Posts in The Beautiful People

It has been quite a while (ok 6 months to the day. Gee time flies!) since I last did a ‘The Beautiful People’ post. Ok, so the last one was the first one but I have to say so many of those gorgeous people in my life are shy. Or they just don’t want to share their secrets. Hrmmm, I wonder now.

Luckily one lovely lady, who is not only extremely nice but also stunning, was willing to share with us her beauty life. Amy works for Professional Beauty so she has a fair amount of knowledge under that long flowing hair. I am taking notes from this well manicured, mid-twenties lass ….

Q: What do you do to look after your skin? What products do you use?

A: My skin is a major problem for me. I’ve had eczema ever since I was a small child. As a result of this I also have very sensitive skin. After years of trying many different products, I’ve adopted the philosophy that ‘less is more’. I always use gentle products that provide my skin with much-needed moisture yet won’t clog pores.

At the moment I love Dr Spiller products. I’m currently using their Cucumber Cleanser, Cucumber Toner and Propilis Day Cream, which contains royal jelly and propolis to heal, brighten and balance the skin.

Q: How old were you when you started to wear make-up?

A: Ha! Well I grew up with very strict European parents. My Dad used to Continue Reading

Most of us, if not all of us, would have at least one friend/co-worker/associate that we think are just so stunning you want to strap them to a chair and interrogate until you know all their beauty secrets. Ok maybe interrogation is taking it a bit far, but the point is that they are naturally gorgeous and you want in! In my case, I know lots of those people. Of course all of my friends are beautiful in their own ways and I love them to bits, 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
