Updated Skincare Routine | 2016♡

As highly requested from all you lovely readers I’ve decided to upload an updated skincare routine. As through my good days and bad days my skin has massively improved from frequent breakouts to hardly any! As I started to  notice my skin was frequently breaking out I knew I had to try and fix it, so I decided to think about what I could do not just by using products but also taking a look into my lifestyle – which honestly plays a large part in this!

I hardly used to drink any water and have quite a lot of sugar which clearly didn’t balance out. So without a thought I stopped having sugar and started drinking plenty more water to clear out all the toxins and allowing the inside of my body to be much more hydrated and healthy. At first you may think Kiran are you crazy? No sugar..but honestly it’s the best thing I’ve ever done! Now onto the products which have helped my skin stay smooth, less oily and hydrated! I try not to use products on my skin everyday as personally I think every couple of days is much more effective as the use of products consistently can also have a negative impact on your skin.

Cream Cleanser – Bee Good. I have used this cleanser for a quite a while now mainly because it’s a good consistency and absorbs into my skin easily without irritating it as I have quite sensitive skin but I don’t use this on a day to day basis but every other day. It leaves my skin looking and feeling fresh.

Clear out face pore strips – T Zone. I purchased these strips last month and once I had used them it made me think where have you been all my life? As these strips allow your blackheads to be removed as well as any oil instantly.  They’re easy to use give incredible results in a small space of time.

Nugg Beauty face masks – Selfridges.  Both the exfoliating face mask and the deep cleansing face mask they both provide my skin with 2 different services which are both as important. Any redness is removed by the deep cleansing face mask and the exfoliating face mask hydrates the skin immensely. Again, I don’t use face masks as frequently as I use the cream cleanser I prefer to apply a face mask a month if my skin isn’t too bad if it is I apply a face mask twice a month!

Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask – Lush. Another face mask I have been alternating between is this one from Lush which I think is a perfect match for my skin. Containing blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin this contains vitamins as it contains wholesome blueberries which is why I think it’s great!

Strawberry body butter – The Body Shop. This is perfect if you have normal dry skin as it moisturizes perfectly and doesn’t feel heavy at all it’s quickly absorbed and long lasting which I love!

*Hand&Nail Care Routine!

P_20150516_130821  P_20150516_130856P_20150516_130849

Hey guys.

I’m supposed to be revising English Literature as I have an exam tomorrow but I thought I’d take a little break as I’ve been at it all morning.

So I’ve got another routine post as you know from the title – It’s my hand&nail care routine. As you may or may not know I love taking care of my nails as I think they’re one of the best things about being a girl!

My routine:

I always ensure whenever my hands a feeling rough or dry I apply hand cream the hand cream I am using at the minute is the Sebamed hand+nail balm. This balm is quickly absorbed which I love!! It also has the most nicest scent to it.

I love painting my nails and making them look super pretty. I have recently been loving the Maybeline colour show nail varnishes these are super easy to apply, they last quite long without chipping and most of all it dries really quick.

As well as ensuring my nails are painted I always ensure they’re cut to a suitable length as well as nicely shaped. I always file my nails in a round motion because I love this look to my nails – as when I apply nail varnish it looks flawless!

Finally, I can’t leave Primark without purchasing a packet of false nails. As I think they’re so good for the price and you can shape them however and they’re so easy to put on. I mean seriously you can’t go wrong!!

What’s your favourite nail varnish? Comment below.

I can’t tell you how much I miss blogging but it’ll all be back to normal in a few weeks.

My Skincare Routine

P_20150314_105109

Hi, my beautiful readers!

I hope your all good and having a good weekend – my weekend has gone way to fast for my liking.

As many of you have requested for a skincare routine here it is!

I like to keep my skin healthy and hydrated. For my skin to stay hydrated I use the following products:

1. Seaweed purifying facial cleanser – The Body Shop. I use this as a daily wash to keep my skin soft. It never lets me down my skin is quite dry so this is amazing for my skin and keeps it looking fresh.

2. Seaweed clarifying toner – The Body Shop. I use this to remove my makeup, it works really well gets rid of all my makeup all in one and purifies my skin perfectly!

3. Seaweed pore-cleansing facial exfoliator – The Body Shop. This exfoliates my skin faultlessly. I don’t always use this as often as the facial cleanser but it’s just as good.

4. Seaweed ionic clay mask – The Body Shop. I don’t frequently wear face masks but when I do which is usually once a month I use this seaweed mask – I love this. I chose to purchase this when I saw velvetgh0st feature this in one of her videos highly recommending it. Now that I use it, I highly recommend it to. It refreshes my skin – keeping it looking fresh and clean.

5. InstaNatural eye serum – Amazon. I have recently started using this eye serum – I’m liking it so far. This is intended to remove under eye circles it seems to be working and making my under eyes look much better. If you need an eye serum I recommend this.

To keep your skin healthy the key is to drink plenty of water and keep it clean. Also, try not to wear foundation and apply BB cream as it’s much healthier for your skin. Also, don’t always apply too many skin products as this can irritate your skin.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my skincare routine.

I’m going to do this in three sections:

Face:

Rimmel wake me up make up foundation – This foundation has such a great coverage and I’ve been using this for quite a while and I love it.

Collection lasting perfection concealer – This concealer is literally the best. I couldn’t cover my under eyes properly until I purchased this its amazing and I really recommend this to anyone in need of a good concealer.

Rimmel stay matte pressed powder – Stay matte powder is just an essential your makeup looks flawless once you apply this. Keeps your makeup looking good all day.

Makeup revoloution powder blusher hot – This blusher has a really nice colour to it not to pale that you can’t see but not too bright either which I think is perfect!

Eyes:

Rimmel scandaleyes micro liner black – This eyeliner is literally my favourite makeup product. It makes top liner so east to apply.

Rimmel London scandaleyes retro glam mascara – I use this mascara for my top lashes as I find this mascara doesn’t clump on my lashes.

MUA extreme curl mascara black – I use this mascara on my bottom lashes as it has the perfect brush for my bottom lashes.
