My skincare routine is my absolute favourite way to start and end every day. A good skincare routine is one of the most important steps as you ‘only get one skin’ (a phrase my mom burned into my brain). I have been trailing four Murad products for the last four weeks and I am so impressed with the results!
I have sick for the past few months, hence the radio silence on the blog and a reduction in posts on my Instagram. During this time of illness I can confidently tell you my skin has never looked better (which is weird for me because usually when my health goes downhill so does my skin). I have been using four products from the Murad range including the NEW Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
Due to the fact I have been ill I needed a simple, but highly effective routine. I started my routine with the Essential C Cleanser, which is a vitamin C daily cleanser that neutralises the impact of environmental pollutants by removing impurities and restoring radiance. The Mandarin Orange, Basil and Grapefruit gives the cleanser its invigorating scent while the Sodium PCA binds moisture to the skin and the Allantoin rejuvenates skin for a glowing complexion.
Following this I use the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Skin and Facial Cleanser (twice weekly, NOT every day). This intense cleanser polishes away dullness and impurities for a smoother completion. It smooths the skin texture, clears pores and removes impurities leaving the skin feeling buttery soft. The cleanser uses Salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic acids to provide clarity, brightness and to improve the cell turn over. The Jojoba Beads gently polish, exfoliate and smooth the skin.
Onto the serum! The NEW Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum is AMAZING!! This clinically proven serum rapidly reduces the appearance of dark spots, age spots and hyperpigmentation in just one week (no joke). The serum uses NHP-3 technology to enhance the skins radiance. I have never used a serum that has had such an impressive effect so soon. I wish I had taken some before and after photos because it is seriously amazing! My pigmentation is significantly less (especially on my forehead) and my skin looks so much brighter.
In the evenings I chose not to apply a moisturiser so that the serum had extra time to seep into my skin and really work well! However, during the day I used the Essential C Day Moisture SPF 15. This Vitamin C moisturiser shields the skin from the damaging and ageing UV rays and improves the skins radiance and firmness. The citrus formula makes the skin look for radiant, youthful and supple while being packed with broad spectrum sun protection.
I am SO glad I found this range! These products will definitely be worked into a larger routine when I am better as I love putting stuff on my face. However, if you are a simple soul this routine is more than enough as the products are powerful and genuinely fantastic.
