For many years I have been trying to find the perfect face wash and cream. I have tried many from Avon to Clarins but trying to find products that suit your skin whilst also being kind to your pocket can be difficult.
It’s not that my skin is really awful it’s just that my mum always said, “now you’re over 21 you have to start really taking care of your skin otherwise it’ll end up sagging before it’s time”! So, with the fear of god in me (and terrible skin) I needed to find a skin care product before it was too late…
When I was younger Simple was my skincare brand of choice but as I got older I thought I’d try some higher priced products. I have to be careful with what I use as my skin is sensitive and I have eczema. So, I started using different brands, some worked for a while and then just ended up making my skin feel worse and others just didn’t work at all.
As time went on I didn’t feel any different and certain products clogged up my pores and made my skin look worse. Eventually, I gave in and went back to using Simple, which definitely works for me, especially having eczema, I find it’s extremely kind to the skin.
Now I use the Simple face wash and Simple moisturiser which work well for me. When applying the face wash I use a brush and gently make circular motions to massage it into my skin. Once I feel thoroughly clean the next step is to use warm water and a flannel to wipe off any excess soap suds – I never wipe my skin but gently dab as I’ve been told by many professionals that this is best. Once dry the final step is to simply apply the moisturiser, again I don’t wipe but gently dab.
I think this technique is working but I suppose I won’t know until age hits!!
