I know I have left the old beauty routine slip since having the 3 kids but this evening I made a supreme effort to fit in some treatments in-between the dinners, bathing and tots bed-time. First off was Decleor Purete exfoliant micro exfoliating gel which you apply to cleansed skin, wait a few minutes for it to dry slightly then massage into the skin gently to scrub off the flaky bits and rinse off with warm water.
It was followed by Elemis Tri-Enzyme resurfacing gel mask.. It really tingles when on the skin but in a good way as you feel its doing something. Wash off with warm water and pat face dry.
I should say at this point I got interrupted by the Curly Haired Beauty who barged in to use her Fifi the flower tot pink potty. She was greatly amused by the colour on mummy's face. After explaining patiently that when mummy is in the bathroom it is her 'private time' - she scooted off to carry on reading her Princess magazine in her bedroom. Then I apply some Liz Earle Smoothing Line Serum, to make my skin feel super soft.
I have run out of SK ll Cellumination Essence which was a lovely freebie from Mummy Bear at She was not at all domestic which I have to say was probably THE best facial serum I have ever used. Liz Earle is not a bad runner up but you can really feel the difference on application. Then to try and address the Zit problem I apply some Elemis SOS Emergency Cream to the affected area and then a dab of Decleor Prolange Gel to help lessen the redness and reduce scarring (this really works even on stretch marks and op scars).
Finally to moisturise I use Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and Elemis Pro-Collagen eye renewal around the eyes (only apply around the orbital bones).
There, that's me face done for the evening. Hopefully this will help my skin and it will lovely and renewed after a good night's sleep for tomorrow.
