Today I’m sharing the products I use for my skincare routine.
My skin has changed over the years. As a teen in was oily (thanks hormones!), to dry in my 20’s, to super sensitive in my 30’s. While I’ve always had skin that was on the sensitive side, it’s become more so the last few years. I’ve had to pare down the skincare products and makeup that I use. Having to deal with red and irritated skin, doctor appointments, and prescription medications isn’t fun. As always, if you’re really struggling with your sensitive skin, my first suggestion would be to talk to your doctor. They can give you advice for your specific situation.
It’s been a lot of trial and error and suggestions from my doctor to get a skincare routine that worked for my sensitive skin. I thought I would share what’s worked for me because getting to this point involved a lot of frustration. Trying new products and hoping that they wouldn’t cause a reaction was a tough journey. If someone can get some ideas of products that may work for them I’m a happy blogger!
CeraVe is a brand that my doctor recommended to me when I first started dealing with my skin becoming more sensitive. Parts of my face were red and irritated and she said that she’d had good luck with CeraVe. I’m very grateful that it’s also worked for me. This CeraVe cleanser (affiliate link) gets everything off my face at the end of the day while still being gentle on my skin. It comes in a pump bottle which is my favorite for cleansers. It’s also a fairly large container so it’s nice to get a lot every time I buy a new one.
Garnier Micellar Water
I’ve been using the Garnier Micellar Water (affiliate link) for awhile now and I love it as much now as I did when I first started using it. It’s light enough that I can use it every day but is still tough enough to get off anything that I may have missed with my cleanser.
CeraVe Eye Cream
I was specifically struggling with the sensitive skin on my eyelids when I first went to the doctor to talk about how to fix it. Along with the cleanser, she also thought that the eye cream (affiliate link) would be something else that could work for my skin. I’m so glad that that she suggested it to me. I’ve tried lots of other eye creams that just didn’t agree with my skin and caused reactions.
There’s a fine line when it comes to moisturizer. I want something that is moisturizing (especially during the dry winter months) while also doesn’t cause me to breakout. The skin around my lips and chin tend to get particularly dry at this time of year, but this Neutrogena moisturizer (affiliate link) helps to keep it in check, while still keeping my skin clear.
