How do you feel in the morning?
Do you struggle to get up, get the coffee, run out the door, miss the cate, jump over the dog and end up in the car driving the kids to school, and then take a look at yourself.
You need to take some responsibility of your life.
Well take 5 minutes in the morning, plan your day, take some deep breaths, put on that new lipstick, fix your hair, aod spray on a light scent.
This will help you prepare for your day.

Take a good look at your self. Do you like what you see??
If not fix it!
Only you can.
Time to get your hair cut or coloured.
Skin feels tired - Or you are tired.
Why not book yourself that facial treatment or massage. You will help the economy but you will also feel a lot better.
Money tight, well why not get the kids to give you a bit of massage or if you are lucky your other half might give you a massage.
Or another idea why not give yourself a nice facial this weekend at home.
Get your nice cleanser, double cleanse your skin, apply a nice exfoliant, massage gently in and then rinse off, then put a hydrating or beautiful instant glowing mask on. Leave on for 10minutes then rinse. Feel the difference. It really does make your skin feel better.
Then of course now you can go and have a happy day.

Is Simplicity To your Skin The Key

When simplicity will do! Feel like trying a new angle in skin care. The latest trend is using some simple products at home for at home skin treatments.
Here is some great products for home skin treatments
  • Herbal acne remedy,The oil of the Australian tea tree contains terpinen-4-ol, an antibacterial agent that kills zit-causing bacteria. It can be used directly but use with caution and apply sparingly. It also acts as a solvent, so it can stop oily matter from clogging up sebaceous glands and forming pimples. A recent study compared 5 percent tea-tree-oil gel to 5 percent benzoyl peroxide (a common blemish fighter) in a treatment of mild to moderate acne. "It was found that both worked equally well to get rid of whiteheads and blackheads," says Jules S. Abadi, a New York City dermatologist. Plus, tea-tree oil has none of the side effects -- such as dryness -- of chemical acne antidotes.
  • Lavender the rescue in a bottle - maybe used directly on skin.

    This was the start of the popularity of lavender oil, and it is still one of the most used essential oils today.

    It is with good reason why lavender oil is one of the most favorite essential oils, as it has wonderful qualities and also smells great.

    It is a calming, relaxing oil, which combats stress and crisis, while the antiseptic properties help with colds, flu and other ailments.

    It is excellent for asthma and migraines.

    Apart from that it supports female health and it has a healing effect on the skin, while preventing scarring and balancing the skin. Try on a tissue for inhaling for sinus. I love a couple of drops in a pure unscented jojoba based cream for a perfect body and face cream.

  • Unscented Jojoba Cream is a silky smooth, light unscented cream for the face and body. It’s formulated with a generous amount of moisturising Jojoba oil, a natural plant wax with a similar structure to our own skin oil.

The Unscented cream is an ideal alternative to massage oil where a topical application is preferred, but it does not have the oiliness of a massage oil. Essential oil(s) readily blend into the cream to create the product just right for your needs. By making up small amounts of the cream, it is easy to customize the cream to suit your skin as it changes with the seasons.

Winter skin

Winter skin

We all like the cooler weather but when the temperature becomes cold we tend to turn up the heating, which irritates a lot of people’s skins.

Does your skin have any of the following – dehydration, tightness, redness, irritation, fine lines, or just plain dry- then winter will not be helping.

This is when we have to do a little bit more to protect our skin. Not only on our face, body, hands and feet can also be affected.

Remember this is the time to make sure your fluid level is still high lots of water, when it is cooler most of us forget to drink and rehydrate our body’s and this will show in our skins. Consider this that the skin is the largest organ of your body so remember that water is a vital element in providing you with a better looking skin.

Take a look at your moisturizer – did you buy it is summer? You may need to start using a slightly richer textured cream to give more protection from the environment.

My favorite is to add a hydrating serum two of the best on the market are Payot  Hydrofluide and Dermalogica Hydrating Booster both add a huge hydrating level to the skin without adding oil. This will make sure that your skin stays moist and hydrated but does not clog your skin.

This is a great time to also look at the type of exfoliation you are using and how often. We all end up with a lot of dead cells in winter so a gentle exfoliant is important to improve texture and product absorption for more rapid results. Two exciting winter exfoliants are Payots Gommage Fondant a excellent exfoliant for dry and sensitive skin and the new Thermafoliant by Dermalogica with a slightly warming texture this is a beautiful treatment for the cooler months.

Make sure once you have exfoliate that you restore balance by applying a soothing hydrating mask, two beautiful masks that will do the trick are Payot Hydrating Masque and Dermalogica Multi Vitamin Power recovery mask.

Most people will find that the skin on the body also gets effected so now is the time to slather that beautiful body cream after showering or bathing and making sure that you apply your hand cream after washing up so that dry dehydrated lines do not show on the back of your hands that show ageing.

Now is the time to get out exercise by doing a bit of walking, enjoy a nice cab sav or relaxing bath or both.
