My Face Routine - Morning and Night

Good morning, girls, 

I want to share my morning and night face care routine with you. 

Face Care Products, Vichy, Face Cream, Vichy Serum, St.Ives Apricot Scrab
Face Care Routine: Products for Day and Night
As I wake up and stretch, or have some sort of exercise on my Cross trainer or outside, I go and take care of my face.
I apply the hair band to keep hair from getting wet and also to prevent the product getting into it. Now, there are two ways of how I wash my face:
1. In the shower/sink with the St.Ives Apricot Sensitive Skin Gentle Scrab, its safe for the everyday use, but I usually use it every other day. 
2. Or I use Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1, which is a cleansing milk, toner and eye-make up remover, which doesnt need to be washed off and I can just use my cotton disks for that. 
As a step number 2, I am using my Vichy Normaderm Micellar Solution 3 in 1 for sensitive skin as well. It cleanses, removes even eye make-up and  soothes my skin. I have tried quite a few micellar waters and this one is very nice and gentle to my skin, it also doesnt dry it out. One of my least favourite Micellar waters was from L'oreal, pink one. It dried my skin out, skin became even more sensitive and was even hurting and uncomfortable unfortunately. 
Step number 3: 
I take a pump of my Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum and apply it all over my face and neck. It soakes into the skin immediately and gives a lovely comforting feeling. People who have a dry, sensitive skin know how it feels immediately after the wash. After serum is fully absorbed, i move on to step 
number 4: 
A very important step is applying your eye cream. Currently, I am using an eye cream (with silk extracts) for sensitive skin as well with Stratyxil* from Bielita. I got it from Riga, when I went there for holidays. Local cosmetics there is more natural and also cheaper, than similar would cost in UK.
I apply a pea size drop on my fingers and gently pat it around my eyes in the circular direction.
Step number 5:
Is for applying the face cream. Its either the day cream in the morning or a night cream to regenerate your skin at night. 
For the morning I am currently using Organic Green Tea Morning cream for the face, and for the evening I am using a very nice, comforting cream from Fito, with Patchouli and Karite Oil**, as well as the sunflower oil. It feels like mousse and a cushion for my face. It absorbs almost immediately, which is important when I am crashing straight into my crispy bed.

My cosmetologist told me for a person with a skin like mine, i.e. sensitive, its important to take a proper care of it, which includes, washing it in the evening and morning and applying creams twice a day. The very important step is to go over with a non-alcoholic toner after the wash, which will even out the PH level of the skin and prevent it from being dry and have that tight feeling. And only then you can go and apply your serum and cream. 

*Stratixyl Protein: Moisturizing formulations for dry, flaky skin; after-peeling, after-dermabrasion formulations to prolong appearance of good looking skin; formulations for sensitive skin; after-shave, after-depilation formulations to help restore stratum corneum Comments: Stratixyl is a biofunctional ingredient recommended for formulations targeting reinforcement of the skin barrier and moisturization, in particular those for people having dry, flaky skin.
**Karite oil, also known as a shea oil, is an oil extracted from the fruit of the karite tree. This oil is used as a skin moisturizer in many cosmetic products like lotion, soap, lip balm, and skin cream. Karite butter is rich in vitamins A and E, and it has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.
