Today I woke up feeling shattered, missed my pilates class, and have a conference call in half an hour……How best to feel better? My first thought was talking with you ladies on Facebook and sharing my dilemma.
How many of us wake up body monitoring? bloated tummy tick, too much ice cream for too many months – tick, having ice-cream (the utterly delicious Dri Dri Gelato to be specific) every night for like 8 months, and I know this is not good for me. It’s time for a change: Can I give up sugar for even a week? and what are my alternatives?
On Thursday I bumped into Lorraine Pascale – the wonderful cook and fitness guru at This Morning and asked her if she could teach me to cook something sweet but good for me…. so hopefully you will see her on Facebook Live soon.
Before starting the sugar diet though, here is the list of all the random things I spoke about this morning.
Intensely hydrating, you rub it all in, let it absorb and just take the excess off. Using the roller really helps to wake up my skin and let the product absorb. Here is the roller I used: Stimuloval by Jeanne Piaubert.
SOLGAR Biotin 5000 for thinning hair
Topically applied hormones – for menopausal ladies:
Really good cell support, I use it below my neck.
Estrogen derivatives, I use it once a day on my face.
TEENAGER SKIN, FROM TOPSHOP
I love that if you have a teenager daughter, and you take them shopping to Topshop in their flag ship store on Oxford Circus or wanter across to &Other Stories flagship store on Regent Street they each stock a wonderfully well curated selection of skincare products for their teenage skin that actually work.
Comes in 2 shades. It mattifies, it’s good for oily skin and if you want a nice finish all over. You can also apply some and just use a bit of blusher on top.
I talked about Weleda’s products in my post on French Pharmacy.
MAKEUP FROM & OTHER STORIES
quite pricey, but simple design – comes in four very easy to work with shades.
Slightly Crème de la mere mint, let’s call it mid-range mint.
Meanwhile tippy toes up and down holding my tummy…
And then plié up and down…
Then hoola hoop round and round…
