Water, Water Everywhere
Kiss and make up...
Dramatic climate changes can play havoc with the skin, so I am sharing some ideas about how to protect your skin:
Water - yep, the old favourite - drink plenty of water. If you struggle with too much cold water, try hot water with a slice of lemon or lime, or even a little fresh ginger…
This month I am sharing some ideas about lips for you to try:
Pinks - blue toned colours will make your teeth look whiter - this applies to reds and pinks. As a general rule, paler colours suit paler skins, whilst darker skins can take deeper and brighter colours. But don't be afraid to experiment...

Colour Me Gorgeous
This month I'm going to share some handy info with you about serums:
Different to moisturiser - serums have a higher concentrate of ingredients than moisturisers, and also a different structure, making them lighter in texture. They are little work horses, working behind the scenes to improve your skin.
A little oasis in your desert...
This month I'm going to look at nail colour trends for Autumn/Winter 2018/19:
Take care of your body and mind
It’s important to keep your mind and body hydrated all year round. Check out my tips to make it easier:
Water - yep - I know I said last time, but really this cannot be said enough! Please make sure you drink enough - in the heat, you should be drinking at least 3 litres per day. I know it's a tall order, but your brain and your body will thank you.
Be gone damned hair...
Of course, it's important to look after yourself all year round. But, in the Summer, we often forget things like moisturising, because we are not so conscious of the drying effects, usually associated with wind and central heating.
Nails get a makeover for Spring and Summer
Obviously, there are lots of things you can do at home to remove unwanted hair. Choices should be based on the area of the body and personal preference.
Shaving - still the most popular method, and the fastest. Invest in a razor designed for women, as they tend to have a much more mobile head, for the curves of our body.
The eyes have it...
So what's on trend for Spring/Summer 2018 in the world of nails?
Length - as usual there is an element of anything goes - short but nicely shaped is still a classic and works, but I do see a lot of longer nails now - both the always on trend oval, and the more "Fifty Shades" pointed stiletto nails. Those are not for the faint hearted, or for mums with small children!
Let's face it
Last time we talked about eyes, we talked about eye care. This time, we are going to focus more on eyebrows. So, what can you do to improve these unappreciated, but very important, facial features?
- Shaping - if you are going to tackle shaping yourself, don't get carried away. As you can see from the image above, your eyebrows should start where the vertical line is - an imaginary line from the edge of your nose upwards.
We have talked about looking after your facial skin before, and all those tips remain valid - wearing sunglasses, SPF protection, and regularly moisturising etc. So, what else can you do?
- Mobile phone - if you talk on your phone a lot, make sure you keep it clean with anti-bacterial wipes. Germs from your fingers, and make up build up, can cause breakouts on your skin.
