Most of us think we know our skin pretty well, after all it’s been with us since day one so we’re kind of the expert on the case. Though true, we could still be missing some S.O.S. signals that our skin is trying to send us. Dryness, blemishes, oil zones–all of these annoying occurrences translate into a language of our skin asking for help. We’ve taken the top skin dilemmas and broken them down into solutions. Wave goodbye to problem skin and hello to radiance!
1. Oily Skin
The conundrum of oily skin is that it can still feel dry while being greasy. Instead of analyzing your moisturizer you may want to examine your cleanser. Those with oily skin need a cleanser that will remove makeup and dirt without overdrying or your skin will want to produce more oil. Limit cleansing to only at night and try a product like vbeauté Evidence Eraser™ Gentle Foaming Cleanser by Vbeauté. It contains a foaming gel cleanser that is oil free and safe for sensitive skin. Its unique formula also contains anti-aging ingredients.
2. Dull Skin
Your skin is clear of blemishes and generally behaves but does it just seem tired? It might need boost from better blood circulation. Bright, glowing skin is the result of excellent hydration, a good diet, and daily circulation aka. exercise. We can give our skin a faux form of exercise with the FOREO LUNA™ Mini Facial-Cleansing T-Sonic™ Brush by Luna. Using sonic pulses this device will gently invigorate skin, moving blood and cleansing it at the same time. It’s coned shape allows for us to get into hard to reach spots around our noses, eyes and along the jawline.
3. Enlarged Pores/Blackheads
We grow past puberty but some skin issues just like to keep growing with us! Enlarged pores and blackheads are caused by an excess of oil on top of the skin that blocks the pores opening. Those with oily skin and dry skin alike can still have this problem as oil production is regulated by hormones. The best way to clear pores and blackheads is to do a weekly exfoliation that will clear your pores. The vbeauté Rub Off Gentle Facial Exfoliator byVbeauté does its job with microbeads to clear pores and remove any dead skin that can contribute to the blockage.
4. Dark Circles
Even with a great night’s sleep, some of us see blue or brown circles under our eyes due to our skin’s age and genetics. Certain genes will predispose us to hyperpigmentation or thin skin under our eyes which will reveal the blood underneath more clearly leading to a noticeable mark. As we naturally age the skin under our eyes also loses some ability to regenerate. Casting genes and birthdays aside, we can be proactive to maintain our eyes. The vbeauté Eye Never® Eye Creme by vbeauté will enrich the skin under our eyes with antioxidants, caffeine, and organic extracts to combat these changes.
5. Dry Skin
Winter just ended and if the cold weather didn’t completely zap your skin of moisture the windy weather of spring is sure to try! Those with dry skin need a moisturizer that will give them hydration during the day and night so their dryness is prevented from becoming a true sensitivity. The VINO GOLD 13.5 fl. oz. Day and Night Cream by M. Asam is a multi-use cream that has oil bases of jojoba, primrose, and vitamin E to help replenish skin deeply without being irritating.
