I have sensitive skin and most of the products I use are derived from natural ingredients. If my skin feels like it needs some serious moisture (e.g in this weather change we’re currently having!) I sometimes will use a hemp oil (or even olive) as a thick sleep in mask. The less ingredients the better for me. However as a self confessed skin care addict, I love trying out new products.. here’s my current essentials:
La Roche Posay
I love this brand for it’s sensitive skin care, I think this is my fourth tube of Effaclar Duo – I use it as my day moisturiser and apply before my make up routine…it’s also spf 30 (bonus!).
Sand and Sky
I loveeee a weekly face mask, most the masks I go for are hydrating, because I get a little nervous of using anything detoxifying in fears that may be too harsh. However, I was gifted Sand and Sky’s Brilliant Skin detoxifying mask a few months ago and I am in love! It leaves my skin feeling wonderfully cleansed and clean, without feeling over worked. It’s also a dream to take off and hardly leaves behind any residue.
I started my whitening treatment from Bury Dental this month and they weren’t kidding when they said the results would be fast. They moulded my teeth to create a tray that fits my teeth perfectly, in which you add a little amount of the whitening gel and sleep in it over night. SO easy, it doesn’t add any time into my routine as it’s over night and in the first couple days I had already noticed a huge difference. I will say, though, ouuuuchh it makes my teeth sensitive! Great tip from my dentist is to leave the residue from using sensitive toothpaste on your teeth and wear the tray for a few minuets to let the sensitive toothpaste do it’s job.
As we’re cranking up the heating in our homes and approaching this cold, dry weather I’d love to hear your recommendations for face masks/treatments!
