Current Skincare Routine

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!
