Outfit Post – Catching the Golden Sun

Hey Fashion and Style Police lovers! How are we? The weather has been quite chilly here, but some days are warmer than others. I took this photo on one of those warmer days. It was a beautiful morning with some sunshine. I knew I had to make the most of the golden sun, and I am glad I did. I love the photos we shot. How is the weather at your end?

Here, I am wearing a new dress. It was a gift I got some weeks ago and I have been looking forward to wearing it. I am glad I got the opportunity to style the dress without tights now that I still can. I doubt I would be able to do so in the new few weeks. It promises to be very cold here in Cheshire in the next few weeks. So I am getting my tights and warmer clothing geared up in time for the cold weather. How are you preparing for winter? Is your wardrobe ready?

The leather blazer has been in my wardrobe for a bit now. I like it so much. It finishes this outfit beautifully, giving it this effortlessly chic look. I love how it looks here.

I have had the Boots for some years and I always enjoy styling them. They tend to go with most of my autumn/winter ensembles, which is how I like my footwear and bags. That way my wardrobe remains a capsule wardrobe, the way I like it.

Give the Gift of Chocolates this Christmas

Hey shoppers! How is the Christmas shopping going? I am pretty much done now. I have a few bits I need to get this week, then I need to get them all wrapped and ready to go. If you are stuck on what to get the special people in your life this Christmas, then you may find this post very inspiring. You can give the gift of chocolates. I think chocolates are one of the safest gifts to give. Who doesn’t like a good box of chocolates?

I recently came across Vanilla Reindeer, and I fell in love with the amazing brand. The colourful website and products ticked all the right boxes for me.

Struggling with Stretch Marks? 5 Organic Tips to Beat Stretch Marks

 

Let’s be honest… unless you’re going to commit to never ever having a lick of something sweet, and commit to working out for hours a day, you’re likely going to notice a stretch mark (or few) appear at some point in your life.

Despite a common misconception, pregnant women aren’t the only ones that deal with stretch marks, and chances are since you’re reading this article right now, you’re one of those people.

Fear not, the stretch-mark-struggle does not have to be real, and there are certainly ways you can manage, if not beat them!

But before we get into those many ways you can overcome them, let’s talk about what causes stretch marks!

What causes stretch marks to appear?

Stretch marks most commonly appear on the body in areas where the skin is the subjected to stretching; such as the stomach, upper arms, and upper thigh areas.

They appear due to a few different reasons:

  • Drastic weight gain/loss
  • Stress
  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal changes
  • Water intake

As your skin stretches, your collagen, which acts as a “glue” holding your skin together, starts weaken. As the collagen weakens, your skin forms lines beneath the top layer which start out purple, pink, or red. Over time, these lines may turn a silver-white color.

 

5 Organic Ways To Beat Stretch Marks

 

Stimulate collagen production

As you age, your body’s ability to produce collagen naturally decreases. In order to improve your skin’s elasticity, and boost hydration, it’s important to supplement with collagen in your daily diet. Consuming collagen also provides you with the added benefit of helping to fade stretch marks from the insight out, while preventing any new ones from occurring.

 

Amp up your vitamin C

Vitamin C and hydrolyzed collagen are like peas in a pod. They work together to promote collagen formation, so it makes perfect sense then to help boost your body’s natural response to beating stretch marks to make sure you’re adding plenty of Vitamin C rich foods to your diet, and pair your internal collagen intake with a topical Vitamin C.  

Eat your vitamins

It’s not just Vitamin C that help you beat stretch marks. Zinc and Vitamin A also play important parts in helping strengthen the skin and stimulate new cell formation. You can either supplement with Zinc or start eating more foods like nuts, oysters, and chicken. Vitamin A is also quite easy to obtain through foods like butternut squash, sweet potato, and carrots.

Ditch drugstore creams

It may be tempting to reach for drugstore stretch mark creams, but all they do is mask the underlying issue. Instead, choose organic bodycare filled with skin loving ingredients that support your skin’s elasticity like these great options:

 

Encourage blood flow with exfoliation

Stimulating your body with regular, gentle exfoliation helps to improve blood flow and fat, which work together to lighten stretch marks over time. You can exfoliate a few different ways:
