Top tips to look your best, no matter what the weather…

FB_IMG_1456911510572Well, supposedly spring is round the corner but there is still a distinct chill in the air, which can play havoc with our skin and general health. Cold temperatures, an A to Z of storms and the bracing wind can leave you thinking you’re destined to have sullen, dry skin and frizzy hair – but it doesn’t have to be that way! These top beauty tips for all seasons, especially the colder months, will help you stay glowing and gorgeous – no matter what the weather!

Time to get your H20 fix…

The Christmas party season is well behind us, so now is the time to dose up on the good stuff as we head towards the warmer and often dreaded ‘dare to bare’ months.

In winter, it’s likely we will feel less thirsty but it’s still important we get the recommended amount of water each and every day to help keep ourselves – and skin – hydrated, inside and out. In addition to drinking plenty of water, herbal teas, diluted sugar free fruit drinks, why not try clear soups as a tasty way of topping up your water levels and flushing out those dreaded toxins. By the summer months, your skin will be glowing, gorgeous and cellulite will appear less obvious or non existent – believe us, you’ll be glad you topped up your H20 consumption.

Also, why not try juicing? It’s a quick and easy way to load your body with essential nutrients. Our previous blog is full of tasty detox recipes, so why not give them a go?

SPF is always necessary, even when it’s cold outside!

You may think that just because it’s cold outside, that sun protection is not needed. But that is not the case as UV rays are still potent even in the winter months and can still cause sun damage. Try switching to moisturiser and/or foundation which have built-in SPF to adopt a fuss-free way to incorporate sun protection into your daily routine.

Your lips deserve to be luscious all year long!

If you’re feeling self-conscious about a dry, flaky pout then try an exfoliant on lips to get rid of flaky patches and as tempting it may be, fight the urge to constantly lick your lips as it only dries them out more. Try a lip balm which is both moisturising and natural and doesn’t include any drying ingredients such as camphor and menthol, which tend to worsen a cracked, inflamed mouth.

Feed your skin from within…

There’s nothing more beautiful than a natural glow and did you know that certain foods can really help? Try foods such as oily fish like salmon and tuna (high in omega-3 which help plump up skin’s collagen production), spinach and avocadoes (high in vitamin E, which protects skin from UV rays and cell damage) and vitamin C-rich foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits (they’ll help keep wrinkles at bay). Sugar won’t be doing any favours for sallow winter skin, so get snacking on seeds and nuts for a zinc boost, essential for preventing rashes and unwanted skin irritations.

To keep your skin in tip top condition all year round, why not try the our NEW hydra facial which can give you amazing results transforming tired, sallow and dull skin, into skin that looks beautiful, soft and supple. THIS is the hyaluronic acid approach to rehydrate your skin.

How to find the perfect eyebrow shape for you….

Before-and-Afters-Fair_HRWell thanks to catwalk trends, eyebrows continue to be a hot topic for debate and it seems now, more than ever before, the bigger the better (thanks for that Cara!). But we are not all blessed with luscious, glossy thick eyebrows, so it’s therefore important that rather than force an unnatural shape, we find a shape and style that suits us as individuals. This post is all about learning how to enhance your natural eyebrows with minimal tools (and less plucking!).

First things first, locate the start and end points of your brows.

To do this, the easiest way to start is by lining up your tweezers along the side of your nose. This should enable you to see that the front of your brows align with the upper bridge of your nose. Very minimal tweezing should be done in-between your brows, or else they will end up looking too far apart (and frankly slightly strange!). Instead, aim to pluck stray hairs and nothing more.

Next, to help locate the end of your eyebrows, align your tweezers with the outer corner of your eyes and your eyebrows should ideally end where the tweezers meet your brow bone. But don’t worry if that’s not the case – remember that everyone’s eyebrows are different and not all will extend to the outer corner of the eye and some will reach out past this point. Similar to grooming the start of your brows, you want to steer clear of over plucking and aim to just remove any stray hairs.

Definition is key when it comes to the arch.

For this part, you might find that a white eyeliner pencil comes in handy! Use the pencil to draw a line tracing the bottom of your eyebrow. Aim to follow the natural arch of your eyebrow rather than create a new one as the natural shape of your brows are likely to suit your face shape the most. Once the line has been drawn with the pencil, remove any of the stray hairs that fall below it by tweezing.

Give your brows a helping hand.

So now we’ve perfected and enhanced the natural shape of your brows, it’s time we gave them a helping hand to look their very best. Now, if you’re a natural girl at heart like me, a little brow gel will be just the ticket as it will help keep brows sculpted all day long without the need for pencils or eyeshadows etc. If there are naturally a few gaps in your eyebrows due to sparse hair, or if you want a more dramatic look, then this is when the handy powders, coloured gels and of course, good old brow pencils come in.

If you decide to use a pencil, or the like, try to keep it as natural as possible when filling in your brows. It’s best to start at the arches and gently fill them in using strokes which follow the natural growth of your hair and then, follow your arches to fill in the end of your eyebrows. For the end of your eyebrows, longer strokes are best, but try to not go too far past the ends.

And, last but not least – let’s not forget about the starting point of your eyebrows. Use smaller strokes as this is the area where you should be filling in your brows the least. Avoid any over-filling by mimicking your existing direction of hair growth, as recommended earlier in this post. And voila, move over Cara, there’s a new girl in town!
