In fact, my skin gets pretty stressed. More often than not, I’m dealing with breakouts, dryness, redness and/or irritation. And stressed skin makes me feel stressed, which subsequently affects my skin even more. And so, I live in a perpetual cycle of stressed-out skin concerns.
As a result, we beauty journalists tend to have a stash of products that we reach for any time our skin starts getting stressed out. We keep cleansers, serums and moisturisers on hand that we know can’t possibly do our skin any further damage, giving it just the right amount of nourishment it needs in order to find its feet again. Whether my complexion is dry and sore or spotty and congested, these are the skincare products I turn to when my skin is stressed.
