My Skincare Routine | The Top Picks

Long time no see I guess, I will be back posting when I can about all things fashion, lifestyle and university!

My skincare journey…

I often speak about my skincare routine and share the process I have been through to get where I am where I feel comfortable to go out bare faced and feel happy with my skin. I used to regularly switch and swap my routine up, however, over the past 6 months I have found the products that I absolutely love and have really helped clear any new spots or fade away acne scars.

First thing I've learnt that is removing your makeup before is ESSENTIAL!! My secret is out now, but after most nights out in first year of uni I'd always be toooo lazy to grab a facial wipe and take my makeup leaving my skin full of blemishes and breakouts... looking back now it was gross AF! If there is one thing I'd tell my younger sell is take your bloody makeup.

Now though there is nothing better feeling than wiping of your mascara and brows that has been smudged during the day and that excess foundation stuck in your pores... I have been using the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water on cotton pads to gently get all that makeup off before moving on to my fave part...


YASSS... my absolute favourite part is the DEEP CLEANSE!!

I am obsessed with the Tropics Skincare range to get any other little gritty itty bits out of every single little crevis and crack on my face! First up I use the Smoothing Cleanser - Complexion Purifier. It's great to use with their bamboo face cloth as it leaves you feeling uber fresh and ready for a good nights sleep!

My scarring from acne can often get me down when I'm having a red, patchy and blotchy day. I was digging out photos and when I was about 16 my skin was soooo much worse than I ever thought it was. If you want to see the transformation head to my Instagram (@hannahmae_g).

But there has been one product that has been my absolute lifesaver over the past six months... it is again from the Tropics Skincare range, and it is the Tamanu Balm!! OHHH ma GODDD it has been the best for fading away scarring, drying up new spots that are under the skin and impossible to get rid of! It looks and smells gross but it does absolute wonders and when I wake up feeling all silky and glow-y.

With changes in weather recently I have needed to keep my skin extra moisturised as I have found the cold harsh winds can be very tough on dry patches from fading acne, so keeping moisturised is a must for my skin. I have always been loving the Simple Replenishing Moisturiser as its kind to skin, super easy to apply and I always carry a small tube of the cream in my bag for when I'm having a long day out of the house!
