5 Tips To Getting Clear Skin

Having clear skin is something we all (men and women) want to achieve.  I think for me it's one of the most important parts of the facial feature.  When I see someone with clear skin I'm instantly in awe of them and find it so attractive.  But the reality of actually having clear skin can be hard for a lot of us.

The funny thing is, it's not actually too hard to achieve with these simple steps.  Just making a few changes to your every day routine can really help you on the road to clearer skin.  Not only that, but it will give you such a confidence boost and you may feel you don't even have to wear so much makeup which is definitely something I'd be happy with.

Drink More Water

Drinking more water is going to keep your skin hydrated and plump.  It will wash out any toxins that cause blemishes.  I try to drink 2 litres a day at least.  You can mix it up by adding squash or herbal tea bags.

Eat Your Vegetables

Especially greens because they are full of antioxidants which are great at combating bacteria known to cause spots and acne.  Getting your 5 a day has so many health benefits.  I try to have a piece of fruit or veg with every meal.

Always Remove Makeup

Sometimes we can be lazy and feel super tired but you must remove your makeup before going to bed because not only will it cause blemishes but it will also aid the aging process, ahh!  If you feel too sleepy just grab a quick makeup wipe.

Change Pillow Covers

This is something I never really thought of until it came to my attention about a year ago but think how dirty our pillow cases get and then we put our faces on that..  It's a bit backwards really if you've just washed your face so make sure to change them once a week.

Use A Face Mask

As well as cleansing, toning and moistursing once or twice a day you should try to get a face mask in there once or twice a week too.  You can find different ones tailored for your skin's needs and I particularly love the Lush ones.

Do you have any tips for getting clear skin?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
