Recently, in this video, I told you how doing the “caveman skincare regimen” which consists of doing almost nothing to the skin, has been so beneficial for my acne – prone, sensitive, rosacea – prone skin. It’s been something I’ve done on and off for the last few years.
If my skin is very sensitive due to over exfoliating, using cleansers or other irritating products, leaving it completely alone usually does the trick. However, for the rest of the time, I don’t really get away with doing “nothing” to my skin, so I use some products while keeping it simple and minimal. Today I’m sharing what I’ve been using lately and tell you about some products I am enjoying using.
First of all, pure, cold pressed, unrefined coconut oil is my favourite to wash my face with. I don’t do this daily, I do it about twice a week. I massage the oil gently onto my face for a minute or two, and then VERY GENTLY take it off with a cotton muslin. I like that my skin is clean afterwards and that it doesn’t strip my skin of oil.
When it comes to moisturising, I have been using Embryolisse which is a super basic moisturiser which I mix with a few drops of pure rosehip oil. The mixture of the cream and the oil is really moisturising and gentle and it feels amazing on my skin.I also find that the oil spreads better when mixed with the cream.
Embryolisse does contain mineral oil which I normally avoid, but it doesn’t break me out at all and it feels really lovely on my skin, plus it’s light and I feel like I have nothing on my skin after a minute of applying it. Also I can put it around my eyes and entire face without any irritation. I have talked about rosehip oil in the past. I simply love how it makes my skin look and feel.
These simple products are helping me keep my skin calm, clear, hydrated, soft and supple without being greasy. I’m happy with them and their results, plus I also like how simple they make my routine.
Have you tried any of these products? What are you using at the moment that you like?
