Beauty Bug is 10!!
I can’t believe
that it’s been 10 years since I made the decision to start my own business, and
what an amazing journey it has been. Grab
yourself a cuppa and relax while you read all about how Beauty Bug came to be….
I had always
wanted to work in the Beauty industry and had particular interest in one day
running my own business. After finishing
a degree in Biology, I took a temping job working as an Admin Assistant for a
small charity based in London. After a
few weeks I was taken on full time and 11 years later was Finance & Office
How many of us actually feel as though we get enough sleep? Do you fall asleep easily or do you struggle
to fall asleep? Do you wake up in the middle of the night? Sleep problems affect up to 45% of the world’s
population (http://worldsleepday.org/usetoolkit/talking-points). Have you heard about “World Sleep Day”? I’m all for that!! ‘Join
the Sleep World, Preserve Your Rhythms to Enjoy Life,’ raising awareness of the
importance of circadian rhythms

Harness the detoxing
power of charcoal
There's nothing I love more at the weekend than a lovely soak in the bath and kindle time! I also love to give my skin a good weekly facial and apply a masque to work on my skin while I relax!
Depending on how my skin is looking and feeling I like to use a couple of different masques on my skin to make sure I am treating any skin problems.
My main skincare concerns are ageing (fine lines around my eyes and laughter lines), congestion (blackeads) on my nose and chin and dryness/dehydration on my cheeks.
Charcoalis the big beauty buzzword for 2017! It's no secret that activated charcoal is considered a powerhouse when it comes to adding a boost to your skincare regimen. So what is it and how does it benefit your skin?
Activated charcoal is carbon that has been treated to increase its absorbency. It can draw dirt and grime from deep within pores, clearing unwanted bacteria, chemicals, dirt and excess oils. The toxins stick to the activated charcoal like a magnet.
It has been proven to absorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which is why it's become such a popular ingredient in face masks, deep cleansers and detoxifying products.
Clean body, clean mind, clean skin!
I've been "Clean eating" on and off (mostly on) for over a year now and when I am in the "zone" I feel great! Clean eating and exercise (motivated by my lovely friend and fitness guru Teresa Wall) has been the only way that I have managed to lose weight, tone up and keep the weight off. Taking control of my diet and fitness has resulted in me feeling generally less stressed out and a much happier person!
Then the Summer holidays happened.
