Do you brush your face?!

November 02, 2010 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

Lately, the use of facial brushes seems to be gaining popularity.  There are various facial brushes available on the market; ranging from small manual ones, that look like a toothbrush, to larger electric ones with various attachments.

A soft-bristle face brush is used to get a more radiant complexion by gently loosens dead skin cells and impurities while stimulating circulation.  Most brushes are gentle enough for all skin types.  Besides deep cleansing and softening the skin, facial brushing can also help reduces the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.

How to use:

Splash warm water onto the face and neck and apply your cleansing product.  Gently massage into the skin, using the face brush, in small circular movements, then rinse with warm water.  After use, splash your face with cool water and pat dry.  Follow with a toner and moisturiser suitable for your skin type.

If you have whiteheads when using this, make sure to clean your brush with antiseptic soap and water and wash off any residue before use. Be sure to go over those spots really gently.


I also find that this is the quickest and safest way to get rid of blackheads.  Blackheads (impurities that block the pores) will come to the surface while brushing, making it very easy to extract with a blackhead extractor.

Introduction / Purpose of this blog

September 18, 2010 0 Comments
Hello everyone! 

welcome sign

My name is Cosette (Euphrasie85), I'm a 25-year-old female from Malta.  

I've been suffering from acne since I was 12 years old.  Luckily in the past year and a half or so, my skin improved a lot, but I still breakout occasionally. Throughout the years, I've learned a lot about skincare and I want to share my experience with everyone.  

The purpose of this blog is to tell you about my experience with skincare products, treatments and home remedies.  I will post skincare tips and advice for different skin types, not just for acne-prone/sensitive skin.  Everyone, no matter what skin type, wants to have smoother, softer and healthier skin. After all, the skin is our largest organ and we should take good care of it. 

Hope you will find the information I'll be posting helpful.
