Life-Changing Skincare Products That Defy Winter (And Make You Smile)

There’s no doubt about it – winter wrecks the skin. Now, is the time we really need life-changing skincare products that defy the effects of UK weather. Maybe my face isn’t so bad that people mistake it for a Halloween mask.  But I can tell you, it hasn’t looked its best of late. In fact, just today my son likened my skin to that of an elderly person (worse day ever!).

Sadly, harsh elements outdoors, followed by similarly damaging elements indoors mean your skin doesn’t get a break. For me, (and probably many of you too) my complexion is mirroring a combo of cold weather effects, insomnia and a huge dollop of stress. It’s incredible how just a week of not bothering and too much Red Bull can make you look like total crap! But, thanks to my son’s wily observations and the following super-duper products, these life-changing skincare ingredients worked their magic. Now, my complexion is back to its beautiful and not old radiant self. Phew!

Should you be going through a similar scenario, these skincare products will quickly change the picture back to one with a smile!

1. Vitamin C Serum Fragrance-Free £43 (20ml), www.ecooking.com

We need ingredients we know will work and this serum ticks every box. Combining the clinically proven anti-aging components such as vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, the vegan-friendly serum delivers transformative results. Fine lines and hyperpigmentation are greatly reduced, and your skin receives some next-level protection. And thanks to the inclusion of glycerine and sodium PCA that offer massive moisture-retaining abilities, the transformation is complete!

2.Avant Harmonising Rose Quartz Revitalising and Firming Cream, £59.25, 50ml (Was £79), www.avant-skincare.com

This time of year, we need a great mask that means business. Should unsightly pores be an issue (let’s face it, when aren’t they?) this mask will go a long way to resolving the problem. However, it must be used religiously. Whilst the mask isn’t a magic wand, it does offer significant (but temporary) benefits.

The super creamy mask comes as a luxurious, thick texture loaded with those life-changing and weather-defying skincare ingredients. These include vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and rose. The rose provides a gentle (much-needed right now), yet effective exfoliation. The hyaluronic acid works on those lines, wrinkles and moisture absorption. Lastly, vitamin E supports the skin with super-power healing and protective abilities. Love, love, love!

3.Omorovicza Silver Skin Saviour, £69 (50ml), www.omorovocza.co.uk

transformative skincare products that defy winter and make you smile
L A Beauty

Omorovicza continues to be one of my all-time fave brands. This is the go-to weekly mask for those with age, blemish, stress and weather-related skin concerns. Silver is well-known for its immense antibacterial and healing qualities. Silver and niacinamide work in unison, overcoming all of the above annoyances with ease.

Niacinamide has been shown to be a great ingredient for tackling aging, breakouts, hydration, hyperpigmentation, whilst improving skin texture. The hero component (vitaminB3) even aids in the protection against free radical damage.

Also added to the specifically formulated mask are glycolic and salicylic acids. Together, they make light work of eradicating blemishes, returning your complexion to one of health and radiance.

The mask feels thick yet somehow velvety with a strong scent. Apply and leave on for about 10 minutes and then wash away. This treatment should only be used once per week. Those with sensitive skin should apply for 5 minutes. Increase the time accordingly if all goes well. The multi-tasking skin treatment is a true game-changer.

Would You Recognise These Signs Of Ovarian Cancer?

Ovarian cancer is a sneaky disease. Difficulty recognising the signs means that often it is undetected. According to the NHS, a troubling 90% of women are unaware of ovarian cancer symptoms. There are several tell-tale signs you should never ignore. If you have more than one of the following symptoms (and it doesn’t pass), go and get it checked out. It is better to be safe than sorry – and early detection has a 90% survival rate. Read on:

1. Persistent Bloating Can Indicate Ovarian Cancer

would you recognise these signs ofovarian cancer

Bloating is common and is often associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). However, should you have persistent bloating it may indicate a problem.

2. Stomach Pain Can Be a Sign

Credit: Giphy/Free Gifs/Homer

Okay, so there is no need to rush to the doctor with a stomachache. If, on the other hand, you regularly have stomach pain, and it is coupled with bloating and/or back pain, this may be a red flag.

3. Changes in Urination or Bowel Habits

Credit: Giphy

If you are recognising the need to wee more often or with urgency (and you haven’t just downed a litre of water) this could indicate a more sinister underlying issue. Another sign is a change in bowel habits (such as going more regularly or a lot less). Basically, if it is out of the ordinary and continued, get it checked

4. Extreme Tiredness May Be a Symptom

Would you recognise these signs of ovarian cancer

Do you feel like you’ve run a marathon even though your daily routine hasn’t changed? Should everything become a struggle and you feel utterly exhausted for no apparent reason, this is a sign something is definitely amiss. It could be down to nutrient deficiency or stress, but if it is persistent, go and see your GP.

5. Feeling Full

Do you feel full very quickly? Have you noticed you have lost your appetite and are losing weight without dieting? Again, although it could be stress, ovarian cancer can also present this way.

