Here I am, a week into my post-surgery-recovery. First semi-painless day. A perfect time to binge-write a few posts.
I have (another) confession to make. I sometimes don’t follow my own advice when it comes to skincare.
Here are some of my most common skincare sins.
It’s officially Summer today, the sun is out, which means it’s time for my list of favourite SPFs.
Disclaimer: I wear SPF 365 days a year, I prefer mineral sunscreens (for their stability, the fact they physically protect your skin and because I have a bad history with Octocrylene, which is not even a proper sunscreen but a stabiliser).
The days of mineral sunscreens being white are gone – those heavy, un-spreadable formulations with a “looking-like-a-ghost” finish – they’re a thing of the past. However, mineral sunscreens aren’t just a, well, sunscreen! The majority of them are packed with loads of hydrating ingredients, high quality oils and other goodies and can be easily be doubled up as a daily moisturise too.
I can get overly excited over skincare launches (which shows in my collections I am trying to use and which also resulted in the “3-out-1-in” rule by my fiancé).
I love Dermalogica! Some of their products in the top ten of my staples (Daily resurfacer, daily microfoliant, Skinperfect primer with SPF and a few products from their professional range). Their SPFs are also really good. I haven’t had any full size so far, but I’ve tried samples for almost all of them.
