From time to time, my skin would react to one thing or another, and recovery takes time. As I age, the rate of recovery seems to have slowed, and yet my lifestyle is quickening. Who has time to stay home and await for better skin days?
Very recently, I was given this tube of Nuxe Masque Crème Fraîche to review. It is a pity I never got around to writing a full review, because this little genie is instant SOS for irritated skin. It has a light milky texture with a marvelous floral scent that relaxes, dissipating all those anxiety and frustrations that bad skin often brings up. It is incredibly gentle, soothing all discomforts, never stinging. I massage it all over the face, including the eye area, leave it for 10-15minutes, and then blot off the excess. Instantly, any redness is greatly reduced, and my skin feels plumper.
To seal and boost the recovery process, I apply my favorite La Mer Moisturizing Gel Cream. Ever since I discovered La Mer (read about it here), the Creme de La Mer has always been in my stash. The original cream soothed my wind-burnt and severely dehydrated skin from weekend ski trips in the US. When I moved back to Asia, I turned first to the lotion and then the gel-cream. The latter feels slightly cooling when applied, and is absorbed rapidly, going to work to soothe, heal, moisturize and restore.
With these 2 power duo combined, my skin is much better overnight. It still takes some time for full recovery, but it now takes 3-4 days instead of a week.
