Skin Care Sunday – My routine

IMG_1092
Hey everyone!

Thought I’d hop out of the fashion train for a bit and give you something a little different. I thought it would be a great idea to share with you my skin care routine, and maybe help you find new products or just see how I do it. Before I start I always put my hair up and get the out of my face. I use these amazing scrunchies by an amazing fashion designer here in Prishtina. These are the Jora Slishani scrunchies and you cant find better ones. They are so unique and amazing for any hair type.

So every night when I do my skincare this is what I use. I always start with Garnier Micellar Water. I use it on bare skin and if I have make up on, it’s great as a make up remover. What I do is I just put it in a cotton pad and gently rub my face. It really takes everything off, and it’s light and smooth too!

After that I use the Isana Foam Cleanser with cucumber and aloe vera, and just put one pump on my hand and spread it around my face whilst gently massaging it. This is more for just getting rid of the make up that we did not manage to remove on our first step, and cleaning the skin more thoroughly while also calming it down. After using this, I wash my face with warm water and then gently pat it dry with a very soft towel.

So this next product I don’t use every day. I use it more like two times a week, depending on how the skin of my face feels. This is the Garnier Pure Active 3in1, and it’s amazing since it is a face mask, a face wash, and a scrub. It is really good for my skin since I have quite an oily skin, so it helps with getting off the unnecessary oils and keeping it on track. I mostly use it as a scrub, just putting it on my fingers and gently massaging my face for a couple of minutes. But on my more oily skin days I use it as a mask and it just does its magic beautifully!

After I wash my face from the scrub/mask, I always (and this is a crucial step!), use moisturizer. I think this is an amazing one since it is the Nivea Soft moisturizer, which is very refreshing and soft and just keep my face just hydrated enough all night. It has jojoba oil and Vitamin E, which are both pretty essential for the face. I always remind myself to put the moisturizer on my neck too, since the neck tends to be forgotten so often.

The last step I do is the amazing, the incredible Tee Tree Essential Oil I use. It has changed everything for me! And I mean everything! Whenever I have pimples, or a spot that i feel coming I just put this on and rub it lightly on the spot and while I sleep it does it’s magic. It does need a couple of nights to completely remove it, but it really works wonders for me, and I always highly recommend it. You might not love the scent, but it’s magic nonetheless!

And lastly, a very important step is lip balms. I really need to do this since my lips tend to get very dry. Both of these transparent balms are amazing and they really last a long time (they smell amazing too, which is always an extra point).

IMG_1129As for the first extra part for this post, I have face masks that I use sometime. Of course, when I don’t use feel like using the Garnier Pure Active and take a break from it. I use sheet masks or peel-off masks from different brands, either Isana or Garnier, since they are very soft and nice, but also quite affordable.

And a second extra part is this trio or recommended creams my photographer uses, the L’Oreal Hyaluron Specialist face creams for ages 25+. You can get the day cream, night cream, and eye cream. She really likes them and most importantly she loves the way they feel on the skin (super soft and spreadable!) and the Hyaluron Specialist effect takes action super quickly. One thing I can say about these products is that they smell a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

The best thing is you can get all of these in Prishtina, specifically in Bliss Cosmetics and Rossman Kosova. I will tag each specific product on instagram @erzapallaska.

I hope you enjoyed the skin care routine!

Stay safe and stay inside,
e.
