My Skincare Awards 🏆 Moisturizer Edition
My Skincare Awards 🏆 Moisturizer Edition
Finding a good moisturizer for eczema and milia prone sensitive skin is key! Over the years, my skin type has ranged from oily to dry to combination. Here’s my selection from favourite to least favourite: 1. GRAYDON - The Putty This is a moisturizer that has really come through for me, specifically during the eczema days 👏🏽 Scent: oatmealish Price: $46 CAD/50mL I gave this product a try after receiving for free at work, I found it a little thick for the face at first so I mostly used it on my neck, where I had eczema. With ingredients like zinc, colloidal oatmeal, hemp seed oil, manuka honey, turmeric, it’s meant to be soothing for irritated skin... and it proved to be so, I’m glad it fell into my hands 💝 I really admired what it did for my neck that I started using it on my face too *over damp skin* so it would absorb better, and it kept my face moisturizer and protected during the cold winter. I’ve repurchased this in a FULL SIZE quantity and recommended it to friends ✨ 2. sahajan - Nourish Face Cream This is great for everyday use, under makeup too. Scent: mature lotion Price: $60 CAD/50mL I also got this for free at work and was excited to try it as I really admire the premise behind this Ayurvedic brand. Though after a few months, the cream’s texture goes from silky smooth to a bit hardened with some crunchier bits, once it melts in your palms it makes for a nice application that mattifies the skin. Great before applying makeup or just having fresh, semi-glowing skin. I apply it on over damp skin as well. Although it contains coconut oil, I find that it doesn’t break me out. I’ve definitely recommended this to my friends and will probably be repurchasing this once the winter comes around. 3. wildcraft - Bergamot Rose Face Cream This was one of the first moisturizer I remember investing in once I discovered Hyaluronic acid and needed something for the eczema on my face. Scent: ylang ylang Price: $26 CAD/60mL This is a little more on the greasy side, but at the time I found it quite nourishing for my dry, flakey skin. However, after using it almost daily for a few months is when I started noticing milia starting to form on my face, so I questioned whether this moisturizer was too rich for my skin. I’ve been using it less frequently since just wanting to use it up but also not wanting to chance it anymore, so I might finish it off as a body butter 🥴 I purchased this 3 times, but won’t be repurchasing it again since finding the 2 aforementioned moisturizers that I prefer more! Won’t be recommending this to friends anymore unless they want an affordable option. What’s your favourite moisturizer?!

Restocking on empties of my recent favourites that I’ve been using since February. At first I was only using them on my face, but as I had a developing eczema rash since January, I was ready to try anything. Since the Face Food mist (hydrating, anti-pollution toner) is packed with anti-inflammatory, collagen-enhancing minerals (silver, copper, zinc, magnesium) & the Putty (pUH-tee 😜) pomade contains soothing colloidal oatmeal and restorative ingredients (honey, turmeric, zinc, hemp oil), I realized the results would be quite obvious. After all, these two products from a clinically-proven superfood Canadian skincare line have been beneficial for dry and inflammatory faces. Besides your skincare is encouraged to be applied onto your neck too... ✨ which I never previously considered much. So look at the results after about 3 weeks of use, starting near the end of March (my neck looked like it did in February, but a bit worse throughout most of March, so I just didn’t focus on taking “progress” pics because I was hopeless with the eczema.) Within a few days of mixing the two products in my palm first and then applying on my neck for better absorption, I noticed that, unlike other eczema balms, I only needed to apply the mixture on twice a day, morning and night, that’s how moisturizing it is at a CELLULAR level! I have fallen in love with this stuff, it also smells great (FF: vanilla, P: cream oats,) so I decided to get the big sized bottles after my empties, and the cool thing is I get to reuse my Face Food mist bottle (bonus sustainability point). Although, the airless pump may be hard to recycle conventionally, you can always submit your beauty product empties to Terracycle!♻️ And as for eczema, I just want to say that its pathological root cause is very complex for each individual. I’m still figuring mine out, but I’m pretty sure it’s nutrition & stress related. So I look up to skincare as a maintenance practice, that keeps my skin relatively healthy, while I’m figuring out the other pieces of the puzzle. 💝 Stay tuned for how I clear up the scars + hyperpigmentation, this isn’t the first time I’ve dealt with this!

