My clean skin care routine

Nothing feels better than a clean, smooth and flawless skin. But sadly, not all of us can have and enjoy a skin like this.

I know that I don’t have the perfect skin, but I try to do my best. Today I’m going to show you my skin routine and some tips that maybe are useful for you too.

I’m going to start explaining what do I do at nights.

Some days I’m very tired and I don’t want to do my skin routine, BUT YOU HAVE TO DO IT, so just do it.

Remove your makeup gently with some micellar water (post about it here) and then wash your face to get rid of that oly skin that you use to have at the end of the day (if you tend to have oily skin like me).

The micellar water that I currently use is the “Cleanance  eau micellaire for peaux grasses à imperfections”  from Avène and the cleansing soap is the “Advantage daily cleanser” from Clean & Clear.

If you are using any skin treatment this is the best time of the day to use it! At nights the skin “breathes” and this is better, because your skin will absorb better the treatment making it more efficient.

The next morning you’ll have to wash your face again to remove again all the oils and remainders of your treatments (if you use any).

Once my skin is clear it’s time to use my moisturizer. I’m using “Moisturizing cream for oily skins HYDRA+” or “Pure Active anti-imperfection 24hrs moisturiser” from Garnier.

Now you’re ready to go or to put on some makeup!

Homemade face masks

Today I’m feeling good and I want to do something useful for myself. And I decided to show you some homemade face masks that I love.

Sooooooo, let’s get started!

1· For all the skin types:

1 tablespoon oatmeal (finely ground)

1 tablespoon yogurt (better organic yogurt and this musn’t be flavored)

A few drops of honey

Preparation: Mix all together with the drops of honey (should be warm).

Apply the mask to the face and leave it on for 10 minutes.

That’s all!

 2· Oily and acne-prone skin:

6 fresh strawberries

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preparation: De-stem the strawberries and grind them. Add lemon juice, brown sugar and honey. Blend all together until a paste is made (if the paste is too watery, add a teaspoon of flour).

Then apply mask to face for 10 minutes and remove with warm water!

 Dry or chapped skin:

½ ripe avocado

¼ cup honey

Preparation: Mash the avocado in a bowl, then mix with the honey.
Apply to skin and leave for 10 minutes.
Wash away face with a cool washcloth!

I hope that this 3 face masks inspired you to do it at home and please tell em in the comment box what type of skin do you have to someday tell you more recipes!
