I’m not sure if you guys knew this but I suffer from eczema, it comes and goes but mainly decides to pop up during winter or when its cold. So, because of this I also have quite dry skin which I’m forever trying to solve and discover a product which my skin loves and works well with. I discovered frank body sometime last year and fell in love with it. They are an “Australian made coffee-based skincare range that targets cellulite, stretch marks and other skin conditions to leave your skin feeling soft and supple.” The product is straight forward and really works!

I recently heard about their travel sized coffee scrubs that come in a super cute reusable satchel which is perfect for me as I’m always travelling. They’ve called this the Grind High Club, in this package you receive four mini coffee scrubs each with four different varieties; original, coconut, cacao and peppermint. All help to exfoliate, moisturise and soften your skin!

Another reason why I’m head over heels for the Grind High Club is because it gave me the opportunity to try out each of the coffee scrubs. The coconut one is my absolute fav as I found this scrub the most hydrating! I’ve linked all the products above for you to find!

Je ne sais pas si vous les gars savaient cela, mais je souffre d’eczéma, il va et vient, mais décide surtout à apparaître au cours de l’hiver ou quand il fait froid. Donc, à cause de cela, je dois aussi la peau très sèche que je suis toujours essayer de résoudre et de découvrir un produit qui aime ma peau et fonctionne bien avec. J’ai découvert Frank Body courant de l’année dernière et est tombé en amour avec elle, ils sont un “fait gamme de soins à base de café australienne qui cible la cellulite, les vergetures et les autres conditions de la peau pour laisser votre peau douce et souple.” Le produit est simple et fonctionne vraiment!

J’ai récemment entendu parler de leurs voyages gommages café de taille qui viennent dans une sacoche réutilisable super mignon qui est parfait pour moi car je suis toujours en voyage. Ils ont appelé cela le Grind High Club, dans ce paquet que vous recevez quatre gommages café mini-chacun avec quatre parfums différents; original, la noix de coco, le cacao et la menthe poivrée. Toutes les aident à exfolier, hydrater et adoucir votre peau!

Une autre raison pour laquelle je suis la tête sur les talons pour le Grind High Club est parce qu’il m’a donné l’occasion d’essayer chacun des gommages de café. La noix de coco est mon fav absolue comme je l’ai trouvé ce gommage le plus hydratant! Je suis lié à tous les produits ci-dessus pour vous de trouver!

SUN SCHOOL

Recently I was invited down to Hawaiian Tropics Sun School, which came at perfect timing as I’m jetting off to Greece and Turkey this week! Hawaiian Tropics gave me the 4-1-1 on fashion, skincare and awesome music vibes with Lauren Pope. I was extra lucky as I was able to interview Dr Maryam and gain knowledge to share with you all about the importance of sun protection. Below I have a few questions that people on snapchat sent over to me on the day of the event to ask Dr Maryam.

Q. How do I find out what my skin type is?

A. There’s some charts that you can find online, if you Google Fitzpatrick skin type. It’s a questionnaire that you basically fill out – it has to do with ethnicity, how easily you tan in the sun, hair colour, skin colour and those factors combined will help you figure it out. It is very important to know for skin protection against the sun and ageing etc.

Q. What does SPF mean?

A. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and refers to the theoretical amount of time you can stay in the sun without getting sunburned.

Q. Why should you wear SPF?

A. There are different types of UV rays. UVA rays are always present, regardless of weather. The rays permeates deeper into the skin ­causing premature ageing & wrinkling ­and it also linked to skin cancers. UVB rays causes sunburn & redness. These rays damage the superficial epidermal layers and are a significant role in skin cancers. This is why it is important to always wear an SPF regardless of the weather, rain, snow, sun… everything.

Q. What SPF would you recommend that people use?

A. I always tell people the more you put on the better it is, if you have more SPF protection at least you are covered for longer than you think you need.

Q. How does sun damage effect different skin types?

A. Melanin helps absorb and scatter UV light to protect the skin. ­All skin types are at risk of sun damage, photoageing, premature ageing and skin cancers ­ Lighter skin types are at increased risk of having significant burning with sun exposure, accelerating all skin damage and overall risk for BCC, SCC and melanoma. Darker skin types are at an increased risk for overproduction of melanin resulting in uneven skin tone such as melasma. Darker skin types are also at increased risk for skin cancers
