summer skincare routine

Skincare is usually not something I care too much about, and as I do have pretty clear skin. However, I have wanted to have a routine in place, as I am trying to reduce the amount of break outs I have! I mean, what a great time to be writing this, considering I have just broken out with a few spots around my nose!

I don't own a lot of skincare products, and its just because my skin rarely needs a full, deep cleanse, but these products I use on a daily basis. In the morning, I will only apply the last 3 products, just because I don't usually have a lot of time to focus on skincare! In the evenings, I start by taking off my makeup with the Garnier Micellar Water and a cotton pad, which thoroughly takes off my makeup, meaning I can skip the stage of cleansing. If I am feeling lazy however, I just remove my makeup with a makeup wipe.

I then hydrate my face with the Mario Badescu Facial Spray, which helps my skin from not going dry in the summer months. This also gives me a bit of a wake up call too, because the cold, fine mist soothes my skin. Once the mist has set into my skin, I apply the Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream, which is honestly the best if you have dry skin! I apply this everywhere, but use this sparingly as a little goes a long way!

The final step is caring for my lips, and I just apply the Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush, which refreshes your lips, and makes them feel so soft! I finish my moisturising them with the eos lipbalm in Blueberry Acai, which is really tempting to lick off I won't lie! But this moisturises them overnight which is something I need, as my lips do get quite dry!

If you have any recommendations of skincare products for me to try, let me know because I am very interested in branching out to discover new products! I'm not sure when I will next see you, but until then, have a fab week! love,
