It’s about time for another beauty skincare post! For my fashion week beauty routine, it is important for me to not overpack and only take my must-haves products because they can be heavy. This time, I brought the minimum amount of products because, first of all, New York hotels don’t usually have a lot of space. Although I did get pretty lucky with 11 Howard, which is my go-to hotel in New York City.
First thing in the morning, I start by prepping my skin with the Bioderma Sensibio Crealine H2O Micelle Water. This is a great makeup remover for sensitive eczema-prone skin like mine. I use it every morning and night because it is so easy and requires no rinsing after. Then I gently pad the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence on my skin without a cotton pad. On sunny days, I use the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, which helps to prevent sun spots and dark spots. However, since the New York weather was mostly gloomy, I only used this a few times. Next, I apply the Biossance revitalizer on my skin and hair. It makes my skin feel nourished but not oily or tacky. I discovered the brand Biossance about three months ago and I am completely in love because all their products are 100% natural. After that, I apply the Avene XeraCalm A.D. Lipid Replenishing Cream. This cream is extremely moisturizing which is perfect for the very cold weather in New York. If you don’t have really dry skin or you are looking for something lighter, I recommend the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Rose Infused Nourishing Cream.
I am really obsessed with facial oil, especially the Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil. I started using this oil a year and a half ago and I haven’t stopped ever since. I always bring it with me everywhere I travel. The other oil that I like is the Biossance Rose Facial Oil. If you have oily skin, don’t be put off by using oil on your face! You can use it at night right before bed and still get the moisturizing effect.
After my face is properly moisturized, I make sure to apply sunscreen to protect my skin against the UV rays. I am currently using “I Woke Up Like This Sun Cream”, which my friend Jenny got for me from Korea. I also recommend the Laura Mercier Daily Face Shield Broad Spectrum with SPF 40. I like these two sunscreens because they are light and work well with makeup.
During NYFW, I wear more makeup than usual so I cleanse my skin really well at the end of the day. First, I use the Kopari Coconut cleansing oil. I discovered Kopari from Revolve and I’ve been loving all of their coconut products. At home, I usually use the Laura Mercier cleansing oil, but since the bottle is a little too tall, I started traveling with this one. Afterwards, I use the Lagom Foam Cleanser from Peach & Lily. This is a Korean brand and it works really well for sensitive skin like mine. Lastly, I use the La Mer cleansing lotion. It’s milky and great for removing eye makeup. I have the travel size of it so it is really easy to carry around.
That’s it for my NYFW beauty routine! I am currently looking to add an eye cream to my routine but I haven’t found one that I like. Do you have any recommendations? Also, what are your beauty must-haves? Let me know! I always love to discover new skincare products.
