LIFE CHANGING DRY SENSITIVE Skincare routine
I have been on the hunt to find the perfect skincare routine for my dry-sensitive rosacea prone skin. It’s taken me a while to get here, but currently this has been my routine for the last 6 months and my skin is the BEST it’s ever looked. Routine: CAUDALIE - Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil I pretty much wear makeup daily, so I always do a double cleanse. This cleansing oil is gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but still breaks down makeup very effectively. It has grape seed oil which is a great anti-oxidant and almond oil which has been used to treat dry skin and improves complexion Neutrogena - Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover If I’m wearing waterproof mascara, I usually go in after the oil with this makeup remover. It’s the best one I’ve tried that breaks down my eye makeup so I’m not tugging at my skin. Just hold it to your eye for a few seconds. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser I ran out of my normal cleanser (FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser ) so I decided to try this in the meantime. It has actually worked very well! It doesn’t strip my skin, I don’t feel any tightness and it does a great job of cleansing. I do feel like there is still moisture in my face after using it. It has glycerin and hyaluronic acid which are powerful humectants to draw moisture in. It does have frangrance which can be irritating, however it has not effected my sensitive skin. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner Toner is one of those things that you really don’t NEED in skincare. It’s not going to make or break your routine, but because I’m dry, I use it to add more moisture into my skin. This toner has hyaluronic acid to again, draw moisture into the skin, as well as rose water which soothes sensitive skin. The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA Lactic acid is one of the only AHAs I can use as I have sensitive skin. All other chemical exfoliants are too harsh for me and cause redness and breakouts. However this lactic acid is incredible. I use 5 drops2-3 times a week, and wake up with clear, bright skin. It is truly a game changer! And the price can not be beat. BIODERMA - Atoderm Intensive Baume This is the best moisturizer I have found (and I have tried a lot). It is so moisturizing and so soothing. I wake up with such moisturized and dewy skin. I’ve found my makeup applies better-even if I’m not applying this in the mornings. It’s a thick cream that can be applied to your face or body. However, it is lightweight and absorbs quickly. This can help with any eczema flair ups I can get under my eyes (haven’t had since using this!). It’s fragrance free, has glycerin, and zinc for redness.
