I wanted to update you all on my skin because it’s been so much better these past three or four months. By sticking to a good skincare routine I have managed to reduce my red blemishes on my cheeks and the under-skin spots as well as help my dry skin stay much more hydrated.
In the morning I like to use a basic cleanser because I don’t have too much time to get ready. My favourite one for the last few months has been The Body Shop Tea Tree foaming cleanser. I wet my hands and rub two pumps directly onto my face and then wipe off with a muslin cloth. It’s really quick, keeps my face clean and with it being a tea tree product it helps with my blemishes and prevents break outs.
I have also been using the Urban Veda Reviving Hydrating toner each time after cleansing. I got this in a beauty box and for a toner, it’s really gentle on my skin and I never get any horrible stinging which is such a bonus. The ingredients are mostly natural which helps a lot towards it being good and gentle on my skin.
Every day without fail I use my No 7 Beautiful Skin for normal/dry skin to moisturise. I did go through a faze of not using this and in the summer I used a serum as well as this moisturiser but for now I’m just sticking with this. It’s one of those products that I always find myself going back to, especially being someone who has dry skin it is something I rely on.
The past week or so I am very much guilty of not taking my makeup properly since I ran out of my micellar water I have resorted to using face wipes. After that though I have been using everyone’s favourite… the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I love using this in the evenings because not only is the scent relaxing but the texture is really calming on my skin which helps with relaxing. After this I use the same toner as above because it’s really gentle and it smells so good!
I have really been loving the Malin & Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer too. I use this all over my face after toning and I like this one at night becasue it’s such a fast absorbing product. It’s water based and absorbs really well before I go to bed which I can’t stand sticky products on my face before going to sleep. This is also a really gentle cream and hardly has a scent so is a perfect night cream.
So that’s an update of the products I am currently using on my face. Let me know if you use any of these or have any ones I should try!
