Fight The Signs Of Ageing With These Tricks

For women, getting older is an issue. We all know that it is going to happen at some point, but we would also like to put it off for as long as possible. There is nothing wrong with a little bit of vanity, as long as it doesn’t take over your life. And, we are all vain, which is why the anti-ageing industry is such a profitable one.

To make life easier, the following methods are brilliant ways of fighting those pesky wrinkles and droopy skin.

Keep Hydrated
Okay, it is not the miracle cream that you are looking for, but water is about the best defense against ageing that you are likely to find. Also, miracle creams do not exist!

In one of my recent posts Everyday Skincare Products And Why We Should Be Using Them, I briefly mentioned my love for Frank Original Coffee Scrub and said it really deserved a post all on it’s own. So here it is! Now you may have seen Frank being mentioned a whole load on social media, primarily Instagram with pictures of all these bronzed models covered head to toe in what looks like coffee and some seriously impressive before and after shots of various people with reduced cellulite, scars and stretch marks.

There’s some sort of lotion or potion available for any skin concern or complaint we may have. But how do we know what’s right for us and our skin? Since working as a Makeup Artist, I’ve discovered the biggest confusion clients have is about what skin type they have, which means finding products to suit their skin type like finding a needle in a hay stack.

Why you should NEVER sleep in your makeup!

Recently in one of my late night ‘sucked into a black hole’ internet sessions, I stumbled upon this image of a woman who doesn’t remove her makeup for an entire month to find out the effects it will have on her skin. 

Now I’m sure we’re all aware that it is a bad idea to sleep in your makeup but what is it actually doing to our skin in both the short and long term? I decided to investigate the damage sleeping in our makeup has on our skin and here is what I found!
