What’s one thing when it comes to skincare you wish other people were more aware of?
I think some people have forgotten that remember that skincare is meant to be fun.
I’d love for this whole idea of a dreaded routine to disappear and for people to see it as 5 minutes of ‘you’ time in the day. It doesn’t need to be complicated; it doesn’t need to be a 10-step routine that you can’t be stuffed with. It just needs to make you feel better.
I also don’t think that, we need to remember that you don’t need to be a millionaire to have good skin. Sure, there are a million brands out there with price tags that may seem unachievable and can make you feel bad about your budget. But don’t disregard all the incredible brands that may also meet your budget and will do exactly what you want them to do
I hope people always remember that That SPF is your BFF. If anyone tells you otherwise, they’re trying to ruin your skin.
I also think a lot of brands have drilled the powers of an oil in being hydrating, but I think it’s important to remember that an oil will offer temporary relief and help seal everything in, but we shouldn’t forget the hyaluronic acid because that’s what works on the long-term hydration feeling.
And lastly- always ask questions and stay skin informed. If you think you need something, don’t let the store counter tell you otherwise because chances are you actually know enough about skincare to make that judgment yourself. Be confident
What do you look for in a moisturiser?
Quite a lot to be quite honest with you. Mainly because there’s so many options, products, brands, variations etc. So, a product really has to sell itself to me, otherwise, bye felicia, I’m applying something else.
To fall into this ‘I love’ category, I need it to pack a punch- so I ask myself, is this merely hydrating, or does it do more than just your traditional moisturiser? How does it feel? Is it irritating? Does it sit well? Does it smell? does it look too matte/oily? All the big questions!
