I’ve always really struggled with my skin and when I came off the pill a few years ago it really took a turn for the worst (I’ll do a separate post on this). My skin is oily and spot prone still but I’ve managed to keep it under control with the below routine. You’ll seeI use a real mixture of products with very different price points, but my main tip is to use a clean flannel everytime you wash your face (day and night), it might seem like a lot of extra washing but when you have a little one you’re doing more anyway!
My skincare must haves at the moment…
I switch between these two, both really reasonable and I really haven’t found anything that works as well for me.
E45 Wash, £5.39(this is pretty much my favourite product in the whole world!)
A lovely texture and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
I love both of these, The Ordinary is so reasonable and my skin definitely looks and feels more plump after using.
Mask (once a week):
Although my skin is oily, I’m making a real effort to make sure I don’t strip that all away. This mask makes me feel like my skin has a large glass of water.
Acid (a couple of times a week):
I debated buying this for a long time, but I received a sample last year in an advent calendar and have never looked back. It’s quite harsh so I’d only use occasionally, but it does make a real difference to the appearance of my pores and my skin feels so smooth.
I’m never sure what I need from a moisturiser, but this one is a great price and doesn’t clog my pores.
The Ordinary, £5.00 (this always sells out, so if you see it just buy it!)
