I FINALLY healed my dry winter skin! Growing up in Boston, our winters are what you can sum up as brutal and BRICK. I think after my fourth time of reapplying the same makeup to cover up my patchy skin, I realized … hmm maybe I should just start from the way from the beginning?
After months of trials and skin rashes, these were my “golden ticket” products that worked wonderful for my dry/combination skin and hope they can help you too!
Here’s what saved my skin:
+ Rinse face with water ONLY– I learned if you wash your face with any type of face wash it removes moisture which then results in irritated skin.
+ Moisturizer – Cerave daily moisturizer – After your rinse, this non-scented cream, keeps the moisture in before your morning routine.
+ Eye Cream – Youth the People Peptides + C Energy Eye Concentrate – TBH I was not a firm believer eye creams really worked – until my under eyes couldn’t hold a drop of concealer
+ Tinted SPF – Super Goop Glow Screen – In trying to get better in the habit of applying SPF daily, I fell in love with the glowy finish of this sunscreen
+ Daily makeup routine. As much as I love my skin. My concealer and blush is here to stay honey.
+ Face wash – Cerave gentle foaming cleanser – Such a gentle cleanser for easily irritated skin
+ Makeup wipe – Kirkland brand – as a proud COSTCO member, these wipes get the job done. Potential dupe for the Neutrogena ones?
+ Micellar Water – The makeup wipe is for the first layer, and this micellar water helps clean any excess makeup stuck in your pores
+ Rich Moisturizer – Embryolisse cream – If there is anything on this list that feel so thick and luxurious on your dry skin – its this! An oldie but suuuuuch a goodie.
