  • When people ask "what do I use for darkness under the eyes" it's can be a complicated issue because it's not always pigmentation.

When dealing with dark circles under the eyes it can be due to the pigmentation in the skin so you will need to look for tyrosinase inhibitors like kojic acid as well as azelaic acid which can brighten an area over time 
Darkness under the eyes can also comes from things like thin skin and lack of fat pads under the eyes, you can essentially see the darkness under the skin through the skin because the orbital area is hollow 
Shadows can be casted by either having too much or not enough fat pad.

This can corrected by using products that thicken the epidermis, glycolic acid is fantastic for this has it thickens the skin over time, there are more permanent fixes as well uses a the use of fillers.

Fillers are injected into the undereye area to simulate the presence of fat pads taking away the darkness. .

  • *GIFTED I love the formula of this sunscreen but I'm not too keen on how it's marketed as if somehow it's better than others because it's "clean". The whole "clean" skincare movement is something I dont agree with because it's not based on anything scientific and if I'm honest i feel like it uses people's fears against them in the sense that people have such an unfounded fear of toxic, dangerous ingredients in skincare.

I just really don't like when brands claim their products are clean as if other products are dirty and dangerous which just isn't the case.

This is an inorganic filter (physical) SPF 30 which uses 22% Zinc Oxide which is broad spectrum it's not more effective or cleaner than organic (chemical) filters.

Besides the way it's marketed I really like the actual product, the stuff inside. It goes on really well and spreads easily despite being silicone free. It also layers well under makeup without changing the colour of your makeup.

I haven't tried on deeper skin tones but I doubt this sunscreen will be suitable because of the high zinc oxide content which tends to look really ashy on deeper skin tones.

I just want to say as a last thing don't be afraid of organic (chemical) sunscreens, they aren't dangerous they aren't bad for you and just because something is inorganic (physical) it doesn't mean it's somehow cleaner. 
Sunscreens are put through an incredible amount of testing to make sure they are safe, effective and fit for purpose. Don't fall for the fearmongering.

  • 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.
