Hello, Beauty Mates! I’m SO excited to share today’s post with you. No matter what your beauty or makeup routine, a good skin-care routine is the foundation you want to be working with. The older I get, the more concerned I get about my skin, especially on my face. I’m not very inclined to use new products unless I’m just unhappy with what I’m using. I feel like I never know how my skin will react to something in a new product and I rarely like to take that chance.
You’ve taken off your makeup, your face is squeeky clean and you’re ready to hit the hay, right? Wrong! Chances are you’re going about your facial cleansing in the wrong way and you’re living in blissful ignorance. If you have very oily skin, acne, irritability, redness, dry flaky skin or dry skin and oily skin at the same time, it could well be that you’ve been making the same skincare mistakes the whole time. If you don’t get cleansing right, this is going to have a knock on effect to the rest of your skincare and likely hamper any progress. I have used the NIVEA Micellar Water 3 in 1 for 2 weeks and the results are amazing. It is a favourite of mine. It’s very moisturising and rich, non irritating and comforting.
Here’s a little science- your skin defends itself by producing an acidic substance called sebum. Sebum contains fatty acids, Lactic Acid, Urocanic acids, amino acids and enzymes. It forms the acid mantle which coats the skin in an acidic protective layer. Sebum is your skin’s best defence against infection, mess with it’s balance and you pay dearly. NIVEA Micellar Water cleanses and hydrates your skincare issue- acne/dryness/irritation, so definitely take a good look at your cleansing routine before wondering why all the treatments you try seem to fail. Happy cleansing ladies.
