Check out the only 70%+ organic sunscreen mist that does NOT combine oxybenzone or octinoxate. These two common little devils are found in most SPFs and cause allergenic and cellular mayhem. Additionally, they are now considered to cause coral bleaching, thus leading to the death of coral reefs.

When you use this your skin will enjoy a powerhouse of natural yet highly effective components, including red algae, vitamin C ester, vitamin E and bisabolol that together achieve results too good to pass-by. Basically, SPF is enhanced; UV triggered skin damage is lessened; skin elasticity is maintained, and your complexion looks firm and smooth.

Furthermore, Soleil Toujours has also combined within the formula green tea extract, which works as a big warrior in protecting your skin form environmental stressors.

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

Spongebob, 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.

The Fastest And Most Effective Facial Exercises To Stay Toned

Hey Lovelies!

I’d thought I would share with you some really easy facial exercise techniques for keeping your beautiful face toned and youthful.

One bleak morning (not too long ago), running late and rushing to get out of the door, I was momentarily frozen as I caught sight of something shocking whilst passing the mirror in the hall. The unexpected sight I am referring to was nothing less than a double chin brazenly staring back at me. It wasn’t even a modest size. Until now, it had somehow gone unnoticed, but obviously the extra bag of sweets wasn’t a good idea, because now I looked as though the bag hadn’t quite reached my throat, but instead was hanging out with its twin, underneath my face.

By doing these few facial exercises for a few minutes each day, my chin demon has completely gone and I am no longer fearful of checking my reflection or eating sweets.

Check out these simple techniques – you will be amazed at how quickly your face tones up:

1.Stretch

Looking upwards, lift your chin and slightly tilt your face to one side, so that you are looking over one shoulder. Next jut out your bottom jaw so that your lower teeth sit gently over your upper teeth. (Do not glance in the mirror whilst doing this). You should feel a slight stretch. Hold the pose for 20 seconds, then relax and repeat whilst looking over the opposite shoulder. Do these 5 times for each side, twice each day. Before you know it, your chin will lose its twin!

2.Neck Tone

Drop your chin forward to your chest and rotate your head to the left. Hold this position for 10 seconds.

Move your head back down until your chin is to your chest, then rotate your head to the right and hold position for 10 seconds. Repeat this alternating process for a few minutes each day.

3.A Chin Slap

Using the back of your hand, gently (but not so gentle it is futile) slap your lower jaw for a minute. Repeat this twice daily.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. xx
