keeping my skin clear through freshers

My house mates ❤

As everybody knows, freshers is filled with non stop drinking and eating crap, but I was determined to not let that effect my skin as it has been extremely clear over the Summer. As the temperature has dropped, my legs and arms have become very dry, so I have been moisturising near enough everyday after my shower. This is also to try my best to keep my tan!

Say goodbye to dry skin & hair this time of year

I HATE BLACKHEADS – 2 PRODUCTS THAT REDUCED MY BLACKHEADS FAST

EXFOLIATE

Neutrogena – Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating

At the moment I am using my favourite blackhead eliminator to exfoliate my skin. When I am drinking a lot of alcohol my skin breaks out in spots due to the amount of sugar and lack of water.

TONER

L’oreal Paris – Age perfect Micellar Water

This toner does not just keep your skin hydrated by removes your make up easily after a night out. It cleanses your skin, keeping it feeling smooth and hydrated. I prefer to use this than ordinary make up remover.

SUNSHINE

I know the weather in England has not been great over the past couple of weeks, but when the sun is out always try to make the most of it. Although it is cold, sunshine is so good for your skin. It will keep it clear and bronzed due to it triggering the synthesis of vitamin D in your body and causes the cells to travel to the outer layers. This means that the skin is able to protect and repair your skin.

LOTS OF WATER

When I am at University I find it such a challenge to fill my body with water, I don’t know why? Maybe its because I don’t like the tap water or spending money on it but my new trick it to put a filled up bottle of water into the fridge over night so it is ready for me to take to Uni in the morning. Water is so important, especially for your skin and body throughout freshers.

GREEN TEA

GREEN TEA is my new trick, it gives your skin a special glow and keeps you from getting ill throughout freshers. I try to have a big mug of green tea before I go to bed to settle my body. It is the healthiest drink on the planet as it is filled with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on your body. It is not just good for your skin but good for fat loss, the function of the brain and will improve health benefits.

I hope you have all had a fun freshers and are ready to get stuck into University, Freshers flu is a killer and if I am honest I don’t know why they call it freshers flu, once you have it you will have it for the whole year. Happy Tuesday!!

I HATE BLACKHEADS – 2 PRODUCTS THAT REDUCED MY BLACKHEADS FAST

Why do you get blackheads?

Blackheads form when a clog develops in the opening of hair follicles in your skin which produces oil. This oil is called sebum and helps keep your skin soft. Dead skin cells and oils collect in the opening to the skin follicle, producing a bump called a comedo.

So recently I have been suffering from a lot of blackheads all over my nose and my chin. I did a bit of research about it as I have never really had a blackhead problem before. Blackheads are formed by blocked/clogged up pores which is really strange as I am normally extremely good at cleaning underneath my skin. I came across these two products in Tescos which were at an affordable price, especially for a student, so instead of getting stressed about why I had them, I thought I would give them a go.

VISIBLY CLEAR

The Visibly Clear blackhead eliminator is the cheapest out of the two products. I have only used one of this companies products before at that was a face exfoliator and I loved it, so I new I would love this product as well. So I have now been using this blackhead eliminator for two weeks and it has worked a charm. My blackheads have definitely decreased as the scrub goes straight into your pores.

CLEAN & CLEAR

This product is even better. It is a slightly thinker scrub so you know it is really cleaning out your skin. It has tiny, blue bits in the scrub which you can feel whilst rubbing it into your skin. Instead of just using this blackhead clearer on my nose and chin, I have been using it all across my face as it has left it feeling so fresh.

VANITY PLANET

I have been using my Vanity Planet electric brush to get the  scrub deep into my skin as it gives your face more pressure than just using your hand. This is a product in which I will never regret buying, it has worked wonders on my skin and I can rely on it to clean underneath my pours.

Let me know of any products you have used to reduce your blackheads.

MY FAVOURITE PRODUCTS FOR GLOWING SKIN THIS SPRING | AVEDA – BOTANICAL KINETICS

“Aveda skin care has kept my skin feeling hydrated and healthy”

Recently I have come across this incredible brand called Aveda. They range from products for your skin, shampoos, treatments masks and they even have a mens range. This is a skin care kit in which I got in a pack of 3. A gel cleanser, toning mist and intense hydrating soft creme. So I thought it would be a good idea to talk you through how I use these products as a Spring skin care routine.

FIRSTLY: Firstly I wet my skin with water in the sink with my hands. I try not to use flannels as I don’t want to put too much pressure on my skin whilst I am trying to cleanse my skin, especially as you are going into your pores. I then wash my hands and squirt a teaspoon of the gel cleanser onto my fingers. Rub it all over your face until you feel like it has been absorbed by your pores. Sometimes I use my …… This will also exfoliate your skin and make it feel the best it can. I recommend one of these, they always come in handy.

SECONDALY: I try and use a facemark around 3 times a week, especially when i have been busy. This is my perfect way to relax as it makes you feel completely refreshed afterwards. In this Spring skincare routing I am using the …. which is one of my favourites at the moment. It is a green tea flavour and re hydrates your skin, especially when you have had a long weekend boozing with friends or at University.

THIRDLY: After leaving the face mask on for 10-15 minutes I remove it and leave my face to dry. I then use the intense hydrating soft creme to moisturise my skin and close up my pours before I spray the toning mist all over my face.

This is my skin care routine which I am loving at the moment. Clearing my skin and getting it back to normal through my time off University has been a struggle and these are the products which have majorly helped. Also eating clean play a massive factor and drinking lots of water.
