Simplified Skincare.

Although I love to watch YouTube videos of my favourite Beauty Guru's talking all things skincare, I must admit that my own skincare regime is terribly simple, even boring if i'm honest. My skin isn't very problem prone, but more so just dry. Very dry, i'm talking Sahara desert dry, so all my skincare efforts are put into making sure I don't resemble a leather bag in the next couple of years and desperately keeping the ashy faced look at bay.

I split my products into Cleansers/Make up removers, Serums, Day Creams and Night Creams. As a Make up remover, I swear by L'oreal's Micellar Water, it's affordable, moisturising and it does it's job and more. It removes even the cakiest of my makeup and because of it's efficeincy i've actually grown to enjoy this process of my evening routine! As a cleansing balm for a more heavy duty clean, I use Ultrabland by Lush, I've been using this for the past two years and it's a firm staple in my skincare collection, though if you have oily skin you might want to give this a miss because it more of an oily balm than anything, but if in doubt ask Lush for a sample, they're awesome with letting you try before you buy!

For a serum, I use the infamous Hydraluron Moisture Booster. Now I have a love hate relationship with  this product because it's bloody expensive but it does it's job flawlessly. It improves elasticity and it leaves my skin looking smoother than a baby's bottom after i've used it.

Now it's time for moisturisers, my favourite! I use Nivea's Pure & Natural Soothing Day Cream as a day moisturiser as it's light, moisturises well and leaves my face smelling wonderful! Nexrastore's Rose, Ginseng and Jojoba Night Cream is perfect if you're like me and wake up with dehydrated skin. Slather it on before bed after cleansing and you wake up with soft smooth skin, it also smells like rosewater, a scent that reminds me of my childhood which is good.

Hope this post has helped! I know some people have asked me about what i do in terms of skincare but this is literally it! I also drink Green tea by the bucket load and try to eat as healthily as possible if i can.


P.S. I'm away on holiday at the moment (Expect spam of Food and OOTD posts!), I promise to reply to all comments upon my return! Hope you're all having a fab week!

  1. I feel like most people who show their skin care regimen use too many products. I use Cetaphil, a gentle cleanser, a Neutrogena under eye cream and a facial moisturizer, and I rarely get spots. I used to have a long list of products, but I changed it up and started to see less and less spots.

    There is nothing wrong with a simple routine, as long as it works!
