Daily skin care routine



So Angelina from Angelina-Is just recently 'inspired' me to do this post on my daily (but admittedly not actually so daily) skin care routine because she thinks my skin is so nice (*≧∀≦*).
To be fair, I was always one of the lucky ones that didn't ever actually have pimples or even acne. Well, I had to be spared from at least one of the 'horrible'-genes.. but I still do take good care of my skin in the hope of keeping it radiant and youthful at least until I reach my thirties.
So here's the things I do, maybe not all of them daily but each of them at least once a week, to keep my skin smooth & clean:

#1 Makeup removal
This is SO important if you wanna keep your skin healthy and clean, did you notice the emphasis on the 'so'? But seriously, makeup, mainly foundation can clog your pores and prevent your skin from breathing. This can make it very easy for skin-impurities like blackheads or pimples to develop. It can dry out your skin and mess up it's sebum-production which can make your skin more oily especially around the T-zone.
Just one more reason to not wear foundation at all for me but if you can't resist, make sure to not only remove your foundation but also to remove it properly! Pay attention when you buy a makeup remover. Does it contain any chemicals or strong substances such as alcohol? Does it fit to your skin type (eg. don't use make-up remover for dry skin if your skin is oily)?
As a person with a mix-skin (oily and dry parts), I have found any oil-free make-up remover to go quite well with my skin but most of all I love the Estée Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover.

#2 Peelings & Masks
This is important to deep-clean your skin and refreshen the blood circulation to keep it look bright and youthful. Make sure though, that you find a good balance to use these products, don't use them too often since they can also irritate and dry out your skin. I do a peeling followed by a face mask once week only and I've found that to be enough for me personally.
My favourite products to use for this are the peeling by Clean & Clear Morning Energy Scrub, Neutrogena Visibly Clear Mask and the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Daily Cleansing Gel
My favourite masks are those of My Beauty Diary - an asian brand which I really started to love thanks to those refreshing & convenient facial masks <3 

#3 Facial Water
You just gotta love that refreshing feeling of a cool, disinfecting facial water right before you go to bed. It's the best first measure you can take for your skin to stay clean and bright. I use the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Anti Blackhead facial water
You might have noticed I really love Neutrogena products but that is certainly for a reason, they are my number 1 trusted brand for face-cleansing products since they literally never failed to deliver what they promised! ;)

#4 Cremes & Moisturisers
Surprisingly the only product I really constantly use for moisturising is the good old, classic: Nivea Creme, it's one of the very few skin care products that I'm using since my childhood and it never, not even once, let me down. I've also been brave here a few weeks ago and decided to try out a new facial creme by Olaz which has turned out to be surprisingly good whenever you want an even softer touch to your skin. 

So that's pretty much all the products I usually use for my facial skin care. I know they appear to be a lot but considering that I really only use about 50% of them on an actual daily basis it really does appear to be more than it is.

  4. Your skin looks flawless, I'm so jealous!

    The My Beauty Diary masks were the first brand of sheet masks I tried, and it's amazing. The masks do wonders for my skin, but I'm always too lazy to put them on :(

  7. I have to admit, I thought your skincare routine was going to be like 30 mins worth of different products - I'm surprised it's so simple and easy! I do most of the same things as you, though I haven't tried facial water, so I'll definitely give that a go.

    I find it so ironic that you use Neutrogena Daily Grapefuit Cleanser once a month - I remember using that for a while because it was pink (why not right?), but it was so drying! I like my Yes To Carrots cleanser much better.

    1. Haha that's what I am, always good for a surprise :'D
      I actually bought the cleanser because it was pink, haha, it just looked too tempting, it didn't do anything negative to my skin though but I guess we all have to find something that fits us individually :) <3

    1. It's really amazing & works for any make-up, not only eyes.
      Although it's kinda expensive for a simple makeup remover it is definitely worth every penny! <3

    1. Ahh, actually I still apply a moisturiser after I've used to facial water - it's just really refreshing and disinfecting after I've removed my makeup :)

  12. Wow girl, your skin is GORGEOUS! I'm jealous as I wasn't blessed with good looking skin. Thanks for sharing your recommendations! I really like Neutrogena products and it's a shame that they don't have all the lines in my country, just a very limited choice.
