Fav Things: Skin Care Edition Bye Bye Flaky Skin
I am following a photographer on Instagram is she is talking about her skin journey. I love it because she is being authentic and keeping it really (especially in a social media space where everything seems fake.)
We all have a journey with our skin. At some point in our lives we will experience that our skin will do something that we don’t want it to. It’s just life. Our skin issues are normal, no matter what they are. They are all normal. Hear me? Normal.
This photographer mentioned that she has flaky skin. I totally understand her because when I was young I started a medication to address my acne. It worked and minimized my acne, however it left me with flaky skin for years.
Flaky skin is a funny thing. It seems as though it’s dry skin, but it’s not. My skin was oily by the middle of the day (still is). I have oily, flaky skin, which doesn’t seem to make sense.
About a year ago I found this silicone scrubber and it has removed all traces of flakiness. Bye bye flaky skin. First of all, let me address the issue of scrubber. The word itself sounds harsh. But it is not. It is actually really gentle on my sensitive skin. Here is the exact scrubber I use.
Second, I feel like using the right products with the scrubber will make it more effective. I use Dr. Bronner’s (almond scent, not flavor) in combination with the scrubber. Here is the exact soap I use.
I use both of these twice a day and it seems to have taken away all of the flakiness and made my skin smooth again.
