I think wearing too much make-up, and cloggy greasy make-up is a big factor in causing breakouts and acne. Picking foundations and make-up that are non-comedogenic and oil free are very important to me. If make-up is non-comedogenic it means that it will not block your pores, and therefore cannot cause the formation of blackheads…
Sorry it’s another Clinique post.. I am a little obsessed! As its getting warmer I needed to invest in a sun cream which wasn’t too oily or greasy or cause problems on my skin.
There are 2 versions of this, an SPF 25 and a SPF 40. I purchased the 25, but maybe for holidays in hotter countries it would be worth getting the SPF 40. What I was unaware of until I purchased this was that it actually is tinted! And this made me love it even more…
Since as its summer now and it’s getting much hotter and many of you will be going on holidays, I think it’s really important to know how to care for your skin in hot weather. The beautiful sea above I took from my holiday in Zante last year! In the next few days I’m going to post about my favourite summer beauty products, that I love in the summer months! But for now here are some important rules to stick by:
1. Stay Hydrated
It’s so important during the summer months that you stay hydrated, drinking plenty of water is necessary to have clear, young, healthy looking skin. If your dehydrated your skin will be drier. You should aim to drink 8 glasses of water every day. Don’t skip the moisturiser just because your drinking lots of water, its important to do both…
Recently I was introduced to bare minerals, I’d never really heard much about it before but now I wouldn’t go anywhere without it! It is amazing for anyone with skin issues as it is not bad for your skin in anyway – so you don’t have to feel guilty about wearing it! I love it because it’s really light weight but also provides amazing coverage. I personally use the fairly light original foundation (link to purchase available below) which gives me flawless coverage I need but also doesn’t cause further breakouts! When I started roaccutane I knew my skin would become severely dry and I didn’t know if this powder foundation would be a problem however it’s not! Even though my skin is dry this foundation still works flawlessly – except on the rare occasion when my skin is having a very bad day.
On my birthday recently I went to go buy some more and decided to buy the complexion pack instead, this included the original foundation and matte foundation (in smaller sizes), a bronzer, primer and a brush – and something else? I can happily say that I am pleased with these other products too. The primer allows smoother make up applications and helps soften blemishes and dry skin. The bronzer also gives a very nice glow, and the brush helps for flawless application.
I am still yet to try the matte foundation as my skin is dry at this current time rather than oily I don’t see it necessary – but anyone who has tried and has any opinions please let me know!
so yeah bare minerals is one of my top skincare brands and there are still so many products of theirs I aim to try and will eventually post, the best thing is I know that they will not cause any problems to my easily aggravated skin! – give it a try!
