Now I'm not one to follow every single so called "beauty rule" as I am a rebel!!!! The beauty rule I break the most is skipping the important parts of a skincare routine. Now it's not because I don't like using the products or don't see the benefits of using them as I really do, but it just comes down to practicality and mainly laziness.
I would love nothing more than to give my skin a good old efoliate, cleanse, tone and mositurise every single morning and night, but due to the fact that I love a good sleep and that I'm always rushing to get ready this just doesn't happen every single day. Sometimes if I'm really tired lazy I won't remove my make up at all and just sleep with make up on. I know its disgusting and really bad for my skin but we've all done it once or twice right?
I have three methods of cleansing and removing my make up and it starts with the laziest and ends with, lets face it, the best and most productive way :
♥ 1. Remove make up with a cleansing facial wipe (very lazy)
♥ 2. Apply a cream cleanser (which can be done in my bedroom) and remove with a cotton pad
♥ 3. Trek all the way across the landing to the bathroom and use Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
Now each of these methods removes my makeup fairly well, to be fair Liz Earle's cleanse and polish is definitley the best method as it leaves my skin feeling amazing after it but sometimes I'm just to damn lazy to make that 5 second walk to the bathroom.
Using toner is a step that I always seem to miss, I have Liz Earle's Instant Boost Skin Tonic and I really love the way my skin feels afte I have used it but I just seem to forget to do this. Moisturing is one part of a skincare routine that I will never ever miss, this is because I have very dry skin. The moisturiser I'm currently using is Clinique's Superdefense SPF 25 moisturiser. It works really well for my skin, it's non greasy and leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft. I know its an age defense moisturiser and I'm not worried about wrinkles right now but I got a sample a few moths back and loved it so much that I had to buy it again.
My skincare routine isn't very exciting, I tend to stick to these few products and just alternate them depending on my laziness. I'm not coming off too well in this post am I haha!! Hope you've all had a lovely week, the sun is shining today and I'm now going to enjoy some Pizza express with my bestie!! Adios ♥.
