So here is the morning half of my skincare routine that has really helped clear up my skin. My acne has mostly disappeared (apart from a nasty outbreak I've just gotten after having a virus). I don't have major sensitivity issues and the redness in my face has pretty much disappeared.
I start by cleansing my face in the shower with the oddly non-foaming cleansing gel from Alpha-H, the Triple Action Cleanser. Some very mild cleansing agents with a dash of anti-bacterial Thyme make this a winner. I jump out of the shower and shake a bit of Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid onto a cotton pad and swipe it over the areas of my face prone to congestion to exfoliate them. Next up is Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum. One pump of this vitamin C serum covers my whole face to help treat hyper pigmentation. A dab of Bobbi Brown EXTRA Eye Repair Cream keeps my fine lines plumped. Finally, a pump of Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF30+ protects my face from the hot summer sun.
To keep the skin on my body as healthy as the skin on my face I use Sukin Botanical Body Wash in the shower on a shower puff. It's SLS free, smells fresh and I got this jumbo bottle for a bargain at Priceline. My unglamorous deodorant is Alvera Aloe Unscented Deodorant, which I've switched over to recently from a traditional anti-persperant. For about a week I was seriously smelly but now I am smell free with lovely moisturised pits (yum!). For the final step, I slather on Moogoo Cover-Up Buttercup SPF15. This is an all natural moisturiser with Zinc Oxide for sun protection. I really love this stuff to keep my exposed skin sun protected and super soft.
