I know I can’t be the only one out there. My problem with my skin has never involved breakouts, it’s main problem has always been dryness! I’m glad I don’t fight acne but in particularly dry times of the year I have to battle to make my skin not resemble that of dragon hide, and I’ve never been convinced that’s been all too better.
Beauty products have always been geared towards fighting oil, fighting acne, drying skin with the S word….. “Salicylic Acid”…. I’m pretty sure that ingredient has been the bane of my existence since I was a pre-teen and started worrying about my skin.
I can’t figure out why so many people are obsessed with washing their faces with these harsh chemicals constantly. It’s a horrible cyclical pattern. You use some crappy, harsh, mass marketed face wash. It dries your skin. You think, “hey this is great my skin doesn’t look shiny”. Then, to overcompensate that face wash stripping your face of natural and healthy oils, your skin makes MORE oil, making your skin MORE oily, making you use their product more often!
I’ve gotten to know enough people that have finally gotten it through their head not to shampoo their hair daily, why is it so hard to apply the same principle to your skin? Your skin produces oils, don’t fight it, embrace it, learn to care for it.
It is a pattern in my beauty obsession that I do love naturally derived products, free of harsh chemicals, fragrances, or dyes. I do list Nuxe as one of my favorite skin product brands but my absolute favorite and must have product is their Rêve de Miel® Facial Cleansing and Make-Up Removing Gel
“Soap free” is your new buzz word for facial cleansers. Trust me.
This amazing holy grail of facial washes is made with plant based cleansers, and oh the honey! I love honey…. it may be my favorite substance in this world. It’s a close contender with the coconut at the very least. You will absolutely love the feeling of this thick and luscious product on your face and it feels like heaven after you rinse as well.
Just promise me you’ll stay away from that horrifying curse word of an ingredient, Salicylic Acid.
