Be summer ready with the Netatmo June

The summer season is almost upon us and many plans are being made, that admittedly, revolve around the sun! Whether it’s a holiday you’ve got booked, or plans to attend a festival, it’s now that we really need to think twice about the potential damage being done to our skin. With the health and wellness industry on the rise, and the wearable technology world set to boom, it’s products like the Netatmo June, that are truly going to make an impact!

As a health conscious nation, we are aware of the implications the sun’s rays can cause to not only our insides, but on the outside too. It’s no lie that us beauty lovers have a strict skincare routine, to prevent those lurky lines and dry skin, and part of that routine includes putting on a number of anti-wrinkle creams and SPF included moisturisers, but probably don’t take as much time to put on that all important high factor sun cream…unless we’re beginning to feel the burn.

Sending notifications to your smart phone, the June is an incredibly exciting new wearable device. With an opulent outer aesthetic and a killer inner intelligence system, using UVA and UVB sensors, the June is able to measure the amount of sun exposure to your skin, making it a pretty sassy way to monitor when you should be topping up on your sun protection and staying in the shade!

To my delight, the June is now available to buy in the beauty haven we call Space NK. Priced at £118, this nifty wearable piece is available in three classic colour ways, including gold, platinum and gunmetal. Using the free downloadable app, June is able to tell you when to re-apply SPF and at what level. A pretty valuable purchase if you think about the long term health benefits. This sort of device is something I know i’d check as much as my emails, especially when spending more and more time outdoors this summer.

Vogue’s Sarah Brown: If you were stuck on a desert island forever and allowed one product, what would that product be?

“On a desert island: Sunscreen. And every other week a new delivery would be airdropped, probably by drone”.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the beauty industry meeting with wearable tech and if this type of product is at the top of your summer wish list!

Valentines Day – Pre Pampering | Cult Beauty

Cult Beauty is one of those dreamland websites, you can find yourself getting seriously lost within! That is if you’re a lover of all things beauty, ofcourse! The products they showcase, are top of the range, sumptuous, quality driven ones, where you know your body will thank you for life, once you indulge it in such enriching loveliness!

Aside from Fashion, if you’ve watched some of my most recent Youtube videos, you may well be aware of how passionate I am regarding  skincare and beauty too. It’s something I enjoy to read about and most importantly, delve my skin into! For years now, I have heard constant mentions of Cult beauty from a number of ‘Beauty Guru’s’, as well as general beauty adorers over various blogs and regularly visited social media sites, such as twitter and instagram…and quite frankly, I can’t get enough!

So, I decided to put together my top pre-pampering picks, for those up and coming Valentines Day occasions. Whether you’re having a night in with your girls, accompanied by wine, chocolate and a line up of chick flicks (bliss), or you’re seeing that someone ‘special’, everyone deserves to treat themselves every now and again, and learn to un-wind & look forward to such up and coming occasions, with a pure pamper evening.

Personally, I have no idea what I will be up to this Valentines, as me and my boyfriend haven’t made any arrangements as of yet, however one thing which would be lovely to do, is to just totally de-stress, give my skin a little TLC, and as stated previously, look forward to what may lie ahead. (Whether it be a lovely dinner at a top-notch restaurant, or just a cosy night in, with a takeaway), I would love to sooth my body and skin in the following perfect products, for whatever the day may bring!.

The first step to a pure unwind, for me, is to run a beautiful bath! Light all your favourite candles, whether they be scented or not and just create that peaceful and subdued atmosphere, that you know you’re dying to be a part of. Personally, once your bath is filled, I would take some of the Aromatherapy Associates deep relax bath & shower oil, and mix it round, to enable your skin to soak up all that beautiful soft moisture, which mine so badly needs right now!

Then, to ensure maximum smooooothness, (most likely before getting out that trusty razor), I would love to give my body a good quality scrub, using the Moroccan Rose Otto sugar body polish, by REN. I have recently purchased my first ever REN product (I know, I know!), and I absolutely loved it, so I’m more than looking forward to trying another product from their range. It will also make your after bath moisturising even more of a joy, once you feel how super soft your skin is.

I also wanted to include the Therapie boost hair & body wash, which looks like a fabulous product for a two in one deep cleanse, as well as an opportunity to really indulge in that stress less feeling. The Cult Beauty description of this product also states how it restores energy levels, which would be perfect if you were flagging slightly. (I would ideally follow this by sipping on a refreshing, yet soothing smoothie or something ultra scrumptious to make your body inside and outside, feel ultra loved!).

Then, once bath time comes to an end, (big booo, I know, but we don’t want to look like a shrivelled prune now do we?…my hands go especially wrinkly if i’m in there for longer than I should be, haha) – One of my most important steps is to moisturise! It nourishes the skin and if you have time, try patting it into the skin rather than rub. I’ve found it absorbs better and leaves a less oily/greasy feeling. For this, my choice would be to use the Eau d’italie Body milk. It’s supposed to smell amazing too, which is always a bonus.

Finally, it’s time to protect and spruce up that face! At the moment, I am suffering with major tired eyes and bags, so need something to soothe, just in time for that special day. The Rose soothing & protecting moisturiser from MV Organic Skincare looks and sounds beautiful. Due to my current sensitive skin, something like this, which includes Rosehip oil is counted as almost a healing ingredient, which is just what I need right now! The other MV Organic Skincare products are also kind ones, in regards to even eczema covered skin! So if you’re a sufferer, this is the one.

I also love looking at Cult Beautys top 10 products, and know that what you will be buying, will be totally worth it. Every item previously mentioned, would be a pure, luxurious treat for my body, and I can’t wait to have more of a nosey at their other online products & makeup, despite how dangerous it may be for my bank balance!

I would like to wish all you beauties an enjoyable Valentines Day, in advance, whatever you may be up too. And if you have no plans, even if you’re not in a relationship, it’s a good excuse to make some! Just make sure you look after yourself, first and foremost! So if you’ve not visited the Cult Beauty site before, take a gander! You won’t be disappointed. Also let me know your favourite skincare products at the moment, i’d love to know! x
