Desk Workout - The Stomach!

Finding time to spend an hour or so at the gym is difficult, especially when you feel like there are simply not enough hours in the day. 

The easiest area to target is the stomach. Sit in your chair properly, this will also help your posture, and contract the abdominal muscles simply pulling these in - hold this for a few seconds before you release. You can repeat this exercise as many time as you like throughout the day. However, don't do this immediately after your meals.

The best thing about this exercise, is that no one will know you are doing it.

Bare Hands


As spring is arriving and your hands are slowly starting to emerge from woolly gloves, it's time to take a little bit of extra care. 

Prevent your hands from getting dry by using a hand cream or a moisturiser to keep them soft and smooth. Apply the product all over the hands, even massaging this into the cuticles!! Looking after your hands is important to give them a youthful appearance, as well as preventing them from sun damage.

A Pop of Colour

One of the beauty trends this year is to keep your make-up natural and fresh with a pop of colour on the lips... definitely something everyone can work. 

Keeping your base make-up looking natural is key, the term less is more applies. Heavy foundations don't work for this look, as you don't want a 'cakey' look, choose a lightweight foundation or BB cream.

Your eyes will only need a brush of mascara to keep your lashes looking natural yet more defined. Choosing a brown mascara can create a softer look. 

It's all about the lips, whether you choose orange, purple, red or pink... it's about being bright! This flash of colour will brighten up your look and make it look like you've spent hours getting ready when it's only taken you a matter of minutes.

Will you be trying out this beauty trend?

The Ageing Habits

Some habits are just too hard to break, but when certain habits can actual age you I think they will make it a little easier to break them!

Over Exfoliation 
Exfoliating too much will only damage the skin leaving it feeling sore and red... simply exfoliate the skin once or twice a week!

The term less is more certainly applies to this habit. Too many products with an ingredients list a mile long is a huge turn off, all those extra ingredients can cause your skin to breakout and leave it feeling sensitive! Use products are different times across the day to avoid overloading your skin.

Cleanse Properly
Removing your make-up with only face wipes is a habit everyone needs to kick. Cleanse properly with water to prevent your skin from getting dry and irritated.
