December 2021 was the worst month I can remember in terms of my skin. My face went BERZERK. (Lips too!) Tight, red, flaky, swollen, flushed, you name it…my skin was so unhappy.
It was the perfect storm of many factors – dry, winter weather, perimenopausal skin, an allergic reaction to SLS…and none of my old favorites were helping at all. My skin was so angry – take a look for yourself!
Ugh. It was a rough month. So I started from scratch and purchased some products from Avène (my son uses Avène for his eczema with great success so I decided to give it a try).
You all, within a few days, the improvement in my skin was shocking. I couldn’t believe my eyes and I’ve become the world’s biggest Avene fan. (And if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know I don’t gush unless I’ve been beyond wowed by a product line.) Here was my skin after using the Avène products exclusively for a week:
I delved into the details about my skincare freakout and the products that saved the day in a video yesterday on Instagram Stories – you can watch it here in my SOS highlight. (Also, take notice of my much happier skin!)
When my skin is freaking out like in the above photos, I use these 4 products and nothing else – no serums, no actives.
I simply cannot express how incredible these products are for conditions like rosacea, eczema, perioral dermatitis, flushing, hypersensitivity, and/or perimenopausal dryness. I am forever a fan.
Happy skincare buying and I hope these products bring you the same relief.
