But then my mom said something. And my friends, on Houseparty, chimed in as I picked up the call: "Your skin looks so good." My sister, a former manager of Sephora, also commented. My skin, it seems, had picked one of the dimmest times to turn up the lights. I actually was bright and glowy. But what had changed? Not much. Not much at all. Except this: Rael's Good Chemistry Advanced Antioxidant Serum ($38).
I'm solidly in my 30s, and my skin has always toggled between being basically fine and holy-shit-that's-a-lot-of-pimples (thanks, hormones), without much of an in between. So, it actually makes a lot of sense that the serum that changed my life is from a brand that focuses on period care. Rael launched in 2017, but recently expanded this February to include skin-care products. The Good Chemistry Advanced Antioxidant Serum is super lightweight and has a pleasant-but-not-at-all-overwhelming fragrance. Most importantly, it packs a punch: it combines fullerene, a carbon compound that is 172 times stronger than vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid to improve skin's texture and hydration, with green tea leaf extract to soothe skin. I've tried a lot of serums in my life, and this one has become my no-going-back pick.
Sincerely and honestly, it's made one thing infinitely better in this crazy time. And while you may be overwhelmed and/or rethinking your skin-care routine altogether (there is no better time), I can't say enough good things about Good Chemistry. Now, do yourself a favor and nab it, then learn how to turn off your Zoom self-reflection, because even with perfect skin, you deserve a break from gawking at yourself. You're welcome.
