Remember when the only skin care you had was simply making sure you took your makeup off and washed your face before bed? Now it’s all Retinol, Acids and 10-Step Skincare Routines! Not gonna lie, I definitely got caught-up in all the skincare hype myself. I became obsessed with acquiring so many skincare products and wasn't really paying attention if they worked or not, largely due to the fact that I didn't even know what to look for and wasn't giving anything enough time to actually work.
I should've known I was headed down a slippery slope, but like a kid in a candy store, I lacked self-control and we all know that never ends well. Earlier this year I had the craziest breakouts concentrated on one side of my face and on my forehead. Come to find out it was because I was 'overloading' my skin. So first step was to strip my routine down to the bare minimum: Cleanse and Moisturiser. So I was using just two products (pictured above), day and night.
Took a couple months before things started to normalize and once it did I decided to seek help. I may be jumping the gun here because I literally just got my consultation done 3 weeks ago and purchased my products a week ago, so haven't exactly got any progress to report as enough time hasn't elapse. But I just couldn't wait to share that such an option was available!
Pretty sure 'Routine Consultations' aren't new, but I am sharing this for the people who have been struggling to figure out an effective skincare routine for themselves. We've got numerous articles here on the site, by some of our amazing Contributors, on routines & products. Turns out, one of them is a Routine Consultant.
Our BiL Contributor Bisi, of that.geminigirl, offers Skincare Routine Consultations and as soon as I found out I said: SIGN ME UP! My session was hassle-free, easy and straight to the point. She works with the products you have, advices on what you need to add/trash in your line-up and sends you a detailed routine of when to use what.... EASY. I'm currently into my 2nd week of the new routine she prescribed along with the products she recommended, and so far so good.
Will share my progress, as well the new products she recommended, in the coming weeks so look out for that!
