Here I was away from Moon Haven, away from home and I had forgotten to pack my Anti Ageing Skin Care System AND my Moisture Cream with Rose Geranium.
In fact I had left everything at home... and I mean EVERYTHING!
So I thought- oh well... a few days wont hurt me using something else on my skin.
I couldn't hve been more wrong!
So off I went down to a nearby pharmacy and picked up what i thought was a good quality as-natural-as-possible moisturiser and cleanser for sensitive, dry skin. They were a little pricey but I didn't want to compromise my skin for the sake of a few dollars.
Day 1 usung the acquired skincare was ok...my skin was reasonably hydrated when i woke up that first morning. The cleanser was adequate but it did leave my face feeling a little tight. I decided that I wouldn't use it again.
At the end of tjhe day my face felt warm, dry and uncomfortalbe. It was pink in places and my rosacea was starting flare. I applied more moisturiser which relieved the dryness for a few hours...but it didnt last.
Days 2 and 3 I was constantly having to play moisturiser catch up with my skin. and by Day 4 I knew that my skin was in trouble. I woke with a pimple above my eyebrown and a painfull lump developing at the corner of my mouth. My skin was sensitised, warm to the touch and papery.
I was breaking out and my skin was stressed.
ThankfullyI was on my way home ...and do you know what the first thing I did was?
Smothered my face with Bionutrient gel mixed with our Age defying serum. My skin soaked it up and started to relax... and even more importantly repair.
Needless to say - the very first thing I will pack from now on is my skincare. I dont want to go through that trial ever again.
