This year, I have winter by the balls. Normally I’d struggle with dry, sensitive skin but I’ve finally found the perfect combination of products that help combat and control dryness with ease and effectiveness
Left to Right:
Northlore Sweetgrass Aura Mist - A naturally scented sweetgrass botanical water made in Saskatchewan. I spray this directly on my face before applying serums and oils - as moist skin absorbs water and oil based products quicker and more effectively.
Ren Everclam Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask - This is a beautiful mask for a quick surge of moisture. Rescue is the key word as I only use it when I start to notice slight flaking or irritations & redness.
The Ordinary Plant Derived Squalane Oil - My holy grail facial oil. I’ve talked a lot about my love for squalane oil and you’ll begin to see it appear in more and more skincare and makeup soon. One of the most stable oils, it doesn’t oxidize on your skin, which means it won’t speed up the aging process. It’s so insanely hydrating and also looks beautiful under makeup or mixed in to sheer our heavier foundations.
Weleda Skin Food - If I had one skincare product to use for the rest of my life, this would be it.
This stuff is ridiculously effective. So nourishing! The name is no joke. You can apply it to the high point of your face for a super natural looking highlight effect; you can concentrate it on very dry and flaky spots; or you can lather it all over like a mask. It makes a great lip mask too. Skin Food layered overtop of Squalane oil for intense moisture is a great combo.
BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask - I own this in 4 out the 5 flavours because it’s the best lip product I’ve ever used.
It’s full of naturally moisturizing ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Bees Wax. Never leaves your lips dry or chapped. I love using it under most lip sticks to sheer out colour, or on it’s own.
It also makes a beautiful highlight on the skin :)
Muji Moisturizing MIlk for Sensitive Skin - I picked this up in the spring and find it’s a great, gentle year round moisture milk as it’s super light. Lots of water, glycerin, squalane and castor seed oil. An awesome product for layering with skincare and makeup. Sometimes I’ll use it in conjunction with the Weleda Skin Food, or on its own if I’m feeling hydrated already.
