Flying sucks for your skin, basically. I heard that water evaporates at a much faster rate up in the air, just imagine what it's doing to your skin. A couple of weeks ago, I made the long journey to Dubai. Ok, the journey was 8 hours long but that's 8 hours too long right? Being a beauty addict, I came well prepared for this battle. These are some of the products I took with me to make sure that I left that flight looking good, cos you know what they looking good is feeling good (or something like that, please correct in the comments below).

This time last week, I was melting in the scorching Dubai heat. It was 45 degrees, I love summer and warm weather but that too much. Even though, I hardly felt like wearing any makeup I always take the essentials with me - for you know those just in case situations.

I didn't take any foundation because I don't like the feeling of it on my skin in the heat. But I did take this Revlon ColourStay concealer, which is pretty heavy duty stuff without it being so heavy on the skin. This is one of the only concealers from the highstreet that is a good colour match for me. I would apply the concealer, where I needed it and then just buff out towards the other areas of my skin. I found that worked really well, I am sure I will be continuing this little method all summer long. I also took the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, I love the way this makes my skin look. It creates a smooth and dewy base for my makeup to sit on. I will admit, this cream is quite heavy and not the best for hot weather. Unless you have really dry skin. The flying and the change in weather really messed around with my skin and I had loads of dry patches everywhere.

I am trying to grow my nails, let me tell you something maintaining long nails isn't a easy job. They were breaking, so I decided to try out a nail strengthening treatment. The treatment worked but it messed up my cuticles - I will be honest it was my fault I wasn't careful with the application of the treatment. 

I've had a lifelong obsession with my hands and nails. A hand care routine is something that is very real in my life. I recently added this cuticle oil to my hand care regimen from Dadi'Oil in the hopes that cuticles would be moisturised, and perfectly manicured - one step to the hands of my dreams. 

I honestly don't know how this nail treatment came into my possession. Dadi oil is a 95% organic treatment, enriched with vitamin E to intensely hydrate dry cuticles. It also promotes new nail growth, because it increases circulation in the nail bed. I really like this oil, I have one in bag and one by the telly - the brush applicator makes it really easy to apply and its lightweight so it absorbs quickly. My nails definitely feel stronger. 

If you are as into your nail care as me, I would definitely recommend this product. I have had a little search online and it's available on amazon for £8. Quite expensive but one bottle has lasted me for a long long time.
