For the summer I generally like to keep my skin care routine very basic and simple. I find my skin becomes more oily within the summer months and I don’t want to add to this by applying loads of products to my skin.
Without fail I’ll wash my face with a cleanser both morning and night. I make sure I give a thorough wash and make sure the cleanser also goes down my neck as I do apply makeup there. My favourite cleanser is The Body Shop Tea Tree cleanser. I have been using this for months now and I swear by it.
After cleansing I’ll use a moisturiser. I do this to make my skin more hydrated, feel softer and prepared for any makeup application. I have a few which I love, the First Aid Beauty moisturiser is fantastic, as well as the Simple Moisturiser and Bliss Moisturisers. They all are excellent.
Next, I like to ensure I have SPF on at all times. Regardless of whether I’m in the sun for long. It’s incredibly important to maintain your skins health. So whether you apply sun cream directly to your face or have it in a primer or foundation. You should always be wearing this. Whenever I buy new products especially in the summer I like to make sure there is SPF in it.
I also like to exfoliate once a week. I have very sensitive skin and exfoliating more than once a week is never a good idea for me. My skin feels worse off if I do it more than once a week. My favourite exfoliant is The Body Shop Seaweed exfoliant. It really helps to remove excess dirt and replenish my skin. It doesn’t damage my skin at all and helps to matify my skin.
I do like to use a face mask at least once a week. Although most say it’s recommended for 2-3 times a week I simply feel no need. My favourite mask is the Garnier Moisture Bomb Mask. It’s incredibly hydrating and I’ll probably use this maybe once a fortnight to help boost my skin.

Having a spring/summer clean out is so beneficial for you. It helps you to look around at your belongings and appreciate the fact that you’re so lucky to have so many things (more than you probably should). Decluttering also helps you to consider the things that you don’t use or wear anymore and give them to charity or your friends or even throw away the things that simply are of no use.
If you don’t know already, I’m heading away to the states for 3 months and I’m going to have to start packing my things up to move out of my current home and store things with my parents or Matt for the duration I am away. Since this is the case, I went ahead and gave my bedroom a decluttering to help make things easier for when I finally head away. I also own a lot of things that aren’t of any use to me anymore and I’m simply just hoarding them which really isn’t good for the little space I have.
Since I am doing this over the next few weeks I thought I would give you guys some of my tips to declutter your belongings and help reduce the amount of unnecessary things you have.
Tip #1: Don’t throw everything away, find other uses. Give to friends or family, even perhaps donate to charity. You may find that a lot of the things you no longer want are still in decent condition and others may want them instead. I like to find clothing that I don’t wear no more or even miscellaneous items that I have no use for and give them to charity or my loved ones.
Tip #2: When organising your things, use boxes to categories your sections. For example: Box 1 for friends and family. Box 2 for charity. Box 3 for the bin. Normally I’ll put everything in box 1 and see if my friends or family want anything from them, if they don’t then it’ll go in box 2.
Tip #3: Stop finding reasons to keep things. You don’t need that cardigan with holes in just because you’ve owned it for 10 years. That’s a decent reason to throw it away (can’t imagine you would give it to friends/family or charity.
Tip #4: G I also find it so relaxing to declutter and give my living environment a good clean. Crack on some music, get yourself a cocktail and away you go. I find it extremely relaxing to give my living space a good clean and declutter, it helps me to think better and feel more productive as well as feeling more relaxed when I’m spending time there.
Let me know some of your decluttering tips!
