Products & Tips for Maskne 😷
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone so wearing a mask constantly at work is not helpful for my skin progress. I’ve been recommending a few products to friends and family and figured I’d share what has been working for me! Morning Mask Routine 😷 1. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 2. Flawless Serum by SkinKissed (Vitamin C and HA) 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave (just in mask area) 4. Daily Greens by Farmacy 5. The Beet Shield by Krave (everywhere!) Night Mask Routine 🌝 1. Very Cherry Clean Balm by Farmacy 2. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave 4. Retinal Moisturizer by Allies of Skin 5. Facial Oil (sometimes & it varies) Heavy Hitters ⚾️ 1. Great Barrier Relief Serum by Krave This serum is incredible. It mimics your natural skin barrier so it is perfect for a damaged moisture barrier as well as providing a barrier between your skin and your mask. The Niacinamide in this is also very useful for breakouts! 2. Allies of Skin Retinal /Moisturizer (Vitamin A) You do not need to buy a super expensive retinal product to have an effective retinal. This was a special purchase for myself and I love it but cheaper options exist! Retinal/ Retinol products can be tricky if it’s your first time but they are essentially acne treatment products because they increase your skin cell turnover. I find they increase healing time and prevent breakouts in the first place and I LOVE them for breakouts and breaking a cycle of acne. Retinol Tips: ✨Use at night as main active ingredient (general rule of thumb is to avoid mixing with Vitamin C) ✨Start with small amounts 1-2 times a week and work your way to more consistent use ✨Your skin may “purge” for a few weeks while starting out. That’s normal and it will go away if it is from purging. This can mean breakouts. I also had some peeling when I first started. ✨Pair with a heavier moisturizer to combat any dryness 3. Very Cherry Clean by Farmacy It doesn’t have to be this exact cleansing balm but always double cleanse your skin after lots of mask wearing! This can be any oil-based cleanser. I personally love taking my time, throwing on some music and gently rubbing this on my face for like 10-15 minutes. Why? Because not only do I properly pull off any oil, dirt, makeup and SPF, but it also removes blackheads. So gross but honestly you can see it working if you do it long enough! Blackheads are oil so it makes sense that an oil would be great to clean them out. General Maskne Tips: 💦 Wash your masks between each use 💦 Double cleanse your face as soon as you get home 💦Using a clay mask or sulfur mask once or twice a week will help remove impurities from the skin 💦 Let your skin breathe when you can- I avoid foundation/ CC cream whenever possible and I think it helps me personally. 💦 If you’re really struggling, I’d recommend using the Healing Ointment as a day moisturizer. Talk about a barrier between your skin and your mask! What are your maskne tips??

Oily skin moisturizer awards 🤩
To piggy back on my “oily skin still needs a moisturizer” post I thought I’d present my oily skin moisturizer awards to give a boost to three of my favorites. I wanted to start this out by stating I do have very oily skin. My main concerns are large appearing pores, uneven skin tone, dullness/dehydration. My Holy Grail Moisturizer - FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya If I had to pick one moisturizer to use for the rest of my life this would be it. For $38 you get 1.7oz of whipped hydration. Despite it being a whipped gel texture it’s very lightweight on the skin. A little goes a very long way as it smooths on to give your face the hydration it needs without it feeling heavy. Farmacy claims it has moringa seed extract and moringa water to remove skin impurities while papaya extract gentle exfoliates the skin. I have seen a little difference in the appearance of my pores while using this. I think the only turn off to this product is the very strong sweet smell it has. Best Moisturizer for Oily yet Sensitive Skin - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly This is my go to moisturizer for myself when my skin is freaking out and I need to take a step back from my routine. It’s also what I recommend to customers at work if they have oily yet sensitive skin. It’s one of the best no nonsense moisturizers on the market. It’s fragrance free, dye free, sulfate free, and oil free. The jelly is super lightweight and feels very hydrating on the skin. It contains sunflower seed cake, barley extract, and cucumber fruit extract to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier which is paramount of sensitive or compromised skin. For $28 you get 4.2 oz of product which will last you a while. They also have iD cartridges you can put into it which dispense serum into the moisturizer. The one I have above targets pores which is a concern of mine. It helps bring my skin back to its normal state when irritated while delivering the hydration I need. Best Exfoliating Moisturizer for Oily Skin - GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask Exfoliation is important for oily skin! When I do take a step back from my normal exfoliators I like to use this product in its place. The texture of it isn’t for anyone. It does have a more gloopy formula but I feel like once I work it into the skin it absorbs really nicely. For $45 you get 2.7 oz of product. It has hyaluronic acid and glycerin to hydrate the skin and glycolic and lactic acid to help exfoliate. When I do use this I tend to use it every other day because I don’t want to over do it (even though it is more on the gentle side of chemical exfoliators). When I do use this I notice my skin is extremely soft and hydrated in the morning. It also smells of watermelon jolly ranchers which is amazing!
FARMACY-Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya
Best summer moisturizer launch 2020
“An oil-free, silicone-free daily moisturizer that delivers a lightweight, lasting hydration while helping to clear pores and reduce shine” performance | .9 star | would totally give this a full star, but on Sephora and Farmacy website says it reduces shine, I didn’t experience that. It’s not like it made my face shinier, wasn’t a matte finish like most oil-free products, but I actually liked that about it (just sticking to my review scale of “does it do what is says it’s going to do) texture | full star | literally one of the best textures! Thicc gel yet lightweight and melts right into the skin. the moisturizer itself is that unique green color and I am in love scent | full star | low key kinda reminds me of citronella, but in a good way. Like just smells super citrusy and refreshing but the scent doesn’t linger, no chemical or artificial smells of any sort packaging | .9 star | recyclable glass jar, not sure about the lid, but can def repurpose that with the cute design. Wish the verbiage on the label was a little easier to read ingredients | .75 star | I try to stay away when the list of ingredients is almost the size of text book, nothing too concerning in here though. Would love to see the plant based ingredients come from organic sources. Love that it’s silicone free! value | full star | honestly $38 might seem steep, but this is soooo worth it. On the lower side of cost comparable to most moisturizers in its category and a little goes a long way with this one. def a fave of mine & highly recommend for all skin types during summer Total 5.55 out of 6 stars

