    I always enjoy featuring bloggers on my blog and it has been a while since I've done a guest post. Today I have Louisa Rose from Body Health Love sharing some of her post holiday beauty regime tips.

    Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, but all that socialising means extra food, drinks and parties, which can take its toll on your body. Help kick your beauty regime back into shape to recover from all your holiday festivities.

    Damaged Hair S.O.S
    Summer holidays mean spending your days soaking up the sun, cooling off in the pool or swimming in the sea. This is a great way relax and have fun, but not so great for your hair. The effects of chlorine, salt water, sun and wind can dry out your strands and make it difficult for your hair to retain its moisture.

    You’re probably also shampooing more often to get rid of all these summery elements, which means you could be stripping your scalp’s natural oils needed to maintain healthy hair and skin.

    Once you go back to your normal hair wash routine, try using a clarifying shampoo once a week to get rid of any buildup and stubborn product, and always rinse thoroughly to make sure your hair is squeaky clean. The cooler you can manage the water, the easier it is for your hair to stay hydrated.

    To give your hair a moisture boost, try using a deep conditioner such as It’s a 10 to infuse it with some of the nourishment it’s lost over the holidays. Once a week should be enough to restore dry, brittle hair which has become difficult to manage.

    Feeling Puffy?
    If you wake up looking much puffier than usual, your body could be retaining more water due to alcoholic drinks and salty food. Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, or decaffeinated, non-sugary drinks like peppermint tea.

    If your eyes feel tired and swollen, you can try lying back and placing a cool eye mask over them for about 10 minutes. If you’re recovering from a big night out, you can place some chilled soaked cotton balls over your eyes to reduce swelling.

    Put Your Feet Up
    Flip flops and sandals can feel lovely and free, but tend to expose your feet more to the elements, and don’t protect them as much from pounding on hard pavements.

    It’s easy to get cracked skin around your heels, which can be painful and unsightly. Try using a gentle foot file to exfoliate your skin when you’re in the shower, and remember to moisturise your feet as well other parts of your body.

    Replenish Dry Skin
    It’s summer, so you sweat more, swim more, and shower more to rinse away all the grime, chlorine and suntan lotion. But this can make your skin suffer, as healthy bacteria and natural oils that keep it in good condition can also get washed away.

    When your skin lacks moisture it can feel tight and dry. As the skin on your face is extra sensitive, you can replenish moisture with a face mask that has gentle exfoliation features. Try this three times a week to really give your skin a hydration boost and regain a healthy glow.

    To help your body recover, try to shower in lukewarm water to avoid further drying out your skin, and use an antioxidant like 100% Pure Honey & Almond Body Cream instead of your usual moisturiser.
