Current Skincare Routine
Sunday, 17 May 2015
I keep my routine very simply, partly because i'm lazy, and partly because I feel it unnecessary to slather on a million products. So my routine is simple about staying clean and moisturised.
I like to start by using the Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, I simply apply this to dry skin and rub it in everywhere, even my eyes, it's incredible at breaking down all make up, even waterproof mascara. I then wipe it away with a warm wet cloth or flannel. It is really is that simple, other cleansers i've used in the past I will have wiped it away and find I need to have a second go at my eye make up to make sure it's all gone, not this! The camomile formula is beautifully gentle, and doesn't aggravate skin at all and i've got quite sensitive skin.
Although the Camomile Oil leaves no residue, I like to follow it with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. It's really refreshing and leaves my skin feeling extra clean and fresh. Again this is very gentle and cleanses beautifully without the need to rub at your skin. I've used others that feel a lot more abrasive, almost acidic, but this is wonderful and refreshing.
Firstly I start with my eyes, I've been using the Ren Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel, this goes very far, I use just one pump rub it between my two middle fingers and pat it around my eyes. It leaves my eyes feeling hydrated and refreshed. It's full of lovely ingredients that depuff, increase circulation, and reduce pigmentation and redness.
For the rest of my face I use the Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream, this is actually targetting anti ageing, now i'm only 22 so that's not my biggest concern. I have dry skin, and dry skin ages a lot quicker than oily skin, and you can never start too early right? Hydrated skin is happy skin, and this is fantastic. It's got a beautiful texture, almost that of a very thick gel, not sticky at all. It's easy to apply and very spreadable, It sinks in very quickly and offers very nourishing hydration. My skin has transformed since using it like no other moisturiser.
