What do you do to take care of your body/skin/face? And do you have any tips?
This is turning out to be quite long so beware!
Well, first off, I have very sensitive skin. I can’t use anything that has fragrance :( I haven’t ventured too far from things I know work with my skin - anything fro Aveeno and Clinique. For my body I use Aveeno Skin Relief for my body wash as well as Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion to keep myself from getting all scaly and dry (my sister calls me a lizard because of this haha). I slather on sunscreen (at least 35SPF) if I know I have to be outside but I prefer to go all vampire and hide inside on hot sunny days.
For my face I have a routine mostly involving Clinique products. I wash my face with the mild facial soap and scrub with the exfoliating scrub. Then I put on the Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Remover (which I love btw, it keep my skin feeling even and while you can’t tell right away that the dark spots are fading, it does work over time) and finish off with the Dramatically Different Moisturizer. Lately though, I ran out of my moisturizer so I’ve been using a sample I have of Clinique’s Moisture Surge which feels really nice, like it moisturizes longer.
And I’m not blessed with clear skin so when I start to breakout I have Clinique’s acne spot treatment which dries out my skin like no other but it reduces the size of the blemish beautifully. I used to use Clean and Clear’s fight and fade gel treatment, it was also effective the but the gel consistency was annoying to me because I didn’t feel like it was absorbing into my skin quick enough. It would rub off and I would worry if it was working or not so I’d put on more, drying out that spot more.
Long story short: Moisturizing is really important to me and I try to stay out of the sun.
