Current Skin Routine

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back to another week on Coat of Cosmetics. So I realised that it's been a hot minute since I last covered my skincare routine in a video and that I've also never talked about it in a post. I thought today, I'd go over what I use to keep my skin as clear and as hydrated as possible, as well as introducing you guys to an incredible line from Clearasil line.


Personally, I like to keep my skincare routine quite basic, as I find this is how I get the best results. Morning and night, I start off with washing my face with the Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Gel Wash*. If I'm wearing make-up I like to do a double cleanse, just to make sure I've removed ever speck of make-up, if I'm not, then I just cleanse my face once. I have the type of skin that I either see results straight away, or I get a bad reaction / my skin stays exactly the same. Within the first day or 2 of using this face wash, I immediately noticed my skin starting to clear up. Any spots I did have were either shrinking or drying up and no new nasty spots were rearing their ugly heads. The great thing about Clearasil, is they not only have incredible products, they also provide some amazing tips on their website. Be sure to check out the links listed below, for some great tips on protection from the sun, a tailored skincare system and some of their much loved products!

Next up, I use my trusty Bioré Triple Action Toner. I have been using this for probably close on 3 years, maybe even more. I love the fact at how clean it leaves my skin feeling and removes any last traces of dirt and oil, that may have been left behind. To use it, I just squirt some on a cotton round and gentle swipe all over my face, paying particular attention to my T-Zone. Due to it containing salicylic acid, I wouldn't recommend this if you have particularly dry or sensitive skin, because it will most likely just aggravate it and make it worse. If you do have oily or acne/pimple prone skin, I would definitely suggest trying it out.

For any spots that have snuck past, I treat them using the Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pimple Cream*. It features Acceladerm technology which helps to fight breakouts, as well as being "clinically proven to visibly reduce pimple size and redness in just 4 hours". As I show in my YouTube video (linked below) I like to apply the cream to the pimple, as well as a little bit of the surrounding area. To make sure the cream, is well absorbed before I apply my moisturiser, I brush my teeth, to give it more time to soak in.

Finally to put back moisture into my skin, I use the Aveeno Daily Moistursing Lotion. Due to some issues with my thyroid, I was developing these awful dry patches, on my temples, which started to spread to my forehead and down the edges of my cheeks. No matter what moisturiser I tried, nothing would work to fix it. The dry patches started to get to the stage, where my skin would feel quite painful and crack. I finally was watching one of Hollie Wakeham's videos were she was talking about the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion and how it helped clear up a skin reaction she was having. Within a day or 2, I saw a drastic improvement in my dry skin, which continued to get better and better. For the time being, there is no way, I'd try any other moisturiser as I have had such amazing results and it's so affordable as well. In the mornings, I apply a thin layer and allow it to sink in before I start my make-up applycation. For the nighttime, depending on how my skin is feeling, I will often apply 2 coats, for an intense moisturisation over night and wake up to gorgeous hydrated skin


I also uploaded a video going through how I use and apply my skincare, which is linked below !

I hope you all enjoyed finding out what's in my current skincare routine, I'd love to also find out what's in yours and what products you are loving !

For those of you celebrating Easter, I hope you have a lovely festive weekend and for those of you who don't, I hope you have a fabulous weekend in general
