So here it is: my morning skincare routine. It's nothing special and relatively simple considering I adore skincare and have tons of products stocked up on shelves. But for daytime I like to keep things clean and simple, especially under makeup. My skin is combination (oily in the t-zone, normal on the cheeks) so products mustn't be greasy nor drying. I also suffer from blemishes and acne scars. Well, I won't rant on too long, here's my morning routine for skincare (expect one an evening edition coming soon!)...
Step 1: Cleanse: I received the Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Cleanser on my birthday a few weeks ago and have used it everyday since. It's just the perfect creamy cleanser that gets rid off all the impurities while leaving your skin fresh, bright, hydrated and calm. Bonus point: it smells amazing!
Step 2: Tone: Toner is often a step that many of us leave out or forget, but trust me it makes a world of a difference. Toner relieves the skin of any more impurities the cleanser may have left, and any cleanser residue that may clog pores. However, the Lush Tea Tree Water Toner Mist does a hell of a lot more; it's antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial. It is rich in vitamins and super kind to the skin in general. I seriously recommend.
Step 3: Serum: Another one that we all often leave out; but again, essential. Serums help protect the skin (from everything from pollution to makeup) and are formulated to penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver key ingredients. I love the Body Shop Aloe Protective Serum - it contains prebiotics to reinforce the skin's natural shield. Designed for sensitive skin, this product provides hydration without leaving your skin sticky or oily. A must-have for those with dry skin, optional for oily skin types.
Step 4: Moisturise: I can't get over how amazing the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is. It gently cleanses the skin while deeply hydrating and nourishing it. This is a makeup-artist's secret must-have in giving that model glow and I'd like to say I'm one-step there! This is also a makeup a primer but there isn't much it doesn't do! Can't recommend enough.
So there you have it! Hope you all enjoyed this post - thanks for reading!
