Updated Winter Morning Skincare Routine

Hello Everyone,
Elle here. I know what you are thinking, WHERE ON EARTH HAVE YOU BEEN? Well let me start by explaining. When Kat and I started blogging, we thought we should go straight into BLOGMAS. Bad idea. We are still new to the whole blogging idea and launching straight into 24 consecutive days of Christmassy blog posts was not a good idea seeing as you are posting something for the whole world to see and are not sure what to do or whether or not people will like what they read. We were feeling very overwhelmed posting something everyday, especially as we were worried about the content. One of the main rules of blogging all over the Internet is don't post because you feel that you have to, only post when you have good content. We would like to give you good content rather than endless rubbish! 
So now that that is over, lets get into the post!

Morning Skincare 

1.) Cleanser

In the mornings, I like my skin to feel really fresh and awake rather than tight and tired so I like to switch between the Yes to Tomatoes Combination Skin Clarifying Cleanser and the Origins Cheeks and Balance Frothy Face Wash. The Yes to Tomatoes cleanser gives my face no scent but gives it quite a shiny appearance after use which I don't really get with the Origins cleanser. I know that you get shiny looks with all cleansers but I find that this makes my skin look and feel really oily whereas the Origins one gives my skin a natural shine whilst still making my skin feel really fresh rather than tight. I do tend to not use these at night as when I want to remove my eye make-up, even if it is just some mascara, both of these cleansers really irritate my eyes and make them sting a lot.

2.) Toner

 After I have cleansed my face, I always like to use a toner just to purify my skin and get rid of any traces of dirt from in the night that my cleanser didn't remove. I use the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic morning and night as it has become a staple skincare item for me. To use it, I just put it on a cotton pad and sweep it all over my face and neck for a really refreshed feeling sinking into my pores. I do find that this can be a really important step because throughout the day, your pores are going to get filled with dirt and grime during the day, so making sure that they are cleansed helps to prevent them being blocked. 

3.)Daytime Treatment

 Now I must confess that this has been in the back of my bathroom cabinet for a while and I have only just started using it recently. I haven't noticed a massive difference in my skin, especially seeing as I have been breaking out a lot recently but I guess the more I use it the more it will help. This product is the Clear Start Breakout Clearing Daytime Treatment. I cannot really review this item because I have only started using it, but I use this item all over my face just like a moisturiser but I use a lot less as if I was using a serum.

4.) Moisturiser

 My morning moisturiser is the Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser.
I really like this moisturiser as it is very hydrating especially when your skin can feel a lot dryer and tighter during the Winter months. It is exceptionally cheap for the quality and after I use this it makes my skin feel really fresh and healthy :) To use this product you simply (if you pardon the pun) massage it into your face and neck to get that lovely fresh feeling. I find that in the mornings, my skin gets really tight and tired and dehydrate especially, but when I put this on, it wakes me up completely!

Thank you for reading and I will see you soon with a new post!

See you soon,
