TEQUILA MAKES ME HAPPY

  We’ve all heard the song, right? Tequila . . . it makes me happy. Well if it doesn’t, it certainly should!

LISA LOVES . . . AROMATHERAPY ASSOCIATES REVIVE BODY BRUSH

I’ve long preached the benefits of body brushing, and I absolutely love this one from Aromatherapy Associates (£25, available at aromatherapyassociates.com).

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…

Feel The Freeze

Cryotherapy. Sounds more like Superman’s weakness than a beauty treatment. But when my friend invited me along for a session, I obviously couldn’t refuse.
