Less is more? (with poll)

So, this is a bit different from my usual posts no beauty recipes this time sorry guys!

I was wondering what everyone thought about make-up, and is less really more? Do some people need as much make-up as they put on their faces? And also I was thinking about all the chemicals that cosmetics contain. I think  most people don’t  realise how many chemicals (many that have not been tested for their long-term effects!) are in their beauty products and that some of them are dangerous and contain carcinogens (agent that causes cancer.) I have NO idea what most of those long chemical names mean but yet I still put them on my face and trust these companies not to poison me. I do sometimes Google  these chemicals out of curiosity and find myself shocked by some of them. However, I really do enjoy wearing make-up but sometimes I think am I wearing too much of it?

Please share your views on the poll below about what you think!

Much love! J

7 Ways To Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil you say? Hmmm….

This product has been around for centuries and has always been known to have great benefits for our health. So, why spend loads of money on different beauty products when you have this 7-in-1 !

1. MOISTURISER

Putting olive oil on your face might make you feel like a salad but it’s unbelievably good for your skin. It contains Vitamin E (protects your skin from damage) and other antioxidants that help to protect and hydrate your skin.

2. MAKE-UP REMOVER

If you just realised you have no make-up removers in the house go to your kitchen and find this stuff! It’s so good for your skin unlike those beauty store  make-up removers that are full of chemicals, and it works! (best for eye make-up)

3. CUTICLE OIL

Olive oil will help repair the damage and also moisturise.

4. SHAVING

Your face, your legs and wherever else you are hairy… Olive oil helps to achieve a smooth and close shave!

5. HAIR REPAIR

It acts as a deep conditioner repairing those broken ends and gets rid of any frizzyness.

6. SOOTHING

Because of its healing attributes olive oil soothes chapped lips, rashes, skin conditions and sun burn.

7. MAKE A SCRUB!

Just mix it in with some fine grain sea salt and exfoliate to achieve beautiful and soft skin.

I hope you try some of these and let me know how it works out for you! If you do, make sure you use extra virgin olive oil as it is the purest. 

Best way to curl your hair! (includes step by step video)

 

This is such a quick and easy way to curl your hair, I can’t believe I only recently found out about it! If you do try it I recommend you do it with slightly damp hair and I mean to the point where your hair looks dry but feels a little damp still. That way your curls will hold better the next day. I hope you like the step by step video/slideshow that I made to show you how to do it. Enjoy!
