Solve Your Skincare Woes With These Amazing Products

Hey Lovelies!

Solve your skincare woes with these amazing products and get summer dress-ready.

Yes, we are all different – but there are some things we all have in common – skincare issues. At some point or another we all will experience the following concerns. Luckily the beauty industry has our back. Check out these amazing products guaranteed to eradicate those skincare woes for good.

1.Problem: Pink Arm Bumps (Official Term, Keratosis Pilaris).

Solution: First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub 10% AHA, $26, www.firstaidbeauty.com

What the HELL are these unforgiving spot-like bumps that seem to have taken permanent residence on my arms? Otherwise known as keratosis pilaris, this unsightly and rather annoying condition is caused simply by a build-up of protein (keratin). Those with dry skin tend to be more susceptible (another reason for reaching for that glass of water). Although you can never fully rid yourself of them, you can go a long way to alleviating the situation. Check out the First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser. Formulated with glycolic and lactic acids, with some fragments of pumice stone thrown in, this new product gently yet effectively deals with pores, loosens and removes the problematic top layer of skin; thus, revealing smoother and bump-free arms in time for summer.

 

  1. Problem: Dehydrated/Dry Skin

Solution: Institut Esthederm Intensive Hyaluronic Acid Serim £49.50 (30ml), www.facethefuture.co.uk

Should you suffer from severely dehydrated or dry skin you are probably a tad concerned about the heatwave forecasted for these coming weeks. Fear not friends, for Esthederm’s Intensive Hyaluronic Acid Serum will literally work big miracles. I was given this serum to review some time ago and I have never looked back. Formulated with 3 different types of hyaluronic acid and cellular water, this serum repairs the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It also replaces optimal moisture in the layers of skin, thus fully rehydrating even the driest of skin. Think oasis in a desert. The result is not only healthy-looking hydrated skin, but also a firmer, smoother and much rejuvenated complexion you will adore.

3.Problem: Spider Veins:

Solution: SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair, £59.95,

www.radianceskincare.co.uk

Home Remedy: Apple Cider Vinegar and Vitamin C Products

Okay, when I first noticed (in horror) this red thng on my leg and realised it wasn’t a pen mark that wouldn’t rub off I totally freaked out. Apparently twice as many women than men are affected (obviously) and they can be caused by standing for long periods (such is a woman’s life)), water retention and blood problems, which leads to weakened veins. Hey presto, spider legs. Discovering that the treatment is generally medical or surgical – and yep, you guessed it, is mind-blowingly expensive too. However, all is not lost.

One of my fave skincare brands, SkinCeuticals provide an aid for such dreaded woes. Should you discover your skin has been compromised, tackle it with their awesome formula that combines both beta glutin and centella asiatica. These ingredients work in unison to trigger the repair of the skin’s barrier, so it can go right ahead healing, protecting and making you feel amazing!

Alternatively, apple cider vinegar has been shown to greatly improve this concern. The natural cleanser will improve circulation helping to prevent further damage.

Furthermore, any vitamin C serums (or even some chopped parsley in essential oils), when applied will give your collagen production a super-boost, offer exceptional antioxidant benefits and greatly support cell repair.

4.Problem: Pigmentation

Solution: Neostrata Enlighten Pigment Controller, £49.95, www.facethefuture.co.uk

I tested this product (with some reservation) some time ago and I can say whole heartedly, that the treatment delivers amazing results. You can actually see it working within minutes of application. For this I will use my phrase I keep for products that continually astound me (of which several well-known magazines are also now coining) THIS PRODUCT IS MAGIC IN A BOTTLE!

Containing key ingredients proven to achieve effective results, including:

Neoglucosamine

Retinol

Skin Brightening Plant Extracts

Vitamin C

Turmeric Sourced Antioxidant

This product both addresses the cause of uneven pigmentation whilst treating the discoloration. Expect a seriously gorgeous and luminous complexion, all ready for summer.

6 Very Good Reasons For Wearing Sunscreen Every Day

Hey Lovelies!

Are you one of those people who rushes out to buy some sunscreen the moment the summer season commences? If so, it’s time to change. Your skin will thank you for it later on in life. Sunscreen provides that vital protection your skin needs throughout the year. Here are 6 reasons sunscreen should be a part of your daily skincare routine.

