What your spots mean...

OH YES! This sounds like a lovely blog spot doesn't it, don't worry I am not about to tell you that you can save that visit to the fortuneteller because the latest growth on your face will tell you when you are going to get married. Buuut, they may tell you some other interesting bits and bobs.

Spots on the forehead: if you are getting spots here, then you are probably a bit stressed, maybe you have exams, maybe you have a date at the weekend who knows, unless you are going to get a fringe cut in, learn how to calm down!

Spots on your cheeks: this usually means you are eating bad bad foods, I bet you are regretting that Dominoes at 1 in the morning on Saturday night now aren't you?

Spots in between your brows: supposedly due to alcohol/smoking.

Spots on your chin: these critters pop up during your hormonal time of the month. Not too much you can really do about that, changing contraception has helped some though, so if it is really getting you down, see the Doc.

At the end of the day, spots are likely to come and go as they please, apart from that which I have already mentioned, a good nights sleep, skincare routine, balanced diet and exercise is all you can do, nature will have to take its course.

Using some tea tree may also help because of its antibacterial qualities.

The worst thing you can do, and I hold my hands up to this, is pick them. It just introduces more bacteria to a new open pore/wound. At least if you are female, you have that little friend that is concealer. My advice is turn the lights off and cover all mirrors...seriously.

Nail of the Month: Barry M's Indigo

Happy December everyone! I have changed the name of this post because I don't seem to have the time to do nail posts weekly, but I hope you still like them.

So, as its now December I am feeling very Christmassy and whilst I thought it was still too early to put the red glittery polishes on, I did try this concoction which has satisfied my desire for all things sparkly in this festive season.

The shade is Barry M's Indigo, or number 312. Barry M is available everywhere in the UK, but I know it is pretty difficult to get hold of in the US, which is a shame because they are pretty inexpensive and have great staying power. Over the top I have out on Urban Outfitters Dust which I love because of the different sized shimmers. This also acts as a great top coat, keeping everything in place for a good few days. Only downside is that means it is harder to get off then your usual polish.

What's your favourite festive polish/combination?
