I am one of those people who go by the golden saying “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it?” As a result, I have been using the same basic skincare products since I was 13. True, essential skincare at beginner level.
Say no to over the top routines…
I owe it all to my Mum who was incredibly sympathetic of my dry skin. Knowing full well what my teenage hormones would put it through. So she got me moisturising early. What a relief she did too. I am not the most persistent person, so a skincare routine with 12 different moisturising and exfoliating steps was never going to be for me. Or most teenagers at that matter.
Liz Earle, 3 step essential skincare…
The Liz Earle skincare range incorporates a range of naturally active ingredients into a 3 step face care routine. That very routine got me through high school with a relatively smooth, spot free and unscathed complexion.
Step 1: Cleanse
The Cleanse and Polish cleanser is a great in the morning and just before bed as the first step in your skin care routine. The unique pump makes it super easy to get the perfect amount, no mess or struggle with difficult tubes. It takes of all make-up too but is still gentle on the skin. The Muslin cloth used to wipe of the residue also acts and a gentle exfoliator, buffing away at the dead skin cells in order to leave it fresh.
Step 2: Toner
The Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic is used to refresh and revitalise the skin after Cleansing. It’s perfect for perking up dull looking skin. Especially if you suffer for dryness in the Winter.
Step 3: Moisturise
Finish with the Skin Repair Moisturiser to add back in the moisture to your skin that you lose from washing. It repairs the skin cells that are damaged from the everyday weather and makeup elements.
If you haven’t tried Liz Earle before then I recommend you give it a go. On the official webstore they offer a ‘Healthy, Beautiful Skin Kit’ which features the 3 products and muslin cloth I mentioned here (in smaller travel size bottles) for just £23.
