Looking after my skin for me has always been top priority and in the last few years I have tried and tested many brands of skincare. Some brands have worked wonders and others have ruined my skin, so through trial and error I have finally found a few brands that works for me.
Being in my mid 30s my main concern is ageing, so sagging skin, fine lines and age spots are all on my list to combat. I have finally got my skincare routine sorted and wanted to share it with you.
The main products I’m going to be talking about are all by Liz Earle, but I do use other products from other brands to supplement my routine. I start off in the mornings by cleansing my skin with the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. All you need is a 20p amount, I gently massage it into my skin, even over my eyes, as it is so gently it doesn’t sting at all, then I take the muslin cloth that comes with it, rinse it in hot water, squeeze and wipe off the product, no need to rinse after.

Next I like to tone my skin using the Pixi Glow Tonic using a cotton pad and wipe away any excess cleanser, in addition I also give my skin a quick spritz using the Liz Earle Skin Tonic. You can actually just use this as a toner. I let the toner sink in and dry on my skin and then apply my Liz Earle Superskin Face Serum, one small pump is enough for your whole face. Quick tip, rather than spreading the product on your hands before applying, dab it onto the skin and then massage it in circular and upwards motions, this way majority the of the product actually goes on your skin rather than sink into your hands.

After the serum I apply my Liz Earle Superskin Moisteriser, I use the unfragranced one for sensitive skin. I use maybe a pea sized amount, sometimes a little more if my skin feels a little bit more dryer than normal and apply it the same way I do the serum.Not everyone uses an eye cream or needs to and I have started recently, the one I chose to use is the Khiels Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum. One small pump of this is more than enough for both eyes. Using my ring finger I dab into my skin around the contour of my eye, never apply eye cream directly onto the eye or under the eye where the skin is quite thin.

This generally it for my skincare routine, I do also once a week like to apply a face mask and exfoliate my skin. My favourites at the moment are The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal glow mask and the Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator. Of course after this if I want to wear I’ll go ahead and apply it, but on a normal day I don’t like to wear make up, I do however swear by a tinted moisturiser or BB cream.
