Skin care essentials

When it comes to skin care I’m always on the hunt for some new products. Like I said in my beauty routine blog post, my skin has always been a nightmare. Since i was fairly young, I started noticing that my skin was quite oily and every morning I would wake up to find another huge spot right on my forehead or my chin. I never really knew what to do with them until I went to a dermatologist that helped me get rid of the spots and all of my acne problems. Although my skin feels way much better than when I was in my teens, I’m always afriad that if I stop taking care of my skin the situation is going to go back to the way it was.

Throughout the many years that I had to cope with bad skin, I’ve learnt the hard way that one of the most popular mistake that people, especially girls, make is to not take off your make up before going to bed. That is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. Cleansing is very important to help your skin breath.

That’s why today I would like to introduce you to my new obsession in skin care. My new Garnier Micellar water and my L’oréal Hydrafresh cream. These two new products have changed my skin. Let’s start with the micellar water. This product came out one or two years ago I believe, but I discovered it a few months ago. It takes your make up off amazingly and it also cleanse your skin. It’s super easy to use and it lasts a very long time! I use a cotton pad with a little product on and I gently rub it on my face. Trust me it works. It is also very good to take off your mascara which for me has always been a really hard task. Sometimes when you think you have removed all your mascara you go wash your face and you find black stains all over your towels. With this micellar that won’t happen ever again!

The L’oréal Paris Hydrafresh cream is just as good. I use the one for combination to oily skin but they also have an option for people with dry skin. I use this cream after I’ve cleansed my face in the morning and before going to bed at night. It makes my skin feel super soft and glowy. It also feels super light and it doesn’t make me feel more oily which has always been hard for me since sometimes hydrating creams tend to be too heavy and feel quite stick on oily skin. The texture feels like a gel and it contains minerals and vitamins that are essential to have a glowy and healthy skin.

Let me know if you use these products. I’d like to know what you think!

XOXO
