I'm on a mission. I am currently 2 stone overweight and have started a healthy eating regime. I'm going to start exercising too. I'm hoping that getting rid of the fat and sugar in my diet will help my hair and skin but is there anything else I can do to improve my condition? My hair is thinning and is limp and my skin is just dull and I have dark circles under my eyes.
You could steam your face every now and again over a saucepan of boiling water and a towel over your head - it feels lovely after. Exfoliate you skin, I always use a scrub on my face (like st ives) rub it hard after with a towel and then put moisuriser on straight away afterwards. Get out to the countryside or seaside when you can, fresh air is always good.
I agree with water - wonderful stuff! And I know it's really boring, and not always possible, but there really is no substitute for sleep. Sober sleep - to make it extra boring! Deffo exfoliating and a weekly face mask that suits your skin type. I use the No 7 moisturising one and I like it. Fruit and veg and not too much sugary stuff. And cutting down on booze!
Pootles - sorry for the hijack, but do you use Liz Earle every single day? I have been thinking about buying it but wasn't sure if it was more of a once-a-week job? I have sensitive combo skin, get very flaky/scaly on the T-zone. Thanks!
