everyday products // skincare and makeup

i have fallen into a delightfully easy skincare and makeup routine.  my goal is to always look the same (aka like i’m not wearing any makeup), but change up the products when i need or want to.  so for the past few months, this has been my routine, every single day.  the products at the bottom are the ones that i add in when necessary, like face masks or lipstick.  bb daily skincare.jpgmorning skincare routine //

the moisturizer that changed my skin

bb avene 1.jpga bold claim, i know, but stay with me here.  for as long as i have had issues with acne, i have used the cetaphil tub moisturizer on my face – at least in the winter.  and come summer, i would switch to just an oil or something lighter, and my skin would clear up, which i assumed was because of the sun or saltwater or just relaxation that came with the summer months.  and then, a few weeks ago, it occurred to me that the one constant in my skincare routine has been the cetaphil tub.

i am so lucky to be able to regularly see a dermatologist, but i always take her advice with a grain of salt.  for example, the warning that all oils clog your skin.  from my own thorough research, i know this is not true.  but when she recommend the tub all those years ago, i took that piece of advice with dedication.

long story short, this thick cream, while great for the body, is pure shit for my face.  it actually has an oil (take that, derm!) in it, as well as petrolatum and dimethicone.  i can now see how not only was this product wreaking havoc on my face because of the ingredients and most likely the thickness, the oils i would layer on top during the winter probably aided in the clogging of my skin.

after this realization, i immediately ordered the avene skin recovery cream – a lightweight but moisturizing lotion that is ideal for overly sensitized skin and skin that is post procedure.  because i use two acne topicals, one that is a retinal as well, my skin is definitely dry and definitely sensitive.  the avene skin recovery cream, while i am going through a period of dryness because i no longer have that petrolatum in my routine, is moisturizing without being heavy.  i am able to layer my beloved leo oil or indie lee squalane without any clogging (i don’t do this every night and day anymore to save my skin from too much excess).bb avene 2.jpgimmediately following the end of the tub and the beginning of the avene i have noticed such a change in my skin, from reduced redness and clogging to all over evenness.  i don’t know if i will stick with the avene forever – it’s very expensive for the small size you get and the ingredients are that “clean” – but for now it is my very special friend.bb avene 3.jpglast night i used the la roche posay cicalplast baume b5 for something a little heavier and different almost as a treatment, but i know as soon as a move away from such a dry climate a lighter lotion like the avene will be enough for me.  the la roche posay is an excellent, very very gentle balm that i use on my eyelids and lips when they are dry and cracked (does that happen to anyone else’s lids?!  UGH!).  i also now see the importance in mixing up what i’m using, as in notthe same oil and lotion combo day and night, to make sure my skin doesn’t get too clogged from something extra heavy day in and day out.  my baby wash cloths are still on hand for gentle exfoliation, as well as masks and other items.  my main goal with my skin is to be extremely gentle but still performance-driven, but i really do have sensitive skin and need to treat it with care.bb avene 4.jpg. . .
