I was so intrigued when I received this package from Deborah Mitchell, Deborah is the inventor of the Bee Venom Mask and her company “Heaven” have created products containing their patented Abeetoxin and PPM formulas. P.s – no bees are harmed in the making of Heaven products!
SPF is short for Sun Protection Factor and is found in many cosmetic products. Whether the sun is out or not, UV rays still hit our skin and can cause short/ long-term damage. In all honesty I didn’t realise how influential SPF is, especially its importance from a young age, in order to protect our skin and reduce the damage it receives. I did some deep research into SPF and UV damage and summarised it into this blog post for you all.
I’m back! After a long break due to uni exams I needed to get back to blogging. I was so excited to receive the Environ AVST1 moisturiser and the Environ AVST Hydrating Exfoliant Masque, at the recent Essential Health launch. I can’t believe I haven’t already been introduced to this amazing skincare line! You can’t buy Environ products online, however stockists like Essential Health do stock them.
Just thought I’d share my morning skincare routine with you all. After 19 years of battling with oily skin and then dry skin and then oily skin again! I think my body finally decide to give me combination skin. This basically means I have a mix between an oily T-zone but dry skin around my cheek area… Males finding it hard to apply “girly” cosmetics with flower fragrances… this is for you!
I start off my morning with washing my face with just lukewarm water, just to dampen my face. I then use the Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. To use this you just simply pump a small amount into your hand, form a lather and then massage across your face. You can feel it working itself into your pores and genuinely “cleansing” your skin. Then all you have to do is wash it off and pat-dry with a clean towel.
Then comes the key moisturiser. After sampling many moisturisers I found the best one for combination skin is the Loreal Men Expert Pure & Matte Moisturising Gel. It truly does live up to its name by leaving an anti-shine matte effect to the skin. A little really goes a long way with this moisturiser and although it being slightly expensive it is definitely worth investing in. I feel my skin does become slightly greasy after 10-12 hours of wearing this moisturiser but combining this with the cleanser, my skin stays matte for much longer.
For long term care of your skin I recommend drinking lots of natural lemon water as it cleanses and purifies your skin. Just simply squeeze a slice or two into a glass of water or you can just make a full jug of water using a couple of lemons and limes, and keep it cool in the fridge.
I hope this works a treat for you all, don’t hesitate to contact me for any tips and tricks!
