Skincare Routine


Hey everyone! 

So i'm back with a skin care routine, something which i've been wanting to do for a while but haven't got round to it. Yesterday, I tweeted whether you guys would like to see a 'makeup look' or 'skincare routine' and the results were 60% skincare routine so that's why I am posting this for today's post! 

Skincare is something which I feel very strongly about especially since my skin is more on the bad than the good side. I haven't actually ever had my skin professionally looked at to see what skin type I have but I am pretty sure that I know so i'm happy with this skincare routine for now. Everyone loves having the clearest skin that you can and by following a similar routine to this, it may just help a little or a lot!

If you're going to have a specific skincare routine, it is so important that you stick to it for a month or two to check that it is right for your skin. If you are not seeing improvements it may be worth changing a few products or adding in a few. I'm not going to pretend that these products work wonders for my skin as i'm still looking for something that will work wonders as I do have problem skin!

My skin type is oily and I have the most spots on my cheeks and chin and some on my forehead. I find that the week leading up to my period and the week i'm on are a lot worse and my skin recovers in the other two weeks so half the time it's alright and half it's awful! Most of my spots are actually under the skin and kind of scars yet a few are white headed ones. I'm probably making it sound a little over the top but I find that it's better to write exactly how it is than saying I have perfect skin, which I obvs don't!

So, enough rambling... Lets get to it.




I've honestly been using this for over a year now! I used to chop and change my face wash all the time but this one is definately one i'm in love with at the moment. I've noticed that when I massage it in for about two minutes I get much better results than just slapping it on and rinsing it. I would definately reccomend this for all skin types and sensitive skin.

Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser

I purchased this in a pack of tea tree products a year ago so I wasn't actually able to find it online but you probably still can purchase this in shop. I apply this every night before my moisturizer and I find that it helps my oily skin and dryes it a little.


Only a few months back have I started using a toner, and I definately love how this makes my skin feel. Toners are great for tightening your pores and I use this every morning before applying my moisturizer and makeup.



I don't often use this as it is quite harsh on the skin but if you are in need of a good exfoliator this is the only one that will work for my skin at the moment, just be sure to be gentle with it.




This facemask has to be one of my favourites at the moment. I usually use the packet masks and this one I much prefer as you can get so many uses out of it and it makes my skin even smoother. The only thing is that I find it takes a tiny bit longer to dry but it's totally worth it!


Honestly, when you have oily skin you do kind of think to stay away from moisturisers but this one is specifically oil free which makes it suitable for oily skin. It's so important to moisturize whatever skin type you have as it rehydrates the skin.


Derma Facial Wipes

I'm definitely not a huge fan of makeup wipes, in fact I pretty much hate them. Sometimes when I have to take off my makeup I look for a quick option which is always the makeup wipes. I've been looking everywhere for some that are gentler on the skin and these are as far as i've got so far as well as the simple ones. 




This is actually the bestest thing to remove your makeup with in the world! I've never turned to makeup wipes unless I haven't got any of this on me since discovering this. I've been using this for about half a year now and it's the best choice i've made skin care wise. It removes makeup so well and simply is the easiest and most effective way to remove it.



In the Winter months especially, I have a few days when my skin completely drys up like completely! I'm left with dry flaky skin which I don't even know why when I actually usually have really oily skin but yeah! This is the perfect remedy for dry skin and fixes it in the most 3 days. I would recommend this soo much if you suffer from dry skin as well as other problems like stretch marks.



I just want to add this to this post as the benefits do help your skin maintain its healthy glow. Foundations never great for your skin so I find that on normal days BB cream is much more effective as it gives a bit of coverage yet is great for your skin. The only problem is that you need a decent amount of concealer on top in order to cover troublesome skin.

So this is my day to day skin care routine. It may not be perfect for your skin but it's definately the outline of what you need and you can alter it to how your skin reacts.

If you enjoyed please comment and share and i'll make sure to get back to you!

Q. What's your most effective skin care product?

Much Love,

Emily

  6. I am a bit worried about using make-up wipes , I remember when I got done my make up done professionally the makeup artist suggested not to use it and the same from my dermatologist, but then again I assume everyone skin reacts different to it! However, I do I am a HUGE advocate for Biooil soooo goood!!! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I actually don't do very well with the simple face wash, it broke me out like crazy! I'm sure it works wonders for you and loads of other people though! I've been looking for a new moisturiser recently so i really want to give that clean and clear one a go!
