I’m stressed. Very very stressed. Wedding? Two weeks away? Check list of things to-do? About 11 pages long. Complications and issues arising? Constantly! While I’ve been trying to take a breather and step away from my computer as frequently as possible to quell the anxiety and mounting tension that can arise from things going awry at this point in the game, my skin has begun to take a beating from the stress. Trying to stay hyrdated helps, but also using some amazing products boosts the effects.
I certainly need to have wedding-perfect skin, so the items above have been coming to my rescue. Clinique is such an awesome go-to for me in a variety of categories, and lately I’ve been digging the Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus All-Smooth Makeup SPF 15 offers great, build-able foundation coverage, smooths away lines, and is perfect for dry skin, which tends to happen when under stress. The Clinique Even Better Concealer is a great creamy formula that brightens where I need it most, while concealing unwanted blemishes.
During my incredible facial last month at VMV (more to come on that later), my dry lips were satiated with the Grandma Minnie’s The Big Boo Boo Balm, which, although yes, it is for children, it also is divine for those of us that have sensitive skin or issues such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, general wounds, cuts, and more. It is coconut-oil derived, so you KNOW it’s gonna be good! I also had a gentle infusion of moisture put back into my skin thanks to the Hydra Balance Smart Moisturizer SPF 15 for Combination Skin since I can be dry in most areas, but break out in others (mainly my chin).
Now that I’ve got my skin in better check, I can focus on all of the work at hand!
How have you maintained your skin (and sanity) in stressful times?
