Not me in the photo, just thought it was pretty and a fun way to kick off a discussion. I was having coffee with a friend and somehow we happened upon my daily skin routine. She was really surprised with how long it took and how involved it was. Granted, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to fuse UV protection and makeup so that (1) my full body is protected and (2) I can mostly cover up my malar (butterfly) rash and other redness in a way that doesn’t appear heavy and “caked on”.
I was wondering if any of you have come up with your own custom routines and what they are like, what products you enjoy and what does/doesn’t make your skin feel better (e.g. I can’t use chemical OTC sunscreen. I turn super red and it stings. I have to have a 100% mineral based UV protection protocol).
Also, would it be helpful or fun to have a well known makeup company provide good tutorials or even **custom products tailored for our unique needs**? This is kinda of crazy, but after my friend listened to my tale of getting prepped to face the world (pardon the pun!), she disclosed that she has some great contacts at Urban Decay. I was like “PLEASE have them do something for us!!!”.
Anyway, drop me a line about your relationship with skin care, UV protection and makeup. Would love to hear all your stories!!
(if you have links to videos with tips and tricks that would be awesome as well)
