My current routine is all about thoroughly cleansing pores without pissing off my skin with harsh scrubs, foams or acids. It’s the result of testing SO MANY different products over the years. Like you, I started by reacting to acne by punishing my skin with harsh products aimed at teenagers and slowly over time realising that less is more.
Here’s my tried and true skincare routine.
- Remove waterproof eye make up with Neutrogena oil free eye make up remover.
The best, with no oily residue. Gentle yet effective.
- Remove make up with Bioderma Sensibio Micellair and cotton pad
It’s so important to remove all traces of make-up before using an actual cleanser, because chances are your cleanser won’t be able to the oils and waxes in most foundations and sparkly bits from blush and eyeshadow. My theory is that these clog your pores that cause pimples.
