Gosh, why does everyone have to be so sensitive?!
These days, are we still putting on a face full of makeup for the whole day? When the mask is on, there isn’t much to see, which is why some people have ditched the everyday beat and glam. It’s a huge shift in the beauty industry, considering more and more have been switching to, or at the very least incorporating, skincare.
Finally giving the skin more room to breathe and de-clog, these brands have traded their usual ingredients to a more toned-down formula. And since the skin is no longer used to cake-y makeup, it results to breakouts, oiliness, and dryness, too. One try-on of a new pretty product you see and your epidermis is already thinking, “lol nice try.” Finding the right product is a pain in the ass, especially for sensitive skin, so we’ve curated a list of skin tints and moisturizers to try for when your face is acting up. Remember, it’s different for everyone, but it’s important to know which ingredient your skin is reacting to.
