Rose Hip Oil.

I’ve been looking at the ingredient rose hip oil. For me, this oil conjures memories of childhood. It was one of those remedies my mother would spoon out regularly to ward off colds and other such ailments. I think it may have worked, as I was rarely sick. But can it be as useful for the immunity of the skin?

Okay, you expect this to happen. It happens every winter.The usual winter chill wreaks havoc with your sensitive, dry skin. A quick search around the internet and you find a few quick fix remedies to settle your skin down and get you through the arctic freeze. 
So, it’s time to take action!
You complain to anyone who’ll listen about how sensitive your skin feels. A thicker moisturiser is the answer to this problem. Right? Maybe.

Struggling to give up sugar?

I quit sugar

For the love of all things sweet.

Why quit sugar? Sometimes it’s hard to reconcile with the idea that something you love is nothing more than an addiction.
Why is it that those things we enjoy become addictive? Is it just that we lack self-control or when it comes to something as sweet and delicious as sugar it’s actually addictive? If you’re hooked on that candy jar on your desk, then you probably already know the answer. Right?

Ray of Light.


A little light relief.

Madonna recently posted an image on Instagram bathing her face in a comforting blue light.
I stared at the picture, daydreaming about what it would be like to have my very own blue light device. I imagined Madge strolling down to a purpose built wing of her home where all manner of equipment for beautification and anti-ageing would be at her fingertips.
I don’t know if this is true, but if I was Madonna and I had the financial means to do so, I would, without a moment of hesitation, have my very own blue light.
What was Madge doing?
