Current Skin Care Routine

So I recently ran a poll over on my twitter '@andreainglisx' asking what blog post you lovely readers would like to see next.. current skin care routine won (obviously!). I've always been quite lucky in the sense of having good skin, don't get me wrong I still get blemishes every now and then but I've been fortunate enough to have never suffered from acne.

No matter what type of skin you have it is SO important that you look after it, I mean it's yours for your whole life. The first and main step to healthy skin is drinking water. Staying hydrated really wakens up your skin and gives you the perfect base for makeup. I really need to try get my 2L a day, which is why I've bought myself a cute tumbler to encourage myself to drink water whilst I'm at work.

The products below are ones I've been using religiously over the past few months, although I switch it up a fair bit these are all my favourites.

I vary my face wash/scrub and cleanser regularly. On a daily basis I use SOAP & GLORY Peach and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk to remove any left over makeup on my face whilst I'm having a shower. The smell of this is amazing a leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh. Once a week I use ST. IVES Apricot Scrub to give my skin an exfoliation and improve the texture. This scrub is hands down my favourite as it's gentle but removes any oil, dead cells and dirt off your face leaving it feeling unbelievably smooth. I also use LIZ EARLE Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser once a week when I feel like my skin needs a deep cleanse to really clean my skin. I love how this removes literally any make up left on your skin and the hot muslin cloth is so relaxing.

I never used to have a night time routine and just used to use a makeup wipes at night. After hearing all these horror stories about face wipes I will never go back to using them on my face. Since micellar waters made an appearance on the scene I've tried a fair few but I always come back to GARNIER Micellar Cleansing Water as it is hands down the best and such great value for money. If you haven't tried this before they currently have the 125ml on offer for £1 so go grab one from boots. A couple of weeks ago I was sent NOUVEAU LASHES Eye Make-Up Remover which I have gone as far as calling a god send over on snapchat (@andreainglis). It is honestly amazing and makes removing eye makeup easier than ever. I just apply it on some damp cotton pads and rub over my eyes. I highly recommend rubbing it into the cotton wool first as I didn't on one occasion and got it in my eye (not cool). Lastly, I received POLAAR Polar Night Cream in last months birchbox and I have been absolutely loving it. I've been suffering with dry patches of skin on my cheeks and this is really helping, it's a really thick cream but not one bit oily.

Lastly is my morning routine, which as you can see is rather simple. As my skin will already be cleansed and washed from my shower, I only use 2 products but oh my I swear by them. Firstly I apply SONYA Aloe Nourishing Serum which smells like a facial in a bottle with white tea extracts. This is by far my favourite skin care item, if I had to choose (please don't make me!) it would definitely be this, it is so versatile and makes your skin feel amazing. Then I use NO7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream and allow this to fully soak in before then going on to put my makeup on.

I hope you guys enjoyed seeing what I use on a daily basis and what products I love. If you have any recommendations based on what I currently use I would love to hear them and give them a go. On the other hand, please let me know if you are going to try out any of my products above!

Thank you for reading, lots of love ♥..
