4 Need To Know Skincare Ingredients

Let’s be honest, the skincare industry is an absolute minefield. Beauty jargon is baffling and with an incredibly oversaturated market it can be difficult to understand what products are right for your skin type. When friends come to me for tips they want to understand what ingredients are actually necessary for their skincare regimes. There’s so much ‘noise’ about what you should be doing. There’s always a new breakthrough ingredient, but does it work and what is it right for you?

I’ve been a skincare enthusiast for as long as I can remember and after three years of working for one of the UK’s leading skincare brands I’ve learned so much about the skin. With a focus on efficacy, I’ve highlighted four key ingredients that can be found in skincare products. Each one is incorporated at some point in my personal routine and I can safely say that they are truly effective.

Why I Had To Break Up With My Friend

Over the years I’ve made many friendships, I guess I’ve collected my friends along the way. From school, university, traveling and work, I’ve met some incredible people who I’ve shared amazing experiences with. I used to be the kind of person who felt that I had to be friends with everyone, but after university I had a huge clear out; I realised many of the people I associated with were just acquaintances, I’d only see them on nights out and they wouldn’t be somebody I’d confide in –  and, that’s ok. We grow, we change and move on with our lives.

This post, as you might have figured out is about how I’ve broken up with a friend. It wasn’t nasty, we’re amicable, but it had to be done. It was the best thing to do, for both of us. So, this post is all about how I realised I needed to end our friendship and how I ultimately broke up with her.
