My Skincare Routine*

I have struggled with my skin for as long as I can remember, it is combination and acne prone specifically on my cheeks so when it comes to finding products that won't break me out... let's just say it's a mission. However, recently I have seen an improvement. It's not perfect but a lot better than this time 6 months ago with my biggest struggle being the scarring left over from the acne. I have also found keeping my products as natural as possible is also great opposed to acids found in many products.

In the mornings I keep it simple. I wash my face with The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Wash alongside a face cloth which I replace every other day to prevent the spread of bacteria. I have used this face wash for the last year or two so you might have heard me mention it before but I really swear by this product a lot! I then follow this with The Body Shop Seaweed Moisturiser which keeps my face hydrated in drier areas but also combats the oiliness of my t-zone. 

Moving onto the evening to remove my makeup I use a face cloth, warm water, and the Tea Tree Face Wash I used in the morning or every other day, The Body Shop Tea Tree Scrub which helps exfoliate the skin and cleans deeper into the pores. After drying off my face I remove any final traces of yuckiness from my pores with the Garnier Micellar Water on a cotton pad.

I then follow this with The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner then some new products I have only recently discovered from Organic Young who kindly sent me out a few things to #greenyouroutine. They are organic and cruelty-free with an ethical practice plus no nasty chemicals focusing on sensitive skin. I also love the fact 10% of their profits go to charity! Making it in my eyes an AMAZING brand! On the subject of there products, favourites  my favourites are the Clear Skin Cleansing Moisturiser containing Green Tea which really helps to refresh the skin. A little goes a long way too which is great. I then follow with the Clear Skin Purifying Serum which contains tea tree and willow bank on any problem areas. 

Alternatively to this if I find a particularly bad blemish I use The Body Shop tea tree targeted gel which stings when you put it on but I like that as I know it's working! Once a week I also apply The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask which is great a cleansing the skin and really giving it a good refresh.
