Truth be told, I don't have a good complexion. I've been plagued with bad skin for as long as I can remember. With the help of a very very generous dermatologist, I have clear skin now and we're more focused on treating the scars than acne.
Then the stupid weather (currently 34 degrees and boiling) wrecked everything.
I am peeling. I am blotchy. I don't think I'll react well if this happens close to the photoshoot or wedding.
The facialist has recommended me Dermalogica Barrier Repair
and Daily Microfoliant
The Barrier Repair acts as a barrier (duh, I feel dumb just typing it) between your skin and the world, protecting it from pollutants and chemicals that irritate the skin. It is absorbed very quickly and my face doesn't feel greasy.
[Usually I hate layering creams and potions because they become sticky in this humid weather. Instead of being absorbed by the skin, it sits on top and irritates me. By afternoon I'm not sure if it's moisturiser or dirt or oils. It's just gross. ]
And since my skin is super sensitive to fragrances, coloring and now heat, I have to use this superfine exfoliant so my face isn't scrubbed raw. Although it says 'Daily Microfoliant', I was advised NOT to use it daily because, yeah, my skin is THAT sensitive.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Let's hope the weird peeling and blotchy skin go away
