The Ultimate Quick Fix Skincare Menu
When it comes to skincare, finding products that work for your complexion can sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. With so many new lotions and potions on the market – all promising “perfect” skin, it can be difficult to seek out the products that actually work. Testing skincare can also be pretty tricky as there are so many variables that can affect your skin at any given time. Additionally, with the application of each new product comes a “purging” period. This term describes the period of time that your skin needs to adjust to new products and usually lasts 6-8 weeks. During this time your skin is likely breakout in areas that you would not normally, due to the production of excess oils. Whilst this purging stage can sometimes feel like one hell of a wait, finding skincare that works for you can be a game changer.
I personally love trying out new products and formulas and seeing how they match up to their expectations. Over the last few years I have definitely tried my fair share of popular skincare star picks, so today I thought I would create an ultimate quick fix skincare menu featuring some of my favourite miracle products – for those days when your skin isn’t feeling too fab.
Dry patches, uneven skin texture and flaky foundation all too familiar? Then the next two products are for you! First up, the Pixi Rose Oil Blend. As someone with oily / combination skin, finding the balance of moisture and straight up oil can be a challenging. However, this heavenly scented oil makes things a hell of a lot easier. Before applying makeup I pop a little bit of this on to any pesky dry patches on my skin – usually my forehead and cheeks. This helps to avoid foundation clinging to any dry spots and banishes uneven texture.
Next up? The Origin’s Intensive drink up mask. I have found this product be particularly amazing for use after flying or during winter months where my skin tends to feel extra dry. I simply apply this before heading to bed, catch some Z’s and upon waking in the morning my skin feels noticeably softer and more plump.
Having not tried anything from the Pixi brand until earlier this year, I have to admit I was a little skeptical of this product’s claims and the online hype which it has received. However, having using their Glow Tonic religiously since purchasing I have noticed a major difference in my complexion. After just one day my skin looked noticeably brighter and within a week I saw my skin tone begin to even out. I now have so much love for this little miracle worker and will definitely be repurchasing in the future.
You know when you wake up in the morning, only to be greeted by a second head / super spot thats decided to take over your face? I feel ya. After trying out various spot relief quick fixes, I found the Mario Badescu drying lotion to be the best. The product’s chalky like liquid completely dries out any breakouts, terminating those unwanted visitors overnight. I personally love this product as a quick fix, however I feel like it may be a little abrasive for those with sensitive skin.
After a long day or a late night out, Rodial’s dragons blood eye masks are what dreams are made of. Designed to hydrate and tone the under eye area, these little guys instantly de-puff those pesky little eye bags – leaving a bright eyed appearance even after the longest of days. In addition to their instant, visible results the cooling gel contained within the pads is an absolute treat for the skin – I would wholly recommend adding them to your pamper routine.
I hope you enjoyed my little skincare quick fix roundup! Have you found any miracle products out there? I’d love to know!