Hemp Oil: great for body AND face 🌿
Hemp Oil: great for body AND face 🌿
Hemp oil has been so good to my combination, eczema-prone skin 😍 Hemp oil is a carrier oil that normally constitutes the majority of the product concentration. A part of Cannabis sativa, it is therapeutic to the skin. Containing nutrients like omega rich fatty acids and proteins, its topical use is found to strengthen the skin and more resistant to infection - sounds like a win/win to maintain eczema! It’s nourishing for the face AND smooths out the skin on the rest of your body. I found out about this ingredient when I started frequenting marijuana shops about 4 years ago. I noticed that there was a whole moisturizer line with the name “Hemp” in it. As tempted as I was to try this, I stayed off trying any of it because when I read the ingredients it contained fragrance 🤬 Fast forward to December when I started working in another clean beauty shop where Graydon plant powered skincare is sold and as I learned more about the products and ingredients, I couldn’t help myself but to try... and months later, using hemp oil in my products from face to whole body, no regrets! Face GRAYDON - The Putty Y’all know I love this. It soothes eczema and any irritation quite well. Very nourishing and protective for the dry winter. Leaves a smooth face. Body & hair tbh GRAYDON - Intimacy Oil Ugh I love this too. & no it’s not what you think! 🤪 At $50CAD/ 100mL, I tried not to buy this for the longest of time, but honestly every time I sampled it I fell deeper and deeper in love. Even before dampening the skin, this oil absorbs quite quickly and does not leave a sticky feeling on the skin which is a great incentive to use this as a form of moisturizing dry skin more often. Ash be gone! It’s so nourishing that I even use it on my hair on wash day as it adds a nice sheen. I also really admire its serene scent.

My Top 3 Products for “Healing” Eczema
My Top 3 Products for “Healing” Eczema
The truth is healing eczema isn’t as simple as applying on creams and ointments, alone. It’s a whole process, from stress management to better nutrient intake to looking into underlying conditions, like thyroid issues. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t find the right skincare to manage eczema. Over the years, I’ve tried various products and topical remedies, and though it can be tricky to sift through all the right formulas... I have finally found the right ones for me! Hydrate with Corpa Flora - Antidote HB5 Hydration which contains hydration-boosting propanediol, hyaluronic acid, pro vitamin B5 and promoting collagen, making the skin more firm. This really helped me with dry patches on my face, I don’t get those anymore! 💦 Moisturize & Soothe with GRAYDON - The Putty which contains restorative ingredients, such as zinc, hemp oil, turmeric, manuka honey. It’s so soothing, I noticed changes within a few days and only needed to apply it twice a day vs some other eczema solutions that require constant reapplication due to excessive dryness. 🤗 Sanitize & Repair with purO3 - Ozonated Olive Oil which is a One ingredient powerhouse. Honestly this is my holy grail y’all! The only reason it’s a 4 ⭐️ is due to the strong scent, which my partner doesn’t enjoy sleeping next to when I use it 😅 but ozonated oil is honestly the one for stopping skin infections, like Staphylococcus aureus in its tracks, and on top of that, repairing the skin so the S. aureus doesn’t repenetrate the skin. I’ve been using this one for years! 🙏🏽 What are some of your favourite eczema solutions? 💞

Valentina’s Introduction
Hey lovelies, I’m so excited to be here, a social media app for skincare - whaaaat a dream come true! 💫 My personal skincare journey began when I started getting eczema on my neck, face, arms, legs in university, which I graduated with a BScience. I knew about the risks of using topical steroids, so I’ve been adamant on finding holistic ways to treat my case of eczema by first understanding the root cause. It’s a complex journey, as I’ve come to understand that there are different causes for eczema, such as stress, nutrition deficiencies, allergies, genetics, etc. So I began looking into skincare to find ways to manage my skin health while figuring out my entire health 🤪 Growing up with sensitive skin, I stayed away from most beauty products to avoid getting adverse reactions from certain synthetic ingredients... until I started looking into the benefits of clean, plant-based ingredients. And I make sure to look out for greenwashing! 🤓 I’ve since found that when I use the right ingredients, my skin actually thanks me. I now also look at skincare as part of self care rituals that our ancestors took on for many generations. In the past couple years, my passion has been focused on working out a skincare formula to soothe eczema-related rashes and infections. In the meanwhile, I’ve started working at a conscious, ethical beauty studio, Portia-Ella that carries ~40 Canadian brands, mostly led by women. I love working with our empowering team, which fuels my growth/self-development. We get a lot of training on ingredients and interact with various skin types, so I’m always happy to help! 🥰 In these photos, from Valentine’s Day, I’m holding some of my favourite skincare products of all-time, which you can find at Portia-Ella (online too.) I’ll be reviewing them in future posts 🤩 What’s your current skincare obsession? 🙌🏽 GRAYDON - The Putty WOODLOT - Nourishing Cleansing Balm GRAYDON - Face Food Mineral Mist Corpa Flora - Antidote HB5 Hydration
