I am learning (slowly) touse less of certain products. And the weather! My skin was absorbing WAY more Blush Beauty Oiluntil it warmed up here (70’s ish) & now I’ve cut down on the amount of oils. Patience - something I need more - is required in figuring out what to use where & how much.
Changes I’ve seen
Weird & annoying rashy areas on eyelids and upper cheeks are much better. I used products Adeline recommended for this (such as Calm Cream, Hydra, Winter Is Coming) & also resorted to OTC Cortisone cream for a couple days. Allergy season presents new challenges, darn it! After Sun is a great light moisturizer for T zone - started that because I suddenly got a little oilier there & a couple tiny breakouts; the Donkey Milk Gel Sleeping Pack has already healed those either overnight or by 2nd morning of use.
I’ve added Lift on neck & jaw area in AM’s. On my cranky sensitive eyelids with a rash, I am trying Hydra instead of After Sun, and Winter Is Coming if they are dry/flaky. Vacuum Cleanser Cleansing Oil to T-zone only when using (about 2-3 times a week). I am spot treating areas as my skin changes - even using a Q-tip to apply to brow bone dark spot.
I’ve learned to use less of the products as a general rule - since they have higher active ingredient amounts you don’t need as much to see results. The weather is going to be a major influence on what & how much I use, too. I’ve also learned to NOT GIVE UP if there is a problem area(s) - you can post in the SB Facebook group to get help & advice on solutions to stubborn problems. I’ve been thinking about how anyone working full-time would need to streamline the AM routine - I have more time some AM’s when I don’t have to be somewhere. I’d probably skip spot treating, doing that at night more. The fact that we reviewers have to record everything does take longer, too.
