I’ve had loads of compliments on how nice my skin is looking lately. I thought I’d share my current routine with you. It’s relatively simple but seemingly effective.
I always start by cleansing using my Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm with a hot cloth. This cleanser is so divine. I love how my skin feels when I use it plus it smells so good I wish the guys at Balance Me would make it into a candle.
After I cleanse I use a little Timebomb. I kind of use these in place of a toner. I put a few drops in my hands and smooth it all over my face. If I’m having a breakout I’ll use the Chlorophyll formulation. If I just have one or two spots I’ll use the Chlorophyll one in those places and then the B12 version all over. I like using the B12 in the mornings to help my skin wake up and be ready for a busy day!
Another Balance Me treat for my face is the Wonder Eye Cream. I pat this on around my eyes, around the sides of my nose and around my top lip. This is a hydrating and brightening formulation that feels lovely. I use it around my nose in the hopes that it will brighten the shadows around there. It’s fairly unavoidable for a woman of my age to have some redness and shadowing around that area of my face. I also use it across my top lip in the hopes that it will help a little with the crinkles I spy forming up there. I’m sure it’s a backlash against the many years of smoking throughout my twenties. Drats.
I have a new addiction. I don’t know if I can ever not use Astalift on my face! This is the original jelly. I use it like a serum under my moisturiser. You can see results from this after the first day of wearing it! My complexion is visibly tighter, smoother and lifted! What joy! I would gladly roll around in a bath full of this stuff given the opportunity.
Finally, I top everything off with my Zelens Z Matrix.This is another energising formulation for my tires skin. I’m possibly projecting my emotional state onto my complexion but I’m pretty sure that my skin is a good reflection of how I’m feeling. Work has been super busy lately so sleep has been fleeting and I want my skin to be awake with me in the mornings! This has a really light texture with a slightly pearlised finish. I swear it sorts me out with a little soft focus. I also like that it dries with a little tackiness so it’s a great primer for my foundation.
