Let’s talk about facial yoga and how it changed my face forever! Honestly, I’m SO grateful to have started to learn about facial yoga because it has made all the difference to my face – my skin is more lifted, toned and fine lines have started to disappear. Pairing facial yoga with the My Perfect Cosmetics products has genuinely been the best thing for my skin! Therefore, this post is dedicated to the perfect skincare routine for lacklustre skin.
How I got started with facial yoga is that I was introduced to Ross Duttson through My Perfect Cosmetics and we hosted an IG Live together that was really lovely because it taught me all the basics to start tackling my nasolabial folds. As we age, we see a decrease in collagen and elastin so this leads to a loss of volume in the face. This can ultimately make us look more tired than we really are and it will show in the form of skin that just looks lacklustre. Hence, I knew I needed to find the perfect skincare routine for lacklustre skin, as this was the very issue I faced.
If you want to see the full routine you can watch Ross’s IG Live here:
I do these very moves about 10-15 minutes most nights of the week (so say 6 nights out of 7) and I just do them while watching Netflix so it’s a really easy thing for me to slot into my schedule. What I’ve discovered is that since doing these exercises my nasolabial lines have started to not look so ‘droopy’ and also my overall skin tone has improved due to increased circulation from the facial massages that I’m doing every evening. My lacklustre skin is improving!
Pair this facial yoga routine with my skincare routine (using the My Perfect Cosmetics products) and we have ourselves the perfect skincare routine for lacklustre skin. Some of the My Perfect Cosmetics products that I’ve been loving lately (especially during my recent travels around the UK) that I want to talk about in particular are the My Perfect Wash, My Perfect Mask, My Perfect Night and also the My Perfect Eyes.
I love the My Perfect Wash (I’m literally down to my last squeeze!) in my skincare routine while travelling because it’s a time saver. The reason it’s a time saver is that you can remove make-up, dirt and oil from your face with just one single cleanse – it’s brilliant! I love that it does all this but at the same time is really gentle for the skin. It’s packed with amino acids that help to rejuvenate the skin’s texture and also hydrates at the same time. And just a tiny pea-sized amount will work for the entire face so the tube lasts ages and ages.
The next product I’m finding an absolute dream in my perfect skincare routine for lacklustre skin is the My Perfect Mask. I absolutely love a sheet mask when travelling due to the fact my skin can dry out from even the slightest change in water quality. The My Perfect Mask is like a long, cool drink for the skin and no wonder because it contains hyaluronic acid, bee propolis and geranium flower oil. My skin feels so hydrated after using this – dewy, soft and glowing. And if there’s anything that lacklustre skin needs more of it’s a glow.
The My Perfect Night has been a bit of a staple in my routine as of late. I take it with me everywhere and what I like about it is that it is hydrating without being overly greasy. You know the kind of night creams that leave a big oil patch on your pillow? This isn’t going to do that! But what it will do is hydrate and plump your skin overnight. Due to the formulation, it’s able to reach the deeper layers of the skin. It’s also full of ceramides (which are probably one of my favourite skincare ingredients ever) which basically help prevent moisture loss and damage from environmental stressors. Something we can all use more of right?
This night cream also works on firming the skin which is what I’m really trying to focus on in my skincare routine – especially combined with the facial yoga techniques.
Last but not least let’s talk about the eyes! The eyes are the area that starts to give away your age the most and it’s where the skin is the most delicate so fine lines can start to occur there first. Of course, I believe that certain creams do take some time and patience for you to start seeing results but with My Perfect Eyes it’s all about instant gratification! The formula (which you simply sweep under the eyes) instantly erases fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles in 1 minute! Yes – one single minute.
The effect can last up to 10 hours so it’s an amazing product for either everyday use or to wear for special events. The only tip is that you can only use it with oil-free make-up as oil-based make-up will break down the thin veil that is left on the skin from the product (this is the veil that masks fine lines and dark circles). I can’t rave about this product enough and it’s SO nice to have a product that will work instantly.
So that’s my perfect skincare routine for lacklustre skin in a nutshell and one that’s changed my skin for the better over the last few weeks. I cannot tell you what a difference it’s made and I’m genuinely feeling so much more confident and better about my skin these days.
