Skincare Routine | Beauty

I have found that when traveling for work, my skin care routine kinda goes out of the window because I might get in at like 1am really drunk from an event and have to get up really early the next day for another event so for me it's easier to do the full works before and after the trip.

I'll be honest, in the past I've never really had a great routine but the more I fly, the more my skin dries out and hates it all. The problem is I have always had bad skin, the acne scars are pretty bad and whilst I don't have acne anymore, just the odd spot, it has really ruined my face and makes me look far older than what I am. Because of the acne, I pretty much stopped using the typical treatments and just kept my skin routine very simplistic because those acne treatments can definitely make it 100 times worse. This being said, I think I have found something that works for me.

Recently I have fallen in love with Liz Earle's hot cloth cleanser but I have bought it in the Rose and Cedrat, the scent is more delicate than the original. I always feel the eucalyptus is a strange scent, sometimes I like it and other times it's just too strong so for me I would much rather go for a limited edition than the original product. In the past I have used this product and I think I was using it too often because I started getting spots and my skin just wasn't loving it so I stopped, it's weird because this product is gentle enough to be used twice daily but at first I just couldn't get on with it. However this time around, I don't use it everyday and my skin is much happier.

For a face mask I am currently using Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask which smells like Christmas but tingles on the face. It's an exfoliating mask that helps resurface the skin, so you know I love it! Honestly, any chance I get to use products that resurface I am happy to try because if it helps get rid of some of my acne scars or at least reduce them then it's totally worth it. The thing that I like about this face mask is that you don't have to leave it on for a stupid amount of time and doesn't dry hard to your face. You only need to leave it 3 - 7 minutes and let it do it's tingly magic and you are left with a very smooth and soft face, big fan!!!

For a toner I am currently using like a travel sized version of a product because one of my colleagues actually gave it to me because she wouldn't use it, it's the Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence moisturising  toner. Now this product I'm not 100% sold on but I do like the fact that it gives you a very quick boost of moisture, because flying does dry your skin out this is perfect.


  1. I really want to give Liz Earle a try!
