#TeenBlogSeries week 5 | Skincare Routine

It is now week 5 of the #TeenBlogSeries and we're halfway through the topics. Time has gone so quickly, I almost find it hard to keep up with the posts!
This week's topic "Skincare Routine and Skincare Must Have for Teens" comes right on time since I struggled with my skin a lot throughout July and August but finally found some help to my problem!

For my skincare routine I use the Clinique 3-step skin care system in the morning and before I go to sleep. I told a bit about it in my August Favourites and I've loved it ever since I got it. It has the liquid facial soap oily skin formula, clarifying lotion 3 and dramatically different moisturising gel. 

(If I'm wearing makeup I always remove it with some Nivea makeup wipes but I don't wear makeup everyday so I didn't include it to this everyday skincare routine.) 

Step 1
I wash my face with warm water and leave it a bit wet. Then following the introductions of the skincare system I first take a bit of the Clinique liquid facial soap oily skin formula, rub it in my hands so it foams and apply it all over my face. I like to let it be for about 5-10 seconds to make sure it affects and then wash it off. It cleanses my skin leaving it very soft and prepares it for exfoliation.

Step 2
Next for exfoliation I take the Clinique clarifying lotion 3 and sweep my face with it using a cotton pad. I have combination skin so even though it's oily it can also get dry very easily so I think it's great how effectively this deep-clenses and refines pores without drying my skin. It also smells very nice even though it's 100% fragrance free as every other Clinique product is.

Step 3
Last but not least comes a very important part of skincare which is moisturising. I take only a teeny tiny amount of the Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel and apply it to wherever I feel like I need some moisturising. This gel lasts me for so long because you really need so little amount of it even if you apply it all over your face and neck.

Skincare must have for teens
I think there really isn't a product every teen should have for skincare but I think everyone should have the right skincare routine. I first thought I would do okay by just going for the products that had great reviews for combination skin but now that I asked a professionals help my skin looks so much clearer and feels amazing!
So the only must have thing I have is a tip: ask a professionals help and don't use too many products even if you think you need them because you probably don't. I think the less products, the better.


I hope you enjoyed this week's post and it helped some of you a bit!
Do you have some products you think I should try out?

  1. I agree with you, It has taken me years to find the right skincare routine for me. But now I have found it my skin is so happy and healthy! I would recommend all of Liz Earle's skincare, it really helped my skin and prevent huge break out of spots! I have also done this weeks #teenblogseries skincare post if you fancy a read!

    1. You should ask for a sample from your local store! It's usually for two days but helps you notice if the product is good for you or not :). That's what I did at first, Clinique skincare is an expensive purchase after all.
