I hope you’re all having a lovely easter weekend at home or if you’re part of the lucky few away. Either way, I hope you’re enjoying yourselves.
A few weeks ago I decided to do Self-care Sunday staying with that theme of incorporating more topics into my blog I decided to branch out more.
Where I can focus on a wider range of topics Beauty & Lifestyle focused
How can you still feel like you when are covered in today’s dinner & knee deep in nappies?
Sometimes motherhood isn’t Glamorous, behind the beautifully edited Instagram photos is a Mother juggling numerous nappies & household duties. There’s no shame in taking time out & pampering yourself. There’s nothing wrong with taking every day & making sure you feel good in it! Of course, there are still days when you don’t get out of your baggy T’s and leggings and there’s nothing wrong with that I think throughout this blog I say “Motherhood is hard” and it really is and some days you just can’t be bothered.
BEAUTY – Keep it simple
I barely wear makeup anymore so I like to make sure my skin is looked after. I need my routine to be simple & quick yet effective. Alessandra Steinherr Beauty director for Glamour Magazine recommended Deciem The ordinary skin care range during one of her Live Instagram chats. My Question to her was… Simple, effective skincare range that didn’t break the bank & boy did she deliver! All products are Vegan, Cruelty free & affordable!
I prefer a chemical Exfoliator over physical exfoliation. Why? Physical exfoliator can cause micro tears in the skin. Don’t panic throw away your products just yet however but do avoid fruit pits & nut products so that certain peach product that costs £1 throw it out!
Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This toning solution offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use. A quick swipe with a cotton pad in the PM & you are done!
This treatment solution helps exfoliate the inside walls of pores to fight the appearance of blemishes NOT recommended if you have sensitive skin. NOT recommended for dry skin or cystic acne. This is amazing at clearing up my skin used AM & PM all over face or as a direct spot treatment depending on how I’m feeling.
This is my FAVOURITE product I’ve ever used! It’s fantastic for keeping skin hydrated & because It’s non-comedogenic it keeps skin clear and blackhead free. Think of it as a hyaluronic acid & moisturiser in one. It’s an anti-oxidant, light weight and combats damage cause by free radicals – What more could you want!?!
Lastly, Don’t neglect your lips! (I own way too much) not enough lip products. Now it’s warmer I’m loving Eve lom – This contains Menthol to soothe & freshen & bees wax to seal in moisture for longer hydration. Leaving lips with a semi matte finish it’s perfect for underneath lipstick.
The most divine smelling multi-purpose oil, it can be used on face, body & hair! Enriched with highly nourishing Tsubaki oil & it is anti-oxidant A little goes a long way – This sample size has lasted me months. It’s not overly oily leaving you feeling greasy yuck! Which is why it’s a firm favourite.
