Morning Skincare Routine - Tretinoin Hydrating

Sunday, 5 April 2020

My morning routine has changed a lot recently, surprisingly not because of the current world situation and the fact I'm working from home but from using Tretinoin, specifically increasing the strength of my prescription. So my skin is parched for lack of better word, if you're in the same boat or have dehydrated/dry skin these products will be right up your street.

I have put the RRP's on all products but if you shop around there are some brilliant discounts available, without even trying I can find at least £35 off the whole routine.

Pixi Hydrating Milky Cleanser * - £18.00 for 135ml
I was so surprised by the texture of this cleanser, it feels like pure luxury when you wash your skin because the lather is so rich and comforting. Formulated with probiotics, jojoba and coconut it cleanses, hydrates and soothes the complexion. The perfect morning cleanse.

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum - £22.00 for 100ml
This brand was originally developed by a medical centre in Seoul that treated patients with dermatitis and the focus of their products are hydration and traditional medicinal herbs, the main ingredient in this serum is an antioxidant that hydrates and soothes. The texture of the serum is a milky fluid that absorbs immediately and it brightens and hydrates without any oiliness or heaviness, you get a shed load of it for your money too.

Secret Key Starting Eye Treatment - £15.00 for 15ml
Another Korean brand; Secret Key are all about the Galactomyces Ferment Filtrates which are compounds produced in fermentation that are beneficial for the skin such as amino acids, ceramides and antioxidants. This eye cream smooths the area and I was so shocked that there wasn't any silicones in the formula because the texture is so smooth, this hydrates an plumps up the eye area and helps with elasticity.

Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme - £15.20 for 40ml
I love Bioderma and I have a post coming up with more info about this particular line because it is some high tech stuff that excites me as a skin care lover. In short this hydrates so intensely without producing masses of oil throughout the day, it's like a tall glass of water for your complexion and I actually notice my makeup lasting longer with this than an oil controlling moisturiser.

Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish SPF 50+ - £16.00 for 55ml
Can you tell I love Korean skincare yet? In general terms their SPF's rule the roost, I will never use a western one as they are no match. This is incredibly lightweight, produces no grease that I usually associate with an SPF and doesn't make my skin breakout or look like I'm auditioning for Casper the Friendly Ghost. I understand why people are hesitant to use an SPF everyday, most give me horrendous breakouts but this is easy to get hold of (Amazon), fairly cheap (don't pay more than £10 even though the rrp is £16), a pleasure to use and is great if you're oily as it is matte so fantastic under makeup.
