DESCRIBE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE IN 5 WORDS. Basic, quick, gentle, efficient, and calming.
WHAT IS YOUR SKIN TYPE? I would say combination/oily and acne prone, particularly over my T-zone area. I think deep inside, it's a little more on the dehydrated side though, but since using Indeed Labs Hydraluron I've felt less tightness in my skin.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE SKINCARE PRODUCT? I would have to say Indeed Labs Hydraluron because although I adore the Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment, I don't feel like it's enough when used without Hydraluron under it. I find that the moisturizers I tend to like are good, but with Hydraluron under them, they're great; Hydraluron is basically the best sidekick for any good moisturizer.
TOP BLEMISH ZAPPER: I haven't found one yet so please leave your suggestions below.
FACE WIPES YAY OR NAY? Nay! While they are good for those days when I wear more makeup than usual or when I arrive home late and just want to head off to bed, they just don't cut it for me. I have acne prone skin to begin with so removing all my makeup thoroughly is a must. The first and only face wipes I've used were by Simple, as mentioned in my recent empties post, and since then I haven't used any.
HIGH-END SKINCARE OR HIGH-END MAKEUP? Honestly, a little bit of both but mostly high-end skincare. I'm more willing to splurge on good skincare products than makeup products just because I wear such simple makeup anyway. Your skin is something you will wear for the rest of your life so my philosophy is, if you're willing to spend on makeup and accessories, you should also be willing to spend the same amount on skincare.
WHAT'S THE MOST UNUSUAL SKINCARE PRODUCT YOU'VE TRIED? I don't really trail off from the norm and I haven't tried that many skincare products before so I'm honestly not to sure what to answer with for this question. If I do think of something, I'll edit this.
YOU'RE IN A FRENCH PHARMACY AND CAN ONLY PICK UP ONE ITEM — WHAT IS IT? Perhaps the La Roche Posay Serozinc? I've heard lovely things about it and I'm interested in giving it a go just to see why there's so much hype around this product.
TELL US YOUR TOP SKINCARE TIPS. Being healthy is important for your entire body inside and out. This means drink water, eat healthy, get enough sleep, and stay active. I like to drink organic green tea as well for the extra vitamins and it's also lovely to make a compress with to soothe the skin.
I also make sure that I always keep my skin clean by avoiding touching it and gently cleansing it morning and night with the right products for my skin type. After a cleanse, I'll follow up with a moisturizer because guess what, combination/oily skin gals? Your skin needs hydration too so don't feel like you can skip out on moisturizers! You just need to use the right products designed for your skin type.
