I like to change up my beauty routine every now and then, especially when the weather changes and my skin needs more or less care. This is the routine I have been using for the past month and this routine has helped keep my latest bout of Eczema at bay and has also kept any blemishes from forming. My skin feels hydrated and looks clearer and healthier.
Tea Tree Therapy Antiseptic Solution Tea Tree Oil and Lavender - I use this for my face and body. It is a natural astringent for the face and clears up any grime or bacteria. It has a relaxing smell to it thanks so the Lavender and although it does contain some Alcohol – it doesn’t ever seem to dry out my skin or irritate my skin in any way. I like to use this at night after cleansing to remove any excess makeup. It’s also wonderful to use on the body after shaving or just to keep yourself extra clean!
Nature’s Gate Pure Vitamin E Oil Roll-On – I have used pure Vitamin E Oil in the past with good results but this particular oil is perfect because it comes in a roll-on applicator which makes it so easy to apply to specific areas, especially around the eyes. Vitamin E is amazing for dryness, wrinkles and has many anti-aging properties.
Badger Damascus Rose SPF16 Sunscreen Moisturizer - This is my current daytime moisturizer and SPF. I usually up my SPF during the spring and summer months but this moisturizer has been perfect in the winter and goes on very easily without leaving over any white cast. I also love the scent!
Weleda Almond Facial Cream - (mentioned here) This is my favorite night (and sometimes day) cream. I love this facial cream so much. I cannot believe I haven’t found it sooner. it has helped my dry skin more than I can express. I am very sensitive to facial creams and sometimes even natural ones can tend to contain too many essential oils or botanicals that will irritate my skin, but this cream contains only a few simple ingredients that really help to nourish my skin over night.
Giovanni Refreshing Citrus and Cucumber Cleansing Towelettes - I always use some type of cleansing towelettes and these are my newest find. I really enjoy these and find them to be very moisturizing. I like to have cleansing towelettes for days or nights when I don’t feel like using water or a cleanser to remove makeup or to just freshen up my face.
Mario Badescu Control Cream – I heard about this cream when researching remedies for eyelid eczema/dermatitis and this product kept coming up in forums. I decided to order a small container of it and am really, really loving it. It helps keep redness at bay and the main ingredient, Balsam Peru, is a powerful botanical that provides soothing to skin immediately after application. This cream is perfect for anyone with irritated, sensitive, dry, eczema or rosacea-prone skin.
Facial Exfoliating Pad- These are super affordable and you can find them at most super markets or drugstores. They are really easy to use and wonderful at giving a light or intense exfoliation. I usually wet these with warm water and use on it’s own to gently massage my face or I will use it to massage and remove whatever cleanser I am using.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream - (mentioned here) This is the only non-natural product in my entire beauty routine. I do not like that it contains Petroleum and Mineral Oil but I can’t deny the fact that it seriously cures my eyelid eczema overnight and helps with intense hydration. I use small amounts of this on small areas so I am not too worried about it not being natural.
Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser - (mentioned here) My new favorite facial scrub/cleanser. I only use this twice a week as it is a very intense exfoliation, but the day after using this I can see that my skin looks and feels so much clearer.
Stark Skincare Grapefruit Balm - I received this balm a few weeks ago and it was the perfect deep hydration treatment for my skin. It’s wonderful for removing makeup and for leaving on as a moisturizing mask. I like to use this once or twice a week. I plan to do a full review on this product after at least a month of using it.
Aura Cacia Sandalwood Essential Oil - (mentioned here) I like to use this on dry patches on my skin or on any blemishes. Sandalwood works wonders at fighting bacteria and clearing up eczema or irritated skin and it also smells delicious.
