Disclaimer: If you are completely free of imperfections and have mastered a flawless filter; you are a unicorn, and this is not the article for you.
Right, so you've recently found yourself on one too many IGTV skincare tutorials in search of the next cult favourite solution to blemish-free skin. You've been double masking, Gua Sha-ing and layering a dozen products in the quest of a glass-like smooth and flawless complexion, but haven't achieved it; you are not alone.
Being homebound has meant extra attention to our skincare regime. With heavily filtered experts appearing overnight telling us how to achieve perfectly dewy skin, it could get a bit daunting for us mere mortals. It sounds great, but our skin is not flawless, there are far too many variables such as genetics, daily habits, what we eat, and skin texture that dictates it's appearance.
That being said, I would be lying if I didn't tell you, I've been a product junkie since the age of 14 when I received my first SPF moisturizer. It burned my eyelids but I was addicted to its soothing aroma of lavender. There and then began the quest to find the best routine for me.
I have sensitive skin profoundly affected by my hormones in desperate need of hydration which can become a little dry when it's not oily. Makes sense? I didn't think so. There have been occasions that I've stared in the mirror and asked: "what more do you want from me?".
Choosing the right products and understanding why you're using it in that sequence is paramount to addressing your skin concerns.
I've challenged myself not to create just another skincare routine. Having researched various methods, tried dozens of products, and prayed to the skin gods for a sign, I've come up with this easy to follow skincare system.
