Skin Types – Oily skin

(Post Friday 26.02.2016)

So as I was about to start my computer, to start my content... my laptop had some loading thing happening ... I decided just to sit and wait, it wouldn’t take that long right? It did like 10 minutes+! Hehehe while i was waiting i was listening...

MNDR – Kimono
I was actually looking for the theme song of the Kardashians – yap I'm a huge fan of the Kardashian's and Jenner's (not Cait that much)... – with the whole beat box thingy going on but instead I got this song, it’s the same but think that one was a bit more remixed!!! 
NRG – Maday (Afrikaans)
Robin Schulz – Sugar
Silento – watch me whip nae nae
Survivor – Eye of a tiger
Simple Plan – Summer Paradise
Koos – Tamboerynman (Afrikaans)
The Vamps – Can we dance?

Anyways so as most of you know or read on my last few posts, I am studying beauty therapy – totally love it, yes I have to admit I never really thought what I am studying ... I would! But it’s okay cause it is actually interesting. Business English, Anatomy and Physiology etc.

So I received my new study material and practical and there is some interesting info that I would like to share with you guys.

Today I would like you to identify your skin type if you don’t know what you have. (Follow my posts to find out what you are).

Today I'm giving a little bit of more information on dry skin type.

Oily / Acne Skin

Characteristics of oily skin
     Visible large pores
     Small inflamed areas (occasionally)
     Bit of shine to face
     No dry areas
     Oily skin is prone to breakouts
     Acne on back, neck and chest

Treatments and Products suitable for oily skin
     Cleanser – foam or gel
     Moisturizer – Lightweight with SPF sun protection
     Toner – you can use a toner that contains between 20% and 60% of alcohol

Natural ingredients for oily skin
     Tea tree oil
     Egg white
     Strawberry Tomato
     Lime juice
     Witch hazel (I am using this as a toner now)
     Apple cider vinegar

Suitable facials for oily / acne skin
     Deep cleansing
     Basic / normal facials
     Aromatherapy facials
    Exfoliating facials
    Clay Mask facial
    Oxygen facials
    Fruit Acid Peel facials

Tips to prevent worsen oily / acne skin and breakouts
    Wash your face twice a day
    Witch hazel serves as a great toner
    Don’t use cream cleanser – always use gel or foam cleanser
    Aloe Vera gel can also be great to absorb oiliness
    Use a light weight moisturiser that specifies ‘for oily skin’
    Use an exfoliator designed for all skin types       
    Exfoliate every third day
    Crushed almond, honey and sugar work well for oily skin 
    Oatmeal mixed with honey and sugar is also a great exfoliator
    Use ‘oil free’ makeup, 
    Use water based foundation – not ‘oil based’
    Don’t touch your face during the day – before you do wash your hands  
    Citrus, lime, lemon, Aloe Vera and tea tree work great on oily skin.
    Clay mask help reduce oil on the skin

Please Note! This is only advise I am giving. Please make sure you are not allergic to any of the items used in the masks or my above content - I will not be held liable for any allergic reactions.

Have a great day !

Peach Makeup looks

Hi all

So I used to buy the Glamour magazine since 2006 - but recently i decided to get rid of it and just keep the last 5 years, but obviously i didn't just throw it away I was actually creative and snipped out some idea whether it was makeup, skin car, a nice pillow or what ever I was tearing it apart. 

Anyways something I noticed I collected a lot of peach makeup looks, i think i fell in love with it! Its one of those looks that can be perfect for any skin color - if you apply it correctly. 

Here is something i just put together for you guys...

Some tutorials to create beautiful looking peach makeup looks.

Obsession of the day - Taylor and Karlie

Favorite pic of the day!

BFF'S Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift
Why i chose this picture I have subscribed to Vogue so every
morning I get some updates. This morning there was a 
Best Best Friend Test and they were the two best friends. 
I couldn't get any sound but their faces just gave it away! 
Love it!
2016 - To do list 

As promised...

