Over the years I’ve managed to get my skincare products down to a very tight edit. I make the effort to really look after my skin but I also don’t have all the time in the world to apply a million and one products. I’ve found these skincare products really work for me and so far I’ve found it keeps my skin in great condition and I also don’t have to spend hours on my routine.
I always cleanse my skin twice a day. I use Cosmedix Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser in the shower in the morning, then I use it at night before I go to bed. I always get all my makeup off before I cleanse and I normally just use a makeup wipe or a makeup remover from MAC or Napoleon. I cleanse twice – once to get all the makeup off and a second time just to clean my face.
In the morning I use a moisturiser called Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D. It has the added bonus of having an SPF for extra skin protection. Plus it’s tinted so if I don’t need much coverage I just use it on its own.
At night I skip the moisturiser and use an Aspect face serum instead as I find it’s really nourishing. After I moisturise I apply an eye cream. I’m all about an eye cream! I think it’s really important to get into the habit of applying one as the skin around your eyes doesn’t get much moisture so it’s important to apply an eye cream to hydrate the area. I do this before I go to bed.
Occasionally I’ll apply an Cosmedix exfoliating mask to give my skin a more thorough cleanse and get rid of any dead skin. And I always moisturise my body with Nivea skin lotion. And that’s it – nice and simple!
