Today I had my interview and yes I got the internship and I start next week. It's PR firm that focuses on up and coming accessories designers which I think is pretty amazing since it's so hard now a days to break into the business. Anyway it was another extremely hot sticky day in the city and it got me thinking about my skincare routine. I used to be a product junkie always testing new products because I can never find something that really seems to make a difference on my skin. I have what you call sensitive slash oily slash dry skin. Yea you would think if I had oily skin I wouldn't be dry. Nope my skin's weird. However I am lucky enough to have my parents genes because neither one of them suffered from severe acne. But on my bad days I won't break out in multiple blemishes, I get these under the skin ones that are extremely painful. I try so hard not to pick at it but you know how that is, and of course I end up with some scar (they're usually on my chin).
I luckily have an amazing dermatologist who has her own skincare line (which she sells on one of those home shopping networks; she's very close with my mom & so my mom modeled some of her products for her hah.) I've always liked her products but they still have never done the trick. For the past year I've rediscovered good old plain Neutrogena Deep Clean face wash & I swear that's been the best for me. Very gentle and no drying out.
However my number one rule in skincare routine is moisturize moisturize moisturize. And again one of my favorites is this one by Olay. It's not heavy at all which is key for me. Other than that I'm pretty low maintenance when it comes to skincare. I'll only use a toner if I break out.
So what are some of your go-to products? Drugstores or more name brand? Oh and for body I still love using Jergens with self tanner all year round. Even if it doesn't make a difference when I'm so pale I feel if I stop using some self tanner I'll be ten times worse. haha
