Here in the UK, the clocks went back last weekend, which means we have had a week of dark evenings.I must admit I am possibly in the minority because I enjoy curling up on the sofa with a good book with the darkness closing in. My soul might like it, but I know that my skin is going to suffer if I don’t look after it, so it is in the Winter months that I truly up my skin care routine, and I am going to let you into my secrets, because they are too good to keep to myself.
Models make it look oh so easy, with their radiant complexion, but they have a skin care and make up routine that they stick to. If like me you had no training in skin care, then let me invite you to come with me on a journey of discovery, as I tell you about the benefits of a good skin care routine, before we even get to put any make-up on.
The first step in any routine is to use a good cleanser at the end of the day, before you go to bed. Dirt and grime accumulates on the skin and needs to be removed. I have found the cleanser by Proto-col to be excellent for even the most sensitive of skins, like mine.
Coral Seaweed and Collagen Cleanser
Before going to bed it is important to remove any dirt from the skin. Proto-col’s gentle creamy collagen rich cleanser will remove impurities from the skin without drying. It is extremely balancing and hydrating, a perfect start to your skin care regime.
Application: apply using a gentle circular motion over the entire face and neck then remove thoroughly with a dampened cotton wool pad.
Plant derived Collagen: A nourishing high grade ingredient that plumps firms and hydrates the skin leaving it soft, supple and firm.
Coral Seaweed: Rich in Amino Acids, Calcium and Magnesium, Coral Seaweed will invigorate yur skin. Amino Acids will help to rebuild and retexture your skin, whilst Calcium and Magnesium will brighten and soften.
Orange Oil: A natural anti-inflammatory with antiseptic properties, orange oil helps to balance and detox congested skin whilst soothing dry areas. The Vitamin C helps to boost the body’s own production of collagen.
Guava and Kiwi: Jam packed with Vitamin C these ingredients will help the body produce it’s own collagen thus helping to repair the skins building blocks.
Chamomile: Natures anti-inflammatory, a natural soother for irritated skin, whilst reducing redness and uneven skin tone.
Neroli Oil: Renowned for it’s healing properties, neroli oil is great for thread veins, stretch marks and scarring. It is excellent for evening out uneven skin tone.
Aloe Vera: One of the most common ingredients found in skin care products due to its excellent healing properties. It will hydrate, heal and calm the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.
As an aromatherapist I love the fact that this skin range has several aromatherapy oils in their products.
If you have been following today’s blogs, you will have already read that I am a newbie (despite being in my maturer years) where skincare and make up goes. I have sensitive skin, so have always shied away from make-up and a beauty regime, but not any more. Now I am confident, because I have found a range that leaves me feeling great, no matter how long I wear it.
First I use a Primer. They call it their “Miracle Base Primer” and that is just what it is! Just a small amount, applied to the face, and is smoothed in. And then you get a “wow” moment, as it goes from feeling like any other primer, to being the silkiest, smoothest thing you have ever put on your skin. You must try it for yourself to feel that silkiness!
Top makeup artists would not be seen without a top quality primer in their kits and neither would we! Create a perfect base for foundation application with this silky formulation of vitamin E and aloe vera. Worn alone or under foundation to increase longevity, this miracle base primer leaves your skin looking and feeling silky smooth.With vitamin E to protect and aloe vera to nourish and calm the skin, the miracle base primer is key in your daily skincare routine.Suitable for all skin types.I won’t bore you with every single make-up product that I am using tonight, but you an guarantee it is from the proto-col range, because now that I have found it, I am not deviating from it!
