My Ultimate Skincare Tips and Tricks

Tuesday, 2 January 2018

I think when it comes to skincare, it's not just about products, it's also important to know how to apply them, how much to apply, the way to apply etc. in order to get the maximum result. Skincare products ain't cheap these days as we all know, so to get your money worth, let me share with you some of my tips and tricks on skincare. Bear in mind that, these methods or products work perfectly well for my skin but people are different, we all have different skin types, different skin conditions etc. so don't be mad if they don't work for you, you can comment below or email me if you need advice on your skincare routine, I'd be happy to help. 

Hands up, how many of you often forget to take care of your eyelashes? I know I do most of the times, and that's pretty bad because the amount of mascara we put on daily really harm our lashes unless you use all natural mascaras but honestly who really does that?! Come on, let's be real here! (I have yet found an all natural mascara that works.) The chemicals in mascaras can stop the growth of lashes and often make them weak so you would experience lash loss or breakage but by using a lash serum can prevent and help to improve all those issues. 

I have been using the *Vee Beauty London Lash and Brow Serum for almost 2 months now and I'm impressed with it. It's made with all natural ingredients like Argon Oil, Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Vitamin E to deep condition and nourish as well as strengthening and making our lashes grow faster. 

(Top: after I pulled all my lash extensions out, I barely have eyelashes left. I literally have more lower lashes rather than top ones. Bottom: after nearly 2 months of using the lash serum. I hope you can see that my top lashes are now much fuller and longer. I'm very happy with the result.)

I get eyelash extension a lot because I love fuller and longers lashes, well who doesn't right? But the consequence of getting an extension on a regular basis is that your natural eyelashes will fall out quite often either naturally (together with the extension hair) or by pulling (I do that sometimes). But ever since I've started using this serum I can even get away with just one coat of mascara, no falsies, no extension and honestly I have never been happier. My lashes seem to be much stronger, and I do notice that they are longer and fuller so big thumbs up and I highly recommend checking it out. You can also use it on your brows. 

Sometimes the sheet mask we use has a lot of serums but our skin can only absorb a certain amount at a time, it'd be such a waste if we throw it away so my tip is to use it twice. I know some of you would say why don't you just use the rest of the serum on your body, your neck or hands. I've tried that, and I really don't care for the stickiness that's on my body so what I do is use the mask once, and put it back in its pouch, refrigerate it and use it again the next day. That's really perfectly okay because of the preservatives in the mask. Just remember double cleanse your face before applying it, and try to use it 2 nights in a row instead of leaving it for a longer period of time. 

I get questions like how come my face oil lasts for only 2 months and yours, in fact, last for like 6 months and longer? The answer is real simple: press and pat your oil into the skin instead of rubbing. If you have dry skin, you can rub the whole bottle on and your skin will still be dry, but if you press and pat while your skin is still damp, you could get a much better result. Your skin will look firmer, brighter and dewier, and you only need 3-5 drops. 

If you have dry/mature skin and just can't seem to find your perfect foundation, you can always try to mix a couple of drops of your favourite face oil in with your foundation and trust me, the application would be much smoother, and your skin would look naturally flawless and perhaps even 5-10 years younger. That cakey face will never happen with this method. 

(2 drops of face oil + foundation = skin perfection) 

And by mix, I mean try to combine your face oils, beauty balms and/or moisturisers into a paste and really work into the skin for that nourishing and brightening effect. I love to mix my own skincare product, sometimes I just spray my face with a mist after cleansing, then use the mixture I made and that's pretty much it for my evening skincare routine, simple but effective. 

It might seem like a lot to use a mask every night but trust me, your skin will thank you as you grow older. It's never too much. You can use a detox mask on Mondays, a hydrating one on Tuesdays, peel mask on Wednesdays, your favourite nourishing mask on Thursdays, sheet masks on Fridays and perhaps a good gentle exfoliating mask over the weekends. Remember: there are no ugly women on earth, there are only lazy ones. 

I've started using eye creams since I was 18, and I have no visible lines nor wrinkles around my eyes. It is essential in everyone's skincare routine. And speaking of routine, after eye creams you can certainly put your face serum/oil over it for a more hydrating effect, just make sure your face oils are all natural. 

Tip 8: HONEY
Honey, in my opinion, is the best thing for our skin. It's what I would call a magical ingredient. I mix honey with my hydrating face masks and it just makes them 20 times better. If a smooth, blemish-free and even-toned skin is your goal, you need honey! But make sure is raw and organic. 

These 8 tips have been helping my skin for as long as I could remember, and my skin is always in a good condition. I'm 34 going on 35 and I always get compliments on my skin and sometimes people think I'm still at 20's which I think says a lot about my tips and tricks. I'm not trying to brag or anything, I'm just trying to share because these tips are the bible to me. 

(me: age 34, bare-faced, no makeup, no filter)

If you are struggling with your skincare routine, try to cooperate these tips in and hopefully they would help you too. Obviously, things like double cleanse, not overly exfoliate, eat well, sleep well etc. are also good-skin factors but these, in my opinion, are just common sense. Try whatever works for your skin and if you have some unique skincare tips, feel free to let me know so we can learn from each other.
