Liz Earle Skincare Routine

Although in my last post, I mentioned that I'm a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to makeup, skincare is something I treat a little differently.  I like to give each of my skincare products a good run for their money, but I tend to switch up individual parts of my routine every few months to see if a change of product has any impact on my skin, i.e. only changing a toner or perhaps a moisturiser.  Throughout the past few months, my acne has worsened, so much so that I have been put back onto Erythromycin for another 6-9 months by my doctor.  Although this will help settle it down over time, I like to try to do everything I can to speed up the process by thoroughly working on keeping my skin as clean as possible in the meantime.  And as much as I loved my previous La Roche-Posay skincare routine, I figured it was time to try something different.

Whilst I was in school, I used to always use the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser to freshen up my face in the mornings and also in the evenings before bed.  I recently decided to give it another go, seeing as I can't quite remember why I had stopped the first time around.  Along with this, I chose to repurchase the Instant Skin Boost Tonic, which I also used to use a lifetime ago.  I was obviously feeling particularly spendy whilst browsing online and lastly the Skin Repair Moisturiser and a few sets of muslin cloths made the cut too when I decided it was finally time to check out.

I have been using a combination of the 3 products for a good few weeks now and I have noticed a fair improvement in my complexion.  Each morning/evening, I freshen up/remove my makeup using the Hot Cloth Cleanser first, sometimes after using a makeup wipe to remove the real gritty makeup.  I run a muslin cloth under warm water, wring it out and gently swipe it across my face in circular motions, using a new section of cloth for each sweep.  It always leaves my pores feeling fresh and the fragrance is so delicate and rejuvenating.  As I'm fairly headache-prone, it's such a soothing scent to use, with its ingredients including rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter and eucalyptus essential oil.

I follow up this stage by then applying a small amount of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic to a cotton wool pad and also sweep this over my face in circular motions.  It leaves my skin feeling really soft and I find the coolness of the product really soothing after a wearing a full coverage foundation all day at work.  The ingredients of this product include aloe vera, calendula, cucumber and rose-scented geranium which I find leave a subtle herbal scent on my skin before applying a few dabs of the Skin Repair Moisturiser to complete my routine.  Due to my acne, I can find my skin becomes very tight/dry, particular around my T-zone area, so I always need a rich moisturiser that sinks into the skin, rather than just sitting atop, acting as a mask.  I think that the Skin Repair Moisturiser may even get the title of being my favourite facial moisturiser ever as it can leave my skin feeling soft and refreshed all throughout the day (making it easier to apply my makeup in the mornings) and throughout the night too.  I have a feeling I'm going to need to buy another pot fairly soon...
