Summer holidays booked??? Here’s what to pack next to your sunscreen……

30 May

I’ve always thought that hot bottles were a great idea! You feel cold, heat up some water, put it in you bottle and voila! you instantly  feel warm! I thought, who ever came up with that is a genius…… and then I thought, well maybe not! why don’t cold water bottles exist?? I mean we don’t have too many options when we’re too warm, and the ones we currently have, never get the job done quite right!
Well let me tell you, that very thought escaped me ever so quickly, after having used one of the most refreshing summer products that are presently out there : thermal water
Thermal water is a miracle water which essentially soothes and refreshes your face with a single spray!  Now I haven’t gone crazy yet so this isn’t all  in my head, the reason why thermal water has the ability to do this is because it comes from the untouched waters (untouched by humans anyways) of the beautiful glaciers and lakes of France. Meaning it’s filled with essential minerals and nutrients that you would never find in still water, or better yet, tap water.
What better substance to put on your face than one that has been untouched by humans in a multi-mineral environment? 
 The debate between La Roche Posay thermal water and Avene thermal water will always be ongoing, as both French brands are absolutely amazing!  (leave it to the French to perfect something as simple as water!)  and believe it or not, but  both products are equally effective!
So why should you include this in your hand luggage?
One reason being that there is nothing worse than travelling while you’re too warm. You’re flushed, you feel like you’re sweating and you just want to shower really!  What can be worse than that? Well how about arriving  to your destination without freshening up at all!? that really sounds like a nightmare for me, one that could and should  be avoided with a travel size thermal spray.
It’s a simple solution! All you do is spray this directly on you’re face 2 to 3 times a day, especially when you start feeling warm. No rest room required, no mirror required, nada! After a few spritz and you will instantly feel your  skin coming back to life! Also, the French have soooo much respect for their wine, so you could only imagine how much respect they have for something as natural and pure as this!
For me it all comes down to packaging, I have yet to see a travel size thermal spray by La Roche Posay, so if you’re ad bad as me with kilos, then I suggest you get the travel size Avene one which is just under 7euro! If you’re willing to give this miracle water some extra space in your bag, then why not go for La Roche Posay! Just remember you will be storing this in a fridge so not too sure how good a big bottle would look in one!
Have you tried any of the three in the picture above? If so, what do you make of it?

All-natural beauty product

If I spend any more time customizing my page, I  probably won’t ever get around to blogging at all!  So I decided to finally give that a rest and  get started!

For those of you who were kind enough to read my pages, I’m sure you have a bit of an idea as to what kind of topics I plan to include in my blog, so it should be no surprise to you that my post includes a picture my number one beauty product: Water.  Don’t look so baffled! It mightn’t be a topical cream that could easily be identified as a  ‘beauty product’, but it truly is an all-natural product that keeps your body well hydrated and prevents your skin cells from becoming dry and looking flaky.

The reason why I consider this as my number one beauty product is because every time I include more water in my diet, my skin clears up significantly.  Unfortunately for me, I happen to be one of the  unlucky ones in the family who has oily skin so extra maintenance is a must!! To be completely honest with you I find that the auld  ”8 glasses of water” actually does indeed work and at the end of the day, the health of your skin really does start with a healthy nutrition so if you could get your 8 glasses in every day, you wouldn’t be too far from consuming a healthy diet.

I’d imagine that 8 glasses of water a day would require a good bit of effort for some people, so I discovered that having a glass before and after every meal would probably be the easiest way to go about in doing so! Lets say you have 3 meals a day,  if you apply this theory you will have already gone through 6 glasses!  The other two can be taken if you feel guilty after having too many sweets or too much dessert like cheesecake  (I’m a recovering cheesecake addict!)

It really isn’t that difficult. Give it a try tomorrow and see how you get on, the first day is usually the hardest, but eventually you’ll get used to it! Think of it as your natural beauty source, after all it’s inexpensive, natural and with some ice cubes it can be very refreshing!
