I have been having fun exploring a variety of skin-care products. This week on #BeautyMinute, I will be sharing some of beauty’s most prominent couples. Skincare products that work together.
It has been both wonderful and painful. I have experienced breakouts, dehydrated skin, and burns around my mouth. But I have also experienced beautiful glowing and clear skin. I enjoy experimenting with skincare products and I am committed to getting my skin to the most perfectly imperfect state.
I saw a new dermatologist this week. And I will start a new skincare regimen on Friday when my prescriptions are delivered. I am keeping a skincare journal to document what is or is not working on this journey.
Skincare coupling makes my routine simple. I know what works and I am no longer searching for the perfect product. I know what can be accomplished when I pair certain products. It takes the guesswork out of my skincare routine.
Here are the best Skincare couples I have discovered. And how they helped my skin.

As always, I share with you my experiences. I am not a dermatologist or a professional in skin care. I am simply sharing what has or has not worked for my skin. However, you must do your research and spot test before trying anything on your skin, face, or hair.
Comment below: Have you tried any of these skincare couples? Or do you have any recommendations for us?
