So if you follow my Instagram (which you should) then you know I’ve been struggling with my skin for the past few months. I definitely have combination skin for most of the year (dry on my cheeks, but a little oily in my T-Zone). I would consider myself lucky because I never had a problem with acne other than blackheads and large pores on my nose and I never had any big skin problems per se. But that ALL changed when I moved into my new apartment!!
I have baseboard heat that I can’t control and they like to keep it BLASTING all day all night. Let’s just say not only do I sleep with the window open every night (even when the temperatures hit below zero), but I also have to keep my ceiling fan on to circulate the air. The change in living conditions and the constant dry, hot air has seriously taken a toll on my skin. I got a facial about 2 months ago and while it was great, it only seemed to hydrate my skin for a brief period of time before it when back to being super dry.
While I haven’t found the perfect solution skincare wise for my skin yet, I have found three things that saved my dry skin! This foundation and concealer is one of the best I’ve ever tried and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and looking glowy. This Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer has medium coverage, but it super lightweight and my skin feels like it can breath while wearing it.
When I went into Sephora to pick out a new foundation everyone was super helpful and as I was checking out since I spent over $75 they asked if I’d like to book a Perk Facial that is complimentary with a $75 purchase! Obviously I jumped at the chance considering the state of my skin and I’m SO glad I did! They were able to fit me in while I was still in the mall, but if you know you’re headed to Sephora and plan on spending more than $75 on your visit you can actually book a service ahead of time! I got the Revitalizing Facial Powered by Perk and it was legit the best thing ever! It exfoliated and hydrated my skin while infusing it with antioxidants and my skin looked so good after!
Head over to my Instagram profile and watch by Beauty Highlight to hear me talk a little more about my Sephora Perk Facial and both of these Nars products! And in case you missed it check out last month’s beauty round up featuring my Five of my Favorite Beauty Tools.
