Depressed Skin

I have a terrible dry skin, the kind of skin that behaves like paper in morning. It feels like it is depressed forever. Sometimes I expect it to crumble but thank god it's just in my imagination. As it's cold and dry, it's killing my skin. So I have to coat it with every kind of lotion that can keep up with my skin and make it happy. I want to spend the winters without broken skin so I have to keep a good skin routine. 

Nivea Body Cream
This cream is vv good. But it's TOO thick. If I apply a thick layer of it on my skin, it might suffocate. So I mix this liquid body lotion with it so it blends perfectly and becomes as almost thin as my skin would require. This mixture feels nice and I'm almost proud of myself for finding a way to keep using this Nivea, because I trust Nivea for winters.

Johnson's Baby Lotion
My beauty standards are higher than yours, yes with a baby lotion. As I said my skin needs to be happy with something very light and moisturizing at the same, I had to go back to Johnson's. It's everything I need for my face. I have a horrible habit of covering my face with loads of lotion when I'm extremely happy or sad or anxious. Basically, my skin needs moisturization when my emotional level is unbalanced.

 Beewax Lipbalm
This is a vvv simple homeopathic beewax lip balm and THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN MY LIFE. I can go out without money or my gadgets but not without this lipbalm. And it becomes 200% more important in cold season because my lips need it like my lungs need oxygen, this is how I feel their chemistry is. I have at least 3 extra lip balms in stock just in case. And it protects my lips like nothing else, it is why I have given up on Nivea lip chapsticks.

Remember to moisturize your skin at least 3 times a day. And as I have to make wudu and rub off everything from my face 5 times a day so I have to repeat the process everytime. Have a happy happy happy skin!

How do you keep your skin healthy?

  1. Have you tried an oil? I find them super hydrating. Right now I'm using a rosehip oil & it works wonders during the dry season. Wishing you a happy weekend!! :]

  2. I like putting some coconut or monoi oil on my skin before I get out of the shower. It really seems to help!


  3. I swear by cleanse, tone, moisturise. This always keeps my skin healthy. xx


  4. I have sensitive skin as well, the winters can be cruel at times if I don't take the proper precautions. I like how you deemed it depressed skin, lol. I agree with Carmen, have you tried oils? I use coconut oil by itself and sweet almond oil mixed in my lotion - it's ridiculously hydrating in the best possible way.


  5. Girl, I'm on the same boat with dry skin. My mom loves Nivea body lotions and swears by it. I'm thirding (is that a word haha) oils, some aren't the best to use everyday but it's a nice treat for your skin once in a while!

  6. I have dry skin too and it's annoying at times! Also, lip care wise I've been using eos lip balms at the moment but they taste really good - which probably isn't a good thing all the time! Take care! :) P.S I love the way you've used fairy lights in the photos - it's so effective :) xx

  7. I also have dry skin but Niva products never work for me,it lave dry ugly whit patches on my face very time.i love cuticura face wash for dry and sensitive skin its been years, and i still love them.Stives facial moisturizer is also my love.

  8. Haha, I love the addition of baby lotion. Hey, they have really good skin! Must pick one up myself! ;D Btw, love your photos!

  13. You say paper? I say tree bark. That's how insane my skin is. No concoction worked on me. Vaseline, Nivea, Ponds, Yaddi yaddi yadda. I have this new thing by Gold Bond that I have settled with. It has ten times the power of a moisturizer. Body butters are also on my list. Good luck to you! Good luck to me!

  14. Cherry Blossom is one of my favourite smells! I bet it's amazing!
