Everyone’s got health and wellness on the brain… we’re working on our fitness + food, but let’s not forget to take time to get our skin spring and summer ready!! Anyone out there have majorly sensitive skin like me???
I’ll be honest, it’s been a long-time battle… from breakouts to sunburns and everything in between, I’ve tried it all, searching high and low to find products that work well, keep my skin hydrated and moisturized AND don’t break me out, but I FINALLY found a few go-to goodies:
With help from @AveenoUS found their line of Ultra-Calming products – the Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, Ultra-Calming Hydrating Gel Cleanser and Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream — and I am in love. It’s gentle enough to use each and every day and even better is that it’s a staple I can find on my next shopping trip down the aisles at Walgreens!
As an adult, my skin changed and even more so once I had children… the dark spots got bigger and the redness took over – AKA I have been in major need of help! I routinely head to my favorite skin doctor to make sure I am doing my part, but I love how the @AveenoUS Ultra-Calming line helps to diminish my skin’s redness.
I’ve been testing out the three products I mentioned above and here’s a little more info about each of them:
Nourishing Night Cream – works through the night to help manage my overly sensitive skin… I’ve been waking up in the morning with noticeably more hydrated skin and the redness has definitely diminished!
Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – Mineral sunscreen that doesn’t leave an oily feel on my face AND works on my sensitive skin… smells great and I feel really good knowing I am protecting my face day in and day out with this formula. Its exclusive ingredients, both calming feverfew and nourishing oat, and effective for reducing my skin’s irritations, too. Even better, it won’t clog my pores!
Hydrating Gentle Cleanser – The best thing you can do for your skin is to keep it clean, and I’ve been using this in the morning AND at night for the past week… it gently cleanses without compromising the moisture I need for my skin and gets the dirt and oil gone.
As with all @AveenoUS products, they are fragrance AND soap free, hypoallergenic as well as dermatologist-tested so you know you’re getting products with proven results.
