There’s no worse feeling than not feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin. Whether you’re bare-faced, cake faced, or somewhere in between, your skin is the base of it all and deserves proper care to the max. Here are some products to help you look and feel as best as possible based on your specific problem areas.
Redness & Discoloration
If you struggle with redness and random patches of discoloration in your skin, Dr. Jart’s Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment is your new best friend. After moisturizing, applying this treatment, that appears green and then neutralizes to a natural beige color, will help your skin look monochromatic and leave a hydrating dewey texture. It can also be used as a primer for makeup, or help you complete a bare look as well! Accommodating to any skin type, the product retails for $18 for a 1.7 fl. oz and $52 for 50 mL.
If you struggle with dryness and skin peeling, oils and moisturizers are going to save your life. After a face serum, apply Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for ultimate 24 hour moisture. Its incredibly thick yet lightweight texture is known to deeply hydrate, protect, and help prevent water loss from skin. Working to repair and protect the skin’s moisture barrier, this product gives immediate results leaving skin ultra smooth and healthy. There are 3 available sizes for purchase including a mini 0.95 oz which costs $18, a standard 1.7 oz size that costs $30, and a 4.2 oz for $50.
If you are more on the oily side of skin types, definitely go for oil-free products and stay away from anything hydrating like serums and balms. Before applying makeup, you want to use something that specializes in mattifying the skin. Avoid packing on powder and going through oil-absorbing wipes by the pack daily, and use Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This will leave your skin super soft and glowy. Developed by dermatologists, Clinique is a trusted brand and full of great oil-free products like this one. It comes in four sizes, 0.5 oz ($5), 1.7 oz ($15), 4.2 oz ($28), and 6.7 oz ($39).
Pores can easily be covered in a certain amount of ways. Using pore strips and face masks can help reduce the size of pores, but for a quick coverup, primer is the best way to go. Benefit’s Porefessional Primer targets the appearance of pores and fine lines to appear smoother and leave a “blurred” effect. It comes in a neutral color which can be applied after moisturizing, and is sold in a variety of sizes. Their mini size at 0.25 oz retails for $13, the standard 0.75 oz retails for $32, and the value size for 1.5 oz retails for $54.
