My Daily Face Cleansing Routine
my 3-step CLEANSING ROUTINE
At the moment I am really loving my daily face cleansing routine, so I thought I would share it with you. I have already raved about how much I love the Garnier Micellar Water and Clarifying wash in previous blog posts. But I haven't reviewed the St.Ives Apricot Scrub yet on here, so as I am currently using all three of these beauty products together morning and night and finding that my skin has never felt so clean or soft, they are clearly working well together and I have found a cleansing routine I am very happy with and want to keep up.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water acts like a magnet and removes all traces of my make-up, its great on sensitive skin and there's been a few times when I have got the cleanser in my eye, but I have felt no irritation or stinging, its feels the same as just getting water in your eye, so that shows how natural this product really is. I use the cotton wool and soak it in the cleansing water and gently glide it over my face to find its removing make-up without having to rub. I use two cotton pads to ensure every trace of make-up, dirt and oil is removed from my face, I also clean my neck with it too as this is also a place that tends to get dirty. After using the cleanser my skin feels refreshed and super clean, as I know from the cotton pads every trace of dirt has been removed, making it less likely for me to breakout the next day.
Garnier Shine be gone clarifying wash
Green Tea has been proven to be hugely beneficial for the skin to help prevent ageing and blemishes so I have been using the Garnier Shine be gone clarifying wash as it contains green tea, in the hope I will begin to benefit from the amazing herbal tea. The face wash lathers up really well and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, clean and bright. A few years ago I used to wash my face with warm water to open my pores and finish with cold water to close them, but after reading an article in a beauty magazine a long time ago saying that the method is a myth and is actually harmful for your skin, I have since only used warm water to start and finish the wash.
St.Ives Apricot Scrub
The St.Ives Apricot Scrub has been voted the UK's NO1 scrub brand, which I can totally agree with as I have been using it for years and its always helped me remove dry flaky dead skin cells after one wash without being harsh on the skin as the exfoliating granules are gentle yet they do the job. I apply the scrub after using the facial wash so my skin is clean, I then use the scrub and apply it on in a circular motion paying attention to dry areas and my t-zone (forehead, nose and chin), I then wash it off and I find my skin looks brighter and smoother, I use the scrub every other day to prevent any dead skin cells building up.
Have your tried these products, how are they working for you? if not what daily cleansing routine are you using? Feel free to share in the comments section.
