Every morning as soon as I’ve finished scrolling through Instagram, closing Instagram and then deciding to scroll through just one more time, i’ll head through to the bathroom and start my routine.
I always start with my teeth as it helps to wake me up and make me feel fresh and clean and then I move onto skincare…
In the mornings I will only cleanse my face once and I will always use my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. It is one of my all-time favourites and always leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and replenished.
When cleansing my face I will always apply a small amount of product to my Dry face and massage in, adding a little bit of water if it needs loosening. I will then wash off the product with a warm face cloth.
Do not soak your cloth in a full skink, you’ll just be washing your face with dirty water. Always use fresh running water to rinse your cloth
I am currently using the Mario Badescu Glycolic acid Toner, as I wanted to try something new after using the Pixi glow tonic for so long. I really like how this toner makes my skin feel after I’ve used it, however, its nothing compared to the glow of the Pixi toner. Glycolic acid is great for exfoliating, and treating acne and blackheads.
I will apply this to a cotton pad and wipe across my still damp face, trying to lock as much moisture in as possible. My skin always feels so fresh after applying a toner.
Now I’m not going to lie to you, I’m really struggling on the serum/ face oil front. I can’t seem to find a budget-friendly oil that I want to shout off the rooftops about. I do love the Elizabeth Arden Miracle Oil if my skin is feeling really dry and dehydrated, and I will sometimes use the Nip and Fab dragons blood serum. Now that we are coming into the Autumn/Winter seasons I really need to step this up and find one that I really love.
……And last but certainly not least, we have moisturizer. My all time ride or die moisturizer is the Clinique dramatically different. I have been using this since I was about thirteen years old when I first started my skin care regime and I have never looked back. It is lightweight, soft, creamy and absorbs into the skin beautifully and it will take an amazing superhero product to ever make me stray from the Clinique path.
…..So there you have it that’s my current skin care routine. I don’t really play around with my skincare as once I’ve found something that works for me I will usually stick with it. I am incredibly lucky that I have always had really good skin and never had any major problems I have noticed that as I have gotten older my skin has changed slightly. I used to have very dry skin and now I have more of a combination skin. I have started using acids on my skin now I’m older and have found that they really help balance my skin out by reducing oil build up in certain areas but also not drying out my face. Gentle acids should not be something you are afraid of as they are so helpful in your skincare routine.
