We all know the struggle of packing before a long-awaited holiday! Beauty addicts like us have it tough – limiting ourselves not just in the number of outfits we pack in our suitcase, but also sifting through our skincare products and cosmetics and deciding which make the cut! When your everyday beauty routine uses dozens of products, you’ve got some difficult choices to make.
Here are the team’s top beauty tips for your next holiday…
Mother’s Day is a chance to pamper, spoil, and above all thank your mum for everything she’s ever done for you. Mums love beauty gifts: whether you’re helping them out by restocking their makeup supplies, or splashing out on luxury beauty products that your mum wouldn’t normally invest in!
If your mum loves her skincare products, there are loads of fab, indulgent moisturisers, hand creams and cleansers that will make perfect Mother’s Day gifts! Here are some of our favourites. Continue reading →
We’ve all done it. We’ve all stayed out for too long during Britain’s brief summer, or forgotten to reapply sunscreen because we were having too much fun at the beach. If you’re prone to burning rather than tanning, you’ll know how painful (and embarrassing) sunburn can be. You’re destined to spend weeks with itchy, peeling skin, and perhaps even months with a reddened complexion!
Although prevention is preferable to cure when it comes to sunburn, there are still some measures you can take to make sunburn a little more bearable – and perhaps even accelerate the healing process.
The summer holiday season is within touching distance. The getaway that you booked in the depths of winter is on the horizon, and you’re starting to get excited about a lazy week on the beach at your destination. When the time comes to pack your suitcase and head to the airport, you almost always face a predictable problem: running out of space in your suitcase or hand luggage.
We all envy vacationers who can make do with hand luggage for a weekly trip or pack their suitcase so efficiently that half of it is left free for souvenirs. Cutting down on clothes is perhaps the easiest way to find space in your suitcase, but reducing the size of your makeup bag can also help! If you struggle to decide which cosmetics and skincare products to take with you on holiday and want to pack more efficiently, here are our top tips: Continue reading →
Summer is almost upon us! No doubt your thoughts have turned to a long-planned summer holiday, lazy days at the beach or weekends spent sunbathing in the park. As the seasons change, the makeup and skincare products you use should change too, because different types of product are suited to different weather conditions.
If you need to stock up on beauty products for the summer months but don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a quick guide on how to prep your makeup bag for the summer months.
When we look in our cosmetic cabinets and browse through all of the cosmetics we’ve accrued over the years, we’ll probably spot a few indispensable items that scarcely leave our side, a couple of firm favourites that get a run-out at parties and on special occasions, and a whole host of items that are lucky to get a look-in once or twice a year. What we should see when we look in our cosmetic cabinets, however, are two entirely different sets of cosmetics: one for the summer months and another set entirely for use during the winter. We’re not talking about seasonal style trends here, either – we’re talking skincare. So why should you change your skincare routine as the winter moves into summer once more? Read on to find out.
Sweat. It appears everywhere: from your scalp to between yours toes, there’s no escaping it. Hot weather, as much as we all love it, poses both a health and beauty hazard to our skin and can leave us with breakouts – and running makeup besides. Thankfully, there are solutions to the sweaty syndrome, all of which come from thorough skincare steps and carefully chosen, sun-friendly cosmetics. Take a look at our bathroom to beach skincare steps and see how summer cosmetics can help you achieve a cooler and dryer summer:
