My skincare routine

My skin is normal to dry, mildly sensitive, and once in a while will break out in unusual unexplainable rashes for no particular reason (this hasn’t happened in over a year and a half though). I also have quite dry lips which used to crack and bleed a lot before I started taking care of them. Apologies for the gross details.

In the last year or so I have been very aware of what ingredients go into skincare. It has been very important to me that I’m happy with what I put on my skin (the biggest absorbing organ in the body, just think of how much nicotine can be administered via a small patch), and I try to avoid potential toxic ingredients like parabens, propylene glycol and mineral oil, as well as unnecessary irritants like Sodium Laureth Sulphate.

– cleanse with Kosmea Clarifying Facial Wash
– moisturise with Trilogy Vital moisturising cream
– apply Key’s Soap Solar Rx cosmetic Sunblock SPF 30+ underneath foundation (uses nano Zinc Oxide so it is a physical, not chemical UV blocker. I could rant on this subject for hours but this will do for now).
 -Lucas Papaw ointment on lips. I can’t live without this and have about 5 tubes scattered in handbags, bedside table, car glove box, bathroom.

  5. […] Kosmea Skin Clinic Organic Rose Hip Oil is the first pure plant oil I tried, back in 2009, and this product singlehandedly started my passion for organic skin care. I remember the first time I used it- the idea of applying an oil to my face was completely alien to me, but when I saw the results I was hooked. In fact, I remember posting about Kosmea’s Rose Hip Oil when my blog was only 2 weeks old (awwww..) here. […]
