I’m probably the only blogger who has never written a post about their skincare routine and that was mainly because I never really had much of a skincare routine up until now.
Lately I have realised that being twenty meant throwing out my simple moisturiser and cleanser and transition over to using more of an expensive brand as my skin is older now and I need to start looking after it more by using better skincare. Even though I haven’t perfected a skincare routine like most bloggers I have been trying out some new skincare products. These products have definitely made a good impact on my skin since using them and today I am going to share with you all my holy grail products that keep my skin clear.
- Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
I’ve been using this cleanser for the past three months now and I am obsessed! Before I used to use the garnier miscellar water but it left my skin feeling so dry. Whereas in this cleanser the Calming Balm Mint and Lavender extracts soothe the skin, while natural Quillaja Saponaria gently foams away toxins and debris. It washes away impurities without stripping or drying which is a plus for me. I only use this to take my makeup off as I am just not one to cleanse every morning I just don’t have the time with running for the bus to college lol!
2. The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA
Honestly never used a serum before but I noticed that my skin was breaking out a good bit so I decided to purchase this serum as it reduces the looks of spots and hyper-pigmentation. Within two weeks I saw a difference in my skin as it cleared up so much. I only use this now when my skin starts to show signs of a breakout and I apply it before applying my moisturiser.
3. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
I’ve only recently started to use this but so far so good! The oil is rich in fatty acids, vitamins and carotenes, which leave the skin moisturised and nourished. I use this every second night before I go to bed and there’s no need to apply your moisturiser with it.
4. Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturiser
This is a lactic acid infused cream for combination-dry skin. I’ve been using this moisturiser for a couple of weeks now twice a day once in the morning and once at night. It hasn’t irritated my skin at all which is great because most moisturisers I use tend to do that. It always makes my skin feel so moisturised and it’s super lightweight which is what I love.
5. Glamglow Gravity Mud Mask
Literally obsessed with this mask! The mask firms your skin leaving it feeling tighter and not to mention changes colour from white to chrome. It’s also the most satisfying feeling ever peeling it off my face lol! I use this about once a week, every fortnight.
