A lot of you have been requesting beauty related posts, so here is one topic which is my personal favourite. Firstly, I was and never will be a morning person, waking up early morning is often the most difficult task I accomplish, particularly when your wake call is 5.30 am. Nights have been my best friend from school days & If you are anything like me, the ever so beautiful sunrise doesn’t look so pretty after all to you.
I tend to limit my morning skin care routine to a few basic products with refreshing fragrances. I have a combination skin with an oily T-zone because of which every morning I need my Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne pink grapefruit Facial Cleanser and Daily Scrub. The combo is soothing to skin and definitely stop acne when used on a regular basis. The exploitating beads in the scrubs are very gentle to your skin and uplifts the senses with a burst of invigorating freshness. I would recommend this famous duo to anyone with combination skin to oily skin, both the products have 2% Salicylic acid used to clear dead skin cells. However, my lovely ladies with dry skin, this isn’t made for you!!
My next stop is Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner, true to all its claims of being a refreshing, “shake to activate” formula that removes traces of cleanser, make-up and impurities while leaving skin looking matte. Tea tree oil, lemon tea tree, and tamanu oil work together to keep skin clear by helping to prevent blemishes and blackheads, and controlling excess oil. It may sting a little at first but use it for a week and see its wonders. (Those with sensitive skin/dry do not use this as it may be too harsh on these skin types)
Lastly, if you want a fresh cool feel then the Clean & Clear’s Dual Action Moisturiser is a MUST HAVE. I have finished almost 4 tubes and YES I will buy it again and again. It leaves a ‘GOOD’ tingly feeling on your face when you apply it and doesn’t leave your face greasy or oily. Another product which is true to its claims of being “Oil Free”
NOTE: All these products are affordable and below 50 AED. This is a press release, aiming at promotion to a wider audience. I am not compensated in any way for the publication of this post from any of the brands mentioned above.
