Top Tips For Gorgeous Nails

Summer holiday essentials

With the warmer weather comes jandals, shorts, skirts and unfortunately drier skin. My Summer essentials include Avene thermal water spray and a good lip balm to hydrate the skin.

The 5 in 1 anti-aging formula tones, exfoliates, hydrates, regenerates and repairs my skin, leaving it feeling smoother and more supple.  Looking after our skin also means protecting it from the sun. I love the Coola BB sun cream for it's matte finish and...
