My skin is mostly oily dehydrated with some hormonal acne and the occasional sensitivity. I use active serums like retinol and AHA/BHA in my night routine and layer them with simple soothing skincare products.
These are my favorites products for soothing my skin:
Peach and Lily Glass Skin serum so popular, the website has a hard time keeping it in stock. I love it because it is a soothing and hydrating toner that immediately calms my skin down. I always use this as a first step after an exfoliating toner or vitamin C serum.
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra serum and Drunk Elephant Antioxidant Marula Oil - I mix these two together (one pump of B-Hydra and one drop of Marula) on nights when I use active serums like Shani Darden Resurface Serum or Farmacy Honeymoon Glow. There is something about B-Hyra that I ave never experienced with any other skincare. On it’s own it is hydrating, cooling and soothing. Mixed with the Marula oil, the concoction feels luxurious and leaves an amazing glow.
A’pieu Madecassoside Cica Gel is a nice soothing gel balm that strengthens and protective the skin barrier. I like to add this on any spots. Sometimes I lather a thick layer as a last step at night as a sleeping mask.
