5 Skincare Swaps You Need To Make This Winter

While one part of the world is gearing up for summer, we are preparing for winter. It’s officially time to accept that the temperature is dropping which means snuggling, endless cups of tea and switching up the skincare routine. During the colder season I always layer on heavier skin products to avoid that ‘tight’ feeling on the skin.

My main skincare mission during the winter season is to protect my skin from loss of hydration that can lead to cracks and inflammation. If you’re someone with dry or combination skin type, like me. Here are some great ways to combat dehydration and dullness, by switching up your skincare routine, by using gentler and hydrating cleansers rather than exfoliating ones.

It’s a Grey Matter: The Dos and Donts of Athleisure

Athleisure is the latest fashion trend that is taking over the world and is easily become a crowd favourite for all fashion lovers. It is a fun, fashionable and comfortable style to rock and play around with as a casual look. The style athleisure is all about transforming activewear clothing into everyday outfits that are perfect for the office, lunch dates or for running errands.

I am not really a girl who follows trend, but some trends are undeniably hard not to follow especially when they fit perfectly with my everyday life. I can’t stop wearing my grey two-piece that was a gift from my father while he was on a business trip in China. The shorts are so comfortable to work out in and as soon as I’m done with my daily workout, I simply throw on the top and the look is performance wear ready for the day ahead. To make the look more fashionable I pair it up with a leather jacket and a simple watch, I don’t think there is a need to over accessorise with this type of style.

That 70s Style

So this season flared jeans are back in style and to be honest I have never really been a huge fan of the flare but it has somehow grown on me and I am now officially obsessed with the style! I even purchased my very first pair and it has quickly become my latest favourite item in my closet, followed closely by my orange Ted Baker coat (check out the post on it). Thank goodness we have left the skinny jeans craze and we are now moving onto better and more chic denim, the 70s style has never looked so good.

Take Care of Your Crown

My hair and I have been through a rollercoaster of a relationship. I have dyed it, cut it, relaxed it – resulting it to become brittle and weak in some cases. This has helped me learn and understand what’s good and bad for my hair. First of all I have stopped using any processed hair products and stuck to purely natural products.
