Part 2: My Skincare Routine

May 1, 2014

Read part one here.

My daily skin routine is a bit extension but well worth it. It’s important to start looking after your skin from a young age, I thank my mother and my aunt for being so pedantic about skincare and products.

Morning:
In the morning I wake up and wash my face with NeoStrata Restore facial cleanser, I then follow with a rose water and witch hazel toner and moisturise with Bioderma Sensibio Light Cream. Every morning, no matter the weather, I put sunblock on my face. I find the Vichy sun care products the best.

I exfoliate every morning, either with a dry brush or an exfoliating glove. Many people don’t realise how much dead skin we loose when we sleep, exfoliation will help moisturiser penetrate the skin better & helps to eliminate the build up of dead skin cells. Exfoliating every day will leave you with baby soft skin.

One of my favourite bathroom products is my Aesop Geranium Body Wash, it’s a small fortune for a body wash but I step out of the shower feeling like I’ve left a spa and that feeling is priceless to me.

After exfoliating I use Nivea Smooth Body Milk and a little tissue oil on my scars and yes stretch marks. Damn those evil white lines 😉

Night:
At night I wash my face with NeoStrata Restore facial cleanser again and instead of moisturising I use Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which is truly a skin product sent from the Gods.

I use Aesop Geranium Body Balm in the evenings to moisturise my body as I like to go to bed smelling like a spa, makes me sleep better.

Other:
Twice a week I exfoliate my face with Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermafoliant. This product is unbelievable, it’s pricy but it goes far. It takes me two years to finish a tube of this stuff! After exfoliation I put a mask on, either the Bioderma Sensibio mask or a clay bentonite mask.

I am a sucker for LUSH products and my guilty pleasure is relaxing in the bath after a long shoot with either a LUSH fizz ball or a bubble bar. If my skin is feeling dry I add a cup of milk and 100ml olive oil to my bath.
