It's so important to maintain an effective skincare routine all year round, but in the summertime it's even more relevant since we all want to ditch the majority of our everyday makeup products, let the skin breathe and get that sun kissed look. Today I'll be sharing my summer skincare routine which is based on Clinique products that I swear by, and to all those wondering, no, it's not a sponsored post! So let's get into detail with all the products step by step.
In the morning I wash my face with cold water (my skin got so much better since I started washing it cold!), towel dry and apply Clinique smart custom-repair serum (read full-on review about it here). Next step is the even better skin tone correcting lotion. Since I started using it, I really noticed the skin tone becoming more even and looking healthier, it's also SPF 20 - let's face it, too much of that sun kissing does no good to our skin. And finally, it's time for the dramatically different moisturizing lotion +. I just love this moisturizer, the texture is so light and nice for the hot days, it just melts on the skin leaving it so very soft and creates the perfect base for my Clinique CC cream.
At the night time after washing off my makeup, once or twice a week I'd use the Clinique turnaround instant facial. This product is a life changer. I apply it on a cleansed face and leave for 5 minutes. Then, rinse off while gently massaging granules over skin. It's simply the best product to refresh your skin, no other scrub can compare to this. For the night time I apply only one product - moisture surge overnight mask. It's creamy and oil-free formula feels so good after a long day. In the morning I can feel my skin being moisturized, soft and ready for another day! All the products mentioned are allergy tested and fragrance free.
