How to keep your skin smooth and supple during the Winter months and all year round

With winter here to stay and the temperature in the UK teetering close to 0 oc keeping your skin looking fresh, smooth and moisturised over the next few cold months is important.

Below you will read my shower routine including my daily body exfoliating regime. 

What is Exfoliation
It is a process that effectively takes away dead skin cells from the epidermis level of your body and face. Doing this on a weekly basis can help to unclog pores, blackheads, and reduce blemishes for smooth and radiant skin.

Why exfoliating should be a important step in your shower regime
Helps to increase blood circulation leading to a more youthful and glowing appearance 

Exfoliating is good for all skin types from dry, normal, oily and sensitive as it can rid dry skin build up which causes the skin to look rough and dull, reduce the appearance of damaged skin marks such as spots and help to unclog blocked pores. Leaving a smoother, brighter and healthier skin

A mini pampering session in the bath or shower can help to improve your overall health and well being.

What can I use to exfoliate?
I having been using scrubber gloves daily for the last decade. You can purchase a pair from Superdrug, Boots and The Body Shop they range from 0.99p to £3.99 in price. 

However, having attended The Clothes Show I received the Zero Skin Charcoal infused scrubber sponge in my goody bag. This scrubber uses the mineral found in Bamboo Charcoal such as potassium, calcium, iron and sodium to detoxify, cleanse and exfoliate your skin. I love love love it and the sponge has become a stable in my shower routine. I use this scrubber sponge daily with an antibacterial soap to buff, cleanse and my skin.

I've exfoliated, what's next?
This is an important, if not the most important step following a body exfoliation. Moisturise. Do not forget to apply a moisturising body lotion/oil on to your refreshingly rejuvenated skin! 

As always I use Coconut Merchant's Organic, Raw Coconut Oil as its deeply moisturising, hydrates and makes my skin feel and look so smooth and supple. For those who don't like the feel of oil on their skin why not try a butter based cream such as Palmers cocoa butter or for a lighter cream try Lush’s Ro Argan Body Conditioner which smells incredible and can be applied straight after your sower to lock in extra moisture.

Skepta x Ally Pally

It's been a week since greatness took to the stage at Alexandra Palace. Skepta the musical sensation that has took grime from the streets of North London to global stages skanked, rapped and repeated his songs for an hour a half. 

From diss track Nasty, to moshpit inducing Man and the legendary Shutdown. Skepta's sold out show was one full of energy and special guests. Grime legends JME, Kano, Giggs, Wretch 32, Novelist and D Double E, Lethal Bizzle, Section Boyz and Shorty came out to perform their own songs including Three Wheels Up, Whippin Excursion, Man Don't Care. As well as collaboration from Konnichiwa including Lyrics, That's Not Me and Ladies Hit Squad. 

2016 has been a great year for Skepta from his critically acclaimed Album Konnichiwa, to performing at Glastonbury and his recent Mercury Prize Award win in September show Skepta and his crew BBK propelled to new heights. 

For me Konnichiwa is political and revolutionary, the album encourages listeners to embrace freedom and to be true to themselves in a world of corruption, heightened celebrity and gun violence. 

"We don't listen to no politician" - Shutdown

"Tell the President we ain't forgot, tell the Prime Minister we still remember... Nobody's voting for your corrupted agenda" - Konnichiwa 

"The feds wanna shift man" - Crime Riddim

"Yeah, I don't care about VIP, I got very important places to be" - Corn on the curb

"it's not safe for the block, not even for the cops" - Ain't Safe

Despite Skepta's global success and the many fans worldwide he has amassed, my sister and I were still left baffled a day after the show when John Aizlewood a journalist for The Evening Standard article* complained about restarted songs. Erm, it's called a reload. The mixed review highlighted that despite enjoying the music many still do not understand the culture and origins behind it. Grime has not come out of nowhere, grime has been here. The 'resurgence of grime' something that Skepta himself has touched on: "People who think grime is back are sheep that follow the media," said the star in a recent interview. "People who aren't sheep know grime never went away." 

The show closed with an energetic performance of Man, with Skepta joined on an engulfed stage by close friends and family. It was a celebration and I enjoyed every minute, humbled by the success of an Artist who has chosen to live life freely. 

To Skepta and the mandem, I can't wait for Wembley.
