When it comes to skincare, the French have never let me down (♥ Embryolisse and Vichy!) So when I read that NUXE ‘s Sérum Crème Fraîche de Beauté 24 Hr Moisturizing Anti-fatigue Concentrate provides 24-hr hydration and re-energizes stressed and dehydrated skin, which is exactly what I needed during the busy Holiday season, I jumped on it.

Since November is National Healthy Skin Month, I want to start a series of skincare posts to promote the importance of being good to your skin.

Now I don’t believe in using a ton of products or spending hundreds to get healthy skin, but I do believe in splurging on the basics when necessary. So below is a humble list of products I have been using to keep my dehydrated combo skin in best condition.

joeyZEN asked: Do you know of any foundations/powders that would hide dry spots? Like I have these dry, peely patches around my forehead and near my nose that show up REALLY bad when I have any powder on. I still have yet to find something that may hide it or reduce the “peely” presentation. Do you have any tips or advice? I’ve already tried exfoliators, concealers and applying additional coats of moisturizer after the powder but it only works for a short period of time.”
