I’ve decided to start a blog series called “In my closet.” This is where I will take you through my enormous collection of clothes, shoes, make up and skin care products. To start off the series, I thought i’d begin with skin care- My current obsession.
My skin type
I find my skin is combination, oily in the T-bar and drier around the outer areas. Soon I’ll be heading straight to the big 3-0 and I’ve decided to start looking after my skin! My latest obsession is binge watching beauty gurus on Youtube. A few of my favs are:
Through these guys I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks on great make-up (more on that soon), and of course, skin care. After identifying my skin type, I headed off to Dischem and Clicks to go about my search.
My current skincare products
Through trial and error, these are the skincare products I’ve decided to stick with for a month or two to see results. However, my skin is visibly smoother and pores are more refined. I mean, who wants gaping or clogged pore-holes all over their face??
To begin, I cleanse with Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser which promises to:
- deep clean pores
- not clog pores
- remove all surface oils, dirt AND dead skin
Immediately after use your skin feels deeply cleansed and oil-free. Not a lot of foamy action, but it does the job, well.
Next up, (if we’re looking at a deep cleanse), the Loreal Pure Clay Detox Mask. I LOVE this mask! It promises the following:
Using three blends of different clays to:
- eliminate imperfections
- absorb impurities and excess oil
Slap it on for 5-10 minutes and what I do is wipe off the hardened clay with a warm facecloth.
