I would say my skincare routine is pretty consistent, I only really change it up a few times a year, either when the seasons are changing, a particular product isn’t working for my skin or if my skin needs some help in a particular area, for example if it’s too oily or too dry. I don’t like playing with lots at products at one time as I never know how my skin will take to certain ingredients, but I’ve currently got a nice and easy morning routine, which has been working rather well for me lately.

CLEANSER: I have been pretty consistent when it comes to cleansers, as I only really swap between a handful of them, but I’ve really been enjoying The Body Shop Seaweed Cleanser which thoroughly cleanses my skin and I like the way it lathes on my face. As it’s a seaweed cleanser, it’s really cooling and refreshing on may face, particularly on those early mornings!

TONER: I recently picked up a new product from the Boots Botanics range, in the form of the Botanics All Bright Toner as I really get on well with their clay mask from the Botanics range. This has brightening hibiscus and is meant to make your skin look brighter and less dull. I personally haven’t found much difference in the brightness of my skin, but it’s still a pretty good toner (for the price anyway) and preps my skin for the next step in my skincare routine.

PADS: Another new addition to my skincare routine is the Nip + Fab Dragons Blood Cleansing Pads, which are great to boost hydration and plumpness back into my skin, which is pretty lackluster. I just apply the pad all over my face and it also cleanses my skin, that one step further.

FACIAL OIL: I’ve switched the serums, for a facial oil to see if it makes a difference to my skin. I’ve been using the Pixi Rose Oil Blend* which also helps with adding extra hydration into my skin and makes my skin appear nice and glowing. This is also just a nice step to add into my skincare routine as a little facial massage, each morning.

MOISTURISER: As I have extremely dehydrated skin, I have been on the hunt for a really hydrating moisturiser. In the past I’ve used night time moisturiser, during the day for the added thickness and hydration. I’ve finally found one that really works for me. The E45 cream is the best that I’ve found so far. This is the most hydrating moisturiser that I have ever used and it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the majority of the day and consequently has made my makeup sit a lot better on my skin.

LIP BALM: I always finish off my skincare routine with applying lip balm to keep my lips hydrated and nourished. My go to lip balm is the Nuxe Reve De Miel, which is a thick lip balm, which acts as a lip balm and treatment all in one. It also preps my lips for when I do my makeup.
