2 Products I Swear By For Managing My Dry and Sensitive Skin

dry and sensitive skin

I was not blessed with perfect skin. Since I was very young, I’ve always struggled with dry and sensitive skin. Mostly, the affected part was only on my arms and legs. When puberty hit though, I noticed that my face becomes dry as well. I cannot use a powder without having dry patches on my face. So most of the time, I go out not wearing any makeup, not even a light powder. Good thing it didn’t bother me back then as a teenager because I didn’t care what people think about my face. The only positive thing about it is not having to worry about acne like most teenagers do.

I’m in my 20’s now and my sensitive skin is taking a toll on me especially now that I use makeup. I also think I developed a type of dermatitis where some parts of the skin are flaking and it turns red. Well, I have that on my forehead and my nose now. It sucks. Good thing there are tons of skin care products now to moisturize the skin and there are 2 that I absolutely love and it has improved my skin.

Klairs’ Rich Moist Soothing Serum is what I apply every night. A pump goes a long way. The formula is not too thick, not too runny. I get moisturized without feeling sticky or oily. What I love most about this is I feel so fresh right after I put it on. After using micellar water to remove my makeup, I use this. I always wake up with soft and moisturized skin. You can get this product on Wishtrend along with other great skin care and makeup products.

Caudalíe Grape Water Face Mist- Freshness is just a spray away with this product. Aside from using it whenever I want to freshen up, it also works great as a makeup setting spray for extra hydration. No need to blot, I just leave it on my skin and let it air dry. It doesn’t take a while. I also love how it soothes my skin and it’s tailored especially for sensitive skin.  Store it in the fridge for extra coolness. I bought this at Zalora maybe a month ago. Use the code ZBAP104 to get a discount. 

Having dry skin is not curable but somehow these products soothes and alleviates the symptoms. I’ve had days where my skin is extra dry and I need something thicker like the Egyptian Magic Cream (Click here to see my skincare routine which I need to update). At least for now, my skin is moisturized. Thanks to these two!

    So this is the shot that you took from a restaurant. Haha. Anyway, been wanting to try that serum din and their Vitamin C pero medyo pricey lang talaga for me. The only product I have from Klairs is yung toner nila which I really love. Ma try nga sa susunod. Haha

    I used to have dry patches ALL over my face too – especially my cheeks and nose area! Even just using baby powder makes it even worse huhu. But now that I’m using moisturizers + face masks, it went away in an instant! Yay!
