Why does my skin react different night vs day?
Over the years I have gone through hundreds of products figuring out what works for me. I have finally found a good set of products that I love, but sometimes when I use certain products in the daytime (such as Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil and certain facemasks, I breakout so much worse than I do when I use the same exact product at night! I am confused by this so I have been wondering if it’s related to my oil levels throughout the day or what? Should I be using more drying products in the day time and hydrating at night? The only ones that really work for me day and night are The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil although I know Hyram has said oils are not for the face
My favorite body products & scents of 2020!
I’m a huge fan of vanilla-Esque, musky scents, and on the flip side I love very clean scents. That being said here are my favorite body products & Scents! LUSH - American Cream Shower Gel which I pair with the matching perfume LUSH - American Cream Perfume . This stuff is straight up the most delicious scent. 🤤 It’s fresh, yet at the same time has a bit of sweeter scent that reminds me of vanilla, despite it being strawberry and orange. I always smell so good with these products and the perfume lasts pretty much all day! I’m also enjoying #Lush - Honey I Washed the Kids Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] , the scent is so yummy and sweet, and in the shower it takes on a warmer, more toffee-honey scent. I love to pair it with Maison Margiela - ’REPLICA’ By The Fireplace , which Is ALL the musk and vanilla I could possibly need. This stuff transports me to a big bonfire roasting marshmallows. It’s so hard to describe, but it smells amazing. It’s very strong, so If you’re sensitive to scents just keep that in mind. #Shiseido - Hadasui Skin & Body Lotion[products]#[FiveStars] this has almost no scent and has a watery consistency. I like to apply it all over my body and then follow up with Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil on my dry spots (elbows, knees, etc.) I personally love the smell of bio oil and I also love how light the Hadasui is, it hydrates without making the skin on my body feel sticky. My staple perfume that I’ve been using for years are #Soap & Paper Factory - Vanilla Fleur Roll-On Perfume Oil[products]#[FiveStars] which has the richest vanilla-bourbon scent, I’ve gotten compliments for years whenever I wear this! It just smells so good and lasts all day, the product lasts a long time (about 1 yr I have to buy a new one), and it comes at an affordable price point. 💕 So there they are! My 2020 Body Care Faves. What are some of yours?
I have completed my first month of accutane! Now that I’ve finished the first month, my dosage is going up so I’m anticipating more dryness. 😩🏜 PROS: WILL I EVER WASH MY HAIR AGAIN!? It’s never greasy anymore and has so much body! THIS PART IS BOMB. Cons: oh my aching EYES. You know when it’s allergy season and your eyes ache and burn? Well picture that but like you’ve slept with your eyes pried WIDE OPEN ALL NIGHT with sand and sun blowing into them. Also, skin around nose is dry AF. Love looking like I have bats in the cave at all times. Also my hands peel?! I’ve never had ashy dry hands til now. Products that have been helpful when dealing with the shedding uglies and dry skin misery: CeraVe - Healing Ointment Feels greasy but offers sweet relief from painful skin cracking. Dr.Dan's - CORTIBALM LIP BALM HOLY GRAIL LIP BALM. Bio-Oil - Dry Skin Gel Feels greasy, but makes body skin feel nice after showering and before bed. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer Sinks into skin nicely, doesn’t clog my pores, keeps skin feeling good all day. Murad - Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ I loved this before accutane and still love it. It’s a nice sunscreen because there’s no white cast and the shiny goes away quickly. GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Nice applicator and bottle, sinks in quick and not sticky! AND ITS CHEAP. Winner!! Tried one bottle and ordered three more because it offers such a nice hydration boost. ACCUTANE USERS: I CANNOT RECOMMEND THE DR DANS LIP BALM ENOUGH. IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING for painful lip cracks, shedding, and tightness in the lips. 1000000% worth finding.
