My skin is dry as a Sahara desert right now - it feels like I have a constant "mud mask" on that's drying out...
|my little skin quenchers|
I've been spraying my face with these facial mists - constantly - but I still feeling very very dry...
But I've gone through this before. My skin is such a pain in the winter. I just have to be patient and do the things I've been doing. I'm not going to panic - nope - stay cool~~~ and do what's I've been doing::
1) Keep indoor plants for humidity
And don't forget to water them! (remind myself)
2) Turn on the "humidifier" - all day
This giant air purifier has a humidifier mode that we turn on when the humidity gets below 50%.
We try to keep it around 50~60%. It works super hard nowadays bc without it, the humidity in our home is usually around 30%. Why all the fuss? Well - it's good for the skin :) Keeping humidity high also gets the room temperature warmer - savings on those heating bills ;)
3) Use my "emergency cream"
I have a stash of La Mer I put away for emergencies - only emergencies & for travel. These are medicine for my skin. It's not cheap - but they're worth it! (I'm frugal but I weigh in the value ;)
For an alternative - everyday cream - I use Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream. No other "wannabe product" gets close to these two products.
Tips on La Mer:
Some complain about the "heavy"ness of the cream - but it's rich for a purpose - to nourish the skin. I use them when my skin goes off balance and it always does its job. Use a small amount* A little goes a long way.
