Oil. Such a dirty word, isn’t it? Conjuring up visions of oil slicks, greasy food, deep fat fryers and greasy t-zones – it’s no wonder we’re wary of slathering it on our faces. But oily fish, olive oil, nuts and seeds, and avocado – all foods that contain good fats and a high oil content – are known to work wonders for…

BE A GLOW HOE . . . WITH GABBY ALLEN

Gabby, which three beauty items could you not live without? I don’t go anywhere without a tub of Vaseline. There’s nothing worse than having dry lips! An eyebrow pencil. I’m so fair that unless my eyebrows are tinted, you can’t see them. And even when they’re tinted, they tend to fade really quickly. Fenty Beauty’s highlighter in Trophy Wife. I use it as a body shimmer…

KITCHEN CUPBOARD SKINCARE

As a beauty junkie, I love to splurge on products, but sometimes, there’s nothing more satisfying than utilising what’s already in the kitchen. Yes, that’s right, I’ll often raid the fridge and cupboards when I need a pick me up. With a wealth of so many natural ingredients lurking in our homes, I wanted to share some of my kitchen beauty tricks. First…

BE A GLOW HOE . . . WITH FRANKIE BRIDGE

Which three beauty items could you not live without? Estee Lauder Intensive Lip Repair Balm, Shu Uemura eyelash curlers and Redken 12 Texture Rough Paste. What’s your skincare regime, and does this differ from morning to night?  I’ve been struggling with sore breakouts for the past year, so my skincare regime is constantly changing in a bid to find the right products.

LISA LOVES . . . SUNKISSED SKIN WHILE I SLEEP

  Over the years, I’ve had my fair share of fake tan disasters – Oompa Loompa orange, streaky legs, stained hands – so these days I choose products carefully. I’m also adverse to that biscuity whiff most bronze from a bottle gives off. Apart from that, I look for an easy to apply, natural-looking glow in a formula that doesn’t end up all…

NICHOLA JOSS – BAG YOURSELF A BESPOKE SCULPTING FACIAL

  When I walk out of a treatment with Nichola Joss, I feel all the stress and tension has been lifted from my face – all of the muscles feel completely destressed.

Keratosis Pilaris – Explained

Back in the summer, I posted about a skin condition I’ve long been suffering from. I say suffering, it hasn’t been that bad, more of an annoyance that won’t go away. It started around age ten, with a few scattered bumps on my cheeks. Having always been skin obsessed, I couldn’t leave these alone. I wasn’t worried – they didn’t look like anything…

Wake Up to Face Wipes

I want to start a face wipe revolution. Because, while I totally get how handy these make-up removers can be, they’re also my number one skincare sin. Leaving convenience aside for a second, face wipes strip your skin of natural goodness. Your make-up might be gone, but so too is any moisture, leaving your complexion seriously lacking. And so, as someone who’s constantly…

On The Spot

If like me you have embraced Christmas in a big way, your skin may be suffering from the dirty but delicious excess of over indulging. Too much sugar in the shape of mince pies, chocolate, booze, more booze, sausage rolls, and no exercise whatsoever and we still have the biggest party night of the year to get through! My face is definitely not…
