I love finding a REALLY GOOD formula perfect for the season. It’s so easy to go on using what we have, but the truth is – changing up formulas each season to suit our skins needs is essential. We have to move from using heavier creams and embrace weightless formulas that allow our skin to breath during warmer days. The beauty lies in a formula that is weightless, yet rich enough to leave our skin feeling hydrated. I’m constantly on the hunt to find lightweight, quality products that not only give me great moisture, but also transform my skin.
I’ve been a fan of the Japanese skincare brand Tatcha for some time now. You all know my love for Korean and Japanese skincare! I cannot get enough. I’m constantly trying new products and I am constantly learning – I love it. Tatcha’s Silk Cream is a perfect example of a formula that is rich yet weightless. This gel cream is comprised of a liquid silk protein and Japanese superfoods that leave your skin feeling as smooth as silk. I’ve been religiously using it for over a month now and the entire process feels so luxurious – from the application to the continuous wear, The Silk Cream makes my skin feel like a million bucks. I get giddy about things like the Akoya Pearl being an ingredient in the formula to help support natural collagen. For me personally, a cream must not only help hydrate but also continue to transform the texture of my skin! It’s important to look for products that have an aspect of HEALING to them as well. The Silk Cream hydrates while helping to reduce the signs of premature aging – win, win.
The Japanese geishas used silk for all types of their beauty treatments. I am so intrigued! I’m going to continue to do research on other ways I can incorporate silk into my beauty routines – will keep you posted!
