This week, the Lipstick League wants to know: What’s your biggest skincare issue, and what product(s) do you use to help with that issue?
Where my complexion is concerned, it's dehydration, dehydration, dehydration. When my skin's super-thirsty, it goes red, gets flaky in patches, and sensitivity ratchets up. To survive winter, I need thermal water, essence, hyaluronic acid serum, and super hydrating moisturizer, with an emphasis on the water content, not the emollients.
I'm dealing with major dry skin on my arms and legs. If I'm not careful, they get so itchy that I break skin if I let myself scratch. But I'm finding relief with my fave Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer as an end-of-shower base, plus a layer of either Bioderma or Jergens Ultra Care body lotion if my skin needs extra help later in the day (it often does in winter).
