I stick to a strict skincare routine, morning and evening. So, I thought I’d share my morning skincare routine with you. My skin, at the moment, is quite troublesome, I have some blemishes and a very oily forehead and nose.
The first thing that I do is cleanse my skin to freshen my face up and make me feel awake. I will usually use the Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive Micellar Water or if I’m feeling a bit more motivated and have some energy I’ll go into my bathroom and do a hot cloth cleanse. I love using the No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser, it is so effective and feels so amazing first thing in the morning.
After I’ve cleansed and my face feels a lot cleaner, I’ll then go in with the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner on a cotton face pad. This tones, soothes and prepares my skin, I could not miss this step out as I feel like it leaves my skin so soft and ready for the day. I’ve only ever tried the Simple toner so it’d be interesting to branch out and try a different brand. The cotton pads that I use are Wilko’s Maxi Oval Dual-Faced Cotton Pads, they’re bigger than usual ones which is why they’re so good.
This is something relatively new to my routine but I then use a serum, the one that I use is the Superdrug Simply Pure Hydrating Serum. This makes such a difference to my complexion, especially on a morning, it makes me feel so much more radiant and glowey. If you’ve never tried a serum I’d definitely give it a go, especially this one which is so cheap! I really like to put this on without a moisturiser when I’m going to the gym as it makes my skin look so healthy.
I then use a moisturiser, the only that I’m currently using and have been for quite a while is the Garnier Moisture Bomb 3 in 1 Day Cream. This works wonders for me, it’s not greasy yet is so moisturising, hydrating and feels so lightweight. I also adore the smell of it, I blooming love the smell of pomegranate.
Finally, I apply the Superdrug Vitamin E Eye Cream under my eyes and usually pat a little bit on my lid. I have tried quite an expensive eye cream and this one is so much better which I’m glad as it is only £3!! This isn’t greasy at all and really nourishes my under eye area, I feel like eye cream really makes a difference to how my concealer sits under my eyes which is why I cannot miss it out of my routine.
If I’m wearing makeup I will then apply my primer (Rimmel Match Perfection Fix & Perfect Pro Primer in 2) and makeup. If I’m leaving the house makeup free, that’ll be it. If I’m staying in I will probably dot Sudocrem on any blemishes or spots that I have and pray that nobody knocks on the door!
That’s it really, I try to keep this the same every morning but I sometimes opt for different things or replace a step with something else. Or mornings like today where I’ve lounged about in last nights pyjamas eating leftover pizza I haven’t done anything, oops!
Throughout the day I also like to use a mist to make my face feel refreshed and hydrated. The one that I use is the Superdrug Vitamin E Hydrating Mist, I love this skincare range and cannot recommend it enough!
