MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

I have never really been one for a skincare routine. I blame my mum, she used to throw a bit of baby lotion to her face, then she went with nothing and now she just wears a pea sized amount of simple every day.

I then went away to Uganda and was given 786253 different samples to take with me, which was about the only thing I could do when the electricity went off. Which got me a little more obsessed with what I would put on my face. So after a year, I have finally got myself a routine that I plan to stick with.

In the mornings, I usually have little to no time so I didn’t want to have a super intense routine. Therefore a simple cleanser, toner, moisturiser and eye-cream goes perfectly with my 10 minute make-up routine.

I use the face wash every three or four days as a mask. A silly, but important, tip is to only use a mask or exfoliation every 3 to 5 days to ensure you don’t wash away any natural oils – otherwise your face is just going to break out or become crazy dry.

My cleanser, toner and moisturisers are for everyday use. The creams are both super light and were gifted from the event I attended a week ago. I have to admit, I got a Kiehl’s toner as well but it caused break out and made my face feel super sticky.
