As those of you who have read yesterdays blog ( although apparently this only got published today- don't know why) one of my new years resolutions is to keep up with my new beauty regime. My goal is to have spot free healthy skin. Here are my beginning of 2013 essential items and uses:-
Start of routine once a week: Exfoliate
Exfoliating my skin is very important as it removes dry/old skin and encourages healthy new layer of skin. I will be doing this weekly and have chosen St. Ives Apricot Scrub I chose the more gentle formula which is suited to all skin types, is also oil-free which is great for me as I have combination skin .
Step 1 : Cleanse
It is important to clean your skin, to remove the dirt etc that you collect during your day to day life and also allows your skin to breath and prepares the skin to receive any nutrients the next morning while helping to restore the skin’s natural oils .. I have chosen Nivea visage gentle face wash gel- at night I will remove my make up with Simple wipes first then cleanse.
Step 2 : Tone
As mentioned I have combination skin and so I am prone to spots if I don't choose the right products on my face. A toner will close your pores after cleansing and prepare your skin to absorb the goodness in the moisturiser. I have chosen Nivea visage toner as I believe you should try and use products that are made to work with each other in this case Nivea Visage range.
Step 3 : Moisturise
My moisturiser feeds my skin all the nutrients it needs to repair and to give me a smooth radiant complexion. I have the Nivea Visage natural beauty day cream.
That's it my new skin routine for 2013- bring on the glow!
