Our 2019 skincare routine


We are well and truly into 2019, but why are we still using a 2015 skincare routine? If you're still one of those women that still buy the cheapest moisturiser at a drug store while doing your weekly shop then it's about time you take a couple of notes from my book and update your skincare routine (or create one). Having the right skincare routine is hard to master but finding the right ingredients takes testing some until you find the right product for your skin. luckily, I've done all the testing for you. This is the official updated 2019 skincare routine so you can finally throw out your $1.99 toner and stop reusing your make-up wipes because this routine is your new one and quite frankly it's about time you had a skincare routine. 


P.S You can use this routine day or night 


Step 1. 


This one is probably the most on-trend product for 2019, the make-up eraser. If you haven't seen what this is then be prepared for a life-changing experience. The Vani-t make-up removal cloth is designed to quickly and effectively remove all traces of makeup including waterproof formulas. Are you wondering how this is done?  Well, the when wet, the super-fine specially woven fibres create a hydro-mechanical process that breaks the surface tension of the oils that bond makeup to the skin. The plush fibres reach deep into your pores to remove trapped makeup, giving your skin a healthy and invigorating clean in half the time.



Oh did I mention it's a cheaper alternative to using make-up wipes, since you just need to wash it can you can use it as much as possible? 


Step 2.


Tone. Yes, toner! You might tone your hair but your skin needs it more, if you want to banish those blemishes or improve your skin's texture then a good toner will reduce these skin issues.  Firstly, I would recommend the Kerstin Florian Correcting Refining Toner, as it contains hydroxy acids lift away impurities, excess oil while natural botanicals refresh, purify and calm the complexion.




If you would prefer a cheaper option then a good one is the Comfort Zone Essential Toner. The Essential toner is more of a toning lotion that is alcohol-free, ideal for completing the cleansing step, while respecting the skin balance. 


Step Three. 

Add serum. After thoroughly cleaning and cleansing your skin one of the most important steps is adding in a boosting serum that helps make your skin look more youthful and plump. Depending on your skin type here are the three serums we recommend. 

Dry skin 

The Kerstin Florian Caviar Age-Defense SerumIs a highly‐concentrated formula of peptides and protein‐rich Caviar that contains actives that dramatically diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. A luxuriously rich, yet lightweight serum, it deeply hydrates, nourishes and firms the skin to help reveal a vibrant, radiant complexion. If you want a cheaper alternative the Vani-T Luxe Elixir Cosmeceutical Face Oil works in similar ways by brightening and enhacing the skins natural glow. 

Oiy skin 

Kerstin Florian Correcting Hyaluronic Serum an anti-aging multi-tasker hyaluronic acid that attracts and binds moisture to skin, protects from free radicals, soothes inflammation and reinforces the skin barrier, leaving complexion hydrated, plump and renewed. Or for a cheaper alternative, the Anesi Dermo Controle Serum T-Zone is extremely rich in regulating, moisturising and decongestant active ingredients perfect for oily skin. 

Combination or prone to breakouts 

asap radiance serum  Created for skin that is sun damaged, aged, acne prone and pigmented skin.


Step Four.

We love an eye product that is effective for everyone! Designed for all ages (and genders), Dermalogica Total Eye Care with SPF15 battles puffiness and bags, fine lines and uneven texture with its active Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (I your skin is sensitive, you might want to opt for a product without this ingredient!).



Step five.

Your perfect anti-ageing moisturiser! Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 is a part of the AGE Smart range. Perfectly flexible, the medium-weight formula provides powerful protection from UV damage, while also decreasing the appearance of fine lines through hydration.Using a stellar combination of active ingredients including polyphenol-rich Antioxidant White Tea and polypeptides, use before you head out into the sun to keep your skin safe and sound!
