There is never a real perfect skin care routine in which everyone can follow. This is because everyones skin is different. Some skin types are more oily, some are more dry and some are more flaky. Skin can also differ due to age, gender or the kind of lifestyle you have. Therefore, some things are out of your hands and somethings in your daily day to day life can be changed to accommodate for healthier skin. So I thought i’d talk about my daily healthy skincare routine and what I do to help my skin look as good as possible.
So my skin can get quite dry but somedays it can get very oily. So it’s finding the perfect balance of products that can cater to when my skin is in one of them two stages. So when my skin is dry these are some of the steps I take and products I use to improve my dryness.
- Wash your face with WARM water, not boiling hot. I find and it’s been proven that boiling hot water can damage skin if used on a daily basis.
- After this I would apply a small amount of cleanser to your face and wash gently to prevent irritation. I’ve tried many different cleanser’s before but my personal two favourites are Bulldog Skincare’s Original Face Scrub and AvaJ’s Carbo Carbonis Face Wash. I usually use the face scrub on a every other day basis due to the exfoliating side of the scrub which can irritate my skin if used daily. However, the Carbo Carbonis Face Wash is great for a daily wash. I use the smallest amount possible as it’s quite a thick product.
- After that I dry my face straight away with a dry towel and apply a moisturiser that doesn’t include any fragrance. That’s why I use Simple’s ‘Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser’. Simple’s products are perfect for anyone with sensitive skin, and for anyone with dry skin as all their products are rich. Natural moisture escapes the skin if you take a while to apply the moisturiser after washing therefore be sure to be quick on applying the moisturiser.
- After this I apply one of my new favourite products, AvaJ’s ‘Mr Bright Eyes’ which helps reduce dark circles and add moisture to the under eye area. This is something I really struggle with, so this product is a godsend for me.
These products are all affordable and genuinely help me so much in my daily healthy skincare routine. I’ve included the links below incase you want to have a little look.
