Skincare has been one of my most significant loves in the last decade.
During the current COVID-19 lockdown, I found myself diving so deep into my skincare routine. It is one of those small luxuries that keep me sane at the moment. I believe that one of the most important things you can do for your skin is stick to a routine. Routine and looking after myself the last few weeks has truly helped me cope during a very stressful unknown time. In this post I would love to share my lockdown morning skincare routine with you.
I still struggle to understand how people cannot wash their face in the morning – so much dirt accumulates during the night on your skin!
I wash my face religiously every morning with CHANEL’s LA MOUSSE Cleansing Cream-to-foam. It cleans beautifully and rinses off easier than anything I have ever used.
Followed by that, I use the Claire Hill Anti-Ageing Micellar Water as a toner. It is rich in potent antioxidants and phytonutrients. The Native Australian Desert Lime extract superfruit stimulates collagen, protects from UVA/B damaging light, reduces pigmentation and skin redness, it improves skin hydration and even helps to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness.
After toning my skin, I use CHANEL’s Hydra beauty micro gel yeux. It is light, odourless and does the trick for those little lines under my eyes.
This soothing gel does just what it is supposed to do: smooth, hydrate, refresh, and, for me, even my dark circles are not so visible around my eyes.
My go-to morning serum is the Claire Hill S8-28 assist anti-ageing serum. It is a luxe, fast-absorbing serum that delivers scientifically proven, anti-ageing ingredients exactly where you need them: deep down, to the building blocks of youthful skin.
Before I start my make-up routine, that includes an SPF50 tinted moisturizer or CC Cream, I use the Claire Hill S8-28 Anti-Ageing Moisturizer. This cream is rich in natural oils; it also helps to replace lost moisture, fight free radical damage and feed the skin with radiance-reviving nutrients.
All these products are ideal for sensitive skin and forms part of my anti-ageing skincare routine.
Claire Hill is available from Me’nique in South Africa and I purchase my CHANEL skincare from either Edgars or Woolworths.
