Skin Regime update

I thought I would make a dedicated update on my skin regime.  I last posted about it in 2013, ages ago.

The methods and products I used back then hadn't really changed until April this year, when I started seeing Sue Guild, at Advanced skin clinic. Sue started me using Rosacure products from Skin Med.

So my regime was much simplified by her products. Something like this:

CLEANSE - remove make-up, with Avene Micellar lotion. This is a relic of my old routine, but it clears my skin of make up.

MASK - I do this once a week. Dermaquest Derma Clear Mask. I leave it on for a maximum of 5 minutes, and it really stings, because it contains Salicylic acid, which works on the acne spots. It makes my skin a bit dry, but clears the spots. I just need to make sure I keep my skin hydrated after using it. I've only added this in recently, since my skin has become stronger following the light treatments I have had.

WASH - Rosacure Gentle Cleansing Gel. This is a simple face wash, and I rinse with warm water, not too hot or it makes my face flush.

CREAM - Rosacure Fast (Evening), and Rosacure Intensive 30 (morning), the difference is only because one has an SPF factor in in for added protection.

SERUM - I have added a serum in called Dermaquest Derma Clear Serum and I am using it every other day at the moment, as its pretty strong stuff, and gives a bit of a tingle, due to the Salicylic acid it contains. I use it directly after washing, before the cream.

MOISTURISER - I add a dab of Neal's yard Frankincense Nourishing Cream at night to give my skin some extra moisture. In the mornings I use a dab of SPF 30 Sensitive hydrating cream from Avene, before putting on make up, but that's another whole post....

Now I have written it all out, it sounds a bit complex, but its really very simple on a day to day basis, and I have no problems keeping up with it.
