How do you know if you are getting best results from your skincare ?
Skincare can be confusing and overwhelming with so many different products, ingredients and bold promises.
Generally speaking it takes around 28 days for skin cells to turn over, which means that most skincare products require at least one month of use before you will see and experience results.
Therefore when you receive a tester sample or a sachet that only last for 1 or 2 times application, don’t give up, since during this time you can just appreciate the scent and texture of a skincare product and how it feels once applying it onto your skin.
Why Tomatoes are beneficial for skincare
Have you ever thought or considered tomatoes for your skincare? Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and rich in beta-carotene including potassium and vitamin C, lycopene, therefore eating tomatoes reduce the amount of cell damaging free-radicals in the body and will give you youthful skin. Tomatoes transforms the dullest of skins and restores glow to the skin and its a popular ingredient for problematic skin conditions.
What is skin texture?
This is the condition of your skin appearance that can look dry, uneven or dull with blemishes and may be accompanied by enlarged pores, loss of collagen from ageing, sun damage, or scaly patches.
Why does texture appear on your skin?
The environment can play a key role in your skin texture - dirt, chemicals, pollution and sun exposure can strip the skin of its natural collagen and elasticity, causing it to appear dehydrated, dull or rough looking. Smoking can also damage collagen and elastin, which are fibrous components of skin that keep it firm and supple. Even a stressful lifestyle and fatigue can lead to visible ageing of your skin. Inappropriate skincare may change your skin’s texture and appearance.
Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and skin texture is the condition of the surface of your skin. Uneven skin texture is commonly a result of excess dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin and therefore it is very important to restore and maintain your skin confidence and keep your skin complexion to picture-perfect skin.

How to avoid skin irritation and acne from face masks
Face Masks are set to become mandatory in shops etc this Friday 24th July 2020
Everything indicates that we will not get rid of it for a while or perhaps longer than we think or even forever. No one knows!
It's the uncertainty of not knowing what will happen and wearing a mask is one of the most basic measures to prevent the number of infections by COVID-19 increasing to protect us and others.
Wearing a mask for long periods of time can cause skin damage but it's also important to wear your mask correctly in order to have maximum protection.
A mask has to fit well on to the face, especially on the nasal bridge to offer maximum protection but don't over tighten your mask since this can leave your skin with more irritation.
When wearing glasses make sure you place them over your mask correctly in order to avoid steaming up your view, which can be very annoying and unpleasant.
