In September I shared my updated evening skincare routine and I thought it was about time I shared my morning one too! As you know if you have been reading my posts, over the past few months I have really stripped my skincare back to basics. I’ve been concentrating more on keeping control of my clear skin rather than trying to achieve the impossible (looking like a Snapchat filter). So let’s get into it…
Oh Hydromol, I love you. You are so strange but so good. I shower at night so in the morning I start off by washing my face. I use Hydromol as a soap substitute in the shower but it’s also a great facial cleanser for super dry skin. I wet my face, take around a £2 coins worth of Hydromol in my hand, add a bit of water and rub my hands together to make a creamy cleanser. I rub it all over my face, really concentrating on any problematic areas and then slowly pat it off with a soft sponge or muslin cloth. I will then pat my face dry with a towel and get ready for the next step.
- Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser.
Baby skincare products are always the best for super sensitive skin! If you would have told me 6 months ago that I use a lotion as my daily moisturiser I would have laughed! My face is soooo dry that I always thought only the really thick and heavy creams would work…not any more! I apply about half a pump or so of this cream all I’ve my face and neck, concentrating on the places that need it the most and then I let it sink in for a minute.
- Egyptian Magic.
I know I rave about this cream a lot but seriously, it’s amazing! I only apply about a pea sized bit in the mornings because my face is already quite hydrated from the Hydromol and Childs Farm but I love the glow it gives to my skin and it’s also a bit of added protection throughout the day against this cold weather! After I have patted my pea sized amount into my skin I apply my makeup like normal.
These three steps are really working for me at the minute, especially along side my evening routine. My skin feels soft, plump and at the minute (touch wood) it’s free of any redness and dry patches! I feels hydrated throughout the day and the lightness of the Childs Farm moisturiser means my skin can breathe and doesn’t get congested like it used to. I’m loving it and I’m feeling really content with my skin at the moment!
