Acne Patches..

So I want to share a product that I found really useful ever since i found out about it. I was watching some random night routine videos on YouTube when a youtuber mentioned that she used acne patches on her acne when she got home from work/school to help her skin heal quickly and keep it from scarring. The product immediately caught my attention. These acne patches are easily available in pharmacies and  big supermarkets in Pakistan now.

My main worry whenever i get a zit or pimple on my face is the scar it leaves behind. Continue reading

makeup at the end of the day?

i think most of the girls like makeup( Now there’s an assumption *says to self* *rolls her eyes*). So yeah, I think most girls use some form of makeup. Eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss? What’s your favourite makeup item?

Makeup can surely make you feel fresher and cuter or whatever but how many of us realise taking off makeup at the end of the day is just as important? Answer: It’s very important. Your skin needs to be clean, breathe, repair itself at night. So taking your makeup off is very important indeed.

I am going to share what i usually do to take off my makeup. The routine can be quite time taking sometimes and i would skip some steps but in a perfect world this would be my makeup removing routine everyday.

1) Cleaning eye makeup using bioderma and cotton pads
2) Cleansing face with a cleansing milk and olive oil or a cleansing oil
3)Cleaning skin again with a cleansing milk
4) Washing it with a face-wash.
5)Applying a toner and moisturizer afterwards.

i try to do this twice or thrice a week, thorough cleansing, if i wear makeup everyday. but even if i do wear makeup frequently sometimes laziness gets the best of me and sometimes i use bioderma all over my face or mix olive and cleansing milk and combine steps 2 and 3.

You can use the products that work best for you or that make your skin feel better. After much trial and error, the product I use nowadays include bioderma sensibio micelle solution, borges extra virgin olive oil, olay essentials conditioning milk and clean and clear exfoliating daily wash.

I loosely built this makeup cleansing regime around this video by Lisa Eldridge. She shares some awesome tips in this video.
