Algologie skincare is what I use now and because I have sensitive skin it’s light enough to not cause any skin irritation, and strong enough to give my skin the right nutrients it needs.

Make sure you cleanse your face morning and night
Steps to looking after your skin is really important. Why is that you ask?
Our skin is the biggest living organism and it’s constantly changing in texture, colour and form. It needs to be nurtured, fed and looked after like every other living thing.
You should treat your skin like your bff
What happens if I don’t look after my skin?
Your skin will lack nutrition. Just like us we need food and water to look and feel our best, this is how our skin is. If we deprive it of water, skin food (veggies) and good skincare it’s going to look dull, dry, scaly, and sometimes the surface will feel like sandpaper. When you skin doesn’t get it’s daily fix it starts to build up with dirt and bacteria, clogging your skin which results in pimples, back heads, white heads, rashes and possibly other skin conditions.
So here are some basic skincare steps that I do to help me keep my skin nourished, clean and healthy from the inside out. I hope this will help you add to your routine and get your skin glowing all day long.
Every morning I will cleanse my skin to remove any skincare product from the night before thats sitting on my skin. If you want to use a toner that’s great but I find that my cleanser does the trick in giving my skin a good cleanse. So use a toner if your cleanser hasn’t removed all the dirt.
It’s important that your skin is clean before you start your skincare and makeup routine
Next apply an eye cream (the skin around your eye area is paper thin so this step is important), then moisturise and let all the product settle into the skin for about 5-10 minutes. Now your ready to start your makeup look for the day.
Most women seem to think that cleansing, toning and moisturising are the only things to do, but theres a couple more steps to add to your skincare routine. So here they are ladies.
Using a face scrub twice a week (most are sold with a grainy texture) will help exfoliate your skin and smooth out the surface, especially those nasty blackheads that leave your skin feeling bumpy.
Use a face mask once a week normally towards the end of your week is best. This product will give your skin that extra kick that it needs to really get into the deeper layers of your skin, bringing out all the dirt that’s hidden within. A good mask will draw out those blackheads, pimples and whiteheads. Just keep in mind that sometimes your skin will break out, which is a natural reaction, because all that grit and grime needs to come to the surface for your skin to repair itself.
Just to get you a bit more excited about your skincare I have listed a few high and low end skincare recommendations that I have used before. Sometimes buying a skincare range can feel stressful and overwhelming as there’s so much on the market, if this is the case for you then I’d suggest speaking to a skincare specialist at a department store that’s knows their skincare or booking in to see a beauty therapist for a skin analysis, before you purchase your products. This is one thing I’m glad I did.
