Let's talk about one of my favorite topics in the Winter, Spring, Fall... you get it: dry skin. I have ridiculously dry skin. We are talking Sahara here. In my years of searching for the ways to end the itchy, flakey, redness that is my face, I have come up with a handful of routines which get the job done for me. I am sharing my current routine right now, and it is working! My skin hasn't been this well moisturized in a LONG time (think July in 100 percent humidity.)
Lindi Face Wash - This face wash is quite possibly the most gentle, moisturizing face wash I have ever used. It is supposed to help achieve an optimal pH balance, and is made for sensitive, dry skin. I use this usually once a day, before bed. In the morning, I just splash cold water on my face unless I did a lot of cardio.
Lindi Skin Face Serum - This is quite possibly the richest serum I have ever used. I use this after the face wash when my skin is still a little bit damp and it just soaks it up. If I am doing this in the morning and am going to wear foundation, I just use a tiny bit of moisturizing primer on top of it. If your skin isn't severely dry, this could pass as a fabulous lightweight moisturizer. This serum is made with vitamins, botanicals and antioxidants, all things I need to help fight time!
Lindi Skin Eye Hydrator- I use this in the morning, and an anti-aging one at night. This is amazing before undereye concealer. It's softening and moisturizing and creates the perfect base for any concealer. This eye hydrator also drastically reduces my puffy eyes. Even with my humidifier running all night, I often wake up looking like I was punched in the eyes. I put this on even before I go to the gym, just so I don't give the rest of the people there a good scare ;)
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil- After Amanda got me hooked on this, I can't stop raving about it. I use this as a moisturizer and it blows my old La Mer out of the water. It's natural, organic, and a tiny bit goes a LONG way. Plus, it doesn't cost a fortune! Other uses include, body moisturizer for me and kids, dog food, cooking, etc. etc.
So, my big trick is not over-washing my face. I try to stick to the Lindi Face Wash once a day, in the evening, and the rest of the routine twice a day. A humidifier all night also helps, plus drinking tons of water. I can't say enough good thinks about Lindi Skin Care.
