Skincare and Polished Makeup Routine

Here’s a current look at my skincare routine, forever changing or being tweaked, only for the best reasons of course hehe. For days I want to look put together and fresh, I decided to show you my simplistic makeup routine as a small bonus.

AM Skincare Routine

  1. Splash with lukewarm water
  2. Simple Skincare Micellar Water, only if I feel super greasy, then rinse face
  3. CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion PM, 1 pump to damp face

*I’m looking to purchase a new sunscreen (Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk) that won’t irritate my facial dermatitis and rosacea but it’s currently out of stock online 🙂

Now after the day is through, what’s next? Well my evening skincare routine of course!

PM Skincare Routine

  1. Simple Skincare, Micellar Water (almost out and soon to be replacing with (Bioderma Sensibio H2O Sensitive, pink cap). I then continue the rest in the shower
  2. Simple Skincare Water Boost, Micellar Gel Cleanser, 30 seconds of finger tip massaging, then rinse face
  3. CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion PM to damp face, straight out of the shower
  4. CeraVe in the tub Moisturising Lotion on body
  5. Spot treat blemishes with Tea Tree Oil

I can’t help but thinking of that recent meme that I can’t find or was it a tweet about influencers talking about their skincare routines. In no way do I think I am an influencer but it gave me a giggle. I hope you enjoyed this blog post.

Remember to love your health.
