My morning skin care routineSaturday, April 25, 2015
After so many years, looking for my perfect face products, I think I finally find them. And that means it's finally time, for me to show you what I am using in my morning routine. Since I am using different products in the morning and evening I will first show you my morning routine, then my evening. And for the end I will show special treatments like masks and peelings I enjoy using it.
A word or two about my skin type first. Ever since I can remember my skin was really thin and dry. 6 years ago, when I finished high school, my skin become sensitive too. Imagine doing peelings to really thin skin almost every week. Yea me neither! But my professor always forced my college into doing peeling while facial class, even if I begged not to. (if I had all that knowlege about skin care as I have now, I would sent my professor somewhere, where sun never shines!!!!) And 3 years ago, when I stop eating birth control peels my breakouts starts. Thank you for that my dear hormones! It is a win win, not. Sensitive dry skin with hormonal breakouts. in 6 words.
I wash my face with lukewarm water and then I rotate between two cleansers. Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash which is one of my favourite. You can see I just emptied a big size and before that 3 mini sized tubes. This one cleanse my skin really gently but at the same time really good. It helped me with all my hormonal break outs. The next one I owned a few years back, but I just couldn't remember why I didn't like it back there. So after a lot of bloggers talked how they like it, I repurchase it. And this time I actually like it. Alverde Clear Waschcreme is one of those non-foaming creams, with strange smell and colour, but it does the job. Perfect for sensitive skin with impurities.
I always take a few minutes and gently massage my cleanser around my face with circular motions. Then I simply wash it of with lukewarm water. It makes quite a difference on your skin, if you take a minute or two and gently massage cleanser around your face. And I never avoid the eye area.
