the beauty post | the skincare tag

hello loveys!
 i'm currently unbelievably busy in the middle of my first week back at uni so decided to do a quick tag post today. a big thankyou to chanelle for tagging me to do this post, if you haven't already go and check out her blog here - you won't regret it!

now i must admit before i start, i am the world's worst person when it comes to skincare - i really don't do as much as i should but i prefer an extra 10 minutes in bed over the whole cleanse/tone/moisturise thing. slap me on the hand for i have beauty-sinned.

describe your skin care routine in 5 words;
lazy, quick, easy, affordable, basic.

what's your skin type?
i have combination skin - normal everywhere except the t-zone which can get oily during the day.

top blemish zapper?
just having a healthy diet - i can notice a huge difference in my skin if i have a particularly heavy night drinking  alcohol and not drinking enough water. i also eat loads of fruit and veg and keep my sweet tooth under control (most of the time).

face wipes - yay or nay?
both! i can sometimes be really lazy and use wipes to take my makeup off - but only every so often. they are also really good to use when you make a mistake when you're doing your makeup - i keep one handy in case i get blobs of mascara everywhere.

toner - yay or nay?
i used a toner for a year or so and really didn't see any difference in my skin so stopped and haven't been back to it since. however, since starting this blog i have read so many people saying that having a skin care routine is important so i might have to go out and get back on the wagon!

high-end skin care or high-end makeup?
make up! i have found so many skin care gems on the high street that works a treat for me personally and have found a lovely little niche which keeps my skin nice and clear. i have had the same routine for a good few years now and wouldn't want to change it up until it stops working for me (which i hope it never does!)

what is the most unusual skin care product you've tried?
i did once make a face mask at home out of all of these weird ingredients - i actually ended up eating most of it which wasn't really what it was intended for! 

tell us your top skin care tip;
basically just drink as much water as you can - skin becomes clearer and plumper and much more radiant when you drink it, and water is so cheap so you might as well!



after the amount if times i have written the word 'skin' in this post, this word now seems completely weird and quite a horrible word to me! i can safely say i don't like the word skin anymore