My recent samples: 😍😐😣
Today I received my free sample of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and I'm so excited that I decided to a premature post about my recent samples.. The good 😍, the bad 😣 and the meh 😐. Premature because I haven't had the chance to try them all yet so there'll be a part 2 of this post! 😁 My review of the ones I tried is as follows: MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment IT'S AMAZING. So I'm very careful of my hair and never subject it to any treatments. I never used serums until I was 23 (bc my hair was almost 4ft long by then). The only one I trust to use is the one I get from India every year. Two bottles (I don't use it very often) for the whole year. When I didn't get to stock up, I looked elsewhere and honestly, I almost never like any hair serums. I've tried Matrix, The Honest Company, Infusium, OGX and idk what else. But this one is so good. It's almost the same as the one I buy back in India with an equally pleasant smell. And it makes my hair silky smooth. All in all, 5 stars OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer The second product I loved! I can't find a better word to describe the cream than "fresh". Every time I apply it, it feels so fresh on my skin, I love that 😍 Plus it has a very faint yet divine smell. It's a sample and I don't have too many fine lines so I can't comment on the anti-aging claims of this cream. But either way, I'm definitely buying this creme sometime next year when I run out of my current creams. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya This one's the meh. It's not a bad cream but it's not great either. I have drier skin and even a little bit feels too heavy and oily on my face. Plus the smell isn't something I enjoyed. BIOSSANCE - Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm This is the second meh product. Honestly, of the few brands that I really get excited about, biossance is one of them and I can't wait to try their whole line - but this lip balm doesn't do wonders. I use Aquaphor and Vaseline and they work better than this. I do like the really cute bottle though. The texture is similar to Vaseline but with a rose scent. I still use it, but for overnight use I still reach for Vaseline. GLAMGLOW - BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Eye Cream I'm clumping these two together because neither of these worked. The texture of both is not too bad, sometimes even quite pleasant. But if I were to pick one skincare concern for me, it'd be dark circles. And these didn't help. Wish they did but nope. I'm currently trying a couple of others and if they work, I'll post about them soon :) TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist I've realized that I'm just not a fan of face mists. I'm too paranoid they'll blind me or something. Plus this one smells strong when it hits the face, thereby doubling my paranoia. So I'd rather not use it and I'll refrain from rating as well.

Being a mom, I don’t have time for a long daytime skincare and makeup routine!

FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry I use this to brighten and I’m working on some discoloration around my eyes. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya One of the best gel moisturizers I have ever tried! I’m obsessed! it Cosmetics - CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+ This is my favorite daily CC cream Too Faced - Dew You Fresh Glow Setting Powder Gives me the glow as well! LOVE CRAFT BEAUTY - LOVE CRAFT BEAUTY Blush Palette For a little color BUXOM - Lash Mascara Blackest Black One of my favorite mascaras ICONIC - Lip Plumping Gloss My daily go-to and it’s mint flavored! And that’s it! I feel put together and pretty enough to run errands or whatever I have to do during the day! It’s quick and I don’t have to worry about reapplying or anything else! Well other than the lip gloss but normally I don’t even bother! Moms I know you can relate to this 😂 💖💖💖💖💖💖

The why and what to do 💦
What exactly is Seborrhoea?? Seborrhoea (or seborrhea) is the name given to excessively oily skin. It is due to overactive sebaceous glands and can affect both males and females. The oil produced by the skin is called sebum. The scalp and face are most commonly affected by seborrhoea, but other affected body sites may include the chest and folds of skin such as the underarms and under the breasts.* (Definition from dermnet) Skin affected by seborrhoea feels gross, and seems to get dirty quickly. The face appears shiny. Make-up may run off or cake and is difficult to apply. The affected area is often red, and greasy and scaly patches may develop; this is known as seborrhoeic dermatitis. Seborrhoea may also lead to acne. ‼️Although most people with seborrhoea have no other health problems, it is sometimes a sign of underlying Parkinson disease or acromegaly. It may also be due to excessive androgens in women, associated with polycystic ovaries and less commonly, to congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Always consult your doctor if you think you may be suffering from one of these. Sooooo what can you do to keep it under control? Oily skin can be managed by washing the face twice daily with water and a mild soap or an oil-free cleanser. This helps to remove excess oils and keep skin clean. Over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream may help to reduce inflammation (redness and scaling) and antifungal creams help to reduce yeast organisms living on the skin. YUCK. Also make sure you are still moisturizing your skin. Stripping away the oils and not hydrating your face just leads to more oil. Try a gel moisturizer like FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya or boscia - Revitalizing Black Charcoal Hydration Gel these are two of my favorites!! Also make sure you exfoliate 2-3 times a week as well to remove all the dead skin buildup. Have you tried all of these tips but still extremely greasy? Talk to your dermatologist. They may, in severe cases, prescribe : Topical retinoids Antiandrogens (hormone therapy for females) Low-dose isotretinoin Luckily, there are a ton of great products out now for oily skin and I’ve tried a TON!! If you need a recommendation please feel free to ask 💖
