Hi everyone, welcome back

As you know, there is no good makeup without good skin. Makeup should enhance your natural beauty, not mask it. I really like to take care of my skin every day…. the better you take care of your skin, the better you look.

Here are some tips to have good skin:

Sleep

A good night sleep mean good skin health. Getting a good night sleep will help to clear up skin.

Water

Water is really important for your skin, drink water hydrate your skin, water is essential for your body. Whether it’s drinking eight glasses a day, washing twice a day or hydrating whenever you need it – water is crucial….

Sunscreen

To avoid wrinkles, sunburn, brown spots, protect your face with a sun protection, even a basic foundation creates some protection from the sun’s rays.

Take it of 

Remove your makeup. Leaving makeup on overnight clogs pores and is probably the worst thing you can do to your skin.

Healthy food 

Avoid processed food, which is full of chemical and preservatives. Eat a diet rich in antioxidant nutrients.

Moisture

Gel, cream or a lotion you will need a moisturiser that suits your skin type.

One of the keys to beautiful skin is a cleansing routine…..

Skincare Routine

Hi everyone, welcome back

One of the best keys to beautiful skin is a cleansing routine that is gentle, thorough and relaxing.

  1. Apply the cleanser with your fingertips, beginning at the center of your face and working upwards and outwards. Massage the cleanser in with your fingertips to soften any congested areas in the skin. this relaxes the pores for further treatment and helps boost circulation. Rise off excess cleanser.
  2. Soak cotton -wool pads in cool water, and then douse them in eye makeup remover. Lay one over each eye, wait for a few seconds, then rub a pads with your fingertips to loosen the eye makeup. Vigorous rubbing or pulling of the delicate skin around the eyes will eventually cause the skin to loose elasticity and sag. Remove and gently wipe under the eyes to remove the facial traces of makeup.
  3. Using cotton -wool pads soaked in warm water and alcohol – free toner, sweep the rest of the face to remove the cleanser. Gently splash with cool water to stimulate the skin before applying mask.
  4. Apply the face mask, Taking care to avoid the eye and lip areas. Don’t forget your neck which must be included in each and every step of the cleansing routine.
  5. Remove the mask gently with the wet face cloth. Using clean cotton- wool pads soaked in warm water to remove any remaining traces. Splash face and finish off with your moisturizer.

The basics 

Cleansers; Makeup removers;  Moisturizers 

Beyond the Basis 

Masks; Exfoliators; Eye creams; Serums 

 

As you know, there is no good makeup without good skin. Makeup should enhance your natural beauty, not mask it. Taking responsibility for your skin, means getting into a proper regime and looking after it correctly each and every day.

Hope you enjoy reading

B. Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz

Hi everyone, welcome back

Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spriz rapidly replenish the skin and lock in moisture for 12 hours without clogging the pores. Is ideal for use when travelling or to revive tired skin.

I am a huge fan of facial water sprays that help cool you down when it’s hot and don’t make a mess of your make up ….

I found that adding this to my skincare routine, helped my skin stay moisturized throughout the day, as it can be used alone or on top of your makeup as a top up and it leaves the skin looking dewy and moisturized throughout the day. I’ve been using Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz for 3 weeks and I’m really happy with the results….

The size of the bottle is perfect for popping into your handbag when you’re on-the-go and the pump-action spray doesn’t dispense too much product with each spritz.

Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz is for all skin types ….

This product is amazing! I definitely recommend it. 

Thanks 😉

Your skin

Hi everyone, welcome back

Beautiful skin is essential for making the most of your looks.Without it, all that carefully apply makeup will either go patchy and blotchy, slide into lines and wrinkles or disappear off your face in a shiny oil mess. the simple true is that most of us don’t have beautiful skin. In fact, we don’t even have so-called ‘normal’ skin, with its plump, shiny texture, radiant glow and minimal breakouts. Instead we have dry bits, oil bits or irritated bits, and that means our skin doesn’t always look or feel as good as it should. But the good news is that you don’t have to put up with this. By knowing what kind of skin you have and how to treat it, you can solve your particular problems.

Tips for oily skin 

  • Only cleanse twice a day.
  • If shine still slips through, blotting paper is great for mopping up excess oil.
  • Ensure all your products – even your makeup – are oil free.
  • if you get painful red spots. a little lavender oil dabbed on the skin will help reduce inflammation in minutes.

Your key products  – Foaming cleanser ; Oil free moisturizer; Blotting papers; spot stick ….

Tips for Dry skin  

  • Only cleanse your skin once at the end of the day. This will remove dirty and grime but will prevent further drying, in the morning a splash of water and some moisturizer are all you need.
  • Exfoliation is essential for dry skin.
  • Never expose your skin to really hot water, it dries out parched skin.
  • Never dry your skin completely. One of the best ways to hydrate dry skin is just to pat it with the towel after washing, then apply moisturizer to seal in that extra moisture.

Your key products – Creamy cleanser; Exfoliating scrub; Rich moisturizer; Facial mist; Moisturizing mask.

All the skin care in the world won’t help if you don’t tackle the factors that destroy your skin.

  • Protect your skin from the sun 
  • Don’t smoke (Is very bad for your skin)
  • Stress affects the skin in numbers of ways ( try not to stress) 
  • Sleep well 
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water per day

Beware the unwashed makeup brush. It will leave traces of unwanted bacteria and colour on your face and will hinder the application of powder, lipstick and concealer. Follow these hints to get the best out of your brushes:

  • If you use makeup tools everyday, wash them regularly, every four to six weeks.
  • Use a mild baby shampoo to clean brushes and rise with a mild antiseptic solution.
  • For long powder brushes, sweep trough shampoo diluted with tepid water, then rinse under tap.
  • Finer brushes should be dipped into neat shampoo. then lathered before rinsing.
  • Direct heat damaged bristles, so don’t blow dry with your hair dryer.
  • To Dry, carefully squeeze out excess water with a towel, reshape and lay brushes flat on the edge of the basin, allowing the air to circulate. Dry overnight.

Hygiene Tips 

  • Hygiene is an important aspect of makeup care. Wash your makeup bag itself every few weeks and rinse brushes, powder puffs and sponges in soap water at least once a month.
  • You are particularly at risk of infection in the case of mascaras and other products that come into contact with the eyes, so never be tempted to share or land our makeup.
  • Be careful when testing lipsticks; the herpes virus is easily transmitted via lipstick. Rather test lipsticks on the back of your hand.

Always keep the used brushes away from the fresh ones as you don’t want the products from the used brushes to stick on to the fresh brushes. It not only increases you work load, but repeated cleaning can also reduce the life of the brush.
