Skincare For Hay Fever

I've been suffering with dry skin and breakouts recently as illness, hay fever and allergies has come into play. I've stripped my skincare routine back down to the basics of what I know my skin loves and reacts to well, and in doing so I've dug out some old favourites to help soothe my complexion. Here are a few of my top picks: 

Eye cream is a must have around this time of year. I can't quite believe how irritated, cracked and itchy my eyes are - it's the worst they've ever been! The Drunk Elephant Shaba Complex Eye Serum* has been a favourite as it's lightweight, yet still nourishing and it's finally started to help how the skin around my eyes feel. 

If I do decide to wear makeup, I've found a good trio of products which prep my skin ready. I start off with the Clinique Turnaround Accelerated Skin Serum* and follow up with the Clinique Moisture Surge* which makes my skin feel hydrated and ultra-silky and soft. I then rekindled the love for my Glossier Priming Moisturiser and have been using that as the third step to make sure my skin looks healthy and plump. 

I have quite a few face masks to choose from, but the lightweight, nourishing offerings are my go-to, especially when it's warm outside. The Glow Recipe Watermelon Mask* and Origins Drink Up Intensive are two of my favourites when my skin needs a boost of hydration, yet has redness to calm down and blemishes to banish too. They're super easy to use and help my skin so much. 

My body, especially my inner arms, are in dire need of some TLC as hay fever and allergies aren't just affecting my face. The Nuxe Dry Body Oil* is one a few products I've been loving (see full line up here) and although it's thicker than other body care products I use during these seasons, I can't deny how much my body loves to drink this up. 

What skincare products do you like to use when you're suffering with hay fever?