Should you recognise these signs, make a 2-week diary of your symptoms and then see your doctor. In their words – STAT!

These Foods Will Help To Shield You From Cancer

Did you know that certain foods are proven to thwart the onset of cancer?  Some can greatly support you in shielding from the disease. But right now, our minds are focused on COVID-19 and finances. As the pandemic spreads under the ever-watchful spotlight, other diseases are running riot. Whilst we are distracted, cancer is rampaging, with as much mayhem as a monkey in a banana factory.

People aren’t checking, or they are, and they aren’t asking a doctor or cannot get an appointment. Listen up, because now is the time we should all be thinking of ways to help ourselves and others. The following foods can help to shield you from cancer Make sure your situation doesn’t worsen – eat these superfoods:

1.Beans

However, you eat them (fresh or from the can) think of them as your new BFF. Loaded with Phyto-nutrients, these components provide great protection from acquiring most cancers. Furthermore, if you already have cancer, studies show the ingredient to slow its growth. Wow! Anyone for beans on toast?

2.Fruit and Veg

Okay, the deal is the more colour, the better it is for you. Dark green leafy vegetables like kale and spinach and fruits such as blueberries and strawberries contain key cancer-fighting nutrients. Try to eat a variety of fruit and vegetables as often as possible.

3. B Vitamins

The B vitamins (particularly folate) are well-known for their cancer-preventative properties. Studies have shown they are especially beneficial in shielding you from colon cancer. I know which one I would opt for – pass the scrambled eggs and Rice Krispies, please!

4.Tomatoes (Even Ketchup)

these foods help prevent cancer

This is one ingredient that has proven its star quality in our ongoing fight against cancer. Whether you eat fresh tomatoes or tinned ones, tomato puree or Ketchup, the component massively helps to protect you from the cruel ‘c; word.

5. Red Grapes

Red grapes or red wine should be on everyone’s shopping list. Containing the hugely powerful antioxidant resveratrol, it goes a long way to thwarting the environment for cancer to hatch (so to speak). Resveratrol is the latest buzz word amongst scientists. Whether it is used in skincare to prevent signs of aging, or nutritionally to fight disease and inflammation, this antioxidant has true super-hero powers.

6. Turmeric

Studies on the benefits of this spice are ongoing, but so far, the results have been so promising. In fact, one woman reported she had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. That was several years ago. She puts her recovery down to consuming turmeric one daily basis. Tests have shown the spice to thwart a variety of cancers from progressing, but more research is needed.

The Best Lip Stains That Actually Last!

Having tried countless lip stains (each one with as much enthusiasm as the last), I have concluded that sadly, not all lip tints are created equal. Sure, they look the part, but alas, some are just downright disappointing. Some are weak and uneven the moment they dry, and others dry a very different colour to what was expected – and then do NOT budge. Not forgetting the ones that have less staying power than the toy lipstick that came with my child’s doll set.  That said, all is not lost. There are a few lip stains that actually look gorgeous and will go the distance. Colours that won’t leave you resembling someone who has been clobbered in the mouth. Read on:

1.Victoria Beckham Bitten Lip Tint, £32, www.victoriabeckhambeauty.com

The by best lip stains that actually last

This is no ordinary lip tint, oh no. The multi-tasking formula contains hyaluronic acid and squalene to effectively smooth and plump up your pout, so you can pucker up with confidence. I love a matte finish and this lip tint creates a perfect natural-looking matte. Furthermore, unlike some of its competitors, it is not sticky and passes the test of time. Simply apply, look gorgeous, check mirror 3 hours later and smile! The gorgeous lip tint is available in 2 shades: Cherie (sheer pink rose) and Bisou (a rich nude berry). Bisou is my fave!

2.Benefit Bene tint Rose Tinted Lip And Cheek Tint, £21.65, www.feelunique.com

The Best Lip tints that actually last

Another fabulous lip tint is this one from Benefit. No matter what you do, it maintains its gorgeous sheer rose finish. However, I do have to say there is a way of applying the product. If you don’t do it correctly you may just be stuck with it for several hours. This stuff does NOT budge. Firstly, make sure the shade suits you. Apply lightly, wait for it to dry and then build it up if needed.

When I first tried this, I was in my car and in a rush. I slathered it on – discovered it was too bright for interview purposes – then to my horror could not remove it. Rubbing and smudging in the sheer panic caused me to look like I had applied my makeup wearing a blindfold. Now I’ve given you the visuals, take heed. This lip stain means business.

3.MAC Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stain, £19, www.maccosmetics.co.uk

MAC is the brand that just keeps on giving. If you love the glossy and high-pigment finish, this is the lip stain for you. It is super-lightweight, feels comfortable, glides on evenly and creates a signature glossy look for up to twelve hours. That’s twelve hours of a super-kissable irresistible pout. Game on. You can get this lip stain in 14 equally beautiful shades!
