Skin care ramble..
- Never have a hot shower after you torture your eyebrows.
- Try using baby powder on the area before you start threading.
- Use a toner, ice or aloe vera gel to calm your skin.
Lesson learned, hopefully the next time I shouldn't have that problem. Anyway, on a whim, whilst at Liberty's I decided to purchase the Kiehl's 'cucumber toner', as I read in a magazine that Diane Kruger uses it to soothe her sensitive skin.
What do I think so far? It's 'nice', however for an alcohol free toner it's extremely astringent, it hasn't broken me out or dried my skin out, however it's only been about 1 week.
I also talked myself into buying the new 'Midnight recovery concentrate', which is made from 99.8% natural ingredients. (paraben, fragrance and mineral oil free) It's a lightweight oil based formula that easily absorbs into your skin overnight. It has evening primrose oil, squalane and essential oils of lavender
I apply 2-3 drops every night on it's own, I love how it feels on my skin and it feels and looks like my skin is more radiant and smooth. If it turns out to be a miraculous product I will do a more in depth review.
After my last skincare post where I mentioned I was a skincare nerd, I was asked if I wanted to have a read of Liz Earle's 'Skin Secrets' book... I accepted and wanted to share my thoughts with you as I really enjoyed it.
FYI: My lack of posts recently is due to the holy month of Ramadan, fasting is going well - I have been sticking to all things healthy with the odd cheat :) I am going to try my best to do some hijab looks as I have been going to the mosque and I think it will be interesting for you to see how I wear it.
