I have a sensitive skin and it has gotten more sensitive when I arrived here in the US, most probably because my skin is adjusting to the weather, food and everything else in between.
Last Sunday, I woke up looking up like this.
This is not the face you put on instagram and hashtag #IWokeUpLikeThis.
This is the face you don’t want to see in the mirror first thing in the morning.
This is NOT what you want to look like two days before your state ID picture-taking.
So I sent this photo to my husband and this was his reaction and my reply to his reaction.
But thanks to a combination of every beauty products that work for me, I was back to normal within 24 hours.
So what’s my secret? An equal dollop of all of the products below.
As you may noticed, the Aquaphor and the Aveeno Hydrocortisone are almost empty (while writing this post, I am texting my husband to pass by Walmart or Target) because unfortunately, last Sunday was not the only worst face day for me lately. On the other hand, I only use the Aveeno sunscreen when I go out of the house.
I only use the Aveeno hydrocortisone if my face is red and itchy. I also add another step if I will go out of the house. I blot my face first with a single ply of a facial tissue (as what I’ve learned from Wayne Goss, the famous YouTuber), before I put on my foundation. I usually do this right after I blow dry my hair so my “concoction” will be absorbed by my skin thoroughly and the excess will simply be removed by the tissue. Remember, just pat your face with the tissue ever so gently and don’t rub it.
So far, this works for me.
I hope to read some of your original beauty concoction too.
