For those of you who don't plan on stuffing your face with chocolate eggs this Easter Bank Holiday weekend (truly the worst time of year after Christmas to be on a diet), here's a bunch of non-fattening, fun suggestions for Easter gifts to indulge in - and a few sweet treats too.
A healthy lifestyle is reflected in your skin - so be positive, keep happy and aim to be more physically active. A sense of well-being goes a long way towards delaying the ageing process.
Just like skin, the condition of your hair is an outward sign of inside health. The cells that make up each strand of hair require a regular supply of key nutrients.
Whether they choose to embrace it or not, redheads will be called 'ginger' at some point in their lives (or lots of points in their lives, more likely). Copper, auburn, chestnut-red, golden, strawberry blonde; it doesn't matter. They all come under the same umbrella. You are a ginger. But you are also a redhead.
The removal of body hair is just another thing that women are told they should do to be attractive, which is clearly the sole purpose for our existence on this planet. The scary part is that it has become so ingrained in some of us that we do it automatically.
It is wonderful to see that life modelling can be turned into a way to enhance women's self esteem and thus be empowering. Do you feel inspired? Would you like to have a go?
What happens when, with every passing twenty-something (and dare I say it thirty-something) birthday, the battle just keeps on raging? According to NHS figures, one in five women between the age of 25 and 40 suffers from adult acne.
Flawless, healthy skin is something every women wants, which is why the average woman owns at least eight skincare products, according to Vaseline's research. To make sure the products you use are actually helping to improve your skin, you should turn to Mother Nature...
#DIETSDONTWORK. We have tried and tried them over and over, but every time we do it seems we end up with the same result. If you were to bang your head on the wall and the result was that it hurt, would you do it again? Most likely not. So why put yourself through the emotional pain of this which has the same outcome?
Firstly, go through all of your Mum's beauty products and see what you can use. If your Mum is like mine she'll have products bought as gifts that she just never gets around to using- just make sure they're still in date. Do this before Mother's Day to allow time to buy anything you need.
How many of us get up in the morning look in the mirror and sigh? Skin not clear enough, body not trim enough, hair not silky smooth enough? How many of us try on clothes that don't fit our shape because they are made for skinny mannequin size?
Looking at the runway reports it's clear that liquid eyeliner is the lynchpin to many of the beauty looks on show. Mastering the perfect cat eye or winged out graphic liner is something that manages to elude many of us. As the famous meme states never ask a girl with winged liner why she's late!
I found that unlike at the Sanctuary where it's possible to pay for a day pass to enjoy the spa facilities, most of London's spas are accessible only when a treatment is purchased. The spas I visited were all in luxurious/boutique hotels that probably don't want to be overrun by noisy hen parties and the like.
I used to dread going to the hairdresser, chiefly because the stylist always touched my hair as if it was an envelope marked 'anthrax', rolled their eyes when I asked for 'more blonde' and could barely conceal their laughter when I produced pictures torn from magazines of Kate Bosworth (fair enough).
I asked my parent friends what they would most like for Mother's Day and the first answer was universally 'sleep', followed by the traditional flowers and chocolates. So why not give sleep related, or at least rest-themed Thank You gifts this Sunday?
If you're hairier than you think you should be, try using a cream with acid, or maybe destroy your follicles with a laser, or take a pill to balance your hormones so that other people can look at you without being repulsed - don't worry about the hysterical depression that comes with it - it's worth it!
