With a routine that contains BHAs or AHAs; I ensure that I use a very good sunscreen with spf 50 plus to prevent sunburn, redness and sensitivity. You cannot use this types of acid treatments without a generous application of sunscreen. You might turn purple, red, pink and black; possibly green 馃槕lol! Please beware. It may not be suitable for sensitive skin. I always moisturise well with any thing that has AHAs/BHAs. It is best to find what works for you. Listen to your skin and gradually employ a good routine My Routine: Morning and Night 1. cleanse with @bra@bra@bra@bra@@bravuralondon purifying gel cleanser for oily/problem skin 2. Tone on a cotton wool pad with @bravuralondon detoxifying eucalyptus toner 3. Apply hyaluronic acid serum from @bravuralondon and sometimes alternate with @esteelauder advanced night serum and pore minimiser at daytime. 4. Apply holy grail collagen moisturising cream (gentle firm strokes upward) from @bravuralondon 5. I apply my DIY antiaging serum made with rosehip oil, almond oil, frankincense and carrot seed oil (morning and night) 6. I apply a generous amount of @neutrogena ultra sheer dry block spf 50 sunscreen (daytime only) ***I am yet to find a good eye cream. I would love a recommendation please. I presently use the hyaluronic acid serum as an eye cream Night Routine (2 - 3 times a week) 2% salicylic solution and 15% gylcolic acid night treatment from @bravuralondon. I have 3 brands I use for 2% solution @ bravuralondon @deciem the ordinary and @paulaschoice. They are all equally good to my skin. Then follow with my serums and moisturiser I do a little dance when I am strict to this regimen because the results are tremendous. My fine lines vanishes, skin feels smoother, pores are refined not looking sloppy or down south. Generally, I feel good. #skincare #instabeauty #beautycommunity #skincarecommunity #healthandbeauty #beautyskin #ecofriendly #skincarelover #skincareblogger #beautyblogger #beautifulskin #healthyliving #cosmetics #aha #diybeauty #ski#skincareregime> #exf#exfoliate #bha #bbloggers #bathandbody #slave2beauty #hudabeauty #vitaminc #vitamincrosehip #exfoliation #exfoliate #antiaging #instaskincare #skincareregime #pores

Here is a very yummy body scrub made from: Oatmeal Apricot kernel Cinnamon *** Cane Sugar Brown Sugar Coconut oil Shea butter Vitamin E Vanilla Extract and Honey My favourite Winter' Body Scrub Apricot kernel is invigorating Oatmeal is soothing, healing, moisturising and suitable for dry sensitive skin conditions. I just love everything oats. I eat it everyday馃榾, be it day and/or night. Sugar to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells Cinnamon to spice things up and boost circulation; anti-inflammatory; reduces body acne Coconut oil and Shea butter to prevent dry skin and deeply moisturise. Honey - leaves skin feeling smooth, well hydrated and helps retain moisture Vanilla - for scent ; Vitamin E for low key preservation and other obvious benefits Cinnamon*** might not be suitable for sensitive skin. I am very cautious with this ingredient. I use a very tiny bit with no problems at all. This is my major defense against dry scaly winter skin and an everyday moisturiser. I apply this generously on skin once a week sometimes twice a week. #instabeauty #beautycommunity #skincarecommunity #healthandbeauty #beautyskin #ecofriendly #naturalingredients #sugarscrub #skincareblogger #beautyblogger #naturalbeauty #han#handmadesoap #cosmetics #coffeescrub #diybeauty #skincareregimen #naturalskincareproducts #essentialoils #bbloggers #bathandbody #slave2beauty #hudabeauty #wrinkles #rosehipoil #handmadesoap #antiaging #almondoil #organicskincare #clay #soapmaking

Vitamin C Series Why you need a dose and topical use everyday Citrus Fruits聽[Oranges, Lemons, Grapefruits]:聽Citrus fruits contains high levels of Vitamin C [otherwise known as Ascorbic Acid]聽that is instrumental in keeping your skin healthy and youthful. Vitamin C [often found in most anti aging serums and treatments] is a water soluble vitamin which means it cannot be stored by the body. This is why it's important to consume at least a few servings of Vitamin C daily. The Vitamin C found in Citrus fruits acts a powerful antioxidant that aggressively fights free radicals while keeping your skin smooth and firm. Other sources of vitamin c - berries, kiwi, guava, green vegetables Tip: Did you know that Guava has the highest Vitamin C content? Guava has higher vitamin c content than berries and all citrus fruits. Ok! Try this. Get a guava fruit, rub a slice on your face even around your eye area. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse off! This shrinks pores, reduces face and eye wrinkles and instantly firms skin. Do this 2x a week Then apply cold pressed rosehip oil on face and body. 馃槈馃槝 #skincare #instabeauty #beautycommunity #skincarecommunity #healthandbeauty #beautyskin #ecofriendly #naturalingredients #blueberry #skincareblogger #beautyblogger #naturalbeauty #healthyliving #cosmetics #lemons #diybeauty #skincareregimen #naturalskincareproducts #serum #bbloggers #bathandbody #slave2beauty #hudabeauty #vitaminc #vitamincrosehip #berries #citrus #fruit #organicskincare #skincareobsession
