How I Look After My Face: Morning Skincare Routine

I am such a lazy person, whether it is exercise, eating healthy, doing the dishes or looking after my skin, I'm so damn lazy!! In recent months though I have really noticed that my skin has started to change and as I am getting older I can't just leave it alone to do its own thing, it is getting needy and wants attention. Because of this I have really stepped up my skincare routine and have found some products that I really enjoy using in the morning and I thought I would share them with you,

So first thing I do in the morning is jump into the shower, it really wakes my body up and to wake my face up I like to use the Yes To Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub. I use this in the shower because that way I always remember to use it! This comes out like a whitey clear colour with little pink scruby beads. This smells so awesome and is the perfect amount of scrub for everyday without over scrubbing and leaving your face red raw! This keeps my skin feeling super soft and feeling really clean as well.

After shower time I just give my skin one final clean with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. This just gets rid of any make up residue that might be hanging around from the day before and provides a super clean base for when I apply make up. I use to really love the Bioderma cleansing water but I think after using nearly half of this bottle I actually prefer this one! It is also much cheaper and easier to get your hands on.

After this I just quickly tone, I have used this toner for as long as I can remember and I don't actually think I have ever tried another one!! The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner is perfect for my blemish prone skin. This is really good at mattifying your skin and also is really helpful for clearing up any spots I have, as well as preventing them.

Before applying moisturiser I just give my face a little spray of the Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist. This is really nice and refreshing but also rehydrates your skin. My skin has been feeling pretty dry recently so this just adds some much needed moisture!

Moisturiser wise I have been using the La Roche Possay Effaclar Duo. I wrote a review on this recently so won't ramble on too much but this is really good for young adult skin I think, it is aimed at helping to reduce redness as well as stopping blemishes. I am really enjoying using this but it isn't my holy grail moisturiser just yet.

My final step before make up is the Superdrug Vitamin E SPF 15 Radiance Eye Cream. Eye cream is the one thing I love using but I have never found one that I love, so if you have any you like let me know? This one is really good though, it is super lovely and creamy but blends in beautifully. It also has SPF 15 which is great. I just apply this with my ring fingers and gently blend in, this is just my fav part of my skincare routine!

So there you go, a little look at what I do every (most) mornings to keep my skin looking lovely! Tomorrow I shall be posting my night time skincare routine so make sure to pop back for that. Please give me a little follow on Bloglovin, it makes my day when I get a new follower. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed,
