7 Habits of Women with Great Skin


You have probably heard people say that someone “just has good skin”, but the truth is that behind that seemingly perfect, smooth skin is a stable, well-balanced skin routine and self-care, without which, no matter how good your genetics, you wouldn’t be able to have good skin. So, let’s see what are the seven most important steps to having a flawless skin routine.

1. Cleanse

The most important part of any skin routine is to first get rid of any impurities that have collected in your pores and on the surface of your skin during the day or while you were sleeping. Use a gentle cleanser like the Clarins cleansing milk to remove impurities without being too hard on your gentle skin.

2. Choose your cosmetics carefully

We live in the day and age when most of the things we use every day are filled with all sorts of chemicals. But for certain things, like the food we eat or the products we apply to our skin, we want to make extra sure that they’re as natural as possible, to give us the best results. Organic, all natural brands like Tammy Fender are great options and they will give you the best results, while also not hurting our planet.

3. Get enough sleep

Many of us lead active, non-stop lifestyles, and are often left having to compensate for that fact, like taking supplements because we don’t have time to eat or putting concealer on the bags under our eyes because we didn’t get enough sleep. But the truth is, there is no product in the world that can do for us all the things that a full night’s sleep can do. It will not only replenish our energy, but give our skin time to recover and rest.

4. Apply sun protection

Everyone likes to put on a tan, but if you’re not careful, you can seriously damage your skin just by being in the sun. Let’s break it down: the vitamin that you get from the sun is great – not just for your skin, but for your whole body. However, the sun is not what it used to be, and the rays are now more harmful than ever. This is why it’s extremely important to use a product with the high SPF, every single day. Use a primer like Nars multi-protect, or apply sunscreen during your makeup routine.

5. Hydrate

For glowing skin, it is crucial to be well hydrated, inside and out. Hydrated skin has more elasticity, fewer wrinkles and its own special glow. There are two main things you should do: First, drink a lot of water. The 8 cups per day are just a minimum, so make sure you carry a water bottle around with you and drink whenever you feel thirsty. Secondly, you should always be using a good hydration cream. Products like The Body Shop’s Nourishing night cream are great to put on before you go to bed, while lighter options like Estee Lauder’s Daywear is the perfect thing to apply in the morning before putting on makeup.

6. Regular treatments

Having a daily routine is important, but sometimes our skin requires extra care. Consider making it a part of your monthly or quarterly routine to go to a professional cosmetician for a treatment of your choice that will improve your skin and give it a boost. But for a more regular schedule, getting a good scrub like the Cosmedix Purity Detox scrub will allow you to exfoliate your skin more frequently. Make sure you don’t do it more than every third day, because you risk taking off too much of the top layer, and always follow the instructions on the product.

7. Healthy habits

It’s no secret that beauty comes from within, and the same goes for health. If you practice healthy habits, eat a balanced diet, drink lots of water and exercise regularly, your skin will show the glow and radiance of health. Avoid eating oily and greasy food, since it can clog your pores; and avoid dehydration to keep your skin glowing.

Of course, some skin types are prone to acne and other blemishes, but as long as you are doing everything in your power to have healthy, happy skin, you can show it off to the world and be proud of it.

Sweet Pea Spa


As you know, I’m a “Priceline sister”…… A huge regular shopper at the Australian wide pharmacy and makeup store. 

I had this product that I bought from there a little while ago but had not used it. At the moment I am currently working casually at the local florist, Merredin Flowers and Gifts store. It is literally a 1-2 minute walk from my home and I just made my first set of flowers. I like the fact that I can use my creative side of my personality. I always wanted to have a job where I use LOTS of creativity as its a BIG thing for me!!!!! 

Here is a photo of what I did!!!!!


I am sssooooo excited to use my creative mind in something and I absolutely love the Body Shop collection of soaps, hand creams and powders. They have orange blossom hand creams and talcum powder.

