What is your skincare routine and what products do you use ?
I use a face wash, Garner something I’ll check Then number seven perfect and protect serum And sometimes the day or night moisturisers too (Not always though as sometimes think it gets my face too greasy )
Body shop caomomile oil cleanser Body shop vitamin e toner Moisturiser Exfoliation & hydrating masks oncd a week Am thinking of changing it up slightly though, perhaps to the liz Earle hot cloth cleanser that is still haven't tried!
AM: Spritz with rosewater toner & wipe off with cotton wool pad HA & B5 on still damp skin (this is important) Niaciamide & Zinc SPF 50 - I use a Japanese Nivea important that is very light and gel like BB cream/make up
PM: Hot cloth cleanse with Superdrug Pure hot cloth cleanser Spritz with Rosewater toner & wipe off [Twice a week Glycolic Acid 7% - very gently avoiding my cheeks as they react with stinging] Buffet Niacinamide & Zinc [Twice a week, not same night as Glycolic acid, Granactive 2% in squalane] Argan oil - patted into skin [Wait 15 mins] Night cream
In the mornings, I just splash a little cool or lukewarm water onto my face and then moisturise with L'Occitane Divine Immortelle cream.
In the evenings, I wash my face with No. 7 hot cloth cleanser in the shower. Once or twice a week I use a Vitamin E gentle and moisturising facial scrub and once a week I use a No. 7 intensive moisturising mask.
Then I apply No. 7 protect and perfect serum, followed by the night cream from the same range.
Bee good honey & propolis cleanser and pond's anti aging cream when I remember. In my defense I have those genes so even though I'm in my 50s I only have fine wrinkles and no crows feet. Only have the anti aging cream because it was the only one in poundland
