My Skin Care Routine

Hello :D
Hope you're all doing well. Today I'm gonna show ye my skin care routine!
Now my skin type is Dry/Normal Skin. It has changed a lot this year, it used to be very oily but it decided to change dramatically for some reason this year! As you can see already the majority of my skin routine is 'Simple' products, simply because they're really cheap and good ;) You might have noticed there is no toner or exfoliator included here, well basically I felt that my toner didnt do much for my skin and left it red and irritated.And the exfoliator I had always used but, after a while my skin got dry and flakey really quickly after doing so (I used St.Ives blemish fighting exfoliator) and that was probably one of the main reasons my skin turned into the dry type! I feel after doing this routine for a number of months, my skin has cleared up a lot! So heres my skin care routine :)

1.Remove Eye Makeup

My eyes are really sensitive so I love this remover (Simple Eye Makeup Remover) its very gentle on the eyelid and lashes. I pour some of this onto a cotton pad leave it on the eyelid for 5 seconds and bring it down the eye gently so it scoops of the main eye makeup. For the remainder of the eye makeup I go under the lashes with a cotton bud making sure its all gone.


It's so important to take your face makeup off at the end of the day, to get rid of any bacteria that has gotten on your skin, and to let your skin breath.I use this simple cleanser. I squirt this onto my hand and massage it onto my face, afterwards I get my cotton pads put some cold water on them, and clear off the cleanser, doing it in circular motions.

*As a toner I just use cold water on a cotton pad 


To get the glow and radiance back into my skin, I use the Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream.
For my dry skin its so important to moisturise. The Jojoba Oil helps my skin balance the oils.
This smells so fresh too.For oily skin, this would be far too thick, I would recommend you using (Simple Light Moisturiser)  With my fingers, I massage this into the five points of my skin, forehead,cheeks, nose,chin and neck. I especially focus on my forehead and neck where its at its driest 

4.Spot Treatment

Sudocream is well known for getting rid of spots, it dries them out and they're less red in the morning. While my moisturiser is still on my face, I will put a small dot of this on the odd few spots I may have. Seriously anyone who doesn't have this go and get it, its a lifesaver :O

5.Eye Drops

Sorry I don't have a picture here, but you'll see it in the main pic above.I wear glasses , and as I said earlier I have really sensitive eyes and they get really itchy and red at times. So I like to use the optrex eye drops. I drop two drops into each of my eyes, I don't do this every night but I would do it often enough!

6.Eye Cream

Under my eyes get quite dry, so I use this Simple Eye balm. I dot this under my eyes and prod it onto the eyes. I think it feels really nice, especially if your eyes are very sore! Even though I'm still a teenager, this will prevent any wrinkling in the future years to come, this should be part of everyones routine!


Finally onto my lips, I literally cant go to sleep without moisturising my lips it just doesn't feel right. I use Carmex lip balm. Its well known, and such a beauty staple of mine, always using it!
I love the tingling feel it leaves after I put it on!

And that is it guys! I probably should of said at the start, that I only do this routine once a day! I know you're meant to be doing it twice a day, but I find my skin feel very tight after doing it all..
anyhoo, hope you enjoyed it :)
