I’ve changed my skincare routine completely this year after feeling whatever I was using wasn’t working anymore and my skin is the best it’s been. For me skincare is more important than make up and I am doing all I can to achieve a glowing skin and then let it shine and only enhance it rather than painting a face on.
I believe the products I was using before were good, but you need to change your lotions and potions regularly otherwise your skin gets used to the products and same ingredients. I’ve discovered Kiehl’s which I’m really loving at the moment and definitely want to try more products but overall I decided to try things from different brands rather than getting everything from one.
Other than doing the routine that I’m going to tell you about, I exfoliate once or twice a week (I use St. Ives Apricot scrub which is great and not expensive) and about twice a week (when I remember) I put on a hydrating masque overnight instead of anything else. I’ve been testing these from Peter Thomas Roth and so far I’ve been quite impressed.
I use a Thermal cleansing balm from Omorovicza which is oil based and very good for dry skin.
In the morning after I’ve cleaned my face, I use serum from Kiehl’s (review here) and then depending on what I’m doing that day and what my face needs I either use the Kiehl’s Glow Formula skin hydrator (which gives a really nice glow) or if I’m going to be spending a lot of time outside I use the Avene SPF 50. I always always wear SPF 25 minimum. After that I use eye cream and then apply make up. The Avene cream makes your skin quite white so leave some time to soak it in, but I really like it and the protection it gives me, especially during this heatwave.
In the evening after cleansing my face I alternate between the Dior serum and Kiehl’s Midnight recovery concentrate (review of both here). I seriously love both. With the Midnight recovery you only need a tiny bit. I got this sample ages ago and have been using it regularly and still haven’t had to buy the big size but I definitely will. I use a moisturiser after the Dior serum or before the Midnight recovery. I usually do one evening one thing and alternate the next evening. Once every few days I use a hydrating masque instead. At the moment I’m using the This Works night cream which seem really nice on the skin but I think the serums are the most important .
Have you tried any of these? How do you find them?
Have a stylish day.
