Ladies, we all know that our makeup only looks as good as the health of our actual skin, right? And I'm sure we all know, far too well, the challenge and value of finding a product that REALLY WORKS. So, I'm sharing a couple of products that keep me on the glow up and really work for my skin type. They work so well, I use them twice… Morning & Night. FYI, I tend to stay on the oily side, which causes me to be more susceptible to acne and blemishes. If your skin type is anything like mine,you know the struggle! That's why I'm here to help. If you have normal or dry skin, never fear. This post is for you too! I'm sharing bomb beauty products and tips that will benefit all skin types.
ZUM FACE OIL BASE FACIAL CLEANSER
I once heard someone say that oil "combats" oil. I never would have believed them before I took a chance on this oil-based facial cleanser. Funny enough, this product works with my skin to bring miraculous balance to its oily nature-- so I'm not sure "combat" is how I would describe it! (It feels more like a skin love affair). For starters, this product smells like you're at the spa! I am a huge advocate of aroma therapy, so this product's vibrant scent was a HUGE FACTOR for me. Secondly, this cleanser is made up of 100% geranium and lemon essential oils, so it's ALL NATURAL. Lastly, for the win, this baby cleanses every stitch of makeup, dirt and whatever else you have accrued over the day WITHOUT stripping your natural oils. This is not a product that lathers up or that you have to put in a ton of work with to cleanse your face. It's gentle and works with ease. Just 1-2 pumps of it on your Clarisonic (or facial towel/brush of your choice) and it does all of the work for you. Ladies, there is just no way around having clear, healthy skin if it's dirty. So, invest in a QUALITY facial cleanser for your skin type. I promise, it will be the foundation for your skin game glow up.
BARE MINERALS BIOLUCENT MINERAL BRIGTENING TREATMENT
I use this product as a moisturizer. Yes, even those of us have oily skin need to use a moisturizer daily. It is very light, so it does not make my skin oily and it was created to lighten blemishes over time. This product works double for me when I'm looking to stay moisturized and heal my skin from any past breakouts.
P.S. This treatment also makes your skin noticeably softer to the touch :)
RoseHip Seed Oil
I mix just a drop of this all natural oil with my facial and body moisturizers for its healing properties. Roseship Seed Oil is considered a "dry" oil, meaning it absorbs into the skin very well and does not make your skin overly oily. However, the amount needed and its desired benefits overall depend on how oily your skin is naturally. There are also recipes and products that use this oil not only as a moisturizer, but also as a toner and makeup remover. Below are a few skin benefits that Rosehip Seed Oil provides.
Reduces appearance of scars, burns and stretch marks
Treats fine lines and wrinkles
Hydrates dry skin
Evens skin tone (A life saver if you have hyper-pigmentation, age spots or other minor skin discolorations. Know that improvements will not come overnight but rather with time and consistency)
Corrects UV damage from the sun
Aids eczema and psoriasis
