Best Hand Wash and Cleansers

Clean hands are more important than you may realise. We learn about cleaning our hands as a way to avoid germs making us sick, but did you know that dirty hands could also be causing your bad skin? Today, try to pay attention to how many times you touch your face. We do it subconsciously and it’s relatively harmless, unless you struggle with breakouts and blackheads.

Everytime we touch our face we transfer oils, germs and bacteria from our fingers to our fragile skin. When you have large, open pores the nasties you deliver to your skin will sit in there and make themselves at home. Avoiding this outcome can be as simple as having clean hands. Don’t worry though, clean hands can now be an enjoyable beauty experience as well because now we have some delectably hand cleansers to brighten things up. Here are some of the ones I’m currently using.  Continue Reading

There are so many wonderful people out there who open up their homes at this time of year to their friends and family. You are good people, and for those of you whose guests haven’t arrived yet, they will probably be ringing your door bell any minute. I am not just talking about over night house guests, I am also talking about hosting meals, parties and other holiday festivities. When it comes to people coming over, there are some minor things you need to prepare for.

Today I am going to point out a few of those beauty basics, and in case you don’t have them on hand, they are items that can easily be picked up from your local supermarket.

 

Hand Sanitiser

Keeping germs to a minimum is essential. The more people in one place, the more germs there are. If you Continue Reading

Did you know that hand sanitisers are now available from places other than your local supermarket or pharmacy? No really, it isn’t just Dettol or Purell cornering the market now. Big brands have realised there is a little OCD in all of us and have created up-market versions. Until recently I had NO IDEA.

First one I found out about was Aesop through a review on Makeup Mole. At the time I loved the idea of it but thought it was really odd for a fancy skincare brand like Aesop to do such a thing. Last month I found out that Jurlique were also releasing one and I was left thinking ‘How crazy are these Australian skincare brands?’. ‘Will anyone buy fancy hand sanitised?’ After pondering for a bit I remembered that OPI have had their Swiss Hand Guard antiseptic gel around for god knows how long.

The above realisations lead to a light bulb moment, and DING, we have a blog post. I finally found some time (and some space on my credit card) to head to Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
