My Skincare Favorites

Hello everyone! I thought I would write a post about skin care today, as recently my skin has been quite clear. It is important to take care of your skin all year round, but it's especially important in the winter months. However, there are ways to keep your skin healthy and clear, so I thought I would share my favorite skincare products with you, which I think really help my skin!

Bare in mind that everyones skin is different, so these products may not work for you. I have combination to normal skin, and normally I don't have many spots, just a few blackheads - my skin is quite clear.

Face wash/exfoliater
- My favorite exfoliating face wash is Neutrogena visibly clear blackhead scrub. The exfoliating beads are really small, meaning they actually do help to get rid of blackheads. It's a daily face wash, and you can use it morning and night, which I do. It helps to make my skin feel really smooth and soft, as the exfoliating beads also help to get rid of dead skin cells. 

Moisturiser
- My favorite moistuiser is Simple Kind to Skin hydrating light moisturiser. As the name would suggest, it is a light formula, and easily goes into the skin. It does really moisturise my skin, and it doesn't leave an oily feel, or clog up my pores. Because it's simple, it's good for sensitive skin, and it claims to work for 12 hours.

Mask
- My favorite face mask is the Tea Tree face mask from The Body Shop. It helps to remove impurities, absorb excess oil and sooth the skin. Once removed, your skin looks healthier, clearer and feels much softer and smoother. It has tea tree in it which is very good for getting rid of spots. Also, it seems to last for a long time, as you don't need to use much each time. This is good, as the Body shop can be quite expensive.

Spot/skin treatments
-For really bad spots, the cream that I have found to work best is Quinoderm, which you can buy in boots. It is very strong, so you have to use it sparingly, but it will dry up the spot straight away. Because my skin is normally quite clear, I only use this when I have a really bad spot, and apply it only on the spot; do not apply it all over the face!

- I also love Effaclar duo, which really helped my skin when I had a few breakouts. It also helps with black heads. It has a very silky feeling and almost melts into the skin. It is meant to help unclog your pores, and I really think it helps to do that. I used it before my moistuiser.

Hope that you found this post helpful!
