Now by now we’ve all heard about hyaluronic acid; the magical ingredient in all hydrating serums. Hyaluronic acid, just in case you don’t know, is essentially a connective tissue that we all have naturally in our bodies. It gets its cult status because it can hold up to 1000x its own weight in water, meaning…Continue Reading “Save, Spend, Splurge | Hydrating Serums”
There’s no more disappointing feeling than finally getting that product that everyone has been talking about only to discover it’s not good. Whether it doesn’t work for your skin, gives you a weird reaction or doesn’t really seem to do anything at all, the crushing feeling is always the same. Not to mention the FOMO…Continue Reading “Skincare Not Worth The Hype | Unpopular Opinions”
If you’re the kind of person who likes to workout outside, winter is rough. If you’re a runner, cyclist or you just prefer to exercise in your local park rather than at home or in a gym, this post is for you. My first tip is for everyone but runners and cyclists pay extra attention….Continue Reading “Winter Workout Skincare | Keep Skin Healthy in Winter”
I hate this time of year.
Actually that’s not true, this is my favourite season. I love the deep autumnal colours, I love the crisp leaves on the ground, I love the fact I’m no longer getting funny looks because I’m opting for a wine coloured lipstick in the middle of summer.
But I do hate my skin. Autumn is by far the season I struggle with my skin the most; it’s not quite time for the thick winter creams yet summertime skincare is no longer cutting it in the moisture department. Here are a few swaps and additions I’ve been making to my routine to help give my skin a little pre-winter boost.Continue Reading "Seasonal Switch Up | Summer to Autumn"

Hello, Welcome to my new series, Glow A-Z. Once a fortnight we’re going to go through the alphabet and talk about a product or ingredient that’s good for skin, but because our skin’s health is about more than just a topical application a few times a week, we’re going to do a food alphabet…Continue Reading “Glow A-Z”
This post is very exciting for me as it’s one I never thought I’d write. I’m going to put my cards on the table and say on the whole, cheap skincare is not my thing. Sure, I like the odd product here and there and I love (really love) a lot of French pharmacy lines, but I can probably count the number of products under £10 I truly love on one hand.Continue Reading "The Ordinary Haul"
