Hey friends, how are we all?? Sorry I only posted once last week! School holidays are coming to an end faster then I thought so I’ve been spending time with my little one before she starts her first year at school! So stressful! Life goes so fast and my eyes are welting up just typing this! I will most definitely be a mess when I drop her off for her first day and I cant decide whether to wear makeup or not. Do I wear makeup and cry my eyes out and scare all the children away or do I not wear makeup and look like I’ve been on a hectic 3 day bender… and scare the children away! Cant decided!!
So today I wanted to share with you MY NIGHT TIME SKIN CARE ROUTINE! My skin is quite combination and since having my first child I’ve had quite a lot of trouble with it. It’s like I hit puberty at 21. But I manage the best i can. I do struggle with break outs but I control them the best I can. And if anyone of my readers have the same trouble. Do NOT let it bring you down. It happens to the best of us. I feel like any kind of cosmetics are trial and error. Some things work for you and some don’t but I’ve recently found a few products that have been fantastic! So keep reading if you want to hear more!
First of all as some of you may know from previous post, I love taking off my makeup with a good old baby wipe! The ones I use are from Woolworths and are hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and contain no alcohol! The wipes contain aloe vera and vitamin E which is something that has always benefited my skin!
Now babies wipes wont take off 100% of your makeup so I will then soak one in my ‘Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water’! I only purchased this product a few weeks ago and it has done wonders for my skin! Its for normal to sensitive skin and contains no perfume so it hasn’t irritated my skin at all. I use this to take off eye makeup and also my lipstick! There is no need to scrub your face because this stuff literally melts it off!
After making sure all my makeup has been removed I use my ‘Neutrogena Oil-free Daily Scrub! I use this to remove any dead skin and help unclog my pores to prevent break outs! it exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling smooth!
Ill then used my ‘The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask’. This stuff is my holy grail face mask! I do this ever second night and it clears up my skin or shrinks any already existing blemishes! It contains, tea tree oil, tamanu oil, lemon tree oil and menthol. Ill leave this on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off and my skins left feeling so cool and fresh!
Before moisturizing and only if I have any hectic break outs ill use a cotton tip and dab some of my ‘Mario Badescu Drying Lotion’ onto any blemishes that need to fuck off asap. This lotion is quite self explanitary! It dries out your pimples so don’t lather this stuff all over your face otherwise you’ll turn into a big old mess. so just apply it on the problem areas. I also made the mistake when first using it and applied to broken skin. DO NOT DO THAT! It burnt like a mother fucker. But it works! Ill leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wipe it off!
I then like to sprits my face with some of the ‘Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater’. This stuff leaves my face feeling so fresh and rejuvenated. Specially after id just been rubbing the crap out of my face. This can also be used before applying makeup and also setting your makeup in place! Its even good to use through out the day if your face isn’t handle the summer heat! Id highly recommend.
And last but certainly not least! The most important step of them all is moisturizer! My ‘Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream’. This cream is quite heavy for me so all I need is about a pea sized amount and ill rub this all over my face. This leaves my face feeling so smooth and what I love about this is that is doesn’t contain any oils!
So this is why I’m up so late and get barely any sleep, because this shit takes so long! No but seriously it really doesn’t. healthy skin is super important and we all need to use the best products we can to maintain our youthful skin for as long as we can! I hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you’ve used any of these products down below or tell me what products best work for you! Love you all and thanks for reading!
