Skincare

Hey Blogland, 
Right before I start this post on my skincare routine I just want to say that my skin is far from perfect, I get spots and I also suffer a little from hyperpigmentation which is when spots leave a mark on your face. Also because of the some of the medication I take I also have very red skin I just use foundation whenever I'm in public so people never know this about me :). Then theres the fact that I'm not a dermatologist, this routine is what works for me and since quite a few of you guys asked me to do a skincare post so, here we are :)
 
No.7 Cleansing Lotion, Visibly Clear pink grapefruit daily scrub, extra large cotton wool pads, Biore deep cleansing strips, Sudocrem, Simple kind to skin cleansing facial wipes.
No.7 Protect and Perfect Day and Night cream & Origins super spot remover.
So my skincare routine never really differs unless I come across something that I fall in love with. When I was younger I was pretty useless when it came to a skincare routine, just a facial wipe and that was it. Nowadays i'm pretty strict with making sure I do my daily scrub, cleanse all that stuff.
 
So here we go:
- I pretty much just whack on some of my No.7 Protect and Perfect Day cream in the morning because most of my skincare routine happens at night.
- When I get home, or if I've been out I will wipe off any make-up intially with a
Simple kind to skin cleansing facial wipe, which just makes me feel better before properly cleaning my face.
- Then I scrub my face with my Visibly Clear pink grapefruit daily scrub, which smells amazing and lasts ages. Afterwards my face feels clean and just loads better.
- Then after that I will use my No.7 Cleanising Lotion, I rub this in everywhere making sure to tackle my eyes to make sure any mascara left on there gets removed, then I will wip it off with one of the large cotton wool pads and that really shows that a facial wipe and even a daily scrub doesn't get everything off your face.
- Then I will apply the night cream.
- Once a week I will use a Deep Cleanising pore strip which really does grab any ingrained dirt off of my nose and I also get a strange satisfaction about seeing it on the strip when I take it off, does that make me weird? lol


Depending on spots:
- If I have a little spot appearing I will apply just the tiniest of dabs of sudocrem, it seems to work I don't know why LOL
- If I have one of those spots that you just know is going to be quite big, you know the ones, I will use my Origins super spot remover this you just dab a little bit onto the area and it tingles a little but that to me is the feeling that it's doing its job :). It's not cheap but I think it's worth it and it last ages because it's not something that you use everyday.

There you go guys, hope you enjoy. Like I said before I'm not a skin expert or anything like that this is just the routine that workd for me and seems to doa good job. I also have quite sensitive skin so if you are looking for items that are good for sensitive skin then I can certianly recommend the above items as they don't irritate my skin which reacts very easily if it doesn't like something.

Talk to you guys soon :D

  3. Hi there! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I'm trying
    to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!
