The beginning of this year has been tough, I spent the whole of February looking after everyone else and completely neglecting myself. This has resulted in weight gain, skin breakouts and the need to hit the anxiety meds I had managed to wean myself off. As March hit I decided enough was enough and feel the need to concentrate on myself for a while.
Thankfully I am working with some lovely companies right now and will be testing them all throughout this month to see just how much self care I can handle, from how to remove ear wax to permanent hair removal!
First up is the Eucerin Anti Age Starter Kit, complete with a trio of Hyaluron Filler favourites in a chic make up bag. There is day cream with SPF 15, Night Cream and a Hyaluron Filler concentrate which is to be used before both day and night cream. I have to admit even after just 4 days of using them my skin already feels smoother. RRP: £20 from Boots
I have always had issues with soft nails, they tend to reach a certain length and then just split or break. The same with my hair since having children, it just doesn’t seem to grow like it use to and I always have baby fluff around the front of my hairline that is caused by breakage, I do tend to fasten my hair back a lot and I think that is why it keeps breaking. These vitamins from Higher Nature nourish both the hair and nails from the inside out. Each supplement contains a blend of vitamin C (I’ve also loved these Vitamin C Serums!), MS, zinc and biotin. Fingers crossed at the end of 30 days I will have luscious locks and can finally give up the acrylic nails too! RRP: £20.25 from Higher Nature
I adore scented lotions etc, I really do feel well and truly pampered when I have used a good massage oil as the scents can be very evocative. You really don’t need anyone else to apply the oils either as long as you know how to do it right, or you could even just use them as body lotions, working it into the skin a little longer. These deliciously scented oils from Anma are on my list for this month, Toning, Detox and Tranquility sum up how the month ahead will be for me and I can only imaging come out of the other side relaxed. RRP £9.95 from Superdrug
I always feel better when I have a little colour and love nothing more than being out in the sun (yes I know!) however I am well aware of the dangers send to use self tan most of the year round. The world very first SPF50 Tan Cream! Most self tan bronzers develop over hours meaning that you don’t find streaks etc until its too late, this bronzer is instant so I am looking forward to having even coverage straight away! RRP: £44.95 from Tan Cream
