Winter Skincare Edition

Monday, 7 December 2015

As the months change, so do our skincare routines. More moisturising and caring for the skin becomes embedded into our daily routines. This post includes my skincare routine as well as why I have chosen this specific routine from morning to evening. 
Morning Skincare Routine:
Recently, I have been very specific about my skincare routine as I do have sensitive skin, I have to be careful regarding the products I use on my face. For my sensitive skincare, I use some cold water on my face just because I am usually excessively tired when I wake up in the morning. To daily exfoliate, I use the St Ives Facial Scrub in Apricot. It has little beads inside which easily glide against your face without causing any spots or making your skin irritated. With this facial scrub, I always find my skin extremely soft every time and my spots vanish.
To take off my scrub, I use a warm wet flannel. I prefer using a flannel to take off my scrub. Moving on to moisturising, I use the Aveeno Daily Moisturiser. Made out of natural ingredients like oatmeal, this relieves dry skin and creates a lovely flawless base for my makeup. I love using this moisturiser so much, to be quite frank I don't know what I was doing before this. I currenly have 4 bottles waiting for me to open. 
Evening Skincare Routine.
To take off my makeup, I use the Garnier Micellar Water with a cotton pad. I use a lot of these pads on average I used 5-7 pads, is that normal? But, I like to ensure that my makeup is fully off before I wash my face. I have been using this for a couple of months and I love the way it takes off my makeup, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Also, I find that it makes my face appear smooth as well as feel smooth. To wash my face, I use a more gentle scrub just because I feel like I have exfoliated my face a lot in the morning so I use the Aveeno Gentle Facial Scrub which smells like apples. Massaging this into the skin with warm water, gently cleanses and exfoliates my skin thus leaving my face with a fresh feeling. To moisturise, I use the Aveeno Daily Moisturiser again! For me, I have to moisturise my face twice as day as my skin gets dry a lot in the winter.
I have been using a facial toning mist on my face before I got to bed and so far I have been loving it a lot. It has been toning my skin and looks great beneath makeup.  An in-depth review will be coming up soon and when it does, I will link it here.
