Please remember this is a general overview of typical dehydrated skin..I'm not a dermatologist but i am sharing all that i know :) if you have any specific probs just email me!
This skin type is commonly misdiagnosed as oily/combination. I have to say i believe combination skin is myth and a generalised term to package a product, if your serious about diagnosing your skin a therapst will always find the reason as to why the skin appears combination...unless your in your teens and hormones or medication play a part in oil secretion then there is always a reason for an oily t-zone..usually dehydration. confused, i was at first?? let me explain.....
I really hope this helps, i will do another skin type soon :) xx
- Mac studio tech nc37
- Ysl touch eclat number 2
- Nars laguna bronzer
- Mac harmony blush
- Mac paint pot bare study
- Mac glamour check all over lid, then soften and smudge with a blending brush (looks scary at first lol)
- Mac gold stroke pigment pressed on top of glamour check on inner half and onto apple of the eye
- Mac carbon gently applied in the crease
- Mac retrospeck blended up to brow bone as a highlight
- Maybelline express khol, with mac carbon smudged along to set and soften the line
- Mac zoom lash mascara

This look requires lots of blending and looked gorgeous but my camera doesn't do it justice :(
Miss selfridge leggings
Newlook jumper dress..i have a new love for navy at the mo and i love the bead detail :)
the funny thing is i don't even have bad skin…but i feel my skin looks dull and lifeless without foundation!
For once my skin glowed on its own…amazing!
The product range is called Environ..anyone heard of it? (i hadn't) the rep came in and showed us unbelievable pictures of peoples skin before and after..i was blown away and agreed to be the salon guinea pig :) I wanted to see if it would give my skin the glow i crave and get rid of the bumps on my forehead!
I have been using the Avst moisturiser for one month and all i can say is WOW! My skin glows, and i haven't had a breakout in ages…it must be the moisturiser as i haven't changed anything else in my regime! i really am amazed!
Now for the boring infor bit:
Environ is a south african company and here's what's in it that makes its smell so grim lol:
Retinyl Palmitate (A)
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (C)
Rosemary Leaf Extract
So this is me on my dog walk..with no foundation..amazing achievement for me lol!! Also another achievement..wearing ugg boots...i resisted them for sooo long as i think they make my feet look ugly but you know theyre very pratical for dog walks...even if i do look like a telletubbie!! x
Yes i look like an alien :)
Its all in the name of beauty…just a quick review on the body shops seaweed mask!
After searching for the instructions for a good 10 mins..i discovered them by peeling back two layers of plastic on the tub..v confusing lol!! I know lots of people had a hard time finding them too!
Anyway..i cleansed and exfoliated (this is must before applying a mask..it enables the product to penetrate the skin, dead surface skin cells are a no-no!) then applied the mask.
When it first went on i will admit it stung a little..i was surprised as i certainly do not have sensitive skin! However this soon wore off and the mask began to harden…don't you just love pulling faces when this happens?
After washing it off i must say my blackheads on my nose looked noticeably clearer…and id say my pores definatly looked more refined. My skin felt super soft too…
I would definatly recommend this product to people with oily skins..I'm going to use this just on my tea zone from now on as i found it a little to stripping on the old cheeks!
anyone else share my love for this product??
