Lately, my skin has been looking good, and while I am sure this is just a result of my drinking more water goal, I think it also has something to do with my new skincare routine. I haven't been doing anything to complex or complicated, nor spent a fortune on a skin product as I know that I would either forget or not use it. My skin isn't really problematic anyway, but can be a mixture of dry and oily, so I try to keep up with this skincare routine to keep it looking naturally healthy.
Evening: I will remove my days makeup either using my Simple wipes, or my Lush toner water to prevent spot breakouts due to makeup clogged up pores. Then, I will wash my face using really hot water and whatever facial soap I have on hand. At the moment, I am using Lush's Godmother as it has a gorgeous sweet fragrance.
Morning: I will do exactly the same as my evening routine, except I will moisturize my face using some Nivea moisturizer and a cotton pad. Then, I just spot apply my Clinique Anti-Blemish gel if any new spots or blackheads have developed. After that, I just apply my makeup which is really simple; concealer, eyeshadow, mascara, bronzer, and finish off with my Rimmel Clear Skin powder.
Extras: I always keep a pot or tube of lip-salve with me to prevent my lips from going chapped or dry. At the moment I am using my cherry Carmex lip-balm jar as once again, it has a gorgeous sweet fragrance of cherry sweets. Also, when I want to treat myself, I like to apply a facemask. At the moment it is Mask of Magnaminty, which is a lovely minty mask that works on removing spots and blackheads.
I know everyone's skin is different and while this may seem like a lot to you, or may seem very minimal, this works for my skin and is just the right amount, as me and my skin seem to be happy with it. Please notice I have used quite cheap products as I appreciate not everyone can afford the expensive high end products that will do just as good of a job as the cheaper products! What does your skincare routine look like, and is there any miracle products you have?
