With my birthday coming up where I'll enviably be eating a lot of pizza and cake, I want to make sure my skin is in tip top condition. I always stick to a morning and evening skincare regime, but I've been adding in regular facials to improve the texture and appearance of my complexion.
I've been using my Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser* to help rid my skin of any blemishes I have. It makes my skin look clearer and cleaner, without stripping it which is what I love. After cleansing, I then go in with a physical or chemical exfoliator in the form of the Pixi Peel and Polish* or Farmacy Honeymoon Glow*, I tend to go with the former as I like to use a variety of other lotions and potions afterwards whereas I find the latter in great if you don't have lots of time.
I go in with a face mask which is one of the most important parts. I use skincare tools before and afterwards, but I'll be doing any post explaining those later this month! The Fresh Rose Face Mask* is perfect if your skin is feeling irritated and you want a boost of hydration as this instantly improves my complexion. After five minutes, I massage any excuse that hasn't soaked into my skin and then I remove it with a splash of warm water before going in with my Liz Earle Instant Boost Tonic* which finishes of the routine nicely.
Then it's onto serums and I've been using two! The first one is Glow Recipe's Pineapple C-Bright Serum* which does what it says on the tin and helps to add luminosity to the skin - it really works! It doesn't strip the skin, but I know at this point my skin needs another drink, so the Fresh Deep Rose Hydrating Serum* works perfectly at adding a silky, yet smooth feeling to the complexion. I finish everything off with a few swipes of the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream*, a super nourishing and thick luxurious moisturiser that sinks in quickly and makes my skin feel amazing.
