Skincare That Transformed My Dry Skin Overnight...

Friday, 17 June 2016

Today's post is just going to be a quick one. I'm still learning about skincare so I am not confident in giving you a lot of explanation and information regarding skincare, but the combination of these two products really helped my skin when it desperately needed help. 

Traveling always escalates my skin problems or even creates new ones, so when I came back from Barcelona, my skin was really dry, flaky, dull, it had uneven textures, and it feels 'stuffy', it felt like there was a ton of gunk I needed to deep cleanse and get rid of (probably from wearing makeup everyday from 9 am until 10 pm, oops). It may have also been worsen by over exfoliation I did while I was in Barcelona.

When I came home, I knew I would need a good mask because when you want immediate noticeable results that's what you go for. I picked this Nuxe Aroma-Perfection Unclogging Thermo Active Mask when I was in Paris, sadly I've looked everywhere and Nuxe Indonesia does not stock this here, let's hope they do soon because it's hot fire (no pun intended). It's not the first time that I use this mask so I knew it would work. This mask has a warming effect for the first 2 minutes after you put it on, but it's nothing uncomfortable, it just shows you that it is working. I chose this mask instead of the others I have because it has exfoliating beads that are not harsh on your skin but still effective. I needed physical exfoliation because my skin was super flaky and I badly needed to get rid of the dead skin cells off my skin as soon as possible but I also don't want to over exfoliate, so this is the only product I used to exfoliate that night, everything else was either nourishing or moisturizing product. The instruction said to leave it only for 2-3 minutes, NO WAY is my response to that, I usually leave it on for at least 15-20 minutes to get the most out of the mask. This time I left it on for 25-30 minutes. The first time I used it I left it on for 5 minutes and it felt like all I did was waste product. I would definitely suggest leaving it on for more than 2-3 minutes. If you want to try it out you can always look for an online shop that sells Nuxe products, there are a lot of them on Instagram.

After wearing this mask, my skin felt a lot more clarified, clean, and brightened. My pores were a little tighter and most of the gross bit was gone. I then continue with my toner, serum, and everything else before I sealed it all in with my Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil which is fortunately available on Benscrub (collective YAAAY). Rosehip oil has been all the rage this past year, and it's for good reasons. I used this because it's currently the most potent hydrating product--and mainly for its plumping, hydrating properties for this time around-- I have in my collection that I figured would work great on top of my newly exfoliated skin. It's potent enough that I can't use it everyday, I use it probably 3 times a week. Rosehip oil also helps with acne scarring (which would help with the dullness in my skin), and also ageing skin. Don't mind the scent of rosehip oil though, it goes away after you put it on. It's definitely not an oil you reach out for if you want a calming effect or relaxation. I dropped a few drops onto the palm of my hand, sprayed a little bit of Evian spray (as Kae suggested) and then pressed it to my face and make sure that it's not just sitting on top of my skin. Update: since this post was posted, Trilogy has contacted me and shared about things we need to know about Rosehip oil.

I woke up the next morning with a noticeable difference, my skin was noticeably more even in texture and in tone, also it looked more hydrated and more plumped. I gave these two products all the credits!

I hope that this post helps you on a day when you need an extra punch in your skincare routine.

Much love,
