My Summer Skincare Routine

By  | 

I love watching and reading about peoples skincare routines. I find it so interesting the amount of products people use, the almost non-existent products people use and the types of products everyone is using.

You hopefully already know that i used to have a terrible skincare routine, consisting of a makeup wipe. That was literally my skincare routine, a makeup wipe.

I then advanced onward and upwards and found myself with some soap and water and really thought i was moving up in the world.

Luckily, that’s all changed and I do have a skincare routine. This is my old one that you can check out here but this one is new and improved and I’ve really noticed a HUGE improvement in my skin.


My Summer Skincare Routine


I didn’t mention this at the start but this is more of a ‘night time’ skincare routine. I don’t really do anything to my skin on a morning, I sometimes use some micellar water if i’m feeling my skin needs a little pick me up but, i don’t tend to do anything.

(I am laughing right now thinking in a few weeks from now when i decide that’s a bad idea and do a morning skincare routine because i realized i was a bad person’).


My summer skincare routine is pretty simple but it makes my skin really extremely clean and fresh and just like i said before I have noticed a huge difference in my skin.


My Summer Skincare Routine (1)

You may know already but I am currently living in a really hot country, right about now it’s too hot to even function. I am not exaggerating when I say some days you feel like you can’t breathe from the heat.

I have pale, white, sensitive skin which means I have to wear factor 50 on my face all day everyday. I have done this for virtually my whole life and it makes me shudder to think i just used to remove the sunscreen with a makeup wipe. (13)

The first thing i use when I am getting ready for bed is a Simple Spotless Skin Cleansing Wipe. I absolutely love these wipes, they not only remove makeup but they are meant to help fight spots and you’re meant to notice a difference after day 1, they are new to my collection but they are definite must in my summer skincare.

I don’t know if i notice a huge difference before and after using them but something is working in this skincare routine because like i keep annoyingly say, my skin looks great, for once.

Once all of my makeup and sunscreen is happily removed, i move on…

This could be a few minutes or a few hours after I’ve used my wipe but, I head in to the bathroom and pick up my Soap & Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash . Just like the wipes this is a new addition to my skincare but I have been using it every single day since I bought it. (14)

It’s really refreshing and makes my skin feel super clean. I hate the thought of sleeping with residue on my face so i scrub in the facial wash for a good few minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Not every single night but nights if I’ve been wearing a lot of makeup, if I’ve been sweating or even if I’ve just been at the beach I then grab some of my Micellar Water, a cotton pad and apply it liberally around my face. (15)

I probably put on WAY too much but, i love the smell and feel of it and if I do have any leftover mascara on my lashes it just completely takes it away.

The last thing I do is apply some moisturizer around my eyes, my neck and a small amount on to my forehead. I use two different moisturizers. (16) (17)

Nivea soft which is my go to that I never stop talking about in virtually every single one of my blog posts. It’s cheap and really amazing so, if you’re looking for something that’s inexpensive and does a good job, you need to check it out. I also use this new one my mum bought for me from L’Oreal. I love both of them and it really just depends on the day which one I use!


I really hope you enjoyed reading about my summer skincare routine, if you did please let me know in the comments below and let me know your summer skincare routine!
