The Hair Wonder

Keeping your skin healthy and youthful is one thing, but your hair is another.

Not looking after your hair can lead to it looking dull and lifeless... but it can also age you, which is something no-one wants! I have a homemade hair treatment that is perfect for all hair types, and uses only one ingredient.

The 'must-have' ingredients is... eggs! This may sound rather horrible as raw eggs are slimy and gooey, but it really does work wonders. The yolk is great for moisturising, while the white, removes unwanted oils.

For normal hair, use the whole egg to condition the hair; use only the egg whites to treat oily hair and egg yolks are fabulous to moisturise dry, brittle hair. Apply to your hair and leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with cool water as you don't want the egg to cook, plus this helps add shine back to your hair.

Doing this once a month while help revitalise your hair, leaving it feeling soft and smooth!

DIY Ice Cube Facial

Ice cubes... are not only to be used to help keep you cool on a hot summers day, they can also be used as a facial!

It may sound weird, but... using ice can help rejuvenate your skin. All you have to do is take an ice cube, wrap in a paper towel and glide this gently over your face and neck. You can use the ice directly on your face, but the extreme cold might break capillaries.

This quick and easy facial, helps to tighten the skin therefore helping slow down the effects of ageing... it can also soothe redness, tighten pores and promote blood circulation.

Have you ever tried the Ice Cube facial?

Skincare made simple!

Some people love spending time on their skincare/beauty routines, but for those ladies who feel like time is not on their side, I have some tips to help make those routines simple and keep your skin in top condition!

• Cleanse twice a day. Doing this will help to remove dirts and oils that get trapped in the pores... do this first thing in the morning, to remove access oils produced overnight, and in the evening to remove pollution and dirt your skin has had to tackle throughout the day.

• Moisturise twice a day. Ideally, do this after cleansing to help hydrate your skin. Choosing one with anti-ageing ingredients and properties, will help reduce fine lines.

• Remember to take your skincare down to your neck. It's the area that everyone forgets about, but it's also the area that is usually exposed to sunlight, resulting in the area becoming delicate to ageing. Take your cleanser and moisturiser down your neck to help fight signs of ageing.

Oil Rush

Oil isn't just for your body and hair... it's for your face too! You might instantly think that using an oil will create a shiny complexion and may even cause spots to surface, but trust me, face oils are everywhere at the moment. Choosing the right one can help revitalise your skin and play a part in keeping it looking youthful. These can help tackle ageing, hydrate the skin and brighten up a dull complexion - it really is great skincare product to have in your routine.  

Many people are worried that these oils can be quite heavy and cause spots - think again! Most oils now are very lightweight meaning they absorb quickly into the skin and don't clog up pores. You can still use a facial oil with your skin is oily, many people tend to turn away from them but don't, using an oil based cleansing product on this skin type is perfect as oil attracts oil, meaning all the pore-blocking excess sebum produced will be picked up like a magnet. 

Don't just save your facial oil as an overnight treatment, although this is a fab way to use it, you can apply a small amount to the skin for an instant dewy glow, which is something that we all want! 

TOP TIP: Warm a few drops of oil into the palms of your hand, apply to your face sweeping outwards and upwards, and don't forget your neck and chest. Gently massage into the skin, being delicate and gentle around the eyes, leave this to sink in fully for 20 minutes and your skin will feel hydrated and leave you with a glow.

Beauty Sleep

It's a little known fact that we all need our beauty sleep! Having a good nights sleep not only effects our mood and the way we may act, but is also has an impact in the way we look.

While you are sleeping your skin and body goes into repair mode, this is when new skin cells grow and replace the older ones, it's all about restoring, repairing and rebalancing! Lack of sleep will disrupt these processes, as well as leaving an effect on your skin such as dark circles around your eyes and a dull complexion.

Ideally, around seven to nine hours sleep a night is needed... of course this varies depending on your age. Getting the right amount will leave you feeling more alert and ready for the day, your skin will also appear healthier and more refreshed!
