this and that   //   August 29, 2012


I’m not sure I’ve ever done a post on my own beauty routine before, but I’m so in love with this product that today’s the day I’m changing that. First of all, here’s what you need to know: I have the world’s most sensitive skin. Seriously. The majority of the products I’ve tried on my face have caused breakouts and/or allergic reactions. (I’m even allergic to Neosporin. Just to put this into perspective for you!) In addition to all of that, I have a mild case of rosacea that pops up every now and then. In order to keep my skin happy (and redness/bump free), I stick to a regimen of super simple products: Purpose cleanser, Squalene oil as a moisturizer, a teeny-tiny dab of Retin-A (for the redness), and a daily sunscreen. The sunscreen was the most difficult product to nail down. Every single facial sunscreen I tried seemed to cause breakouts – not to mention felt heavy on skin. My dermatologist recommended EltaMD UV Clear, and, although I was wary to try anything new, I decided to give it a shot. It’s a miracle product. If a sunscreen can change your life then EltaMD did that for me. It’s incredibly light and feels so good on my skin (I actually look forward to putting it on every morning). It calms my skin and it has never caused a breakout – not once! And, of course, it keeps my skin protected from the sun. If you have sensitive skin and you’re looking for a good SPF, I highly recommend this!

I realize this post might sound like a commercial for EltaMD and that it might not be for everyone; but this blog is about letting you all in on the things I love and this certainly qualifies!
