It is important to remember that all skin is different, and there is no “cookie-cutter perfect skin”. It’s very rare to have perfect skin, and what we might consider to be bad skin, is most likely completely Normal! A misconception of having bad skin is when people assume that they’re eating badly or are dirty. Because of this people can then over wash their faces, making the situation worse. As someone who gets spots on their forehead and chin, I find it very frustrating when I have to cover it up with concealer to then only get more spots from the makeup; therefore, I am going to share the products that I use which help reduce my spots and help to make my skin feel refreshed.
‘Simple Moisturising facial wash’, can get rid of most of your makeup and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, in fact it’s a 100% soap free foam and has pro-Vitamin B, Vitamin E and Bisabolol. You simply apply the product directly onto your face and wash it off with water. It is very kind to sensitive skin and lasts me a while. It retails at around £2.33-£3.49 for 150ml at Boots.
When I wake up in the morning, I usually get puffy and dark circles under my eyes, so I bought ‘Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye cream’ 15ml. I started to massage it under my eyes before I went to bed and then again when I woke up. Since using the product,, I have noticed a slight difference; my eyes are definitely less puffy and much smoother. After four weeks my dark circles were minimised. This retails at around £2.97 in Superdrug.
‘Nivea refreshing toner’, 200ml, is perfect if you want to hydrate your skin.
Using a cotton pad, I apply it all over my face and neck; I use this daily. Once finished, it leaves my face feeling refreshed and toned. You can purchase it from Tesco for about £3.00.
Once in while I do like to treat myself to a good face mask. One that I particularly love and I believe works for me is the ‘L’Oréal Paris pure clay detox mask’. It has black charcoal in, which draws impurities out from your skin. After use, I’ve noticed that my skin feels a lot more luminous! If interested, you can buy it from Superdrug for £7.99 for the 50ml.
