Up until around three months ago, my skincare routine was none existent, I would cleanse my face in the shower with my Magnitone, but that was about it. I have always taken off my makeup correctly, and my acne was still always prominent. When I was with the lovely Hannah back in February, we went for a skin consultation at Murad when I was shocked with my results as my skin looked damaged and aged and my bad acne.
My Visit to Murad
Whilst visiting Murad the lovely Jemma advised me on which products to try for my acne-prone skin, and despite it being £80 for three products and my bank balance crying at the time, I am so happy I invested in the skincare which I did. Plus Jemma threw in a ton of samples. For the first month of using Murad my skin was getting worse, and I was nervous I was allergic to it, or it just wasn’t working, but as a few friends said your skin needs to get all of the bad stuff out before it can recover and become healthy again. Sure enough, they were right two months after starting using the products I noticed my skin was the best it had ever been.
So what is my current skincare routine?
I am currently using a blemish clearing solution and a hydrating moisturiser two times a day. Every other day, I will use my exfoliate and cleanser in the shower, and my most recent addition to my skincare routine is my Foreo which I’ll get to in a second. With the exfoliator, all you need to do is pour some of the crystals into your hands. Then rub together with water which makes a paste which you rub all over your face. Since I’ve added my Foreo in my routine I’ve found it super easy to cleanse once I’ve massaged the cleanser on my face, I’ll use the Foreo for 15 seconds on both sides deeper into the skin and pull out all of the dirt. I’ve found my skin is even better than it was before with pretty much zero spots for the majority of the month.
As somebody who has tried so many various creams, it’s crazy that creating a skincare routine and drinking more water has made such a massive difference to my skin. My skin feels healthier and looks less red and dry, which I’ve suffered in the past. I’ve always been pretty wary of my cheeks’ redness, so this has made a massive impact on my confidence if nothing else.
