Taking care of my skin has been very important to me as I live with eczema. I have always been self-conscious about my skin especially the common areas where my eczema would occur, such as my underarms, my arms, my knees, and my neck. Living with eczema is no fun and often times I try to hide it as much as I can. Although I have been prescribed medical creams for my skin, I will always live with eczema. As such, I decided to share with you my daytime skin care routine.
Before I begin, I would like to place a disclaimer that I am not a dermatologist or any type of skin care specialist. This is my skin care routine that I do on a regular basis and the products that I use are used by my own preferences as well as prescribed by my dermatologist. Please consult with your dermatologist to see what products are recommended for your skin. Every skin is different and not every product is geared towards all skin types.
DAYTIME SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Step 1: I start my day, using the Philosophy: Purity Made Simple Cleanser. Since I have uneven skin tone and extremely dry skin, Purity Made Simple is my go-to facial cleanser. It tones and lightly hydrates my skin, making my skin feel perfectly clean and balanced. It also helps deep clean my pores while the natural oil extracts in the cleanser itself help condition my skin. The cleanser also works as a make-up remover!
Step 2: After cleansing, I dry my face and spray the Pure Nurture™ Facial Water by OLE HENRIKSEN. Normally, I would apply a toner but I love using the Pure Nurture Facial Water. The facial water has helped soothe my skin as well as hydrate my complexion. Since it is made with provitamin B5 and a nutrient-rich botanical blend of cucumber and chamomile extracts, it has helped give my skin a healthy glow.
Step 3: Once the facial water absorbs, I like to apply the Truth Serum® by OLE HENRIKSEN. The Truth Serum is like a daily multivitamin for my skin. Enriched with orange and green tea extracts, the fast-absorbing, oil-free formula revives my complexion. I also love to apply it because of its citrus scent!
Step 4: The last and final step of my daytime skin care routine is moisturizing! I LOVE the Nurture Me™ Moisturizing Crème by OLE HENRIKSEN! The moisturizer is a rich, nourishing, and hydrating crème that always softens and comforts my skin. My skin always feels cushiony soft and supple. The moisturizer is a multivitamin blend of vitamins A, B5, C, and E, as well as sunflower and rosehip fruit oils, which helps reduces visible redness, conditions skin, and soothes with lasting moisture.
