Back track to a couple of months ago and my face was an angry, spotty mess. It was really affecting my confidence and I knew something had to be done , so after a trip to a doctor resulting in a prescription for Zineryt, I also decided to try and create a routine that I knew I would stick to. It's short, simple and easy enough to manage on a daily basis, and whilst my skin may not be 100% perfect yet, I'm getting there with it.
I've always had combination skin so coping with it is a little difficult, but I've learned to accept that trying to dry out spots is NOT the way to go, it just doesn't work like that. Skin needs to be treated and protected with care so I try not to strip it as much as possible by using a gentle foaming wash from Vitage on my Magnitone at the lowest setting and then replenishing with lots of oils afterwards. My favourites come from Caudalie and Nuxe. Keeping skin clean but nourished is the best way, at least for me, to keep it looking healthy and radiant.
If everything is still looking a bit dull after all of that, I'll occasionally also use Merumaya's Gentle Exfoliating Toner after washing my face to freshen everything up and get rid of the dead cells. My Zineryt is also a nightly go to for me, and has done wonders in clearing my face up. When I have the time, usually about once a week, I really love to treat my skin with a face mask. Cosmetic Catastrophe from LUSH is one of my favourites for calming everything down and soothing angry skin.
And that's it! Simple enough that I always stay on top of it but with a whole host of really effective products. How do you take care of your skin?
