Why Your Self Care Matters Now More Than Ever

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

Self care is something we often forget to make a priority at the best of times, but now more than ever I really think it matters. With the recent Coronavirus situation changing many of our lives, I wanted to share some tips with you on how you can incorporate a little self care into your life.

Start Something New…

Do you have a hobby? If not, maybe now is the perfect time to start. What do you like doing? What helps relax your mind and just escape for a while? Up to now, I’d never really had a hobby, I’m a bit of a workaholic, so planning work things, even on my days off didn’t really feel like work because I enjoyed it. But I came to realise, I needed something more; so at I’ve taken this opportunity to try my hand at learning modern calligraphy.

Create an Evening Routine…

First of all, I light my favourite scented candle, this for me is always from the Gatcombe Candle Co. range. These candles are by far, the best I’ve ever had. The stunning scents are out of this world and really help me to relax. I loved them so much, I became a stockist!

When it comes to my skincare, I’ve been using products that are infused with essential oils such as The Cleansing Balm and The Facial Oil from Sienna X. Not only do these products feel amazing on my skin, they also help to relax my senses too. My final step for my facial is using The Miracle Mask, I  lay on my bed allowing the mask to do its magic, close my eyes and listen to relaxing music while the beautiful scent of Tigerlilly Blossom fills my room.

Calm Your Mind…

If you are like me and struggle to switch off before bed, maybe try an audio book or podcast. There are lots of different categories to choose from, so something for everyone. This just helps to quieten my thoughts and relax, allowing me to get a better nights sleep.

I hope you’ve found this useful, if you have any tips, feel free to share them with me in a comment below. In the meantime, stay safe.

How A Tan Will Boost Your Happiness and Confidence

October Blog Post

With the colder months just around the corner, those long Summer days might be feeling like a distant memory. But fear not, because this month, I’m sharing how a spray tan can boost your happiness and confidence.

I truly believe that a spray tan is so much more than just a solution being applied to your skin. I think it’s pure happiness for your mind and body too! By having a light natural glow, this will help you feel happier and healthier.

We all know that a tan makes us feel better, but did you know it can also make you feel slimmer and more toned? Yes, you did read that right! It’s a fact ladies, a tan will make you feel the most beautiful version of yourself and leave you glowing with confidence.

The next few months bring shorter days and longer nights with a real lack of sunshine, so why not create your own? Stepping out into the cold air can often play a part in our skin drying out and what better way to rehydrate it than with a spray tan that really helps to enhance the appearance of your skin too.

For me, a tan doesn’t just make me feel happier, it makes me feel more confident too and I would love every woman reading this to feel the same way. Let’s embrace what we’ve been given, rather than apologise or feel rubbish about it. Body confidence is a huge insecurity for many of us and if I can help you to shine a little brighter, then that’s when I know the magic of what I do has happened!

If you would like any additional information on self tanning products or a professional spray tan, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch by leaving a comment below or drop me a message over on my Facebook page.

Until next time, glow and be you!

Behind The Scenes: My Evening Skincare Routine

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty May Blog Post

I often get asked about the products I use for make up and skincare, so with that in mind I thought I would share with you my evening skincare routine. I love nothing more than finishing a long day, coming home, changing in to my pjs and taking off my make up. I really enjoy cleansing “the day away” and allowing my skin to breathe. My skin can be sensitive so I always need to be a little careful of what I use. To remove my eye make up, I use Micellar Water. It’s really gentle and removes even my waterproof mascara with ease.

Step One..

I start by applying apply my Cleanse and Polish all over my face and massage in. I do this on to dry skin, working in small circular motions all over my face and neck. I would then rinse my cotton cloth under hot water and remove. The cloths help to remove dead skin cells and instantly leave my skin feeling brighter and smoother. I would then splash cold water over my face to close my pores.

Step Two…

Next I would apply a few drops of Instant Boost Skin Tonic to a cotton pad and wipe all over my face and neck. This helps to brighten, revive and soothe my skin, plus it’s alcohol free so doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight.Step Three…

Finishing off with my Moisturiser. I use the one for dry/sensitive skin but there is also a normal/combination one too. It gently restores moisture, softens skin and protects against dryness. The scent of all of the products is absolutely divine too!Untitled design-2Step Four…

Finally before bed, I apply one to two pumps of the Superskin Concentrate into my hands, rub together and massage all over my face and neck and let it work it’s magic! It helps to rebalance and plump skin for a healthier appearance. This is one of my absolute favourite products!

I cannot recommend the Liz Earle skincare range highly enough, and can honestly say, my skin has never felt so clean. You can find out all about the amazing skincare range and more, over on the Liz Earle website. I’m not an affiliate for Liz Earle, I just love recommending products that work, and make me feel lovely when I use them.

Until next time, love the skin you’re in!

Love,
