Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors

The ultimate end-of-summer skincare routine

As we say goodbye to the sun-kissed glow that – let’s be honest – makes summer skin oh, so easy to maintain, here are five things to change as the seasons do the same. Transitioning into Autumn isn’t always the easiest thing for our skin, but we know how to do it right…

  1. Cleansers

If you’re a fan of foaming cleansers and/or makeup wipes, you might find that these are slightly too harsh as the temperature creeps down and your skin gets drier and more sensitive. Try either a milk, cream or balm and your skin will feel infinitely more nourished. You’ll notice the change immediately.

  1. Toners

Even though you might feel your skin getting a little dry and tight, keep up with the toners. No matter the season, acids are instrumental in prepping your skin for pretty much anything that follows them.

  1. Oils

If you don’t use one already, now’s the time. If you do, try adding a couple of drops to your moisturiser to amp up the hydration your skin is getting without feeling greasy.

  1. Timing

The one singular advantage to earlier, darker nights is that you can do the whole ‘bra off makeup off hair up’ routine earlier. Try doing it as soon as you get home from work/school/uni. The skin has done most of its repairing work by 11pm, so doing your skincare routine at 10pm isn’t giving your skin the best fighting chance. Try doing it as soon as you get in, for a week, and see if you notice a difference.

  1. Spritzes, et al.

In whatever form you choose to get your last step for hydration – spritz, essence, etc. – there isn’t a more important time of year to use them right now. This isn’t the time for a can of Evian. You’ll be dehydrated already, with the weather change, and this will just exacerbate that. Use a spritz or essence that contains minerals and oils that will be beneficial for your skin.
