I always like to say the earlier you look after your skin, later on in life you will see the reward, a girl can try and grow old gracefully . . . right?
Anyway my skincare needed a couple of adjustments, I have been using the same cleanser and moisturiser for a while, now they are still in my skincare I just swap them in and out depending on what my skin needs.
These new products that I have introduced I have been using for a few weeks now, I introduced one product at a time so that I didn't have any breakouts and if I was to, at least I knew what it was (top tip). I am have combination to oily skin, always go by your skin needs as everyone is different and can react differently too.
So I invested in a new cleanser from Dermalogica the special cleansing gel now this gel texture, before I say anything else a little goes a long way, you only need a pea sized amount and that will do the whole face and neck. Now you lather this up in your hands and massage into the face and neck you don't need to worry about sensitive eyes, it even gets off waterproof mascara. With all cleansers I take a warm flannel and rinse away the product, it is amazing seeing what is still left on the face after I have used micellar water, always remember to double cleanse.
Overall I really like this cleanser is smells amazing like a mini spa in your bathroom and you only need a little bit of product and my skin is left feeling clean and refreshed.
Now after I use a hydrating toner I moisturise and this bottle of heaven has changed my skin in a glowing way. This brand is by Environ and I have never heard about it until my beauty therapist mentioned it to me It's a moisturiser that contains a low level of vitamin A, C and antioxidants and helps with fine lines and wrinkles. I know I don't have deep wrinkles but I have noticed around my eyes (but lets say thats laughter lines ha). The texture of the cream feels amazing on the skin and I literally wake up with fresher, brighter looking skin, I've even had compliments on how glowing my skin is, now I only use this 2-3 times a week to slowly introduce my skin to a new type of product as some retinol's can be harsh if your skin isn't used to it, always read the labels!
Now with products containing retinol you have to use SPF without a question, as this could lead to damaging your skin further, after doing some research I found Alpha H protection plus daily SPF 50+ a 3 in 1 moisturiser, sun shield and primer. My first impression wasn't an impressed one because of the colour of the product which is a light brown colour and the thickish texture but the more I have used this the more it is growing on me, not only is it protecting me from sun damage it's prolonging my make up and making it last longer, BONUS! The only thing I would say when you buy this don't give up on it the benefits are amazing!
