I am very passionate about good skin and good skin care products. When you have “good skin” (healthy, clean and & clear) you will not necessarily need to wear make up daily. When you don’t wear make up daily, your skin get’s the chance to breathe. Wearing make up daily clogs up your pores.
Many wear so much make up daily because they have something to cover or hide under the make up.
“Make up” in this case will be foundation, concealer and powder. Those 3 mentioned are the 3 kinds of make up used to cover up blemish, acne, spots and all skin imperfections.
I always recommend and that hasn’t changed to always “invest” in good skin care than good make up. When you have good skin, you spend less on covering up products like the ones I mentioned above.
If you have any reasons to cover up daily, take a break from all that make up and take some time to invest in your skin by seeking professional help or advise on products that will work for you. Try them, if they work, stick to them. Most importantly, be patient so you can get results.
Look at it this way, your skin is what you live in throughout your life. However, when make up is finished, it’s finished then you have to buy more. Even though you can’t buy a new skin, you can have the good skin you crave if you take your time to find what works. Please do take care of your skin.

Today, I will be sharing with you the products I have been using for my skin as requested by you……
The 3 Step Skin Care System I use for my Combination to Oily skin
In case you are wondering what combination skin is. It is the kind of skin where the T-ZONE becomes oily in no time while the other areas of the face is matte or normal if you like.
YES, the oily and combination has their advantages because they don’t get wrinkled or age on time unlike the dry skin that ages on time if not well moisturised.
Now, unto the products……..
This range of products from Clinique has different formulations for different skin types from normal to dry and combination to oily and more skin types. In my own case, combination to oily skin.They have the option for the bar face wash or the gel face wash. In my case, I use the bar face wash. The clarifying toner also differ for different skin and so is the moisturiser. The products are targeted for what your skin needs.
STEP 1 :::: FACE WASH (cleanse)
PROS : Not drying. Lathers well. Washes the face clean. Bar last longer and cheaper. Not fragranced and no smell.
CONS : Liquid or gel is more expensive.
How to use : Wet face, get enough soap or gel to use and wash the face in circular motion. Repeat till face is clean, rinse face with warm water (not hot) and towel dry face or air dry face if you have the time. Follow with clarifying toner.
STEP 2 ::::: THE CLARIFYING TONER (exfoliate)
PROS : Does not contain alcohol. Not drying. Refreshes & purifies the skin. Cleans the skin of excess oil and make up. Balances the skin and exfoliate for youthful skin. Not fragranced and no smell.
CONS : None.
How to use : Use with a cotton pad after face wash. Apply gently and be careful on the eye area. Don’t towel off. Follow with moisturiser.
STEP 3 :::: THE MOISTURISER (moisturise)
The moisturiser to me is the most important step in the 3 steps. Not that all other steps are not important, they are.
WHY is moisturiser very important?
When you wash your face, the face loses moisture. Moisturiser helps to restore that moisture unto your skin. Moisturiser is also very important for keeping the skin youthful, glowing, soft, supple and not wrinkly and ageing.
PROS : Comes with a pump which will control wastage. Glides on the skin very easily. Penetrates into the skin easily. Highly hydrating on the skin. Makes my skin feel soft, supple and youthful. Quantity will last for a long time. Not fragranced and no smell.
CONS : No sunscreen included. Sunscreen is very important everyday. Here is 5 important reasons why you should wear sunscreen daily.
How to use : Pour or get the amount you require on palm. Massage unto palm to warm product and apply gently on the face.
