My Skincare Routine (All Drugstore)

Taking care of my skin is very important to me, I absolutely love looking after my skin so it can feel and look the best it possibly can. Of course healthy skin is not all down to skincare (products) I try to keep a healthy diet and drink plenty of water every day to keep my skin glowing. I have suffered with really awkward combination skin for years and have been trying so many products to find what works for me.

I think I have finally found the products that work for me and I like to keep it simple as the slightest change in routine or too many products can cause my skin to flare up. These products have been my holy grail for around 1 & 1/2 years now.

So to start with on a morning I like to use my Nivea Cleansing Wipes, I just use these for my eyes as I find it removes any eye make up I may have not fully scrubbed off the night before and it gets rid of any sleep/dryness under my eyes. I use the ones for dry skin as I have very dry skin and these ones tend to irritate my eyes a lot less. Then I take my No7 Radiant Results Cleansing Lotion, I rub this into my skin and wash off with a flannel, I feel this product leaves my skin feeling clear and taking away all of that dry/irritated skin from the night before leaving my skin feeling so refreshed. 

Afterwards I take my Garnier SkinActive Soothing Rose Water Toner on a cotton pad and gently wipe around my face, this toner is perfect for my sensitive skin and takes away any residue from anything I may have missed. Garnier do a range of toners but the Rose Water one is specially designed for its soothing powers and leaving your skin feeling extra smooth. The toner also smells amazing which makes it such a luxury to use!

For my last step of my skincare I will take my L'Oreal Triple Active Moisturiser and smooth this into my skin, I find this moisturiser moisturises my skin the perfect amount and sinks into my skin within 5 minutes so I can easily apply primer/makeup straight afterwards which is great because there is nothing worse than waiting for a thick moisturiser to sink into your skin. 

So that is my simple morning skincare routine, let me know in the comments if you use any of these products and also let me know if you would like to see my night skincare routine which just involves switching out some products and adding in one or two others. 

I hope you enjoyed reading about my skincare routine and it has helped you in some way, taking care of my skin is vital for me and I enjoy doing it every day. There's no such thing as taking too much time to look after your skin!
