How I'm Going to #ChangeMySkin with Kiehl's

1:10:00 PM

I've never been much of a maven when it comes to skincare  I think it's got to do with the fact that I've never really experienced bad skin in my 23 years of life; no puberty-induced acne (praise the universe!) and no adulting or stressed-induced breakouts either. Honestly, the only "breakouts" I've had in the past two years are probably one or two recurring pimples here and there, but I've never had a skin issue so serious it required expert advice or a strict, prescribed skin regimen. So yes, I've been quite lucky in that area however one skin concern that's become quite prominent for me in the last five years is pigmentation  an issue that annoyingly runs in my family and one I can't seem to kick.

It's common knowledge that the sun plays a huge role in signs of pigmentation, which is why we're often told to apply a high protection sunscreen daily, as this assists in preventing further damage. But I have a makeup routine that consists of probably 20 individual products and sometimes I honestly forget about this step. Which is why I've become a junkie for SPF-infused makeup products, as I've convinced myself that these will make up for the days I forget to apply sun cream  but truthfully, they never do. And now overtime the dark spots on the sides of my face have worsened and I'm completely to blame for this.

Last month Kiehl's South Africa got in touch with me about participating in their #ChangeMySkin campaign, which will take place over the course of four weeks from 18 July to 19 August. The criteria? I maintain a consistent daily skincare routine using a few of their cult products in aim to combat my issues with pigmentation and to help banish my dark circles fast. 

With this campaign I'll not only get an opportunity to transform my skin, but I'll also be able to give you all full access to my Kiehl's journey. Once a week I'll upload a review on the products, providing insight on any changes my skin has experienced along the way. For those who know of Kiehl's but have been indecisive on whether to try the brand, the #ChangeMySkin campaign will provide skincare fanatics with a thorough overview of Kiehl's cult buys and hopefully by the end of it, give you all clarity on their products' capabilities. 

The still above features Kiehl's High 5 Range, which I'll be using to treat my skin for the next few weeks:
