Our skin weathers all our lifestyle storms and stands up to all the elements we expose it to.
Though it asks for little in return,
It wants movement to send oxygen to it’s cells, it wants hydration to moisturise it’s cells, and it wants good food choices to nourish it’s cells....
It wants to breathe, but to breathe without pollution from products we don’t even need.
If you’re looking for something wonderful to apply to your skin after all the sun, surf and heat it’s exposed to this summer, then keep it simple & pick a nourishing oil.
Jojoba oil is wonderful and has a small molecular structure making it perfect for absorbing into & nourishing our skin.
If you want a more economical choice, try sweet almond oil or apricot oil - both are very similar and absorb well.
Coconut oil is wonderful too, but as it’s molecular structure is a little larger than our skin’s it can take a little longer to absorb.
Olive oil is wonderfully hydrating on a body with very dry skin and it’s normally in the pantry anyway, but we would normally mix with another oil to be less...olive-y
You can always combine a few oils and reap the benefits of each
You can find them in all in health food stores
I don’t often take #nomakeupselfie ‘s but now that my skin is MOSTLY clear thanks to my #rodanandfieldsunblemish skincare regimen I’m ok with them! Check out the AH-MAZ-ING Active Hydration Serum (which is actually on my face in this photo). It’s great for winter time & dehydrated skin. I’ve been using it EVERY night since I got it about 2 weeks ago. If you are not happy with your current skincare routine & want a change; let me know! I’m happy to help find the right products for you or just click the link in my profile to find them yourself .

I got my Younique Royalty Hydrating Mask in the mail today & I couldn’t wait for my nighttime routine to try it out! I washed my face first, then applied the mask all over my face with the Younique Face Mask Applicator. The wait time is 10 minutes. 🧖🏻♀️ The mask slightly tightened on my face during that wait period. I then went to wash it off, using my wet washcloth to get the last bits off my face.
MY FACE FEELS LIKE BUTTER. I’m serious. I cant stop touching my face! I can’t give you a full review because I have only done one application so far, but my first impression is that my face feels brand new & more plump, without being dried out! #youniquepresenter#firstimpressions#skincaregoals#skincare101#hydratedskin#youniqueroyalty
Wanted to share with ya’ll a new gem that I’ve been trying out and loving @muradskincare ‘s Nutrient Charged Water Gel Now you all know I have my staples that I’ve used for years BUT as I’m approaching my 40’s I find it’s also good to mix things up so that’s exactly what I’ve been doing and when I use something I love and think works I like to share it .
This light weight oil free gel will work fab on ALL skin types (which for me, being a makeup artist and working with all kinds of skins is awesome -although I might just keep this to myself ) .
Packed with vitamins and minerals it locks in moisture for max hydration Available EXCLUSIVELY at @sephora and murad.com
If you are not on the @hint bus you need to jump on it! this anytime but in particularly helpful when eliminating or lessening sugar from your diet. It is sooooooo refreshing! It recommends to chill for drinking but I even love it room temperature!
I used the Tosowoong Pure Snail Anti-wrinkle Mask, which I purchased from @yesstyle The Tosowoong masks are my current favourite because of the results I've had and their fit. Like the other Tosowoong masks from this range it contains Niacinamide for brightening and wrinkle-fighting, Adenocine for moisturized and plump skin. It also contains Snail Slime Filtrate, which repairs damaged skin and restores skin. When I removed the mask from the packet it was saturated in essence. It fitted and adhered to my face perfectly. I loved the scent it has a floral smell which I didn't expect.
I left it on for the recommended time of 20 minutes and it was still damp. I patted the excess essence into my skin it was a bit tacky and it took about 10 minutes to completely absorb.
My skin looked and felt super hydrated, brighter and plumper.
I would use this mask at night because of the tackiness and how long it took to absorb. I enjoyed this mask but I like the previous Tosowoong masks I used a bit more. #tosowoong#nynschallenge#sheetmasks#sheetfaced#sheetmaskaddict#kbeauty#kskincare#skincareaddict#facemask#asianbeauty#hydratedskin#skincareaddict#dehydrated#beauty#skincare#matureskin#abcommunity#selfcare#koreanskincare#abbeathealgorithm
Are you using the right moisturizer for your skin type? It really does make a difference! If your moisturizer is too heavy, it could cause breakouts but if it’s not enough, you could suffer dry skin, which can lead to a whole host of other issues.
