SISJ SKIN SECRETS - revealed >

b r a n d  s w i t c h i n g: consumer decision to purchase a product brand different from that previously or usually purchased.
Yep, that sounds like me! EXCEPT for these amazing skincare products. These are my day-to-day skin staples that I cannot go without.
The A.S.A.P Clearskin Gel came highly recommended to me by my mother in-law who is a leading Dermatologist - this is a fantastic product. It contains a small amount of Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid, both of which help remove the build up of dead skin cells. This is not a strong or invasive product and can be used daily. I put this on every night after I have cleansed, exfoliated and toned my skin. The other product and brand the M-I-L has got me onto is La Roche-Posay, a French skincare range aimed at sensitive skin. I apply this gel each morning before my primer and foundation. Both of these products have decreased the appearance of my pores significantly.  
Thanks to my English mother I have been blessed with pretty good skin. When I say 'good skin' I refer to its overall appearance - texture and tightness. The downside of these genes is my struggle with tanning! (first world problem, I know). Over the last two years I have been using Bio Oil on my body, particularly in areas that are prone to extra dryness. These areas include: elbows, shins, knees and even feet. I only apply this to my entire body approx. 3-4 times per week, that's all you need. Apart from thoroughly moisturising all areas of my skin, it has also evened out my skin tone dramatically! Bio Oil also works wonders on scars and burns.
The last two beauties are my trusty Aesop Facial Hydrosol and Damascan Rose Facial Treatment (concentrated oil). I don't think I have ever met someone who doesn't LOVE Aesop. Their wonderful product developers have found their way up my nose into my heart and home (everything smells freakin-amazing!!!). I carry the hydrating mist around in my handbag every single day, spraying over my make-up several times. I have found this not only keeps my make-up looking fresh and dewy, but that it also has a setting effect. The facial treatment is a concentrated oil treatment which should be used sparingly. Ideally it is a spot treatment for dry and distressed skin areas. I have also been known to apply a tiny dab under my eyes when I am super tired - this adds a quick kick of moisture before applying my primer and foundation.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and reading my tips and tricks to achieving beautiful skin.
