What is 'The Beauty Hack'?

Fast Beauty.  No Fuss.  I come across a lot of great products as well as offers, tips, time savers so I created this place with the intention of sharing short, sharp posts.  A way to share things that I felt might overload or not fit in on my main blog (beauty, makeup, lifestyle etc) Computergirl's Musings, or my fashion blog

Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes so you never know what will crop up.
Christmas Kittens in hats.  Beautiful.

Beauty: (noun) the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, colour, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).

Hack: (verb) A shortcut, time saver or trick.  Makes life more efficient.

A place for tips, tricks, shortcuts, money savers, discounts, coupons and much more.

Dry lips tips (thanks to Liz Earle).

I'm not one for cutting and pasting press release, but this seemed good advice so I thought I would share.  Liz Earle (creator of the Liz Earle skincare product range, amongst other things..) has shared these tips for combating dry lips in winter.
Dry Lips No More!

  1. Drink plenty of water and up your intake of B vitamins as low levels can lead to dry, cracked skin.
  2. Resist the urge to lick your lips – this only makes them sorer.
  3.  Buff away dead skin cells away using a soft toothbrush to help reduce chapping.
  4. Read the labels! Not all lip balms are the same. Balms or sticks made with mineral oil or petroleum jelly don’t moisturise as such, they simply sit on the lips’ surface, and may even dry the lips out. Flavoured lip balms may taste nice but they might encourage you to lick your lips even more. More natural ingredients, such as plain plant oils and purified lanolin are by far the best choices for keeping lips soft and comfortable.
  5.  Very sensitive lips respond best to a fragrance-free, natural emollient. Most nipple creams, especially those that contain purified medical grade lanolin, can actually be the best balms for very sore lips.
  6.  You don’t have to forego the glamour! Lip gloss can help protect against the drying wintry elements, or try a tinted lip balm containing vitamin E, shea or cocoa butter.
