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.

All You Need To Know About Self Tanning…

Self Tanning products can leave you feeling a little nervous and with so many options available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. So, whether you are a first time self tanner or a pro, I’m here to help you discover all you need to know…

2

The One Hour Self Tan Tinted Lotion… This tan is perfect for those of you who are short of time and don’t want to sit around, waiting for your tan to develop. You can shower after just one hour and watch your tan develop further over the next 1-4 hours. Leaving you with a gorgeous light to medium tan. Depending on skin tone, results may vary.

3

Gradual Glowing Self Tan… This is perfect for enhancing your tan or creating one. It gradually builds up the colour as desired. If you like your tan a little darker, then this one can be re-applied. It also contains an anti-cellulite formula, which helps to tone and smooth the skin! I really love this product and personally, this is my favourite as you can build up the colour to get your desired result!

4

Q10 Self Tan Tinted Mist… This is a brilliant product for topping up your tan and is a “spray tan in a can”. It provides instant colour when you need it and takes up to 8 hours to fully develop. With a 360° nozzle, it makes it really easy to apply. Simply hold the can 15-20cm away from the body and spray, allow to dry before dressing. This is another real favourite of mine, it’s quick, easy and no mess! This can also be re-applied to create a darker looking result.

5

Deep Self Tan Lotion… This one has a strong instant guide colour, making it really easy to apply. It develops within 8 hours and once it’s been washed off, you will be left with flawless, deep rich colour. I would recommend this one for darker skin tones or if you like a medium to dark tan.

6

Q10 Bronzing Mousse… Like many of the products within the range, this one is an award winner! This is a dark tan mousse again with a visible guide colour for easy application. It will begin developing within 2-4 hours and should be rinsed off after 8 hours. As with the Deep Self Tan Lotion, I would recommend this one for darker skin tones that like a richer, deeper looking tan.

7

Finally, I would always recommend using Sienna X Secret Tan Primer and Luxury Tanning Mitt when applying any self-tanning product. The Primer needs to be applied to hands, elbows, knees and ankles along with any other dry areas to ensure you create a natural looking tan. The Tanning Mitt helps to create a flawless and streak free application and avoids your palms being left with a tan!

If you would like any additional information about any of the range, or you would like some tips on using any of these products at home, then I would love to hear from you, simply leave me a comment below or pop over to my Facebook page.

Happy Tanning!
