It’s been ages since I last shared my organic morning skincare routine and as I update my essential daily product list every so often, mostly when I find new products I love, I thought it was about time I should do a little refresher! My combination skin type is annoyingly still the same as always, prone to dehydration in some areas and prone to spots in others! It’s not always easy to take care of my type of skin, but through rigorous testing of different product combinations, I think I have managed to find a really good balance.
So, here is my natural and organic morning routine that I have been sticking to every day for the last several months and after all that time I can confidently say that it suits my skin wonderfully.
To get rid of all the sebum that accumulates throughout the night, I start my routine with Absolution Le Nettoyant Pureté gel cleanser. I really like this product, it has a light scent which is invigorating and really pleasant to use in the morning. It cleans and purifies the skin gently without drying it out and rinses easily to leave my skin very soft with a real feeling of cleanliness.

To prep the skin for moisturising I spray my face with a mist. At the moment I use the Rose & Neroli lotion from Odacité which I have spoken about before in this article here. I really like it’s moisturizing and soothing effect.

The contour of your eye is the thinnest and most fragile area of everyone’s face so I make sure to always take great care of it. For some time now I have used the Eye and Lip Contour from Fleurance Nature and I must say I am really satisfied with it. It has a metal applicator that provides an ultra refreshing effect and I love the cold feeling when I apply it, it’s so nice. I instantly feel that my eye contour is brighter and moisturised. As for the long-term effect, I can definitely see a real change, I have less fine dehydration lines so I am absolutely delighted!

I finish my routine with a super moisturizing duo, Anti-Soif Serum and La Creme de Santé day cream from Absolution.
Before the cold winter days arrived (it’s absolutely freezing in London now), I only used La Creme de Santé day cream as it perfectly suited my skins needs. But as winter approached this cream was no longer enough. It’s always the same story every year, my skin dries out and tingles so I complete my skincare routine with the Anti-Soif Serum as it brings that extra moisture my skin needs.
I mix the 2 products together in the palm of my hand before application. You don’t need a lot of product to cover your entire face, half a push on the pump is easily enough. The texture penetrates very quickly, leaving a feeling of freshness and a mattifying effect. It moisturizes my skin all day without fail while balancing and regulating. I would have presumed that this duo would not be rich enough as the texture is quite light but surprisingly it does a very good job.
I hope you enjoyed this article and if you found it useful then definitely come back soon as next up I’ll be focussing on all my favorite products to get rid of possibly the most annoying of all the blemishes……..spots!!
