Skincare Tip o’ the week

July 5, 2011 at 12:52 pm Leave a comment

We have FINALLY gotten some warm weather here on the Avalon penninsula. Holy cow what a month June was! (Weather wise at least… ) It was raining almost every day, hardly a day with double digits (celsius) and we had 3 weeks of fog! Anyway, I digress… we have had a couple of nice days and with the warm weather I find that I need to tweak my skincare routin a little bit.

I have mixed skin, normal on cheeks and a tendency to be oily in the t-zone, and when the weather gets warmer my skin gets oilier. If you have a similar problem, here are two things you can try!

1. Blend your Cleansing Milk with Cucumber & Chamomile powdered face mask, OR use only the mask as your cleanser. I apply it and leave it on while brushing my teeth, that’s enough. The clay gently draws out any impurities and extra oil, without stripping your skin, and the cucumber is nice and cool on your skin.

2. “Borrow” your man’s cleanser, Tval for Men Face Wash with peppermint and tea tree. The essential oils in this gentle foaming cleanser is so refreshing on a hot summer night. This cleanser is foaming, but it’s gentle enough to for all skin types.

You can find the products mentioned in this post here, in one convenient location.
