Fashion and Style Police Reviews Yardley & Imperial Leather

On this review post, I am sharing my thoughts on the Yardley & Imperial Leather Products I have tried recently. Starting with the Yardley product, I was in need of a new hand cream so I opted for the Yardley English Lavender Nourishing Hand Cream. This hand cream is light and easily absorbed. It contains floral extracts, shea butter and moisturising oils that leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and delicately fragranced.

How to Quickly Pack for an Overnight Trip

Do you get overwhelmed when it comes to packing for a trip? Do you tend to over-pack? Or pack things you won’t even use on the trip?

I think we’ve all had our fair share of packing woes. And whether you’re going for a day’s trip or a month, it’s good to learn how to pack smart. As always, I put together some handy tips that will help you quickly pack for an overnight trip.

Get the details straight

Before you start packing for your trip, you need to get the basic details about your trip. Where are you traveling to? What are you planning to do during your trip? How’s the weather like in the place you’re traveling to?

These details will help you pack with the right decision on what exactly you should pack with you. It will be extremely helpful to make a checklist of the possible things you’d need as you get the details of your trip straight. The checklist will also be handy when you’re going to pack to travel back home so you’ll have all your things intact.

 

Pack according to outfits

Now that you have a clearer picture of what you’ll be doing on your trip and the weather, the next step is to put together outfits that will match the weather and the occasion. A good trick is to pack clothes of neural colours that you can mix and match with the outfits you’ll bring along.

For an overnight trip, stick to the basics like a pair of jeans, a top or blouse depending on the occasion and a sweater just in case you get cold. Of course, if you’re staying over for the night, then make sure you pack some pajamas.

 

Don’t forget your essentials

There are some key items you must have when you’re traveling no matter the occasion or destination – items like undergarments, toiletries, and personal care products, which include body cream, deodorant and your makeup.

In the rush of packing, these essentials are often forgotten and this can cause a lot of problem, if you leave them behind.

 

Put your electrical accessories together

Although these are essentials as well, I thought they deserved to be put in a category of their own. There’s nothing as upsetting as unintentionally leaving your phone charger behind when you’re on a trip.

While on your trip you may not get the chance to charge your phone, so make sure you also carry a power bank around just in case.

 

Keep each category into smaller bags or pouches

The last thing you want when you’re packing is to be disorganized. Disorganization can slow you down. Since we were able to outline the major class of items you need for an overnight trip, you should have smaller bags to categorize them.  Packing cubes are perfect for this purpose. But if you’re not able to get your hands on packing cubes, a small pouch or ziplock bags would do.

Skincare Changes in Your 30s and How to Deal with Them

I’m sure you must have noticed that your skin is a lot different from it was in your 20s. In your 20s your skin was brighter and definitely more youthful. But as the years go by, the environment and hormonal changes can take a toll on your skin. And that may lead to various skincare changes.

You can combat the changes in your skin with the right skincare routine. Here are some skincare changes you should take note of in your 30s and how to deal with them.

Your face is not as smooth as it used to be

When you’re in your 30s you’ll notice more wrinkles on your forehead, crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes and smile lines near your mouth. The reason is that as you grow older the rate at which your cells turnover slows down. Your skin doesn’t recover as fast as it used to.

 

Solution #1: Moisturize with sunscreen daily

The wrinkles and fine lines are all a sign of premature ageing and nothing beats wrinkles and fine lines as moisturizer. Wrinkles and fine lines are aggravated with exposure to the sun.

Apply sunscreen every day especially before you step out of the house. Make sure that you use a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or above. For better results, you can incorporate skincare products that contain retinol. Retinol helps to increase the production of collagen and improve cell turnover. This will help with your wrinkles and fine lines.

 

Your skin is has a dull appearance

Since your cells’ turnover is slower in your 30s it takes a longer time for new cells to show up on the surface. The dead skin cells hide the new skin cells and that makes your skin look dull.

 

Solution #2: Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliation will help you to get rid of the dead skin cells and reveal the new skin cells. Once the dead skin cells are out of the way, your skin will be brighter and your skin will begin to glow.

There are many healthy exfoliating scrubs out there. But you need to remember to be gentle on your skin. Don’t exfoliate your skin every day, instead restrict it to only 2 or 3 times a week. That will reduce the possibility of irritating your skin.

 

Your skin starts to break out with cystic acne

Remember when you were a teen and you battled with acne and you longed to be an adult so that you’ll never have to deal with acne again? Sadly, acne never goes away. And in your 30s they turn into cystic acne.

As you grow older, your skin gets less resilient to acne and so it takes a longer time for your acne to disappear.

Solution #3: Make acne treatment part of your daily skincare routine

Your skin gets dryer as you age. This makes your skin prone to inflammation and irritation. To keep your acne in check, you have to fight your acne daily with products that contain anti-inflammatory properties. Whether you use a cream, cleanser or toner, make sure that it has anti-inflammatory properties that will combat any sign of acne.
