We’ve all heard the song, right? Tequila . . . it makes me happy. Well if it doesn’t, it certainly should! If like me, you spend a lot of time and energy trying to get in shape for summer, you’ll probably not be thrilled about all calories lurking in our favourite summer drinks. I’m not suggesting for a minute that we all…

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…

PROBIOTIC BEAUTY

This glow, the one my friend referred to, was a subtle, dewy sheen; one that other friends and family had taken note of, too. This newfound glow – a…
