SKIN CARE: Time to get excited

Hey Everyone❤️

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Skin Care can be overwhelming, especially if you’re on a Student Budget like me! 

I worked at The Body Shop for over a year and had some specific training.

I’ve simplified and cheap-ified into the perfect Night Routine💤

Firstly, 2 Reasons to have a Regular Skin Care Routine:

a) Leaving Make-up on over night accelerates ageing

b) Residue Oil/Make-up can clog up your pores: Acne/Spots

Here are 6 Stages! (All are Optional of course!)

Stage 1: Oil-Based Cleanser

The oil strips through the cake and paves the way to clearing away the gunk.

I Use: https://www.thebodyshop.com/en-gb/range/view-all/camomile-sumptuous-cleansing-butter/p/p000186 (£10)

Stage 2: Micellar Water with Cotton Pad

This removes the oil-based cleanser and removes any residue makeup or oil.

I Use: http://www.boots.com/en/Garnier-Micellar-Cleansing-Water-400ml_1440752/ (£4.99)

Stage 3: Eye Make-Up Remover (for Eyeliner)

This is for when you have waterproof mascara or eyeliner that won’t budge!

I Use: http://www.boots.com/en/Lancome-Bi-facil-125ml-For-All-Types-of-Eye-Make-up-Including-Waterproof-Products_5849/ (£21.50)

Stage 4: Alcohol-Free Toner with Cotton Pad

This step is extremely satisfying to get rid of any excess oil or residue. Alcohol-Free is gentler and works even for sensitive skin.

I Use: https://www.thebodyshop.com/en-gb/my-skin-type/soothed-hydrated-skin/aloe-calming-toner/p/p000169 (£7)

Stage 5: Facial Oil or Serum

Treat your skin/moisturise your face over night. Olive Oil/Coconut Oil works too!

I Use: http://www.hollandandbarrett.com/shop/product/dr-organic-moroccan-argan-oil-facial-oil-60003998 (£14.99)

Stage 6: Thick Moisturisers

This Works.

Don’t forget nobody’s perfect! But, we can all aim to improve our skin to some extent. For me, there’s no better way to get ready for bed!🌃
