The Secret to Clear Skin

The Secret to clear flawless skin. Cleansing is key and a crucial step in your skincare regime. If you use wipes for your evening and morning cleanse, now maybe a time to rethink your routine.  I have been favouring super natural techniques of late, ie cleansing my face with cooled boiled water. However I had been noticing these tiny bumps appearing on my skin and was starting to think that perhaps the cooled boiled water wasn't quite cleaning my skin to its utmost.

I happened to have The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Clay Wash, so I thought I would give it a go. My skin after the first use looked clearer somehow, smoother and felt incredibly soft. I believe this really cleansed my pores deeply and the bumps appeared be smaller even after just one use.

I have been using this to remove my makeup, however I would suggest that if you wear a more than natural makeup you may want to cleanse with a makeup remover first and perhaps use this after. On the back of the bottle it reads that this is a Daily wash so you could just use it as your morning cleanse.

This grey creamy clay wash is definitely helping clear the acne on my back and shoulders. The marks left from previous spots are fading and I don't appear to be getting new spots either. This daily wash is most definitely keeping my complexion fresh and clear. I would highly recommend this if your skin is looking a little dull and needs a boost. It seems to have given my skin a reboot and my skin has a fresh clear glow to it.

I would suggest if you have rosacea that this product won't be for you.  The charcoal ingredients tend to exacerbate rosacea as the charcoal powder is unable to tell the difference between dead skin cells and facial skin so it can exacerbate rosacea.  If this is you take a look at my post Clear Up Your Acne With Either of These Two Successful Techniques

I decided to pair this once a week with one of The Body Shop's Expert Face Masks. The Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask feels immediately cooling and a little tingly on application of the skin. It has tiny grains in it that exfoliate dead skin cells as well.   After ten minutes I washed away the mask and my skin again looked clear, bright and felt  polished.  My pores felt cleansed at a new deeper level and I certainly could see a difference.

I have been keeping my routine super simple and just been using The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner and Moisture Day Cream during the day which is fantastic as Vitamin E is known to be a powerful antioxidant which means it is fighting off skin damaging free radicals keeping your skin beautifully youthful for longer.

In the evening I have twice a week been opting for one of the Sleeping Masks, which are just so hydrating and soothe your skin over night.

To see these products in action and to hear my full review take a look at my YouTube Video The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Clay Face Wash

If you are looking for a new skin care routine definitely check out The Body Shop products, they are reasonably priced and have given my skin an unbelievable baby soft feel and a fresh boost of vitality. My skin is clear, hydrated and fresh and has a new lease of life to it.

Much love
