Behind The Scenes: My Evening Skincare Routine

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty May Blog Post

I often get asked about the products I use for make up and skincare, so with that in mind I thought I would share with you my evening skincare routine. I love nothing more than finishing a long day, coming home, changing in to my pjs and taking off my make up. I really enjoy cleansing “the day away” and allowing my skin to breathe. My skin can be sensitive so I always need to be a little careful of what I use. To remove my eye make up, I use Micellar Water. It’s really gentle and removes even my waterproof mascara with ease.

Step One..

I start by applying apply my Cleanse and Polish all over my face and massage in. I do this on to dry skin, working in small circular motions all over my face and neck. I would then rinse my cotton cloth under hot water and remove. The cloths help to remove dead skin cells and instantly leave my skin feeling brighter and smoother. I would then splash cold water over my face to close my pores.

Step Two…

Next I would apply a few drops of Instant Boost Skin Tonic to a cotton pad and wipe all over my face and neck. This helps to brighten, revive and soothe my skin, plus it’s alcohol free so doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight.Step Three…

Finishing off with my Moisturiser. I use the one for dry/sensitive skin but there is also a normal/combination one too. It gently restores moisture, softens skin and protects against dryness. The scent of all of the products is absolutely divine too!Untitled design-2Step Four…

Finally before bed, I apply one to two pumps of the Superskin Concentrate into my hands, rub together and massage all over my face and neck and let it work it’s magic! It helps to rebalance and plump skin for a healthier appearance. This is one of my absolute favourite products!

I cannot recommend the Liz Earle skincare range highly enough, and can honestly say, my skin has never felt so clean. You can find out all about the amazing skincare range and more, over on the Liz Earle website. I’m not an affiliate for Liz Earle, I just love recommending products that work, and make me feel lovely when I use them.

Until next time, love the skin you’re in!

It’s no secret, I love new products, but most of all I love new Sienna X products! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on not one, not two, but three brand new products! So, this month, I’m going to be sharing them with you too!Sleep Tan Drops BBHBFirst up is Sleep Tanning Drops and this is just what sweet dreams are made of! It’s great for creating a natural glow to the face or to maintain your facial tan after your spray tan.

How To Use: Shake well before use and mix one or two drops into your daily moisturiser, serum, night cream or face oil in the palm of your hand. Don’t forget to wash your hands after use to avoid tanned palms.Skin Finish BBHB

I just love this so much! The Skin Finish is beautiful and perfect for illuminating your skin after your tan. It is also packed with moisturising and anti-oxidant ingredients which are perfect for hydrating your face and body whilst giving you a radiant glow.

How To Use: Shake well before use and spray 30cm away from face and body. You can intensify results by allowing mist to fully dry before repeating.3

The last product is the Self Tan Remover. It comes with a bottle of remover and mitt to ensure that you can fully remove tan build up or to correct self tan mistakes at home. I think this would be perfect for clients who regularly self tan or have regular spray tans.

How To Use: Apply to stubborn areas with remover mitt, exfoliate fully for a full tan detox and repeat if needed. Shower and pat dry before applying fresh self-tan or prior to your next spray tan appointment.

Why not try them for yourself at your next tanning appointment. I think you’ll love them just as much as I do! In the meantime, you can head over to my Instagram page where you’ll find some videos on the results of the fabulous products!

Why Self Care Is So Important

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

Self care is something that us women often neglect. We can end up putting everything, including others before ourselves. Life is busy, with many of us juggling home, work and family life, so this month I wanted to share with you why self care is so important…

Before I begin, I hold my hands up, my self care routine isn’t that great, however this is something that I am going to work really hard on changing. A lot of it is to do with mindset, we can often feel guilty about taking time out, however to avoid overwhelm and to maintain our health, it really is vital.

Last year, we were doing some building work at home so had made the decision to not go away on holiday, but as a result, I took no real time off. I had become a slave to my business without even realising. We then went away for the first two weeks of January and it was only then, I realised how much I needed a break.

This kind of ‘lifestyle’ isn’t sustainable and eventually would of turned into complete burnout. So, my question to you is, and I want you to be really honest with yourself; When was the last time, you did something just for you?

We often think that self care needs to cost us money, but it really doesn’t. It doesn’t always have to be a spa day or a weekend away. Sometimes it can just be going for a walk and getting back in touch with nature or having a bath with your favourite candle and glass of Prosecco.

With Valentine’s Day later this month, I think there is no better time to show yourself some love! Why not take yourself on a date. Go to your favourite cafe, have lunch or treat yourself to a shopping day. Even if you don’t buy anything, your body and mind will thank you for giving it a day of just wandering!

So what will you commit to this month, how can you give yourself the gift of some self care? I’d love you to share with me one thing you’ll do this month in a comment below.

Until next time, show yourself lots of love!

Love,
