Double Cleansing

Double cleansing step one: Dermalogica Precleanse Balm

When you wash your face, how well are you actually cleaning it? I remember in my teens and early twenties, that I would wash off my makeup and still wake up with panda eyes. Or sometimes, not wash my makeup off at all… I know, naughty. When I did wash my face, it was only a vague attempt with a makeup wipe or a quick scrub with a face cloth. Drunk early 20’s Meagan just wanted to fall into bed, she didn’t care about cleaning her makeup off!

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realised that I actually need to take care of my skin. Part of that is making sure I clean it (properly). I was introduced to double cleansing in my 30’s, and I haven’t looked back. View Post

Dealing with stress

Feeling stressed? Check out these tips for dealing with stress

Everyone has some kind of stress in their lives – it might be studying for exams, a new baby, having a looming deadline, a big event coming up … it looks different for all of us. At the moment, my main form of stress centres around being unwell and my recent surgery – pretty unsurprising, really.

For me, stress shows up in a few ways. I feel exhausted but find it hard to sleep; I find it really difficult to focus; I start burning the candle at both ends; I snap at people around me; my skin breaks out and it also affects my appetite. Obviously not ideal! Dermalogica launched their new Stress Positive Eye Lift recently and it got me thinking about how I react to stress. I wanted to share how I make sure I’m looking after myself when I am going through a stressful time, and give you a chance to try out some of that Stress Positive Eye Lift for yourself. View Post

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant Review + Giveaway

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

I’ve been fizzing ever since I saw Dermalogica launch their Daily Superfoliant in the US a few months ago, because I really enjoy exfoliating my face. I know that might sound strange, but I’ve always loved it because it leaves my skin feeling cleaner and fresher, and looking brighter. Anyway, I waited for months to try the Daily Superfoliant, and because Dermalogica is one of my amazing blog partners I got the chance to try it out for a few weeks before it hit the shelves here! It’s being released in New Zealand today, so I wanted to share my thoughts on it and give you the chance to try it for yourself (yeah babe, that means there’s going to be a giveaway!). View Post

My skin story

Meagan Kerr after using Dermalogica skincare

My skin is looking pretty good after a few weeks of my new skincare routine

I was pretty lucky when I was a teenager – I had good skin and didn’t get many pimples. For me, my skin issues came later. In my 20’s my complexion was all over the place – sometimes it was dry, sometimes it was oily, and I had lots of breakouts. There have been times when I haven’t wanted to leave the house because of how my face look; I started wearing makeup to cover up my blemishes, and unsurprisingly that didn’t make it any better!
