The Omorovicza Team has pooled together their amazing tips for detoxing this January. We all think about doing it and indeed feel it is obligatory after the over-indulgent December festivities or if like me your Christmas parties start early, it might include November too!
This makes interesting reading particularly Margaret’s tip on eating earlier in the evening, such a sensible approach and one that I have adopted myself.

Understand the differences between oils and moisturisers
Personally I am always fascinated by the debate – oils or moisturisers. So was particularly interested in this blog by Omorovicza Cosmetics. My conclusion is use an oil at night time and a moisturiser during the day but this is just my personal choice. You have to have very dry skin to use an oil during the day, particularly if you are putting foundation over the top.
The Omorovicza new Miracle Facial Oil is an amazing product which I would certainly recommend. I have had the privilege of using this product over the last two months but it launches later this month online and in leading Department Stores – Liberty, Harrods, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges etc.
We’re always looking for ways to maintain healthier younger looking skin.
Skin cells are held together by an abundance of oils and as we age, the production of these oils decrease. Skin subsequently becomes dull and dehydrated. To maintain a healthy glow, it is essential to give these oils back, by restoring the lipid barrier to help retain the skin’s moisture. We’re often asked which products are better to moisturise your skin – cream or oils? The answer is quite simply both; creams and oils can be incorporated into anyone’s skincare routine. Oils protect the skin’s lipid barrier and ensures moisture doesn’t evaporate from your skin. A common misconception is that applying an oil to acne-prone/greasy skin will clog pores, cause breakouts or leave a greasy film. The truth however is that most natural oils are easily absorbed and noncomedogenic (they don’t clog pores). Creams on the other hand are designed to penetrate the epidermis, leaving skin softer and hydrated. They contain a number of beneficial ingredients which ensures skin is replenished and damaged skin cells are repaired. You can find Omorovicza Moisturisers here and the Miracle Facial Oil here. – See more at: http://www.omorovicza.com/uk/blog/oils-moisturisers#sthash.nkhToiYa.dpuf

I literally did buy this Mane ‘n Tail Hand Cream on the hoof. I was rushing through the Beauty Department in Liberty London and I saw this amazing section of ‘must-haves’. One off products that address a specific problem. Dry hands being one of mine.
The bright yellow and navy packaging caught my eye and the sight of a horse on the packaging piqued my interest. Well if it was used on their dry hard hooves then it should work miracles on my hands and nails! Let’s be quite clear that my hands are certainly not like hooves, they are neither cracked nor have calluses. However I wash them a number of times during the day and then I always moisturise with a good hand cream.
So after trying this for a month I can see that yes it is a good hand cream and it is surprisingly light and easily absorbed, which for me is always the key benefit (I can’t stand sticky hands) and the smell is quite pleasant. Would I swap it for my L’Occitane tried-and-tested-firm-favourite Shea Butter Hand Cream? Not on your life! Nor would I replace my newly discovered Phebo Fig Hand Cream, a present from my Brazilian friend.
Phebo Fig Hand Cream
L’Occitane Shea Butter
Definitely worth a try and the price is extremely reasonable, you get a lot for your money.
Available at Liberty RRP £8.00

Did you know that your feet may hold the key to health? It’s difficult to believe it, but pressing a particular spot on this part of your body can relieve your toothache, stop your back ache or even calm the itch of eczema.
Experts claim that a person’s feet are like the roots of a tree: the state of your feet influences the rest of your body.

Fitness League Festival – Royal Albert Hall.
Fitness League presents an exercise, movement and dance festival featuring classes, workshops and other activities centred around health and wellbeing throughout the Hall.
There will be masterclasses, the final of ‘Strictly Walking’, and a show in which Fitness League performers will demonstrate their energy, enthusiasm, skill and artistry. Throughout the day there will also be tours of the Royal Albert Hall, talks, workshops, pamper areas and music; plenty to keep everyone entertained!
Fitness League, a well-established nationwide exercise network, is a founder partner of the Exercise Movement and Dance Partnership. Its teachers throughout the UK deliver classes teaching Bagot Stack, designed to improve posture and well-being through central control (core stability) and rhythmic exercise to music, releasing the body’s potential for good health. This event will be a celebration of the 85th anniversary of the Fitness League.
Finally a post about the dinners, which I must admit have been truly scrumptious! They are varied – Italian, Indian, Vietnamese and Vegetarian, which you can add a mixed salad or vegetables to. They are measured portions and a little over 350 calories each and there was only one I wasn’t keen on and that we the Spaghetti Carbonara. You can choose the meals when you place your order, so you can add more of those you like and none of the ones that you didn’t.
I also persuaded a colleague to join me in the 28 day diet and she also concurs with the Spaghetti Carbonara but loved the curries in particular, Korma was our favourite.
So far the last month, I have eaten well, had a varied diet of different tastes from around the world, saved myself a whole lot of money in the process and lost half a stone to boot! Would I recommend….you bet!
