Hey all, it's is bank holiday over in the U.K so I thought I do something different. One of my little secret talents is that I can braid my own hair,does it take ages: yes, can anyone do it: yes. All that is required is patience and practice....
I am certain by the time you start reading this, you have already familiarised yourself with what plastic pollution is....? We have become too reliant on plastic, but now it's time to find other alternatives.
If you've been following me for some time, you will know I am an advocate for organic products. I have spoken about skincare over and over.. but it's never over.
Let's talk about it, why is it so important to promote organic and vegan products? It is because half the time we are clueless as to what our makeup, shower gels, lotions contain, and a lot of times they do contain chemicals which are harsh on our skin. It's also important to know your skin type.. and how it can be affected by seasonal changes.
To get to the point, I have discovered this magnificent organic/ vegan African black soap from Shea Island. I love it because it is in such a raw form and the ingredients are shea butter, palm oil and other plant based ingredients.
What's even better is they also disclose where the shea butter is from, and a lot of products we consume we have know idea if the ingredients are lab originated or raw ingredients.
The African black soap is known to have so many benefits and it not only moisturises the skin, but it's also good for fading blemishes, repairs damaged skin,has antibacterial properties, contains natural source of Vitamin A & E. If you suffer from acne, you may also wan't to try out the African Black Soap.
So enough talking & more action. Visit Shea Island to try their products containing natural ingredients. Remember less is more.. meaning, don't waste your money on expensive products without researching the ingredients when the answer is in your doorstep.
If you recall in my last skincare blog I mentioned if you find a product that works you better stick to it.
Well this month, I found my favourite go to especially for this season. Not only is it friendly packaging but the scent is just so fresh and makes you feel clean & rejuvenated.
I am pleased to have tried out the YesTo cucumber sleep mask this autumn season. The face mask is so ideal because as it starts to get cold, our radiators / heaters dry out our skin and what better what better way to avoid dry skin.
Don't make the terrible mistake I did by applying a whole satchet content on your face. Just apply enough for the night and wash your face the next day & it will leave your skin, soft, refreshed and you'll be ready for the day. Simple & easy :)
Another perfect go to if you're a workaholic like me is the eye kit. If you get dark circles due to l tiredness you will need this. Perfect to apply before a job interview / casting call, meeting ... last thing you want to do is attend a meeting looking unbothered.
Last but not least.. the face wipes.. these are what made me fall in love with YesTo cucumbers, they smell so delicious and fresh just like real cucumbers. After a tired day, just wipe of your make up with these, or maybe you've gone to the gym after work, perfect to have in your sports bag or hand bag.
I know I've mentioned how much I love the YesTo cucumber, but guess what !!' They have other scents of cucumber is not got you.
Okay, so I'm finally revealing my secret tips. Let me just say .. these are very simple steps that have worked for me, using non-expensive products.
So those are my tips, and as a bonus.. once you've found a product that works for you stick to it.
