INDULGE YOUR BODY IN SOME MOISTURISING NOURISHMENT
The Ordinary is apparently one of the best skincare brands to launch in the past year. They take pure ingredients that have been proven to work, and sell them for ridiculously low prices, staring at just £4. Many products that have previously cost a pretty penny are now as cheap as chips.
One of their best products is their Ascorbal Glucoside Solution 12%. This serum contains Vitamin C which is great at fading dark acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and gives your skin an overall glow. Similar products cost into the hundreds of pounds from other brands, making the ‘lit from within’ look unattainable for most of us. But thanks to The Ordinary, you can look like a glowing goddess without breaking the bank.Other standout products from the brand include their salicylic acid to spot treat, and their primers to apply under your make-up to make it last longer.

Moisturising your face is important no matter what you skin type. Even if your skin gets so greasy it resembles an oil slick. In fact, excess oil can be produced when your skin is dehydrated and in need of more moisture. So, the solution to oily skin could be more oil! Not just any oil mind you, it must be one that is similar to your skins natural sebum, so that it won’t block any of your pores. Rosehip oil is perfect for this purpose.
Just mix a few drops into your moisturiser or apply it straight if you skin is especially parched. Within no time your sebum production will be regulated and your skin will not only feel noticeably softer, but look less oily.
