Be a happy natural :)

If like me, you like a bit of a bargain when it comes to body care products but equally want to pamper yourself with products that are full of good stuff for both you, your kids and the environment, then Happy Naturals is for youuuuu!

Their products smell super-lovely and ‘clean’ and their body scrub is brilliant. They’re full of good stuff and free of nasties like parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate and mineral oils – which means that whilst you won’t get the usual bubbles in your bath, you will get super softening and amazingly scented skin 🙂

And, their products are currently on offer at Sainsburys – happy, natural day!

DIY deeper hydration

I’m a constant slurper of super-weak decaf tea and good ol’ tap water throughout the day, so whilst my skin gets a good old hydration hit from the inside, and even though I slap on a good old skin hydrator twice a day (I’m a good girl), when I get to this time of the year (crawling out of my winter hibernation), my skin often feels in desperado need of an extra massive dunking in a deep pool of super-soothing and super-luxurious oil to up the ante … Of course, there are loooooads of amazing-sounding (and costing!) products out there, each claiming to give you skin to die for.

Sadly, for me, in order to afford these lust-after products, I’d need to eat beans on toast for the rest of the month, stop all kids’ after-school clubs … you get the picture.

There is of course, another way – the DIY way. Not normally my forte (at all) however, this little beauty – avocado oil – is THE do-it-yourself beauty treatment you must try.

Avocado oil is, quite simply, brilliant! It’s full of essential fats for plumping, softening and nourishing your skin and is great for dry, inflamed or eczema affected skin. And, you can find it on your supermarket shelf for less than a fiver (one bottle will last for AGES).

It’s easy to get your super-skin-soothing-hydration-hit. Simply apply a couple of drops of avocado oil to your cleansed face before beddy-byes time. It works brilliantly – add it to your weekly groceries shopping list right now!!
