The Skincare Products I’m Loving Right Now.
Every season I change up my skincare products to help my skin transition from hot to cold, and from cold to hot.
It’s been a while since I shared a beauty post. So, I thought I would share with you, why skincare is so important, and what skincare products I am loving right now.
Summer is nearly over in Australia, and it’s been a weird season. From a week of over 30 temps, to a week of under 25 temps, before bouncing back to high 30s, it’s been challenging to both physically and mentally balance between the irrational change.
Which is especially relevant when you are trying to maintain balance with your skin as well. As it’s statistically known when skin is not balances, it will either break out be too dry, to be too oily.
With insane temperatures shifting between 30 and low 20s, and often within the same day, my skin is the first to feel the effects of a crazy season.
This means, I am always changing the skincare products I use, to accommodate for the temperature changes, and to help keep my the beauty produskin nourished, hydrated and protected against both hot and cold weather.
Skincare is such an important part of our daily routine, and from a young age, I have always obsessed about my skincare.
Our skin is constantly being exposed to external factors like pollution, UV rays, and harsh weather conditions, which can damage the skin and cause various skin problems like acne, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
It’s important to note, skincare is not just important for our physical appearance, but also for our mental and emotional well-being as well.
Taking care of our skin helps boost our confidence and self-esteem, which can have a positive impact on our overall mental health.
When it comes to skincare, it’s important to understand everyone’s skin is unique and requires a different approach.
Different skin types have different needs. Using specifically formulated products for your skin type and your skin concerns and needs means you can help skin be at its best.
For example, if you have oily skin, you should use products designed to help control oil production and prevent breakouts. If you have dry skin, you should be using products which provide hydration and moisture.
My skincare type is textbook combination, which means I have an oily t-zone and the outer regions can get dry – especially during that very special time of the month. Which seems to make those dry spot dryer and that t-zone even oilier.
If you can relate, the skincare products I am loving right now, may just be exactly what you need also. Check them out below:
