Growing up, I struggled with really problematic acne problems. So much that they would actually scar my skin as I would pick on them all the time. Had I known back then that it was not good to do, I would obviously looked after my skin much better!
Needless to say with all the amazing treatments and technology, fixing problematic skin is now possible.
Over the last few months I have been working hand in hand with the brand Six Skincare who have been treating my face to peels and micro needling which I will go more in depth of how it works in my next blog post.
Today I will be speaking about which products I use on a daily basis and the benefits of each.
The overall process thus far has blown my mind away, I saw results after only two months.
With this being said I have to have the best skincare products in order to look the part.
In this blog post, I’ve decided to show you some of my favourite products in the Six Skincare range, from face wash, O2 serum, moisturizer, sun protection and face masks. All of this seems like a lot of work but I am here to guide you in the right direction. Are you ready?! *yasss* let’s get into it!
Glycolic Acid 8 % Foaming Face Wash
What I love the most about the face wash is that it doesn’t create too much foam like any other face wash.
I wash my face every day and night. The glycolic acid foaming face wash is a beautiful active ingredient and works like an alpha hydroxy acid and glycolic acid and treats things like pigmentation, ageing and penetrates on a dermal layer of the skin and is the smallest molecule of the alpha hydroxy family which means it penetrates deep into the skin.
Purifying and Mattifying Booster Elixir Serum
The formula is designed to control oil levels giving that matte and shine-free look and reduces pore size.
The serum contains the active from lentil seeds that reduces sebum secretion and significantly stimulates collagen production. This beautiful product also helps with clearing of spots.
Men’s Moisturising Cream
If you have been following my blog for quite some time, you probably know that I have very oily skin which means the moisturiser that I use should not be too oily or leave my face looking oily.
The moisturiser is a very light weight cream that absorbs into my skin very smoothly. The moisturising cream is a two in one soothing moisturizer with after shave skin softening and anti-shine properties, with apple extract that acts as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, retains skin moisture, elasticity and protects the skin from both environmental and free radical damage.
Broad Spectrum Sun Protection
This is one of my favourite sun protection creams which I use on a daily basis on my face and neck.
This product is so amazing because it is a UVA & UVB protection, it does not create any stickiness or oiliness to my skin. The cream has absolutely no zinc in it which is super beneficial. The cream is also a beautiful make up primer and has an amazing ingredient called shea butter which is a very hydrating and nourishing quality about it. It contains beeswax as an anti-inflammatory and tocopherol as a powerful anti-ageing active.
Moisture Boost Mask
What I love the most about this product is that it smells amazing and every single ingredient is amazing. The mask is very active and nourishing on the skin and leaves you with a very soft feeling after you put it on. It also has biocomplex in and is absolutely amazing for regenerating the skin, it is an anti-ageing go to ingredient. What is nice about this product is that it doesn’t only give you moisture but through that moisturization of the skin you are also going to treat anti-ageing as well.
I recommend to using this booster masks twice a week that will leave your skin plump and smooth.
A little tip on the mask is that you can sleep with the mask on.
The O2 Serum is an essential aftercare product for all aesthetic procedures and it improves the regeneration for the skin on a wider scale. This serum stimulates cell renewal and restores skin barrier function. In addition it protects against pollution and climate variations and is also excellent for reducing pore size and giving your skin immediate radiance. The serum increases the rate of surface cell renewal for a younger looking skin. *aims to look mid-twenties forever*
Taking Skincare to the Next Level…
I’m a firm believer in maintenance over a quick fix because life is a journey and you have to keep consistently working on it. Therefore, you have to work on preventing rather than fixing something when it’s too late. Am I right?!
I would highly recommend these amazing products to anyone suffering from skin problems. I would also like to thank SIX Skincare and their team for guiding me through my skincare journey.
See ya until next time
