Guest Post | Why Night Cream Is an Essential Part of Your Skincare Routine

Hello!

Taking care of your skin is one of the best things you can do for yourself, and if you want to know how to do it properly, just keep on reading. Here are some useful tips on how to come up with an effective skincare routine that features one of the beneficial products on the market – a night cream. Enjoy!

The importance of a proper skincare routine

We can’t emphasise enough the importance of appropriate skincare routine. First of all, skin is your largest organ that can quickly absorb almost anything you apply to it, which is exactly why you should give your best to give it proper care. Of course, your skincare routine should be tailored particularly for your skin type, so make sure to determine it in the first place. Once that’s done, you should do a little research on the products appropriate for your skin. There are many specific formulas designed for different skin types, so be sure to look for one that suits your needs in the best possible way. From a day cream, which is essential throughout the day, to a night one that’s crucial during night – all these skincare products are really important if you want to take care of yourself, so don’t skip any of them!

What should my everyday skincare routine consist of?

The first step in any effective skincare routine is cleansing, so you need to get a gentle, water-soluble cleanser to remove excess oil, debris, dirt and makeup residue from your face. Just make sure that your cleanser doesn’t contain alcohol, since it can really dry out your skin. Toner comes next, and it is designed to calm your skin and make it much smoother. Besides that, it also contains some essential skin-replenishing ingredients that are much needed after cleansing. Moisturiser is another crucial product, because it keeps your skin hydrated and nourished all day long. Needless to say, a night cream is an absolute must, since your skin tends to lose essential moisture at night. That’s why you should help it restore hydration and absorb active ingredients. You should also incorporate a high-quality serum into your skincare routine if you haven’t already. This product will even out your skin tone and offer anti-ageing protection, which is definitely what you should look for!

Why should I use a night cream?

As already stated, night creams and serums are particularly beneficial because they contain a wide range of ingredients essential for proper nourishment. These are designed to improve your skin while you’re sleeping, which is why you shouldn’t skip them under any circumstances. Apart from moisturising and hydrating your skin, these also have a power of repairing damage caused by the sun’s rays, air pollution, free radicals, and even makeup. Their active ingredients are beyond beneficial, especially if you’re always on the go and don’t have much time to take proper care of your skin on a daily basis. Of course, a good night cream should be a legitimate part of your skincare routine once you reach 30, so make sure to get it as soon as possible!

How to pick an appropriate night cream?

Lightweight formulas such as gels and serums are perfect for oily skin, since they won’t make it feel sticky and greasy all day long. On the other hand, dry skin requires a bit thicker products that provide enough hydration and nourishment. Sensitive skin is particularly tricky, but you really don’t have to worry – organic beauty products are gaining momentum these days, and they’re great for all skin types, including sensitive! Of course, night creams are also very important when it comes to anti-ageing, so don’t skip them if the first fine lines have shown. As you age, your skin becomes much drier and less elastic, which results in dull skin and wrinkles, but don’t worry – you can slow that down by using an appropriate night cream!

As you can see, a proper night cream can really save your skin by nourishing it to the max and preventing wrinkles and fine lines. Just make sure to pick the proper one for your skin type, and you’re halfway there!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Blush Review

Hello!

A couple of months ago now I went on a little shopping trip to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet and while I was there I popped into the Make-up Outlet store!

I managed to pick up a few items but my main reason for going in was to find a new lipstick for work. Yes, I probably have a handful at home I could already use BUT I wanted to find a shade that would match my all time favourite Rimmel lipstick from the Kate Moss Nude range.

In the end I decided on Rose Blush from Rimmel's Moisture Renew range as it seemed like a nice pinky nude shade that I could wear in the day or to work. I've brought other shades from the Moisture Renew collection and I've been really impressed with their glossy and long-lasting formula. It's almost like you can't believe it's a high street brand!

Now I wouldn't say this is a perfect match for my favourite but for £2.99, it's still a great lipstick and I'm hardly going to moan!

DIY | My New Under The Stairs Cupboard

Hello!


It's been a while since I actually sat down and blogged and the main reason for that is because I've been bitten by the DIY bug! I've been so busy thinking of all the new and interesting things I can do to my house that I thought that maybe I should start writing about it all to share it with you guys!

My latest project was dealing with that awkward space under the stairs or as I call it, the "dumping ground". Back in the day it used to home our tumble dryer and fridge but since having my new kitchen fitted and therefore putting the appliances in there, this space has been empty.

After doing a bit of searching through Pinterest for inspiration, I came across the below picture and I knew I had to recreate it for my own house.

Now before I started this project I had looked into getting a professional in and have proper drawers etc fitted and they were asking for well over £1k! No thanks. My Pinterest alternative cost me under £100 with the majority of it being spent on this Ikea shelving unit and these Ikea wardrobe doors for the cupboard.

As you can see I'm decorating the rest of the hallway at the moment so I know it looks a bit crappy but cupboard-wise, I'm really happy! 

I'll leave a little link here back to the blog that helped me with the idea and a bit more of a "how to do".

Guest Post | Hair Hacks Every Woman Should Know!

Hello!

Everyone’s looking for simple ways to make their hair look and feel better. With that in mind, try these handy hair hacks to learn everything from how to bring body to your hair and how to keep it looking shiny and smooth. Know your products, hair tools and accessories well and you will have a good hair day every day! Combine these simple hair hacks with other styling tips like how to straighten hair – which you can find here

Here’s everything you need to know to give your hair that everlasting stroke-worthy look.

Instant shine is just one brush away: Boar bristle brushes lift your scalp’s natural oils from your roots and redistribute them along the length of your strands. This helps your hair look cleaner, shinier and smoother. For thick hair, go for a bristle and nylon brush to detangle your mane too.

Curls – the fast way: Want curls, but don’t have much time? Try this easy hair hack: make a ponytail on top of your head. Divide your hair into two sections. Curl each one. Bend forward to pull out the hairband, so your hair is over your face. Being careful of your eyes, apply hairspray. Then flip your hair back for instant curls!

The one accessory you need for a full ponytail: Bring body to your ponytail with a butterfly clip hidden inside. Divide your ponytail in half, holding the upper part against your head. Place the clip in the middle of your ponytail, with the grips on either side. Backcomb the top half of your ponytail, apply hairspray and then smooth down.

The easy route to sleek hair: If you want to know how to straighten hair with a sleek finish, start by cold rinsing after washing to lock in precious moisture. Use a hairdryer with a narrow nozzle and a round brush to smooth your hair from roots to ends, section by section. And never skip the application of heat protection spray before styling!
