Skin Care

I have really sensitive skin. I still haven't perfected my skin care and beauty routine and would love to find better options. But if you have sensitive skin like me, here are a few things I have found to work well!

 

Cleanser - for the past few months I have been using Philosophy Purity Made Simple facial cleanser ... I use this morning and night, I love it for a make up remover it literally melts away my mascara and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean.

 

Moisturizer - moisturizers are so important and the hardest thing for me. So many moisterizers seem so heavy to me and clog up my pores like crazy. I recently switched to Cetaphil face and body lotion after someone describes it to me as "it's like putting the most boring vanilla yogurt on your face" hahaha. But actually. There's no scent, it's very lightweight yet absorbs completely into my skin and helps with my make up application. So far I'm loving it and noticing my skin improving.

 

Tinted Moisterizer - on days that I'm just running to the grocery store I don't wanna do the full face thing. I have been trying out Glossier's skin perfecting tint and I'm obsessed. Don't expect a ton of coverage, but it blurs imperfections just enough and I feel like it allows my skin to breathe.

 

CC Cream - I recently started testing out IT cosmetics CC cream. It is a full coverage cream with SPF, anti-aging benefits and brightening serum. So far I am loving it. It's a nice middle ground between the very lightweight tinted moisturizer and a full on foundation. I really skimped on sun protection in my teens and early twenties, and now that 25 is sneaking up on me I'm becoming very aware on skin care. I know that sounds silly and I'm still very young but it's so important to prevent!

 

Foundation - On days where I do wanna look refined and pulled together I have a go to I have been using for over a year now. Too Faced Born This Way. I love it because it is lightweight yet gives me medium to full coverage. It's the best I have found as far as not irritating my face and keeping break outs limited.

 

If you girls have similar issues and have found a favorite I would love to know what works for you!
