Beauty Blogging: What I've Learnt

I have nearly been blogging for a year and a half now and I recently cam to the realisation that this experience has made me realise a few things. These are the things that I've learnt on the beauty side of blogging...

Eyebrows aren't twins, they're sisters. Oh the struggles that some women (and men) go through just to get their eyebrows looking neat and tidy. When I started secondary school I plucked them constantly and looking back - nooooooo. If any young readers are reading right now then put your tweezers down, get them professionally done and if you still aren't satisfied then don't go pinching because they are never going to be exactly the same.

Parabens. Parabens are chemicals that are used in products to preserve them, these chemicals can carry dangers. They are most commonly found in cosmetics, shaving gels, shower gels and toothpaste. I am not going to go into too much detail on them (if to wish to find out more then you can do that yourself) because I don't want to start getting people nervous. All I will say is that there are ways around parabens and all companies try to use them in small doses. For example Lush have re-formulated some of their products which is an expensive a risky job to do, so hats-off to Lush.

Importance of moisturising. I started blogging as a dry, sensitive and problem-skinned girl and now I'm at the point where I can be happy in my skin. It's not perfect but the state that my skin is now compared to before is fantastic. That's because I discovered my life-saving moisturiser through blogging. The La Roche Posay Ciciplast Baume B5 can't be raved about enough on this blog because it is my hero through and through. Moisturising your skin is a small step that has to be done because not only does it moisturise your skin but it refreshes and brightens your skin.

Research helps
You wouldn't buy a book without reading the blurb so why would you buy a product without reading the reviews? It's really important that you read the reviews of a product because you could end up with something that doesn't match your skin, smells nasty, causes break outs or even is just really underrated by the public. At the end of the day it's your opinion however reading the reviews can really improve your mind set.

What have you learnt through blogging/bloggers?
