What Could Be Causing You To Breakout

Breakouts, aren’t they just the worst? When you breakout you probably think its mother nature come early or you had one too many sweets, sometimes that isn’t the case. This post will walk you through some of the things that could be breaking you out.

  1. Pillow Cases

I know what you’re thinking, “what, pillow cases?” On average most people change their bed once every two weeks, and every night you rest your face on the same pillow over and over again until you wash them. Think of the times where you’ve fallen asleep with your make up on, moisturised your face, or even fallen asleep drooling as we all do, all those factors build up throughout the days and all the built up dirt starts to clog your pores and latch onto your face. Try changing your pillow case every 3/4 days or even just flip it over to the other side!

2. Using Body Products on Your Face

You know those times where you’re rushing to shower and you skip the face wash and just lather some body wash on your face? Wah wah! When using body products on your face even once in a while as a last resort, the ingredients are far too harsh for the delicate skin on your face hence then causing spots to surface. Instead spare a couple of seconds to take care of your skin with products meant for your face.

3. Over Exfoliating

This one is quite self explanatory, exfoliating leaves your face looking fresh and new but doing it more than 3 times a week can cause your skin to freak out and raise breakout hell!

4. Dirty Hair

I raise my hand to admit that I pretty much only wash my hair once a week (I shower everyday of course!) this is mainly because of my mission to grow my hair, but that aside, when your hair is dirty and the strands brush against your face it can cause breakouts around the perimeter of your face.

5. Gone Off Make-Up

You know that bottle of foundation you bought two years ago but then y0u found a new one, and then the new one ran out so you had to resort to your old one? Well this can cause HUGE breakouts, if you never knew foundation had an expiry date you can find it on the back, the average time for a bottle of foundation is 12 months and if you use it passed its date your skin really doesn’t like it!

Sweet Peach is Back

If you know the beauty world chances are your eyes lit up at the sight of this palette, yep Too Faced Sweet Peach is back! Now this is my first Sweet Peach palette, having missed the chance when it released last year. It released in store in Debenhams yesterday and I was lucky enough to attend the launch party, a cute little sit down with swatches galore was set up featuring a demo from one of the lovely make up artists from the Too Faced Counter.

If I’m honest as much as I love make up the thought of this palette costing me £39 stung a little bit, but that’s just because I’m a cheapskate! But god I don’t regret it, this palette smells great, looks great and wears even better! img_1069Ugh those colours, aren’t they amazing? I’m one to usually only wear browns and nudes but when I was having a play about I used “white peach” “just peachy” “candied peach” and “delectable” on my eyes and although it was way out of my comfort zone it was a gorgeous look!

Pigmentation: 9/10

The pigmentation is lovely, one swipe and you’ve got lovely colour pay off, however “just peachy” takes a couple of swishes with your brush to get an intense colour.

Staying Power: 10/10

I couldn’t give this any other rating other than a solid 10, I applied the eyeshadow at 11 am this morning to now when I’m sat here writing this post at 5pm and the shadow hasn’t budged one bit.

Overall this palette is a masterpiece and I count recommend this palette anymore, it fits beginners and it fits masters, its the perfect collection of mattes and shimmers.

Thanks for reading!
