I don’t have the best skin, so I’m definitely not claiming to be an expect about skincare and how to get perfect skin, because mine is far from perfect. This is just a little routine of what I do nightly to my face. I’ve included pictures of all the products below and if you want any more information about any of them, ask in the comments.
I start by taking off any makeup I had on during the day. To do this I use to Garnier Micellar water on a cotton pad. It says that you don’t need to rinse this off your face but I do it anyway. Then I wash my face with warm water.
Next comes toner. I’ve used this one for years and it’s basically just a mixture of Witchhazel and Rosewater which is excellent for drying up spots and it smells really good too. I put that on a cotton pad and put it all over my face.
After that I use a spot cream on any blemishes I have. I use a cream called Duac which I find really good, but you can use any spot treatment that works for you. I put a tiny bit of that directly on any spots and let it dry in.
After that’s dried in I use a Simple moisturiser. I have quite sensitive skin and moisturisers that are too heavy, can make me break out. Simple is really soft and light. I put that all over again.
I like to do a face mask once a week if I can. This one is my favourite and it’s the Mask of Magnaminty from Lush. Everyone raves about this mask and I know why now because it’s amazing.
It’s possibly one of my favourite smells ever and it makes my skin feel so smooth and hydrated.
Apply a layer of it all over your face and leave it for about 10-15 minutes. Then wash it off with warm water and voila. I highly highly recommend this mask for anyone who has slightly oily or acne prone skin.
Thats basically it! My other tips for keeping your skin as clear as possible is drinking lots of water, trying to avoid touching your face at all and ALWAYS remove your makeup before you go to bed. Other than that, being a teenager usually comes with a little bit of acne. It’s totally normal to get a few spots here and there and it’s not the end of the world. Just take care of your skin and wait out the pesky teenage skin days.
