Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
I use the origins overnight mask (overnight). In the morning, start with the L'Oreal Hydra Confort Moisturising Cleansing Milk followed by Vichy serum (or alternatively use the origins orange moisturizer):
Are the flakes skin or silicone from all the creams? If its skin, then you need to exfoliate to get rid of them and for your creams to absorb. Either do a milk scrub or use an acid toner every or every other evening (nip and fab glycolic, pixi toner, liquid gold are all superb).
Estee Lauder nude is good for dry skin but coverage is medium. Go to a counter and ask for a sample, they are really good. Their double wear has great coverage but some people find it too drying. EL do their own primers too.
Clarins does a very moisturising primer that feels like pure silicone in a little red pot. Its very very good for dry skin.
I also use Eucerin Hyaluron filler before my moisturiser as it helps plump up the skin and retain moisture.
I assume you are massaging a very heavy cream at night (nivea blue pot, astral).
I use a balm moisturiser. The nivea blue tub or the one from kiehl's, then after that's kind of dried I use flash beauty balm. My skin is so dry all over my body, but this combination can actually be juuuust on the rich side for me. Creamy, runny, liquid moisturisers actually seem to leave my face worse for wear. Balms were the way forward for me. Good luck OP.
