Skin care is a very important part of my life and my daily routine. Over the years I have gone through many not so good skin days, which were horrible, and directly affected my mood and self confidence, and some great skin days, that I loved.
I recall the first time I had like a thousand pimples on my face (ok, maybe an exaggeration) and they kept coming and coming …… and coming. I cried on several occasions because my skin was so painful and my job, at the time, required me wear full make up at all times. And I love make up:-)
I had never had bad skin before so I didn’t know what to do. I remember meeting my sister and all she said was, ‘get ready am taking you to a doctor!’ She meant a dermatologist, lol. Long story short, the doctor told me I had acne…like real acne!! I never ever thought I would ever have acne. And I did. This was the beginning of my passion for skincare.
Since then my skin has cleared, and there isn’t a trace of that horrible time in my life, maybe an occasional pimple here and there, nothing too serious.
Moving on, I have learnt the benefit of taking care of the skin and I would like to share some products that have been good to me over the years:-)
Ps: I have combination skin….
Cleanser – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser , Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
Moisturiser – Estee Lauder DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant & UV Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ( I know the name is long)
Masks – Cinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask
Vitamins & Supplements – New Chapter Every Woman Daily multivitamins and Whole Omega
These are basically my everyday go to products that have saved my skin, potentially my life..
I exfoliate my skin regularly, I like Clarisonic Mia 2 for this and incorporate some anti aging serums (day and night) and more masks depending on how my skin feels. I will be sharing more in future posts.
I drink lots of water, lots and lots of water, skin needs water:-)
