Figuring out exactly what your skin needs can be hard, whether your skin is oily, sensitive or prone to breakouts, everyone’s skin needs a unique regime to keep it in optimum condition. For me one of my favourite things to do is use a face mask after cleansing my skin, they’re so beneficial, delivering the nutrients my skin needs. Knowing which type of face mask is right for your skin type is another point to consider, the wrong one can lead to dry, irritated skin.

Despite what people may think a facial mist isn’t just for the hotter months of the year, they’re a big part of my skincare routine, from setting make-up, to toning, to just simply refreshing my skin on-the-go.

If you find that your skin isn’t getting the hydration it needs, then you should consider incorporating a mist into your daily regime. Here are 3 of my favourites for you to consider…View Post
Establishing a solid daily routine is the key to maintaining a healthy complexion. Whilst many of us take our make up off at night and pop on a moisturiser before bed, we also don’t invest enough time in our skin before we head out for the day. Everyone’s skin is different so it’s important to find a routine that works for you. If you read my Sensitive Skincare Saviours post in the Summer you’ll know that i’ve experienced many highs and lows trying to find products that don’t irritate my skin.

I’m forever banging on about the benefits of wearing an SPF. Since i’ve worked for a beauty brand i’ve learnt so much about how the sun affects the skin, even when it’s not sunny. It’s apparent that many people feel that they don’t need to wear a suncream because it’s dark and dismal in England most of the time – wrong! Wearing an SPF on a daily basis will help to prevent facial brown spots and skin pigmentation whatever the weather. It’ll also reduce the appearance of ‘spider’ veins, blotchiness and will slow down premature ageing – yes, wrinkles! So, here are some of my favourite SPF moisturisers that can be worn everyday, all day which are also ideal for sensitive skin.
From working in the beauty industry i’ve learnt so much about how sleep effects the skin. As we age, even one night of insufficient sleep shows on the skin. For me this comes in many forms from, redness, dark circles and dull skin. During the deepest stage of sleep, the tissue in your skin repairs. Without enough deep sleep, this repair process slows down resulting in premature ageing. The term “beauty sleep” is certainly more than a figure of speech!View Post
