SOMEONE HELP ME.

6 Dec

My skin is FREAKING out! The weather, the heat, stress, hormones – I have a red rash all around my nose and mouth that makes me look like I spent the night sucking face with Ronald McDonald. And maybe caught something.

I have been being super gentle with my skin – stopped using the Clarisonic, switched to Boscia skincare since a lot of it’s fragrance free, moisturizing like crazy, using Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Gel, and today went so far as to use Diorskin Nude BB Creme – and I don’t ever use foundation. The closest I come is Chantecaille’s Future Skin, which is lovely and quite helpful when my skin is normally uneven, but can’t even touch what I have going on right now. The Diorskin is an improvement but I really don’t like the one-dimensional look it gives my face. I just really hate foundation is the problem.

So I turn to you, dear readers (what are there, like six of you? Five?) for recommendations. I want a foundation to hide my shame. But I don’t want to look fake. But it needs to have at least medium coverage. But I would still like to look like I have pores. But not like I have a contagious disease. You see my problem.

Recommendations? Advice? Help? I welcome it.
