One of the unfortunate consequences of LA's yo-yo weather is the crazy reaction it induces from your skin. It goes from oily and clogged to dry and peeling in 24 hours, and back again. Trying to control the chaos has been all but maddening, and often feels like a science experiment gone wrong. But since I treat my face like a skincare test lab, I have made some valuable discoveries. The first of which is that treating my skin gently is key right now, hence my switch to creamier cleansers (like the Ocean Cleanser from Osea), richer balms and oils (May Lindstrom's Blue Cocoon has been a godsend), and an SPF to always protect my sun-sensitive complexion (Glossier's new Invisible Shield is an instant fave). Check out the rest of my skincare favorites below!
