Guest Post: Spring Skin Cleansing Guide

If your skin is completely dry and dehydrated – don’t worry! The cold winter months have almost come to an end, which means that slightly higher temperatures will definitely bring some great changes in your skincare routine. The good news is that you will be able to get your healthy and glowy skin back in no time – just check out our list of the most important to-dos. Enjoy!

1.     Eat Well
Balanced diet has always been the most important part of being healthy. Foods that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and E are particularly beneficial, as well as those stacked with vitamin C. It actually fights free radicals which damage cells and affect collagen production, which leads to fine lines. Smoothies that feature strawberries, raspberries, blueberries – or any other kinds of berries – are full of antioxidants that have multiple benefits to your skin.

2.     Cleanse
A cleanser that is appropriate to your skin type can be a real life saver for many reasons. First of all, the ingredients list needs to be good to go, because there are so many different substances that can make your skin feel even worse. Harsh soap can dry it out, whereas parabens and different fragrances can be very irritating. Have in mind that mild steam can help with clogged pores, since it will soften hardened oil in them, thus helping you get rid of it more efficiently.

3.     Exfoliate

Cold air in the winter greatly affects your epidermis, which makes your skin dry and dehydrated. Besides that, as we age, the process of regeneration slows down, which causes old skin cells to pile up on the surface. That, too, will make your skin look dull and rough, which can lead even to blemishes and acne. Proper exfoliation removes those dead cells and uncovers the new ones below, which will largely contribute to the healthy and radiant look. This step in your skincare routine will help the moisturiser penetrate deeper into your skin, making it even smoother.

4.     Moisturise
Low temperatures leave our skin dried out, which is why it needs to replenish all the moisture that it has lost. Moisturiser has a very important role here, simply because it is essential that your skin is hydrated after the winter. Choosing an organic face moisturiser is always a good idea, simply because it works perfectly for all skin types. With organic beauty products you can always be sure that all the toxic chemicals are excluded, which makes them appropriate even for the sensitive skin. Such a moisturiser will nourish your skin and make it look luminous.

5.     Don’t Forget the SPF
Even though the spring sun doesn’t seem that strong – it is much more harmful than you are actually aware of. During the cold winter months your skin was not used to being exposed to the sun, which is why your epidermis is much more sensitive to its effects in the spring. Sunscreen is absolutely inevitable, especially for people with fair skin complexion. Just slather on your favourite sunscreen lotion the next time you are out, and you are good to go!

Now when the end of winter is finally approaching, it is high time you changed your skincare routine and made it more appropriate for the different weather.  Just have in mind that your skin will need additional care in the next period, and everything will be just fine. This is exactly why a wide range of different creams, face masks and scrubs were invented – get pampered and give your skin the best you have got!

Michael Kors Selma Mini

For my birthday i received a gorgeous Michael Kors Selma Mini from my parents and i LOVE it! 
The colour was chosen by my mom and she did pretty well in choosing as i don't think i would have even considered it normally, but it goes with pretty much everything! The detailing is so intricate and it is literally flawless, the stitching, lining, letter placement - everything! 

The only downside to having this bag is that my MK purse doesn't fit at all, so i may just have to go and buy the smaller coin purse for use with this bag

Ill stop talking now and show you the bag already,

Trend Of The Week: Winter Boots

As i am sure you all know by now, Shoes are pretty much my hobby (along with blogging) so when i can combine the two, its a win win situation.

2 weeks ago i celebrated my birthday and received a cute pair of Ugg heeled booties, but they were sadly too small and nowhere had a larger size :(

Soo, they were returned and swapped for another style, this time some by Timberland.

Now, if you are like me you will have previously associated Timberland with the large, chunky, worker-style boots they made their name with, but these are something different.

Still made of the same durable material and soled with the solid, weatherproof rubber they hold the characteristics of their flat companion, but they are streamlined, feminine and high-heeled!!

They also come in the classic brown, timberland colours.

Hands up if yo are a shoeaholic, because i know i am for sure.

If you are just like me and can not resist a new pair of shoes, then you may love this little gem i came across a couple of months ago.

Shoeaholics is a website focused upon designer shoes at a discount price, you may of heard more of its sister site

I was browsing the site last week and came across a gorgeous pair of Miss KG shoes which i just had to have!
I am sure many of you have not heard of Miss KG, but it is a line of shoes created by the genius that is Kurt Geiger and they do not disappoint.

You have to agree how cute they are, right?
And a steal at 1/3 of the original price!

Trend Of The Week: Boohoo Khaki Two-Piece

A few weeks ago i was browsing online and came across this amazing set on Boohoo and i tried to convince myself that i did not need it, butttt i bought it anyways.

I have NEVER worn anything like this before and i have profusely avoided wearing trousers that are not of the skinny kind. 

This set has completely changed my mind on wide leg, palazzo pants!

Comfortable, well fitting and a great material this set is everything i could have hoped for, hope you think it looks as great as i do.

It also comes in a range of colours, so there is sure to be one for you!!
