Breaking out with new skincare routine?

Are you breaking out with your new skincare? Have you noticed more pimples and irritation? Is it time to ditch the products or switch it up? I don't know what to do help? Ok firstly let's make this simple as I don't want to confuse or make it over complicated. There are two facts that will happen to your skin. Purging or breakouts. Purging is something that is happening to your skin which you will notice pimples, little spots and 'breakouts' we would call it after a product is being used in skin and its working to lift all the dead cells and old clogged dirt etc. That's a simple way of explaining it as I don't want to get too technical. If you're breaking out in place you usually get a pimple or spots then that's not a bad thing it means your new routine is working and you need to allow your skin to get used to the products and allow your skin to replace its old skin. Breakouts in terms of new ones in new places. Irritation and redn

SPF recommendation...

SPF So I have looked into some affordable but good drug store branded spf which you can use as your daily moisturise. These ones are 30 spf which is the recommended amount for daily use. So now you know you don't just use spf during summer but during winter and cold weather too. Our skin needs that protection. I have selected a few that have 4-5 star rating plus good reviews. One thing about spf I find that they always leave that greasy or white strike finish. I personally don't mind that however I know some of your ladies don't want that so best to go in store and sample them. Hope this helps. Keep an eye out for offers. Simple Kind To Skin+ Protecting Moisture Cream SPF 30 50ml Retails: £6.99 Our Protecting Moisture Cream SPF30 is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients with SPF protection to give dehydrated, tired and dull skin a boost of hydration while protecting it from UVA & UVB rays. The light texture absorbs quickly into your

Face Wash and Cleanser??

Is face wash and cleanser the same? It's confusing sometimes... I get a-lot of direct messages asking the same questions or very similar questions confused weather face wash and cleansers do the same thing? Is cleansers and toners the same? The simplest way of answering is YES (my thoughts) both face wash and cleanser do the exact same thing but have a different formula or texture depending on it’s ingredients and what’s suitable for your skin type. In any skincare routine, you must wash your skin or clean your skin as the first step. Now face wash you already know, it says it on the bottle you wash your face. A cleanser sounds more luxurious, more posh but this actually the same thing. Cleansers come in many other forms which is why everyone gets mixed up. You can get them in oil's, balms, gels and many more. Some cleansers you can just apply directly to your face and massage in without using any water (for example an oil or balm formula). Most cleansers you should use
Derma V10 Cream, Lotion and Body Butter Ok by now you guys should know am obsessed with this range. Love all their products and they a super affordable for anyone to purchase.  I have been using these daily moisturising body lotion and hand cream for a while now and I really enjoy how fast they glide on and they do help with moisture. The hand cream is my must have in my hand bag now. Its a good size and works well with my dry skin. Does not irritate the skin and doesn't have a strong perfumery scent like some hand creams do. Being pregnant I find it so hard to apply some lotions and creams all over body as you really need it to sink in to the skin. Basically takes ages to apply and you have to rub for so long to get rid of the white lotion colour. This lotion works wonders. Honestly am not just saying it but it works so fast and spreads so quickly. It really half's the time of moisturising my whole body. Now that is something I would recommend for ladies who ar

Is your Skincare working?

Is your Skincare working? Ok, my ladies, we have completed a week and have been using our basic method to start and maintain our skincare routine. Morning routine wash/cleanse followed by a toner and moisturise. Evening routine the same steps as the morning but instead of cream I am using oil at night plus lip scrub and balm to leave the lips feeling smooth. With the daily routine, a weekly routine of masking 3 times is added. This helps to deep clean and exfoliate skin in better ways than just a daily wash. As well as daily morning and evening routine a weekly routine is a must. Ok so well done to everyone involved and has completed the week. Let's keep this going and we will see more results. Now I can see a difference with my skin after a week. Can you? If not of or you feel it isn't working. Be patient your skin is slowly getting used to this new routine. You're getting used to this new routine. It's all a big change. When you haven't been looking aft

Winter Skin!

Weather Change- Its getting Colder  Perfect time to switch up your skin care routine. There are two seasons which your Skin needs monitiouring and switching up one or two products. Summer and Winter. Summer time our Skin is more moist due to warmer climates and needs Sun protecting ingredients. As soon as Autumn finishes and Winter hits your Skin, its dryer, chapped, irritated due to temertures dropping and not forgetting indoor heating which is super drying and harsh on our delicate Skin. It is important to rearrange and change a few products or add on additional skin goodies at this time. How to identify what changes to make. You should know your skin type or any issues you face during the colder months. So i have dry skin and colder times i switch a morning moisturiser to serums or oils. Thats only if i find my skin really needs it but i also increase on moisturizing through out the day. Also my lips get it the worse. They are always cracked and skin peels off. Now this i

Toners?? Do we need it

Is Toner really needed? I use to always think 'O it’s just another product added to make money' Am being truly honest and thats what I thought. But once I researched and started using it in my own skin care routine, I really like it and would not miss a toner out. There are so many benefits when using a toner after washing your face also after you have removered your make up. Fast acting and absorbing into skin Deep cleans your skin Leaves your skin feeling very refreshed Removes last trace of make up and dirt if missed when cleansing  Addes a layer of protection Added layer of hydration with hydrated ingredients, eg Hyaluronic acid  Helps reduce pore size, blemishes, treatments to skin when using active ingredients  Restores the ph balance of your skin Also reduces in grow hair. When do you use a Toner? Morning and evening after you have washed or cleansed your skin. Once washed, keep your skin damp and then you go in with a toner. Best way of using a toner is
