Top 10 Skincare Tips

Being in the beauty industry, I get so many people asking me about skincare, therefore I thought I would do a post on my top 10 skincare tips :)

1. Avoid exfoliating products that contain sharp grains as they can scratch and damage the skin.

2. Always make sure your moisturiser or foundation contains an SPF to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays.

3. Drink plenty of water.

4. As we age, cell turnover slows down making the skin look dull and lackluster, therefore exfoliating is the best 'anti ageing' tip I can give you! This is because when we exfoliate we promote skin renewal, therefore we stimulate new cells to be pushed upwards towards the surface, and these are the healthy, plump cells we all want to see.

5. Always take your skincare products down onto the neck and decolletage.

6. Use your ring finger to apply eye products as you use less force and wont damage the delicate skin around your eye.

7. Use products that are formulated without any nasty ingredients. Natural ingredients are always better.

8. Always double cleanse in the evening. Once to remove make up and the second time to thoroughly cleanse the skin.  

9. Always wash your hands before starting your skin care routine to stop the spread of bacteria.

10. Try to cut down on caffeinated drinks, smoking, sun exposure and alcohol as these all dehydrate the skin, which leads to premature ageing. 

Linked below is a few blog posts about a few of my favourite products and other skincare tips...

    1. Aw thank you Lauren i'm glad they helped :) x

  2. Thanks for the tips Rosie :) I remember I once bought an exfoliating face scrub and becuase the beads were too hard it left my face red, patchy and sore. Now I always make sure my scrubs have soft exfoliating beads or none at all, as that was a very horrible experience. I'm now following you on GFC and Bloglovin'.
