Acne is one of the commonest skin disorders which affects nearly 80% of the population at some point in time. Choosing the right products with effective ingredients is vital otherwise you may inadvertently be making the problem worse.
A lot of the time we buy skin products based on the smell, price, packaging or just because it is a certain brand. I know I have been guilty of doing this several times in the past and I'm sure many of you can relate.
Before making a decision that affects your appearance it is important to do your research and ensure the procedure is right for you. Permanent makeup has many benefits and it is a fantastic way of defining and enhancing your physical features but there is little room for mistakes.
As you can imagine, whilst this is all well and good for the ageing process of my skin, its somewhat damaging for my bank account! Which is why I've devised a list of the beauty products worth forking out for this summer, so here goes;
The scrub is designed to be rubbed on in the shower, so I hopped in and tore open the package. Mad props to whoever Frank is, because while the gritty mixture looked like a wet glop of sand, it smelled like the most perfect mix of just-ground beans from your favorite coffeeshop on Leather Lane.

Ski season in Europe kicks off in December and runs right through until the end of April. People often think summer holidays are when our skin needs the most protection, but winter breaks can be just as damaging due to the glare from the piste, as well as dehydration and chapped lips to contend with.
I'm not saying that everyone should give up their tan, if it's fake, safe and makes you happy then by all means, carry on. The same could be said about things like make-up and hair colour, as long as we explain to our young ones that it's all about creativity and having fun rather than it being a necessity to look good in society, why not. But as influencers to younger people I do feel we should be conscious of our actions.
The warmer weather is here and the summer holidays are just around the corner, so now is the perfect opportunity to educate the next generation about sun safety. Let's empower our kids so that they can have fun in the sun without the worry of damaging their delicate skin.
The summer festival season is upon us, with an estimated 14 million adults descending on fields and parks across the UK to enjoy some form of live music. However, being outdoors all day means that staying safe in the sun should also be in tune for festival goers.
