How to keep your skin looking younger and healthier



If you want to keep your complexion looking as good as it can, then you do need to put some effort into maintaining your skin.

There are two key actions in my view that you must take every day and twice a day, and all up it will cost you about 10 minutues every day in total.......and everyone can find 5 mins in the morning and 5 mins at night.  No excuses, just do it!  


The two most inmportant things to keep those fine lines to a minimum are Cleansing and Moisturising and you should look to use good quality products for both of these actions.

1.  Cleansing the skin twice a day will really keep your skin fresh and glowing with health.  If you have a blemished skin then cleansing is key to reducing the inflamations at all times ( I know as I had oily and blemished skin in my teens)  Use a cloth with warm water to remove the cleanser as the cloth helps to exfoliate the skin.  You can use a simple face cloth or invest in one designed to help exfoliate (see picture below), either way just use a cloth!

2.A good Moisturiser, even if you have oily skin, moisturising the skin can help to balance it out and provide hydration - not oil- hydration. There are many moisturisers that work on oily skin so look around and find one that suits your skin type and budget.

Most skins are really craving a luscious and creamy mositurer that is made from natural and organic ingredients.  Always buy the best moisturiser you can with your budget and remember that the most expensive is not always the best.  Don't just by a name brand as that's what your paying for the name, but ,you need to make sure the ingredients are what your skin needs to stay healthy and radiant.

Buying the right products will make the expereicne of cleansing and moisturising your skin something you look forward too each day.

If you want to try Organic products I can highly recommend Elly B Organic skincare as the products are truely luxurious and creamy and do a great job and won't break the budget!

 Go for their Coconut Cleanser, it is creamy and smells great and will take off all your makeup. If you have the oily skin you will love their Purifying Cleanser.  As for the moisturiser I love the Aromatic which is really good on an oily skin or if you need a little more creamy moisture go for the  Essential Moisturiser - they are all excellent products.  The prices for Elly B clesnsers are $35.00 and the moisturisers are typically around $42.00 which is not that expensive really. 


                                   
You can buy Elly B from:    http://www.wholesaleskincare.com.au/  & get Free Post as well!
They come in great pump bottles so you do not waste product and you only pump out as much or as little as you need.  It is made here in Australia, so buy an Aussie product!

Mascara and what makes a good one

I don't know how many mascara you have tired in your life time, but I have tried  many in my research to find one that I would be prepared to sell.

There are some that are so complicated to apply that I gave up and some that had 3 different tubes of stuff to use, one was the white thickening fluff and then there was the black thickening stuff and then the actual mascara. OMG far to complex for me, but, that one ended up looking pretty good, in fact it looked like I was wearing false eye lashes, but all that fluff in your eyes, I am sure it is not good for you.

I tried the brand Blinc - they actually tube your lashes and do look good and sound like they are a healthy choice for you eyes, but they are so expensive.  I dont like to pay $35.00 or more for a mascara at all!

I have tried the cheaper stuff like BYS, now that was only about $12.00 and I can tell you it did a good job of seperating the lashes and then making them look thicker.  It compared to some that were RRP of $25.00 upwards..so BYS is not a bad buy.

I then found - Love Atti which I imported, it really is one of the best I have tried so far.  It is RRP of about $15.00 and when you do two applications your lashes will look really longer and thicker than they did before you applied it.  It does not clump up, it seperates the lashes.  I was very impressed with this one, so now I import the brand and sell it.

Makeup Artist Lauren Nolan of Melbourne has reviewed this product for us and she has given it her seal of approval.




So if you need a new mascara try Love Atti from http://www.discountskincare.com.au/

Organic skincare is the newest trend in Skincare

Skincare comes in many shapes sizes and styles, but the big trend really is to use natural ingredients and organic ingredients.

Why is Organic important you might ask?

When you look at how Organic ingredients are grown and derived it really makes a lot of sense to use skincare that has been developed with these types of ingredients.

No one likes to eat chemicals right?  So why put them on your skin?

Think back in time and you will know that many beauties from years ago only had natural plants and oils to use on their faces and they looked ok!  Natural skincare can give you a healthy and radiant complexion and there is nothing more youthful looking than a good complexion.  The Argan Gold Serum is really powerful with Anti Aging ingredients and it is made from 100% certified Organic Argan oil.

I have tried the 24hours face lift stuff which makes you face stiff and feel uncomfortable and I have tried a load of natural products which were rubbish as they were made by people that had no idea what they were doing.  Elly B is made with many years of expereince and a lot of love and care and thats why it is different.

This brand makes a brilliant Xmas gift as it is Australian made and just what the recessions needs us all to focus on - Australian brands and services.

I strongly recommned a brand called - Elly B Organic Skincare which is made in Australia and this brand is made from Organic and naturally derived ingredients.  If you like a nice creamy cream that feels like it is going to moisturise your skin then you will love this brand.


Give it a try as I think you will be surpised at how good it is, I know I  was.  The cleansers will take off all your makeup and leave your skin feeling moisturised and clean, so you dont need a makeup remover and a cleanser!

Priced from $22.00 up to $66.00 it really is affordable luxury skincare.
check out http://www.discountskincare.com.au/ for the brand!http://www.wholesaleskincare.com.au/
