Aria Beauty Curling Wand

Posted by Lucy Redford at 11:01 0 comments
On Saturday, as an early birthday present, Mum bought me an Aria Beauty Curling Wand! It was expensive but I love it and it should last me a lifetime! Simple to use, it curls your hair mega-quickly and the ceramic barrel creates smooth, silky ringlets. According to the very helpful sales assistant, you don't even have to use a heat-protecting spay/serum! Curls never stay in my hair for long as it's super-straight, but with this magical wand and a light spritz on hairspray they seemes to last for ages. Even once they'd fallen out a bit, they still looked great! The only problem is, the gloves a bit of pain; it makes sectioning your hair really tricky. All in all, this a fab product and I can't wait to use it again, which I can assure you, will be very soon indeed!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Review

Posted by Lucy Redford at 08:52 0 comments
I am crazy about Batiste and I honestly do not know what I'd do without the stuff! When my hair becomes greasy, I spritz on a genourous helping of this, give my hair a blast with the hair dryer and c'est fini! As my hair's almost ruler-straight and lacks bounce, this product adds loads of volume and texture, as well as eliminating grease. It comes in lots of different scents such as Cherry, Paisley, Tropical, Blush and oodles more! Lastly, I'd like to mention the cans. They're cute, quirky and always put a smile on my face.

Top Tips for Spot Free Skin

Posted by Lucy Redford at 10:14 0 comments
Some people have hundreds of zits, others have only a few. Unfortunately, spot are part of growing up and can often be unavoidable. On the other hand, there is a couple of things you can do to prevent outbreaks. Here are my top tips for blemish-free skin:

1. Take your make-up off every night. It's important to do this even if you're exhausted and really can't be bothered as make-up clogs up your pores, causing spots.

2. Eat healthily and keep junk for for a once-a-week treat. Although junk is fine once in a while, having it repeatedly is bad for your health and your skin.

3. Aim to drink at least one litre of water a day. Water hydrates your body and mind. It helps clear your skin too.

4. Exercise regularly. Exercising releases endorphins which make you feel good and boosts circulation, giving your skin a natural glow.

5. Get 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night. Catching the Zs in mega-important as sleep-deprived skin is prone to more blemishes.

6. Use a light, oil-free moisturiser. It's important to moisturise, but make sure that yours is light and suitable for young skin as a heavy one meant for older women is likely to bring you up in spots.

7. Avoid touching you face. By touching your face, you're just transferring bacteria from your fingertips to your skin.

8. Never ever squeeze a spot. Yes, it's hugely tempting, but the spot will definitely go away quicker if you just leave it be.

Hope these tips have helped! However, if none of the above has worked, I advice you to visit your GP, who may refer you onto a dermatologist.
