I don’t know if you are like me but I have always had extremely sensitive skin, to the point where even some products labelled for sensitive skin can aggravate it. It’s because of this I can find it especially hard to find skin care that I like.
Luckily I have always had very good and clear skin (#humblebrag). But this Winter I have really struggled with dry skin, especially on my forehead. It was tight, sore and flaky – just not a great look and my usual skin care really wasn’t cutting it. I tried so many different things to combat the problem: sheet masks, heavy-duty creams, serums but I was seeing absolutely no improvement, if anything it was aggravating the rest of my face.
But finally I found my saving grace in the form of Bioderma’s Atoderm Intensive Baume and The Ordinary’s 100% Organic pressed Rose hip Oil.
I had originally bought the Bioderma cream for help with my eczema but thought I would give it a try as a last resort. After using the Bioderma twice a day daily for 3 days I noticed a massive improvement. I then started using rose hip oil every second night and have been so pleased with the results. My skin is now so soft and replenished feeling.
The cream is quite thick and heavy, so I would only put on dry skin and wouldn’t use as a long-term skin care regime but during Winter, this has really saved my skin!
If you are not looking for a heavy-duty cream, I couldn’t recommend rose hip oil enough. I chose The Ordinary’s one since it was 100% pressed organic so I wasn’t going to be using anything aggravating on my skin. And at £9, it was one of the cheapest on the market. However, you can also find rose hip oil in a majority of health stores. I just mix in a few drops into my moisturiser and use every other night or when I feel my skin needs it.
