Skin care routines are my absolute favourite because I love seeing how people get such flawless skin! I also find these types of posts very useful because I get to see how each product works especially if I’m curious about it! The products in this post are some that I’ve sworn by for years, alongside some newer finds that are still among my favourites.
First of all, I take my Garnier Micellar Water and apply a generous amount to a cotton pad before wiping away the makeup from my face. Sometimes this takes more than one cotton pad depending how much makeup I have on. This product feels so nice and cooling on the skin yet it removes literally everything. Even eye makeup. The only warning I’d give about this product is not to get it in your eyes. THIS BURNS.
Then I use my Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser to wash my face and access makeup remover off of my face. I’ve used this product since I was in grade 9 and I can’t see myself using anything else. Cleansers are so so important because they really get all the guck out of your pores that have been sitting there all day. This product is also great because it has salicylic acid which helps inflammation, swelling and redness.
After this step I usually use my Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment for any pesky spots that won’t go away. This is another product I’ve used since grade 7, its just so reliable. This spot treatment is great to use at night because of how much of a difference it makes. In just one night spots are a lot smaller and less red all without drying out my skin.
Finally I conclude my skin care routine at night by using the Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum a couple of times a week. I used this product a lot this winter, but I’ll probably switch to the Pixi Rose Oil Blend as I won’t need too much hydration in the warmer months. Serums are especially good if you have dry skin because they pack a lot of moisture in those tiny bottles!
Ending off my skin care routine every night, I turn to one of my favourite all time moisturizers that I’ve been using for over 10 years, and that my mother has used for 30 years. This is the Olay Active Hydrating Body Fluid Lotion. This stuff is so good and gentle on the skin all while preventing progressive wrinkles and such (cus who really wants wrinkles?!?).
These products are really my go to’s when it comes to my personal skin care routine. I’ve been using this combination of products since November last year. I find it so important to use face cleansers, spot treatments, serums, and face creams because taking care of your skin is important and will influence the way you age.
