It’s already spring in Tokyo and my skin finally went back to normal! Winter brought back my atopic dermatitis and putting on makeup as well as removing it, made it so complicated. I gave up and just wore my bare skin with tons of moisturizer. Now that it’s spring, I feel obliged to share with… Continue reading Spring Skincare with Evita Rose Foam
