Happy New Month guys!!
May this month bring blessings and joy in every area of our lives. I asked you guys for suggestions on a new blog post and the most popular was beauty tips for the summer. I decided to do a skin care routine as a beauty tip.
When you get your skin care routine right, over time you will start to notice your skin feels softer and smoother. You will also notice a radiant glow and achieve a more refreshed appearance. I have tried different skin care products before but there is something different about LUSH products. I love that it is homemade and fresh , for those of you who like DIY products, this means you can make some of these products yourself!
*The pictures above were taken the first time I went to the LUSH store on Grafton Street ( based in Ireland). That same day, I went home with some samples to try them out. This gave me time to choose the right product for my skin.
Magnaminty Facial Mask– This mask contains peppermint oil which leaves tingly minty feeling on your skin which is great as it promotes blood cell stimulation underneath the skin. The mask also contains honey making it to be thick in consistency. Honey is also great as an anti-bacterial property. On a plus side, the mask does not dry or harden my skin because of the honey present in it.
Movis Facial Soap– This soap is made with wholemeal bread with an extra coconut and sunflower oil which leaves the skin feeling soft. It also contains wheatgerm oil which is great to keep the skin moisturised and organic cocoa butter that softens the skin.
Breathe of Fresh Air– This toner water contains a rose, a mineral-rich carrageenan seaweed extract which all contributes to a balanced skin tone. You only need a small amount of this product, it is the final step of my skin care routine. Once I apply the Magnaminty Facial Mask and leave it on for 10 minutes (I only do this once a week), wash my face with the Movis Facial Soap-(everyday), I then get my cotton pad and apply the toner. It literally gives me the most refreshing feeling.
Fun Fact* The pH of tap water is bad for your skin, it is advisable to use a toner after you wash your face.
This brings me to the end of today’s post guys. Developing a healthy and consistent skin care routine is not easy, especially if you have a busy lifestyle that requires you to get up early and come back home late. But the benefits are great which makes it all worthwhile. For those of you who already have a skin care routine, let me know what products you use.
