My morning skincare routine13:41
I thought it was time to mix up my posts. I realized that I do a lot of reviews, but never actually mentioning my skincare routine. Since I pretty much use the same products every day, this is a good time to introduce you to what I put on in the morning.
This is my morning routine, after which I would put on makeup or just leave it there, if I don't intend on going anywhere.
I start with cleaning my face. My currant favorite face wash is this by Alverde Clear Wash Cream. This wash cream is made for the skin that has problems with pimples and blackheads. I wouldn't say that it prevents pimples, especially not does hormonal ones, because it doesn't. I love the fact that Alverde is healthier brand of skin care and I love that it doesn't irritate my skin at all. It cleans it, but doesn't leave it too dry or itchy. It's perfect for my combination to oily skin and sensitive enough. It's light brown color and a formula of a light cream. I actually really like the subtle smell, but can't describe of what it reminds me.
After washing, I apply my eye cream. I am 25 and I do start to notice my smile wrinkles, especially around the eyes. I use Bioderma Sensibio Eye Contour Gel. It's for sensitive and intolerant skin. My skin around the eyes is mostly sensitive and some what dry. Moisturizing around this area, doesn't hurt. It's a nice moisturizing cream, that's fairly light, but feels moisturizing. It definitely soothes my skin and it's a nice treatment after removing makeup. I am currently running out of it and looking for another one, with maybe a bit more anti wrinkle properties. Any suggestions? I would still like it too be sensitive enough. (Detailed review)
Then I go in with my serum / oils. I use Dr. Sheller Jojoba and Schisandra Intensive Serum. This is probably my favorite step. This is again for sensitive skin. It's pretty moisturizing, but soaks in really quickly, which is a dream. It doesn't feel greasy and it really soothes the skin. I love it, because I think this is the thing that keeps my irritations away and helps to boost up my skin the most. It also doesn't hurt that it's a natural skin care brand. (Detailed review)
The next step is applying face cream. I usually use moisturizing cream - Afrodita Chamomile Moisturizing Cream for Sensitive Skin. It's initially made for sensitive skin and I think it's also anti aging. This is again a natural brand from Slovenia. I like the light cream and the fact that it feels really soothing and light on the skin. It doesn't make my skin irritated and most of the heavily perfumed and expensive cream, do. (Detaled review)
Another option that I use combined with this Afrodita cream or on it's own is La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+. I tend to use this, when my skin is acting out and I get pimples on most of my face. I either use this cream only on the areas that has pimples or I use it all over if they seem to be spreading all over my face. (Detailed review)
The last step is sunscreen if I'll go out or it it's sunny. I'm currently using La Roche-Posey Anthelios XL Fluid and absolutely love it. It's really liquid, easy to apply and it soaks into the skin extremely quickly. Plus it has an SPF of 50+, which is great. (Detailed review)
Hope you liked this kind of post. Maybe I'll do a night time skin care routine, which is a bit longer and contains more products.
What's your morning skin care routine?
