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!

Meagan Kerr's autumn beauty tips

Skin and hair restored after a bit of TLC

I spent my summer making the most of the amazing weather – I’ve been swimming, I’ve been out in the sun, I’ve worn shorts and jandals almost every day … and as a result I’m in need of a little bit of head to toe TLC. Over summer I tend to lean towards a really basic beauty routine but autumn is the time that I replenish my skin and my hair after a lot of sea, sun and sand. Continue reading

It’s become easier and easier to find great products that don’t come at the expense of our animal friends. Seeing as it’s #BeCrueltyFree week this week, I think there are a few things you need to know about cruelty free beauty.

Review: Dermalogica Breakout Control

Dermalogica Breakout Control

I have relatively good skin, but occasionally I get breakouts. I get hormonal breakouts, I get pimples when I take certain medications or am stressed, and I sometimes get them as a reaction to a makeup or skincare product I’ve used. Over the last two months, I’ve had breakouts as a result of ALL of these reasons – not cool! Continue reading

Review: Manuka Biotic Skincare

Near the end of last year I tried a new moisturiser that really didn’t agree with my skin. Major breakouts, redness and crappy skin were plentiful, which left me feeling pretty rubbish. I pretty much didn’t leave the house without packing on the makeup, I avoided looking in the mirror and I stopped taking selfies. Then something magical appeared on my doorstep – some gorgeous Manuka Biotic skincare.

Manuka Biotic Cleanser and Day Cream

Manuka Oil helps the body to repair and rejuvenate itself, while the antibacterial properties help to keep the skin clean and clear of bacteria that can cause skin problems such as acne, spots and other blemishes. Exactly what I needed. Or so I hoped…
