Whether your skin freaks out along with your moods every month when PMS attacks, or, you’re going through “the change” and in addition to those fun hot flashes your skin breaks out in redness, blemishes and bumps — changes in hormones are to blame. In my case (as you know if you’re a regular Beauty Binger) I’m 5 months pregnant so my skin has fluctuated from desert dry to blackhead bonanza in the past few months– who said pregnancy wasn’t fun? I FINALLY found a serum to calm my bitchy skin and regulate its dramatic mood swings — Eminence Organics Eight Green Youth Serum ($42).
This ultra-gentle serum helped my skin retain moisture at its driest times (prior to using the serum, my skin was literally sucking up skin oils and thick creams within a matter of seconds) and made my skin less greasy during oily times, shrinking those ghastly blackheads that have taken up permanent residence on my nose. I use it twice a day right after my toner before my thicker serums and creams (don’t forget: you should always apply your skincare products thinnest to thickest to ensure maximum absorption).
Product Info from Eminence:

Concentrated whole plant yucca extract, vitex angus castus, algae and flaxseed absorb deep into the dermis to tighten and brighten problem areas, and plump loss of skin tone.
