Industry secrets

  • How to remove nail polish without remover

If you find yourself in that annoying situation with chipped polish and no remover, apply a clear top coat to the nail and remove it promptly while it is still wet with a cotton disk. This should remove the coat of colour underneath, repeat the process if needed!

  • Treating Ingrowing hairs

Apply witch hazel to help reducing swelling and redness, then coax the Ingrowing hair with tweezers do not pull it out! Give it time to grow correctly or you will only make the hair re grow deeper. Use a product to reduce the swelling, Rose and lavender work wonders in calming skin-inflammation. And ensure you exfoliate the area regularly!

From your razor to make up brush after a couple of uses they become breeding grounds for bacteria, which can course brake-outs, eczema and many other skin conditions. So ensure you give them a regular clean. There is no need to go buying expensive brush cleaner, water and which hazel or even a little shampoo and conditioner will do the job.

  • Keep it current

Our skin craves different things depending on the time of the year, so keep up to the season. In winter add more moisturising creams and lip balms to your routine and in summer ensure you are using lots of SPF and body butter or after sun – Be careful when choosing your sun cream there are natural ones out there chemical-free sunscreen also reduce the irritating effects of prickly heat. Avoid anything with paraben in it!

  • Facial brake-outs

With your facial skin more is not always better, If you have blemishes or a brake outs, give you face a break and use a product to cleanse and moisturize the dry areas, just stick to what you usually use but don’t start using 4 or 5 different products and changing everything in one go, hoping that they will do the trick! You will only stress out your skin and sebaceous glands unbalancing your oil levels and sending more oil to the surface to replace the oil that you have stripped away with all the different products, Its a vicious circle I’m afraid. So as long as you are in a good facial routine trust your products and stick with it! Don’t start reaching for anything you can find in the hope of a quick fix you will only prolong the brake out!
