Beauty Advent Calendars

I received two Beauty Advent Calendars this year and I am eager to share my thoughts on them. Advent Calendars are a great way to countdown to Christmas. It adds to the hype and festive season, and I love that about them. Growing up, there was nothing like stocking fillers or Advent Calendars. We had Christmas gifts, loads of them, but the concept of having a gift a day in December was not known as far as I know. But I like this concept and I am happy my kids would experience this.

Sleek MakeUP  A Gift A Day Advent Calendar

I love the packaging of this beauty calendar. Sleek MakeUP did a great job on it! The gold, black and pink look fab! The contents are as amazing as the packaging. I like the fact of grabbing a Sleek treat a day, and I am looking forward to tearing the boxes everyday (until I run out) this December.

I have had to upgrade my beauty storage at home with a bigger version because my previous storage was on the brink of explosion!

How to Prevent Sleep Lines

Put your hands up in the air if every time you wake up in the morning to look in the mirror, you see sleep lines and wonder how those got there!

Although sleep is meant to be refreshing and really good for the skin it is possible to see sleep lines on your face. This is due to a couple of factors. Sleep lines happen when you rest your head on a pillow or patterned surface and the imprint of the lines remains on your face when you wake up. The reason is simple: the weight of you head is pressed on that surface for a very long time.

The good news is that there is a remedy. Here are some ways you can prevent sleep lines.

 

Silk or satin pillows cases

Since pillows are the main reasons we get sleep lines then it’s a good idea to start tackling it from there. The fabric of the pillow when creased can cause sleep lines. Switch from cotton pillow cases to silk or satin pillow cases. This is because the silk or satin fabric doesn’t crunch up like the cotton pillow cases do.

 

Sleep on your back

If you’re not within reach of a silk or satin pillow case, then sleeping on your back is the next best option. When you sleep on your side you face touches the pillow case with all the creases on it and you get sleep lines. Sleeping on your back helps you prevent your face from touching the pillows. It may take a little practice especially if you are the type who likes sleeping on your side but it is worth a try.

 

Get the circulation going

When you have sleep lines, one of the best ways to get rid of them is to give the affected areas a good massage. The massage will help increase the circulation of blood going to the affected area and as you massage, the sleep lines disappear. It may take a little while but when you will surely see a change in the appearance of the sleep lines on your face.

Exercise is also another way to get the circulation going. A good cardio workout can help to increase the circulation which will reduce the appearance of sleep lines and it also gives you a good excuse to get started on having a morning workout routine.

Moisturize before going to sleep

Every skin care routine requires that you moisturize. Aside from keeping your skin well hydrated and supple, it helps minimize the presence of sleep lines as well. Night creams work great for sleep lines but if you’re more of a fan of natural products then I recommend you go with coconut oil. A pea size drop of coconut oil will be just right.

To increase the efficacy, massage the coconut oil in your skin in circular motions. Coconut oil contains a lot of beneficial properties for your skin and it will make you skin look healthy and give it a lovely glow when you wake up in the morning.

Great Autumn Products

I have been busy trying some great autumn products this last few weeks. From lovely scented candles to amazing skincare products. Here are a few of them that rocked my world.

 

Yankee Candles

If you know me well enough, you would know I am a sucker for candles. I have candles in almost every room in my house. And I tend to favour Yankee Candles above all others. I can always bet on them smelling great and looking lush. They are also great as Christmas gifts for candle lovers. There is nothing I love more than wrapping myself up in my blanket, burning a candle and watching some Netflix. It is the best thing ever!
