Who wants to party?

Who wants to party? It won’t be long before the party season is upon us, so the earlier you get started to get your skin ready for those amazing outfits, the better. Autumn is the time of the year you are most likely to suffer from seasonal skin sensitivities, so you...

Do you get confused when choosing a moisturiser?

It must have been so much easier when it seemed the only choice of moisturiser was the tub of cold cream which always seemed to sit on my mother’s and grandmother’s bedside table. I don’t think there was any consideration for whether you had dry or oily skin but it...

Are you a bath or shower person?

For me, it depends on the time of day and I am definitely a fan of both, but of course, it also depends on the amount of time you have and it has to fit in with your daily routine. When you wake up in the morning there is nothing better than an invigorating shower to...

Deodorant or anti-perspirant?

It always makes me smile... ...because as a nation we seem to moan constantly about the British weather. I think we’ve all been guilty of this from time to time? But I’m sure you’ll agree that the last few weeks have been very testing and, I for one, have certainly...

Mellow Skincare is now on the festive countdown!

I hate to say it because I know everyone goes into panic if you start receiving emails about the dreaded “C“ word, especially when it’s only October! Because Mellow products are all handmade from scratch, we have to make a start really early otherwise there would be...

Mature skin: whether we like it or not!

Whether we like it or not, mature skin is something we are all going to have one day. Who is guilty of saying, “If only I knew how to really look after my skin when I was younger, I wouldn’t have these wrinkles now“? Many of us think that, but ageing is a normal part...

“Is your back letting you down?”

Is Your Back Letting You Down? Most of us look forward all year to our Summer holidays,especially if we are going to sunnier climes. We’ve tended to our feet in preparation for the sandals. We’ve buffed, waxed and smoothed our legs and arms ready for the sun…but how many of us include our back in the daily routine? Think about it – it’s been covered up most of the year so it definitely deserves all the year round attention.

Blitz that make-up bag and stay healthy

I don’t know about you but I love decluttering. I spend months thinking about it and can’t ever make up my mind what should go and what should stay but once I get started there is no holding back! The problem is making that start without emotion. The dilemma then...

The benefits of essential oils

“You don’t have to be an aromatherapist to appreciate the benefits of essential oils” As I’ve probably mentioned before, my past career was in nursing and I remember when I first went to Nursing School all those years ago, we learned about Hippocrates, the father of...

Get Summer ready feet the easy way!

Step out in style this Summer... I love this time of the year. We all want to look forward to the summer and get out those lighter clothes and sandals after covering up for so long during the autumn and winter months. We don’t think twice about showering , styling our...

Why should we celebrate Mother’s Day?

It seems like almost every month there is another hallmark occasion that needs to be recognised with cards, flowers, gifts and good cheer: Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Easter and so on. The florists and chocolatiers are certainly happy on these occasions and I have...

What’s Mellow Skincare all about?

Why Mellow, and what's it all about? The New Year is always the time I re-evaluate my business and think of fresh ideas and products which I hope will interest my customers. It’s also a good time to remind myself why I actually created Mellow because I’m assuming...
