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.

1.Eye Cream: For Damaged/Dry/Mature Skin Choose Benton Fermentation Eye Cream (10z), £19.04, uk.iherb.com

The eyes are the window to the soul and as such, we want them looking gorgeously appealing for a s long as possible. No one understands this more than Korean women and one of their favourite is Benton’s Fermentation Eye Cream. So, I took this advice and have been using the eye cream for 2 months and I love how smooth my eye area both looks and feels.

Combining ingredients such as Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifida Ferment Lysate, sh-Oligopeptide-1, and Ceramides, the cruelty-free formula really makes a difference to those with dry or aging skin. Furthermore, this high-quality and much sought-after eye cream contains macadamia seed oil. This wondrous ingredient combines fatty acids (including Omega 9) to fully moisturise, regenerate and soften the skin. You will love the results!

2.Moisturiser: For Dry Skin Try LJH Dr.’s Care BIO+N Barrier Cream For Oily, Sensitive And Very Dry Skin (Anti-Aging), $15, www.amazon.com

The rationale behind K-beauty’s 10-step system is that by layering up your products, your skin will truly reap the benefits. Moisturising is the one remaining step in a Korean night-time skincare routine and should you have dry skin, you need to look for a product that not only contains hydrating components, but successfully locks in that much-needed moisture also. Behold the LJH Dr.’s Care BIO+N Barrier Cream. This incredible barrier cream will literally transform your skin, eradicating those pesky dry patches and returning your complexion to one of gorgeous vitality. I LOVE THIS!

3.Sunscreen: Try Biore UV AQUA Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+/PA ++++, £9.89, www.amazon.co.uk

We want a sunscreen to fully protect and boy, does this do a good job. Providing optimal protection against UV rays and being sweat and water-proof, the lightweight watery formula doesn’t feel like the sticky mess that is sun cream; thus, it melts straight into the skin and stays put!

Additionally, this amazing formula contains skin-loving hyaluronic acid, royal jelly extract and citrus mix – making it an unbelievable skincare product to boot!

I have been using this sunscreen for some considerable time and I have no intention of EVER running out!

The Best New Beauty Products Of 2018

Hey Lovelies!

Happy Friday!

Since the beginning of 2018 we have seen some amazing new beauty product launches, designed to make our lives that bit better. Here is my round up of the best:

1.Bobbi Brown Skin Longwear Weightless Foundation, (SPF15) £31, www.bobbibrown.co.uk

For anyone looking for light and long-lasting coverage, this new foundation from the fabulous Bobbi Brown brand will be a sure hit. Basically, the Longwear Foundation feels totally weightless and blends in seamlessly, providing a matte finish that looks like you are wearing no makeup. I love this foundation!

2.Clarins SOS Primer, £26.50, www.clarins.co.uk

If like me, you suffer from dark spots, imperfections and redness, the SOS Primer will feel like a God Send. Packed with antioxidants to nurture and protect the skin, whilst providing targeted colour corrector to effectively deal with any skin concern, this SOS Primer is a must-have. The only problem is, should you need a colour corrector for more than one concern type, you may need more than one shade. There are 6 incredible shades available – bye, bye, wages!

3.Kiehls Powerful Strength-Line Reducing Concentrate, £49.50 (50ml), www.kiehls.co.uk

Amazing beauty brand Kiehls just gave one of their key serums a makeover. I didn’t think it could get much better, but the Concentrate is now packed with even more essential anti-aging and hydrating vitamin C and hyaluronic acid – 12.5% to be exact. Take that you pesky fine lines.

4.L’Oreal EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask, $3.99, www.amazon.com

This is L’Oreal’s first hair sheet mask and I am smitten! Designed to be a shower steam and deep moisture treatment, this product includes aloe blossom to offer intense hydration and nourishing love for your locks. The result is luscious and super shiny hair that feels totally weightless. #Hairhappiness! Buy from Amazon here

5.Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, £35, www.narscosmetics.co.uk

I am a huge fan of Nars products and given the fact that this foundation promises to stay put for up to 16 hours, and given the other fact that I ALWAYS have to reapply my product at least once during the day, I couldn’t wait to try. The new Nars Foundation is available in 33 shades and glides on to the skin with remarkable flawless results. I have fair skin so love this product in Oslo. The outcome is amazing looking skin that still looks like skin – and it lasts!

6.Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40, £22.95, www.amazon.co.uk

I know I go on about this A LOT, but sunscreen is probably THE most important cream you should be applying to your skin. As it turns out we should be worrying about the infrared radiation and light from our tablets and phones as well as UVA and UVB rays. Yay! Thankfully, this new product will provide you with all the protection you need and better yet, it soaks in seamlessly and feels practically weightless, too.

7.Wunder2 Super-Stay Liquid Liner, £12.95, www.wunder2.co.ukMetallic White Gold Super-Stay Liner

It’s not just fondations that need reapplication – eyeliners, too, suffer the same fate. That’s where iconic brand Wunder2 comes in – their newly launched Super-Stay liners glide on effortlessly to enable precise application, thus creating a highly pigmented pop of beautiful colour that actually stays put! Available in 3 waterproof collections (Essential, Glitter and Metallic) these 24hour wear liners ensure you don’t need to check the mirror – even if you stay out all night! Buy here
