Hello and welcome back to Bitchin’Blonde! Today I wanted to do a little skincare update as it’s been just under a year since my last one. With my skincare I really like to change it up as I don’t like letting my skin get too used to a product as I feel it stops working as well for me. Today I am going to run you through my morning, evening and weekend routine, thats right it changes at the weekend.
The AM Routine
Lets start with Monday morning, now not too long ago felt like my skin was really suffering and I felt it was because I was using too many products. So I cut it right back to just a cleanser to wash my face, toner, moisturiser and SPF, obviously. The current cleanser I am using usually changes but currently I am trying out the Dermalogica Active Clay Cleanser, I really enjoy clay products as they are meant to help oily problematic skin, like mine so far I am really enjoying this. I then follow my cleanser with the Pixi Retinol Tonic. I adore Pixi Tonics, all of them but my absolute favourite is the Glow Tonic. Moisturiser then follows and the only moisturiser I find that works well for my skin as well as working underneath makeup is Nivea, I love all their moisturises and think they are over looked in the beauty community. Lastly SPF, SPF is so important as I am sure you all know. I never usually wear makeup in the week so without my foundation providing SPF I wasn’t getting it anywhere else so I have been using this Dermalogica one I was recently gifted called Invisible Physical Defense. It does feel a little tacky on the skin however, for the protection of SPF 30 I’ll take the slightly tacky feeling any day.
The PM Routine
For my evening routine it basically follows in the same order as my morning routine. I go ahead and use the same cleanser and toner then I use a Dermalogica AGE Bright Clearing Serum. I absolutely love this stuff! It has really been helping fight outbreaks but when I wake up my skin looks fresh and bright and kind of tight without feeling drying! I would recommend to anyone who is suffering from congested skin. I then apply an eye cream. Now I am currently trying out this Biolumin-C eye serum from Dermalogica. I like it but I am not in love with it but I wanna use the whole tube before I decide wether or not to purchase it. I then finish off my routine with the same Nivea moisturiser all over my face and neck.
The Weekend Routine
For Saturday and Sunday things stay the same however I add in a few extra ‘treats’ to my routine such as exfoliation and masking. For when I have worn makeup I remove my makeup with the Pixi Rose Cleanser, this stuff is great for removing makeup and melting it away, then my normal evening routine follows this. I love doing a good exfoliation on a Saturday morning pre makeup and Sunday evening post makeup! I just feel like it helps remove any dead skin and gets my skin feeling fresh for the week ahead, for this I use a Pixi Peel & Polish, I love this stuff and think this is my second tube! For a little Sunday evening masking I use the Pixi Glow Mud Mask, I love this as it helps to dry out any patches of breakouts that are oily. Then if I am feeling extra boujee in my routine I use these Pixi DetoxifEYE eye patches, I kinda like using these before going out as I think they help the under eye area look more awake. Also great for Sunday mornings if you have a hangover!
An that is pretty much it for my skincare routine, if you have any products you’d like to recommend I’d love to hear so drop a comment below. Until next time…
