Smoothie your Way to smoother skin

why oh why are the chocolates after Christmas never-ending… I can’t get away from them, and it is reeking havoc with my skin! So I’ve turned to my trusted detox fix… A smoothie-a-day keeps those spots away!

but of course it would not be lovesian if I didn’t dish the dirt on my skin smoothie secrets…

image

Some of my top Skin perfecting ingredients:

  •  Berries– contains lots of anti-oxidants which can help protect your skin from cellular damage, which can cause wrinkling & age spots
  • Almond Milk– lower in fat, so a better alternative to cows milk. Also containing Vitamin E which helps promote healthy skin growth
  • Spinach– a potent anti-oxidant & good source of iron
  • Udo’s Choice Beyond Greens– a well being & energy powder formula containing a wide range of greens, high in fibre & protein
  • Pineapple– great for digestion (which helps you process all the goodness even better) & makes the taste just a touch sweeter
  • Acai– again packed with tons of anti-oxidants, acai berries help eliminate toxins
  • Honey– this is a natural humectant, which means it both attracts moisture & helps lock it in (exactly what your skin needs) I opt for Manuka Honey, as it possesses several healing properties as well as honeys usual properties
  • Citrus Fruits–  containing high vitamin C levels, this helps stop inflammation of the skin, tightens skin & prevents wrinkles

Add some of these ingredients (or all of them) alongside your other favourite smoothie usuals… & let the goodness go to work!

Some of my top Smoothie tips:

  • Freeze your fruit before blending- this makes your smoothie come out all thick and icey (Yum)
  • Add ice – for an icey crunch
  • Add fat free yoghurt to thicken it up
  • Use pineapple, bananas, & honey, to sweeten it up, especially if your adding loads of veggies in that don’t always taste as nice

Im starting a 2 week Smoothie Challenge to Detox my body from all the naughty eating… Try & detox with me & have a smoothie a day!

Remember you ARE WHAT YOU EAT!!

Lovesian visits Thailand Pt.2

As I sit here with a Hot Cuppa in miserable London.. Reminiscing on a time not too long ago- & now wishing I was back in beautiful Thailand, I thought what a perfect time to write my ‘Thailand pt.2’

My little Asian adventure continues into the amazing Thai Island of…

Koh Samui

image

Yes… This is the amazing view I woke up to every morning whilst staying at the to die for Mantra Samui Hotel, which is by far my favourite hotel. I honestly thought I had withdrawal symptoms as I suddenly come down with a very bad headache leaving… Take me back already!

image

So.. If you want sun, sea, sand & cocktails- alongside beautiful views, food, people & of course a nice bit of Thai culture, plus a full body massage… Just incase it all gets a bit much- then Koh Samui is the perfect place to be!

Radiant skin… Radiant you!

After just getting back from an amazing holiday ( which I constantly posted pics to keep you all updated ) you wanted to know how I got that radiant look with no makeup! & it wouldn’t be lovesian if I didn’t dish the dirt on my skin secrets! So here it is my top 10 tips to beautiful radiant skin…

1. USE A GREAT MOISTURISER! A good quality moisturiser will make the world of difference, it will help guard your skin from harsh weather & take care of it for the future. Once your skin is well hydrated you will get a bit of colour back, which tends to fade in these cold winter months.

I recommend: Clarins- HydraQuench Cream / Olay Total Effects 7 Daily Moisturiser

imageimage

2. EXFOLIATE ONCE A WEEK! Exfoliating takes away all that dead, dull skin which leaves skin more radiant & much softer. Be careful not to over exfoliate as scrubbing your skin too much will leave you pale and possibly irritate your skin- once a week is perfect.

I recommend: St. Ives- Apricot Scrub / Clinique- Turnaround instant facial masque

3. DOUBLE UP ON YOUR SERUMS! What most people don’t realise is if you tend to sleep on one side, then your serum will rub off on to your pillow throughout the night- so a good idea is to double up on your serum on that side of your face. Serums should be used alongside with your normal moisturiser.

I recommend: Clinique- Smart Serum

image

4. BE DELICATE TO YOUR EYES! The dreaded eye bags & covering them up might make you want to scrape consealor all over them- but make sure any eye products or makeup you apply is dabbed on gently, as the skin under your eyes is so sensitive that long term you might make the skin sag or loose elasticity. Try and work from the inside of the eye outwards.

