If we let them, old scar and acne marks can sometimes make us a bit self-conscious, particularly if they’re located somewhere quite visible. Most of us have them and they’re one of those things that other people probably hardly notice, seeing just our natural beauty. In an ideal world, we would give our little skin imperfections no thought at all and proudly claim our ‘war wounds’ and marks that show we’ve lived! However, if you would rather try to tackle them, there are many things that you can try these days. From lotions and potions, to more expensive laser therapies to reduce and sometimes drastically minimise scaring.

There’s nothing like a bit of rain to ruin the makeup look you’ve put together! Whether you’re on a night out or it’s a day look you’ve put together, a downpour or a splash of rain can be a real pain. The real key to maintaining your makeup look in bad weather is the products you choose. The most important thing is to choose waterproof eyeliner, mascara and eyebrow color as these are the darkest and will make the most mess of your makeup if they get wet and run. Jet black tears streaming down your face are never ever a great look! As always, there are absolutely loads of price points to choose from – you can spend a little, or a lot to find the perfect waterproof essentials.
