Self Love - Skin Care.


This is going to be a long one, so grab a drink and read up.
Disclaimer: I have used a few products on a trial and error basis and found these to work well with my skin combination.
Besides doing all this thrice a week, I cleanse, tone and mosturise my skin twice a day to get rid of all the everyday toxins. What might work for me, might not work for you since every person’s skin and hair is different. Please do a patch test first before using the products properly. Most of the products are cruelty free which works in plus points for me since I am trying to move to a more organic and cruelty free lifestyle.

If you really need to enjoy this life, then the first rule of it is to love yourself. If you appreciate your own self then all the trouble that other people come up with, literally disappears itself.


The one thing that you should have a firm belief on, is that you are beautiful. No matter what other people say or judge, you know that you’re top class. It is also important to look after yourself. And this is where skincare comes in. 

So I am soon going to transition in my 30’s and it is so so important to look after your skin. I have been following a skin care routine since the past few months and have noticed a considerable difference in the quality and the freshness in my skin.

I make sure that I follow this regime at least three times a week not only to improve and maintain my skin and hair but also to relax and have a good me time!

Face:

The first thing that I do is, wash my face with the Soap & Glory Vitamin C face wash. Now, I have been using this for the past six months and it has done wonders to my skin. I actually feel like that I have washed my face and it gives me such a cool boost and wakes me up.

The next step is The Body Shop Drops of Light liquid peel. Now I have just very recently tried this product and I am loving it. I was debating over it, whether to buy It or not because of so many mixed reviews but I am glad that I made the plunge. You just need a very small amount and rub it all over your face and neck and as you rub it in circular motions, the dead skin starts peeling. I wipe it off with a flannel cloth to remove all the residue.

After this, I use one of The Body Shop masks. These Expert Facial Masks are quiet the rage. I bought the Himalayan Charcoal mask because of the hype and I think I have never loved a mask as much as I love this. So I invested in other masks from the range and can’t wait to buy more from the range. They make your skin glow, detox it from all the toxins and give your skin such a rejuvenate glow to it. After the Charcoal mask, I personally love the Ethiopian Honey Mask. My skin legit glows after this mask.

While I have my mask on, I scrub my lips with the Lush Cosmetics Santa Baby lip scrub and buff my nails out. After I am done with the mask, I use Sephora’s Charcoal nose strips (I use this every 15 days).  

After getting done with the entire face routine, I use the Balance Me facial oil to mosturise. I got this in a recent subscription box and it had made my skin feel so good. Before that I used to use The Body Shop skin defence to mosturise my skin. Because I used the liquid peel on my skin, it’s important that I use SPF on my skin.

Hair:

After getting my xtenso done, my hair although still healthy, has been falling out a lot. I have been using the Vatika hair oil since like forever. And never has any oil suited my hair this much. It has a blend of olive, almond and cactus oil which works a treat.

Other than that, I got the Jamaican Black Castor Oil and been using since a few days and the results are slow but really liking it. I have been using it for my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes. Can’t wait to see the full results.

After shampooing my hair, I usually skip using conditioner since it makes my hair fall out a lot. So I have been using Argan oil and Kevin Murphy's leave in serum mixed together, It makes my hair feel so soft and bouncy and gives it that extra shine.

Body:

Ever since I gave birth, coffee as a scrub has become my best friend! It brings back elasticity to the body and reduces stretch marks. I was sent the Naturelle Coffee scrub last month and I love using it. You can mix it with coconut oil for extra moisturisation for your skin. Its 100% natural which is great for the overall texture of your skin.


After the scrubbing, I like to take a quick bath with one of Lush’s bath bombs or bubble bars. I can not go back to using anyother bath bomb than Lush’s own. Best thing ever. The bath is my only me time during the week and I absolutely love it. I don't do the candle and drink shenanigans while taking a bath but I do love reading a good book. Best stress buster ever.

It is so important to look after yourself, so that you age better and not just radiate positivity from the inside, but also from the outside. Self love does not only include taking care of your skin but also living healthy. Next week on the blog, I will be talking about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So stay tuned :)
