I think I've never talked you through my skincare routine. Pre and post makeup. If you love wearing makeup on a daily basis, you should know by now there're some products you don't necessarily have to use but also your skin would feel better if you follow a skincare routine.
What I'm going to do in this post is mention every product I use in order. Firstly, pre makeup skincare and then, post makeup skincare routine.
PRE MAKEUP SKINCARE ROUTINE
Before applying your foundation you should be aware that using a moisturizer will help your base stay put together, hydrate your skin and also protect you from the sun's beams. I'm currently using two moisturizers are the moment: Avène Hydrance Optimale UV Light Moisturizer or Givenchy Rich Luminescence Moisturizing Cream - Dry Skin. After applying one of these moisturizers I start doing my makeup.
POST MAKEUP SKINCARE ROUTINE
My post makeup skincare routine is way longer than the pre makeup skincare routine. Firstly, I attempt to take all of my makeup with the Clinique Facial Soap with Dish 150g for Dry to Dry Skin. After this, I take all of the excesses with a cotton pad and the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1.0 Twice A Day Exfoliator. This product is recommended for using twice a day, which sometimes I do before applying my moisturizers and foundation in the morning, but I don't normally use it that much because I've recently found out that it can give me blemishes from using it so much on a daily basis.
The next product I use on my skin is the Givenchy Vax'in For Youth - Youth Infusion Serum. This serum actually makes my skin smooth, toned and luminous, which is what I use it for. Next up, it's time to apply a gel lotion. I'm currently going back to the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel because I've run out of the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. The reason I use gel lotions it's just because I find them easier to apply and blend on my skin.
My favourite eye serum at the moment is the Givenchy Vax'in For Youth - Youth Infusion Serum - Eyes. Uni life is taking a toll on me this year and now I've got spots, redness and blemishes all over my face BUT I also have under eye bags, which are a nightmare to cover up. So there you go, that's the main reason my skincare routine has been extended. Apart from the serum, I've been also using the Givenchy Twinkling Eyes. And last but not least, my favourite lip balms which I've been applying during these last months are the Letibalm Fluid and the Givenchy Magic Lip & Cheek Balm Moisturizing Rosy Glow.
