Underneath it all

I thought i would share my beauty regime with my lovely readers today. I'll start with skincare for this post. There are no miracles and EVERYONE gets acne at some point or another. I usually have clear skin but when that dreaded 'time of the month' hits, they always come out to play! Here are some of my tips and coping strategies:
Ok this is a great product! It protects and repairs the skin from daily stresses of pollution and sun damage and is great for preventing severe scarring from acne if used as soon as they appear. I didn't actually buy this one, i shamelessly collected sample bottles from department stores, lol!

I think this is gentle enough for sensitive skin and keeps the skin's natural moisture balance. According to the product description, the skin is purified and dirt is removed while the skin’s own lipids are respected and moisturisers help prevent skin dehydration.
I think it does a pretty good job.

I have to change cleansers when summer comes along or i find myself in a hot country. The heat gives me really oily skin so i use Neutrogena Deep clean for normal to oily skin. It really dries out the skin so i would not recommend it for sensitive skin.


I always use a toner after cleansing, it gets all the excess residue from make-up and cleansing products off your face. It is also a good idea to splash some water on your face if you use cleansers that don't require water or else the product stays on your face and that's not a good thing.


Quick, easy and convenient but not the best as your only daily cleansing regime. It's great for being on the move and i usually have it in my handbag when i travel.


I struggled for years to find a moisturiser that wouldn't irritate my skin and now i use SIMPLE. It's a brand that specialises in skincare for sensitive skin. FYI - Beauty experts suggest that you always moisturise no matter what skin type you have. So if you assume that you don't need to use a moisturiser because you have oily skin, please do! Not using moisturiser will prompt your skin to panic and start producing even more oil. There are lots of oil control moisturisers on the market, i suggest you try those out.
I'll do another post on make-up at a later stage.
