Choosing good quality bath salts makes a big difference to your bathing experience. My favourite salts are Himalayan and Epsom salts. They are packed with minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium and help the body to relax and recover from aches and pains. You can also use the salts as skin scrubs on the body when you mix them with vegetable oils. In this case make sure to choose fine grit salts. Big grits are perfect for bathing as they take longer to melt.
In this post I am sharing my top tips on blonde hair care and how to keep it looking healthy and shiny. Depending on how dark your natural hair is, the care may be more or less challenging. The bleach removes the colour from the hair and may make it dry and lifeless. If you go to a good hair dresser they should be able to bleach your hair safely. Your hair should still look healthy and lively.
When I was growing up and started using make up and skincare products, the availability of brands was nothing like it is today. I grew up in Finland and Lumene was one of first products in my beauty box. I remember the original packaging and bottles were dark blue and very simple. The variety was limited, but it was so cool to have Lumene products in your make up bag. It made you one of the cool kids. At the time the collection included all make ups and basic skincare products. It was always a brand I though was great quality and never had any problems as far as I can remember. In this Lumene review I will tell you about eye cream, make up remover and a hydrating mask.
Ageing is a blessing, even thought it has been portrayed like a curse in the modern media. We are petrified of signs of ageing and the eternal youth is the goal most are seeking. Historically women have been more concerned about their looks, but nowadays men are also facing pressures of looking good and youthful. Let’s face it, we all are under pressure to ageing beautifully.
Facial oils are amazing for skincare and as you probably know by now I love them. They are one of the best ways to inject moisture into the skin and are fab for preventing the fine ageing lines. I use them day and night on their own, mixed with serums or under moisturiser. They keep my skin look healthy and glowing even on the days when I am tired. Oils are natural, similar to our own oils in the skin and safe to use. They can balance the oil production in the skin and contrary to the usual belief are best for treating oily and combination skin, especially if you are suffering from spots. It often takes me a few weeks to write the product review as I always like to test the product at least a few weeks to give my honest opinion. This month I am testing Pure Bliss beauty oil by Skinirvana.
I’m all about using oils for skin care, firstly because they are amazing for any skin problems, especially for anti-ageing and for hydration. Secondly because they are all natural, pure plant materials and easily available. You can use the oils on their own or you can blend them to match your needs. Use lighter oils for oily skin and heavier oils for dry or dehydrated skin. You can also use them to make your own body oils and other products as well as treatment balms and body butters. I use oils every day and night alongside of moisturisers and serums. For me they have really worked well for preventing signs of ageing and I love that you can create different oils for different things and they make great little gifts as well.
