It can be challenging when finding the right skincare line. As we get older, our skin requires more attention to detail. We have to nurture its needs and desires. Your skin isn’t the same when you are a child as when you get older. It is important to notice and research the products that your skin needs. It is also vital to be more conscious of the sun’s exposure to our skin and protect it accordingly. Back in the day, all my friends and I wanted to do was get tan and have rosy cheeks from the sun. That is how it trends when growing in Miami. The sun is waiting for you and always at your disposal. I have tried many different brands throughout my life and of course my career as a beauty writer and editor. I have gone to spas, dermatologists and had medical esthetician perform treatments on my skin. I learned that although I thought I had oily/combination skin, I actually had dry/sensitive skin. It’s amazing what you can learn with a little research. So I am here to share with you some of the amazing lines that I personally recommend for dry and sensitive skin. I will be bringing you more in my next article for combination/oily skin. They are wonderful lines that you should try! So without further delay, here are some of my favs:
