Like I mentioned in my post yesterday, it’s all change whenever a new season rolls in and that includes my skincare routine. My skin reacts differently to the cooler weather so naturally it’s best to change the products to something that suits better. In the summer I tend to suffer from oily skin. I’m sure it has a lot to do with it being warmer and of course sweating. I’m not one of these people who has skin that magically clears up in the sun, I still get those horrible annoying pimples whatever the weather, but in the cooler months I also have to battle dry patches on my cheeks and of course the horrendous plague of chapped lips.
As a mother, and someone who is self employed, I need a skincare routine that is quick and easy. I only have time maybe one evening a week for a face mask so I need something that really does the job. Capital Hair and Beauty has a great range of affordable skincare that has recently caught my eye, so here are my picks for what would make up my busy girl routine this Autumn.
I’m a firm believer in cleanse, tone and moisturise. Ever since I embraced this into my routine I’ve seen some huge changes in how my skin reacts to products, in a good way of course. So I’d start with the Kaeso Mulberry & Pomegranate Calming Cleanser, the pump makes it so easy to apply. Typically I use my fingers to apply cleanser then a clean cotton wool ball to remove the excess and of course the make up. I’d follow that up with the Strictly Professional Toner for Normal/Dry skin. This is the first change I’d make from summer. In summer I’d go with something that controls excess oil, but now with the dry areas I have to go with something more suited to normal and dry skin. Finally, to complete my routine for in the morning and evening I’d go for a moisturiser suited to combination skin such as the Strictly Professional Moisturiser for Oily/Combination Skin. The pump once again makes it super easy and quick to apply.
Once a week I like to give my skin a good scrub, for this I’d choose Strictly Professional Facial Exfoliate with Olive Stone, Sweet Almond and Peach. I LOVE sweet almond, it’s one of my favourite products. I use the scrub on my face while in the shower and I feel like my skin is super clean afterwards. And then one night a week I like to use a face mask. Strictly Professional Deep Cleansing Mask that will clean away all the dirt blown into my face by those autumn winds.
