Impact of Covid-19 on skincare and beauty

Impact of Covid-19 on skincare and beauty  During the recent national UK lockdown we found that our skin has been negatively impacted by a number of bad habits. Staying at home has meant not wearing as much make-up as usual, but we have found that the following factors have contributed to the impact of our skin care: Lack of vitamin D due to poor natural sunlight outdoors has caused our skin to become even more prone to acne than usual. A recent study found that people with acne have lower levels of vitamin D than those without acne.

When our pores get clogged with oil and dirt, this can effectively cause breakouts in the form of...

What is double cleansing and why should we do it?

What is double cleansing? Double cleansing is the process of cleansing the skin twice, as in a two-step process, to provide the skin with a “deep clean”.

Benefits of plant-based skincare for Veganuary

It's #Veganuary and we pride ourselves on offering only plant-based skincare at Like It On Top. January is a month-long celebration of all things vegan, created to encourage non-vegans to try out the lifestyle.   Most cosmetics feature some form of animal-derived content, but at Like It On Top we only use botanical ingredients that work in harmony to support and nourish the skin. Our product range is natural, vegan and plantbased, meaning that we have replaced some traditional cosmetic ingredients with plant based options, such as using candelilla wax instead of beeswax. Candelilla wax is a wax derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub native to northern Mexico and the southwestern United States. We use candelilla wax to produce...
