STARTING OFF: SKINCARE



If you haven't already seen the hype covering #bbloggers about #theSOproject, where have you been?! To cut it short, it's a weekly tag where over 100 bloggers are posting about ONE subject each week. We'll be talking about all our tips and tricks for those of you just starting with make up, skincare and so on. To find out more about #theSOproject, check out Steph's post here!

Since I did a huuuuge post all about my daily skincare routine and my added extras the other day, I don't want to bore you too much, so lets get down to real basics here.

If you're a lover of face wipes, we can't be friends. Not unless you're willing to change, that is! Yes, they're convenient and easy but they're so drying and they don't cleanse your skin one bit. Try using a balm or milk cleanser to really massage your skin and get away all the dirt and grime. If you wear quite heavy makeup, I'd recommend using a micellar water prior to the balm just to get away the bulk of it, but don't solely rely on these to remove your makeup!

I think toners are perfect for tackling problems with the skin, exfoliating and giving your skin a good boost in the morning. Try a Pore Purifying toner to give your skin a good clean, followed by a hydrating toner to throw back those essential oils.
Moisturisers are all down to personal preference - if you have dry skin, use a thicker/intensely hydrating one, oily/normal skin, use a lighter, gel like texture.

The main thing is that you listen to your skin, give it what it wants and for God's sake, it doesn't want baby wipes. If you really want to love your skin, check the ingredients of your products, and if they include alcohol, parabens and mineral oil, you should probably give it a miss.

If you have any questions, do leave a comment below and leave your Twitter so I can get back to you on it easier!

  5. I've never tried Lush's Ultrabland before but I really want to. I agree with you about make-up wipes, they're beauty's bad habit x
