I am really happy with my skin care routine at the moment – it’s been the best routine for making sure spots stay away, keeping my skin glowing and making my foundation apply better. I try to stick to it as much as possible, consistency is a great way of making sure your skin doesn’t break out – knowing your skin well is the best way to tailor a skincare routine to it.
My skin care routine is split into Daytime and Night time 😀
Firstly, I have to have moisturised lips using the Nivea moisturising cream – it’s a firm favourite and habit that I have inherited from my mum, we’ve always had a pot in our house since I was little!
Then I apply my eye cream which is the Body Shop Nutriganics Smoothing Eye Cream. This comes in a little pump dispenser, I love applying this to wake me up in the morning as it is feels cold when you smooth it on! I use my in finger to gently dab this in, then just let it sink in. After this I use the Body Shop Vitamin E Face mist and I spritz my face around 3 -4 times. This is just an extra layer of moisture as my skin is quite dry – it really needs as much moisture as it can get! I use the Benefit Total Moisture cream just incase I have any dry patches like around my nose or cheeks.
My main facial moisturiser of choice is the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief gel cream which is ALL THE MOISTURE. It’s so good, I am on my third (?) pot of this now – seriously it lasts for like 6 months at a time and I use it erryday. At this point, my skin has had enough time to let all the moisturiser sink before applying make up!
After an evening shower I use the Nivea Cream, apply the Nutriganics Eye Cream and then I usually mix a blob of the Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask and the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate together to kind of make a power night cream which is full of all the good stuff – this I do every few days rather than every day as I don’t want to use up my Kiehl’s all in one go! (is expense, yo).
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my newest (and best) skincare routine, have you used any of these products?
