These last few months of thesis writing has really taken its toll on me, both physically and mentally. I must admit I haven’t really been taking proper care of myself, and haven’t given myself the time to indulge in some skin pampering outside of my usual beauty routine. And it’s been showing in my skin. Think fatigued and textured skin. So when the opportunity arose to visit Burnside Cosmetic to experience the Ultra MD A-Zyme Peel, my heart really could not pass up the chance to put my feet up and yield to some relaxation and a quality cosmeceutical treatment.
Cleansing my skin is one of my favourite times of my daily hustle. There is nothing like ridding your face of pollution, dirt and impurities at the end of a long day and it’s one of my top rituals in my beauty routine. True to my nature, I like to experiment with skincare, especially with cleansers. I love discovering new formulations and ingredients, and cleansers that come in a different form or have different ingredients to the usual cleanser we are all familiar with. This post will cover some cleansers that have been on high rotation in my cleansing routine lately for one reason or another.

We all know the benefits of a good nights sleep for both our physical and mental health. You never feel good waking up from a disrupted sleep that’s full of tosses and turns. You might even notice that your skin looks lifeless, dull, perhaps even a little more saggy? Recently, Dermalogica has taken on a new wave of missions to help make sleep just that little bit more powerful for maintaining our skin health. The Sound Sleep Cocoon is the latest product to hit their arsenal with the hopes of taking full advantage of our overnight bodily processes to improve our skin when we wake every morning.
Do you feel like your achievements haven’t been a result of hard work or skill? Rather, they were a result of being in the right place at the right time, or just pure luck? Do you sometimes feel like you’ve manipulated your friends, family, peers and superiors into thinking your better than you actually are? Do all these thoughts send you into a dark spiral of fear and anxiety that someday someone will learn how much of fraud you are and reveal it to the world? It’s most likely none of those things are true, and it’s most likely your suffering from a psychological phenomenon called ‘Imposter Syndrome’.
