Hey everyone, this "blog" is a way to link up with my youtube page, "Themakeupchair" Where I do videos on make-up, skin care and reviews!

Updated Skin Care Routine

So I was asked so many times to do an Updated Skin Care Routine video on my youtube channel. (


Took a long time to get around to recording it but click here if you want to check it out – (              


Otherwise keep reading to get an insight into my skin care routine and the products that I used that have helped clear up my break outs!

About my skin:

When I was a teen I never had break outs, I had the odd spot here and there but nothing crazy. In fact my skin was on the dryer side. I suffered more from dry skin flares ups then I did oily break outs.

However the older I got the worse my skin seemed to get. I was covered in spots, blemishes, pimples!!! Seemed like one would clear up and another two would replace it! I tried every thing - All the odd home recipes, the kitty litter mask, lemon and sugar treatment, and special skin treatment I got my brother to send from American but NOTHING WORKED!

Finally I stopped with all the quick fixes and stopped with all the odd treatment and just used the same products every night and every morning and my skin is getting better and better!

Right now I have clear skin and it has been clear for months now. I never though I would have clear skin again.

The products I used might not work for you, but finding the right skin care routine will. You can follow my routine but change the products to suit your skin type!

Cleanser - Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash

I use this at night to remove my make-up (one pump) and to also clean my skin (second pump). I don’t use this every morning as I don’t want to over wash my skin. Even though I used to take my make-up off at night I didn’t clean my skin too. So now I not only remove my make-up but I wash my face afterwards. I can’t stress enough how important it is to remove your make-up at night Just by doing that you will notice a difference!

Scrub - Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub

I use this once a week or twice if I notice a huge problem. Mostly once does the trick and I will stick to that. Exfoliating is great and feels great too but you have to be careful not to over do it. Especially if you have spots, if you keep disturbing the healing of the spots they will last longer!

Toner - Witch Hazel and Rose Water

This is my favourite part of my routine! I use my toner once in the morning instead of cleansing my skin and once at night after cleansing and I love this stuff! If you are looking for a good toner try looking in the health care and vitamin section of the pharmacy. Witch Hazel and Rose Water are natural extracts that not only remove any oils or dirt felt after cleansing the skin, but it leaves it super smooth and soft too!

Moisturiser - Nivea Soft Moisturiser

This is my favourite ever moisturiser I have tried. I love this more then any other product - high end or low this is the best! I highly recommend this! Seriously!!

That’s it! Stay tuned for more updates on spot treatments and skin solutions.
