|A Happier clearer skin me|
So I am not going to lie, when you have a newborn baby that means total lack of sleep and that can have a real toll on your skin and some days I have looked far from normal with dark rings under my eyes, pale and broken out skin and cracked lips, not a good look to say the least. Recently however the baby has been sleeping a slightly more manageable 5-6 hour block during the night and pairing this up with drinking lots of water and trying to be on top of a basic skin routine I have started to see some positive results and a return to a more fresh faced looked.
I have been trying out some new products lately and investing more time into my skin, especially after turning 30 in September I really need to have some kind of action plan in place, so each night I have been using the Rajeunir Moisture Serum which is formulate with seven active ingredients to help combat early signs of ageing leaving your skin feeling hydrated and moisturised, which it really does, without feeling oily or to rich for my sensitive skin. I also love how quickly it absorbs into your skin and there is no need to use a primer, eye cream or separate night moisturiser as this does it all and a little really does go a long way especially as it's on the higher end of my budget at £42 but this plant & science based product is great and I would really recommend treating yourself to a bottle.
With regards to my morning routine both John and I have been using Flint & Flint everyday wash and the Moringa Oil in it works as a perfect cleanser removing any traces of makeup or oil from the day before and makes may face feel so fresh and really wakes me up, it also gentle exfoliates so my skin feels lovely and clean after using it.
I follow this up with a natural rose water toner and then the Green People tinted SPF 15 moisturiser, as you know I love Green People products as they organic and with this one being 98% natural ingredients and I like the bendable coverage this tinted moisturiser offers while also providing a daily defence SPF and nourishing my skin without being too rich or heavy.
After this I apply some Rajeunir lip serum as my lips really suffered during the winter and my pregnancy so this serum offers lip protection with plant extracts and SPF and works well as a base before applying lipstick and it's really nice having crack-free lips again.
I feel now more than ever that having a decent skin routine that actually works for me not only makes my skin look and feel great but is also beneficial for my emotional and internal wellbeing as constantly looking rundown can have a negative effect on the way you think and approach life. When my skin feels clean and glowing I feel like a far more positive person who is ready for the day.
