Halloween is over. My skin hurts. I've spent the day trying to get it to stop burning and feeling so dry. So I thought, why not post about what I do in such circumstances.
This is not my everyday routine. This is when my skin needs some help. My normal routine is much more simple.
First I spray through out the day with Caudalie Grape Water spray. It's a spray "toner' that soothes and moisturizes skin. It's good for sensitive skin and it is very dewy. It feels so good on the skin. It's probably my most necessary product
Next I used a soothing face mask. I used Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask today. I rarely use this but I had ran out of Sephora sheet masks and eye masks and desperately needed something so I used this. I would've rather had a Sephora mask but this works well too.
After that I used thick moisturizer. I used L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream. It's very thick and feels (and smells) amazing. I used it this morning and at night.
For my eyes I used Origins Ginzing Refreshing eye cream this morning. They were looking pretty rough so I used this to depuff and birghten the area it's also kinda thick. Then at night I used a thicker eye cream from Clarins called Super Restorative Eye Concentrate.
Lastly I used Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I rarely use this because the smell is intense. The reason I do use it thought is because of the Blue Tansy and Chamomille oils in it. They're whole purpose is to soothe. This also has Retinol but the Blue Tansy keeps the skin from getting irritated by it. I used the oil first at night before I spray my toner, or use my moisturizers, since it's a serum.
Other than that, I just try to get a good night's sleep and hydrate as much as possibly. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I do plan on using the Cover FX Calming Primer tomorrow along with a sponge to apply my foundation so that it's not rubbing on the skin. I also won't be using glitter for a little while as well lol.
Some of these products are really expensive some other good alternatives are: Argan Oil, Origins Night A Mins moisturizer, Sanitas Oil Free Moisturizer, Aloe Vera gel, Sephora sheet and eye masks ($5) , and Witch Hazel.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
