I’ve always kept my skincare very basic. To be honest, I never really used to use anything on my skin, as I just never felt it necessary. Until I started learning a lot more about skin & began wearing a lot more makeup daily I saw how my skin was being affected. I’ve been lucky, I’ve never had to deal with any bad acne breakouts on my face, just the occasional pimple here & there, but my biggest issue was always my dry skin, we’re talking dry like the Sahara Desert dry! I’m very dehydrated, I would hardly drink water, more so because I would forget to, this really affected the way I would apply my makeup because the second I’d put foundation on my face my skin would just suck it all up & my face would look very powdery, flakey & well, dry! These past couple of months I’ve been drinking much more water & using a few products to help with hydration & prevent my skin from drying out.
Melrose Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil, I wish I had begun using Coconut Oil much sooner. I apply a small amount of the oil to my face & décolletage area every morning & night, this has helped so much with all the dry patches of skin I had around my face, particularly my cheeks. I prefer to use the Organic, unrefined kind, as it guarantees that I am not putting any other chemicals on my face.
Grown Alchemist Borago, Rosehip & Buckthorn Berry Oil has been a log time love of mine. I apply this to my under eye area morning, night & before makeup application as it is extremely hydrating & makes my eyes look a lot less puffy. I also feel that it makes my dark circles slightly less noticeable, depending on how dark they are that day.
KIEHL’S Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration is what I apply after my Coconut Oil & Rosehip oil, I have used a range of different moisturisers but nothing can come close to this. It looks like your average moisturiser but when applied is extremely light, it in all honestly feels a bit like water! I dot this over my face & rub it in circular motions, my skin soaks it up almost instantly.
I use the Glamglow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment about 2-3 times a week, to really give me that deep hydration I need. I leave this on for a good 15-20 mins & wipe off with a tissue, & I rub the remaining product into my skin. After using this my face literally feels like its drank a big glass of water, so hydrated & glowy.
I use the Jericho Premium Pomegranate Facial Peel once every two weeks to really clean up my skin & get rid of any dry skin that may be lingering on my face. I think its great to use a facial peel every couple of weeks as it gets rid of dry skin, bacteria, leftover makeup/dirt & I’ve even found its helped get rid of some of my blackheads. I finish this off with the Jericho Moisturising Day Cream. ( I could not find a link, as it was bought from a kiosk at a shopping centre.)
So that’s everything! I pretty much do anything to keep that moisture in my face, you probably noticed i didn’t mention a cleanser or exfoliator, that’s because I don’t usually use either. As bad as it may seem, Although I have just started using the Purity Facial Cleanser. Will keep you updated on that!
Let me know in the comments if there is anything you think I should try!
