Since reading Caroline Hirons many posts on skincare routines, it has become a vital part of my daily life to make sure that every night I take my make up off and cleanse my skin. However, Caroline Hirons is very much about splashing out and and using the very best products for your skin. As a 20 something year old recent graduate it is not always possible to spend a lot of money on skincare, therefore I have come up with a daily routine that works perfectly for me using only budget friendly skincare. This routine is what I have been using all throughout the winter when my skin is at its driest and it has done wonders keeping my face hydrated and plumped.

So, without further ado, here is a list of things that I have found can lead to a happy lifestyle:
Anxiety. Something that everyone will go through at some point in their lives. But for some it is overwhelmingly the worst part of their daily life. That’s what it’s like for me. I think to start with I never really realised that it was anxiety that I experience, I always saw it as me being a ‘worrier’ or a ‘stress head’. I think it’s only been in the last couple of years that I’ve been able to pick out my anxieties and realise that this is what it is.
