Switch Up Your Skincare Routine



It's always important to maintain your skin and keep it healthy by regularly cleaning your skin, getting enough beauty sleep and making sure you eat food that contains vitamins e.g fruit and vegetables.

I have to admit I often find myself procrastinating my skincare routine as it can seem dull at times, so I thought it would be a good idea to write a post on a couple of ways you can switch up your skincare routine to add something different to the generic cleanse-tone-moisturise routine.

More and more people are opting for a facial cleansing brush to incorporate into their skincare routine and it is pretty easy to see why. Facial cleansing brushes are 10x more effective at cleansing the skin rather than using your hands which means a cleaner and more clearer complexion. A brand such as Panasonic would be a great place to check out if you have never used a facial cleansing brush before as they are often featured for their innovative and unique products.

Such a tool would help make your skincare routine effortless and more effective, if your curious as to how to use one I found a great article on Allure as well as a guide from Cosmopolitan to getting the best out of a facial cleansing brush.

Another way to switch up your skin is with face masks! They are a great idea as nowadays you can find a face mask for pretty much anything and everything so your honestly spoilt for choice when choosing a face mask. From my experience, I have always loved Lush Fresh Face Masks as they have quite a varied range for different skin types and concerns.

 A good suggestion if your new to face masks is the Don't Look At Me Mask  from Lush. I think it would be super fun to use in your skincare routine as the bright blue colour alone is enough to make you smile and has a very invigorating smell!


Let me know how you like to break the normal routine of your skincare. Is there any interesting tools you incorporate into your skincare? What type of steps do you take in your skincare routine? Have you tried any of the products above or similar? I would love to hear any tips!

Where I'm at with blogging

I can't remember how many times I have said this but welcome back to my blog! At this point it's probably been quite a few times. From the time I started blogging, there have been many points where I ended up just taking spontaneous breaks from blogging, some times these lasted a month, two months or in this case five months. Since starting my job last August, I haven't dedicated much time to my blog unfortunately and that is something I want to change.


Recently I have been re-evaluating a lot of things in my life and one of those was my blog. I had to really think about the direction I want to take it in and whether I even wanted to continue posting. I mean I started this almost 3 years ago and one of the biggest things that occurred to me is what I have done with my blog since.

Thinking about it thoroughly, I realised a lot of things - I want to continue blogging for as long as I can because I do honestly enjoy it and take my blog further then before. Instead of allowing myself to get carried away into everything else and neglecting my blog, I want to invest more and more time.

As I want to keep this 'comeback' post short and sweet, I won't go on any longer but the main point I am trying to get across here is I am going to be much more involved with my blog then previously before. I want to say a big thank you to Tartantights for helping me realise my blogging goals and always being there for me!
