My Top 5 Skincare EssentialsMonday, May 04, 2015
A good skincare routine is essential for everyone no matter your age or complexion, it is key to achieving a flawless face with or without makeup and while my routine is full of lotions and potions there are 5 simple products that I just can't live without. I like to focus on products that promise clean and hydrated skin.
Garnier's new Clean+ collection brings new skincare innovations to affordable prices and this quick break lotion helps to dissolve even the most stubborn makeup while hydrating and soothing skin. It is oil, dye, alcohol and fragrance free. It leaves your skin feeling smooth, plump and refreshed.
Nip+Fab's products pack a punch with intense ingredients (like Viper Venom and Dragon Blood) that you can't find elsewhere at such affordable prices and these exfoliating pads feature glycolic acid to retexture and resurface skin while hyaluronic acid and witch hazel help to tone and hydrate and blue daisy sooth and calm. Wipe across the face daily to get bright, radiant and smooth skin.
Aveeno has a whole range of moisturizers with one suited to every skin concern but the Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer is my absolute favourite. It features an exclusive Active Naturals Total Soy Complex to even skin tone and natural light diffusers to reflect light for a more radiant complexion. It is oil-free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and also has SPF 15 which is a necessity for a morning moisturizer.
Night time is the ultimate time for your skin to heal and recover from all of the stress of the day so Garnier created the Miracle Sleeping Cream. It combines the hydrating power of a mask with the refreshing feel of a gel to fight wrinkles, aging and signs of dull, tired skin. It has Hyaluronic and Beta Hydroxy Acids to help get past the first layer of skin and repair the moisture barrier. Nightly use results in fuller, energized skin.
Pure+Simple is a Canadian company focused on all natural products that help you achieve beautiful skin in a healthy way. This vegan two-in-one exfoliant and mask with Jojoba beads to unclog pores and wash away dead skin. Infused with lemon and algae extract to help increase circulation and Shea Butter to hydrate. Use weekly and let it sit on the skin for 15 minutes to soak in then rub the beads in before washing away with a muslin cloth for rejuvenated and refreshed skin.
