REAL LIFE BEAUTY

www.jeskaalee.com

A lot of you may have read a little about my self love journey over the years here on my blog or over on my Instagram or you may be tuning in right now for the very first time. Self love for me is something I work on every day and it can some days be super easy and then some days well, not so much.. depending on what life throws my way!

I think many of us can agree this day and age we can be very much affected by the world of social media and the images thrown at us ranging from insta models, to people in magazines, to people we see on tv and even things said verbally in real life (Yup there is a real world not just the social media one). All of these factors can really sway the way we feel about ourselves if we let it and I can put my hand up and say in the past it really affected me and some days I do still catch myself comparing myself to others.

Comparing your journey or comparing yourself with another can be unhealthy and an unrealistic goal as a lot of what we see in the media and social world is skewed to look "perfect" and altered from reality.. not all, but a lot of it! Now I am not saying you can't look up to people and be inspired by people you see online as I am inspired everyday by different people I follow but it is not my goal to be them, or have their life.. I take cue from their positive vibes, get inspired by their way of life and put that positive energy into my own. For me if I find myself feeling affected by someone I just stop following or remove them from my physical world or I change the way I view them.

This visual generation we are in has taught a lot of us to only focus on the physicals of people rather than focusing on the beauty of personality, the beauty of thought and the beauty of the heart all combined. It might sound corny but I think the world is better with a little corny and a little old school.

Audrey Hepburn nailed beauty on the head with this quote.. "The beauty of a woman is not in her clothes she wears, the future that she carries, or the way she her combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eye, because the doorway to her heart,the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years".

My message to you today is to embrace your own beauty and work toward becoming the best version of yourself.. I wrote an E-book a while back now but it's free and it may help you if you are struggling with the above situation!

Somehow the Summer heat always sneaks up on us and we are needing to bare our skin to the elements to keep cool all too quickly. Some of us may not be ready to bare all as our skin isn't quite prepped for Summer yet.. I have put together some of my favorite quick tips that will help you on your way to feeling Summer skin ready!


MY TOP 4 SUMMER SKIN TIPS

EXFOLIATE
My favorite way to exfoliate is with Frank Bod.. you have no doubt heard about it or you may have even used it but if you haven't yet than I suggest you get your hands on some ASAP it will leave your skin super soft and it smells like coffeeeee!  

MOISTURISE
I personally love to use a gradual tanning moisturiser to keep my skin hydrated as I love that with a hint of colour it also adds a healthy glow to my skin. Pure Tan have a really delicious smelling one I am a little obsessed with and use every day!

SUNSCREEN
The SPF numbers on your sunscreen do not necessarily mean they are more effective. Did you know that an SPF 50 protects only 2-4% more than an SPF 30? I say use a minimum of SPF 30 if you know you are going to be out in the sunshine for quite some time and always re-apply. Plus I find applying a foundation or tinted moisturiser with SPF to your face shouldn't feel as oily as applying a general sunscreen.

STAY HYDRATED
Fun fact our body is composed of about 60% water.. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of our bodies temperature. When I drink my daily intake of water I notice a major difference in the texture of my skin and general well being when I try my best to drink plenty of water each day and coconut water because it's delicious and nutritious (Currently loving Raw C Coconut water).

KEEP IT NEUTRAL

As the weather has been quite cold here on the Gold Coast the past couple of weeks (plus surrounding areas no doubt) it means I have been grabbing for darker colours when styling my outfits..for some reason my brain instinctively thinks I will be warmer in those.. which really isn't true at all!

When I think of neutrals they include white, grey and different shades of brown and beige. Wearing these tones in lush knits, cosy jackets styled back with white pants or even a blue wash denim can be a fresh take on a dreary winters day..it definitely helps lift my mood when I am wearing something a little lighter & brighter.

URBAN DECAY

"LET THE BEAUTY OF WHAT YOU LOVE BE WHAT YOU DO". – RUMI

urban decay

I've always loved putting on makeup, being a creative person I see it as art and actually feel excited when I get to play around with new looks or even just tweaking my day to day look with new products is fun too.

  Urban Decay makeup products are today's hot topic here on the blog! I'd heard great things as one of my girlfriends is obsessed with it & has only ever spoken (raved) about how 'AMMAZZING' it is! Once I heard the news that it would be coming to Australia and it was to be stocked exclusively at Mecca Maxima for the first time I was reallllly excited to get my hands on it and try it out for myself. So I excitedly opened each box like it was my birthday and tried them out (them being Naked 3 Pallete, Naked Concealer, Naked Power Foundation & Naked Face & Body Illuminating powder) and I am really happy with the products!!  

I have to say my favorite product is the eyeshadow palette as I love a natural/neutral/brown toned colour pallete when it comes to my eye makeup for day and for night. The shades in the Naked 3 pallet are really beautiful shades for just that & the pigmentation is great! Only minor thing I didn't like about it was the brush that came with it.. I don't normally use them (I just use my own mac or eco brush tools) but thought it may have been a good one being such a great brand, to me not so much. 

I am wanting to do a tutorial for you all soon of my day to day makeup look using some of these products and some of my other faves..keep an eye out!

FRESH FACED

"BEAUTY ISN'T ABOUT HAVING A PRETTY FACE. IT'S ABOUT HAVING A PRETTY MIND, A PRETTY HEART & MOST IMPORTANTLY, A BEAUTIFUL SOUL".


jeskaalee

When we look after ourselves & nourish our mind, body & soul we tend to see the difference inside & out. I for one am totally addicted to natural skincare lately & majority of the products I have tried out are all natural & not tested on animals too which is a major plus! I have stumbled across some really beautiful ones that I am in love with just over the past few months & I have shared some with you on Instagram & I will be sharing more with you here on the blog soon!

I decided I would test out some face masks & review them for you on my vlog channel to let you know my thoughts about the products & whether they worked for my skin or not. I tried out 3 x different brands & types of masks by Sanctuary Spa, Formula 10.0.6 & Premium Spa that I picked up from my local Priceline store & for pretty decent prices too!

I hope you enjoy the video and my weird dance moves filling in time while my masks set! Also if you love my channel I'd love for you to subscribe to keep up to date with new videos or if you just generally like my channel thats awesome too!

Enjoy & let me know if you give the masks a go for yourself in a comment below or email me on my contact page & insta is also a great place to chat too! x
