Skincare is really important and as winter approaches, for those who are affected by the dryness and the cold (like me) there are minor changes to my care habits. I'll just go through my basic routine if anyone wants to post the same I really encourage it :D Everyone is different and I think its really interesting how people's skincare regimens differ. So please, indulge me!
Preface: I have oily/combination skin which is really tricky to care for because I have zones that will break out with too much moisture, and areas that are super dry. So every day is a challenge in balancing everything out. That said, these are all just personal endorsements for products I've been using for a while and have been happy with.
There are two brands I really gun for as far as skincare/personal hygiene goes. DHC is one.
I use their olive soap (pictured at the top) and the Cleansing Foam on alternating days. It's suitable for every type of skin. I love DHC because many of their products are very mild and when I was younger, I had very sensitive skin and DHC was one of the only facial soaps that worked and didn't irritate my face.
The other brand I'm in love with is Lush. Their Breath of Fresh Air Toner really helps keep my skin soft. Plus it smells like a light sea breeze!
My Acerola Cream by DHC which I rescued from the post office today was the inspiration for my post. Suitable for oily type skin (me, though in reality I am combination) and normal type, it's my new winter moisturizer.
Adore DHC's lip cream, basic, non scented or tinted, just long lasting moisture without being greasy or sticky
I use Lush's Ocean salt scrub about once a week. The top layer is sea salt crystals and you mix the jar up to get a thick, lemon juice and vodka scrub with avacado butter. Also makes me hungry.
I still get acne. It's a bitch, but not much I can do about it. I treat it with DHC's
Acne Spot Therapy and Lush's Grease Lightning when it's not too bad. This was a bigger problem over the summer where I just had some of the worst break out weeks of my life
How do you care for your face?
