It's Mire here! Haven't done a beauty post in quite a while so thought I'd do one about my skin care routine.
I use La Roche-Posay products as they're perfect for sensitive skin yet have a large range of products for oily to dry skin.
I've got combination skin so tend to have a bit of shine on my forehead and breakdowns on my cheekbones and chin occasionally.
So, to start of with I use a micellar cleanser which works wonders for me. You just need a cotton bud which is perfect because I don't like putting water on my face during the winter. It's gentle with my skin and leaves it feeling super clean. It takes off my make up and any nasty stuff that gets on it during the day.
To continue with I use a moisturizer. If I'm having bad breakdowns I'll use Effaclar Duo. I've read lots of people saying it dries out their skin really badly, but to be honest I just use it in localized spots. It promises fading away redness and scarring and it sure as hell does. You have to be constant and apply it daily dor great results.
To end up with I apply moisturizer on the rest of my face or on it all if I haven't used Effaclar Duo. It leaves my skin hydrated but matte as it doesn't contain oils and it's got more like a sorbet texture.
It came with the Effaclar two weeks treatment which consists of a facial cleanser and the moisturizer. I've been using them both for a week and I love them!
Last but not least, I apply Cicaplast on a few scars I got in my neck. They're burns from my hair curler and looked horrible, but they're fading away and almost disappeared at this point.
(Sorry for the picture, I know the package is nasty, but I've had it for a long time and yeah it just sort of happened!)
