It's unusual for me to get really excited and hyped up about a skincare range and it's been a long time since I've had an a noticeable effective skincare range. Lately my stress levels combined with hormonal imbalances have played havoc with my skin, leaving it spot prone and a combination of oily and dry. Usually foaming cleansers leave the area around my nose really dry and serums leave my skin feeling sticky but I have finally found a cleanser and serum that compliment my skin type perfectly and leave my skin feeling smooth, clear and really soft.
BRYT skincare is a range of botanical products created for men and women of all ages, but especially for teens and young adults.
To build a custom skincare routine, its recommended that you start with a cleanser, follow up with a serum and then finish off with a moisturiser.
For the cleanser, I've been using BRYT Cleanse (£12.50, 150ml). This foaming cleanser washes away all traces of grime and impurities and can be used along with the BRYT mitt fto gently exfoliate . The foam is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin! It's key ingredients include organic Australian wild plums, aloe vera, Allantoin found in Comfrey roots, olive oil, apple extracts and essential oils of bergamot (effective against acne), mandarin, orange, rose absolute, mimosa and sandalwood. My skin feels luxuriously smooth and soft after the cleanser and I've noticed after two weeks of using it I have having a lot less breakouts.
For the serum range , I used the BRYT Calm Serum, (£16.00, 30ml). This serum was specifically created for combination to oily skin and has skin-balancing active ingredients that penetrate deep down, helping to regulate and normalise the skin. The key ingredients in the serum, in addition to BRYT's usual organic Australian wild plums, aloe vera and Allantoin are watercress; nettle; horseradish; Kalahari oil; and essential oils of mimosa, jasmine, sandalwood and rose absolute.
The serum is absorbed into skin quickly and doesn't leave behind a sticky residue. I finished off using the BRYT Day cream,( £17.50, 50ml) Suitable for all skin types, this light, mattifying day moisturiser contains SPF15 and hydrates the skin without clogging the pores, while simultaneously absorbing excess serum. Natural antioxidants help to protect the skin against free radicals which damage DNA. The cream's key ingredients include African Mongongo oil; and essential oils of green tea, bergamot, lemon and mandarin. The mattifying effect of this moisturiser is effective enough to be used as a base for make up and even alleviate the need for CC creams and pressed powders.
Combine this skincare routine with a healthy diet, lots of water and plenty of sleep and you'll be sure to have clearer, softer skin within a matter of days. The full range of BRYT Skincare is available online at www.brytskincare.co.uk and also arrived in Waitrose stores back in July.

Since the 11th of May 2011, I have gone from being obese to healthy, rescued myself from diabetes and hypertension and taught myself how to cook along the way. I've gone from being the teen that bunked off PE lessons, to the adult whose hobbies include lifting weights, yoga, dance and mixed martial arts.
My main rule is to live a lifestyle that's fad-free! I encourage everyone to stay well away from faddy diets that could potentially cause more health problems than they solve.
It's all about creating a sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle change.