Since starting, I have not found myself to be used to working as it has been since March last year that I have not been working. I am not used to being on my feet all day! Which is why, when I got home, the Priceline product that I was talking about is Dr. Lewinn’s Revitalising Hand and Foot Polish. Sadly, it seems to be discontinued by Dr. Lewinn’s themselves (yes I did my research!) but there might be a possibility that you can find it at Priceline. The best part about it is it is an exfoliator and it is also Sea Salt. It also has macadamia and aromatic oils. It makes you feel like you’ve been to a day spa without the expensive entry! 

After rubbing it on my feet I just felt sooooo much better!!!!!! My feet don’t feel as sore anymore, and it felt heavenly when massaging my feet! It is a great formula and is highly effective to exfoliate and moisturise to soften, smooth and revitalise the hands and feet! 

So because of working at a giftware place, The next product on my “to buy” list is a Sweet Pea Bath Salt and is ONLY $13.95!!!! How cheap!!!!! I am grabbing it as soon as I get my next pay!!!!! Hehehe I tried looking for it on the internet but I think you might have to go to the main website.

Hop on over to the The Body Collections Facebook page!!!! 


I also uploaded the Bath Salt on my Instagram page! ❤️🎀

It is definitely what I am getting next!!!! If you live in Merredin, come in and see Andrea and she will assist you. There are also amazing candles on display and I like the idea of “Pink Rose”! 💕💝


You can have the candles going while popping in the bath salts in the bath and experience a bit of aromatherapy! 

This weekend I just want to book a pampering session!!!! I feel I am in NEED for a massage! I may have to book with Kates Tan and Body Salon – I have not been there yet! I’d love to book a day spa in Perth, now that would be DIVINE! 😍

I may book a haircut appointment as I like to keep my hair at shoulder length, with a concave look. If I do do it, I will post a photo when I’m done! 

Have a happy week!

Dreamy Body Mist


Two days ago I visited Perth! Yes, again…… This is becoming a regular thing. Garden City just has everything…… Chanel, Forever New, Review, Cue, the list goes on! 

I went to check out the movies but nothing good was on at the time. So I had a Vanilla Soy Chai Latte and browsed in Dymocks. One of my favourite shops! 

This time I went to The Body Shop. I had something in particular I was looking for…. I explained to the lady what I wanted as I had picked up a massage oil but it was too thick and not to put on the face as it can cause break outs. 

 

http://www.thebodyshop.com.au 

On the website there are a range of body mists such as Vanilla Body Mist, Red Musk, Pink Grapefruit Body Mist and Mango Body Mist. 
 

The lady showed me something that has seriously CHANGED MY LIFE!!!!! 

This is the NEW product I have been DYING to share. 

It is called “Quiet Night Dreamy Body Mist” and you spray it all over your body 15 to 30 minutes before bedtime and also can spray it on your pillow. You can also spray it on your sheets….. And the special encapsulation technology bursts of active fragrance will be released through out the night. 

 
 
It has Jujube date extract, community trade camomile and blended essential oils such as lavender to enhance restful sleep. It is absolutely soothing…… And promotes restful sleep. 

This is a WONDER!!!!!! I had the best sleep last night and it cost me about $22. 

Also, night time movement releases the natural fragrance, so it works while you sleep!!!! 

I can not think of a better product!!!! It is something that I have been looking for to help me get better sleep at night….. And I actually spray a bit on my forehead when I am stressed or needing something soothing. Although, it is NOT for the face, and you are meant to avoid the eye area, a little bit on the forehead would be okay. 

I tell you, if you buy this you will NOT be disappointed….. It does all the work while you sleep! 

Look at what someone had to say about it: 

“My overly active mind has ensured that I have always had difficulty falling asleep – and staying asleep – so I have welcomed this Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist: a great companion during the nocturnal hours! I spray this onto my arms and wrists where it is readily accessible throughout the night, and make sure that I inhale it both before and after turning my light out. A beautifully intoxicating, wonderfully sleep-inducing fragrance which I recommend to everyone who has some difficulties with sleep whether it be all the time or just occasionally.”

So, this product is an absolute WONDER! And I highly recommend it to those that need aide in sleep…..


Happy Body Mist shopping!!!!
