As the Christmas season approaches, our calendars fill up with festive gatherings. In the middle of all the festivities, it's essential to take a moment to care for yourself and your skin. The winter weather, coupled with holiday stress, can take a toll on your skin, leaving it dull and dehydrated. Taking the proper steps with your festive skincare routine and daily habits can help you maintain your glow and prevent breakouts, while still enjoying everything the season has to offer.
As the temperature drops, our skin often bears the brunt of the seasonal change. Cold weather, low humidity, and indoor heating can strip the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry, flaky, and in need of extra care. Here are a few top tips to keep your skin feeling hydrated this winter.
The two essentials in any skincare are day creams and night creams. But what's the difference between these two, and why are they necessary? Let us tell you: The Morning Ritual The purpose of a day cream is for protection and hydration.

Freckles, or as we like to call them ‘beauty spots’ have become somewhat of a beauty phenomenon over the last few years, with many getting youthful clusters tattooed on their face or using a pencil to achieve the look. While some people are naturally born with a smattering and others are using cosmetic methods to achieve the look, many are unsure what freckles actually are and why some people are graced with them and some aren’t.
SPF season may be upon us, but skincare sleuths like us and yourself know it should be applied 365 days a year (right? 😉).

As we age, fine lines become increasingly noticeable, and complexions can begin to look sallow. However, incorporating skin loving and radiance boosting ingredients into your skincare routine will help keep skin in optimal health. See some of our top tips and ingredients picks below.
We’ve all been there – your eyes are drooping, your bed is calling, and surely it can’t be that bad to sleep in your makeup, right?

Reaching menopause can be challenging for women in a number of ways. For some women, a difference in the texture and appearance of skin is noticed due to the significant hormonal changes that the body is experiencing. As oestrogen levels decline, the skin may become thinner, drier, and lose elasticity, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and age spots.

Think back to your first at-home facial exfoliation experience - did it involve a gritty, harsh scrub that left your skin red raw after? Yep, ours too. Thankfully, for the sake of our skin barriers, the skincare industry has made massive strides and it is more commonplace to find chemical exfoliants in the place of such products. However, that doesn’t mean there’s no place left for a physical exfoliant, and this ultimately depends on your skin type, concerns, and goals.