1.UV Rays

Many people believe (like I used to) that the sun is only harmful during summer months. So wrong! In fact, the sun’s rays are just as harmful in spring as they are in the middle of August.

2.Prohibits Skin Cancer

With 50% of all people set to encounter the C word (in some form or another) by 2020, there has never been a better reason to rush out and equip yourself with some SPF. There are a variety of skin cancers waiting to pounce – so don’t give them the chance.

3.Prevents Premature Skin Aging

Okay, so this is a puppy which reflects the opposite of aging. However, it’s too cute not to include and has wrinkly skin, so it kind of demonstrates my point. Think of sun cream as your secret weapon in the fight against those dreaded lines and wrinkles. Wearing it every day will stave off the years from mapping themselves across your face too soon.

4.Discoloration

If you want to avoid a face full of discoloration and dark spots (HELL, yeah) then sunscreen is imperative.

5.Blotchiness, Red Veins – No Thanks

The same can be said for preventing the onset of unwanted blotches that never seem to go, like – ever, and red veins that without the help of some expensive laser treatment will definitely never go. It’s far easier to slap a bit of sunscreen on your face.

6.Sun Burn

Granted, this is the UK – but miracles can happen. And with the population biting chunks out of the ozone layer like it’s a Michelin-starred chef’s signature chocolate desert, sun burn is ever-more likely.

In short people, wear your sunscreen. Like, every day people.

 

It’s Time For A Spring Skincare Transition

Hey Lovelies!

Spring is now underway and if you haven’t done so already, it’s time to make that skincare transition. Some of the products we use in winter can now be changed for more season-suitable skincare to compliment your beautiful complexion. Check out some key awesome products here:

1.IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Face & Neck Citrine Roller, $36, www.itcosmetics.com

Yes, it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather. Before you ditch those polo necks, make sure you are looking your best by using your face and neck roller. This brand-new cooling facial roller by IT Cosmetics is fantastic and treats the face, neck, décolleté and chest. Since using facial rollers I have noticed how much better my skin looks. They basically guarantee super-absorption of your chosen skincare ingredients and thus, superior results. YAASS!

Furthermore, the citrine is supposed to draw in clarity and focus – perfect for continuing with your new year’s resolutions and staying on track! N.b: Should you be a U.K resident you may need to head over to eBay for this one.

2.Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+/PA++++, £10.81, www.amazon.co.uk

It is a myth that we only need sunscreen during summer. In fact, the sun is potentially just as damaging during spring as it is in the middle of August.

If you’ve read my recent posts, you will probably be tired of hearing about my k-beauty obsession. However, I can’t state enough just how good this is. The Aqua Rich Watery Essence is so lightweight and quickly absorbed that you won’t realise you are wearing it. Additionally, being an SPF50+ and combining super-nourishing skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, royal jelly extract and citrus mix makes this particular sunscreen one not to miss. I use this product daily and love, love, love it!

3.The Hero Project Glow Drop Dry Touch Facial Oil Plus Vitamin C, £19 (30ml), www.mankind.com

Keep your complexion looking dewy and luminous this spring with the aid of incredible Glow Drops by The Hero Project. I am totally invested in this brand as it always gives my skin a boost of love, nourishment and protection without any greasy after-effect. The added vitamin C ensures those pesky wrinkles are kept firmly at bay and works in unison with the other components to guarantee a silky soft complexion. Better yet, the Glow Drops includes 10 natural essential oils and is 98% natural. Perfect skincare for a happy and radiant springtime look.

4.Maybelline Eyebrow Tattoo, £9.99, www.superdrug.co.uk

I am a true sucker for the eyebrow pencil and until recently I would say it is a must-have product. That was until I tried Maybelline’s Eyebrow Tattoo. Within 20 minutes you can achieve perfect brows (I mean PERFECT) and it lasts for several days. No mess, no fuss. Obviously, unless you have an endless supply of these boxes in your bathroom cabinet I wouldn’t ditch the pencil just yet. However, this is fab if you are planning a spring break away (or festival) and don’t want the hassle of reapplying the brows twice daily! This product is available in 6 shades.

