My Current Skincare Routine.

I have recently been really into my skincare so I thought I would do a post on it. I have pretty normal to dry skin with very few breakouts, I do however suffer from blocked pores. Ever since I have been doing this routine I have far fewer clogged pores and virtually no blackheads. It’s pretty time consuming but I love doing it as I find it relaxing after a hard day’s work.

Morning Step 1: I am always in a rush in the morning so I will just quickly freshen my face with a Simple wipe.

Morning Step 2: I apply a good layer of Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream. I find this is excellent under foundation, it keeps my skin looking radiant all day.

Morning Step 3: Makeup!

Evening Step 1: I use the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser and the muslin cloth that it comes with. I LOVE this cleanser. It gets rid of any flaky skin and cleanses deeply into pores. I love the creamy consistency and it smells really indulgent.

Evening Step 2: I use the Body Shop Aloe Toner to make sure that any trace of cleanser is removed and to get my skin ready for moisture. This toner isn’t drying at all because it doesn’t contain any alcohol, it never irritates my skin.

Evening Step 3: A thin layer of Superdrug Optimum Swiss Apple Serum. I find this makes my skin appear fresher and more radiant in the mornings. It feels really nurturing and smells lovely and fresh. This is a must for me in the winter because I get extremely dry patches, this keeps them at bay.

Evening Step 4: Superdrug Natural High Eye Cream. I have no other reason to use this other than I like it. It does keep my eyes feel comfortable and moisturised, plus I have noticed an improvement in my dark circles.

Evening Step 5: I use my Oilatum again. I will never use anything else I don’t think. Even better than my Embryolisse and Clinique Dramatically Different face creams.

That’s pretty much my daily skin care routine. I also use a facial peel by Soap & Glory once a week for a deeper exfoliation. The Fab Pore Facial Peel. This contains Salicylic acid which allows the dead skin cells to properly detach and reveal brighter fresher looking skin.
