After what has been an amazing summer, cold weather has swiftly hit the UK. Although Mother Nature still hasn’t quite made up her mind we know it is on its way as the days get shorter and darkness longer!
The colder temperatures usually have a negative effect on our skin – leaving it dry and chapped. Not to worry, I have put together a list of my favourite moisturisers to keep your skin soft and hydrated from top to toe.
Face – The Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre is a rich and creamy moisturiser that really is three products in one – a primer, moisturiser and make-up remover! This product nourishes and repairs dry skin leaving it plumped, smoothed and incredibly soft. You will notice your skin feels more radiant and revitalised as all those dry patches will be long gone!
Body – There’s only one body cream in my book and that’s the Eucerin Intensive Urea Treatment Lotion. This cream contains Urea, which is a moisturiser that naturally can be found in healthy skin. In many dry skins the natural Urea is lost so the Eucerin Treatment Lotion works as a replacement when the skin becomes dry. This cream leaves your body feeling smooth and supple and its fragrance and colourant free and dermatologically tested, which makes it suitable for children too!
Hands & nails – The very popular Hand and Nail treatment Cream from Clarins is an emollient-rich treatment that forms an invisible protective ‘glove’. The cream softens and comforts dry and irritated hands as well as strengthen nails and conditions your cuticles. It’s perfection!
Feet – Don’t forget your feet! I know they probably won’t be on display much during the winter season BUT taking care of them all year round will surely make them more beautiful when it counts. Burt’s Bees’ Coconut Foot Cream is to die for! The natural ingredients revive and rejuvenate even the driest feet and the rosemary and peppermint oils refresh tired feet. Leaves a beautiful coconut scent and your feet feeling softer than ever before!
Lips – Obviously an area close to might heart. I slather good old Vaseline on at night then gently buff with a towel in the morning. This keeps my lips smooth ready for my lipstick.
Do write in and tell me what you love using!

We’re sure you’ve spotted the extra burst of the lovely colour pink recently – in magazines, on shop shelves and even on TV – it’s officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month! You can’t have missed it BUT have you taken any action yet? And we don’t mean just donating your money…
Unfortunately, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women with 1 in 8 being diagnosed in their lifetime. Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. The damaged cells can invade surrounding tissue, but with early detection and treatment, most people continue a normal life. In recent years, death rates from breast cancer have declined as a result of screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options.
I LOVE this quote from Joan Collins given in an interview when asked …
Question – “What makes you look good in a photograph?”
Answer - ” ..Make sure the camera is a little bit higher than your eye level. And secondly, Smile! A smile will always make you look better”
I totally agree and I must say, you looking fabulous Joan!
