I started a new skincare regime at the end of 2019, which I am definitely taking with me into 2020 as its been doing wonders for my skin. Now I am currently loving The Ordinary, which I know can be intimidating (it sure was for me when I started using their products). So, I’m hoping this can help some people wanting to trial it out!
I cleanse my face twice a day with The Ordinary Sqaulane Cleanser, which is a great moisturising cleanser that doesn’t strip your face of all its natural oils. In the morning I always apply The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%. This is a great Vitamin C solution that isn’t too strong, so it’s great for someone wanting to introduce Vitamin C to their regime. Then after that I use the Clinique Moisture Surge, which keeps my skin hydrated all day and is nice and light for daytime too! Then I always finish with my Clinique City Block 40 SPF to protect the skin throughout the day.
Then for my evening routine, after I have cleansed my face, I either use The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toner or The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. I alternate these every other night (as they can’t be used together, something to do with ph levels…). The Glycolic is a great exfoliator, removing all the dead skin! The Niacinamide is great for smoothing out uneven skin tone and reducing redness. Then I end my routine with The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors + HA, which is a great evening moisturiser (as it is a thick one) and contains 11 amino acids!
Thats a breakdown of my skincare regime, which works great for my skin. I would highly recommend all these products, but make sure to research the products before using them to make sure it would work with your skin too!
