Ever since I can remember my mum has always told me to look after my skin. From my early teens I have been cleansing, toning and moisturising and thankfully I never got the dreaded teenage spotty skin. This isn’t to say I don’t ever get spots though because I do, in the most annoying places but I feel I now have a routine that prevents major breakouts.
I start the day by washing my face with just warm water and soap. This not only wakes me up but gives my skin a little natural moisture boost. I follow with Nivea Rich Daily Moisturiser Cream for Dry/Sensitive skin. I am prone to dry skin so feel this product helps to minimise the patches of flakiness, smells divine too.
This is the point I usually make and eat dinner and watch a bit of TV etc. I then will either have a long and relaxing bath or a hot shower, and it is during this time that I’d use a face wash/scrub. At the moment I’m using Nivea, and I absolutely love it. It really is creamy and smells so clean, a little goes a long way!
I finish my facial routine with a little eye gel – I’m preparing for the wrinkles! I dab little squirts of the Cucumber Eye Gel from Boots around the eye area, and it is easily absorbed. The soothing cucumber essence helps to hydrate the skin and reduce puffiness.
That’s it! Seems like a lot but once you get into the routine and have been doing it for a little while it becomes second nature. What are your facial product must haves?
