It's raining! It's sunny! Oh, it's so windy?! is it raining, again??
If you're from Seattle you know the weather can be unpredictable, and all you can do around this time of the year is to wear layers. If you get hot? just remove your jacket! If you're cold, you run to your car to get that spring sweater that you forgot about.
That part is easy, but what happens when your skin is just not catching up with the constant changes? Sometimes all 4 seasons in one day? Let's not mention not getting enough sleep, or... the lovely stressful moments we get to deal throughout the day! YES, we all know eating fresh veggies, healthy meals and drinking lots of water helps!! But sometimes we just need help.
Here are some of my fave products that help my skin heal :)
I think this is one of the steps that I love the most! I tend to exfoliate at least once a week, sometimes I take the "time" to pamper and prep something from my kitchen... Like mixing some warm honey with sugar and a few drops of lemon. Let's be honest, I'm always running late.
Lately, I've been using a product that I got from Ashley with Rodan & Fields, this amazing paste just melts on your skin and removes ALL the yuckies from your face! I love this product so much, I use it all the time!
2- MOISTURIZE :)
DON'T forget to use a moisturizer, your skin needs it! I use something light in the morning and at night, I go with something a little bit heavier.
Dr Jart+, If you know me by now you know I looooove Dr. Jart+. The Water drop is the coolest moisturizer on the market, it's light, the way it glides on your skin like "water drops" it makes me look and feel refreshed, makeup goes on smoothly. I also find that my T-zone doesn't get oily as usual. You can get this at Sephora.
Embryolisse, is completely different! It's almost like butter, it melts on your skin. I tend to use this at night, and by the morning my skin is all plump and all I have to do is rinse my face and use a light coat of concealer and I'm ready to GO! You can get this at Sephora.
*Quick tip- for better results, massage onto your skin.
3- MASKS 0.o
Oh, I lied!!! This is what I enjoy the most, sitting or laying down, not having to move for 20 min, sometimes not having to rinse OR moisturize after... Waking up with radiant skin... YUP! SIGN ME UP!!!
These are my absolute favorite that will leave you with a glow. Get them HERE
