I have a combination skin type. Prone to blemishes but also dehydrated and dry at times.
I cleanse, tone and moisturise using Tropic Skincare Products: View my shop
•Smoothing Cleanser complexion purifier + Bamboo Face Cloth:
I can’t recommend this product enough! I love it so much 💚 It removes my make-up completely, using the bamboo cloth. It’s quick and easy to use, suits all skin types and feels so luxurious. It’s a must for your skin regime! Use day and night. BAN THOSE FACE WIPES!
*A little experiment* use as many wipes as you usually would at the end of a day…now grab a white face cloth, immerse in warm water and wipe over your face. Look at how much make-up is left on the cloth! That product would have been left clogging your pores overnight. Your skin repairs whilst you sleep so it’s important to remove all impurities.
The cleanser is as easy as using wipes but feels so much cleaner and leaves you with beautiful glowing skin.
I follow this cleansing routine with;
•Vitamin toner pore refining mist (day & night)
•Skin feast nourishing cream concentrate (moisturiser used day & night) Mixed in with Super Greens nutrient boost oil (at night)
•Eye work rejuvenating serum (day)
•Eye dream age defying overnight butterbalm (night)
•Face smooth brightening polish (an exfoliator used once or twice a week after cleansing)
•To tackle De-hydration/Dryness:
-At night I apply the Tropic Rainforest Dew hydration serum before my moisturiser.
-Once a week I will use the Tropic Deep Hydration smooth cooling mask followed by;
-Tropic Fruit peel resurfacing serum (at night once a week)
•To tackle Blemishes/Acne:
-Tropic Pure lagoon blemish prevention serum used before my moisturiser (at night)
-Once a week I will use Tropic Clear Skin blemish-fighting mask.
-When I have hormonal break outs I use the Clear Skin mask on individual blemishes.
-Once a week I use the Tropic Face Lift brightening tightening mask. You can also add the Tropic Elixir Age Defying Omega Oil your moisturiser. You can never start too young! We lose collagen from the age of 25.
-Tropic Tamanu Healing Balm all-in-one skin saviour.
Also good for irritated, inflamed or dry skin. Stretch marks, scars, cuts and scrapes, insect bites
-Dr Lipp Original nipple balm. They now have a few new shades.
-The Body Shop Lipscuff to remove dead skin cells.

•Self tan for the body:

-Overnight: Tropic Sun Drench overnight tanning mousse + Tanning Mitt
-Last minute tanning (fast results): St Tropez Express bronzing mousse.
•Self tan for the face:

-Face: Sun Day Facial UV SPF 50
-Face: Tropic Beauty booster sheer foundation (SPF35)
•For excess perspiration: Pespirex strong (at night, every 5 days) Amazing results!
