It’s been about 3.5 weeks. I never intended to stay away this long but sometimes life doesn’t work the way you’d like and there are things you have to put first.
Things that I love to do like blogging, writing my novel, I just have had no time to do which is quite sad. Since my last post, although I couldn’t prepare and write a full blog post, I came up with so many ideas of things I wanted to write about and share with you.
Honestly, I’ve been very preoccupied with trying to move to London and more specifically finding a job. There are a lot of jobs but it’s very competitive (especially the industry I’m looking to) and what’s even more difficult for me is that despite my many skills and education, I don’t have much work experience. Along with the internal issues I already deal with it’s really taken its toll on my psyche. And there are many things I have to do as well that take up so much of my time, which is why I sadly haven’t been able to blog but I’m here now and I never for one second lost my ambition to make this blog continue to rise and help more and more people. I have something big coming for this blog. The key is perseverance. I truly believe that because it has taken me to where I am today.
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 »
As the weather gets colder, it’s very common for the area around our eyes to get more dry and dryness is a leader in the causes of issues you can have with the skin around your eyes. It makes your eyes look tired and more aged.Read More »
As the weather gets colder, it’s may be harder to keep our skin moisturised and soft. But there is one product that I always turn to if ever my skin is looking dull or feeling a bit rough. The benefits of it is that it includes vitamin C peptides which revitalise dull skin and give it that glow that we love. These peptides also exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells that make our skin look dry and dull and miraculously reveals soft baby-like even skin underneath. This also uses new technology to make the product work super fast to the point that you feel a difference when you use it and when you’re done you see the results immediately.
So that is this?!
This is my number one holy grail: The Philosophy Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel! It’s an at-home quick and easy peel with astonishing results. Whether you have young or aging skin, this peel works to resurface your skin and replenish it with vitamin C, leaving it soft and with an even skin tone. Philosophy also claims, the technology used in this “is light years ahead of traditional microdermabrasion.” So, let’s get into a full review!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 »
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 »
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.
