My Skin Care Regrets and How to Repair Them

If you could go back in time and tell your younger self not to do one thing to your skin, what would it be?

A lot of us have skin care mistakes that we’ve grown and learned from but what I’ve learned from, some are still none the wiser about and are still doing them to this day. So in order to inform people, I made a list of things you should NEVER do to your skin, in the form of things I have experienced.

Most people these days know very well about the obvious things, so I’m going to cover the more obscure ones that could really help you.Read More »

Growing up, we’re given all sorts of advice to prevent acne and then how to get rid of spots we may have, and we also hear how to prevent wrinkles and when we should begin to use anti-aging. But there is so much conflicting advice out there that it’s hard to know what is right. In my research into skin care, I have come across so much interesting information and now I’ve compiled some potentially shocking myths along with their truths and brought some of them into one place so you don’t have to go looking around for them!Read More »

How To Reduce Oil Production in Your Skin


When this sort of topic is addressed or any problems towards skin care, it’s amazing how many times I see advice saying: cleanse frequently, wash your face twice a day, exfoliate and moisturise. As if it is that simple. It leads me to believe those who are giving such “advice” are telling people how to overcome a problem they’ve never had themselves.

When it comes to specifically reducing oil production, it’s not as simple as just cleansing, toning and moisturising (or eating less greasy food); it’s about the products you use and the ingredients in the products you use.Read More »

Save Money on Your Eye Makeup Remover

At first
I woke up at somewhere around half 4 and was feeling really thirsty (not unusual lately, everything feels dry). I was trying hard last night to keep my face off my pillow because I’ve been taking extra extra care of my skin lately. I did extra moisture care for my hair before I went to sleep as well because it’s been so dry lately as well. I went to the hair salon last week and the beautician said she could see my hair needed moisture as soon as she looked at it. I’m usually not a sensitive person but that was like a bitch slap to the face, only because she knew exactly what she was talking about as a black beautician. And because I thought my hair looked cute and curly that day. But yeah, everything’s just been so dry lately. It’s never been so severe, I actually considered that my body was giving up on me yesterday. If anyone has some advice for me on this topic of dryness, I would be so grateful. I’m doing a lot of research on it nowadays.

Yeah, so because I couldn’t back to sleep last night, I wrote a little as I stayed awake in my bed listening to Radiohead.

Eye Makeup Remover
But anyway, focusing on today’s topic of beauty, I’d like to introduce another way to save money on a skin care product. Years ago when I first started using eye makeup remover, I immediately went to look on the high end of things. I remember that I simply looked around Clarins in Debenhams because upon previously being there with my friend, we had received such awesome customer service and free samples of a cream and I was really impressed with that. On this certain visit to Clarins, I came across an eye makeup remover that looked pretty cool: Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover at £17. It had two solutions in the one bottle that you would shake to mix up and then apply that to your eye area. So I bought it.
