We all have our own routine when it comes to making nice with our face and hair. So, what are your secret tips and tricks when it comes to putting your face on? I have raided the bathroom cupboards, and sometimes the kitchens, of some of the beautiful people around me to show you exactly what it takes when it comes to getting all cleaned up.
Age and Occupation.
26. 4th year occupational therapist student.
What are your go-to skin care products?
Johnsons&Johnsons make-up removal wipes and Nivea Creme.
Do you follow the classic 3-step programme, (cleanse, tone, moisturize)?
Tell us a beauty secret your mother taught you?
This face mask made from tartaric acid that burns like anything but, it gets rid of all the dead cells on your face and leaves your skin feeling super soft and smooth. Also, the classic of coconut oil to nourish your hair.
What are your make-up staples?
I used to use Make-Up Forever’s Liquid Lift base, which is a light covering base. But lately I discovered the Woolworths basic range base which covers really well. YSL liquid liner and Make-Up Forever smokey lash.
Any skin difficulties you have had to deal with, and how you deal with it?
Yes, I have really dry skin on my nose and cheeks so I use a salt scrub to help with that. Also, I suffer from a genetic skin condition called Rosacea which I counteract by using a green cover-up by Krayola on my face. But, since I have switched bases I have to use a lot less of the cover-up.
What’s the deal with your hair?
My frothy hair is dry, with split ends. Right now I’m trying to grow it our for my sister’s wedding – so no trims! I don’t think there is a use for fancy, expensive shampoos as I have never seen a difference in my hair when I do use them. So, I stick to Elvive and a coconut or Moroccan oil treatment every now and then.
Do you change any products from winter to summer?
In winter I tend to use a lot more body moisturizer. And in summer I use Xeroderm SPF under my base only if I know I am going to be in the sun. I try to stay out of the sun at all times to protect my fair skin.
What is your go-to scent?
What is beauty to you?
Anything that makes you smile!
