Happy New Year…

Ok so I’m borderline (definitely) a little too late for a Happy New Year post but let’s roll with it.

I went to the gym on December 28th… I’d put on a 1lb over Christmas. Wonderful. Surprising but wonderful. I went to the gym on January 5th… 6 more lbs. Not so great. But as I mentioned before Christmas, life would be very boring if you didn’t let yourself indulge every now and again (plus cheese taste far too good to avoid).

I had a few occasions in January (I’m not one of those Dry January/let’s stay in and snuggle kind of gals)… we drank, we ate, but we danced too… I didn’t gain or lose any more lbs. The gym warned them off. But I was a little nervous about my upcoming trip to Dubai. I want to look glamourous… not bloaty. So I decided to do the Clean 9 again. Not only is it a great cleanse, with the added bonus of weight loss, but it really gives you a glow.

I’ll do another post when I have a little more time about my second experience of the Clean 9. But in summary I started 61 pounds down and finished 73 pounds down. I have more energy, my skin is glowing and having previewed a new shirt dress to the office yesterday my confidence has been boosted.

Did you know 73 pounds is the same as 44 bottles of wine? Well now you do… (I use ilostwhat.com for all comparisons – fabulous little site).

Pesky Toxins – Clear Skin

As you know, this October I’ve been completely sober, yes even whilst belting out the classics on the podium in Snobs. It’s been… interesting (follow up post to come once 1st November hits). The thing that really struck me was just how bad my skin got once I gave up alcohol – perhaps not something you’d expect whilst teetotal. Was it the toxins leaving my body? Maybe. I’ve never had immaculate skin at all, but I could usually work a little make-up magic and cover any break-outs, but this time it was different, my skin was sore, angry red and hard?!

I’d heard that Aloe Vera Gelly can be great for soothing breakouts, and clearing up unwelcome spots. It has antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring, it’s also a good moisturiser.

So I put it to the test (excuse the lack of make up and PJs ha all pictures taken just before bed or just after waking up) …

Day 1 (Wednesday 21st October) – Spots and red patches. My lips even look a bit weird, they blend in.

Day 5 (Sunday 25th October) Less sports for sure, still a little red tinge, particularly to cheeks area.

Day 8 (Wednesday 28th October) Spots have pretty much gone, still slightly red around nose and cheeks. My face actually matches my neck more or less in terms of complexion. Bonus.

Wish I’d took slightly better images (apologies). The results are fairly clear though I think? I’m pretty chuffed to be honest, feel much more confident – although a smidge worried about all the face paint I’ll be applying for Halloween this weekend. Fingers crossed my skin stays calm.
