How to get that youthful glow back

At times our skin can look a bit dull, dry and lacklustre particularly during the winter months and this can leave us with pale sallow looking complexions. However winter skin does not have to have you reaching for the heavy foundation make-up, simply follow the tips below for beautiful smooth plump skin that will practically glow with radiance.

How to avoid sore, chapped, winter lips

Winter and the cold windy conditions can play havoc with your skin, the wind, rain and differing temperatures can leave your skin dry, dehydrated and lack lustre. And the most commonly effected area? The lips. During the winter months the skin around the lips can become dry and chapped resulting in the skin actually splitting and bleeding. This condition not only looks less than desirable but can also be extremely sore! Avoiding this is by far the best course of action and the first place to start is during your morning teeth brushing.

Hair – to extend or not to extend that is the question

You only have to flick through any current fashion mag and you’ll see pages of beautiful models with long tousled locks, how do they get their hair like that, so long and healthy looking??  I like most women go to my hairdresser and say the line that I’m sure they are immune to ‘None of the length please’ and before you know it you leave with a bob!

However extensions do come...
