Hi! I'm Melissa — and my pandemic hobby was...skincare.
I have sensitive, combination skin that leans really dry in the winter — and my two main everyday goals are hydration and an even skintone.
Before we go into favorites, a quick-yet-necessary reminder.
Everyone is beautiful — you don't need any of this. And when it comes to more significant skin or hair issues with a root cause, your best bet is always consulting with a dermatologist.
Still, if you're troubleshooting any issues I list below — like hydration, dry scalp, or even mid-30s skin that's changed its mind — my hope is that this list can be helpful as a starting point. If you have any favorites I missed, please share them in the comments!
(And just to say: This list isn't sponsored. I've personally purchased, used, and loved everything below. 😊)
