Today I am sharing my current skincare routine and the products I have been loving keeping me hydrated this winter.
To remove the excess of my make up I like to go in with a Cleanser first, the Soap & Glory Cleanser is really soft on your skin but also great at removing face and eye make up. I then go in with a second cleaner to clean my skin and make sure all my the make up and dirt from the day of gone. My favourite at the minute is the Milky Jelly Cleanser by Glossier, I find this so soft on my skin also.
After cleansing (and masking) my go to toners are The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid toner and the Garnier rose toner. I love the Hyaluronic toner because it is a really gentle exfoliator and is great for getting rid of spots. The Garnier Skin Active Rose toner contains Salicylic Acid which is also great to battle spots, but what I love most about this one is that it is soothing.
A couple of times a week I like to use a mask, I like to use a variety of masks which do different things so my skin doesn’t get to overwhelmed and start to react badly. For moisture I love the Sukin Moisture Clay mask, this is applied on damp skin and add hydration without drying your skin out. Another moisture mask is by Garnier, I love their Moisture Bomb tissue mask, especially when my skin needs a boost!
I have also been loving the Aloe Pore Strips from Primark, for £1 you get 4 strips, I don’t always feel that the cheap strips are as effective but these ones truly are!
For when my skin needs an extra glow and a good scrub I pick the L’Oréal Pure Clay Mask Glow, this feels so lovely on my skin and when you wash it off it feels so great!
And finally is the AHA Peeling Solution from The Ordinary, this one is probably the scariest. It looks like blood when you apply it to your skin, and it tingles, you really need to be careful how long you need it on fr because it is quite intense.
As for serums and treatments I like to switch these up daily so they are not to harsh on my skin. Once a week I will use the Lactic Acid and Alpha Lipoic Acid from The Ordinary, these are quite strong so I tend to use these spread out. These are great at removing dead skin cells and renewing your skin making it glow from below. The other serum I use other 5 days is Hyaluronic Acid as this add lots of hydration and plumps the skin.
And finally for moisturiser, my current go to eye cream is the Revita Lift by L’Oréal followed my the Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Gel Mask by The Creme Shop.
In the mornings I like to keep it much more simpler by only using the basic products but still getting good results. I use the Philosophy Cleanser which has tiny scrubby beads to get rid of dead skin cells. I find this really handy in the mornings because it can rid of any treatments from the night before.
I then use the Botanical All Bright Brightening Toner which helps tighten pores and brighten skin so this is perfect for day time when you are not going to be wearing any make up buy want glowy skin.
A serum I like to use in the mornings is from Generation Skincare and it is a vitamin c serum but also contains Hyaluronic Acid which is really good for hydrating skin. It also smells of oranges which is really nice!
Lastly I finish with the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel. These has really helped my skin and is the perfect base for make up.
