I've been whining here for a while about my problematic skin and for now things are looking a little better. I changed all my products and gave it some time so see what works and what not. And these following products have been the saviors for my skin.
To cleanse my face I use Shue Uemura's cleansing oil. I really don't need to use separate eye make up remover because this miracle oil removes it as well. I'm still looking for a good toner, but in a meanwhile I'm using some lotus flower toner from Yin Spa. For moisturizier I use Sonya Dakar's Omega 3 Repair Complex -Acne oil. It's 100% botanical and leaves my skin real silky and super moisturized, but not oily. I absolutely love this product and use it mornings and evenings after cleansing. Sometimes I switch between the Omega 3-oil and RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer.
For eyes I use Lumene's Vitamin C+invigorating eye serum that has a neat roll-on applicator. And random breakouts I tackle with Burt's Bees Willow bar targeted acne spot treatment or Body Shop's Tea Tree oil.
After showering, while my skin is still damp, I rub on generously all over my body some Cocoa Butter Body Oil. I love the scent and it absorbs fast without leaving you feeling greasy. Another oil I use every now and then is Sephora's Guava Passion Dry Oil. The scent is heavenly, but it really does not moisturize as well as the Cocoa Butter Oil. No more dry winter skin! Woohoo!
I only use Bare Escentual's mineral make up that is light on my skin and makes my skin glow and look healthy. I start with the primer and then use 2 different tone foundations, bronzer and for finishing touch I brush on mineral veil for all day lasting freshness.
This skin care routine seems to work for me right now and my skin seems happy. Of course there are other things that you need to do in order to maintain healthy skin such as drinking enough water, avoiding sun and getting facials. I NEED TO get facial once a month, right after I'm done with my period in order to clean out all impurities and clogs.
