I’ve been utterly loving my current skincare routine, so I thought I would share my morning routine to start. I still intend doing a full review of some of these products soon. I’ve also created a simple instructional video, which is at the bottom of this post. It’s a wonderful way to wake up your skin first thing in the morning. OK on with the routine!
I am currently using The Better Skin Formula. This consists of a cleansing base and four different blended cleansing oils. I pick an oil based on what my skin needs at the time. As you can see, my skin tends to suffer from breakouts and is a bit lacklustre. In the video below I went with option two – Nourish | Balance. Each of the oils has a different blend of oils, aimed at various problems. The oils are bespoke to each person, don’t worry I’ll do a full review on this skincare line soon. I use a few drops of the oil and a tiny amount of the cleansing base and blend them together in my hands. Then massage the combination into my skin.
I remove the cleanser with a warm, damp, Bamboo cloth* from Facetheory (my kit came with two). Although the cloth is wonderfully soft, I do use this as an exfoliator too.
Next is the Mini Konjac Pore Refiner French Red Clay Sponge, (say that ten times fast). I dampen this with warm water and use it in circular motions all over my face. I tend to focus on any congested areas, for example I’m just getting over a hormonal breakout along my jaw, so I spend a bit longer there. Then I rinse my face and dry.
Once the toner has absorbed into my skin I apply my moisturiser blend. This blend was given to me after my facial with Claire – the lady that created this skincare line. I have raved about Claire’s facials before, they’re incredibly bespoke and are a bit magic I think. If however, you’re unable to visit for a facial, this skincare line is a wonderful option for at home.
That’s it, that’s my morning routine. As mentioned, I’ve created a video to demonstrate all of the above, (I may be incredibly chuffed with the edit on this one). It would make my day if you subscribed to my YouTube channel. If you’ve any questions feel free to ask. What is your morning routine?
