So as a substitute of stressing about how oily my pores and skin is, blotting and reapplying pressed powder 20-times an afternoon, as a substitute, I’ll attempt to suppose, ‘How can I deal with this pimple in a wholesome method?”
In the mornings I cleanse with Sanitas Sensitive Skin Cleanser, tone with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence—I think like this product offers me a blank slate, whether or not I’m striking on make-up afterwards or my heavy moisturizers within the night time—and moisturize with Revision Hydrating Serum.
