lip glosses and other makeup to a powerhouse brand featuring leading-edge natural skin care and skin-care-infused makeup designed for an active lifestyle.
Originally born in Ontario, they moved their operations to Florida a few years ago. But they'll always be Canadian in our hearts.
Who It's For
Age Clear Serum Pads are for those who want to both reduce the signs of aging and fight breakouts, but don't want the inconvenience of multiple products.
Why It's Special
There aren't many products out there that target the more-common-than-you-think issue of dealing with breakouts while also aiming to reduce fine lines, pigmentation, and loss of elasticity. Age Clear Serum Pads feature skin-clearing and brightening glycolic acid, plus minerals, Vitamin C, and MSM to help improve skin tone and combat the effects of sun damage.
How to Use It
Swipe over skin after cleansing and toning. You can use Age Clear Serum Pads anywhere from once a week to once daily, depending on how your skin tolerates them. Start with once weekly and build from there.
Pro tip: You get more than enough serum per pad. Reduce your cost per use by cutting each pad in half. Plus, don't forget to use any extra serum in the bottom of the jar after the pads are gone.
What to Pair It With
You want to be careful not to overdo it with exfoliating products. Check your existing routine for serums and masks that contain AHAs or BHAs - you'll typically want to use one of these OR Age Clear Serum Pads - not both.
Generally, you want to use these with a good cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. Age Clear Detox Cleanser, Sea Toning Mist, and Age Clear Lotion are designed to be used with Age Clear Serum Pads, but don't be afraid to mix and match favourites from other brands if you prefer.
