*Affiliate link.

Hey beauty and skincare lovers! Hope you are having a great start to the week. I am a huge fan of Lavender Oil. It is one of my favourite essential oils. I use it pretty much everyday and the benefits of this amazing oil are too numerous to list here but I will try my best to mention a couple. For those who have never used Lavender Oil, it is an essential oil derived from the lavender plant. This essential oil can be used on the hair and skin, and it can also be taken orally and breathed in through aromatherapy. For this post, I will be focusing on the benefits of lavender oil for skin only.

Combats skin issues

Lavender oil can prevent and heal acne by unclogging pores and reducing inflammation. Like all other essential oils, this lavender oil has to be diluted with a carrier oil. My preferred carrier oil is coconut oil. Diluting lavender oil and coconut oil creates the perfect facial oil to help you combat acne, pimples, spots and other skin issues. You ca also dilute lavender oil with a carrier oil to create a facial toner.

Skin lightening oil

If you are dealing with hyperpigmentation, lavender oil may be all you need to help you lighten the dark areas on your skin. As always, dilute a few drops of lavender oil with a carrier oil of your choice and apply it daily to your area.

Anti-ageing oil

Lavender oil is great for combating wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It contains antioxidants which are great for shielding the face from free radicals. To get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, dilute a few drops of lavender oil with coconut oil, and apply the mixture to your face twice a day.

Sunburn treatment

Lavender oil has anti-inflammatory abilities which are great for the treatment of sun burn. To do this, combine 3 drops of lavender oil with 3 drops of coconut oil, and apply the mixture three times a day to the affected area. You can also put the mixture in a spray bottle and apply on the affected area three times a day until the burn heals.

How to get rid of dull skin

If you skin is looking dull, you may be wondering how to go about waking it up. Many of us will suffer from dull skin every now and again.

Relax

Beauty glows from within. Relaxing is a must if you want your skin looking shiny and smooth. I know it can be very difficult to relax with the uncertainty going on worldwide now, but relax you must or your skin will start to look dull. Rather than spending a fortune on skincare products, make sure your wellbeing is intact, your skin will thank you for it.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin regularly is one of the easiest ways to get rid of dull looking skin. It is best to exfoliate the skin once a week to achieve the desired results. Exfoliating regularly gets rid of dead skin cells, and reveals a layer of skin that just glows. You can use exfoliating scrubs, gloves, body brushes and pumice stones to exfoliate your skin.

Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise

Cleansing your face every night will get rid of dull skin. Sleeping with makeup on will damage your skin in the long run. To ensure your skin glows, you should cleanse daily with a good cleanser, use a toner to tighten the pores and moisturise to keep your face hydrated. These steps need to be followed every night no matter how tired you are.

Diet

Ensuring you eat a balanced diet and drink the recommended daily intake of water will help your skin glow from inside out. This is an easy tip but many of us do forget it. Make sure every meal you eat or drink feeds your skin the nutrients it needs to shine.

Facial massage

A good facial massage will help you get rid of dull facial skin.Facial massages help stimulate blood flow, which will add some good old radiance and plump the skin. You can easily give your face a massage while applying your moisturiser.

Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen protects your delicate skin from the rays of the skin. It is important to make sure your skin is protected everyday and not just in the summer. Nothing else will work for you if your skin is continuously exposed to the rays of the sun without sunscreens.

Beauty Muse: Janet Jackson

I grew up listening to Janet Jackson’s soulful voice on the radio. Her voice is unmistakable. I always know a Janet Jackson’s track once I hear it. Apart from being a talented singer and dancer, she is also a beauty muse. It is hard to believe this stunning woman is 53 years old. She could easily pass for a woman in her early 40s. I love her facial features. She is blessed with a spotless skin and amazing physique. I would love to be a fly on her wall to spy on how she takes care of her skin. Her skincare secrets would be wanted by many.

Janet Jackson is a natural. She is one of the lucky people to look amazing with or without makeup. I did a bit of digging and found some of her beauty/skincare tips from the lips of her makeup artist – Preston Meneses. Here they are –

Makeup Tips

Citing “a little contouring on the cheeks”, “a wash of bronze over the eyes” and some face-flattering winged eyeliner as the reasons behind her youthful appearance, the long-term employee of the singer stressed the transformative power of make-up.

Janet Jackson’s makeup is always looking amazing. Preston Meneses does a terrific job on her. It would be lovely to watch him do his thing on her face.

What does beauty look like to Janet Jackson

“It’s vulnerability. Beauty is power. It’s confidence. It’s happiness. It’s seeing the goodness in the soul. It’s spirituality. It’s being selfless and what you do for others before doing for yourself.”

I agree  Beauty is a lot more than the skin and what we see with our naked eyes.
I would have loved to learn more about Jackson’s beauty and skincare secrets. She is a true beauty; definitely a beauty muse and I am a huge fan.
