About my beauty missions

I have always suffered from dry, sensitive skin with eczema. For years I just used my trusty old friend, E45, but then one day I woke up and spotted my first wrinkle- alarm bells went off! If I have 'dry skin,' I thought, then surely I must be even more succeptable than most to the aging process? Thus began my beauty mission. My quest to find the best skincare and anti-aging products out there for dry, sensitive skin...

Sorry I have not posted for so long, I have been so so busy with work and life at the moment! I have not given up on this blog!

So a quick update: the nails are doing well, this is the first time I've been able to grow my nails to nearly the ends of my fingers (stop laughing my long-nailed friends, that's really impressive for me!) without them bending like paper and chipping and breaking, I can only conclude that it is the high-strength vitamins I am taking, they have helped make my nails extra strong.

I have now stopped taking the aloe vera juice. I took it for about 4 months every morning and at first I really thought I noticed some health (and nail) benefits but it's so expensive and I started to think I could get the same effect from vitamins. So I have stopped the aloe and I don't see any great differences to be honest.

Instead (I always gotta try something new!) I am now taking a probiotic supplement 'Acidophilus' every morning. I have yet to see any differences in my health although I am loosing weight. I don't think my weight loss is due to these supplements though, it's due to the fact that I've upped my exercise and cut down on crap food (suprisingly!!) and it's damn hard work.
There's more info on probiotics on my health blog if you're interested.

Can probiotics make you fat?

PS. Don't worry they don't seem to have so far! =)

Nail growth update!


Look how my nails have grown! Sorry about the rubbish photo I just couldn't get it in focus but I think it shows how my nails have grown since last time. I think maybe the vitamins are the answer! =)
