I believe that having clear skin is the key to flawless looking makeup. If your base is as good as it can be then your makeup will look as good as possible too! Now I know that not everyone is lucky enough to have perfectly clear, blemish free skin and unfortunately I’m not one of those lucky people. At twenty four years of age I still get spots, I have redness from where I’ve had spots in the past and my skin is far from flawless – thank heavens for makeup! However, through my years of trying to achieve clear skin I have developed my own skincare routine which works for me to keep spots at bay. Obviously I’m a girl and like most other girls I am prone to hormonal breakouts which quite frankly I can’t do anything about (other than slap a bit of Sudocrem on before bed and hope for the best). But generally the products that I use and a (fairly) healthy diet plus lots of water are what work to keep my skin clear.
I like to try out new skincare products regularly as I’m a cosmetics freak and I’m always on the hunt for products that will top my current favourites, however my actual routine always stays the same as it works for me and it’s pretty straightforward.
So these are the products that I use.
