Why A Spray Tan Is Perfect For Winter…

During the Winter months, a spray tan may be the last thing on your mind. I mean spray tans are for Summer right? Well actually no, there are so many more benefits to a Winter glow than you might think. Therefore, this month I wanted to share with you exactly why a spray tan is perfect for Winter…

  • Feel Happier…

The winter months can be cold, dark and a bit depressing to say the least. But did you know that by having a tan, it can actually help boost your mood? Its a pretty common fact that we all feel better with a tan so why make winter months duller than they need to be?

  • Feel Healthier…

We can all feel that we over indulge a little at this time of year. But did you know that a spray tan can enhance the appearance of your skin? It also allows you to feel slimmer, healthier and more toned. Tanning isn’t just a solution applied to your skin, it’s a mindset game changer!

  • Feel Confident…

With Christmas parties and other events over the festive period, nothing boosts your confidence more than feeling beautiful. A light, natural glow has the power to make you feel the most beautiful version of yourself.

With shorter days and longer nights, the feeling of wanting to hibernate (especially when the alarm goes off on those cold, drizzly mornings) can leave us feeling like Summer is so far away. So why not create your own sunshine? I tan all year round because it makes me feel all of the above and more… and I think we all deserve to feel this way!

If you would like more information about how we can create the perfect Winter glow for you, then feel free to leave me a comment below or pop over to my Facebook page.

Until next time, glow and be you!

Behind The Scenes: London Spray Day With Sienna X

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty - London Spray Day

A few weeks ago, on a wet and windy September day I headed into London to assist Sienna X’s Brand Ambassador, Carly Hobbs at a press event which was being held at Sienna X’s PR Agency, which is just off Oxford Street.

For me, there is just something about London that I love, the hustle and bustle, the sights and the fact that you are never far away from a coffee shop! Anyway I digress, as I got off the tube at Tottenham Court Road, the offices were just a short walk away (luckily the rain had stopped, so at least I wouldn’t arrive, looking like a drowned rat)

After arriving at the offices, I was greeted by Lily, who works for the PR agency. Soon after, Carly arrived and we went went downstairs to the tanning suite. It was beautifully set up full of products and Carly began to run through the schedule for the day.

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty - Behind the Scenes

Appointments started at 2pm and would run through until 7pm. We would be tanning members of the press, magazine editors, beauty bloggers and more.

The day absolutely flew by and before I knew it, it was 7.00pm! I’d had the best day talking all things tanning and helping the press to glow, the Sienna X way! It was time to get packed up and head back to Waterloo for the journey home.

As I walked back to the tube station, I couldn’t help but have a huge smile on my face! This day had been something I’d been wanting to do for so long in more ways than one…

For those of you who know me, you’ll know that one of my fears is the underground (sorry I’m going to rephrase that, WAS one of my fears!) It had always freaked me out, for one thing, the escalators are almost vertical and secondly, I’ve always had a fear of being lost by myself, having no clue how to get back.

When I say it out loud, it sounds so ridiculous. I know hundreds of people do it every day, you may even be one of them, who literally jump on and off the tube and don’t even think about it. But for me, the story was different, However, I faced my fear and did it anyway! Sometimes you’ve just got to pull up your sparkly big girl pants, believe in yourself and do these things, right? Right!

So, in more ways than one, this will be a day that I’ll never forget! A huge thank you to Sienna X, Carly and B The Agency for having me!

Until next time, be brave and embrace every opportunity (even if it makes you want to pee your pants)!

How To Revive Your Skin After Summer…

With the Summer holidays almost over, there is no better time to replenish and revive your skin. Daily life can take its toll on our skin, sun exposure, pollution and make up can all contribute to our skin feeling dehydrated and lacking lustre.

I love to try new products, but my skin is quite sensitive so I have to be careful what I use. However, I’ve loved using the Liz Earle skincare range and this month, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite products and help you revive your skin after Summer…

Cleanse & Polish…

From the first time I used this cleanser, my skin felt instantly cleaner and fresher. Simply apply one to two pumps and massage onto dry skin, working in circular motions over the face and neck. Rinse your cloth under hand-hot water and squeeze out the excess. Remove cleanser and finish by splashing cold water over face. I use this both in the morning and the evening.

Instant Boost Skin Tonic…

After cleansing I apply the Skin Boost Tonic to a cotton pad and sweep over my face and neck. The toner contains Aloe Vera and Calendula Extract which are both known for their hydrating and soothing properties. Some toners I have used in the past, left my skin feeling dry, but this one leaves my skin feeling cool and refreshed.

Skin Repair Moisturiser…

This lightweight moisturiser is easily absorbed in to the skin and unlike some moisturisers won’t leave your skin feeling overloaded and greasy. It contains Avocado Oil and Echinacea Extract which help to nourish and condition the skin beautifully. Oh and it smells divine!

Gentle Face Exfoliator…

This product is gentle, yet so effective and perfect for when your skin feels a little dull or congested. It leaves my skin feeling brighter, smoother and refreshed.

Deep Cleansing Mask…

I have found this a great product to use, especially when at certain times of the month, my skin can be prone to breakouts. The mask contains green clay which helps reduce oiliness and draw out impurities to leave skin feeling balanced and calm.

I’m not an affiliate for the brand, I just love to share products that work. I also believe that every woman deserves to feel beautiful and confident in her own skin. If you would like to find out more about Liz Earle and the full range of products available, you can visit her website here.

Until next time, enjoy being the beautiful you!

Love,
