Daily care for irritated transitional skin







I have to say, I have a lot less skin barrier issues because I consciously make sure not to consume too many active ingredients.


However, all the mindfulness in the world can't save me from the inevitable wobble from summer to fall or winter to spring. For some reason March is always the worst for me!

So today I’m going to talk about some great ingredients that can help you solve the problem before it actually starts.


Of course, these products are my personal favorites, but I always encourage you to take a look at your own products and find similar ones before you consider buying a new one.

I need to pick up a third tube of The Ordinary's Squalane Cleanser* £13.90 | Full review | And for good reason: I can always rely on its products when my skin is dry or uncooperative.


It's also a great multitasking tool for removing sunscreen and everyday makeup, while also being the perfect hydrating morning cleanser. It works like a creamy balm-gel mixture that gets oilier as you massage it (thanks to

squalane extracted from olives), and emulsifies with water.


This is the gentlest of all gentle cleanses for when your skin can't stand much. For my morning routine I prefer a mist as I like it quick and easy - Curel Deep Hydrating Mist | I really like it £19.50 | Lately.

The spray is light, but it really moisturizes and soothes my skin in a long-lasting way (I can't stand a spray that disappears into the ether!).


The formula contains glycerin, which draws moisture into the skin and increases moisture levels. A form of castor oil that moisturizes and maintains the skin, cholesterol has skin barrier renewing effects, and allantoin soothes

the skin.


At night I have Aveeno Calm & Restore Soothing Oatmeal Toning Lotion* | Very £7.99 | Full review. It has real weight and actually helps buffer your retinol when you use it afterwards. The formula contains glycerin, oatmeal, and

vitamin E to moisturize, soothe, and balance skin.


Venn Probiotics Cica Complex Biome Booster* is a calming and powerful serum* | £153 | Full review. It's not cheap, but if it's within your budget or you're lucky enough to get a redeemable coupon or discount:

I have to admit I really enjoy using it! It's got two benefits: It contains fermented ingredients that boost the skin's microbiome and create a healthy barrier, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that soothe Centella and reduce


redness but it also contains peptides that plump and moisturize the skin. They may also boost collagen production, so this is a gentle anti-aging formula for skin that feels a little reactive.

One of my favorite all-around moisturizers is Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Cream* | £45 | Full review. This is the second time I've had it and I'm reminded of how perfect it is!


The reason this product is so reused is because it has an extremely lightweight yet rich texture; it feels fluffy on the skin and is perfect for makeup but it also intensively nourishes, softens and regenerates my dry skin. The

ceramides, shea butter, fat content, and jojoba oil are a treat when my face needs it!


For an extra boost of nourishment, I like to top off my afternoons with Zelens Power D* | Rounding £95 | Full review | However, you can also apply a few drops before your moisturizer during the day to focus on repairing your barrier.

Again, it's a little pricey, but I already have my backup, so I think that's all you really need to know to see if it's worth it for me and my skin. Vitamin D helps support the skin barrier and this light oil also contains emollients,


cholesterol (a component of the skin barrier), vitamin F (rich in linoleic acid), squalane, fatty acids, vitamin E, and sunflower oil and nourishing oils like avocado oil. It soothes and soothes my skin repairs it when it's unhappy, balances out stronger active ingredients I might want to use, and overall nourishes and softens my skin.

If your skin is in crisis: I recommend REN Evercalm Night Repair Balm* | £45 | Full review. This little oil-based magic pot has incredible healing properties when applied to dry and/or irritated skin. I also often use it on more


sensitive areas like my mouth and nose to lessen the impact of the active ingredients on the rest of my face. The formula contains jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, and beta-glucan, which are excellent moisturizers and soothing

ingredients.
