My skin has NOT been my friend lately, and its been really, really annoying! I have a terrible track record with my skin- in high school it was the worst out of anyone I knew, then it got better, and lately its just been a roller coaster of sorts, sometimes being nice, other times being a real pain. This past spring, it was the clearest it had probably ever been, and that just makes the fact that it’s being difficult now a lot more irritating.
When my skin breaks out, a lot of the time the breakout area will become really dry, flaky, and red when its supposedly healing. Since texture is a LOT harder to cover up than discoloration, this becomes an issue for me, especially when I’m supposed to be filming High-Quality videos that are zoomed in on my skin! Having a calming, yet lightweight moisturizer is key to getting my skin as smooth as I can while still wearing makeup that looks as flawless as it can.
Proactiv’s Green Tea Moisturizer is my favorite soothing, calming moisturizer for when my skin is flaky and itchy. It’s really lightweight, which is perfect for wearing under makeup because it sinks in to the skin fast and won’t make your makeup slide around on your skin, and it really helps to calm down redness. I still use a heavier moisturizer at night to help the dryness really go away, but for daytime this is a great soother for troubled skin!
Available for $35 from Proactiv.
