I was going to do a You Tube video on this but I thought I’d blog it instead. So as I’ve mentioned a few times before I am trying to get my skin into a nice condition ready for my holiday and naturally in general. My skin can sometimes be a bit dry and sometimes quite shiny and oily looking which is not how I want my skin to look. I also have sensitive skin so I sometimes use products that are specifically for that skin type.
I’ve been trying to get myself into a skincare routine for quite some time now but I now feel that I had cracked it and that I am sticking to it yay go me!.
I use three main brands for my routine, these are L’Oréal Paris, Simple and Garnier. I’ve been using these brands especially simple for many years now so I know they are good brands to use for my skin and that they won’t cause my skin any damage. I also like to use the odd face mask and have a little pamper session, what girl doesn’t :).
I 9/10 use the L’Oréal Paris section cleansing and perfecting milk to take off my make up. If it’s a day where I have worn a lot of eye make up then I tend to take that off first using the L’Oréal Paris micellar gel for sensitive eyes. I feel that this really helps remove my eyeliner and mascara with ease, as sometimes just using the cleansing milk I can still feel the mascara on my lashes. After I have used the micellar gel on my eyes I go in the cleanser all over my face as then slightly touching on my eyes, not too much as I don’t want to make them red. If I feel like being lazy (which sometimes I can be) or if I’m tired I will sometimes use the simple cleansing facial wipes to remove my make up.
I sometimes use the cleaner even when I’m not wearing my make up just so that my skin can still be cleansed. I cleanse once a day on an evening and sometimes on a morning depends on what my skin is like. Once I have cleansed my face I then move onto exfoliating.
This product smells amazing, so fresh and fruity. It helps my skin look brighter and removes any of the dirt on my face. With it being an gentle exfoliator it’s not too harsh on my skin. I find that with the product I don’t need to use a lot of it so it is lasting me quite a while. I use this product every morning.
I then use the Garnier skin naturals toner. I use this product twice a day once in the morning and once on the evening. This really does help my pores become more tightened and less visible. This toner is also suitable for oily skin so its perfect for me. I can definitely see a different by using this toner.
I am using simple’s day and night cream and I can’t fault them. The day cream is more thicker than the night cream but they both work really well and my skin is definitely more hydrated and it stays hydrated throughout the day.
By sticking to this routine and using all of my products I can see a massive difference in my skin. For once thing I barely get any spots or blackheads!!!!. My skin looks and feels more smoother and very hydrated.
To me having nice skin gives me more confidence to not wear make up, which on holiday I won’t be wearing make up until the evenings.
What’s you skincare routine? Anything you would recommend me try?
