So it comes at rather perfect timing to do my first raven review post. I just got an email from a friend who told me how grateful she was that I shared my skin regimen with her. Not only is her skin softer but the dry flakey skin and redness is already starting to get better after only 3 days of doing what I do.
So for my Freaky Fanatics I am going to let you in on my secret for dry sensitive skin!
As you all already know I am a pale white girl ha ha. Some have even referred to me as looking like a porcelain doll cause of my skin and big eyes. I consider it a compliment but it also means taking care of my skin to keep getting those compliments. Some of you may or may not know that with pale skin often comes sensitive skin. I got that along with mine as well as these fun dry patches that like to make fun random appearances at the wrong times.
Well after many years of trial and error I have found a regimen that seems to be working for me. It also seems to be working for my friend after only 3 days so it might be worth sharing with all of you. You might be pleasantly surprised that these products are also easy to come by and won’t break your bank!
Facial Wash: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
This stuff is great and is by far the best facial cleanser I have ever used. It cleans your face without leaving you with that feeling of someone stretching your skin back like a Cenobite and sucking the life out of what little moisture you have left.
Body Soap: Kiss My Face Olive Oil Soap
I read about this soap a while ago and decided to give it a try. Well I ended up switching to it permantly and ever since I did my body no longer get random skin rashes on my sensitive skin. I even use it to shave. Which means no more harsh chemical soaps and shaving creams for this girl anymore!
Facial Moisturizer/Body Lotion: CeraVe SA Renewing Lotion
I originally purchased this lotion by CeraVe for my body and when I realized the miracle it was doing (to the point my husband told me “wow babe your skin is like extra soft” I thought why not try it on my face. So glad I did and won’t be looking back. I literally wash my face, dry it off and then put a layer of this on. Then I move on to my makeup. Simple, easy and it works! I apply it all over my body after I shower too.
Foundation: Gabriel Organic Dual Powder Foundation
I love this stuff! I went from liquid foundation, concealer and powder to just concealer and this dual powder foundation. I literally wash my face, lotion up, put on some Physician’s Formula Conceal RX concealer (best concealer ever!) and then cover my face in this amazing powder foundation. Of course I do blush, eye makeup and lipstick but for my all over foundation this is my go to! It’s not only organic but it’s also cruelty and gluten free!
