Wearing makeup everyday means the cleansing part of my routine is important. Getting all my makeup off and having a clean face is really integrual to getting the most out of the ingredients the products hold. We pay so much for the products we use it’s important we get the very best out of them.
I start be taking my makeup off, my go to is Clinique Take the Day Off balm. It’s a solid balm that you apply straight to dry skin. It then melts in to a liquid balm and dissolves all the makeup and grime of the day. I then use a fresh hot flannel to take it off. Next is my proper double cleanse, currently my go to is the very luxurious Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser. It’s a stunningly beautiful cleanser, the scent is subtle but the impact and quality is amazing. I massage it in to my face which is like having a mini facial at home. I then got cloth it off. To finish this part of the routine I sweep over my Pixi Glow Tonic acid toner.
Having dehydrated skin means I need moisture and lots of it. For the best results I layer. First a spritz of Caudalie Beauty Elixir. A fine spritz that smells amazing… I literally go through this stuff like it’s running out…!!
Current Serum is Lancôme Genifique. A fabulous Serum that penetrates deep in to the lower layers of my skin.
The 1st step in every beauty routine, Advanced Génifique Serum targets the 10 key signs of youthful-looking skin: texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, even skin tone, clarity.
Next Eye cream. Eye cream has been a recent discovery mainly because I’m trying to avoid eye wrinkles but also because I’ve noticed as I have got a bit older my delicate skin below my eyes becoming dry. Clinique All About Eyes is my product of choice. It’s lightweight and has a creamy gel type consistency that absorbs really well.
Finally my moisturiser for the night time is Origins Make a Difference Night. A rich moisturisers that does a great job of softening and hydrating my skin.
Here’s how Orgins describe it…
At night, skin loses more moisture and its barrier is more vulnerable. Our ultra-rich overnight cream is fortified with Rose of Jericho plus Lychee, Watermelon and Rhodocrosite to help create a reservoir to help replenish surface moisture lost after dark. Plus our super hydrating formula helps lock in surface moisture and support skin’s natural nighttime self-repair ability. Skin looks radiant. Awakens refreshed, supple and comfortably hydrated.
