Post Travel Skin Care Routine

My skin has been the worst since I’ve gotten back from my trip. In fact, it was pretty bad during my trip. I mean I did travel to three different provinces within Spain, so that’s three very different climates. It was as if I was a hormonal teenager all over again. My skin went from oily to dry back to oily in just a week.

The funny thing is that I brought sheet masks with me, but every time I had a little bit of downtime from being all touristy…I was entirely too lazy to put on a mask. Even when I returned, I was still way too lazy (and tired) to put on a measly little sheet mask. So yesterday, (I got back last Thursday) I finally decided to do my full skincare routine – mask included.

By that point, I had to bring out the big guns because my skin was looking really rough. I pulled out my May Lindstrom the Problem Solver, mixed that bad boy up with some water, and lathered the mixture onto my face. I let that sit for about 10 minutes and I could really feel the tingling. I washed that off and my skin really did thank me by being extra smooth and somehow less heavy. The May Lindstrom comes in this giant jar that retails at exactly $100. It comes with enough powder to last years. Honestly, they could make the jar much smaller and retail it at $50 and an even smaller one at $25. Why is this jar so big?

I also started using Sunday Riley’s facial oils and my face LOVES them so much. My mom let me siphon some of hers so that I didn’t have to spend an arm and a leg on my own. My favorite one so far is the Juno because it really does give your skin a nice glow when it’s dull looking. I like to use the Juno along with the Luna to create a power couple for my skin. The Luna makes my pores appear smaller and the Juno makes my skin glow…what a match right? Of course, after my masks treatment, I put the Juno as the bottom layer, a cream moisturizer, and then finally the Luna as the top layer. The Luna oil contains retinol which can be harsh, so I like a nice thin buffer before adding it on.

I woke up this morning with a nice clean canvas. I like to save this routine (mainly the May Lindstrom) for when I am in serious need of a deep pore cleansing treatment. I wasn’t too aware that traveling could really do a number on your skin. Seriously…do the mask when you first arrive at your hotel or else your skin will rebel!

Thanks for reading, catch you all on Friday.
