I have no idea why. Since the past two weeks, my skin started to get very easily irritated. Even by just splashing it with water was enough to make red patches appeared and it would itch. Luckily it would go away in less than half hour. Still it’s bad… I’ve never experience such problem before. It’s my first time. Because of this, I had cut down on many products and used the basics in my daily skincare routine, cleansed, toned, moisturised, and protect.
Today, I went for my facial, the beautician asked me what’s wrong with my skin, the condition was really really bad. Last time, apart from dry skin and blackheads, now it got worst. She found out that my skin was even drier than it used to be which caused all these sensitivities and weaken the skin even more. LOTS of Blackheads too! Extremely long and painful extractions.
My question now is how to keep my face hydrated? I drink plenty of water daily, I eat normally, no yo-yo dieting. I don’t drink or smoke. Well… Not enough sleep and stress might part of the causes. The crazy weather these days might be the problem too. I did some research but all saying the same things to stay hydrated which I’m doing all the time. So? What else?
Can’t afford expensive products. I’ve been trying to hydrate my skin by investing in many hydrating range (those that can be bought from Watsons or Guardian) but nothing works so far 🙁 Need stronger ones I guess but that might mean I have to go for the high end products -.-”
Any tips or recommendations?
