Describe your skin:
Very sensitive, combination skin

What are your short term and long term skin goals?
Find some serious holy grail products to swear by, and prevent wrinkling as long as possible!

Biggest concern:
Fine lines in my forehead and smile line, (but those only mean I’m laughing a lot so that’s ok)

I only wash my face at night or after I work out because 2 times a day takes a toll on my skin. I use the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Wash because it does a good job of taking care of the oily spots on my face (chin and forehead). I moisturize after washing my face and before makeup with Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich (in the summer I use the regular Priming Moisturizer) and that’s it!

Washing your face in the morning is definitely something to consider. During the night, our pillowcases really get all up in there with bacteria, so giving your face a light cleanse in the morning can help skin immensely. For sensitive skin, we love COSRX’s Low-pH Good Morning Cleanser, La Roche Posay’s Toleriane and Avène’s Extremely Gentle Cleansing Lotion (which doesn’t even need water!).

I balance things out with masks when needed. I love the Frank Body Glow Mask when my skin’s on the drier side, and the GlamGlow Supermud Mask when my pores are feeling clogged. I like the Glossier Super Glow Serum when I’m feeling dull like during finals week or after a long and fun weekend. For breakouts I use the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, it’s a classic!
