Up Your Skincare Game For 2017*

Skincare is such a love of mine, you can read all about it here. I love all the brilliant products, the motion of taking off your makeup and the results! With it being a new year I thought today would be a brilliant idea to give you some ideas on upping your skincare! Mine has changed so much in the last two years and before that I didn't even have one! Everyone has their loves in products and everyone has a way they love to use them so today I thought this post would be helpful for those who are ready to change their routine or want one!

The first thing I would say do is invest in a face brush. I know a lot of people do see these as a fad, just like electric toothbrushes but now everyone has one and dentists love them. It's the same with face brushes. They dig deep into the pores, remove more makeup, clean the tzone, are gentle and help clear the skin! I have my own and using it everyday has helped clear my skin from oil, large pores and I know my face is clean! A brush on the market to look into is the Panasonic Electric Facial Brush costing £149.99. This brush comes with two heads, a large soft brush which create a foam that aids gentle deep cleansing, a pore focus brush which targets the pores around the T-zone for deep cleansing and something amazing! This brush also comes with a warming makeup removal plate that heats the skin gently to make removal easier! With this brush you add the cleanser into the brush with a little water so the brush head creates a foam with a product of your choice!


Creating a skincare routine consists of products that you use in a order. Each that suit your skin type and what you like! Keeping it simple is key and adding only the best and making sure you do the main thing, look after it!

Cleansing the skin is vital if you wear makeup, getting rid of that days worth of makeup is the best thing you can do for your skin. No matter how tired you are get it off! There are so many amazing products out there from wipes, waters and creams. I always find adding water into the mix is the best option. A product perfect for this would be the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Gel. You apply it to wet skin and really work it in over your face and use circular motions over the eyes and lips. In the morning do the same again ready for the day as at night your lying on a pillow which isn't clean unless you wash it everyday and dirt and oil does build up.

Next is a face mask that you use twice a week. Not only are they super relaxing but they each have their own amazing treatments. You can get ones that help out with breakouts, redness, adding a glow. One thing you need more than anything is moisture and using a good face mask is a great way to help repair the skin and add more! Adding more moisture to your face helps keep the skin plump, makes the skin look healthy and adds radiance. Using something like Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask will make such a difference. Apply it to dry clean skin and leave it for five minutes, rinse off and your done, perfect for use in the bath!

After you have your clean face and have used your face mask you need to moisturise. No matter what that face mask said you still need to add another! Not only will you have hydrated skin but it makes such a perfect base for makeup and helps stop the dreaded cake! With the amount of moisturisers out there you are sure to find something that suits your needs. I like one without SPF as I like to add my own but you could opt for one with it! You have different forms of moisturisers, the most known are cream and gel. Gel dries a lot faster than cream and they realise moisture all day! Something like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser. Just apply to skin and work in circular motions and your set!

Eyes are always forgotten. They are different to the rest of your face and should be treated with care. Have you noticed you shouldn't apply a face mask to the eye area? Using something on your eyes can help with a range of issues that look big but they are easily sorted! Dry eyes, puffiness, dark circles will be a thing of the past! Your eyes are constantly in use and they are attacked by the cold, wind and sun. Products that are made for the eye area contain a range of things that help keep your eyes hydrated and prevent damage and irritation. Something like the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream is a great place to start, just a small amount dabbed around the eye in the morning will have your eyes bright and ready for the day!

Lastly is a skin oil/serum. I think these are over looked sometimes! Using this on fresh clean skin that has been moisturised is the way to get the most out of it! Layering products help build up a barrier that in turn helps your skin more and you can also get one thing out of one product and another in one night! Skin oil/serum strengthens the skins vital lipid barrier which helps lock in moisture and boosts skin health. Aim for an anti-ageing not only does it fight wrinkles but makes your skin super soft. To get the most out of one you should use it just before bed. A product to look at is REN Vita Mineral Omega 3 Oil.

Adding things into your routine can change everything with your skin. Look at what you want and find products that can help. Just remember that taking care of your skin doesn't start when your thirty, it starts now! Hopefully you gained some inspiration from this post and some ideas on what you need!
