Skin Concerns: Dry Skin / Acne / Combination Skin
I always find it a struggle when my skin is having a really dry week, it gets flaky and sore for no reason whatsoever, and this happens particularly in the winter. As I suffer with eczema, which normally occurs on my body, but sometimes patches of dry skin on my face can feel like eczema. Unfortunately, most products that relieve dryness are unbelievably oily, and I wouldn’t risk applying my eczema treatment on my face in fear of breakouts! For day to day moisturising use, most of us, who suffer with oily skin and acne would use oil-free moisturisers. However, when the skin is incredibly dry these are pretty useless, and I don’t think that they help the situation at all. Therefore, it is very hard to get the right balance, you want to relieve the dryness without making it the skin too oily and causing break outs!
I recently discovered Nip and Fab’s Dry skin fix, I decided to buy it whilst it was on offer in super drug. The main selling point is that it is for those with blemish prone skin, and helps to reduce spots and redness in aim to help clear skin and also remove make up. It contains tea tree which helps it have these skin clearing properties. In addition to this, however, I have found that it is very moisturising, and its cream like consistency helps it to achieve this property. It makes an excellent change from my daily cleanser when my skin is dry. Another great thing about this product is that is can be used as a mask, therefore can be left on for a little while longer, or even over night if skin is overly dry, to work its magic. This little pot of cream do so many different things:
The deep cleansing fix:
1) Removes make-up
2) Deeply Cleanses
3) Can be used as mini 10 minute mask
4) Leave on overnight as an intensive hydrating mask
5) Can be applied directly to blemishes
6) Exfoliating action when used with muslin cloth
