Following my article, ‘Double Cleanse Your Way To Beautiful Skin,’ here are some of the best skincare products to achieve the best double cleanse and thus, amazing skin. The first step is to use an oil-based cleanser to rid the skin of pollutants and sebum. The second step is a water-based cleanser to diminish remaining dirt and impurities. Read on.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE The Inkey List. It offers straightforward products that deliver amazing results, without any unnecessary confusion. All this, without the hefty price tag attached. The forceful formula truly packs a punch in clearing away all impurities, whilst simultaneously restoring moisture levels. Combining sea buckthorn and sweet almond oils to effectively cleanse and panthenol to deliver moisture, this non-drying product provides next level brilliance for your skin!

Oily skin types often suffer more from breakouts. Therefore, you need this in your life. Combining PHA (polyhydroxyacids) this ingredient ensures effective exfoliation and in turn the reduction of blackheads and dead skin cells. The formula contains tea tree to successfully keep further spots at bay, and jojoba oil to gently hydrate and keep your skin looking luminous. Simply gorgeous.

Detox Your Skin With These Amazing Products

Hey Lovelies!

There’s only one way to combat the only-too-familiar effects that the gruelling winter weather bestows upon our precious skin. You must detox! Should your skin be more representative of Disney’s wicked witch rather than Snow White, this article is a must-read. Discover some truly amazing products that thoroughly detox. They are guaranteed to deliver sheer transformative joy to your skin – and a much-needed boost during what feels like apocalyptic mornings! (Seriously, taking the dog out for 10 minutes before work, turning a blotchy purple and feeling/looking like you’ve just returned from a week with Bear Grylls is NOT cool.)

1.Nassif MD Complexion Perfecting Detox Pads, £45, www.amazon.co.uk

This spectacular formula combines essential glycolic and salicylic acids that effectively exfoliate and a retinol-like product to brighten and rejuvenate. Furthermore, they are brimming with antioxidant value. These pads literally reach all the goals.

If you are on a detox mission and mean business, this collection is certainly worth the splurge (particularly now as it’s at a hugely discounted price). This hero kit offers cult products from the Moor Mud collection, of which makes light work of both scalp and skin transformation.

The kit Includes:

Deep Cleansing Mask (50ml)

Refining Facial Polisher (30ml)

Use these products, then wave goodbye to impurities, congested pores and uneven skin. Say hello to healthy, hydrated radiance. Yay!

During the winter months dehydrated skin can appear cakey under your fave foundation. If you don’t want to switch over your much-loved cover-up, simply add your foundation to your hydrating moisturiser. You will LOVE the difference this makes.

No, Ingrown Hair, You May Not Have A Place On The Face

So, you think you have your list of skin concerns sussed – then out of the blue without any warning, the dreaded ingrown hair suddenly appears. What’s worse, there seems to be no getting rid of it without serious skin removal – it’s as if it has self-set in concrete! Well, if this rings a rather large bell, fear not; here are the best tips and product advice to ensure the unwanted guest is permanently removed from your face (or anywhere else). I love

1.Exfoliate

Clogged hair follicles may cause hairs to grow inwards/sideways (any way but the right way). To Prevent this from happening as well as removing the stubborn already established hair by simply exfoliating in a circular motion and on a regular basis. The best products to use will contain BHA (beta-hydroxy acid) or salicylic acid. Alternatively, a sugar scrub (with as little oil as possible to prevent clogging) can help. I love Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant £26, Look Fantastic.

2.Tease Out With Tweezers

If you can see the hair near to the surface, try to carefully tease this out with a pair of tweezers, but always make sure they are sterilised.

3.Warm Water

Before hair removal soak a cloth in warm water and gently dampen the area you are about to treat.

4.Never Shave Eyebrow (or Any Other Are on Your Face)

There have been a few suggestions in the media about whether shaving areas on your face is a good idea. I cannot speak for everyone, but generally speaking unless you like stubble and ingrown hairs, avoid this one at all costs.

5.Ingrown Hair Preventative Products

Aside from exfoliating with a sugar scrub or products that contain BHA or salicylic acid, you can also aid in the prevention of these irksome hairs with specific ingrown hair treatments. There are many on the market but the best one I have come across is the Skin Doctors Hair More Hair Inhibitor Spray, (approximately £10 for 120ml). Buy here
