MY CHRISTMAS SKINCARE ROUTINE
It’s the magical Christmas and New Years eve season which means only one thing; a lot of parties are on the way! During the festive season, it is a must to relax and celebrate, but this can have such a damaging effect on your skin. Late nights, cold weather and overindulging can leave us with dry skin and cause breakouts
As I enjoy a lot of feasts and celebrations leading up to the end of the year, I have made sure to focus on my daily skincare routine over the Christmas break. It’s no secret that Bioderma is one of my favourite skincare brands – high quality and gentle but effective on my sensitive, troublesome skin.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS FROM MY CURRENT SKINCARE ROUTINE THAT HAVE HELPED ME MAINTAIN GLOWING AND HEALTHY SKIN THIS CHRISTMAS!
1. TO REMOVE MY MAKE-UP
Always take your makeup off, and do it properly! I usually do this as soon as I get in the house. If I get lazy about removing my makeup, it soon shows up over the following days. The Sensibio Micellar Water is an all-time favourite of mine. Compared with other micellar waters it is so gentle that it doesn’t irritate my eye area. It always removes even the most resistant makeup and leaves me with a fresh face. Just pop some on a few cotton pads, hold for a few seconds then wipe – with minimal effort it removes all of my makeup.
2. EYE CARE
Another item from the Bioderma Sensibio collection is their eye contour gel. This product is one that I have been using every morning before I put on my makeup and every evening after using my micellar water. It helps to soothe the tired, dark circles under the eyes after a late night holiday party! Perfect for moisturising, soothing and reducing any dark circles during this busy month.
3. NOURISH THE SKIN
In winter months, our skin can quickly become much drier so it is essential to use the right products. I like to use the Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Crème as a lightweight moisturiser. I have oily but dehydrated skin, so this is perfect as it designed for normal to combination sensitive skin. This is the third step in my skincare routine, just applying one pump to my whole face in the morning and evening. It is light with no residue and sits well as a makeup base.
4. SEVERE BLEMISHES
This final step is tailored to my skin needs, an intensive purifying care for my acne prone skin. Again I use this morning and night; the product works well as a makeup base as it absorbs quickly and has a light mattifying and hydrating texture.
