I would love to say that my skin is naturally as dewy as the morning grass. However if you know me and saw me last week you would know that to be extremely false. I am part of the eczema club. I don't just get patches on my body but where I can get proscribed steroid cream. (Which I have done in the past and it works fabulous). I get it on my eyelids.
For the past two weeks my eyes have looked something similar to and old mans hand, soft, dry and very wrinkly. It was alright if you are into that look, but the itching and slight burning was a little much for me to handle.
That lead to the road trip. I am fortunate to have some amazing friends who are willing to drive two hours for a girl in need. In North Dakota it takes me two hours to get to a Sephora. Considering I could still not see at this point (a little dramatic) due to my severe crusting eyes we decided the trip was necessary.
This is when I got introduced to my life saving product. Farmacy Eye Dew. I tried it on at the store and instantly felt some relief. Although I was still very red and dry I could tell this was going to be what helps me get back on track. After I got home from this trip I washed my face and applied this eye cream. When I woke up in the morning I usually had to wait about an hour before I could see due to puffiness. To my pleasant surprise I could see right away and my skin actually felt like skin. During that entire day I kept re applying. I can now proudly say I look like a healthy twenty-five year old again.
I get a lot of questions when I don't have a breakout of eczema how I keep my skin looking so dewy and healthy. These are the products that I use.
Two times a week I like to get rid of all that dead skin that my regular cleanser may leave behind. The Clinique 7 Day Scrub is gritty enough to remove that extra stuff but gentle enough to be used every day if needed.
My everyday go to cleanser is Josie Maran Oil Cleanser. At first I was hesitant on using this product because I thought it would make my skin too oily. However it applies like a dream and leaves my skin feeling comfortable and cleansed.
During the day I like to use a moisturizer that isn't too heavy consistency that way my foundation doesn't move around. The Josie Maran Moisturizing Milk is perfect! It has a thin texture but leaves my skin deeply moisturized. I use this both day and night.
At night time I love to "over do it". I use my moisturizing milk as well as my Josie Maran Argan Oil. I look similar to a sunbather in California. However it all soaks in through the night and I wake up looking healthy and hydrated.
If you are someone who likes to take baths then you must get this Calming Milk Bath. It smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling so comfortable when you get out of the tub.
Last but not least is the Bali Body Oil. This is perfect for day time, I love to apply it to my chest and my arms. It soaks in right away and leaves the skin looking hydrated and sun-kissed.
I understand the dewy look is not for everyone. I personally get very dry skin especially through the winter months and these are the products that help me fight that!
