Anti-Aging for Sensitive Skin

avatar
Carla_Health_Beauty_Chat
Now most people think of anti aging and grab products with a high amount of active ingredients in them to ensure they're getting the maximum amount of benefits The reality is that too many actives normally result in a damaged skin barrier that can only cause your skin to look further aged and fragile. For this reason, it's important to give actives a break and focus on soothing and gentle ingredients that will help sensitive skin looking youthful and fresh. Here are 2 examples of exceptional products that are perfect for gentle anti aging. PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum
I am fully satisfied with how nourished and hydrated my skin feels after putting this on. Some of the key ingredients include chia and flaxseed oils for those rich Omega fatty acids, which do wonders for your skin. This is also followed by olive oil and a bunch of ceramides. Perfect for a compromised barrier or overall sensitivity FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream
Also very impressed with this product. The perfect nighttime emollient cream to leave your skin feeling buttery soft and plump the next day. The formula contains shea butter, oatmeal, jojoba esters and peptides for the perfect overnight repair. I would 100% recommend these for people with sensitive skin, dry skin, or damaged skin. I will certainly be repurchasing these as well.

Let me know if you love them as much as I did!

Price Doesn’t Matter (Except That It Does)
Pause: price doesn’t matter in that it doesn’t innately affect the quality of the product. I used a (thankfully gifted) $160+ cult favourite serum and was comically underwhelmed with how horrible it smelled, how unpleasant the texture was, and how irritated my skin was despite the fact that I had used vitamin c serums just as strong previously. And then I look at a community-renowned $8 niacinamide serum that is, by all accounts, a decent serum... that my skin hated and I detested due to the tacky texture. I’ve used, and loved, skincare that ranges in price from $6-$300+, some gifted and some purchased with my own money. I’ve opted for lovely $15 moisturizers when I couldn’t afford my $60 favourites. I’ve paid extra for specific ingredients that are a bit more pricy. What I’ve Learned? Price means little to how my skin will like it. But price still matters. If your budget for skincare is small, your options similarly size down. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t good skincare in your budget. Of course, opt for prescription if you can afford it- 1% retinol from the most expensive brand can’t compare to a basic 0.0125% tretinoin prescription cream. Look at your skin, do a bit of research, and see where in your routine that you can splurge a bit, or where you can go strictly utilitarian. If you have access to CVS, they have 40% off coupons regularly and CeraVe is bangin’. If you’re international, check out the go-to The Ordinary who ships internationally, or go through CultBeauty to get ahold of similarly affordable brands like Versed and The Inkey List 💰 In the end, price really only matters in that it affects what brands you opt for and how large your routine is. You don’t need $110 moisturizers or $120 exfoliants, though they often offer better textures and more well-rounded formulas. Just cleanse, moisturize, and slap on some sunscreen, and you’ve got your bases covered 💕

I don’t know about you, but as the weather gets colder my skin gets more and more dry and needs so much hydration! . One of my favorite nighttime moisturizer’s that suits my skin soo well has got to be the @firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Night Cream. This night cream is a rich, buttery-like formula that instantly hydrates my skin. . Made with ingredients aimed that repairing the skin and reversing the signs of aging, this moisturizer is perfect for everyday use! . 🔹Collodial oatmeal and sodium hyaluronate help soothe and hydrate the skin, relieving dry skin 🔹Pepides help boost collagen production 🔹Glutaline-In-Tense and niacinamide improves firmness and elasticity . . While I did not start using this moisturizer for the anti-aging benefits, rather only for the hydration, I like that it targets both issues. I haven’t used it long enough to see much of a difference in my fine lines, but like I’ve mentioned, it has substantially increased the hydration of my skin and I know I’ll continue using it! . . . #watershot #firstaidbeauty #ultrarepaircream #sephoraFIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream

NEW FAB FAVS
THIS POST WILL BE ADDED TO MY SKINSTA @myglowyskindiary SOON Hey guys! You probably didn’t know that FAB is my all time favorite brand and I own the most products from them. I’ve received some PR packages from there so I also got a good amount of product from that and it’s a great way to try new products! ___________________________________________________ FAB ULTRA REPAIR WILD OAT TONER Absolutely love this product! Works for all skin types, and is one of the only toners I’ve tried that doesn’t burn my sensitive skin. It’s easy to dispense and is a good price for amount of product. FAB ULTRA REPAIR HYDRA-FIRM SLEEPING CREAM This one is nice and thick, but absorbs quickly and nicely. This is a product I only use at night, and I don’t use it everyday. I usually replace it as a moisturizer. One of the more underrated FAB products and I definitely recommend. This really helps to make my skin feel more firm. FAB ULTRA REPAIR TINT CREAM I really like this product, my only problem is that it’s quite small. I do really appreciate the fact that they have lots of shades. I find that most skincare brands don’t include many shades when making tinted products. The shade I have in the photo is SABLE but I also have LIGHT and IVORY. I love that these creams also have an SPF of 30, making them great for casual days. Makeup also sits really nicely on it.

