Sometime we're so stressed and barely getting any sleep, that washing our face has become a daily struggle. Our skin starts looking, dull, tired, textured and dehydrated because it hasn't been getting any love. Then suddenly, you have an event coming up or a Eid vacation and you want your skin to look it's best, this is when you need to pull out a quick skincare routine for dull, tired skin.
This is an instant refreshing wake up to your skin, combatting dull and dehydrated skin it has been dealing with for a while. If you are able to do some of these steps regularly, then great. But, if you don't have time and you have a special event you want to look perfect for, this is your way to go.
Here's a little brief on some of the products used in the video and what you might want to know about them...
A Clay Mask
Clay masks are a great way to extract any dirt lying on your skin or pores. It really cleans up the skin and helps combat results of pollution and congestion. There are so many clay masks in the market, I really like and use the Glossier Mega Greens Detoxifying Face Mask.
Acid toners are a great option for those looking to enhance the texture of their skin, diminish pigmentation and do an overall regular cleaning of dead skin cells. This Pixi Glow Tonic toner contains 5% glycolic acid, which is a great exfoliant and alternative to scrubbing your face. It's great for brightening the face as well.
Hyaluronic Acid is like giving your face a drink of water. Is a substance we have in our skin already and it is special because it really helps the skin look plump and youthful. It is an ingredient that is included in moisturizers but I'm using a serum that has 2% Hyaluronic Acid, by The Ordinary, to really get as much as of its benefits as possible. It helps with really softening the skin, smoothing it, giving it that extra kick of hydration that it needs. It also helps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rosehip Seed Oil
My 'glow' in a bottle. I love using this at night and waking up to really beautiful, supple, glowy, healthy looking skin. I also use it when my skin needs some love, after it's been disregarded because the results are instantaneous. I use The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil.

However, you must remember that every skin is different. So, make sure your skin doesn’t react negatively to anything before committing to it. You can try to ensure this, as much a possible, by checking if any ingredients have irritated your skin before, do a patch test or consult a dermatologist.
