Following my Crystal Clear microdermabrasion review I wanted to share my daily skincare routine with you all.
To give you a little bit of background, I had some acne when I was in my teens, and what were spots back then have now become scars. They’re not horribly bad, but I still dream of having baby-like skin. You can still dream about the perfect skin when you are in your mid-late twenties, can’t you?
I have oily to combination skin so I try to avoid oily products and go for oil free/ sensitive skin ones that at the same time help me get rid of the acne scars.
- Removing makeup
I wear makeup every day: foundation, mascara, eyeliner, blusher, highlighter, etc. Therefore the first step in my skin care routine is remove all of my makeup. I use the B. Pure micellar water from Superdrug. It’s not the cheapest but it’s often on offer, which is convenient.
I normally use a big cotton pad that’s pre-soaked with micellar water.
My favourite cleanser is the Tea Tree Clearing Foaming Cleanser from The Body Shop, specially designed for blemished skin. It latest for ages and after using it my skin feels clean and fresh. From time to time I also use the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser but not every day.
I’ve only started using a toner recently. I had the Simple facial toner in my cabinet for ages so decided to give it a go. The results: amazing! It’s now a firm favourite in my daily skincare routine as I think is helping my face look nicer. If you are not a toner fan, I’d suggest trying it again!
After applying the toner I just leave my skin without anything else for a while. I make dinner, eat, watch TV, write a blog post… all those things that you do in the evenings after work.
Before going to bed I apply my Vichy Normaderm anti-blemish moisturiser with 3 drops of L’Oreal Paris extraordinary oil. I mix both things in my palm and then apply them. I do the same in the morning after showering and before applying my makeup. It’s an ideal makeup base!
- Tea tree oil on spots
I apply a drop of The Body Shop tea tree oil on spots whenever I get them (quite frequently lately L ). It helps to dry them out and prevent scaring, which is what exactly what I need.
