My Skincare Routine | #TeenBlogSeries Week 5

Teen Bloggers Anouska Millar and Beth have decided to start a project called #TeenBlogSeries. Its aim is to bring together lots of the teens/young adults in the blogging community. For the next ten consecutive weeks, over 80 bloggers will be writing every Monday at 6:30pm about many different things, all beauty, lifestyle or fashion related. You can view everyones posts by going to the hashtag on twitter "TeenBlogSeries". If you would like to supply products for the giveaway, get involved, or have any questions, please email:

I can't believe it is already week 5 of #TeenBlogSeries meaning we are already half way through this project. This weeks topic is 'Teenage Skincare Routine and Essentials'. For the past few years I have suffered from horrible skin, I would always break out and my skin would be very dull, it has only been in the last few months that my skin has begun to clear up after following this routine. I have combination skin meaning that one day I can have extremely oily skin and the next day very dry and dull skin, so this routine is suited to this skin type, however all the products I use are for all skin types.

(I have been trying to upload a picture here for over 30 minutes now so I will try and include it once the post is up!)

Every morning and evening I cleanse my skin with the Olay Essentials Conditioning Milk. This is a really effective cleanser as it removes any excess oil, dirt and makeup. I simply apply generously to the skin and leave for 30 seconds before wiping off with a cotton wool pad. I have been using this product for around 6 months now and have certainly noticed a change, if I don't use this product for a few days my skin will elfin to look dull and start to break out again.

I like to follow this up with the Olay Essentials Refreshing Toner. I apply the toner to a cotton wool pad and wipe over my face to remove any last traces of dirt and makeup, this toner is really refreshing so is perfect for those early mornings to brighten the face.

Finally, I moisturise with the Garnier Moisture Match Shine Be Gone, this moisturiser is for oily to combination skin as it provides a mattifies the skin. There are 4 other products in the Moisture Match range for all skin types. I personally think this is the most important step in my skincare routine and I was so shocked to find out most people my age don't moisturise daily! This product has definitely played a part in the improvement mom my skin and I love the product so much that I have already repurchased 3 times in the past year!
Sorry for the short post this week, I have been so busy with school and as if that wasn't enough, the app I use to write my blog post has decided to crash on me 3 times meaning this is the 4th time writing this post!
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed this post and I would love to hear your skincare routines and essential products so leave a comment below letting me know!
