THE SKINCARE ROUTINE. DAY JUNE TO AUGUST.


Oh goodness, it's the return of the skincare routine on the blog. Be warned, I'm an addict. I don't pretend to be any sort of expert when it comes to skincare but for me this works for me. My routine does change pretty much day to day. I try a lot of products for myself and the blog, which means that my product line up is forever getting bigger! This month has been crazy for me. My skin has suffered from lack of sleep, food, hydration and stress. I went back to what I know and I have kept my day time skincare simple - cleanse, tone, treatment, moisturiser and SPF. 

For cleansing, if I need a quick fix in the morning I like to use Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water c/o (£28.00 500ml) on a cotton pad. This water is simple, effective and hydrating. If I prefer a deeper cleanse I have gone back to Ren's Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth cleanser c/o (£16.00, 150ml), which is a cream based cleanser with a faint scent of rose. It's again a simple formula that melts away any dirt and grime on your skin and for a morning cleanse it really wakes me up. I love to remove it with a warm flannel.

As for toners, I like Liz Earle's Instant Skin Tonic c/o (£13.50, 200ml) with its gorgeous list of ingredients this free from nasties toner is light, smells delightful and pops the hydration straight back into your skin.  As i have had a few issues with spots over the last month i have been using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo treatment cream (£15.50, 40ml) that helps to calm down redness and treat uneven skin tone. I only use this around  my chin and nose, only the affected areas. Sometimes I like to pop on a little of Melvita's Plumping Radiance Duo, Floral Water and Rosehip Oil c/o (£25.00, 50ml) as Rosehip does help to fade scarring and every little helps in my eyes. As I'm talking eyes I am using Liz Earle Eye Repair (£14.75, 10ml) at the moment, which is a lovely light moisturiser, not too heavy but helps to brighten the eye area and get rid of those tired eyes.

Finally my two favs I have saved till last, Origins GinZing moisturiser (£23.00, 50ml) and La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF c/o (£16.50, 50ml). As summer moisturisers go, I had to treat myself to Origins GingZing moisture as not only does brighten my skin, it keeps my skin looking healthy and plump. I love this moisturisers gel like texture and it's amazing orange scent. Uplifting in the morning for sure. On top of my moisturiser I like to add in a daily SPF and La Roche Posay's Anthelios range really is the creme de la creme of sunscreen for your face. This light weight SPF feels soothing and leaves no greasiness on your skin at all, which is always a worry when I use SPF. I love this product and although it's slightly pricey it's worth every penny to protect your skin.

Keep an eye out for my night time routine that is coming your way soon! What are your favourite daily skincare favourites?
