Hola! I started getting Laser Hair Removal treatments some months back, and I’ve been loving the results! I’m about halfway through the process right now, and thought I’d share some of the details!
- You attend a consultation before beginning the laser process. They ensure your safety by asking you questions, and matching you to a specific machine suited to your hair colour and skin tone, to ensure that you get the best results for you
- Full body sessions take about an hour (and are cheaper/more convenient than doing separate body parts)
- You require 10-12 sessions for the best results. After this, you just need to have touch up sessions once or twice a year
- Your sessions tart 4 weeks apart, and then spread out as the hair thins away and the growth decreases – You’ll notice a difference right away
- You shave your to-be-lasered areas 24 hours prior to your appointment (You can’t wax or thread hair during the months in which you’re getting laser, can only shave) If you want to see how I shave my face click here
- The beauticians use a highlighter to draw grids on you so they don’t miss a spot
- Use sunscreen and Laser Aid Cream to make sure your skin stays cool and protected after Laser
Welcome to the third and final part of my Scintillating Skin Series! If you’ve missed it, in Part 1 I spoke about my makeup removal routine, which you can find here, and in Part 2 I spoke about my face cleansing routine which you can find here . Today I’m focusing on my fortnightly face mask routine.
The mask I’ve been using is the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have in the past used the GlamGlow Youthmud mask, which I absolutely loved, but with big pores being my problem area I opted to give the Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment a try. There are 6 GlamGlow varieties, each with a different focus. You can read about each of them on their official website here.
Welcome to part 2 of my skin routine series. Last week I went over my makeup removal routine using my Jane Iredale Magic Mitt. (if you aren’t familiar with the Magic Mitt and haven’t read last week’s post you’re missing out) Check it out here!
This week I’m going over my daily cleansing routine. I used to be really lazy with my skin (not a good idea at all) but I quickly turned that around when I realized how dry and dull my skin had become despite the fact that I was moisturizing daily. My beautician recommended that I use a Dermalogica moisturizer, so I switched my previous moisturizer for the Dermalogica Skin Smoothening Cream. It seriously made such a huge difference that I ditched my old products and bought a collection of Dermalogica products to use instead. Here’s a quick breakdown of what a bought and what they do (in the same order that I use them)-
Since I’ve started teaching I’ve been wearing makeup a lot more than I used to. I used to be lazy with makeup in my uni days, but now I wear makeup to work every day and had been worried about the effect that it would have on my skin. So I’ve recently started following a strict skin routine and thought I’d share the process with you all through a 3 part series, starting off with makeup removal.
So of course, removing your makeup properly is a very important part of skincare. Correctly clearing off your makeup ensures that your skin is able to breathe, and that your pores don’t get clogged up, leaving your skin clean and silky smooth. In the past I used makeup wipes to remove my makeup, but it always felt like a huge chore, and would leave me feeling like I still have makeup on my face. After hearing about it recently, I bought the Jane Iredale Magic Mitt just to give it a try, and I absolutely fell in LOVE with it! To those of you who aren’t familiar with the product, prepare to be amazed!
All natural lip scrub to keep your pout soft and smooth!
With winter well and truly started here in Sydney, my lips have become crazy dry. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it’s a total pain when it comes to matte lipsticks. So I decided to make use of our lime tree out front, gathered bits and pieces from the kitchen and made my very own super easy lip scrub. All natural, cheap, and easy to make. Perfect!
