My Morning Routine for August…

IMG_0909

It’s probably the same for you too, but my skin care routine does tend to change quite often and I don’t think that is a bad thing.  For the past month I have been using the same products quite consistently.  One reason being, that I have quite a lot of different products and I want to use some up so that I can move on to something new.

First thing I do when I wake up is to have a glass of water.  I feel I definitely need this as I am always thirsty and I feel it sets me up for the day ahead.

A single cleanse with THE BODY SHOP CAMOMILE SILKY CLEANSING OIL gets the ball rolling, and I am loving this cleanser.  It leaves the skin silky smooth and has a great smell.  I just massage into my face and remove with a warm, damp flannel.

Then I follow with the PIXI GLOW TONIC.  This is applied on a cotton pad and swept over the face. This is a product I can’t seem to stop using.  Having been informed of its existence by the wonderful Caroline Hirons, I haven’t been able change.  It is great if you have an outbreak as it seems to stop the spots in their tracks.  It is a gentle exfoliant that leave the skin healthy and glowing.  Just a reminder to anyone who feels like trying this, you most definitely need to use an SPF of 30 or more.

I then apply a few drops of FOREVER ALPHA-E FACTOR SKIN REPLENISHER.  This is another layer of moisture and nutrients – who doesn’t need that.

KIEHLS HYDRO-PLUMPING RE-TEXTURING SERUM CONCENTRATE a bit of a mouthful, but a beautiful serum to add even more moisture to the skin.  A very economical serum, as you only need one pump for every application.

IMG_0915As I am of the “mature” variety,  I find I can get a bit of dry skin around my eyes if I don’t use an eye cream.  Eye cream of the month is CLINIQUE’S PEP-START EYE CREAM, and this is easily absorbed and leaves the skin around the eyes plumped and hydrated.

Finally, the final layer of moisture is applied in the form of KIEHLS SUPER MULTI-CORRECTIVE CREAM with SPF 30.   This smells fantastic and is a very rich, smoothing moisturiser that is perfect for a mature skin.

So that’s the routine at the moment, but stayed tuned, because this can, and will change as I discover more products and try them out.

I hope you enjoyed this blog.  I would love to know if you have any recommendations for new products I could try out.

Enjoy your week and see you soon….xxxx
