#FreeInMySkin with Physiogel

A few weeks ago, just after Christmas, an unexpected present arrived at my house: IMG_8056The top of the card made it obvious what was inside: Physiogel goodies! On the inner part of the flap I discovered that it was a thoughtful surprise from my friend and one of my fave beauty bloggers, Liz Lanuzo. She sent it over to share the goodness that is Physiogel.

I’m far from being unfamiliar with the brand as I used to have dry skin and continue to have sensitive skin and bouts of skin asthma. Still, I was so very happy to receive some of a brand that I love. It might seem a little funny to get excited over a box of lotions, but if you’ve struggled with your skin in the past then you’ll understand.
IMG_8058I now have a healthy supply of the Cleanser, Lotion, and Cream (two tubes, yay!). It was still unnaturally cold when these came to me, so it was just perfect timing all around. The Lotion helped relieve rashes on my back and the Cream soothed my face which was starting to crack a bit on the cheek area (something that has not happened to me in a long time).

Dermatologists love to recommend Physiogel products to treat a number of ailments, but you don’t need a prescription to pick them up. They’re easily available at drugstores and set at a very reasonable price, so there’s no excuse for settling for heavily scented, cheap lotions that just don’t do the job. I definitely feel #FreeInMySkin when my rashes aren’t flared up and my dry patches are done away with, so if you’ve any of the same problems, you already know what to try!

I love practical gifts. Thanks a bunch, Liz! :)

Skin Care Regimen (3rd Quarter 2013)

It took a while but I think I’ve finally found a good skin care regimen to fit my current needs. I’m still struggling with the oiliness in my skin when I wear makeup, but I think I have found a balance when it comes to cleansing and nourishing my skin. As I’ve mentioned before, my dermatologist put me on a regimen for combination skin when previously I had been treating my skin as though it were dry (which it used to be — very dry). I saw my derma again just yesterday and I didn’t have any new pimples to show her at the time, but I do still get the occasional blemish. She told me to keep applying the same products and to use the medicine she gave me three times a week (I had been applying it only when pimples popped up). I also have quite a bit of hyper pigmentation left over from dried up pimples, but those will fade in time. What’s important is that my skin is now much more balanced and less prone to pimples.SCR1These are the products I’ve been using to keep my skin balanced and clean and I just thought I would share them with you today. I do think that it is important to note that skin care is incredibly specific to every individual and so even if you also have combination skin, these will not necessarily work for you. I will however do my best to share what I can about the products, maybe helping you kick off your research in a way too.
