We all go through phases where our skin just isn't acting right - whether it's because we're stressed, it's 'that time'  or we've tried a product that just doesn't agree with us. When this happens there's a few products I find myself reaching for to clear up my complexion. Let's call this the Rescue Me Routine...

First up I'll do a good cleanse to get all that grime up from my pores and let my skin breathe. I recently introduced the REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser into my routine and boy does this baby work. I remove the main bulk of my makeup with a bit of Bioderma before warming the Clay cream between my fingers and start to massage this into my skin, focusing on any blemishy areas. I'll try and do this for around 3/4 mins and then leave it for my skin to soak up any of it's goodness. After a couple of minutes there's barely any product left on my skin so I'll run a flannel under some hot water and start to buff away.

Whilst the REN product doesn't leave my skin feeling dry, I still want to inject a bit of moisture into my skin. Lush Ultrabland a balm that is perfect for blemishes yet leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. After another massage I'll get a hot cloth and lay it over my skin for a minute to open up my pores. I'll rinse the cloth until it's as hot as I can bare then slowly wipe away any remaining balm.

I love to use a toner and I think they're really overlooked. When I'm feeling a bit spotty, the Origins Zero Oil toner is a perfect treatment - it contains Salycilic acid which is perfect for reducing blemishes. This leaves my skin feeling completely clean, refreshed and soothed. Sometimes too much hydration makes my skin feel worse, so I like to keep it light. The Origins GinZing is perfect as it's gel texture really packs a punch. It's nicely hydrating yet is so light you can barely feel it. Perfect!

What are your perfect 'rescue me!' products?

  2. Ultrabland is one of my all time favourite cleansers. I wasn't expecting to like it as I have quite oily skin but it's done wonders.
