After a lifetime of having oily skin, treating it as oily skin, purchasing products geared towards oily skin, my skin now decides to identify as “dry” and me completely unprepared.
Desperate for even my oily skin back (fine lines really really pop on dry skin!), I embarked on a journey to find something to cure my flaky, dry skin. After trial and error, these are the products that finally returned my skin back to normal:
Tatcha Pure One-Step Camellia Cleansing Oil I always feared cleansing oil, especially when my skin was on the oiler side. But this cleansing oil is suitable for all skin types, as Camellia oil doesn’t clog pores and rinses easily away with water. It leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.
Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer for Blemish Prone Skin Unfortunately, in addition to dry skin, I also have hormonal breakouts. This triple-threat day time moisturizer does it all. It moisturizes my skin, but it also helps fight off any blemishes I have and it has an SPF 35.
Murray Essential-C Day Moisture When my skin looks dull and I want to focus on a bright, glowing complexion, this is my go to day cream. It protects with an SPF 30, but is also packed with antioxidants to protect from environmental stresses.
Tammy Fender Antioxidant Crème Neroli & Orange I absolutely love this rich moisturizing creme. I use it mostly at night and wake up to soft, plump, glowing skin.
Embroylisse Lait‐Crème Concentré It’s a cult favorite behind the scenes with celebrity makeup artists and models. It’s a fantastic moisturizer that also works as a great primer, and even makeup remover.
