Maybe it helps you to improve your daily skin care, too.
When I’ve worked a lot, like the last 4 weeks, (…sorry for the delays of my article!!!! :-?) and I’m really stressed, I’ve found out that my skin is breaking out, angry and sensitive. So my skin needs a good and adequate skin care routine.
Specially in my age the skin care routine is very important. Because the skin is loosing a lot of collagen, hydration, therefore is very delicate and weak. That’s why woman over 40 years need a lot of hydration and it’s important to use adequad products. But there are so many expensive products on the market, which are not always the best choice. Expensive doesn’t necessarily mean good or right.
I have a mixed skin which is also greasy. So I need cosmetic products which have been developed to take care of my demanding mixed skin, tighten the skin structure, refine the appearance and add a lot of of moisture to my skin.
Here are the 7 steps of my personal and current daily skin care routine:
1.) The first thing I need after I got up is a strong black a coffee. Sometimes when I don’t have so much time I enjoy the coffee during my daily skin care routine. As you can see on the pics.
3.) After I dried my face softly with a towel I use the GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER. It’s perfect when you don’t have time to spend hours on a complicated routine. It removes make-up, cleanses and smoothes your skin. The MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER has a high tolerance formula that has no perfume. Actually no need to wash the face with soup which could harm the skin.
4.) Next step is the fresh OAT WATER SPRAY. I’ve been using oat water spray for a few month and I think it’s an effective and multifunctional product to soothe the skin and reduce irritation. I love it and it has become one of my fav basics in my daily skin care routine, both day and night. Therefore it’s more than APPROVED. The benefits of oat water is moisturizes the skin, helps to eliminate dead cells, eliminates impurities, protects the skin and improves skin conditions.
5.) I’m not yet 45 years old but the GARNIER ESSENTIALS ANTI-AGING 45+ CREME leaves my skin very soft and smooth. The texture is very light, pleasant and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling.
6.) THE OLAY ULTIMATE EYE CREAM fights dark circles, wrinkles and puffy eyes in an instant and give my eyes a boost of moisture. As well reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and hydrates to smooth and brighten the eye area. Supercharged with peptides and vitamins it renews the surface of my skin over time. I always use a small amount morning and evening around the eye area.
7.) The GLAM NUDE CREAM by L’Oréal is a BB Cream that adapts to the tone of my skin once I apply it. It has a medium coverage and a semi matt finish which covers the skin, unifies the tone, moisturizes and protects with SPF12. It’s lighter and more fluid in texture than a traditional BB cream. There’s no scent whatsoever, and it gives my skin a very sheer, completely weightless finish – perfect for a daily foundation, when you want the skin to breathe but don’t fancy baring all.
This cream comes out white, with tiny darker flecks. These are the smart pigment capsules, which break on application and adjust to my skintone for a light, sheer finish.
Usually when I use BB Creams my skin often translates to shiny or, worse, slightly sticky. This isn’t the case here. I get an instant shot of luminosity, but there’s actually a bit of mattifying action going on as well.
I found out if I use all these products together my skin returns back to normal and blemish free really quickly. I find if I add in loads of fancy products it just makes it worse. So I’m a firm believer in a stripped back routine.
I hope you found it useful! Let me know if you have questions! And, if you have some products you love, will you let me know?
Now there is only one important thing left to tell you guys.
Wrinkles are a beautiful!!! 😉
Until next time…
