I told myself that when I reach 300 followers, I’d share 3 of my bestest best best best skincare must have products for dry to combi skin types – hence, today’s blog post. These 3 products are of my personal holy grail status and I definitely recommend them to girls who have the same skin type as me. I tend to be rather dry and patchy at my mouth area and a tiny weeny bit oily at the rest of my T-zone area. Before I go any further, please note that none of these products are sponsored – i.e. these are genuinely my HG products.
STEP 1: Remove your make-up (if you have any on)
Prior to using this, I was always relying on raw organic coconut oil to remove my make up. The coconut oil was great – except that removing it completely was so difficult that it clogged my pores a bit. I finally found a make up remover gentle enough to not sting me in the eye,yet strong enough to get rid of even my most stubborn mascara (without resulting in the loss of any of my precious lashes). The Garnier Express 2-in-1 Eye Make-up Remover removes most (not all) of my make up and I find that it does a better job than even my Lancome make-up remover because it really does remove make-up at a faster speed. You must understand that the possibility of ever finding a make-up remover that would completely remove every single trace of grime is close to zero – unless you intend to use half a bottle of remover. If not, then continue with steps 2 and 3.
STEP 2: Try to use a cleanser with less chemicals
If you don’t want to further dry your skin out, using a cleanser with less chemicals is always recommended. I have been using Angels on Bare Skin by LUSH for close to 4 years now. This cleanser is hands-down the best cleanser I’ve tried in my life. It doesn’t break me out, smells like a dream, applies like a dream, washes off like a dream. It has a Christmas edition of itself (with cranberries added in its formula) called something something Noel which I love so much too.
STEP 3: NEVER, EVER FORGET TO FINISH UP WITH A TONER
About 3 months ago, I finally began using a toner because I found one that is suitable for my hyper-sensitive skin type. Previously, I have tried many brands but all of them either broke me out or left a burning sensation on my skin. The results with this baby has been amazing. My skin is not as dull as it used to be and I have experienced far less breakouts than I had before. This is ALL thanks to the Caudalie Moisturizing Toner that is formulated for hypo-allergic skin. I use this twice a day, after cleansing in the morning and after cleansing at night. This toner is so very gentle on the skin and does the final work of cleansing for your face that your facial wash may not have accomplished. To be honest, I always find residue on my face even after using a make up remover and using a facial foam and I only realized this when I started using this ahhhhhhmazing toner – which you NEED TO BUY PRONTO. I keep telling this to almost every girl I meet.
That’s all for this post, thanks for reading and an especially huge thank you to my current 300 followers who have been religiously supporting me and my little posts – you girls really do make my day!
P.S. Pardon any grammar or spelling errors – I’m thoroughly exhausted from work right now!
