DIY- Customise Converse👟

I have two pairs of Converse that are old and never wear anymore. I decided to customise them to improve how they looked and they turned out really well⭐ There are different ways you can customise Converse shoes and here are just two ideas. The first method uses Acrylic paints to create a Galaxy affect and the second uses Sharpie markers to create a pretty floral design.🌼

Converse shoes before customisation

1) Galaxy Converses

You will need:
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Paintbrushes
  • Paint Palettes
  • Sponge
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Converse shoes

  • Remove shoelaces from the Converse shoes
  • Cover the white rubber soles of the shoes and white logo with duct tape to prevent paint from getting on them
  • I cut the sponge into three parts to use for each colour of paint.
  • Pour paint into paint palettes. I used royal blue, light blue and lilac, however you can use whatever colours you want. You can mix different paints together to make different colours. Sponge the paint onto the canvas part of the shoe. Use a fine paintbrush to splash white acrylic paint onto the shoes to create a star-like affect. Leave the shoes overnight to dry. The next day, remove the duct tape and relace them.

2) Customise with Sharpies

You will need:
  • Sharpie markers
  • Converse shoes

You can draw any designs you like. I saw a floral design on Pinterest and thought it looked pretty cool. ⭐

My skincare routine🌺

Natural oils build up on your skin everyday. It is important to have a good skincare routine and everyone should take care of their skin, regardless of their age or gender.

Every morning, I clean my face with a damp facecloth and warm water, followed by moisturiser. My favourite brand of skincare products are No7. They have a great range of skincare creams and lotions and are good quality.

In the evening, I use cleansing lotion to remove any makeup and to clean my face. I apply cleansing lotion to cotton pads. Face cleansing should be done gently and not too harshly. After using cleansing lotion, I use a warm facecloth all over my face. The general rule of cleaning your face is to cleanse, tone, moisturise. I personally do not think this is necessary every time you clean your face. Using too many products or creams on your face can cause it to become very oily or greasy, causing spots.

I like to use a facemask once a week. Facemasks are applied for 10-15 minutes and help to clean pores. Facemasks come in different scents and it is recommended not to use a strong-smelling facemask if you have sensitive skin. There are different types of facemasks, some are creams and some are a sheet you place on your face while lying down. I personally prefer the cream types.

Taking care of the skin on your body as well as your face is necessary. Apply a good moisturiser all over your body regularly. Skin gets particularly dry during winter months. When shaving your legs or other bodyparts, you should moisturise after to prevent skin drying out. Non-scented moisturisers are recommended for sensitive skin. If your skin is sensitive, it means it is more prone to rashes or irritation.

Some of my favourite products include No7 Early Defence Night Cream, L’Oreal Skin Expert Pure Clay Glow Mask, Lush Eau Roma Toner Water.
