My weekly skincare routine.. (Sophie)

I always get asked with being in this industry what I use on my skin including facials, products and make up so I thought I would give you a little insight. I do find that because of the love I have for beauty it does definitely make me a so called ‘product junkie’ but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love trying new products although I am a creature of habit and when I find something I like and it works well with my skin I tend to stick to it!

First of all, I drink water and plenty of it I tend to have at least 4 litres a day maybe more and I can really tell when I’ve slacked. I also try to eat as healthy as I can with obviously some exceptions as not only is it important to look after your skin from the outside but what your putting in your body helps as well.

Morning routine: I always start with a double cleanse using Crystal Clear Soothing cleansing gel – it’s a personal fave it’s easy to use, I love the way my skin feels and I’ve tried others and I it doesn’t seem to suit me and my lifestyle as much. I then apply Decleor Neroli Amara aromaessence, which helps to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day and works as a duo concept with my moisturizer drawing the ingredients into the deeper layers, I use 4 drops over my face & décolletage. I then apply my eye cream, I’m currently using Crystal Clear ‘Intense Anti – ageing eye serum’. **Beauty Tip ** avoid applying directly to the eye area this can cause puffiness due to the skin being so delicate, it will still reach the eye area even a little further away! Lastly, I apply Decelor Aroma Lisse energizing smoothing cream which I’m in love with! It hydrates my skin but also gives me a glow, includes an SPF 15 and works great as a primer for my make up!

Evening routine: I know I shouldn’t but I always first remover my mascara and some of my make up with a face wipe! (bad I know) it’s just easy! I then repeat my double cleanse with the same product and eye cream application. Lastly I apply my Decelor mandarine night balm, the night balms are incredible they are a standalone product which means no need for a serum! The aromatherapy oils once breathed in help you to have a restful night sleep, whilst preventing sleep lines and targeting your areas of concern. Now I’m using a night balm I don’t think I will ever change my evening routing it really is like ‘a hug for your skin’.

Weeknight skin treats: Twice a week I love to do a deep exfoliation with Crystal Clear skin polish it’s a way of doing microdermabrasion but at home – always apply to dry skin! Once a week I tend to use my Decleor Intense hydrating & plumping mask I always sleep in it, your skin looks so refreshed in the morning! It’s the perfect product to use after a heavy weekend or when skin is looking tired or dull.

Monthly skin treats: Once a month I do try to have facial if I can fit it in, although I love the relaxation of a Decelor facial for me I want quick and fast results – don’t we all LOL. So I switch each month I either have a Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion with oxygen – the ultimate skin pick me up I love the way you come out with a glow and the mini lift mask is fabulous! Or I go for a Crystal Clear Comcit with microdermabrasion your skin instantly looks and feels tighter but also refreshed. If I can’t manage a facial I like to use the Decleor Aurabsolu instant glow hydrogel mask so relaxing and soothing perfect for a girl’s night in!
