Today I am going to show you my skincare routine. I have to say I am a little obsessed with skincare products so my routine never stays the same for that long but this one seems to be working quite well, it isn't perfect but I think I may be nearly there!
The first product in my skincare routine is Bioderma Sebium H2O which is specially formulated for those with oily skin or problematic skin. I use this to take off all of my makeup and it really does get every little bit!The reason why I love this product so much is because it is so quick and so easy because I only use at the most two cotton pads, one for my face and one for my eyes and you don't have the problem of getting face wash or soap in your eyes!I really do think that this product is worth the hype! It is so gentle and you don't feel that tightness like you do with other makeup remover products. Your skin feels soft and refreshed, the same feeling you get when you have washed your face but without all of the hassle.
The second product I use is the Vichy Normaderma Anti-imperfection Hydrating Care. I think I may have fallen in love with this product! It is so light but my skin feels nourished and soft. I never used to moisturise my skin because of the oiliness but even those with oily skin need to moisturise. The best thing to do if you have oily skin is choose a moisturiser that is light but still provides hydration, sometimes the problem that people have is that they strip their skin completely to get rid of the oil. Stop!That's bad!This can often cause the skin to over produce oil to compensate for the oil that has been stripped away. The good thing about this moisturiser is that it helps to target enlarged pores, blemishes, shine, residual marks and uneven skintone. That is why I love this product so much because it does so many things in one simple step!Whereas, in the past I have bought different lotions and potions to combat each individual problem, well now I don't have to after purchasing this! Yay!
The third product I use is a skintone corrector to help with slight pigmentation around my mouth, it is by the brand B and it is called the B. Even Skintone Corrector.I did actually buy this on a bit of a whim but I am actually quite pleased with the results, it has made a fair amount of difference to the way my skin looks, I do often use it all over my face and my skin in general does look much more even.
The fourth product is an eye cream which I don't really understand because it is more of a gel which I do actually prefer as I feel it is more refreshing. It helps to target dark circles, hydrate the eye area, brighten eye area and firm and smooth the eye area. I have noticed that my eyes look brighter and that they are more hydrated, but the thing I have noticed the most is the dark circles, they are so much better and I don't look tired any more,woo!
The last two products I don't use everyday as they are more like treatment masks. The first one is from Soap and Glory and it is called the 'Fab Pore 2 in 1 Facial Mask' which my first post on this blog was about. The second is the Laidbare 'For Richer For Porer' Pore Minimizer Facial Mask which contain rosewater, Japanese seaweed extract, kaolin clay, shea butter and liquorice. The liquorice helps to reduce inflammation, the kaolin clay helps to draw out impurities, the japanese seaweed extract helps to detoxify the skin and the shea butter helps to condition the skin and keep it hydrated. I try to alternate between the two just so then I'm not sticking to completely the same routine each time.
So, there is my skincare routine. I know it probably will have changed again in a few weeks time but for the moment I am quite happy with the results I am seeing from the products I am using. Now, I have to say just because they work for my skin it doesn't necessarily mean that they are going to work for your skin, it is all down to how your skin works and what your skin needs.
