Show us Your Life….Beauty Tips

This week Kelly‘s SUYL topic is all about hair and beauty tips. Now those of you that know me in real life will be aware that I am not the girliest of girls, but I DO like to keep looking fresh and healthy, and as pretty as is possible (which often isn’t very pretty at all, what with eight-year-old boys, a crammed schedule, and general inepititude!).

My best tips:

1. What goes in is more important than what goes on. I fill my diet with loads of fresh vegetables and fruits, a little oil now and then, and gallons and gallons of water. I know that doing this keeps my skin as good as it can be. I have eczema, which would be so much worse if I didn’t eat right.

2. Recently I have finally found a skincare range that I love, AvĂ©ne. It’s very French and understated and non-fussy and it works brilliantly. Whether you have normal skin or something more temperamental like me, I recommend heartily.

3. Sanctuary and Philosophy bath and body products make me happy, and smell divine.

4. My hair was my pet hate for many years, until I finally gave in and just went with it. Now I love my curly mop – it may be deadly unfashionable, but it feels very me, frames my face, and is easy to keep neat and fairly cute.

5) Makeup – I need to go get some tips on!

    Not surprisingly I have no makeup tips. I just naturally bring the sexy I guess.
