I love that I’m able to chat with you guys on Snapchat! I do my best to respond when I can and to read as many messages as possible… but I especially love it when you guys send me amazing recommendations. Whether it’s a new book or answering a question I have, it’s like having tens of thousands of best friends giving me great tips.
Earlier this week, I posted on Snapchat that my chin was basically RAW from being so dry. I think it was a combination of things, like wind, dryness, and rubbing against high collars on coats. My chin was so dry that it cracked. It was not only ugly but extremely painful!!! You guys sent some incredible recommendations over my way. I thought I’d round up the ones that I received most often:
ONE // Humidifier
The most recommended “tip” was to get a humidifier for my bedroom. To be honest, I’ve meant to do this for years and think it’s finally time I bite the bullet. This humidifier is top-rated on Amazon, and a couple of girls sent me photos of the same brand.
TWO // Coconut Oil
This was THE most recommended product. I’ve never really bought into the whole “coconut oil cures everything” mindset, but after getting it sent to me probably 600 times, I think I’m willing to give it a try, ha. Make sure the coconut oil you use is virgin/unrefined/organic.
THREE // First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
After coconut oil, I got a lot of recommendations for First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I thought I had a sample of it somewhere, but couldn’t find it, so I will be popping into Sephora the next time I’m out to pick some up. People were swearing that it has magical healing powers!
A surprisingly high number of people also recommended this cream, but I have to admit that I would never be able to stomach forking over that much money for a moisturizer! Unless it will miraculously make my skin wrinkle-free overnight, I just could never do it.
The Glossier fan club came out in full force sharing their love for this super rich moisturizer.
SIX // CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
I think this was the most affordable product that was recommended over and over again. A lot of girls who had extremely dry skin from Accutane were swearing by this!
SEVEN // Oils
After those moisturizers (and not including just plain coconut oil), I also had a lot of tips to try facial oils. I think I had somewhere between 50 and 60 different oils recommended, so my guess is that just using an oil– regardless of brand– is likely helpful. I had a sample of this oil from Goop that I got from a press mailing. I kind of forgot I had it, but started to apply it under my regular moisturizer, and my skin was 50% better after 12 hours.
Anything else that didn’t make the cut that you highly recommend?
