Skincare Routine For Problematic Skin

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will be aware that I have acne and am forever looking for ways to fix my blemish prone skin and leave me feeling confident and satisfied with how my skin looks. I have tried various different products that claim to work, yet for me nothing has really worked. 

If you read my Kiehl's post, you will know that I had a skin consultation and found out exactly the sort of products I should be using, and an ideal skincare routine that should work for me, resulting in hydrated and blemish free skin. As I wasn't able to afford any of the Kiehl's products at the time, I decided to try and stick with the skincare routine I was recommended but with products I already had in my cupboard so I wouldn't break the bank.  

I'm going to give a little rundown of my skincare routine, both evening and morning - I've been doing this for about three weeks now and I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin. Although my skin isn't fully clear yet, I think this is mainly due to other factors now, it has improved so so much since I've been doing this routine. I would put before and after photos on so you can really see the improvement, but I physically could't bare to do that, soz

Step One

The first step of my evening routine is too take off my eye makeup. I use Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I just put the cleansing water onto a cotton pad and wipe over my eyes until all of my makeup is removed. This works really well for me, it removes all traces of my eye makeup, and doesn't leave an oil residue like previous eye makeup removers I've used.

Falling Out Of Love With Life

If you follow me on Twitter you may be aware that just over two months ago, I unexpectedly lost my job.  I'm not going to go into detail of what happened as it isn't professional for any future employment opportunities, and to be honest, I re-live the moment/feelings daily at the moment and I feel writing it down will make me feel even worse than I already do. 

Although I don't want this post to be extremely negative. I feel as though I need some sort of closure  as what has happened has seriously effected my mental health. I want to be able to look back at this post when I'm struggling and know that if I can get through what has been possibly the darkest two months of my life, I can get through anything. Once addressing how I feel, I want to focus on good things and how I'm going to get myself back on the road to happiness.

Learning All Things Skincare with Kiehl's

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Kiehl's Cardiff blogger event. It was the first time I'd been to a Kiehl's event, and actually the first time I'd ever been in the store. Because I have bad acne, I often feel intimidated when I approach skincare stores as I always feel like they're going to judge me for having bad skin. However, I actually left the event feeling a lot more confident and felt like I had an insight on how to tackle my problematic skin that would actually work. 

The first part of the event consisted of wandering round the store, with a lavender prosecco in hand, thanks Pitch BarI stuck with my blogging babes (Laura, AbiPaige and Jessie) and had a nose at the vast range of products that Kiehl's have in store, everything from anti ageing products to a hydration focused section, to an entire range of men's skincare. There is something for every skin type in store.
