WHAT'S IN MY BEAUTY CUPBOARD?

My daily beauty routine is very minimalistic. I try to use products as natural as possible, although a couple of products I use aren't. I love to keep my face well hydrated as I have normal to dry skin. Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with face mists, in particular, Jurlique 'Rose Water' or the 'Lavender Mist'. Face mists are the best when flying or in air-conditioned rooms to keep your skin hydrated. 

I am also currently obsessed with the Passionate Skin Food (non vegan version) for my body. I sometimes use almond oil or rose hip oil for the body as well. I find oils soak into my skin the best and leave my skin feeling soft and hydrated. 

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

For my face during the day, I love to mix oils with my day cream. My favourite oils are Goldfadden MD 'Fleuressence' which I mix with Tatcha 'The Silk Cream' - both available from MECCA. 

My favourite eye creams are Kate Sommerville 'Line Release' and Goldfadden MD 'Bright Eyes' - both available from MECCA. At night I use Trilogy 'Rosehip Oil'.

For exfoliation, I LOVE the Dr Dennis Gross 'Exfoliation Pads'. I use them every few days to get rid of dead skin and dirt.

EVERY GIRL LOVES A FACE MASK

I use Glamglow 'Flashmud Brightening Treatment' which you use over three nights. This mask leaves your skin so bright and glowing. For ultra hydration try to the HylaActive '3D Sculptured Mask' once a week!

DON'T FORGET TO SPF

I am currently using Ultraceuticals 'Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser'.

I am quite tanned naturally on my body, but I always try to keep my fave out of the sun. 'The Salon' by Bec Lissa is my go to for a tan top up and lash tint - I have been seeing her for years!

THE BEST PRODUCTS FOR MY BUTT

Frank Body 'Coconut Coffee Scrub' followed by Trilogy 'Rosehip Oil' are both AMAZING for stretch marks. In the shower, just scrub in circular motion and leave for about two minutes.

NATURAL DEODORANTS

The BEST natural deodorant that I have used is Black Chicken 'Axilla Deodorant Paste'.

TREAT YOURSELF TO A FACIAL

Face Media Spa in Bondi Beach is my go to. All of the ladies who work there are so friendly and you leave with skin literally GLOWING. When you arrive, you are greeted with a beautiful herbal tea by The Beauty Chef and once finished your treatment awaiting you is a delicious protein ball and beauty shot also by The Beauty Chef. The treatments at Face Medi Spa are endless although I always choose the Hydration facial with the LED light.

I recently visited Cosmo Clinic in Double Bay and had the Skin Needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (which you can read all about here).

I have honestly never had a better result from a facial. It was quite painful at first but you can opt for numbing cream or gass during the treatment. My skin is left feeling so plump and any scars I have had on my face have faded dramatically - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
