How To Get The Best Skin Of Your Whole Damn Life

 Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 18.10.01

Because there’s nothing like spot-free, glowing skin to help you take on the world…

Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse

Toning and moisturising are super important, but cleansing is the actual key to clean, fresh skin. Cleansers are anti-ageing, they reduces pores and helps combat spots as well as gently removing dirt, excess oil and make up. Best. Thing. Ever. So start by finding the right products for you depending on your skin type (we love Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream) and don’t miss your date with the bathroom sink ever again!

Quit Wearing Make Up At The Gym

We know your personal trainer is a total hunk and you want to look as gorgeous as poss because let’s face it, you’re wearing lycra, but when you sweat you tend to wipe your skin, which means rubbing make up and dirt into open pores. Sadly, not so good for your skin’s health as it causes blockages and breakouts. Your new workout/skin rules? Cleanse your face immediately after exercise and ideally beforehand too.

Make Zinc Your New Fave Ingredient

It might not sound as sexy as a superfood, but zinc is found in meat, shellfish, yoghurt and nuts, and is an essential mineral which helps skin to heal and repair itself. Research has shown it can be helpful in treating skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and dermatitis. See, not sexy, but soooo good.

Fall In Love With Oil

Despite what you might think, oils and serums won’t give you spots! No matter what your skin type, cleansing oil mixes with the preexisting oils already on your face so when you rinse it off the ‘good oil’ takes the ‘bad oils’ and dirt along with it. Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils is incredibly nourishing and 100% natural, ensuring your skin gets the right amount of slippery TLC.

    Absolutely love the whole idea. Promoting talking about periods. Helping younger girls to ask the questions we all wondered the answers to. Also great value for money. It costs the same as what I spend on tampons and pads anyway. And all the lovely extras are great. You have never disappointed me. I feel like it’s directed towards slightly younger girls than me (23) but I still love everything you provide. The only thing I could think of that could make it better (and it’s purely a personal preference) is if you added way more daily panty liners. That’s the only thing I need to buy additional to pp. Other than that keep going! Absolutely brilliant. And wonderful customer service!!! Where have you been all my life!! Thanks for being so amazing ♡
