Skincare Sunday – October

Skincare SundayOctober Recap

STEP 1:

WHAT: Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil

WHY: I’ve always heard that Coconut Oil was a good makeup remover but I’ve never tried it. Since I started my natural journey, I’ve been slowly incorporating more natural products into my routine. I wear waterproof black eyeliner and mascara almost every day and I found now that I’ve been using it, I tug on my eyes less and the product comes off so easily and I have little fallout of my lashes. Coconut Oil has been said to help with wrinkles around the eyes as well.

STEP 2:

WHAT: The Body Shop Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam

WHY: I love creamy face washes and this one is made volcanic ash from Jeju Island and helps purifies pores from pollution. It also helps with excess sebum, even though I don’t particularly have oily skin, this hasn’t dried me out and I only use it at night.

STEP 3:

WHAT: Thayer’s Witchhazel

WHY: Witch hazel is a multi-purpose remedy that can help with a wide variety of conditions. It is often recommended for spot treating acne, soothing dry skin or itching, and removing makeup. I use this interchangeably with Bioderma remover to finish off my makeup removal process.

STEP 4:

WHAT: Madina Light Source Serum-In-Spray

WHY: Serums are really always supposed to go on before moisturizer. I’ve tried so many in the past (Lancome, Dior) but never really LOVED any, maybe because I didn’t stick with it as I should. Thanks to the combination of a “second skin” polymer and active ingredients for antioxidant and moisturizing activity, it helps to protect the skin from free radicals and quickly restores the skin’s water balance. It also hyaluronic acid in it as well.

STEP 5:

WHAT: Bioderma Hydrabio Gel Creme 

WHY: Hypoallergenic, Non-comedogenic, Paraben-free. This moisturizer gives great moisture, it contains apple seed extract stimulates the activity of Aquaporins, which are the natural channels allowing water flow within the skin. Vitamin E helps to protect the skin against oxidative stress and combat premature aging.

STEP 6:

WHAT: MAC Fast Response Eye Cream

WHY: This has been a long time fav of mine that I use on myself and in my kit. This product has caffeine so it helps with puffiness under the eyes, also helps with fine lines and wrinkles.

STEP 7:

WHAT: Aquaphor

WHY: This can be used for everything under the sun. It’s recommended for dry, cracked skin, chapped lips, cracked cuticles and dry feet and heels. I use this as a lip balm.