5. KEEP IT SIMPLE! Stick to the same products & don’t over do it. It’s easy to get carried away with all the new amazing products- especially as Christmas is fast approaching, but don’t introduce too many new products at once. As a Blogger I’m constantly trying new things, however I try and make it a rule to introduce only one new facial product to my skin a month as my skin can be quite sensitive- in general I stick to my well tested skincare regime. Try and stick to the same brand- for example use the same branded cleanser & toner as they are made to compliment each other.

6. DRINK WATER! Hydration is key- I spoke about this earlier with your moisturiser, but getting hydration from within is even better!! It will help your skin in more ways than one, & even helps your eye bags and that tired look. I recommend getting away from tap water and sticking to the bottled stuff!

image

7. TREAT YOURSELF TO A FACIAL! Having a facial is brilliant for getting deep into your pores and the facial massage that goes along with it is great for simulating the circulation & blood flow- which in turn creates more radiant skin. You will find that even the best of skin may slightly break out after a facial, as your body is releasing a lot of the toxins or those hidden under the skin spots, but once that clears your skin will be alot better so it is well worth it.

8. EAT WELL! You are what you eat… It is true & if you’ve been a bit naughty it will always show in your skin, so every now and then I do a detox, just to get rid of all the impurities & mon- fri I try and keep a healthy diet & be good. If you can, try & eat a lot more Akaline foods- which will help the imbalance that most of us have in our diets.

9. LET YOUR SKIN BREATH! If you can cut down on the foundation & take a break from makeup every now and then, then do it. Makeup inevitably blocks your pores, and although most of us don’t feel confident without it, the better your skin becomes the more you will love your skin without makeup too. So please don’t wear your full face to the gym or when working out.

10. ALWAYS REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP! Don’t leave your makeup on over night, always cleanse and tone your face. Stick to your nightly routine- even after a crazy night out. Also make sure that you don’t just take your makeup off quickly, but that you take it off properly.

So now you have my top 10 radiant skin tips… Use them wisely! & enjoy your radiant skin!

My Face-Chic is all Clinique!

image

I am constantly being asked “what do you use on your skin?…” Well it’s simple- because it is all Clinique. I have tried A LOT if skin care brands out there, so I felt it was time I shared my favourite one & why. When I first switched over to Clinique I was a little worried as I had been using all these well known amazingly-expensive brands that had brought me up in a little rash- which for someone who gets complimented on my skin- was my worst nightmare. I was desperate for something that was better for sensitive skin & of course Clinique’s allergy tested/ fragrance free motto attracted me, & turned out to be the perfect thing for me to try- in matter of days my rash cleared up & I’ve been using it ever since!

Now on a lot of my posts I tend to say well this product works for me etc. but actually I’m going to put that aside today because Clinique has a product variety of 4 different skin types giving you a specified daily skin routine for your exact skin type! You can’t go wrong when a brand creates a line of products that they have altered to suit every woman!

 

Now I could probably sit here and tell you every Clinique product I use, but I’ll give you a quick run down of my favourites!

 

image

 The 3-Step System: I use this daily- it’s great because you can buy these 3 products specific to your skin type- cleaning/ cleansing/ moisturising your skin makes all the difference. For me this is completely worth the money as it actually works, and once you have you basic skin regime sorted everything else tends to fall in place- but don’t just take my word for it, ask for a starter pack instead of buying the full size product you will get a miniature version (that surprisingly will last a month) for only £20- & trust me after this you won’t want to go back.

image

The Clinique Smart Serum: does everything from changing the appearance of uneven skin tone, wrinkles, lines, firming & radiance- it’s one of those wow products. This product I ended up buying because My Clinique girl recommended it- & again I was shocked at how much I could notice a difference in radiance and even skin tone- love this product! When applying just use a small amount on your forehead, top of cheeks, chin, & under chin, then gently blend it all around- using upward motion strokes for under chin- pat it all down gently, and remember to still moisturise.

image

 The turnaround instant facial: this product is my most recent addition, it is basically a quick 5 minute facial mask that you can do a couple  times a week- leaves your skin radiant, fresh & exfoliated. Mine lasts quite long as I only use it once a week to scrub out any blackheads & give my skin that glow it needs with winter fast approaching! Unlike most masks/exfoliates this does not irritate your skin and leave it all red, in fact the glow you get is pretty instant.

image

I’ve been recommended some more amazing Clinique products that I can’t wait to try- the new sonic system cleansing brush, even better eyes dark circle corrector & makeup removal. Once I get my hands on these I will let you all know what I think!
