IS YOUR DAILY SKINCARE ROUTINE GIVING YOU WRINKLES?

Originally posted on be beautiful.:
It’s sort of like an unwritten rule – you ALWAYS need to wash your face before bed. You’ve been hearing beauty gurus and skin experts preach this for years – it’s nothing new. Makeup, dirt, and oil that has accumulated on your face throughout the day is seriously clogging your pores, which is why you need to wash it off. But, could this everyday beauty routine be the cause of your wrinkles? Washing your face with a scrub too aggressively every morning and night could potentially lead to skin damage. And if you’re already taking every precaution under the sun to keep your skin looking great, why ruin it this way? That’s why it’s SO important to only exfoliate 2-3 times a week – you don’t want to overdo it with a scrub. And remember, think longer – not harder – when it comes to exfoliating. The simple way to fix the problem? Use a gentle cleanser and softly massage it into your skin with your fingertips. Enza Essentials Extraction Cleanser is…

Cleaning brushes with Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap ♡

I’d heard of this strange sounding product from a few youtubers and so when I came across it in TKMaxx (yes, again) I decided to substitute it for the baby shampoo that I usually use to clean my brushes. It’s common knowledge that not washing your brushes regularly can cause a buildup of bacteria which can cause breakouts on your skin, plus clean brushes apply product much more effectively. It’s a little bit of a hassle and I very rarely find myself in a mood where I want to clean my brushes but it has to be done! Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap is a concoction of organic oils which have antibacterial properties and it can be used for so many things, from washing your hands, to brushing your teeth, to cleaning your floors, I think i’ll stick to just using it for brushes for now but it’s a very handy thing to have around. To clean my brushes with it I first dampen the brush with water from the tap, pointing it downwards to avoid water getting to the…

Fake Tan Favorites

Fake tan is one of the best inventions ever. The sun is so damaging to the skin and yes you hear about it on the news and social media all the time but I don’t think everyone actually recognises how serious it can be and how awful it can be once your skin is damaged. You only get one body and it really is so important to look after yourself. Everyone wants to be tanned, especially in the summer and us girls go to all lengths to be the golden goddess we secretly are and don’t get me wrong I admit I have not always been the best at looking after my skin and have had my fair share of sun beds but recently I have really been looking into how much the sun can do and it honestly is shocking! Moral is the story is that you should stick to the fake stuff! My favourite brand of fake tan is Fake Bake. This tan is used by people…

Beauty Benefits of Tea ♡

I’m a big tea fan, particularly herbal teas, they’re so relaxing and are full of good stuff that can benefit you inside and out. I thought i’d share some of my favourite teas and the good things they can do for you. Green Tea  Green tea is renowned for it’s anti-oxidants and nutrients which help with fat loss, preventing cancer and improving brain function. Green tea contains certain antioxidants which reduce the formation of free radicals (basically a molecule that can cause cell damage) which can cause aging, meaning green tea helps prevent wrinkles. That’s reason enough for me to keep a mug close by at all times, but if drinking it is not your thing it has many benefits when applied to the skin. It’s known to help protect skin from UV rays when used in conjunction with sun screen, those pesky free radicals also help UV rays cause damage, green tea saves the day by neutralising the damage and helps with inflammation. Green tea is also known to have calming effects on the redness of Rosacea, if this is…
