My Skincare Routine

June 07, 2013

The above is what I am using on my face on a daily basis. There aren't many products, it's very simple and it has been working an absolute treat.

I use one of the large cotton pads from the Boots baby section (here) with some Bioderma Crealine H20 to remove my eye and face make-up - a first cleanse of my skin. Once I've taken off as much as I can I use the Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash - I simply massage it into my skin with some water and then rinse off. It smells of apricots which is always lovely.

After cleansing I use my Organic Surge Blissful Daily Moisturiser which I have been using for some time now and can't say enough good things. It is one of those very basic moisturisers in that it doesn't have a scent and is a very typical formula but that is what I like. It absorbs into my skin quickly but I can tell I've had a moisture injection. 

Finally I apply my Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair with my ring finger under my eyes. This has nearly run out which makes me sad as I really like it. I always find it hard to differentiate between eye creams but this is more of a cream and you only need the tiniest amount.

I have always been good about cleansing but moisturising and using eye cream has been more of an irregular part of my routine. I used to moisturise about 5 days a week but for the past year I have been making sure I do it every night, followed by applying my eye cream. This routine has become ingrained and I feel weird if I don't do these two steps. I've found that moisturising every day without fail has really helped the red marks left my spots and has helped them fade.

I have also been drinking far more water over the past few months as we had a bit of a health kick at work and decided to log how much we were drinking. I have been making a real effort to drink lots of water every day and I think this is the biggest reason why my skin has been so good lately. A real sign was when I had a busy couple of days at work and only had one glass a day- three spots popped up almost straightaway. Water is so key to good skin.

  2. I've recently realised the importance of moisturiser in helping spots heal quickly too! That's really interesting seeing the effect that water has had on your skin, I'll have to remember to drink up! xx
