General Beauty Tips

Wear sunscreen daily (from face to chest, and hands) and wear a hat.Never forget the hat. And remember sunscreen only lasts for 2 hours, so don’t think applying it in the morning is sufficient for afternoon sun exposure. However, vitamin D is vitally important to your health, so be sure to get at least 10 mins sun exposure daily, in the early morning or late evening.

Exfoliate at least twice a week. This removes dead skin, leaving your skin looking smooth and bright. It also allows better absorption of the products used.

Your twice daily cleansing routine should include your neck (front and sides), around your ears and upper chest. People tend to forget about these areas and it really does show. And ageing also shows easily on your hands so remember to give them tlc as well.

Go for monthly facials. No matter how expensive or high quality your products are there is absolutely no substitution for a facial. With all the toxins we are exposed to daily a deep cleanse on a regular basis is essential. House of Perfection in Randburg is incredible and comes with the highest recommendations. And remember, if you spend money on good skin treatment you won’t need to spend it on make up. (and their prices are completely reasonable as well) http://www.houseofperfection.co.za/

When applying eye cream (never applying to your eyelids) use your ring finger and gently dab the product on. .

You can also rub your morning teabag over your face for extra toning and anti-ageing benefits. Green tea, rooibos and horsetail are my favourites for this. Also, if you squeeze fresh lemon juice into your morning tea, rub the lemon over your skin and leave to dry. It is whitening, anti-ageing and astringent (and takes basically no extra time to do).

Your twice daily cleansing routine should include your neck (front and sides), around your ears and upper chest. People tend to forget about these areas and it really does show. And ageing also shows easily on your hands so remember to give them tlc as well.

You can use a micro-fiber mitt instead of a cleanser and it works amazingly. It even removes mascara! And because you are not using any harsh cleanser your ph balance remains balanced. When the mitt gets old use it to apply toner, minimising cotton use (or use a sterile gauze, which also uses less product and slightly exfoliates), or fill it with Bath Soak, tie it closed and use as a creamy body scrub.

Sterilise all face cloths, sponges, brushes and make up applicators at least once a week. Dip them in a bowl of water with a drop of tea tree oil afterwards to give it a slight anti-bacterial film.

How to tie the drawstrings on the organza bags : It can be very frustrating if you have to struggle to unknot the bags, especially after a relaxing bath. So here’s a way that makes it easy to untie while remaining firm enough when tied to not loosen by itself. So when you tie a knot you first intertwine the two sides together, then pull tight, then bend each side back and intertwine them again and pull tight. To tie the bag, pull the drawstring closed, intertwine the two strings together, pull tight, then turn over the bag and repeat, so you’ll again intertwine the two strings together and pull tight. And that’s it. It will stay together when it should and come apart when it should.
