Summer is upon us! And while the UK weather is more than a little hit and miss (we’ve got bright sun today, but rain forecast for tomorrow), those UV rays are still out in force. So if sun protection isn’t already part of your everyday beauty routine, now is the time to add it. Continue reading
Over the years, my skincare regime has played out a little like a soap opera romance plot.
First kiss with Clean & Clear, a fling with Clinique, a casual romance with Environ and a long term relationship with Dermalogica. But finally, I think I’ve found true love, and where I least expected to – the aisles of Boots. Continue reading
