MY TOP 5 ITEMS FOR GREAT SKINCARE ROUTINE THIS WINTER

With the arrival of winter it can suggest a few changes to our daily routines, that includes skincare apart from our wardrobe edit of course and here’s what you can do about it.

I often find that as our skin can be affected by the elements and fatigue we can take steps to improve its appearance with just making a few changes to our essential daily grooming.

There are some really great products to keep your skin refreshed, recharged and feeling great during the party season by prepping beforehand with my essential grooming hacks day to day.

I find it helps to start your morning routine with a refreshing face wash to give your skin that energising boost to beat fatigue with Clarins Paris One-Step-Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser that contains orange extracts is suitable for all skins types including sensitive skin too.

One particular area of the face that I love to mention is how best we improve the appearance of fatigue in the eye area which needs to be kept firm and looking youthful starts with hydration to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dark circles by using eye cream treatments. I’ve chosen Kiehls Eye Alert as it contains cucumber and vitamin E is ideal to reduce puffiness and give your eyes a refreshed energy boost any time of day and is on me the whole time from first thing early morning to when getting home before bed.

For when you arrive home just top up with eye gel patches and leave it to work it’s magic to hydrate, soften and calm the affected area which has cucumber extract and collagen for skin cell renewal. Just remember a good night’s rest is essential for skin renewal so we could all do with some beauty sleep from time to time.
Most recently as the days and nights get cooler the climate can make our skin feel dry at times so be sure to wrap up warm and have products at hand to use when necessary on the go.

In this instance, I like to carry a lip balm with me to prevent my lips from getting dry and chapped so they appear smooth. Some products by Sister & Co Skin Food you may find even come with sumptuous flavours such as wild mint, raw coconut, Lip tonic and Lemon Myrtle that gives a tingling sensation when applied to the lips.

With that said our hands too could do with some tender loving care with the exception of a body cream to stop them getting dry. It’s best just to apply some to hands before putting your winter warmers on. There’s a great body cream from Jo Malone London I’ve been trying out recently with an aromatic scent of mandarin and lime basil that’s uplifting and sensual even in the bleak midwinter it feels festive as it takes me back to my childhood of decorated mandarins with cloves and ribbons as presents.

Let these amazing products work their magic by improving your daily skincare routine with additional items to refresh your grooming kit this winter.

SUMMER SKINCARE ESSENTIALS: MY GROOMING STYLE EDIT FOR PARIS HAUTE COUTURE FASHION WEEK

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 73 views
SKIN PREPARATION FOR FASHION WEEK TO REFRESH YOUR GROOMING KIT

 

As Summer is already underway I’m back! This time I’ve got some exciting news to share with you all that I have a last minute invitation to attend Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week next week.

From personal experience of traveling to a new city can be very exciting as well as daunting so what to take and pack needs careful thought for those of us that follow a strict beauty and grooming regime.

Personally I quite like the idea of being pampered and taking some of my favourite things with me along for the journey so it makes life that little bit more easier being away from home which leaves me to dwell on fashion week.

When traveling to other cities you are in fact living out of a suitcase so I always look forward to trying new products during my trip especially if you manage to get sponsored by one of world’s leading beauty and grooming cosmetics companies Clarins Paris.

Allot of the time I find with cosmetics I like to use both Men’s and Women’s products as long as it does what it says on the tin to certain degree don’t you think. At times we all need to prep our skin so we can ensure we look our best with fashion week being no exception. Achieving flawless looking skin does not happen overnight but with the right products you can achieve your goal. Always set a bench mark of what you expect your skin to look like before and after.

Here’s what’s in my bag

Often whilst traveling your skin suffers from dehydration and looks very tired and unflattering but its helps to choose products that help lift, re-vitalise, cleanse and re-energises for a fresh appearance complexion.

As soon as you get to your hotel and unpack I enjoy getting out my travel size grooming products on the bathroom counter so everything looks organised and makes you feel more at home while your away traveling abroad.

Lucky for me this bag is my lifeline to survive fashion week in Paris as these grooming and beauty products happen to French too seems a coincidence that I’m in Paris. For the next 3 days it’s more than enough to last me the whole trip and a bit more.

In case you’re wondering which is my favourite item which has to be the One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with hints of citrus and micro-beads that penetrate deep into the skin works really well as a skin scrub to remove any dirt and blackheads. I just love the way it smells with an orange scent of summer is just fresh and so clean on the pores of my skin.

I heard the weather is going to be very warm in Paris so protecting your face from the sun is crucial for younger looking skin and Clarin’s has a product just for that a Super Restorative Day cream with SPF as soon as you step outside. Another favourite is the Clarins extra firming eye cream as some days your eyes need that feeling of being refreshed after a long day and night. Beauty sleep is the next best thing as skin needs to renew their cells and happens during your sleep apparently. On second thought’s during Fashion Week it’s hard to find rest breaks in between shows and events so any products that help you achieve your skins full potential the better.

Which is your favorite Clarins Paris product and please feel free to comment below this post so others can share feedback about these amazing products.
