I have learnt that it is imperative that those of us with oily or acne-prone skin use a toner. It helps to better unclog pores by removing oil, dirt and make up. By removing build up from your pores you also create the appearance of them shrinking. Bonus! Toners can help close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing, reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It can even protect and remove chlorine and minerals present in tap water. Source.Continue reading “My Skin Care Routine | Toners”

Skin Care for 30 somethings
After sharing on Insta the other day how grateful I am for my skin therapist (Adele) who has taken my skin on a journey of healing and improvement, I was inundated with messages asking me to please share what I am using, and what I used when I had acne breakout and pigmentation explosions in my pregnancies.
This post will cover my skin routine, linked to multiple posts with various products I love in those categories. I hope this post acts as a guide for you if you are a thirty-something looking to start taking care of your skin
While my skin has come such a long way, and I am thrilled with the texture and health of it, I still struggle with uneven skin tone, hormonal breakouts, and congestion. I am in my mid-thirties and so anti-aging products are high on my priority list as well, and so skin care is a place I invest a substantial amount of my salary into 😉 I certainly didn’t buy all these products in one go, so please don’t read this post and blow all your savings tonight! Building a skincare regime over time and in a way that best suits your budget is the best way to go, especially because you can slowly see, as you introduce new products into your routine, what products you do and don’t like, and understand what product is having what effect on your skin. If you go buck wild and purchase 8 new products overnight it will be impossible to know what you like or what product is responsible for potentially giving you a reaction. Easy does it. With skin care it’s always best to keep in mind that slow & steady wins the race and try avoid “quick fixes”!Continue reading “My Skin Care Routine || Overview”
It has been a good long while since my last “Flavour of the month” post!
I am so sorry about that! I am super excited to share this lot with you though! Hope you enjoy, let me know if you try any of them and what you think…
Starting with the most important: Skin care. Because it doesn’t matter what you put on your face to pretty it up, if the base coat (your skin) is not clear and glowing, well then nothing will look all that good, will it?!
I have really been struggling with bad skin lately, and it seriously got me down last month. I just didn’t know what to do anymore, my self confidence took a huge knock, and nothing I was doing was helping. I had heard a lot about the new Eucerin range and I figured I should give it a try.
I have been so pleasantly surprised by this range, I honestly feel so happy that I found it.
