I’m a total FREAK about skincare. I’ve been washing my face and moisturizing with SPF ritually since I was a child and I have my mother to thank for that. I also have my mother to thank for decent skin and tight pores – AMEN .
HOWEVER, besides the help of genetics and a good skincare regimen both day and night, I firmly believe that your makeup products can really MAKE or BREAK your skin. When I used to wear heavy makeup for a short period in high school, my skin went HAYWIRE – I broke out on every inch of my face – I’m cringing writing about it.
I had acne literally everywhere, and some faint scars to prove it. I’ve always had sensitive skin, so WHY no one stopped me, IDK.
NOW, post-college, if I do wear makeup, I stick to MINIMAL makeup and clean products that are also cruelty-free. These products below do WONDERS for the skin that enhance your natural features and glow. They’re all light-weight and perfect for the girl who loves a minimal look.
