Today I am going to share my skincare routine for the summer.
To begin with I like to use the Soap & Glory Micellar water to remove the excess bulk of my make up. I then use the Boots Botanics eye make up remover to remove my eye make up, this even removes waterproof mascara! To give my skin a good cleanse I like to apply my face wash, this months is the Nivea Refreshing Face Wash Gel which actually smells really good. I apply this to my Clarisonic and clean my face. I love using my Clarisonic as I know it is giving my skin a deep clean. I don’t use my Clarisonic every day as it is very harsh on your skin, so on the other days I like to the little pink silicone brush which gives a soft clean but still as effective. This was £1 from Primark!
After washing my face I like to use a scrub a couple of times a week. My go to scrubs are from Lush, however I am running really low and need to go and buy some more. I love Dark Angels as its a black charchoal cleanser scrub and removes excess oil and dirt from your skin and leaves your face feeling so soft! I also love Ocean Salt as this just reminds me of being on a beach every time I use it. This one is a bit more harsher on your skin as it has the sea salt in it, but it also has avocado oil so it leaves your skin really soft.
Ofcourse my skincare routine would not be complete with a face mask or pamper session a couple of times a week. I love using face masks, they are my weakness. My favourites at he minute are the one from Superdrug. I like to use a detoxifying one and also a vitamin e mask. I also love to use the 7th Heaven masks once in a while or while I am travelling as I love these. Once a month I will also use a pore strip on my nose to unclog and pores.
I then like to switch between using the Antibacterial cleanser and the Simple purifying cleanser to refresh my skin. I then spritz some Vitamim E toning most from Superdrug to hydrate my skin.
My moisturising routine switches every night. Some night so will use the vitamin e leave on moisture mask from Superdrug which is amazing and is only £2.99 and lasts for ages! Other days I like to use the Vitamim e serum followed by an eye cream and moisturiser. Before I got bed I like to use some rose hip oil which is the newest addiction to my skin care routine. This is supposed to help heal spots, scars, dark spots and so far I think it is working.
So there you have it my very long skin care routine, I love doing this routine as much as I love doing my make up everyday. Nothing is better than having a little pamper.
