Good morning, and happy Tuesday!
I've had quite a few people commenting on my skin recently, so I thought I would share my routine and some skincare tips.
Firstly, I wanted to share that although my skin is happy and healthy these days, I've had to deal with various skin concerns in the past - constant nasty breakouts, sensitivity, and eczema, and learned the best routine to keep it balanced.
Now the Elemis products I use won't be suited to everyone (we have a range of cleaners, toners and moisturisers for all skin types within the range). You may also prefer different consistencies and aromas. But the basic routine is perfect for anyone to keep the skin well looked after, healthy, and glowing.
Every morning and evening I cleanse with Elemis Pro Radiance Cream Cleanser and rinse of with warm water and a face cloth. I then tone with Ginseng Toner on a cotton pad. Then I gently dab Pro Collagen Eye Renewel under my eyes and around the outer edges with my ring fingers, followed by applying Pro Collagen Marine Cream on my face in gentle upwards motions and Pro Collagen Neck and Bust the same way on the décolleté and neck.
I find these moisturisers perfect for my skin as they are light and silky in consistency, so they hydrate my face to the ideal amount. The cleanser I use is great for all skin types and again, I find it nourishes and hydrates my skin giving it a glowing boost without being too rich.
Prior to applying makeup in the morning, I then apply Pro Radiance Flash Balm which gives a lovely glow and brightening effect and holds makeup in place well.
Once a week I use the Papaya Enzyme Peel exfoliator. Exfoliation is soooo important. This exfoliator is gorgeous and one of my favourites. It goes on like a mask and is left for 8 minutes as the fruit enzymes gently exfoliate leaving the skin super bright and smooth. This is perfect pre-date night or before a special occasion. It smells divine! I also use the Skin Buff exfoliator once or twice a week (I generally exfoliate every 2-3 days), which is like a grittier scrub and is massaged in all over the face and then rinsed off. Again, this leaves the skin smooth and invigorated. Exfoliating helps to get rid of dead skin cells which means you get better results from your moisturising products and they skin into the skin a lot better. It also increase blood circulation to her achieve healthy glowing skin, minimises pores and reduces breakouts. It also promotes cell renewal which helps to give a more youthful appearance! Whoop whoop!
A couple of times a week I will use a face mask after exfoliating. At the moment I am use Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask which is super nourishing for the skin. Again, helps give that hydrated and healthy glow, and keeps skin soft and supple.
So that's my skincare routine which I know helps promote super healthy glowing skin. Along with my skincare routine, I have been drinking plenty of water, eating good amounts of fruit and veg in my diet, and have been taking supplements to support skin and body.
I am currently taking Vitamin C (heals skin, boosts collagen, fights ageing), Folic Acid (produces and maintains new cells), Vitamin E (protects the skin's cells, antioxidant, supports the immune system), Evening Primrose (soothes and supports the skin, promotes overall skin health), and Turmeric (anti-inflammatory and antioxidant). These supplements also offer many other benefits to the body and immune system.
I think chilling out with daily meditations, occasional walks out in the countryside, and the gym also help me to bring about calm and therefore try to keep stresses away from affecting the skin.
So, there you have it. This is how I look after my skin and why I've noticed a few people commenting on it.
