Skincare Advice I Wish I Knew When I Was Younger

When I first started getting into beauty products, your skincare routine probably included facial wipes, a face wash and moisturiser. Nowadays there's an army of facial mists, serums are now an essential and when did everyone start using sheet masks?!

Even though my skin can be very temperamental (hello hormonal breakout right now!) I have started to take better care of it. Saying that, I really wish I had this skincare advice when I was younger:

- Exfoliating is everything. 
I was always under the impression exfoliating is super damaging for my skin and rarely used a face or body scrub, maybe once every few weeks? Now I use a face scrub twice a week and give my body an overall buff once a week and can really tell the difference. My skin is now a lot brighter and applying the rest of my skincare is so much easier and my body is now so smooth, it's hard to not stroke! haha

- Apply SPF everyday.
Being the English Rose complexion I am, my skin burns very easily and it's quite bad. My shoulders are the worst for burning quickly! Now I apply a facial 50 SPF every day after my moisturiser, because even if the sun isn't out, your skin can still be damaged by the rays breaking through the clouds.

- Getting into a good routine.
Everyone harps on about the importance of removing your makeup properly before going to bed, but when I was younger? Not so much! Starting with a good cleanse to remove makeup, then another to really clean your face from anything that's gotten deeper, next a toner and finally a moisturiser which is tailored to your skin is the ideal started routine. (I'm still trying to work out mine, as mentioned in my Beauty Things I'm Really Bad At post!)

- Eye cream is a must.
I'm still on the hunt for my perfect all-in-one eye cream, so if you have any recommendations please do let me know! But I have used a few in the past and could really tell the difference in my overall look. If you pick a good eye cream, then it means less to cover up with makeup!

- Not everything will work for your skin.
I remember trying out face masks that really did not suit my skin, then breaking out a few days later and all because I didn't know what really suited my skin type. It's still a case of trial and error for me, but now I have a bunch of blogs and honest online reviews which really help when choosing my next skincare product.

What skincare advice would you give to your younger self?
