If, like me, your skin often feels tight and dehydrated then this great and simple to make homemade mask is definitely for you. The basic ingredient is banana powder which is an absolute must in my bathroom. I love this powder so much and I use it all the time!
In this post I am going to go through the steps to make this amazing moisturizing and purifying mask which is perfect for all skin types and will help your skin feel wonderfully soft, smooth and supple.
I shared one of my favourite DIY recipes for dry and fine hair on my Instagram Stories a few weeks ago. It had such positive feedback I thought I should share it on my blog for anyone who missed it or doesn’t follow me Instagram.
As I can personally attest, Dry and fine hair is a chore to maintain. It requires special attention and without regular care can end up brittle, dull and dehydrated. It also has a tendency to get tangled very easily.
As a great remedy to save your mane there is nothing better than a good homemade hair mask. Especially one made from a mixture of nourishing carrier oils and ingredients with moisturizing properties.
Here is a simple recipe to revive your dry hair.
Once again it seems like it’s time for my group therapy with you guys and so I have another admission I feel I need to make…… I am a toner addict. I have some in the fridge, in my bag, in the bathroom, in my bedroom, at my desk…….there are bottles everywhere! I am really not sure if I could make it through the day without any now! Toner is amazing due to the fact that it helps your skin absorb any product that you apply after using it as well as just generally improving skin texture and tightening pores. I use a toner every single day and it is an essential part of my skincare routine! Some I use to exfoliate, others to hydrate and some simply to help boost my skin’s radiance and refresh me during the hot days. I have found it particularly in demand this summer as it’s been so hot outside I have been relying on a lot of hydrating/refreshing toner (please don’t mistake this for me complaining about the weather though as I’m so happy that for once we have a very sunny summer in London). Another reason I love Toners so much is that they are one of the easiest skincare products to make for yourself and not fork out exorbitant amounts of cash on! You only need a few ingredients to make a really effective one! I use them after cleaning my face and any time of the day when I feel my skin a bit dehydrated. I also make sure I always have one to hand when I feel too hot in the tube and need a refreshment, think of it like your second bottle to always carry with you: one for drinking, one for spritzing!

It’s summertime and once again our yearly ritual of trying to squeeze every possible minute outside worshiping the sun begins! As always though annoying little things like work and responsibilities always seem to get in the way of perfecting our lovely tan and receiving our much needed boost of Vitamin D! However, as we are all pretty well aware by now after years of news reports and medical warnings, exposing the skin to the sun all day long can affect it really badly. It’s now just downright stupidity if anyones ignores these warnings or just simply forgets to protect themselves against dangerous UV rays by not wearing an SPF. I would also suggest to everyone that making sure they hydrate their skin really well after a day in the sun is another necessity. I personally always like to give my skin an extra moisture boost by preparing and applying my own face mask using natural ingredients that target my skins particular needs. I have 2 DIY recipes, both of which I have used repeatedly since summer started, that I absolutely love. They are really simple, fast face masks to make yet both are super efficient, antioxidant-rich and ultra-moisturizing. Hopefully you will see the same sorts of benefits I have by using them regularly through the summer months too. View Post
My boyfriend walked into the house the other day and let out a blood curdling scream. The first thing he faced upon opening the door was my face covered in a multi mask. All i can say is that this explains pretty perfectly how I looked, like some sort of monster from the deep lagoon. However it was all completely worth it (even the near loss of my boyfriend from cardiac arrest) for the results I saw on my skin! I had been noticing all the fuss online around multi masking and decided to try it but next time I think I should warn him when he is on his way back from a meeting! I really wanted to see how my skin would react and to see how well these combination of masks worked. I had never thought before of putting different masks on my face at the same time. Previously I had always rotated my face masks, one day doing a glowing mask and another day a hydrating etc…. but after seeing the amount of magazines that were talking about multi masking I really wanted to give it a try!
