My New Skin Care Routine!

Surprise my skin changed again!

Your body is constantly changing and you have to move with those changes. As I’ve gotten older my skin has been changing more towards the dry side, so I’ve been testing a few different things and fell in love with the one I’m about to share.

Before I was using Clinique 3 step system and it worked wonders for a bit but then I found it was starting to dry out my skin even more then it already was. Sephora thankfully had a ‘Sephora Favourites’ for dry skin and I decided to test it out since it has multiple brands to try at once. At the beginning I was skeptical because of my dry sensitive skin, I didn’t want to have a reaction to anything but I was proved wrong and these products work.

Cleanser

Before I was using Clinique Cleansing Brush with their cleanser but it was too much for me. Now I’m using Boscia Cleansing Gel, you can get this at Sephora for $37.00. This doesn’t have a scent and it has a calming feeling on your skin, it’s not too much but your skin feels clean after. This I find you most definitely need a moisturizer after but I also believe after every cleansing you need to add moisture.

Moisturizer

Before I was using the Clinique basic moisutrizer and eventually moved to a more hydrating one but still wasn’t seeing the results I wanted, now I use First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. This cream does wonders, it has a calming feeling, it’s not oily, doesn’t leave your face feeling like you have product all over it and it really is intense on hydrating. You can you this product all over your body as well, so if your elbows and knees are extremely dry just go ahead and throw this on them! The cream comes in different sizes 2oz is $15.00, 6oz is $37.00 and 8oz is $45.00 all at Sephora.

That’s it! Very simple which is what I think works best with my skin, even when I was younger all I did was wash and moisturize and that’s what seems to work. Remember everyone has different skin and somethings that work for me might work terribly on you. It’s definitely a trial and error process until you find what works well for you. Believe you will find it, if you ever get fed up go to your local Sephora and talk to someone who works there. Trust me they know their products and they will be able to help you!

Lets take care of our skin!

My Skin Care Routine

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had sensitive skin. I break out easy if I didn’t wash my face, using harsh soaps or face washes would burn my skin, the sun was a sure guarantee to burn my face (but that’s mostly because of my Welsh/Irish background) and then I found out I’m allergic to perfumes/smelly products. The search for the perfect face product seemed to be impossible.

My face took a toll with trial and error but one day my Mum came home with a product called Cetaphil and I never went back.

The Cetaphil line is very simple, soaps and lotions and I find that’s all you really need. I’m not the type of girl who wears a ton of makeup, I’d rather show my natural beauty and my freckles. To me people who don’t “have” freckles or cover them up just look freaky to me, I don’t mean to be rude but that’s just my opinion on it.

Lets get started into the actual routine, at night time I usually take off any make up I had on with whatever make up remover I’m using these days. After I wash my face with Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, you can use this bar for your face and entire body. Once I pat dry my face I use the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15. In my opinion all face lotions should have minimum SPF 15 in them, the sun is harsh and we need to protect ourselves.
Putting lotion on at night is important since it has more time to soak in and that’s when your body repairs itself, this includes putting lotion all over your body. Trust me, your skin will feel amazing.

In the morning, if I’m going to work I just splash some cold water on my face, since I work in a pool and will need to wash my face when I get home. If I’m going out though, I go through the same process as I do at night, wash and lotion.
Washing your face twice a day is max. for me, if you wash your face too much it’ll dry it out or worse make you completely break out; once in the morning and once at night.

There you have it. It not much but it works for my skin and my style of showing off your natural beauty. You are all beauty no matter what and no one should tell you otherwise.
