This is coming straight off the reader request line!
I don’t know how it seems on the blog, but I have pretty troublesome skin.
My skin is prone to breakouts, gets oily and has random dry patches that get all red and scaly. Not attractive. To battle this little “issue”, I try to use really good skincare products and also wear makeup on a regular basis. I know some people say “the best makeup women can wear is a smile”, which can be true….but I also love my blush, foundation and under-eye concealer. Who are we kidding here?
Every morning and night, I wash my face with Philosophy Purity face wash. I started using it not too long ago and love it. It even takes off my mascara and eye liner without bothering my eyes!! Genius. After washing my face, I use Philosophy clear day retinol clarifying lotion. It’s hard core without being drying and really works to keep me breakout free and reduce redness and scars from previous breakouts. It’s expensive ($40 for this little tube) but worth it!
Contrary to what the jar says, I don’t use that Neutrogena night cream at night. I use it on those previously mentioned dry scaly red areas that pop up every so often. I just dab a little here and there…wherever my skin feels the driest. I like this one because it’s not oily at all and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
I also just started using that Olay regenerist eye lifting serum every morning and every night. I figured it’s never to early to start using anti-aging eye creme!
