Shocker – the Saturday feature has finally returned to the land of beauty and is focused on something that isn’t in the sky or that can be found in a farm ;) That’s right, my super items from the week are a handful of skincare goodies. Recently my morning skincare routine has ramped up to an impressive seven steps. How I manage to get through them all in the mornings is baffling but it has made the biggest difference to my skin. There are a few new products within those seven stages that really are just super so it’s time to clue you in and let you know what they are.
The first is something that has already had an entire Super Saturday dedicated to it, the Pixi Glow Tonic. This is one of those chemical exfoliators that I use after cleansing both in the morning and evening. I find this isn’t too harsh on my skin for use twice a day, however it does a brilliant job of getting rid of any dead skin cells whilst keeping my skin looking bright and happy. I then follow this step with my second super item, the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist. This is a hydrating toner that gets my skin ready for moisture, it smells divine and helps to rebalance my skin post toner. On those days my skin needs a bit more TLC I instead opt for the Caudalie Beauty Elixir.
The final item is the newest step in my morning skincare routine and it marks the first serum I have ever used during those early morning starts. The item in question is Hydraluron and it is a serum that contains hyaluronic acid. This magical ingredient absorbs up to 1000 times its weight in water and I apply this underneath my morning moisturiser as it makes it more effective and prevents my skin from getting dry throughout the day. Since focusing on skincare it has made the world of difference to my skin, it may seem a pain going through all the stages but boy is it worth it!
