An Updated Skincare Routine Featuring Liz Earle

Wednesday, February 03, 2016

I decided to set myself the resolution this year of sticking to an effective skincare routine, but I've definitely been going out of my way to make sure that I accomplish it. Aside from being strict in enforcing that I clean my skin regularly and thoroughly, I've purchased a few new products to really ensure that my skin will be a lot better. Due to this, my skincare routine has changed quite a lot and I thought it was about time that I gave you an updated version of what products I've been using religiously.

Not long ago, I had never used a proper cleanser and instead opted for either a micellar water or facial wipes. However, after receiving the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser for Christmas, I've been completely converted to using traditional cleaners. This product is absolutely amazing at removing every little bit of my makeup, leaving my skin feeling spotless. After using this constantly for the past few weeks, I've noticed an incredible difference with my skin and I definitely feel as though this product is to thank for the vast improvements and lack of blemishes that I've been faced with.

I never realised the importance of toning your skin until not long ago and this was a skincare step that I often missed out. However, after picking up the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic, I've realised that I really should've been doing this more often. Unlike most toners, this one doesn't contain any alcohol, which means that it isn't harsh on the skin and instead feels soothing. The aim of a toner is to restore your skin's pH balance, as well as removing any left over dirt and oil. I feel as though this is a really important step that has ensured that my skin truly is the cleanest possible.

A problem that I was faced with for quite some time was finding a moisturiser that worked for my skin. I have the problem of getting dry patches, especially around my nose, but I'm also prone to greasiness and spots. However, I decided to try the Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Moisturiser, as I fell in love with some of her other products, and so far I'm really enjoying using it. Apparently, Liz Earle created this product for her teenage daughter, meaning it will be particularly good for young skin and blemishes. This product has definitely hydrated my skin and made a noticeable difference, as it now feels glowing and free from dry patches.

For the days when I'm feeling a bit lazy with my skincare routine or simply want to freshen up my face without doing a thorough cleanse, I'll usually opt for a face wipe. Although a lot of people say that these aren't the best for your skin, I feel as though it is okay in moderation, especially if you find some that provide lots of skin benefits. The facial wipes that I've been using are the PS Love Argan Facial Cleansing Wipes, as I found them to sound very interesting and unique, especially since I've heard a lot about the benefits of argan oil. It is hydrating and soothing, as well as promoting healing for blemishes and scarring. These wipes smell delicious and they leave my skin feeling nourished, so I've definitely enjoyed using these.

Although spots haven't been appearing as frequently as usual now that I've adopted this new skincare routine, I have still had a few rogue blemishes that need taking care of. To treat them, I decided to use the Quinoderm Dual Action Spot Cream, which has been my go-to spot cream for quite some time now and I find it to be the best option for quickly treating any imperfections. This cream is incredibly strong but effective, both removing spots and preventing any future breakouts. I've been relying on this for a few years and it's definitely made a huge difference to my skin.

I hope you liked hearing about my updated skincare routine and if you'd like a more in-depth review of any of the products, just let me know. Thanks for reading and I'll be back on Sunday with a new blog post!
