Get rid of acne scars naturally

We’re all in a constant battle for perfectly clear skin. Men and women, young or old – the quest for beautiful skin is pretty much something we all think about for at least a couple of minutes every time we’re faced with a mirror and some unsightly spots, fine lines, wrinkles or pigmentation.

Something a lot of us are often worried about are long-term problems with scars from acne or accidents.

We did some research and here’s our guide on how to get rid of, and minimise, scars naturally.

Good luck!

Amour! Italian magazine loves The SkinBase Facial

We’re so delighted that the Italians (who know more than just a thing or two about beauty!) have fallen in love with The SkinBase Facial. This month we got a double paged spread in popular beauty magazine ‘La Pelle’, amazing!

The article interviewed SkinBase owner and founders, Rich and Leesa Faulkner to find out exactly why they began the company. Though we’re sure many of you are fluent in Italian (like we are of course, uh hem…) we’ve translated the piece for you just in case.

Something for the weekend – the easiest & quickest smoky eye effect

Everyone wants sexy, smoky eyes but it’s a look that can be difficult to get right. Applying deeper shades to the eyes requires lots of skill and accuracy. There is no room for error! Both eyes need to be symmetrical and perfectly blended. When applied correctly the result is simply amazing looking eyes. The shadow should never compete with your eyes. Not surprising then that smoky eyes are the most requested look for a makeup artist.

Here is my fool proof, quick and very easy guide. It requires very few products and the whole look can be achieved with just fingertips. What’s great about this look is its casualness, like you haven’t tried too hard, its not overly done and that’s why it works on all ages. It’ll go with anything and wouldn’t be out of place during the daytime either…

Poolside beauty – our favourite artfully dishevelled look

Summer is here, well, almost! This warm weather has sudden gripped us with the usual May / June fear as we suddenly realise we’re supposed to be fresh faced and beach ready in just a matter of weeks. PANIC.

If our wobbly bits weren’t frightening enough, we’ve also got to think about our face, makeup, hair and of course, accessories to sort out (oh to be a man…) so at SkinBase we’ve decided to give you a few of our favourite DIY looks over the coming months, copied straight from the catwalk.

The good news? It requires nothing more than an amazing pre holiday skin routine, a tonne of high sunscreen, a little powder and some creative fingertips which work a treat at tousling locks…

Trend alert: Diamond year – lets sparkle

So Queenie is celebrating 60 years, and we all get a four-day weekend out of it. Thank you very much.

Looks like the world of make up and fashion have taken the glittering heights of royalty to a whole new level as we’re inundated with shimmering gowns, silver spray on make up and dazzling catwalk tiaras. This is one trend we think we’re going to enjoy.

Long live the queen, long live the metallic trend…

SkinBase top beauty tip: Kohl powered

We love arming you beauties with little top tips to make you even more gorgeous. This week it’s our dramatic friend the eyeliner who takes centre stage…

‘If you want to make your eyes appear more dramatic without looking as if you’ve used a lot of eyeliner, take a black kohl pencil and softly line the inside rim of your top lid. It will instantly add density to the eye, and make the roots of your lashes look darker’

Body beautiful: the corset comeback – would you wear one?

In the ongoing quest for the “perfect body,” women have turned to a new–actually make that very, very old–mode of transformation: corsetry

A mixture of celeb interest and figure hugging dresses on the market appear to have made looking for a body ‘the shape of a coke bottle’ a do’able and acceptable undergarment once more!

The question is, would you wear one?

Trend alert! A caviar manicure…

Nail polish trends come and go (see: the French manicure) but luckily there’s always something new, wonderful, and wacky in the pipeline. Last year it was all about crackle top coats and magnetic polish. We hadn’t really seen anything new yet this year in the world of nails…until now.

Welcome the happiest and poshest manicure going – the Caviar.
