Beauty Muse: Jourdan Dunn

The gorgeous British model – Jourdan Dunn is the Beauty Muse this month. I have been a huge fan of Jourdan Dunn for many years now and I think she is a talented beauty. Her skincare routine and beauty tips always interest me because she has a flawless skin and looks amazing. I found an interview this beauty muse had with Glamour UK, where she shared her skincare routine with the team. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On making her own rose water and face mask

“I actually make my own mixture of rose water, witchhazel and aloe vera, this is to hydrate my skin. Then, twice a week, I’ll make my own face mask at home,” she says. “I’ll mix up yoghurt, honey and a few teaspoons of turmeric – it’s my favourite spice as it’s anti-inflammatory and great for acne, dull skin and tired eyes. Do it on a night in and double cleanse afterwards, as it can stain!”

I love the sound of her homemade rose water and face mask. The ingredients are easy to get, so I may play around with them and see if I can create my own rose water and face mask. Dunn has a gorgeous skin, so the products must be good. Do you make your own skincare products?

Her thoughts on Korean skincare products

“K-Beauty is everywhere now! I love that it’s spread to the UK over the past year. I love the face masks, there’s so many different ones using natural ingredients like Ginseng and Aloe Vera with the aim of moisturising, hydration, toning! The list is endless.”

I have used a few Korean skincare products and my experience was good with all of them. The Korean face masks also work great on my skin. I love them. Have you tried Korean skincare products?

Cold weather brings the need to change your footwear for activities and the weather itself. You do not want to sacrifice outdoor fun by avoiding going out in the cold altogether. Below are simplified winter foot care tips that will help you keep your feet and ankle warm in the harsh cold weather.

Keep your feet clean

It is crucial to take care of your feet to ensure your toenails, fungus, and other unpleasant things are kept at bay. You can do this using soap and water to clean your feet. Additionally, you can visit your doctor to get a rough idea of how to clean your feet.

Get the right pair of shoes

Trips and falls are a common cause of injuries, especially during winter. Accordingly, winter falls often cause foot injuries, including broken heels or toes, and ankle sprains. Therefore, it is essential to get low-heeled shoes that have traction soles to avoid slipping on ice.

Winter shoes should also ensure your feet and ankle are warm by offering insulation against the harsh weather. You should consider Balenciaga shoes that provide comfort, insulation, and protection from winter-related injuries.

Ensure your feet are warm and dry

Cold feet can lead to the growth of fungus, which can harm your overall health. Try to get yourself some moisture-wicking socks to keep your feet warm and dry from internal dampness caused by sweat.

Water-resistant socks and shoes will also help you ward off external winter elements that can lead to dampness. If possible, ensure you wear appropriate socks and shoes as standard practice during the winter weather period.

You can also insert foot warmers in your shoes to offer an extra layer of protection against wetness and the cold.

Additional footwear tips

If you want to keep your feet and ankle warm during the winter months, ensure your shoes and boots are:

  • Warm

Do not spend extended periods outdoors if your shoes and boots are not warm enough.

  • Appropriate for outdoor activities

You will want a comfortable, breathable pair of shoes once you are indoors. Accordingly, when going out on the ice or during winter sports, you need your shoes or boots to offer traction and keep your feet and ankle safe from injuries.

  • Changed when wet

You will need to change your shoes or boots once they get damp from the winter cold.

  • Fitted and comfortable

All winter footwear should fit your feet and be able to prevent snow from entering into your shoes, making you wet and cold.

The Bottom Line

Taking care of your feet and ankle during winter months ensures you get warmth and alleviate foot pain resulting from cold-related injuries. Along with these tips, ensure you take care of your feet and ankle all year long.

 

 

 

 

The Benefits of Aloe Vera on the Skin

Aloe Vera is a miracle wonder plant. I love it so much! It is just amazing. I have used Aloe Vera on and off for many years now, and I am always blown away by how effective it is. Back then, I extracted the gel directly from the plant and applied it straight to my hair. I did that for years and my hair was so healthy. It is one of those natural ingredients I have always enjoyed using. I am gradually incorporating more and more natural products into my life, and Aloe Vera is one of my current favourites.

I started using Aloe Vera on my hair to help it stay healthy. I have also recently started using it on my skin and it has changed my skin for the better. Aloe Vera has been so good to my skin that I can’t imagine not using it anymore. I am currently using this Aloe Vera Moisturising Lotion by Forever Living and it is so good. You can read the full review of the lotion if you missed the product review post.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera on the Skin

Here are the top 5 benefits of Aloe Vere on the skin –

Soothes sunburn

Aloe Vera is great for soothing sunburn because it has cooling properties and is anti-inflammatory. It is a natural remedy for sunburn and helps heal the skin quickly.

Moisturises the skin

It works great as a skin moisturiser. It can be tricky to apply since it usually does not absorb into the skin quickly. However, once it is applied properly, it leaves the skin moisturised and hydrated. It also unclogs the pores and leaves the skin soft and supple.

Fights anti-ageing

Aloe Vera creams and lotions work great for dealing with signs of ageing. The products leave you looking younger by reducing and preventing signs of skin ageing.

Lightens blemishes

Aloe Vera gradually lightens blemishes on the skin. I have noticed a massive difference on my skin since I started using this Aloe Vera Moisturising lotion.

Reduces acne

Another great benefit of Aloe Vera is that it reduces acne. The antimicrobial properties in it treat the pimples. It is also antiseptic, which also helps. Aloe Vera also works as an astringent that helps reduce the size of pores, gets rid of excess sebum, microbes, and dirt.
