Since this weather has been so up and down all year, I’ve really had to make sure that I was taking better care of my skin. I am simple when it comes to the products I use, I acknowledge my skin troubles and then search for the best possible options for me. Far from a skin care guru, but I wanted to shared the things that have literally brought my skin back to life.
Skin Care Essentials
I’ve posted this first one before on my Instagram story a while back when I learned about it and started using it. The Deep Cleanser by Tatcha is my favorite for when I’ve been wearing a lot more make up than usual, or when it’s really humid outside. Humidity causes my skin to become very oily, and this product has been my number one for this Summer. After use, I’m left with a fresh natural look and feel!
Now, I mentioned my skin being oily, but that’s only seasonal. My skin can get really dry and flaky as well, not cute when you’re having face to face conversations and meetings. Belif’s Hungarian Water Essence serum has been my go-to for long lasting hydration. I use it right after cleaning my face. It’s so light weight and moisturizing even before applying my cream! Another great thing, this product is free of any synthetic preservatives, fragrances dye and animal origin ingredients.
This next one, The Truth Cream – Moisturizing Bomb, also by Belif is so so amazing!! First of all, I am obsessed with this brand all together. But, this moisturizer has any other one I’ve ever used by far. No exaggeration. It has apothecary herbs and Comfrey leaf, which assists with an ultra-hydrating feel. This cream leaves my skin so silky and smooth, not to mention it smells so fresh.
Having something to carry around with you whenever you need a refreshing pick me up, anywhere, at anytime. Maria Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe Herb and Rose Water does just that, over a beat or bare fare face. You can use it to set your make-up too!
Last, but not least, this one has been such a struggle for me, ever since I was a kid, my lips get very very dry. It’s horrible and so annoying at the worst possible times! One day, as I was shopping aimlessly in Sephora I decided to just check out their moisturizing options they had for lips. And that’s when I found the Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm by First Aid Beauty! Whoa. When I say that I’ve literally tried only every lip balm you can imagine .. I tested them all. This is one that I’ll purchase again and again!
