Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 1 ($52.00) is a product that boasts 1% of pure oxygen and Vitamin A, which is a patented combination by Dr. Herzog. This cream is meant to be used both morning and night, and it does a whole slew of things. It promotes healing, increases cell regeneration, minimizes pores, detoxifies, hydrates, diminishes lines and wrinkles, and desensitizes sensitive skin.
I was using increased amounts of acne medications, and predictably, they made my skin more sensitive. There were few creams that I could use without feeling like my face was on fire. Vita-A-Kombi 1 was one of them, and even better, it can be used both morning and night. It is a fairly thick cream, and it does take some time (5 to 10 minutes) to sink into your skin. It is best applied with a light layer all over the face, but without rubbing it too much into the skin; instead, just let it absorb naturally. My skin looked refreshed, and it felt so soft.
My only complaint was that every time I used this, my boyfriend told me I smelled like old lady. So I ended up wearing this mostly at night, rather than day, because I didn’t want people thinking I smelled like “old lady.” Otherwise, the results were right in line with what I expected, and my skin was happy to use it for a few weeks!
The Karin Herzog line was the first to stabilize and deliver pure oxygen in cream form. The brand manufacturers their products in Switzerland, doesn’t conduct animal testing, and products are hypo-allergenic. Learn more at www.karinherzogus.com.

Yeah, I put on a full face of makeup to pack up my apartment! So what!
I used Uppity fluidline (LE) on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on middle of lid, Humid eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow on brow and lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara. I had Margin blush on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) with Pink Grapefruit lipglass (LE) on my lips.

Even though you’re probably a sunscreen wiz, since I know you’ve already read our Sunscreen 101 series, sometimes over exposure occurs, and you’re left with reddened skin. What to do? Follow up with a cooling treatment with high aloe vera content.
Liz Earle Sun Shade Botanical Aftersun Gel ($23.50) is a very lightweight gel to help soothe skin that’s just seen too much sun and needs some cooling treatment. My boyfriend, who is much fairer than I, also burns easy compared to me (I don’t think I’ve ever had sunburn). I put this on his shoulders, and he was a happy camper. It has 92% hydrating organic aloe vera, which is a must-have in your beauty closet when it’s summer (if not year-round!). I sometimes use this on itchy or raw skin, and I find it gives me enough comfort and cooling to keep me from making it worse on myself.
