Skin & Hair Routine

Growing up, I’ve always been obsessed with skincare products; dreaming to have a clear, perfect skin. But a girl can only dream, can’t she? For girls who enjoy putting makeup as much as I do, it’s important to invest just as much into skincare products! Here’s a list of some of the products that I’ve been using for a while and how they’ve helped benefit my skin:

  1. Tea Tree Facial Wash: I know I’ve written a whole blogpost before about my obsession over this product, but there’s a reason! Finding the right facial wash can take years of disappointment after wasting your time and money & seeing NO results. Luckily, I found mine and I highly recommend it! One bottle can last up to 2 months. For more details, click here.

  2. L’Oreal Pure-Clay Mask: I had to try this product and see if it’s worth the buzz. I think it’s a really good product for people who don’t have severe problems like acne or discoloration but still try to take care of their skin. I tried the “Detox & Brighten” mask and I’ve seen results after the first two times. My face felt smooth, healthy, and glowed. Apply it 1-3 times a week and let it dry on your face for 15 minutes before washing it off._171030172914_LOREAL 2_full
  3. Clinique Moisture Surge: I recently bought this product because my face moisturizer has finished and I can only buy it from Dubai so I needed a good replacement. Although it’s not THE best out there, it still serves its purpose (especially in this cold & dry weather). It can also be used as a great base before applying your makeup. It’s water based so it won’t leave your skin looking oily or shiny. Apply it 2-3 times a day.

Give your hair just as much attention!

  1. Caviar Anti-Aging Moisturizer: I use this product twice a week while I’m in the shower. If you think your hair is feeling dry or your split ends are going crazy on you like I felt, this product is a must. You can buy it from Sephora for around $44 (170 AED) and you won’t regret it. Apply it on wet damp hair for 3 minutes then rinse it off. The results are amazing!

  2. FrizzEase: I’ve never been a fan of hair serum but I gave this product a try 8 months ago and I’m attached. There are many options you could choose from (whatever suits your hair type) but I chose the originalIt has 6 effects: eliminates frizz, hydrates, protects against humidity and heat, tames, and smoothes! Distribute it evenly on wet hair after showering but avoid applying it directly on your roots!

  3. Cystiphane by Biorga: This is an anti-hair loss lotion that I’ve been using for over a month now and I’ve seen good results. Because I dye my hair a lot, I’ve experienced hair loss but luckily this product has been helping. It’s also water based so it won’t make your hair oily. Apply 7 squirts a day to the dry scalp, preferably in the evening, for 6 weeks. Do not rinse off.

An Endless Dilemma

Every girl’s dilemma is to find the right facial cleanser, the one that will create miracles in a couple of weeks by keeping your skin soothed and CLEAN. Because I have an oily T-Zone and a dry/normal combination, I’ve used some facial cleansers in the past that dried out my face and irritated it. The Tea Tree Oil by The Body Shop does wonders!!!! The tea tree oil is extracted from the foothills of Mount Kenya and is mostly used to treat acne and bacteria. I’ve been using it for two years now and I truly recommend it to every woman and MAN who can’t find the right product and are getting these small pimples, mostly because of hygiene or lack of attention. For the people who don’t usually put a lot of effort in their skincare routine, this one product would be enough (suitable for all skin types).

It can also be used to remove layers and layers of makeup . At some point, you’ll just stop buying any makeup removal products. Just use it to wash your face twice a day (morning and night) and you’re good to go!

Another Tea Tree product that I’ve been using is the Skin Clearing NIGHT MASK. Apply a thin layer before you go to bed at night and you’d notice these results in the following morning:

  1. Detoxified/ glowing skin
  2. Soothed and healthy-looking skin
  3. Purified and refreshed (by removing any excess oils on your face)
  4. Improved appearance of pores
