My Ultimate Skincare Guide

I am constantly asked about my skincare routine so its about time I shared it with you all. I suffered with acne throughout my teenage years and that is really where my interest in make up came about. Some mornings I would wake up and not want to leave the house so covering spots became a necessity for my confidence. I tried everything recommended for acne and finally made a huge decision to go on Roaccutane. After over a year on Roaccutane and lots of negative side effects I finally had clear skin.  Going on Roaccutane is serious decision and should not be made lightly. If anyone wants to mail me about it feel free. I would not recommend going on Roaccutane. There are lots of alternatives and sometimes acne could be a result of a food intolerance. There are so many other less agressive options. So if anyone knows how it feels to have really bad skin I do! It has made me love what I do even more because if I can make anyone lacking in confidence feel better well then that is amazing.   My weekly skincare guide:   MASKS No.7  Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask I have been using this for a few months now and I really love it.  It basically instantly hydrates your skin, so after a long week of wearing make up it revitalises your skin and brings it back to life. I recommended this a while back on my facebook page and since then so many of you went out ant bought it and have been raving about it too. I apply this all over my face twice a week and leave it soak in to my skin for about 10 minutes and then rinse off. You can see the results straight away.

I would describe it as a 'facial in a jar' , your skin looks amazing instantly so its great to use before a big night out or special occasion. The ingrediants are of the highest quality and leave you with excellent results. The best thing about this is that it is suitable for all skin types and men can use it too! It is 99% paraben free and cruelty free and leaves skin revitalised for 3 days after each application. Some of its many benefits include; minimised pores, softens fine lines and wrinkles, skin collagen synthesis for a 3 day glow and resurfacing exfoliation. I apply this all over mt face and leave it for 10 minutes before rinsing off.  I think this is the type of product that once you try it you won't be able to live without it.

Unlike most exfoliators this one is not abrasive in the skin and leaves your skin feeling nourished. It is packed full of skin softening ingredients like jojoba and apricot oils and buttermilk. I have been using this product twice a week  for over a year now , I massage it all over my skin and then rinse off with warm water. Retail Price :€9.95 LP-FACESCRUB-ALMONDMILK-01010001   MOISTURISER Cocowel Coconut Oil I have ranted and raved about Coconut oil for a long time now. I use it for my hair, skin, teeth, cooking the list is endless. I have noticed a big difference in my skin since I started using this. It is so affordable and one tub lasts nearly the whole year. It reduces dry/flaky skin and can reduce inflammation too and there are no harsh harmful chemicals that you need to worry about. Retail Price : (Prices Vary) cocowel-coconut-oil   Green Angel Seaweed and Collagen Face cream This is a nice daily mosituriser made here in Ireland. Its main ingrediant is  Irish Seaweed which is famous for its its skin loving nutrients and vitamins. It also contains collagen which is great for firming the skin and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I apply a small amount of this to my skin in the morning. Retail Price : €24.95 Green-Angel-Seaweed-Collagen-Face-Cream-353x210 EYE CREAM Green Angel Seaweed and Aloe Eye Gel I much prefer using a gel under my eyes as apposed to a cream as it is much lighter, the skin under the eye is very thin and a cream can sometimes be a bit heavy and result in milia. This eye gel contains rejuvenating seaweed and invigorating aloe vera so I find it great for reducing puffiness and taking away the appearance of tired eyes. I use it first thing in the morning and store it in the fridge over night so its really refreshing and hydrating. Retail Price : €20 1662713_815159241831443_675619128_n   For cleansing and toning I alternate between No.7 and Green Angel products and usually use Johnsons baby oil as my eye make up remover. Tara x
