Skin Care Routine

My Skin care routine 

Skin care is a very personal thing! It is also what I believe to be the most important step to having flawless makeup. Its amazing how much your skin can change from day to day or even year to year. Your skin can be impacted on what you eat, how much sun you get, wether you took your makeup off last night before bed, how much sleep you got and the most common one we know effects the skin the most, DRINKING WATER .

Knowing all of this I still struggle day to day avoiding/ completing some of these steps. I no I should drink more water but that is something I definitely struggle with, also getting enough vitamin D has been challenging. One thing I thought I was on top of was my skin car routine. UNTIL I went for a microdermabrasion and was shocked with what my beautician had to say. I have been unhappy with my skin for a long time so my girlfriends got the microdermabrasion package for my birthday and it was life changing. I have noticed the biggest difference since going. I have large pores that I have fort with for over 10 years now and thought I was doing he right steps to clean them out…. I was wrong! 

I went to EllaBache hear in Perth for my consolation, she studied my skin and the results she had found where mind blowing for me. The one I was shocked about the most was the amount of dead skin I had. This shocked me because i religiously use face masks and exfoliation treatments that I thought were helping my skin. The second was that I was very dry in some areas however very oily in others. I had always been told my skin was oily hence always being creams for oily skin. She did say its hard to treat my new found skin problems because its almost like I need to different moisturisers one for the dry and one of the oily. Third was that my skin was very rough this was a light bold moment for me I had always know this however didn’t know how to explain it. She hit the nail on the head with that one. 

Since going to 2 treatments my skin has changed. I have updated my products and have honestly noticed a massive difference. It is so simple my routine now and my skin feels so beautiful afterwards. I was telling my beautician that sometime I would do a mask and a cleanse and still feel bums and gunk on my face. This was because the products I was using were just cleaning the top layers of my skin and not penetrating down into my new skin. I was effectively just cleaning my dead skin. Let me just add my skin care wasn’t just drug store some of it I had invested in and cost me a lot of money. 

I now have a three step process without all this fuss and all creams no harsh beads ect and I could not be happier and have now referred friends there. 

One thing I have learnt is that ur skin is an organ it is constantly changing and we need to look after it.
