Updated Skincare routine (Autumn 2014)




Just think how cheap and simple our skincare routines would be if the seasons didn't have such a massive impact on the way our skin works. Anyway, mine has changed recently and I've incorporated a few new products that I am obsessed with and need to share asap!


Evening routine



I start of my removing my eye make-up with a spot of Bioderma (Sensibio) and I do this by soaking a cotton pad and holding it over my eyes for a couple of seconds, then wiping away. For the first step in my cleansing routine I go in with the Body Shop Silky Chamomile Cleansing oil and then follow it up with the Bioderma (Sebium) to ensure everything is fully removed. I then go in with a face mist and at the moment I'm loving how refreshing the Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist is. My Body Shop Serum-in-oil is then patted into my skin, only to be followed my my holy grail La Roche Posay Efficlar Duo + over my chin, or any areas that have broken out.
To finish off my night time routine, I then apply some of the Body Shop Aloe Eye Defense eye cream and a swipe of lip balm.


Morning Routine 


It's super lazy but I really hate using water on my face after my shower. When I can be bothered I use my Silky Chamomile Cleansing oil but otherwise I just swipe some Bioderma Sebium over my skin and follow up with the Urban Decay Vitamin Infused Prep Spray. This is full of antioxidants to help reduce oil and minimise pores, it can also be used just before you apply your make-up or throughout the day for a quick skin pick me up. I then go in with my Cetaphil moisturiser, a perfect choice for those with sensitive skin, especially as a result of seasonal changes. Then, finally, I use my Aloe Eye Defense eye cream to de-puff and sooth the eye area ready for make-up application.

Extras



After days of dancing at college and not properly getting a chance to cleanse my skin there, I come home and do a 15 minute steam facial using one I purchased from Argos for £12.99. This is so good at opening the pores allowing you to cleanse away any dirt that's trapped straight away. My skin always looks so much clearer after using it! 

I also apply facial masks once or twice a week to help combat any breakouts as well as exfoliating with these Yes To Grapefruit brightening facial wipes.
