My Everyday Skincare Routine

 

Hello my lovelies, so today I thought I would talk you through my current everyday skincare routine! As you will see I don’t tend to go for the high end/luxury skincare products. As a 22 year old I personally don’t feel that it’s necessary to spend hundreds on skincare although I am a huge believer that looking after your skin in your younger years will majorly benefit you as you age.

I have tested/tried various products over the last 7 years or so and I can honestly say that my current routine has been my best yet, I have used these products for the last 3 months and I’ve seen a huge difference in my skin.

Just a bit of an insight to my skin, I usually have extremely dry and sensitive skin however I have noticed recently that I’m getting oily in my T-zone as the day goes on. So my skin type isn’t particularly straight forward. I am extremely lucky as I don’t tend to break out or get bad spots, I find I’ll only get the odd occasional spot if I’ve either been drinking alcohol or the week before ‘that time of the month’.

Now I’m no beauty expert so I’m not saying that the routine I follow is by the book but this is what works best for me!

At the end of each day when I get in from work I will head straight to my beauty box in the bathroom to get my makeup off. I begin by grabbing the Garnier Micellar Gentle Cleansing Wipes to focus on removing my mascara and eyeliner. I will then grab a couple of cotton wool pads and my favourites are these Oval Double Faced pads from Tesco and my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove the rest of the makeup.

Then to wash my face I use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash, I love this as it leaves my skin squeaky clean. Now I only use a face scrub every other day as my skin is already quite sensitive and sometimes this can dry it out even more. But when I have any blemishes or need to cleanse my pores I will always use the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Scrub (I love the smell of this too).

Once I have rinsed off this product and patted my skin dry I will then apply the No.7 Soft & Soothed Toner which I have used religiously for years now and I love how soft and smooth it leaves my skin feeling.  To moisturise my skin I then use the No.7 Beautiful Skin Moisturiser for Dry Skin , this is another product that I started using a few years ago and haven’t looked back since, I love the smell and texture and the way my skin feels when I wake up in the morning.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and I’d love to know what skincare products you swear by too!!!
