My Acne Routine!

So following on from my last post, I do now have a daily skincare routine to help keep the spots at bay! Some of these products may be useful to you too :)

This is my bedtime routine:
1) I remove my makeup with "Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes"
I enjoy using these as they don't break me out, are gentle on the skin and are made with ingredients that I find are really beneficial to my skin. They are also inexpensive and remove makeup easily, great for oily skin!

2) Next step is that I use my Simple Foaming cleansing wash to cleanse my face. This feels really nice on the skin, is very gentle, is inexpensive and a little goes a very long way! I just use my hands to rub it in circular motions on the skin and then wash it off :)

3) I pat my face dry and apply my "Johnsons Face Care, Daily Essentials Light Cleansing Day Fluid for Combination Skin." I use a light day fluid for my cream at night as because my skin is oily, a heavy moisturiser clogs my pores and makes me break out. This day fluid is moisturising enough for me :)

4) Finally if I have areas of spots, I apply a thin layer of Sudocrem to that area to help clear it up, don't rub it in just apply a thin layer and sleep with it on :) Sudocrem is great as it is antiseptic healing cream and so great for clearing up and preventing blemishes. It is also inexpensive and available in most pharmacys and lasts for a really long time

The last thing I have switched for my skin is that I have swapped my heavy coverage liquid foundation (Studio Fix Fluid by Mac) for a lighter alternative which is great for clearing up acne prone skin, Bare Minerals makeup. I recently bought the starter kit which is a bargain at £15.
You get inside, a small original formula foundation, a small matte formula foundation, a mineral concealer, a pot of mineral veil, a buffing brush (which I love) and a concealer brush. I would highly recommend that kit if you want to try it out before you commit to buying the entire kit which is around £50.

so thats all for now! I really hope this is helpful to you :) have a lovely lovely week
