Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

The one area we all forget to take care of

The one area we all forget to take care of

If I said the word skincare what would think of? Products for your face? Body scrubs and serums? But have you ever typed into Google skincare products for Décolletage? Because I haven’t. Its the one area I don’t think about. The one area I shove suncream on a few times a year and get gone with it. Our necks and chests are becoming ever more exposed to the harsh environment, so keeping them healthy is so important.

 

What exactly is it? The Décolletage is the area from your neck to your chest. Anything that a lower neckline of a dress of top would show off.

 

Décolletage can have the same skin damage as your face (and the rest of you for that matter). Too much sun, lifestyle and natural ageing will bring about a break down in collagen and skin begins to sag. This is all natural and shouldn’t be scary, to a degree, but as mentioned, there are so many factors that can accelerate this. The damage? Fine lines and pigment damage that will only get bigger with age.

 

Ways to keep that neck looking top notch:

  1. Wear a suncream with over SPF 30. Buying the most expensive one won’t necessarily help, even cheap drug store buys will do the job.
  2. Exfoliating will get rid of dead cells, so try it once a week!
  3. Adding hydration to a dry area can have amazing results, so why not moisturise down your neck and onto your chest just as you do with your face?
  4. Cleansing the skin is vital, so find one that gives just enough oils to replenish but not dry out the skin. Oh- and always pat dry, don’t rub everything off or make the skin irritated with a towel

 

The Décolletage is such an important area, and is often the first bit of skin to show signs of ageing. Never be worried about fine lines or wrinkles, but always add that extra step into your skincare routine to make sure you’ve done all you can to ensure firmness for years to come.
