In The Evening

Unlike in the morning, in the evenings I have more time to spend on my skin care. I still like to keep it simple though since my skin doesn't require much to keep it happy. Aside from keeping it cleansed, exfoliated, and hydrated I avoid most heavy-duty treatments as I've discovered they're almost entirely unnecessary for my skin type.

I have never discovered anything to be quite as effective as Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil; as a first step cleanser this removes every inch of make-up, smells delicious, and leaves the skin crazy soft. To follow up I have been alternating between the Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel and the Oqibo Purifying Cleanser & Toner. I find the the Oqibo cleanser can be a little drying after prolonged use but switching between the two balances this out. I apply a little La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. to any blemishes or signs of a break-out, which usually fixes things within a couple of days. Otherwise I apply La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo every other night to prevent skin complaints. I have been finding the Vichy Idealia Moisturiser irresistible, it smells amazing and leaves the skin feeling rehydrated while giving an illuminated glow to the complexion.
