My skin is so unpredictable so when I find a skincare routine/products that I love, I usually stick with it for a ridiculously long time; especially now that the weather is warmer and my face needs a little extra tlc.
My current routine is one that I have been using for a few weeks and I feel like it has improved the texture of my skin and it doesn’t look as dull or lifeless as it used too.
First step is to go in with everyones love; micellar water. I honestly can’t remember what I used to do without this little gem in my life; well I do, I used makeup wipes, which just makes me cringe internally. I get a couple of cotton pads and gently wipe away all my make up and then go in with a second round to make sure I get as much off as possible.
The next step is my faaaavourite; cleanser. Now as you all know, because I bang on about it enough, my favourite cleaner is the hot cloth one from Aldi. I love how clean is makes my skin feel and it always surprises me how much make up comes off on the muslin cloth where the micellar water missed it. Some cleansers can be quite harsh for me as I have sensitive skin but I find that hot cloth ones are great as you only need a small amount and they are always full of such natural ingredients.
Once I have removed the cleanser, I then apply a generous layer of toner. If you read my April Favourites post, you will know that I have been loving the Eau Roma Water toner from Lush as it has rose water and lavender in it, which I think is just so soothing on the skin and leaves me feeling so calm and refreshed.
Lastly, the most important step, moisturiser. This is usually where I start having trouble because they either don’t moisturise my face enough and it still looks dry or it’s too heavy and makes me skin look oily and start to break out. The one I have been loving the most is actually from Boots’ own range and it is the cucumber daily moisturiser. I find that the cucumber really soothes my skin and I can always add more if I want more intense hydration which I usually do during the night.
What is you current skincare routine and what products have you been loving?
