Every year around this time I realise that I have neglected my body all winter. It's all too easy to hide unshaved legs beneath jogging pants, cracked heels under socks, and skin that needs exfoliating under layers of clothes. My hands are cracked and my nails are a mess. My eyebrows are out of control.
And now the sun is shining and I'm aware that I will have to start exposing some of this flesh that has been well hidden all winter....and panic sets in when I realise I really only have a week or so to transform myself into a new woman!
I've found various tools which were part of two manicure sets, a dozen bottles of nail polish, only two of which were not sticky or solid, and several jars of hand and body lotion. I also have some natural algae facemask and exfoliating mitts left over from the hamam business. Oh and a couple of new razors which should deal nicely with the hairy legs.
So I am sitting here typing this with a towel wrapped around my head and my face is bright green. No..I'm not ill...it's the facemask. In 10 minutes time I will rinse it off, get under the shower, shave my legs and exfoliate my skin. Tomorrow I'll make a start on my hands and feet. I will continue this regime from now on until I am beautiful. OK...not so much beautiful but an improvement on my current state!
And talking of makeovers...Billy's had a haircut...not too short but it's quite lovely:
So...are you someone who regularly follows a beauty regime? Or do you lapse during winter like me?
And I welcome any tips you might have which might help to speed up the process.
