I think a write-up about daily cleansing is a great way to start the blog as it is very important! In years to come we all want to have healthy and youthful looking skin and that is why you should set up a daily routine. I’m going to tell you about my routine and what products I find to be useful.
First I start by taking off my make up using Garnier Simply Essentials 2 in 1 Makeup remover. This remover is wonderful for taking off stubborn make up and its designed for those with sensitive skin. The one problem I have with it is that the product leaves your face feeling a tad bit greasy so I’ll use a Simple Cleansing Facial Wipe to remove the grease.
Next its time for the cleanser. I know a lot of people like to use a cleansing wash but I prefer to use a cleansing cream daily and use an exfoliating face scrub a few times a week in the shower. The cleansing cream I use is Ponds Cold Cream. The smell, the texture and the results are amazing. I will rub the cream all over my face and neck and leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes and then I will get a hot flannel and hold it to my face for 5 minutes then wipe away the cream.
The next stage is toning. I two different toners; Clean and Clear Deep Cleansing Toner for Sensitive Skin and Pharmacy Brand Rose Water. I only use the clean and clear product when my face is having the cousins over (ie spots). If you use this product all the time your skin will be left dry so only use it when you’re having a break out or even limit it to dabbing it on spots/black head prone areas. Rose water was something my mother told me about, it smells BEAUTIFUL and leaves my skin feeling lovely! It doesn’t cost too much and lasts a good while!
and finally time to moisturise. Before I go near a facial moisturiser I’ll dab a small bit of Derma Eye Cream around my eyes. While I’m at home I don’t have my usual stock of beauty products so the moisturiser I’m using at the moment is Nivea Soft and you can use it on your face, body and hands. This is just a basic cream and is made for a number of uses and it is actually better than a lot of top creams! It is quick drying (fierce handy for night cleansing) and leaves your face feeling as soft as a baby’s bottom! When I’m in London I’ll use Lacura Q10 night cream although it doesn’t have the same quick drying effect it does leave your face feeling soft.
