S K I N C A R E: is it time you stopped washing your face too?

If you're like me, you have a wide variety of face washes to cater to all of the skin problems that you believe you have, even if no one else has noticed. Oily skin, dry skin, big pores, spots, wrinkles, organic stuff, acid stuff ... I have a lot of face wash. I used it to wash off my make up, then I'd tone and moisturise afterwards. My skin has been improving massively because I've learned a lot about it and I know how to control it, but I don't think I'll be happy until I have china doll skin (unlikely) 

I'm not really sure what made me completely change my skincare routine but I headed to Boots and purchased their 'free from' eye make up remover, cleanser and toner.   One thing I always try to do is keep all my products fairly natural to avoid irritation and redness. If you can't pronounce the ingredient, put it back. 

Every morning and night for a month, I have used make up remover, cleanser and toner to clean my face. The difference in my skin has been pretty noticeable! It's nowhere near as red as usual, my pores are tighter and those fine lines I had on my forehead have faded. I know I'm only 24 but my skin looks way more hydrated. Washing my face twice a day wasn't great for my skin but I didn't really know that until I changed it. Now I'm definitely going to carry on using my cleansers and once a week use my Frank Body face scrub to exfoliate and keep my skin feeling soft. 

If my skin can improve in a week imagine how good it will be by summer!
Definitely a change worth making if your skin is looking dull and tired. It's always a good idea to change your products every now and then. Bodies are amazing and our skin adapts to the things we put on it, to keep if fresh I think you should have a little shop around. Bonus that you don't have to spend a lot of money too. My make up remover, cleanser and toner all came under £6, so no excuses! 

This is official news ... I got wrinkle cream. Got to start early! You can try to slow it down, but you can't reverse it! 

... And this beauty is my favourite spot cream in the whole wide wide world. I suffer with under skin spots so nothing. Has ever helped reduce them except this. I'm sure I've said before, but it doesn't dry out my skin and I notice the redness goes down so much quicker. Just go get it. Kiehls 👌🏼

And finally, don't buy face wipes thinking they're doing the same thing and cleansers. They're only okay when you've stumbled in from a night out and don't know the difference between your nose and your big toe. They're a quick fix. Don't be lazy! Nothing good comes out of laziness.
