  • Theres an idea floating around that the skin needs to breathe but  this is just a myth.

The skin doesn't breathe and you don't need to let it breathe. Your pores have absolutely nothing to do with breathing and covering them won't suffocate your skin.

The idea that ingredients can suffocate the skin is just very old school thing the one most talked about is silicone which contrary to popular belief is actually really good for the skin.

Silicone gives your skin that really nice slip when applying products not to mention it also protects your skin by forming s barrier again the outside world, but thing can still get through as the shape of silicone is like a big hollow circle with branches so it doesn't suffocate your skin.

If you see people saying you need to let your skin breathe you can now tell them the truth!

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .

  • I know your first instance when it's really sunny is to strip off and enjoy the sun and while it's true you should enjoy the gorgeous days of summer you should be protecting yourself.

While we should be wearing sunscreen everyday it's especially important on beautiful sunny days like these.

You should be applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every 2/3 hours when you're out in direct sunlight.

It's recommended that you use at least 20p piece size of sunscren for your face. 
I absolutely love the @larocheposayuki Anthelios range especially the Fluid version of Anthelios. I also really like @colorescienceuk sunforgettable mineral SPF 50 powder for reapplication when wearing makeup.
