Believe it or not- skincare is one of my biggest passions.
After suffering a few years back for about a year with what felt like the longest and most emotionally draining battle with acne breakouts- trips to the dermatologist and high quality skincare took total forefront of my spending habits, and I was determined to not let my skin ever get into a bad condition again.
It’s not something I’ve had the opportunity to discuss before on my blog, with Fashion always being the main talking point- but it’s something I’ve wanted to talk about here for a long time now, so when Panasonic Beauty contacted me some months ago now asking me to be a part of their ‘Shaped Around You’ campaign- I knew it was the perfect opportunity to introduce my love of skin and beauty onto my blog.
Now aged twenty-two, alike to most girls and guys, I know what I like and I like what I know. I’ve got a pretty good understanding of what products work well with my sensitive, slightly temperamental skin, and I 100% know what ingredients to avoid. So when the Panasonic Beauty email dropped into my inbox, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could enhance my skincare routine so easily, without neglecting any of my favourite products and enhancing the results of my existing skincare products- I was all in.
The two products I’ve been trialling alongside my current skincare routine are Panasonic’s 3-in-1 Facial Enhancer EH-XT20 and the Panasonic Facial Steamer EH-XS01. By simply introducing these products alongside my pre-existing routine just a couple of times a week- I’ve seen a great change in both the radiance and clarity of my skin, as well as the results I am able to achieve from all of my already favourite beauty products.
First things first- the facial enhancer. It’s compact, light and super portable, with a chic rose gold and white design- so don’t clear out your cupboard just yet- this product looks beautiful taking pride of place on your bathroom shelf.
The tool features three completely different skin enhancing modes- purifying mode opens up your pores, to “extract 60% more deep-set grime and grease from your pores”- need. Moisturising mode delivers “40% more moisturising results from your existing creams where they are most needed”- yes please! Lastly, cooling mode is designed as a final skincare step, to “soothe and lift the skin tighten pores and improve firmness”. This mode is also great in conjunction with your favourite eye creams- to further reduce dark circles and eye puffiness. Sold?! Me too!
I’ve now trialled this product alongside a toner, a serum and my favourite moisturising mask, and the warmth from the facial enhancer over the product was a total facial haven. Cooling mode is an incredible feature to use before your morning make up application- to close up your pores and firm the skin, giving you that perfect, clear skin base and an instant glow.
The second Panasonic Beauty tool I’ve introduced into my skincare regime is the facial steamer– something a little more familiar I’m sure you’d agree. But being a Panasonic Beauty steamer, this isn’t just any facial steamer. It creates micro-sized nano particles, which are 18,000 times smaller than regular steam particles for a whole new experience of deep, next level cleansing.
This tool spoke to me straight away. There’s honestly nothing I love more than an exfoliation or a deep cleansing face mask after a week of make-up- so this not only cleanses deeper than any product could, but also rids the skin of any dead skin cells which makes for a great gentle alternative to what can sometimes be a slightly skin damaging exfoliation process.
Alike all the products in the range- its designed to fit in easily around a busy lifestyle with three treatment durations- a luxury twelve minute hydration mode, a six minute alternative or a quick three minute cleanse helping to increase the production of collagen in the skin better than any luxury serum can.
The results of my new found must haves? Glowing, flawless and plump, forehead-line-free skin. The tens of lotions and potions I’ve added to my lengthy skincare routine? None.
A busy lifestyle doesn’t have to impact great skincare, and introducing one, two or more of these tools into your weekly morning or bedtime regime just a few times a week can have the most drastic impact on the health of your skin and the results you can achieve from your already favourite beauty products.
