I have always sucked at skincare. I have trouble having a routine and sticking to it long-term. The best I was with this was when I had bad acne as a teenager and nothing worked until I went on accutane, which sort of reinforced my laziness about taking care of my skin since it was a pill to take and that alone changed my skin drastically!
Now that I'm pregannt, I'm finding my skin very very sensitive, and in the past week has been looking TERRIBLE! Patches of red on about 50% of my face, being so dry and flakey, and reacting to any product I tried!
Yesterday I went out to get some advice on what to use and was given samples of La Roche Posay creams. One for major rehydration, one for all-day hydration and one for helping ease irritations. The major rehydrating one is the Nutritic 5% and I put it on twice yesterday and can feel SO MUCH DIFFERENCE in my skin! It's not sandish anymore, just regular dry and kind of smooth! I think just a few days of putting this stuff will work wonders on my skin - I'm seriously impressed! It didn't make my skin react either, although the red is still there.
I was also given a sample of Vichy corrective foundation to try, but my skin is too dry still to try covering - it looked crazy-cakey. But I've seen videos of the stuff and it's magic!
What do you women use on your skin? Are you big on products and skin maintenance? Are you big on make-up? What products do you use and recommend?
