two of my favourite skin products for extra moisturised skin :)

Hey Blog Readers!

One thing I always get asked about is...

As I have gotten older one of the most important things to me (in terms of my skin care routine) is keeping my face moisturised!

Moisturising your skin is so important especially as we age! You wouldn't go a day without drinking water would you? (coffee and beer also contains water ;) well in that case you shouldn't go a day without hydrating your skin! It's not only important for today but also for the future!
Today:
In the short term using a moisturiser keeps your skin looking healthy and delivers immediate perking and plumping benefits. Moisturisers lock in water and prevent water loss in everyday conditions such as heat or wind. Not to mention your skin looks and feels so much smoother, softer and fresher looking when you moisturise regularly!

Tomorrow:
Using moisturiser is so important for your skin in the long run as proper hydration enables your skin to function at peak performance! skin cells in peak condition can rapidly repair themselves and turnover fresh cells quickly which means huge anti-ageing benefits! Those who use a moisturiser develop wrinkles at a fraction of the rate of those with dry skin! who doesn't want to look younger for longer?

It feels awesome:
As well as the tremendous benefits using a good moisturiser has on your skin it also feels amazing and instantly refreshing!

What I use
I am currently using two products to moisturise my skin and I am obsessed with them. After I cleanse my skin I use a serum and then I follow up with my moisturiser.

The Serum I am using!
I am using 'Truffle Therapy Serum' - this stuff is amazing! I love it! You can feel it immediately plumping your skin! it is anti-ageing magic used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles! I love the way it glides on and makes my skin feel so silky and soft! It is from a natural skincare line which is an extra perk as it doesn't contain any parabens etc..This product feels luxurious and beautiful - it is a treat for your skin :) you deserve it!

My Moisturiser! 
After I use the Truffle Therapy Serum I follow up with the 'Super Anti-Ageing Matrixyl Moisturiser'! (doesn't the name sound like magic in a bottle :) I love this product because unlike some other moisturisers that I have used in the past it doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all! This moisturiser was designed not only to address the visible signs of ageing but also to help the skin cells to renew for a long term anti-ageing effect while also provide a ton of antioxidants to the skin. An added bonus is that it contains natural ingredients (as does the Truffle Therapy serum) and was never tested on animals! (YAY)

My routine: I use both of these products after cleansing my face when I wake up in the morning and just before I go to bed at night! I use a light circle motion to apply each product. I love how this sits under makeup as it makes for a great primer and gives a illuminous subtle glow to the skin!

You can pick up both products on Amazon! Click here for the Truffle Therapy Serum and here for the Super Anti-Ageing Matrixyl Moisturiser! 

Of course I highly recommend both products because if I didn't they wouldn't appear here on my blog! :) but let me know if you try them out because I would love to hear if you love these products just as much as I do!


Lots of Love,
