Face Wipes are super convenient. You can hop into bed, run a wipe over your face and voila!

Make-up is gone. Right?

Well… not quite.

Makeup wipes are actually pretty bad for your skin. And when we say pretty bad, we mean terrible.

One of the main reasons for this is because they don’t actually take off all your make-up. Sure they give the impression of it, after all, you can see the orangey-black smudges of your foundation and eyeliner right there on the wipe! But they don’t work deep into the pores and stop the makeup from clogging them. Often because we’ve used a wipe we won’t then go and wash our faces with a gentle cleanser, and herein lies the problem.

It’s as good as us leaving a...

Massages are a great relaxation tool, and many of us will have had a massage at some point. But massages tend to be seen as ‘one-off treats’ and are rarely incorporated into most people’s health and wellbeing regimes.

Sure, we might go to the gym, or try and drink enough water, but what about giving our muscles some regular me-time, too?

What do massages do for my body?

Massages can provide you with a lot of health benefits. Not only do they improve blood circulation and lymphatic circulation, but they also calm the nervous system and relieve muscle pain. Massages can also be used to treat conditions such as arthritis, sciatica and muscle spasms.

You build muscle tension over time, so...

To wax or not to wax, that is the question. A less famous quote by Shakespeare, or a thought that many a woman has had over the course of her life?

The questions don't stop there, though. Often we wonder how often we should wax, what kind of wax is right for us, what the beautician is thinking when we're getting waxed...

Intimate waxing is indeed intimate, and it means there's often a lot of questions that we're too awkward, or even too afraid to ask.

So that's why we've done this post - we're answering the top 10 questions our clients have asked (or have wanted to ask and simply felt too awkward to do it).

1. Should I get a hot wax or a strip wax "down there"?

Amy says: I recommend hot...

It's widely acknowledged nowadays that, contrary to (some) men's beliefs, women don't beautify themselves for men. Sure, if we're going on a date we're likely to make sure we look nice, but nine times out of ten it's the other women in our lives that notice when we've had our nails done, or our hair trimmed, rather than the men in our lives. (And it's probably a good thing, too. According to the men of Reddit, the main thing men notice about a woman's nails is whether or not they're clean, with one bloke saying "as long as they aren't visibly diseased, natural nails are just fine." Cheers, random man of Reddit.)

But it's an interesting question and one that's sparked debate on b...

Spots are frustrating at any age, but can be particularly troublesome in tweens and teens. This is because their hormones are fluctuating, and these have a direct impact on the condition of their skin.

In today's post, we're going to break down the 5 most common skin problems your son or daughter might be experiencing, and how you can help them combat them:

1. Acne/Spots

Spots can be caused by bacteria as well by hormones. An excess of bacteria can be caused by the pH levels of your skin being imbalanced. If you wear make-up or if your child does, then spots can be caused by not properly cleansing your face and removing it thoroughly. We don't recommend face wipes to do this (more on t...
