Calm your skin down

Written by Alaine

A friend of mine has super sensitive skin. When she gets sick, her skin breaks out, when you put a face mask over her skin, her skin turns red. I recommended her to try out Repechage skin care line. I saw her a few days later and her skin cleared up and doesn’t flare up at the tiniest bit of stress.

New York living is pretty stressful for the skin and this line seems to be the answer to relieve the pollution, subway grossness, humidity, and overall grime that sticks to the skin. The products in the Hydra 4 Travel collection is perfect to get introduced to the line because it has a little of everything you would need. Everything in this line is made from natural marine and plant extracts (olive oil, seaweed, quinoa). The travel collection includes a cleanser, tonic, moisturizer, and mask. My sensitive skinned friend is a big fan of the mask. She said that when the mask was applied to her face, a dramatic improvement in the skin’s texture, and really calmed the redness down. According to Repechage, the mask uses “Silk and Wheat Proteins to repair and restore.”

Also for sensitive skin types, I recommend MyChelle’s Sun Shield SPF 28 because it doesn’t leave a white filmy texture behind or greasy. According to their website it is gentle enough for infants and children. It also doesn’t clog pores and cause nasty breakouts. I’ve been using this for the entire summer and a big fan of it.
