Newly crowned Miss Universe, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, returned to South African soil this week for her official homecoming celebration. The affair took place at the beautiful Old Mutual House in Bishopscourt and came complete with an array of inspiring speakers, a delicious high tea and some wonderful hair and beauty secrets from our very own Miss Universe.
Once again, Avène requires no introduction on my end. Avène is one of my absolute favourite skin-care brands and I have been using the products every day since they first launched in South Africa – that’s nearly three years now. They recently launched two new high coverage suncare products which are not only great for your skin and perfect for summer but also help minimise the environmental impact on our oceans. Find out more below on this amazing new initiative and be sure to enter the competition where you can win three of my favorite Avène summer products!
Finding the perfect foundation is something many of us struggle with and, even after all these years, I am yet to find a formulation I am 100% happy with. However, things took a turn for the best when Revlon launched their Colorstay foundation range which comes in 27 (TWENTY SEVEN!) different shades so you’re bound to find your perfect match.
It should come as no surprise that Eau Thermale Avène is one of my all time favorite skin care brands. I have written about them countless of times, carry at least one of their products in my hand bag (with more in my car) and recommend the brand to anyone who will listen (just try shopping with me at Clicks or Dis-Chem). The brand has recently come out with two new products in their Cleanance range and I am simply loving them both. If you suffer with acne-prone of oily skin, then this one’s for you.
Since I wrote my post about Leaky Gut and how I have been managing it with the help of Dr. Graham at Skin Renewal, I have been getting tons of questions on what I have been doing to decrease my breakouts and keep my skin as clear as possible. While changing my lifestyle and diet played a huge role in easing my symptoms and all-round unhappy skin-tone, I have also been going for regular treatments at Skin Renewal which has made the world of difference in fighting existing spots and lightening stubborn pigmentation. Today’s post is a bit of a mix of my top 5 treatments from the clinic and how they can make the world of difference to you.
