#BeautyBuys Part 4
All my favourite skincare products, getting you ready for flawless summer skin!
Good skin is not an easy feat to achieve, something I've been trying to perfect over the last 10 years or so. Even when I think I've got it right, my skin does something unpredictable and unplanned, punishing me for eating a whole bag on madeleines on a Tuesday night! The with combination skin, it's even harder to try and find the right products that keep the dry parts moisturised and the oily parts cleansed. Why can't anything in life be easy, right? After spending time getting to know, understand and pamper my skin, I've finally learned what works for me (90% of the time) and the products that my skin really loves.
It's important to note that just as we are all unique, so is our skin. While these products work well for me, I'd advise experimenting around to test and trial what's best for you :)
Even if you're feeling super exhausted after a long ass day at work, simply taking off your makeup with a wipe and washing your face once is not enough ladies! You should try to pre-cleanse with an oil-based cleanser to really soak up makeup and dirt build up from the day (see post on double cleansing):
I prefer more foamed based cleansers for the second round of cleaning my face. All the bubbling and foaming makes cleansing my face for the second a little more fun and a little less tiresome.
Who knows what serums actually do? I've never been hundred percent sure. I think it's something to do with getting an intense and concentrated shot of a particular benefit e.g. hydration or pigmentation. They say use it and I do, aaaand it works a treat so hey ho!
During the day, I go for lighter cream under my makeup. At night I much prefer using oils to really hydrate my skin as I sleep.
