Combination, SensitiveSkin Concern
: Sensitivities. My skin reacts quite easily so anything to help calm and soothe is always a winner. That and keeping oiliness at bay although years of green beauty and understanding what ingredients to avoid has helped tremendously. Fave Skincare Product:
Leahlani’s Mermaid mask! I can’t live without this in my ritual as it helps maintain happy skin. Not a skincare product per se but I’ve realized how important a tool a facial massager is and I especially love the rose quartz one featured in last December’s AO box. I use it every evening after cleansing and having applied my serum/oil and the boost of circulation it gives makes a marked difference in how my skin and face looks the following morning. More even, calm and toned as it helps with lymphatic drainage and gets rid of stagnant toxins that accumulate. I definitely notice when I haven’t incorporated this step into my nightly routine.Fave Selfcare Ritual:
Masking! It helps me unwind and stay present in the moment.