As I got ready to take a bath last night, I realized something. 
We were all probably at some age some time asked by someone - 10 years ago, where do we see ourselves in 10 years? I was definitely asked I just can’t remember by who or why but I was asked. Well I bet you I probably didn’t say, ‘still living with my parents, no boyfriend or kids’ owh yes and no car’ something I probably did say was a good job? Which I can not complain about as I have a very good job. Not my dream job, but one that I get a payslip from each month to make a living out of. 
This is what I said ‘Married to a great guy, my own place, my own car and a successful fashion designer’ Kids – gosh I can’t remember. But have I even accomplished a 5% of what I predicted or hoped for? Well after school I couldn’t go to university, I had to start working immediately, but 2013 I applied with Intec College to do a distance learning course in Fashion Portfolio and Presentation. 
Last year I decided to further my studies with SA College to get a certificate in beauty Therapy. Which consist of the following courses, Introduction to Business English, make-up application, nail tech, massage, skin care, waxing and shaping of eyebrows. So far I have done well in all my assignments. I always try to push some extra time in at work when I finished my work to try and go through my studies.

I have had this dream to do acting, not just commercials but movies – my personal choice, Afrikaans movies (I’m an Afrikaans movie freak fan – if that is what you can call it?). I want to do the course with Brumilda van Rensburg she offers an acting course which is over 7 weekend (unfortunately it’s over weekend because she and the rest of us, probably has to work during the week but that’s okay – maybe that’s not the unfortunate part maybe it’s the cost of the course), so I’ll have to save up for that cause, the next one is August I think?!

Okay soooo I’m going to stop just there

Things I want to do in 2016...

Get my learners licence – Got it! Scrap that!

Get my licence... just need a bit more practice. Then I’m good to go!

My first car – which I will be buying myself, first time buyer and owner of a car, and best part I work for it.

Blog more... Spend more time with you guys. Do more fashion contents and beauty I’m definitely going to do, just hold in there with me please.

Start my own summer clothing range... I love summer ... and winter and ... okay I like the whole year round cause summer times when it’s too hot I wish for winter and vice versa...! Anyways my first goal is summer!

Go on holiday and just relax... – This is happening in May Whooohooo!!! Going down to the Western Cape.

Get more involved in decorating – kind of a party planner (start something small)... I have this whole DIY thing happening maybe I’ll post that on my next content. – DIY Wedding inspiration.

Do the Brumilda van Rensburg’s acting course... Saving...

Be Afrikaans – involved. It’s my language; don’t we all want to live more in our language? We 
have a organisation called ATKV in South Africa, it’s typically South African – check out the website

I really want t buy my own laser wood cutter... not exactly sure what you call it! But I love it – and I want one – BUT I have to buy it from the US or UK, because even with the Rand that shot fly high in Dec it’s starting to drop down low again!! I have this whole thing I would love to do with it. Secrets

Make a video – sorry I can’t give out too much detail on that one yet – but I can only ask for you to pray for me! It’s something I want to do that could maybe make one of my dreams come true.

Getting our own home – and not renting anymore!! This is also me asking you to pray for me!!! 
Circumstances are a very difficult at the moment. I don’t really want to go in to much detail about but I can only ask for everyone’s prayers.

So for now I think that’s it...

If we don’t have enough faith, and believe our dreams are reachable - we are underestimating 

God’s love and what he really has planned for our lives ahead.

Send me your lists of things you really want to do this year

Happy new Year 

Okay it might be 53 days late... rather late then never ... right? 

So I'm sharing a little fan gossip first, I love Southern Curls and Pearls blog. Her blog is so inspirational for us newby bloggers and its almost my 1st Blog Birthday, but back to what I was saying, usually I just check out her photos - I don't really do the reading part so today I decided to read and actually go into her blog and read a little bit more. I'm glad I did. 

As a blogger I am often scared I'm going to post something that people might think is boring but at the end of the day it's MY blog not the people's. If you like what I post comment please I'd appreciate that, getting a readers point of view on my content will be great and nice knowing that people actually read my blog - but with my hand full of readers (for now) - Thank you. I really appreciate it.

So Back to #1 why I read her blog... today... inspiration...
She started like any bloggers nothing professional, momma took some photos, photos was taken in her bedroom.... but what got me she started small and she didn't expect anything big ... major.. happening right there and then, she worked towards her success.

Thank you for always brightening up my day with a Southern Curls & Pearls post Caitlin.

So back to my blog this year I have so many plans and things I want to do. 

Owh quick one I got my learners and my mom's been giving me and my sister some lessons - Yap we are doing great - although we have to work on the nerves a bit! 

So tonight I'll make a list of all the things I want to do this year, 
I will update you guys tomorrow!! 

Well I'm going home now!! 

Have a great day and save traveling!
