Hey Ines, I was the girl who messaged you a while back with the oily, acne-prone skin with hyper-pigmentation. I was using way too many Clarins products and products with loads of mineral oils etc…

I finally got the products you recommended and I was wondering if you would be able to help me get into a routine/figure out how and when I should be using everything… I feel kind of overwhelmed and clueless when it comes to skincare in general. I remember you saying I should skip cleansing in the morning but other than that I’m not too sure what I should be doing. Also do you think I should be using a toner and/or moisturizer?

I hope I’m not being a bother…
Thank you so much in advance ♡

Omg this is the ultimate regime. I’m so happy you got all this! Here’s your weekly routine from now on:

-Every night before bed, take a pump of Rodial Glamtox Cleansing balm and massage it all over your skin. Don’t dampen your skin beforehand - apply it onto dry skin. Leave it on for 5-15 minutes, maybe brush your teeth etc while it brightens and exfoliates. Next, wet your hands with lukewarm water, and massage your face as the cleanser emulsifies into a milk. After you’ve worked off all your makeup, rinse your face with cold water.

-In the morning, rinse your face with water (any temperature is fine as long as it’s not hot). I don’t really like to cleanse in the morning - I find the oils my skin has produced overnight prevent my skin from getting too oily throughout the day. After you’ve patted your face dry, mix a pump of the cucumber serum and three or so drops of the vitamin C booster in the palm of your hand. Press your hands together, then onto your face, gently massaging it all over but being sure to work it into the driest areas of your skin (and those affected by hyperpigmentation.) To avoid further sun damage, use a sunblock all over the face.

-Up to three times a week (once or twice is fine - it’s up to you and how sensitive your skin is), you can use the Sand Your Ground mask as directed on the box. It’s best to use it after using the Rodial cleanser, but you can use it on its own. After spreading it onto your face and waiting for it to set, wet your hands and - this is very important - with light, gentle circular motions, work the scrub into your skin for a minute or so. Don’t be too firm - let the scrub do the scrubbing, not your hands. After rinsing it off, you have the option of working a small pump of the hydrating serum into your skin.
