Desert Skincare

Processed with VSCO with c9 preset

Humid, dry, cold, hot, the climate will affect your skin. It’s inevitable. Since I moved to California, I’ve had to up my hydration considerably, so when I went to into the desert in Joshua Tree last month, I brought only my most hydrating products to prevent the even-drier air from sucking all the moisture out of my skin.

These products will give you the deepest hydration possible:


Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist is my favorite face mist of all time. I own 3 or 4 bottles and keep them in my car, purse, and medicine cabinet! It’s truly the most refreshing, hydrating facial spray, due to the cactus flower that helps your skin not only absorb but retain moisture.


Missha’s Time Revolution: The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist was featured yesterday. I can point to it as the addition to my California skincare regimen that has finally helped my skin adjust to the dry air.

It’s also one of the reasons I didn’t have to get laser treatment; rosehip oil is practically magic for fading and healing acne scars. You’d never guess I used to have the worst acne.

I love Ouai’s Rose Hair & Body Oil, because, as the name suggests, it’s a multitasker. It also smells like rose and melts into your skin, leaving it baby soft. It’s a great travel product for all of these reasons, and the pale pink liquid is simply gorgeous.
