One positive thing that has come out of lockdown is I have decided it’s time to really take care of my skin. Since having a baby six months ago and the colder weather setting in my skin has been playing up. I’ve purchased quite a few new skincare products, over the last couple of month, so have been giving them a little tryout. I few of them have already found there way into my daily skincare routine so I thought I would do a little updated skincare routine, with a few treatment products thrown in there too.
Starting off at the beginning and my cleanser hasn’t changed. I’m still loving the Beauty Pie Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser, it’s just so quick and easy to use. However over the past couple of weeks, I have been using the Foreo Luna Play, a couple of times a week, as a little skin pamper and have been so impressed with how much cleaner my skin feels. After using the Foreo my skin feels so soft and instantly looks more glowy. I also love that its bright pink.
For the eyes I have been using The Inkey List Caffeine Serum to really help waken up my under eye. I normally use an eye gel from Lumene, as I really like something light under my eyes. This eye serum really does work, after using this product my under eyes looked brighter and a lot less tired. You can also pop it in the fridge to help reduce puff eyes, which is great for those sleepless baby night.
There are two serums I use morning and evening. The first is the Lumene Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence and then The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. I’ve been on the hunt for months for a Vitamin C serum that wasn’t too expensive but really works. I love Lumene so decided to pick up the Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence and now wish I bought it years ago. The texture is so light, feels like water on the skin, smells of orange and really packs a punch. My skin honestly looks so radiant and glowy after applying this product and I like that it really gentle on my skin too. For a bit of hydration, I always apply The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, I’ve been using this for years and can’t see myself switching this product.
For moisturiser, I’m currently using the Philosophy Renewed Hope Water Cream. I only use gel moisturisers now, I find they are so light on the skin whilst giving you the right amount of hydration. With the temperature dropping my skin can become quite dry and crying out for some help so I’ve been using the Dr Jart+ |Cicapair Tiger Grass Sleepaur Intensive Mask.. You just pop it on before bed and then wash it off in the morning. The mask is really lightweight forming a barrier on your face to help your skin repair itself overnight. The next morning you wake us with super soft refreshed skin.
So there’s my Lockdown Skincare Routine. Have you switched up your skincare since lockdown? I’d love to which products you currently can’t live without.
