Having a regular skincare ritual is vital for clear skin that is why we’re going to give away our routine.
Every person needs routine to keep themselves on task. Having healthy skincare doesn’t mean applying heavy makeup to cover the blemishes. No, there is more ethical ways to have clear skin without the need to go overboard.
We’re going to let you in on our routine and give you a few pointers along the way.
Step #1: Micellar Water
The first thing we do after pushing all the hair out the face is to apply micellar water. We use makeup remover pads for this. We wouldn’t recommend doing it any other way. The greatest part about doing it this way is we can see how much dirt comes out of our pores.
We start by wetting an entire makeup remover pad with micellar water. We say use the whole pad because it covers more of the skin. As we mentioned, you can also see how much dirt comes from the pores. We normally only use one, sometimes we use two pads. If we have BB Cream on, we use up to four.
There’s no right way to apply Micellar Water but we begin with the oiliest part our face; the forehead. We start from the centre and use the pad in circular motions across the face.
Never wipe the pad across the skin because it will spread the dirt.
Step #2: Sapoderm Soap
One of our favourite products is Dettol’s Sapoderm soap. Our grandmother knew how much we were struggling with acne prone skin in our teenage years. She bought us a box of Sapoderm and we’ve never looked back.
It’s perfect for every skin type as it’s recommended by professionals. The reason it’s second in our routine is because we use it in the shower along with some kind of face wash which we’ll address in a moment.
We don’t just use the soap on the face. We also use it on our arms as we break out in either not-itchy insect bites or sweat pimples. Not sure which one it is.
Sapoderm soap can be found in the hygiene aisle in your local supermarket.
Step #3: Face Wash
The most important part of our face washing routine is to apply face wash. Now, if you’ve read our other article about why you need to wash your face after using micellar water, you’ll know why. If you haven’t then, we’ll explain briefly.
Micellar Water can leave your face feeling a little weird since you don’t wash it off after use. We recommend washing your face afterward. Of course, if you don’t want to, don’t. Choice is entirely yours.
Back to face washes, the best thing you can use is something that is suited for your skin. When you buy face washes, be sure to check the label to ensure you’re buying the right thing. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment.
