Hello there! I have not done any skincare routine whatsoever on my blog before and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. I will therefore share both my morning and evening skincare routines. I follow a VERY basic skincare routine with minimal products being used, but I have been seeing a tremendous difference in my skin, especially since using the Ponds Products, all thanks to a recommendation by my Grandmother who swears by Ponds. I do however still get the occasional hormonal breakout. I do believe that taking care of your skin is essential, which is why routines help to assist the process. I will admit though that I do not always follow my evening skincare routine, mostly because I’m lazy AF.
Without further ado, here is my skincare routine for both mornings and evenings.
Morning Skincare Routine
I usually start off by cleansing my face with the Pond’s Pimple Clear Face Wash. It has a fresh aroma and removes every trace of dirt and oil from the skin, making your skin feel squeaky clean and refreshed and I have definitely noticed the reduction of pimples on my skin. The product is also said to contain Thymo – T Essence and Salicylic acid, which are both known to prevent pimples. I then apply the Ponds Lasting Oil Control Vanishing Cream onto my skin, as my moisturizer. The Ponds Pimple Clear Face Wash is usually supposed to go with the Ponds Leave-on Expert Clearing Gel, which is applied after washing your face and which I’ve used before and loved as well, but I feel that because I have an oily skin type, the Vanishing Cream works better for my skin. It definitely does as the package says: neutralizes the excess oil, but at the same time still nourishes the skin.
Evening Skincare Routine
If I wore makeup for the day, I start by taking it off with some makeup wipes. I then cleanse my face with the Garnier Pure Active 3 – in 1 Wash, Scrub and Mask. I also use this as a mask sometimes. This product also contains Salicylic Acid, which as I’ve mentioned before helps to prevent pimples. I do plan on doing a more in-depth review on this product, which might be featured in a favorites post, but I will tell you, it does wonders for my skin and I absolutely love it! I then go in with the Ponds Lasting Oil Control Vanishing Cream and apply this all over my face. You might notice that I did not include a Toner in any of my routines and that is simply because I’ve cut them out of my routine, for the simple reason that I don’t think I really need them. Another mask I usually also use and love is the Young Solution Triple Take 3 – in – 1 Cleanser, Scrub, Mask. I did do a review on this mask, which you can check out here.
And that is about it for my skincare routine folks, I was not kidding when I said I follow a VERY basic skincare routine, which actually works 100% for me, because my skin has been looking the best it’s been in a long time.
Do let me know in the comments if you use any of the products I use and how they work for your skin or if you don’t let me know what products you use in your skincare routine!
Until next time!
