I get asked by friends, family and many of you out there, how I get my foundation to look flawless. Believe me it hasn’t always and I have many pictures, which I rather not share, where it has been less than flawless!
However, over the years, I have tested many foundations, brushes, sponges, primers, powders to get me to where I am today, which is a fairly long lasting flawless base.
Before I get into my routine and what I use, it is important and I mean extremely important to ensure your skincare routine is spot on. Without looking after your skin, it will be near enough impossible to get that flawless base. Watch this space for my updated skincare routine which helps me achieve the skin I am now in love with.
So lets get to it.
Yes, I really did manage to get myself off the medication and rid myself of the confidence crushing condition I have suffered with for nearly 10 years.
Oh how I have missed posting on here and I am so glad I am finally getting round to getting back to my little blogging world. My laptop broke, work got crazy, life got crazier, but now I am back and ready to start sharing some exciting things with you.
I have been itching to fill you in on my new acne routine. Hands down, I would say this is probably the most life changing part of my beauty routine. I recently went back to the doctor as I was getting fed up with breakouts that weren’t clearing and each breakout causing me more scaring. I just wasn’t winning. I was a little hesitant as the medications I have used in the past have stopped working as well as some that have caused a lot of irritation to my already sensitive skin.
Oops, my September favourites is slightly late. I haven’t been well and have just started to feel a little human again so am really excited to share with you what I have been loving during the month of September. I can certainly say, I will be using these products for a while as I am totally addicted and have all made their way into my daily beauty routine. So, let’s get started : )
Dr Nick Lowe – Cooling Menthol Facial Scrub – Anti Age
I am completely obsessed with Dr Nick Lowe’s facial cleanser, so much so that I decided to invest in some of his other skincare products and boy am I glad I did. The first one being this menthol based facial scrub which is heaven in a tube. The product claims to “reveal a softer, brighter and more radiant complexion using gentle spherical micro beads to smooth the skin, purify pores and stimulate cell renewal.” It is advised on the packaging that this facial scrub should be used weekly, however can be used as required. This scrub is perfect for when your skin feels dull, clogged up and perhaps a little congested. After one use of this scrub, it certainly lives up to what it claims to do. Your face immediately glows, pores appear smaller and it sheds all those horrid dead skins cells which give you that clogged up/congested feeling. My complexion was definitely brighter, smoother, clearer and revitalised. In my view, this scrub is excellent and reasonably priced!
Millions of us out there suffer from acne prone skin, myself included and have suffered for nearly 10 years now. I am constantly on the look out for new remedies, different ointments, lotions and treatments to help me maintain my difficult skin.
I prefer to use home remedies, or products that are as natural and organic as possible whenever I can. I may have young looking skin now, but soaking my skin up with strong chemicals day in day out will only damage my skin in the long run which will age my skin faster than it should, and I certainly don’t want that! For years I have used medication prescribed to me by my doctor, but had been made aware through internet research that this could possibly damage my skin and cause early ageing. I have completely stopped using prescribed medication and now treat and maintain my acne with my own selection of cleansers, toners, moisturisers and topical treatments.
