“There are a lot of texture enhancers like silicones and acrylates that are automatic turnoffs for me because they’re a cheap way of providing the feel of emollience or fluff.”

  • Holifrog -Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash
    STEP

    I wash my face a few times per day, depending on my workout schedule. The reason I’m able to wash my face this many times per day without stripping my skin is because all HoliFrog face washes are formulated with a surfactant level of 7 percent or less. Surfactants are the cleansing agents, and most cleansers are loaded with about 30 to 40 percent surfactants, which is unnecessary and also extremely drying.
  • Allies of Skin-Vitamin-C 35% Collagen Rebuilding Serum

    Vitamin C is one of the buzziest skin-care ingredients for good reason. It scavenges free radicals, helps with discoloration, and brightens skin. A 35 percent vitamin C serum quite literally means that 35 percent of the formula is antioxidant. For me, this serum ensures that my skin is shielded from environmental damage at the base level but also very much keeps my skin looking bright on the superficial level. It’s also helped even out any scar discoloration from pimple-picking in my 20s.
  • Rms Beauty-Beauty Oil
    STEP
    3
    This oil is a beautiful combination of light (jojoba) and heavy (rose hip seed) carrier oils, so it gives me the perfect medium consistency. After I wash my face, I leave my skin slightly damp as I apply the Beauty Oil. I use this instead of a moisturizer right now because I have found t hat the high level of emulsifiers in most creams clog my pores. So until I find one that doesn’t (or launch my own!), this oil does the trick. Also, there are no essential oils in the RMS Beauty Oil. I can’t use any fragrance, either natural or synthetic, because it breaks me out.
  • Biossance-Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream
    STEP

    Eye cream is one of those products where you don’t know until you know! I didn’t jump on the eye-cream bandwagon until probably about three to four years ago and now feel naked without one. With Biossance, I love the feeling of the extra padding layer this provides under my eyes, yet there is no pilling issue after the cream fully sinks in. It keeps this delicate area looking cushy, in a way where they’re dewily hydrated.
  • Daily Protezione-Vive Sana
    STEP

    daily protezione vive sana
    SPF and I have had a long, frustrating journey. Chemical screens break me out (you’re probably finally seeing the pattern of freakish breakout behavior and paranoia I have) and non-silicone mineral screens usually just drip right off my face (thereby causing me to burn) because I’m a total sweater. Vive Sana is a waterless, oil-based SPF. Since the oils stick to your face and lock the mineral SPF on my skin, it neither drips off my face nor requires silicones to hold the mineral protection in place.
