How To Detox Your Skin This January

BBHB

Happy New Year! If you are anything like me and maybe indulged over Christmas in a little too much Prosecco, then this month’s blog is for you. With Christmas and New Year celebrations, food and drink can all take its toll on our skin. Therefore this month, I wanted to share some top tips for detoxing your skin this January.

Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise…

Our skin is the largest organ we have and by having a healthy skincare regime, you are doing all you can to help take care of it. I love using the Sienna X Skincare Collection and by using these high quality, natural products twice a day is the first step to achieving this. 

Shine Bright…

Exfoliate with The Facial Polish at least once a week to remove dead skin cells. This not only helps to remove excess oil and build up of dirt, which helps to fight against breakouts. It also reveals brighter, healthier skin too!

Mask it…

Using The Miracle Mask as part of your skincare regime will work wonders, especially in the winter months. This helps to replace lost moisture and helps to prevent skin from drying out that is often caused by the colder temperatures and central heating. Whether you need a quick fix of it working it’s magic for 10 minutes or you to choose to leave it overnight to achieve deeper nourishment, this one is a winter wonder!

Hydrate Your Body…

Christmas often leads to us drinking more alcohol, which in turn not only dehydrates our bodies, but our skin too. As much as a warm cuppa is more appealing, it’s still really important to drink lots of water. The recommended intake per day for men is 3.7 litres and for women 2.7 litres.

Beauty Sleep…

Sleep plays a huge part in not only allowing our minds to rest, but also our skin too! While we sleep, skin produces collagen which helps to plump it up, leading to fewer wrinkles. Blood flow to the face is also increased as we snooze, which helps to give our complexion a healthier appearance.

If you would like any additional information on any of the products I’ve mentioned this month, feel free to pop a question or comment below.

How To Have Radiant Skin This Winter

Throughout the winter months, the colder temperatures can leave our skin feeling dehydrated which can lead to irritation and sensitivity. Therefore this month, I wanted to share 5 five easy ways you can keep your skin happy, healthy and looking radiant.

Drink Water…

I know the idea of having a hot drink on a cold day is far more appealing, but it’s just as important to keep our skin hydrated throughout the winter months as we do in the summer months. By drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day, this helps to flush out toxins, renew skin cells and helps maintain blood pressure.

Cleansing Balm…

This luxury balm removes even long wear and waterproof makeup, (making it perfect for the party season) whilst deeply cleansing away the day and removing negative traces left behind from pollution. It contains Incha Inchi Oil which hydrates and nourishes the skin. It also restructures and repairs deep down which helps to maintain youthfulness and elasticity of the skin.

Miracle Mask…

There is no better treat for your skin than this! The most revolutionising moisture hit in a mask. Natural Manuka Honey helps to retain moisture with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, helping the skin appear instantly brighter and blemish free.

Rose Water…

The perfect duo of skincare and tanning! This lightweight and hydrating rose water, with tanning actives, allows you to build a natural, healthy looking glow. Blended with Chicory Root extract to rebalance and replenish skin, while protecting it from environmental pollution. Organic Rose extract supports the skins pH balance, hydrates and tones for a radiant healthy glow.

Skin Finish…

Ideal for the face and body, this illuminating mist instantly brightens skin making it perfect to use with or without a tan. It’s formulated with highly active moisturising and antioxidant ingredients including Green Tea to ensure skin moisture is restored.

If you would like any additional information or advice, please feel free to leave a comment below, I would love to hear from you. In the meantime, I hope you have a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Behind The Scenes: The New Sienna X Skincare Collection

Sienna X The SkinCare Collection

Last month I was invited to Sienna X Head Office for the launch of their latest addition to the brand; The Skincare Collection.

It was such a great day, not just catching up with the team but also to have the opportunity to use each and every product of the collection on my own face! If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I never recommend a product, unless I have tried it myself!

The Cleansing Lotion: This is perfect to use as a first cleanse or to use as part of a double cleanse. The creamy lotion contains 97% of natural ingredients and helps to restore moisture and remove make up effectively.

The Cleansing Balm: I absolutely fell in love with this product from the minute I tried it. It starts off as a solid and as you warm the product in your hands and glide it over your face and neck, it literally melts away any long lasting make up and removes any negative traces of pollution.

The Toner: Infused with a fresh rose water fragrance, this toner helps to cool, hydrate and rebalance your skin. In the past I’ve used a well known toner that made me skin feel so tight and dehydrated. This is so delicate but does the job! You can spritz over the face and neck, or for a deeper cleanse, apply to a cotton wool pad.

The Face Polish: This is the exfoliator within the range and I loved it, the mineral volcanic pumice helps to remove congested areas as well as brightening and purifying your skin.

The Clay Mask: Unlike other clay masks I’ve tried in the past that literally after 5 minutes of being on my skin, crack. This felt lovely on my skin. It includes Chia Seed Extract which helps to fight dehydration, skin irritation and banish blemishes.

The Chemical Peel: If you are anything like me, I always used to be petrified of a chemical peel. I had visions of my skin literally peeling off. But I was completely surprised when I tried this. It’s 86% natural liquid exfoliator which is infused with Glycolic Acid which helps remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter skin. This would be a night time product as you’d want to avoid any exposure to the sun.

Sienna X Skincare Launch Day

Just a little sneak peek behind the scenes of my day at Sienna X HQ!

The Miracle Mask: Another of my absolute favourites within the collection. This definitely has the right name! It contains 10% Manuka Honey and I can honestly say, my skin has never felt so nourished!

The Day Cream: This contains SPF30, an anti pollution formula as well as Marine Bamboo which is known for fighting the damaging effects of blue light and infra read type A.

The Eye Cream: This contains SPF15 and is designed to brighten and tighten the eye area and like the day cream, also contains Marine Bamboo

The Retinol Serum: A retinol is something I’d never used before but it helps to reduce fine lines, boost collagen and brighten skin. If you like me, are new to using a retinol product, begin using 1-2 times a week and gradually increase. Never use with any other retinoid treatment. This contains 0.3% of pure retinol, the maximum UK strength.

The Facial Oil: I absolutely love to use an oil in my night time routine and this one did not disappoint! The 100% natural, lightweight oil helps to relax and hydrate your skin.

I am a huge fan of the new collection and have been using the range ever since my visit to Head Office! I love the simplicity of the range, but I also love that you can create the skincare routine that fits into your life! All of the products been dermatologically tested, clinically proven and are suitable for sensitive skin. All of the products are between 69% and 100% natural, all cruelty free, vegan friendly* except for the Miracle Mask which does contain 10% Manuka Honey.

If you are anything like me, you’re busy and don’t have the time to use 50 different products, but still want to look after your skin and let’s face it, at times, products within skincare ranges can be completely overwhelming and confusing! 

If you are looking for a new skincare range, without the confusion, that is packed full of high quality, natural ingredients this could be just what you’ve been looking for!
