Skincare is SO personal. Every person’s skin reacts to the environment, foods, allergens, stress, hormones, and dozens of other factors, so it can be tricky to “recommend” products to others. You never know what all is affecting someone else’s complexion. (Hell, half the time I don’t know what’s monkeying with my own complexion.)
But if you’re anything like me, keeping your skin happy is both a passion and an ongoing science project. So I’d love it if you could share a few of your skincare faves and explain why you love them. I’ll get the party started:
Yes To Tomatoes Acne Treatment Spot Stick: One of the ONLY products that works on my super painful cystic acne and regular old acne without making my skin dry and irritated.
Clarisonic Mia: I don’t use the cleanser the company provides – I stick to this super gentle one from Aveda – but I use the brush every other evening. Keeps my skintone relatively even, and helps with keeping breakouts at bay. If I skip more than one night, I definitely see more acne activity.
Shiseido Urban Environment Oil Free UV Protector SPF 42 : Yes, I too wish this stuff was cheaper. But it is the only sunscreen that doesn’t clog my pores (sense a theme, here?) – it’s very thin, almost the consistency of whole milk, and feels totally weightless on my skin. I apply to my face, neck, and back of my neck every day of my life. And the bottle looks small, but generally lasts four or five months for me.
And you? Tell us a few of your skincare favorites!
