A lot of catching up to do

 
 
How ya doing?
I really feel like I have spoken properly on my blog for ages. I've been uploading sceduled posts, reviews and wishlists for the past few months but haven't really been sharing whats been going on. Its pretty difficult to know where to start but I would have to say that the biggest change would have to of been moving to University. I did mention it a few weeks ago but haven't really mentioned about how its going.
 
So far I really am loving it and extremely happy that I am once again livng in the south (I'm studying a Southampton). Although the move has been pretty difficult to adjust to initially I am finally starting to feel like I'm settling in. My room has become filled with photos, books and posters all to make the place feel more homely, and to be honest its really working. Considering how close I am to specifically my mum but my brother too I thought that I would be feeling a lot worse than I do but I know they are only a phone call or a (four hour!) train ride away.
 
I'm starting to feel like I'm meeting people too. Suffering from SAD (social anxiety disorder) I found it really difficult to talk to large groups of people and make friends when I first started uni, and although I still feel like I haven't met a huge number of people I've definately pushed myself out of my comfort zone and with time can hopefully make even more friends. My course is pretty great at the moment, its strange dragging yourself out of bed in the mornings but not having to dread the days lecture or seminar because you know thats it somethings you really want to do.
 
I went home last weekend for my Nans 80th and she had come up to see my Dad and brother. It was great to see her and my whole family. It also meant that I managed to squeeze in time to see my friends. It was so nice to see them and as much as I love Southampton, I really can't wait to spend Christmas at home with my friends and family this year.
 
I've got quite a few post planned over the next few months, some which I am super excited for you to see! Please message me any posts you would like to see specifically

Skin Types

Image- wehearit.com

With the vast variety of skincare products that are available it can be difficult to find the correct product for you. Skin type is a really important factor that must be considered in order to make sure that the correct product is being used. My current skin type is dry, however, it does often change depending on the weather and climate so my skin type is usually oily/combination. It is important to remember that your skin type can change due to a variety of factors such as diet, climate and age.

 

Oily Skin
This is when the skin is shiny especially in the T-zone. They may also suffer from large pores on the skin and be prone to blackheads and common breakouts. A positive of oily skin is that it ages better than dry skin as the oils keep the skin more plump. Oily skin is more common in younger females. Products that claim to be suited for oily skin will work well and it is important that exfoliation takes place twice and week and using an oil-free moisturiser. In terms of make oil free foundation or powder products will work better on the skin.
Combination/Normal skin
The majority of women have combination/normal skin. combination skin means a slightly oily T-zone with dryer cheeks or dry patches on the skin. possibly large pores on the cheeks and forehead. This skin type has medium pores, a smooth and even texture, good circulation and a healthy colour. With combination it may be required to use additional different products for certain areas.
Dry Skin
Dry skin feels tight, especially after cleansing. you have a tendencies towards fine lines and wrinkles. women of colour may find that there skin appear dull. Heavy cleansers and moisturiser will help. many company's have produced products that are suited for this skin type. exfoliating weekly and using a primer before applying foundation will help to plump the skin as much as possible.
Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin tend to be thin with fine pores. If you are irritated by the sun or particular products than you make have red patches or blotches on the skin. it can be difficult at times to find the correct products but companies are introducing more products targeted at sensitive skin. Look for mild products that contain no scents
