Cleanse Your Brushes and Your Face

We all know the importance of cleansing our skin everyday from all the pollution, toxins and make-up it is faced with, but we must also  focus on keeping the things we put on our faces clean as well.

Our make-up brushes are exposed to the air and make-up which makes them prone to bacteria growing on them. Okay, it isn’t that bad, but after a few weeks the build up of even dust can create a sensitive reaction on your face when applying. Therefore, it is important to cleanse our brushes and other make-up applicators  every two weeks.

My current favorite cleanser for my beautyblender® and make-up brushes  is (linked below):
 

What I love about it is that it cleanses both your beautyblender® and brushes and it does so without getting the other parts of your brushes wet, except for the bristles.

How to use:
    •    I take a bowl of hot water and place it next to my sink.
    •    I dip the make-up brush ( just the bristles) into the hot water.
    •    I then rub the brush on the soap and you can actually see the makeup coming off.
    •    I repeat the above steps till I can see all the make- up is removed.
    •    I squeeze the bristles to remove the excess and run it through the tap water.
    •    Lay it out to dry.

Remember it is all about finding what is right for your skin.

Klairs - The top Korean Skincare brand for sensitive skin

From left to right: Klairs supple preparation facial toner | Klairs freshly juiced vitamin drop | Klairs rich moist soothing cream | Klairs midnight blue calming cream

Have you got sensitive skin? I think most of us would answer yes to that!

One of my current favorite Korean skincare brands is Klairs. Their range of face washes, toners, vitamin c, and moisturizers don’t contain any harsh chemicals or alcohols that will further harm your skin, but instead provide the right ingredients to cleanse, hydrate and protect it.

Here are my current favourites in my skincare routine:

Klairs supple preparation facial toner: The purpose of a toner is to bring back the natural PH balance of your skin after cleansing, so it isn’t prone to bacteria,cleanse any extra residue and to prepare your skin for the rest of your skincare routine. This toner does just that.

Klairs freshly juiced vitamin drop:  We’ve all heard how Vitamin C is great for pigmentation issues but can also be really strong for sensitive skin. Klairs has come up with a mild version containing 5% of concentrated Vitamin C to provide a great water-soluble, non irritating solution to brighter skin. (Please use this only at night!).

Klairs rich moist soothing cream: If you want a good hydrating moisturizer, you need one that doesn’t overly hydrate your skin, causing clog pores, and at the same time include ingredients that are working on your skin barrier to keep it hydrated.  Klairs soothing cream is great for all skin types, all year round with no animal based components, fragrances or dyes.

Klairs midnight blue calming cream: Those days when your skin just looks so irritated, typically after a facial, laser, waxing, threading ( girls you know what I’m talking about), this calming cream is the best remedy for your skin. It contains chamomile and Centella Asiatica Extract which are the main ingredients in ointments to help repair skin.

Remember it is all about finding what is right for your skin.

Cleansing: The Start to Great Skin

 Many of us have such a busy schedule that forget about skincare, we struggle to find time to eat properly.

However, even though we are so busy, we need to make time for the essentials of skincare which include cleansing. We are surrounded by so much pollution, dirt, bacteria that we need to cleanse our skin twice a day to ensure that our skin, our biggest organ, can breathe.

A great cleanser that works for all skin types, removing makeup, dirt and pollution is the (linked) :


One important tip I have learnt is spend more on the products that stay longer on your skin. Therefore, don’t invest in cleansers that are very expensive claiming to bring that glow, or reduce acne for example. But instead look at a cleanser that suits your skin type, removes your makeup well and doesn’t dry out your skin.

How to use: Morning and night, whether you have makeup on or not, apply over a wet face and rub off.

You can get it here and what’s great is you can get a small size to try out first.
 
Remember it is all about finding what is right for your skin.
