Wouldn’t it be incredible if you could stop the ageing process? Actually it would be nothing short of a miracle!

So for now I’ll settle for trying to slow it down with facials, probes, lasers, lotions and potions - so long as no needles or knives are involved.

The world of Botox and fillers is not for me as quite frankly, the results, combined with no real understanding of the long term effects they might cause, scare the life out of me!

Join me on my quest to:

  1. Try and stop - or at least slow down - those pesky little lines in their tracks!
  2. Help tighten my skin as its elasticity or lack of, is starting to make itself known.
  3. Manage and/or adapt to the inevitable changes to our skin and bodies as we get older.

The next treatment on my quest is: Total Rest & Relaxation (Or in other words - recharging the batteries!)

Yes, I have to confess I am one of those people who never knows when to switch off when it comes to work; and being self-employed with no set hours, sometimes it feels like I am constantly working!

This leaves me feeling tired, run down, irritable and my mind feels totally cluttered with to-do lists and ideas 24/7. Not to mention the tired looking eyes with big bags and dark circles under them, the pale looking skin with spots and blemishes from stress, and in general, everything has lost its sparkle.

When this happens, I know it’s my body telling me I need a break; and for me that means getting away from it all - shutting off the computer, switching off the mobile phone, putting away the ideas book and jetting off somewhere warm where I can indulge in total relaxation, cocktails, delicious food, and quality time with my husband, while switching off my brain from work mode to relax mode. I also like to visit the spa to test a few of their treatments - if we can’t indulge ourselves on holiday or at Christmas time, when can we?!

The results from taking a break away itself will rival any facial or beauty treatment, however a long haul flight to Mauritius is not as accessible or convenient as a facial at your local beauty salon; but a break away from daily, stressful life to me is extremely important, near or far.

I came back relaxed, stress free and raring to go, eager to get my teeth stuck back in to work AND I did it with glowing skin which was blemish free and without dark circles or enormous bags under the eyes. My body and mind felt invigorated; AND best of all, I had my sparkle back!

So to summarise fellow Beauty Warriors - take some time out to recharge those run down batteries. It doesn’t have to be somewhere hot, exotic, far-flung or expensive; just somewhere you can not be disturbed, where you can just go to get that all important rest and relaxation and return looking and feeling fabulous.

Merry Christmas and see you in the new year with lots of exciting treatments and ideas on how to keep looking fresh-faced and fabulous!

Getting older may be compulsory. Growing up is entirely optional! No prizes for guessing which way I’m planning to age!
