Bad Beauty Habits I’m Guilty Of

While I’m if I must say so great at remembering each day to apply SPF, deodorant, eat my greens, fruit, berries, take my vitamins and avoid processed sugar (biscuits happen every now and then), not to go against my principles of products being cruelty free or containing nasty ingredients there are some beauty habits I’m guilty of. I thought it’ll be fun to share these bad habits. So without further ado…

Most clay masks recommended wash off time is 10-15 minutes, 20 minutes max otherwise they can actually start to dry out skin causing more problems than before by upsetting skin’s pH levels. But I can leave them on for Continue reading “Bad Beauty Habits I’m Guilty Of”

As tomorrow’s officially a start to a New Year, 2019 I thought it’d fun to share beauty tips, tricks and don’ts I discovered this year. Some I’ve known for years and got given a lesson in this year. Others have have been happy discoveries cancelling out the those lessons.

To listen to my inner voice reordering products aka when stock piling. Don’t stock pile products! So many times I’ve gone to reorder and a little voice has gone NO! Me being me I ignore it only for when I receive it add to the stockpile because you know, I might run out before another arrives or it’s out of stock and I run out. Usually a few weeks Continue reading “Beauty Do’s and Don’ts I’ve Learnt In 2018”
