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.

Getting your skin ready for AW’19/20

We are getting closer to those cold winter nights and our skin needs to be ready for the change.

Blissed with a few hot days this summer, naturally bronzed skin that glows from within has been the aim we all wanted and trying to achieve. It’s been the talk this summer with so many products claiming to give you that glow! Now winter is fast approaching we need to consider the elements and how our skin needs that extra bit of TLC to carry us through.

If you’re not cleansing, toning and moisturizing, now is the perfect time to start!

This Trio from Monoskin is perfect for all skin types. It’s great for those that have sensitive areas and is foolproof, an easy combo that gives you everything you need for a good foundation to your skincare routine.

Treat your skin once a week to a hydrating face mask, choose one that is packed with moister as this will help to plump and rehydrate your skin. Keep them in the fridge for a cooling de-puffing effect. Perfect for tired eyes.

Serums have recently come on scene more and If I’m being honest It took me a while to look into them. I worried they were going to make my skin look oily and greasy. How wrong was I! They are amazing and I have added it into my morning & night skincare routine. My go-to at the moment is my Pixie Glow Serum. Just a few drops and my face looks and feels so hydrated, glowing and fresh.

The cold air is bad for drying and taking the moister out of your face causing it to look dull and lifeless. You may find your trusty foundation just isn’t applying the way it used to, epically around the nose and T zone. Investing In a great primer and base for your foundation will help give you that flawless skin.

Clinch pep start is my go-to in the winter, it’s a good hydrating moisturiser cream that acts as a barrier from the harsh cold but also creates a blurred effect on the skin ready for foundation. I like to use this on its own for a no-makeup day or underneath my foundation as my primer.

A face mist like a rose tonic can give your skin the perfect pick me up through the day if you have been commuting that morning by lunchtime your skin may feel dry, and tight. Spritz your face to help add moister back to your face without ruining your makeup. It will help to ease that cakey feeling.

Your lips! We have all been there, your lips have been fine and then suddenly your caught off guard without your lip balm and there sore and cracking.

I have a little lip routine that I swear by.

Invest in a moister rich intense lip balm for bedtime, apply a generous layer on and leave it like an overnight mask, to sink into your lips. I have been using Bali Balm, I wake with the softest lips ready for my makeup.

A hydrating lip liner that’s smudge and waterproof is the perfect base before you put on your liquid lip, I’m obsessed with Doucce at the moment I either use as a liner to detail the lip shape or as an all-over colour. It doesn’t budge or crack throughout the day. As an affordable top-up balm, I keep my Dr pawpaw on me 247, it’s perfect for applying on the go when needed.

 

What small changes are you going to make to get your skin ready?
