my skincare routine

Skincare is something I'm currently trying to get more into more as only a year ago I did nothing to my skin (Shock!) I also suffer from an acne but recently in the past few months it's improved massively, I think my skincare routine has played a big part in that. I also have quite oily skin (mostly in my T-zone) but in some places (chin and nose) I suffer from dry skin. I have quite a lot of drugstore products in my skincare routine.

Morning: My morning skincare routine is quite simple and quick for in the mornings when I'm running late for school. After waking up and realizing I've got 5 minutes to get ready. I will start off by washing my face using FaceB4 face wash then apply the FaceB4 serum. These products have helped my acne massively they fight the anti-bacteria in my skin that causes them annoying spots, applied twice a day they work together like a dream team. Next, I'll add my spot treatment, LUSH Grease Lightning this really helps them massive spots that just appear randomly, just dap a small amount of gel onto them and they have gone in days. Finally, before my makeup is applied I moisturizer with The Body Shop moisture cream, sadly this doesn't have SPF.

Evening: In the evenings I have to admit I do use more products than in the morning. First, I'll start off by removing my makeup from the day with Bioderma micellar water and a cotton pad. I love my Bioderma, it's really good for removing my makeup and including waterproof mascara and eyeliner, it's also very gentle to my skin. Next, I will use my FaceB4 face wash then have a quick refreshing spray of LUSH tea tree water it just get's the extra dirt off my face that has escaped the previous two steps. The next steps are the same as the morning but I have added in a Botanics refreshing eye roll-on. Again I'll apply my FaceB4 serum and LUSH grease lightning spot treatment. Finally, moisturize with The Body Shop moisture cream. Now time for bed!

Now and then: I'll have a paper night, paint my nails and apply a facemask, my favourite are the ones from LUSH especially Cupcake, I also like Cosmetic Warrior. Cosmetic Warrior doesn't smell the best but it does do wonders for your skin, it's made from tea tree, honey, grapes, and garlic, which really help your trouble spots and deep cleanse your skin. Cupcake which is actually made from cocoa powder and vanilla is great for 'teenage skin' oily and acne prone. Every now and then I feel like my skin needs a deeper cleanse, I use the hot cloth cleanser from Superdrug. My skin is super soft after I use this. I also exfoliate my skin twice a week with St. Ives blemish fighting scrub, which is really good to get the dry skin off my face. I tend to use these products once or twice a week.

What's your favourite skincare product?
