Does Your Skincare Routine Protect You From Digital Devices?

Murad City Skin Review

How often to you sit in front of a computer or another digital device such as your mobile? If I’m honest I have my phone pretty much glued to my hand. I am one of those people walking down the street not looking up. But did you know that the blue light from these devices can actually be damaging for your skin? Four days in front of a computer is just as damaging to your skin as 20 minutes in the mid-afternoon sun.*

I’ve recently been more aware of skincare for pollution which is essential for living in a smoggy city like London, but blue light is one thing I’ve never really thought about. Environmental damage can accelerate the signs of ageing in the form of wrinkles, lines and pigmentation so it’s important to protect your skin from these aggressors. I’ve recently been trying out Murad’s latest launches which look to protect your skin from all five aggressors; blue light, pollution, infrared radiation and UVA/UVB.

Fight Fatigue With REN Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Body Range

Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Anti Fatigue Body Range

When I came back from Los Angeles in April I was extremely jet lagged. I found it hard to adjust to UK time and just generally felt exhausted. I needed a little pick me up and the new REN body range couldn’t have come at a better time.

REN Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium and is all about de-stressing and encouraging our bodies to function better. Magnesium and anti-oxidants help your cells detox, whilst revitalising and re-energising the skin. Magnesium is a mineral that is easily absorbed through the skin and helps it regain the energy it’s lost from stress.

The Perfect Base With Burberry

Burberry Fresh Glow Nude Radiance Review

I wanted to share my recent base combination with you. For a long time and I mean a long time, I haven’t used anything other than my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and as you all probably know by now, it is my holy grail of foundation. I’ve tried a few I quite liked, but nothing stuck and I am always delving back into my bottle of Armani on a daily basis. Now with that foundation I dabbled in a few primers; Guerlain L’Or, Armani’s own hydrating primer, Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer and they all worked really beautiful with it. That aside, let’s fast forward until recently when I got a sample of the Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Base from Sephora when I was in Los Angeles. This primer left me loving it so much than when the sample ran out I just had to get a bottle. I never knew it was just so popular and it was sold out everywhere. However I finally got my hands on it and here we are. Read More »
