I'm typically prone to having very dry skin, but since moving I've been breakout prone, oily and dry all at once. Lemme tell you, that's a winning combination--for my dermatologist. He suggested that although I was working in the city, being here full time didn't do me any favors.
So now I'm a bit obsessed with taking very gentle, loving care of my skin. I make a real effort to avoid chemicals and use fewer products than I used to on most days. (despite my very full looking medicine cabinet).
Then, Brilliant Brunette conditioner to keep my colored hair from getting brassy.
Of course, Dr. Bronner's has been my go-to for years. I'll probably never use anything else. Right now I'm using lavender which is my favorite scent, though rose comes in a close second.Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. I really hope nothing awful turns up about it because its the most amazing wash I've ever used. My skin is so clean and soft after I use it and the ingredient list is much shorter than Cetaphil's.
I use Korres 24 Hour Brightening Cream everyday after a recommendation from a friend. It does exactly what the description says it does by balancing moisture and making my skin look less dull. The best part is that I only need to use the tiniest amount and its enough.
Clinique Turnaround has been in my makeup bag since high school and I will likely never stop using it because it heals up any dry patches or spots overnight which makes it magic in my book. Plus, one tub can last me almost an entire year!
I also have a nice strong, non-comedogenic sunscreen from La Roche-Posay that only comes out in the summer or days that I'll be in the sun for a long time. Thank goodness I don't need a lot of this because it is crazy expensive here but I picked this up the last time I was in Paris and it happened to be on sale.
*Edited to add about Cetaphil: I couldn't figure out why my skin was SO dry even though I hadn't changed anything, but no matter what I did by the end of the day I had a full face of grease. Then I read this article and took a guess that it was that Cetaphil was actually drying my face out with all those suds. Read more here.
