I've been asked a million time what skincare I use, If I have facials and how to get perfect skin.
I'll answer each one separately; firstly I have always had this ethos that if you put good into your body good will show out. It's corny but hey it works so I'll carry on with this cheese fest.
On a serious note I am a firm believer that if you eat healthy then it definitely helps. I try eat and drink as much organic or additive/preservative free foods. The only vitamin I take is Iron as I can get a little on the anemic side if I don't get enough in my diet. I never eat red meat, not as a fancy dietary requirement but more as a taste choice. I hate the taste of red meat so haven't ate it for years. I compensate this factor by adding nuts and grains along with lots of spinach to my meals.
I have a well balanced diet which is mostly chicken, fish and vegetables.
I'm not a health freak but more a believer that natural is best, I never eat ready meals as they're packed with salt and preservatives to keep the food fresh. All them chemicals make me wonder what it does to your insides. I'm not by any means a food snob but I would rather spend 15 mins making a spag bol with quorn nince, tomato sauce and vegetables then bunging in a microwave meal for the same time. I used to do this at work and I noticed that I felt lethargic all the time and my skin wasn't healthy.
Also for those who suffer dry lips try cutting out salt for 1 week and see if you see the difference, if yours always crack and peel you may be dehydrated. I did this and never used salt now and I haven't had sore lips for a long time.
I wish I could have facials but being a beauty therapist I find it hard to relax when someone is doing a treatment I also feel like guilty paying for treatments all the time I mean the hair is expensive enough!
I have been using Neals Yard products for sometime, the fact it's mostly organic appealed the most to me as the ingredients have been around probably centuries.
I was using the frankincense facial oil and moisturiser but as I have ran out I went in search of a new product of equal properties.
Stupidly in the meantime I thought I would give my Loreal genesis moisturiser a bash...MISTAKE as I broke out.
I had read that the gorgeous Jameela Jamil uses an organic range found in Holland and Barretts called Dr Organic. She said the honey moisture smells and feels great so I made it my days mission to go looking for the chosen one. I decided on the vitamin E cream as it has more hydrating ingredients and so far it's working great.
Just look at her skin
