Recently someone asked me over on Instagram what was my secret for soft, silky hair. Well, I cringe when I think of my natural hair… It used to be frizzy, with oily roots and dry ends and overall chemically damaged. I did some crazy stuff to my hair in my teenage years. Too much pink dye and the occasional bleaching, on top of daily blow-dries and hair straightening. Every hairdressers nightmare I suppose.
In the last years, I’ve come a long way when it comes to hair care. I still blow-dry my hair on a daily basis and straighten my fringe, but apart from that I try to take good care of my locks.
One of the things that made a huge difference was cutting down on the amount of chemicals that I put in my hair. Lush has definitely become my best friend in the hair department…
As the winter months go by it’s only normal to feel a little sluggish. After all, the lack of sunlight and the fact that we spend most time indoors hiding away from the cold, can leave us feeling somewhat depressed and longing for sunnier, warmer days. Don’t worry though, you’re not alone! The good thing is these feelings are only temporary, days are getting longer and it will be Spring in no time.
Meanwhile, there’s little changes you can do in your routine that can definitely go a long way when it comes to how you feel… Here’s 5 things I do that actually changed my day-to-day life for the better.
I’m pushing the big 3-0, I still have a few years to go but nonetheless I don’t want to regret not having done the best I could when the first wrinkles and age spots start to appear. That’s the reason why I recently adopted a more strict skincare regimen (thank you new year resolutions!).
Every night before going to sleep I remove my make-up, apply serum and a good night cream on my face without forgetting the delicate eye area. And in the morning, after taking a hot shower, I reapply a serum followed by the Hope In A Jar cream from Philosophy.
