Skin care in the summerSaturday, August 09, 2014
This post has been sitting as a draft for a while now and as summer is not over yet, I will quickly go over my skin care routine and the products I am using to keep it clear in the heat.
In the mornings I just wash my face with warm water and do not use any face wash. At the moment I am applying L'Oreal Skin Perfection Serum and Day Cream before going to work/out/applying make up.
In the evening/before going to sleep I wash my face with a L’Oreal Foaming Gel Cleanser, 8 Fluid Ounce (L’Oreal Youth Code series) and after that wipe my face with a L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection Velvety-Soft Toner.
Every other day (depends how my skin feels - large pores, small dots) I am using 3 different types of skin care products - pore strips, facial mask or face scub.
I have been using Biore Pore Perfect Deep Cleansing Pore Strips at least once a week and I try to use them regularly. I have tried several different brands but these patches are working wonderfully! It really takes a lot of dirt out and leaves my nose silky smooth and soft. It does hurt a bit taking it off, especially if I am using it on the chin but it effectively removes blackheads.
Another skin care product I am regularly using is this Sanctuary 5 min Thermal Detox Mask. I really like using light facial masks and Sanctuary has been my favourite for years. This mask is perfect for oily skin and helps to prevent blemishes and breakouts. It is a self-heating mask and it relaxes your skin perfectly. Warmth helps to open up pores and the charcoal and kaolin clay helps to draw out the impurities from deep within the skin. It also contains the essential oil of myrrh, which soothes and helps to rebalance oil levels. My skin is deeply cleansed and silky-soft!
And the last one is Wild Ferns Facial Scrub, which I already have mentioned in my blog. This is a gentle scrub containing pure active Manuka honey. Manuka is a flowering tea tree native to New Zealand. It is extremely rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals and has the outstanding ability to nourish, soothe and heal sensitive skin. My face is so soft after scrubbing and it helps to keep my skin healthy and clear.
During the summer time my face needs much more care and I have found these products to keep my skin balanced and clean.
