THE LA MER SPA I’D LIKE TO LIVE IN

Spa days might be my favourite past time. Ok, I say that a lot of things are my favourite things to do, but the experience I am about to describe may just be it.

MANAGING ROSACEA WITH AVÉNE

Since my late twenties I’ve had an abundance of skin issues, mainly on my face. I seemed to have been given a free pass to clear skin in my teens, but as soon as adulthood came calling, it all went south. I developed mild acne and redness about eight or so years ago and tried a lot of things to fix it. I’ve spoken about how I dealt with clearing my skin with professional advice, but I’ve also been seeking…

Finding sunscreen for pale skin always leads to a decision on which brand works best, what SPF you need and if re-application i the sun is needed. When I was in Africa last October, I experienced heat like never before. It was dry heat from a scorching sun that my skin was not suitable for. While I was there, I used P20 which I found brilliant. So I was delighted to partner with them for this blog post, having returned…

MY FAVOURITE SKINCARE PRODUCTS

There are so many skincare products out there for all kinds of skin; my skin is temperamental. One week it’s as clear as it ever was, the next, it’s decided to retaliate against all the makeup I apply. You can’t win sometimes. But thankfully, I’ve had  a lot of great advice over the last year (you can check out some of my skin posts here) from Renew Clinics here in Dublin. I finally found a skincare routine that works for…
