I’m still a complete newbie when it comes to skincare & beauty products. I was a late developer when it came to makeup and things like that so I thought I’d share with you my current skincare routine.
It definitely needs some fine tuning & I would be grateful to anyone who can offer me advice on how to deal with blemish-prone skin.
Morning skincare tends to be a quick blast of cold water to my face in the shower as I don’t really have time to be washing & cleansing as I get up at the crack of dawn to start work.
So I literally have my hot morning shower, then blast my face with cold water. Once out of the shower, I use the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo all over my face. I only use a little which is perfect for my face.
Evening skincare is a little bit better. Once I get home from work and I’ve cooked dinner (standard!) I go up to the bathroom & start removing my make-up. For that I use the Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar water. It is THE best make-up remover I have ever used. I will be doing a separate review about this soon (keep your eyes peeled!)
When I’ve removed every little bit of makeup, I use my little dinosaur flannel (a present from my old workmates) to gently buff my face before I use my night moisturiser. I use the Clinque Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturiser. I’ve had this since Christmas and I’m almost running out so its something I definitely need to repurchase. It makes my skin so smooth and it makes it look a lot brighter aswell.
I use my Sunday evenings to give my skin the care is deserves. I don’t tend to wear makeup on a Sunday so I only use a little Bioderma on my face just to remove anything that is on my face. I try to use a facemask when I can to try and draw any impurities out of my skin. I tend to use the 90p ones from Boots. I currently have a chocolate one & a pomegranate one to try out. I also love the fresh face masks from Lush! I used to have the Catastrophic Cosmetic which was brilliant. Definitely want to try some more of those! But anyway, I’m rambling.
So I leave the face mask on for the desired time then buff off with my little flannel. Then I use the Botanics All Bright Exfoliater which is quite a harsh scrub but for a once a week use its fine. I just exfoliate that on, then buff it off. I then soak my flannel in cold water and lay over my face to close the pores up which is quite relaxing! To moisturise I just use the Clinque one that I use every night.
So that is my skincare routine. As I said at the beginning if anyone can give me some skincare advice I would be eternally grateful!