5.Rimmel Insta-Fix & Matte Finishing Powder, £4.99, www.superdrug.com

We can’t forget the finishing powder and Rimmel got it spot on when they created the Insta FIX & MATTE. Velvety-soft, translucent, non-cakey and most importantly – it gets the job done people! Expect makeup to remain looking matte and flawless throughout the entire day. LOVE THIS.

3 Game-Changing Cleansing Oils

Hey Lovelies,

You may think cleansing oils aren’t a great idea (particularly if you have oily skin) but infact they are so much more effective than ordinary cleansers. Cleansing oils will not strip your skin so that it ends up dry and tight, will aid in the removal of excess sebum, address any pesky dry areas that are difficult to balance and give your skin a nourishing super-boost!

If you haven’t yet tried a cleansing oil, my advice would be to go out and buy one. 99% of cleansing oils are suitable for all skin types. Check out these 3 game-changing cleansing oils:

1.DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, £24

Should dehydrated or dry skin be a concern, this is the go-to cleanser to choose. Due to the inclusion of ingredients such as Argan oil and vitamin E, DHC has ensured this oil is brimming with highly beneficial nutrients to not only effectively cleanse, but thoroughly nourish the skin, too. This Deep Cleansing Oil is unlike your ordinary cleanser that will further dry your skin; therefore, it is amazing for those with more mature or sun damaged skin, too!

2.Elemis Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing oil, £31

Combining over 90% natural oils including chia seed, pomegranate and rose, the Elemis offers everything your skin needs to be beautifully clean, totally nourished and looking radiant. Furthermore, the inclusion of so many benficial properties ensures your skin remains fully protected whilst the moisture barrier is enhanced with SAS style strength! Go Elemis!

3.Sunday Riley, £35, Spacenk.com

I am a huge fan of Sunday Riley and their cleansing oil is no exception. Sunday Riley’s CEO C + E Micro-Dissolve Cleansing Oil combines an array of amazing ingredients to keep your complexion super-clean and super-happy. If you are looking for an all-singing all-dancing oil, this has to be it. Including components such as evening primrose, tangerine, turmeric and white willow bark, your face will (in one or two wipes), be cleansed, balanced, brightened, toned and nurtured! Wow, Sunday Riley!

Are You Using The Right Colour Corrector For Your Skin?

Hey Lovelies,

Choosing the right colour corrector can literally transform your look and makeup routine from one stress and stolen time to one so simple and smooth you will be kicking yourself for not checking this sooner. Check out the key colour correctors that address those pesky concerns – there’s no need for a fairy godmother when you have these products in your makeup bag!

1.The Dreaded Blemish

Why does it seem like blemishes wait until you have some awesome event lined up, choosing then to terrorise your skin? Don’t allow blemishes to overthrow your world. A green colour corrector will effectively neutralise the discolouration and redness of blemishes.  When choosing a green corrector, remember to pick a shade that suits your skin tone. I love Nyx Cosmetics Concealer Jar (£6) Once you have applied the corrector, cover with your chosen concealer.

2.Good Riddance Dark Circles

This time of year, in particular, the appearance of dark circles is as often as spam PPI phone calls (well, almost). Peeps, it’s time to phase them out for good. Once your usual skincare products (i.e. cleanser, toner, moisturiser and brightening eye cream) is on, apply the colour corrector that suits your skin tone: For fair skin choose pink. (I love Sephora’s Bright Future Color Corrector, $14).

For light to medium skin, choose peach.

For darker skin tones, choose yellow.

For deep skin tones, choose red.

3.Brighten Up With Purple

This shade will cancel out any yellow undertones and is a genius product for adding instantaneous luminosity to otherwise dull-looking skin. I love NIP+FAB Colour Corrector in Lavender (£8.91, Superdrug).

4.Hyper-Pigmentation – What’s That?

Do not let this little horror dictate your life. There are so many fabulous products that can swiftly correct any last trace of hyper-pigmentation and dark spots in seconds. Opt for an orange shade to neutralise brown spots. My hero product is Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage, $35. #beautifulskin

What is your favourite colour correcting product? xx
