Everyday Skincare Routine

Happy Friday.
How Fab is the weather today? I'm currently sitting on a towel out the back as the garden furniture is still tucked away. 
A question I've been asked a lot recently is about my skincare and my everyday make-up routine, so I'll start off with my skincare. 
From my early teens I had very bad skin, and to this day it is still not 100%. I have breakouts that are rally bad, not just a small spot or 2 but they are quote big and sore and obvious. But having a good everyday skincare routine can help stop big breakouts and minimise general breakouts. Some people are very lucky to never have had a spot or to never get one but I think for the majority of us we do get those breakouts. I'll do another post on what I do when I do get breakouts in regards to skincare and makeup. 
                               
    

So every morning and night I use the Clarins Anti Pollution Cleansing Milk for normal/dry skin. It lifts away makeup and dirt so easily. You can use it with cotton pads or you can use it with water. I personally prefer to use it with water, just cause it feels like I'm getting a deep cleanse. It has alpine herbs and linden in it so it helps restore skins moisture and leaving you with glowing radiance. 
It retails at €22.
                               
Next up I use Clarins Toning lotion with Chamomile. It's a super gentle alcohol-free toning lotion which refreshes the skin, and respects the skins natural pH and moisture levels. With the camomile, it  softens, smoothes and soothes irritations on the skin. I was never a fan of toner as I found it dried the skin out but this doesn't, and what I love most about it is it's amazing at taking off the leftover makeup that you might have missed with the cleanser.  It retails at €22

                                 
Next up is the Clinque Eye Cream. Being honest I can never get an eye cream that works. Just after Nan died, my skin was in a terrible condition, from stress, upset, not eating properly, missed sleep etc etc. and the most part that was affected was my eyes, they were dry, sore, swollen. So I popped over to Laura at the Clinique counter in Mahon point after work one day, and she recommended this to me and it's a damn good eye cream, it retails at I think 
€28 and is worth every cent. It helped all of the above,and that's exactly what I wanted. 


                              
My day cream is also Clinique. It's the Superdefense SPF 20. It's a lovely thick consistency and when applied to the skin melts onto it. It's aim is to protect against dryness, UVA/UVB and prevents first signs of again. It's absorbs into the skin quickly so no need to wait to apply your primer. It is on the pricey side, it retails about €54. But you pay for what you get and this is luxury in a jar.

                               


I've the most combination skin you'll come across, one day it's super oily and the next it looks like I've just come from the Sahara. My big problem is my skin is also dehydrated but this is from the inside, I really don't drink enough water. I do hope to start YouTube soon and in one of the videos I plan on doing, I'll show how to know what skin type you are. 

For night time I use the same cleanser, toner and eye cream but I use no7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream for Dry/very dry skin. This is one product I've used for a few years and I love it, and it works for me so I won't be changing that any time soon. I forgot include this in my photos so this one is taken from Google.

                                   
So there you have it my everyday skin routine. Any questions, you can comment below or on any of my social media. My snapchat UN is orls29, feel free to add me where I post frequently also 😀
