Pamper yourself

From time to time it is a good idea to get a manicure/pedicure, a new haircut, or your make-up done. There is no need to skip out on these beauty treats when you’re pregnant. You may be feeling cramped and bloated but treating yourself to a bit of ‘me time’ will help you stay focused and feeling beautiful.

Tips for looking after your body and skin as you age

Staying confident and feeling beautiful as you age is vital to your self esteem. With a number of ways you can maintain your body and skin it is all about knowing what works best for you.

Whether you plan to embrace your grey hair or cover it there are things you still need to do to look after your hair.

If you are dying your hair do something that is right for you and makes you feel comfortable. Just don’t forget that grey is also a statement look, should you choose to keep it!

 

The Mouth

The ultimate attention-getter and a key focal point of your face. Keep your lips full and hydrated by regularly applying a lipbalm. Chapped and cracked lips are easily solved so there are no excuses! If you love to wear lipstick then there’s no need to give this up! Just try out what colours work best for you and your skin tone.
