Current skin care routine

How did I manage to blog for 5 years about beauty products? I literally do not know…I literally have 5 to 6 skin care products nowadays and my routine is very basic.Also, no product can completely transform your skin. At the end of the day, I believe that plenty plenty of water and -mainly- healthy homecooked food is key to good skin. I have been using a few The Ordinary products lately and so far, so good. I really enjoy the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, as it has really made my skin tone more even. The Hyaluronic Acid serum is a bit too sticky in consistency for my taste and I don't really see a result. Also, it has been breaking my skin out when I first started using it but now I can get away with finishing it. (Will not repurchase). The Granactive Retinoid 2% emulsion is an opaque liquid, that is supposed to be anti-aging. I think I just like the comforting idea that I am using something before my moisturizer on a day to day basis. My skin does look a bit better so it must be from that and the steamed brocoli I have been stuffing myself to lately hehe.

Moisturizing wise : I like my skin hydrated and glowy, healthy looking - lol who doesn't? - and have been using my cherished Weleda Skin Food for YEARS now and I swear by it. Because my skin is ultra dry, I can get away with wearing it all year around. I barely wear makeup anymore, and whenever I do - basically foundation & bronzer - I always end up applying a little bit of Skin Food on my non-existant cheek bones to add a natural highlighter to my skin. Also, I wear it on my shoulders and décolleté whenever I am going out as it gives the BEST healthy glow. It's just a must have product that I recommend to all of my friends and family - they all use it now too haha!