Cosrx Snail 92 ✨My second time buying!✨
I started using this product quite a while ago. When I first tried it I was dealing with very oily skin with random dry patches. This product is very light, and leave a non-greasy feel. My skin feels super HYDRATED and BOUNCY. OUUFF I loved it. Then of course, I got sidetracked and wanted to tRy NEw PrOdUcTs...foolish girl. Anyways I have found my way back to my love with new knowledge of my combo skin and I’ll never go back I swear. A little goes such a long way, and it has enough slip to allow for a little face massage hehe. Now like I said, it’s light. So whenever I get a little dryness, I use my COVER FX - Custom Infusion Drops Overall I would recommend this for people with normal to combo skin! COSRX - Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

I didn’t know I’d be this obsessed 😍
I didn’t know I’d be this obsessed 😍
I am utterly HEART EYES over this exfoliating serum! I have sensitive skin and am often hesitant on trying exfoliants. This was my first introduction to a chemical exfoliant and to say I’m obsessed is a down play. I started off using this product once a week and now I have a schedule of using it every weds+fri. There’s a slight tingle upon application and it lasts about 30secs at max. After application I go ahead and apply my Versed moisturizer. In the morning I feel plump, dewy, and fresh! VERSED - SKIN SOAK Rich Moisture Cream After about a month of use this product has helped the overall texture of my skin and I see a major difference in skin tone. I will definitely be repurchasing and highly recommend this product for my sensitive skin friends 💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum

I wanted to share some thought
I wanted to share some thoughts on some products that I’ve REALLY been loving from two of my favorite brands, drjart & paulaschoice! 🥰 ____ the amazing team at DrJart revamped their Cicapair line which encompasses the power of Tiger Grass (or Centella Asiatica) that calms sensitive skin, reduces redness, and soothes irritation! I’m a huge fan of the cream, as well as the gel formulation! The Calming Mist is so fine, and delivers an instant soothing sensation that I love to use as a toner after cleansing. The Tiger Grass Serum is formulated with their proprietary micro biome complex , Jartbiome, which soothes and repairs damaged skin while strengthening its’ defenses against stressors. What I love the most about this serum is seriously the packaging… The pump works flawlessly, delivering the perfect amount of product as you twist it open and refilling as you twist it to close! I HIGHLY recommend this line, and I know I will be using it even more when the colder, harsh weather approaches. ❄️ ____ I’ve also been obsessed with the DEFENSE line by PaulasChoice and have already professed my love for the Antioxidant Pore Purifier! This is my second tube so the hype is REAL, and I’ll always be repurchasing this gem thanks to its’ powerful blend of antioxidants, salicylic acid, and more! The Triple Algae Pollution Shield which strengthens and repairs the skin’s barrier with powerful plant and vitamin derived antioxidants to defend from aging and environmental aggressors! I use this product only in the mornings, and after the Pore Purifier, and follow it up with my moisturizer & then SPF! For people who life in heavily polluted cities like Houston.. This is perfect for you! I very highly recommend this line! 🙌🏽

Meebak Cica (short for centell
Meebak Cica (short for centella asiatica). I was super intrigued! What is it: a leafy grass that helps heal redness, irritation, acne, and other stressed out skin ailments. My Verdict? Really enjoyed this duo! The serum($20) is a little thicker than your traditional serum. It absorbs quickly, and doesn't leave any sticky residue in its wake. As you can see, my serum is getting used up.. and for good reason! I started using it every morning for a few weeks, and really loved how my skin looked fuller and less red. The Moisturizer ($15) is pretty good too. It's lightweight, almost a gel texture (but it's a cream). It absorbs quickly also, and doesn't have any real discernible scent. It didn't cause any breakouts, and really moisturized my skin. I found it comparable to other more expensive moisturizers.

Trying out Korean skincare! 💫
Trying out Korean skincare! 💫
Lately I’ve been reading so many blogs and watching heaps of YouTube videos on Korean skincare and its safe to say I’m obsessed! Its a whole new world compared to “Western Skincare” - so many other new ingredients and solutions and I became overwhelmed with choices very quickly. 🤯 Thankfully, one of my good friends gave me a few samples to try! The brand “I’m from” is one that I was so eager to try as I’ve read amazing things - so please if anyone else has any recommendations from their line - let me know! 🤩 I'm from - Ginseng Serum Firstly, I am in love with the smell of this serum! It gives off this caramelised honey scent that smells like you could eat it! 😍 Ginseng serum is aimed to increase collagen and regenerate and restore the skins natural barrier. Because I’m an avid retinol user, I often look for serums that are about strengthening the skin. For me I love the initial use of this product. It absorbs really quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky or oily residue. After applying at night, I woke up to no irritation or breakouts and my skim did feel slightly less dry. Since serums do need a few weeks to see a noticeable difference - I’ve had to mark a star down due to not knowing the full effectiveness. But from first impressions I will definitely be purchasing a full size product and hopefully after a few weeks of usage I can give it that last star! 👍🏽 PURITO - Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack This stuff is serious business! My skin wanders between normal and dry, however when my skin does get dry, I’m always searching for a quick fix skin-drink to get my face back in order. And, here is it! This sleeping leave on mask contains Ceramide, Squalene, and Hyaluronic Acid. It’s super nourishing and moisturising and is a life changer for us dry skin girls! It’s definitely not a daily moisturiser however I would recommend it as an overnight mask 2-3 times a week. 👍🏽 I'm from - Vitamin Tree Water Gel I tried not to let my bias for cream moisturisers cloud my judgement and I really wanted to like this one because of all the amazing reviews, but unfortunately it wasn’t for me! I will say that the product does advertise as best suited for oily skin types which I am not - so I started off not doing myself any favours 😅 I liked that there was no off putting fragrance, however you can definitely smell a silicone vibe. I did feel that nice cooling sensation which I liked and I personally didn’t have any irritation to the product at all, but that’s where my positives stop unfortunately! The product took more than 20 minutes to absorb and even then it wasn’t absorbed completely as I was still left with a sticky residue - I’m unsure how this would sit under make up. 😞 Overall I wouldn’t purchase a full size however for oily skin peeps this may be a completely different outcome ☺️