Eczema level sensitive skincare-makeup friendly
SKIN TYPE I have sensitive dry skin, acne-prone and most sensitive to weather changes since I’m allergic to things like pollen, dust and the wiNd🙄👁👄👁. I get eczema flare ups every other week (itchy, flaky skin and inflamed) so I use prescribed corticosteroid ointments when needed. My biggest struggle would probably be closed comedones and dehydrated skin (don’t drink enough water). — most of the products I use are regularly switched out of the routine accordingly to the weather and how the skin be on the day as well as new skincare releases👀 but the products listed below have been used for at least 4months to a year and are my main🥵💓 Avène - Skin Recovery Cream ￼Pros include the cream actually doing what it’s supposed to do and that is repairing the skin barrier! I use this even when my skin is cracked and inflamed as it is extremely hydrating and soothing; putting this cream on feels so good, doesn’t sting and dries down matte unlike most creams. The cream also boasts an innovative hygienic “pump” opening that when you squeeze the product out dust and fluff won’t be going back into the tube preventing bacteria growth. ￼Cons include the cream being quite a tHiCc boi and little bit pricey ($29 in Aus.). Bio-Oil - Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel ￼From their site: “a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base.” it’s true to their product name an oil in gel form. Pros include its scar fading properties (helped brightened skin), actually adding back some natural oils to the skin for the severely dehydrated skin helping recover the skin barrier, non-irritating and I personally feel like helps prevent moisture evaporation even when you already have layered serums. Extremely cheap and affordable also available in 3 sizes but even the smallest size 50ml lasted me for months. ￼Cons include that it’s literally an oil🥺 if you accidentally put too much on you can feel it in ✨your s o u l✨ LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner ￼Pros include that it’s kind of a lightweight, milky-liquid version of Avene Skin Recovery Cream due to similar functions and purpose such as being extremely hydrating and repairs the skin barrier but this toner also is quite cooling thus soothes the skin (especially when it feels inflamed) and is a good way to prep the skin even during summer whereas the Avene may feel too heavy during hotter weather. You can also soak a cotton pad in this and use it as a mini-mask. Personally although it’s not irritating and has never caused a flare up it stung a bit on raw skin🤧, but other than that there hasn’t been any adverse effects. ￼Cons include how ✨pricey✨ it is, although it’s kind of worth it full size 150ml depending on where you buy it they might charge a bit more than usual like Sephora often charging more than Yesstyle or the physical Laneige stores depending on your location. The mini size 50ml use to be $5-7AUD on Yesstyle👀

Bio Oil Skincare Oil
I’ve always suffered from stretch marks whether from growing too fast or weight gain and it’s always been hard to find a product that works to diminish the appearance. I started usingBio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil a few weeks ago and I have already noticed a change in the appearance of my darker stretch marks and I can’t wait to see what a few more weeks will do. If you suffer from stretch mark issues I would highly recommend to try this product.
Bio-Oil-Multiuse Skincare Oil
After about two weeks of using Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil I have come to the conclusion that it is not the right product for me. I have noticed little to no fading of my acne scars. I have been applying the product every night and about every other morning and I still haven’t seen much of a difference. I will continue to use this product since I bought a fairly large bottle but I will also be continuing my search for a product that will be more effective and fade my acne scars.
Bio-Oil-Multiuse Skincare Oil
Must have for dry skin!
I need to post this if you’re considering buying it because it works so well for so many skin types and you can easily find it at stores like Walgreens! Helps with older skin or pregnancies and all around just dry skin. 4.2 oz is $17.99 at Target Pricing is higher but your skin will thank you! It’s the only thing that has helped my mom with dry skin, she’s obsessed! And I really enjoyed it while pregnant.
Bio-Oil-Multiuse Skincare Oil
My current skincare routine consists of CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser, then up&up - Deep Cleaning Pore Treatment at night, then Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil, and finishing it off at CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin. I want to add The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%into my routine but I'm not sure where it fits in or how to apply the product. I am new to serums like that. Any recommendations? All and any input is wanted!! Thank you.
