There were many entrants but unfortunately there can only be one winner and that is Val Hexley. Many congratulations Val!

We all spend a great deal of time on our feet so it makes sense that we invest time in caring for our feet. You have to make them look and feel great because if you don’t, they become dry and unattractive. ...Feet have to be moisturized daily with an intensive product after bathing which involves firmly massaging the feet. Use a foot buffer on dry feet once or twice a week. If you excessively do this, it will cause the skin to dry out. Follow the next 3 steps to pamper your feet:-

1. Soak your feet for 5-15 minutes in warm water. Place a handful of Epsom Salts and bath salts in the water to soothe your feet.

2. Dry the feet and apply your favourite product to massage into your feet. I apply my own Citrus Delight Whipped Body Butter which softens, hydrates and moisturizes.

3. Using your thumbs, massage the product into the bottom of the foot in circular movements.

If you follow this regime, you will reap the benefits and have gorgeous looking feet.

Tips for Looking After Your Lips During The Winter Months

Posted on November 03, 2014 by Melanie Brown

 The winter months can play havoc on your lips leaving them chapped and painfully cracked. It is so important to protect your lips. Here are 6 tips you may find useful:-

1. Drink lots of water. This hydrates both your body and your lips.

2. Use a lip balm which contains shea butter, beeswax or cocoa butter. These ingredients have beautiful moisturizing qualities which leave the lips feeling soft and hydrated.

3. When you go out, use your scarf to cover your face. This means less exposure to the elements and your lips maintain their moisture.

4. Do not lick your lips when you are out and about as the wind takes away the moisture. Additionally the enzymes in your saliva can break down the protective barrier of the skin.

5. Use a humidifier. The air inside your homes can also be dry. A humidifier can introduce moisture back into the air.

6. Maintain a healthy diet and fitness regime. If you don’t have a strong immune system it could result in you having cold sores.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is one of my favourite Ingredients. It’s wonderfully moisturizing and has a natural u v protection, although low.
This beautiful butter contains a healthy mixture of vitamins and antioxidants including high levels of vitamin E, (which is said to be effective in the prevention of cell damage).

Shea butter is calming on the skin and is known to be good for eczema and minimizing the appearance of blemishes. It has restorative properties and is great for soothing chapped skin, windburn and the general repair qualities
Shea butter absorbs into the skin nourishing and hydrating it and thereby helping to prevent water loss.
