❤ UPDATED ❤ Skincare Regime…

First off, what a time it has been & hope you’re all doing well.

I wanted to jump back on & talk about my skincare regime. This is something that I prioritise in my life & make sure that my health/wellbeing is also well-looked after.

Growing up, I’ve had difficult skin to look after; I have acne-prone skin, sensitivity, combination, dry, a little touch of eczema…pretty much anything & everything under the sun. I look back on my teenage years & think about how something like my skin, can have a huge affect on the way I live my life & how I go on with my day-to-day.

In my early high school days, I didn’t really think too much of skincare, I used to think it was for the older generation with wrinkle cream’s & sunblock protection, haha. Oh how I was wrong about that.

There have been countless times I’ve gone to the shops, many skin specialists, even scouring the internet to find the LATEST & greatest skincare products. Let me be honest here, I went through lots of trials&errors. Any product you tell me about, I would’ve 100% have tried that. Not even joking.

Over the last few months, I’ve been jotting down & keeping note to certain products that I’ve noticed that have helped improve my skin quality & have helped reduce the appearance of skin blemishes.

I thought it would be nice to show you guys what those products in particular are.

A quick note before I go on, it is hard to go out in the world with confidence when our skin isn’t looking its best, but remember you are Beautiful, strong & amazing, no matter what your skin type is :)
