The Beauty Girl's Secret to Radiant Skin (Psst... it's boscia)
When I lived in New York City, I rarely had any issues with my skin, but once I made the big move to L.A., a few years ago, I noticed that my skin was way more irritable and prone to break-outs.
Since my skin was breaking out, I thought that I needed to dry it out, but it was actually the opposite. I needed to moisturize and hydrate even more because my skin was breaking out because it was producing too much oil due to the change to a much drier climate.
So the trick was to keep my skin extra hydrated and moisturized, not dried out, because this would make my skin return back to its natural state of producing a healthy amount of oil.
Once my skin started producing my natural amount of oil again, my break-outs went away because my pores were no longer clogged with excess oil and usual healthy glow was back.
However, it's been journey to finding the right moisture that wouldn't leave my skin feeling and looking oily or mess up my make-up, but was still effective enough to heal my dry skin and prevent break-outs.
So luckily for me, and for anyone looking for smooth, clean, and radiant skin, there's the new boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer.
