Skincare has always been one of my top most important things that I do everyday. I’m quite religious at keeping it. During the day I’m working in an office with air-con blasting away which can really be damaging for my skin. Also cause I live in Australia the sun here can be even more damaging. So I have to take extra care for that. The above are just some of the products that I use on a daily basis.
My normal daily routine is that I wash, tone and apply my creams. I do this twice a day. Once in the morning and once before going to bed. I exfoliate 3 times a week usually in the shower (just makes it easy) and do a face mask 2 times a week.
Moisturize: I cannot say this enough! One thing that I do is to drink a lot of water! When I wake up every morning I drink a warm glass of water with a couple of lemon slices in it. Lemon is super good for your skin it not only boosts your vitamin c level which does amazing things for your skin in general. But it detoxes and revitalizes too. But during the day I drink a lot of just plain water usually luke warm or at least room temperature. I moisturize daily usually twice a day. More if I’ve been traveling on a plane just cause cabin air can dehydrate your skin a lot. I sometimes carry a small bottle of my daily moisturizer in my handbag and apply if I’m not wearing makeup.
SPF: Because I live in Australia our sun here is quite harmful so all of my makeup that I apply always has some sort of SPF in it. But before that I always always apply a layer of sunscreen under my makeup before I leave the house. That stops me from burning and can help me getting a nice healthy glow from a natural tan throughout the summer.
Face Masks: I do this twice a week. As a beauty blogger I always want to try out new things and different brands. Face masks I found is one of the easiest for me to try out. Even with the different brands I tend to lean towards the moisturizing ones a lot more or the skin brightening ones. I just love the healthy glow that it gives me when I’m done with them. One thing I would recommend would be the Eve Lom Moisture Mask.
Eyes: I get a lot of puffy eyes or dark circles from my longer hours or just not enough sleep in general. I love my Chanel and Dior range of eye creams. Their Le Lift range works wonders on the dark circles and the finer lines with prolonged uses. I use this in conjunction with their pinch massaging technique which is something that they do in their facials. Where after you apply their product you lightly pinch the area around the eyes and face which helps the skin absorb the products and increases the blood flow. I use the Dior eye cream just before I leave. It’s for a angled applicator and it’s always cold. I love this product lightly apply this and the cold applicator helps reduce the puffiness immediately.
I keep up this religiously to keep my face bright, moisturized and glowing all year round.
The other thing I do a lot is eating a lot of different vegetables such as avocados, spinach, tomatoes, and kale. These all help aid in getting glowing skin and a healthy diet.
