Hi guys! After posting my Bare Minerals post, I said that I would blog about my skincare routine. I have combination skin that is both oily and dry at the same time, so if anyone has problematic or sensitive skin, this is a great skincare routine to try out.
When I wake up the first thing I do for my morning skincare routine is use the Ultrabland cleanser from Lush. I use a small amount of this cleanser, apply the cream to my face and then I soak a cotton pad in warm water and wipe away the cream.
After applying the Ultrabland cleanser I then spray 5-6 sprays of the Breath Of Fresh Air facial toner from Lush into my hands and apply it to my face to close my pores. Once this has dried I apply the facial moisturiser Celestial from Lush all over my face, I only use a small amount.
For my evening skincare routine, I always start by removing my make up with a Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipe. I then twice a week use an exfoliating facial scrub in the botanics range from Boots which I apply to my face and then wipe off with a cotton pad soaked in warm water. After I exfoliate (or after I use the facial wipe) I apply the exact same products as I use in the morning, in the same order.
If you suffer from acne or have very oily skin, another way to reduce this is to not eat greasy foods like crisps/chips and to make sure that you drink a good amount of water each day.
