How to have soft, supple skin this Winter...


Every Winter I get dry, dehydrated skin. I don't look after it they way I should. Just like so many Mums who tend to put a lot of these things last...you know where I'm coming from, don't you?
But this year I decided to change that. Lots of things (like my weight loss journey) are on my to do am doing list. A better skincare/beauty regime is also there...high up on my list. So, over the next few weeks I want to share with you some of the products that have been "doing it" for me in the skin, hair and make-up departments. 
Now, you might think I'm a little shallow and vain (good for you), but I believe that these little things are what can make the difference for me, especially when I'm having one of those fat, ugly crappy days (don't tell me you haven't had one of those...and if you haven't, please feel free to share your secrets in the comments). 
When I buy products for me, I look at them as an "investment in myself". I want my kids to remember me as someone who tried to look after herself (in all areas of my life)...if I can't set an example for my kids, how the heck am I supposed to expect them to learn to do it?

OK...on to the good stuff.

I love the idea of skincare products containing 100% natural ingredients (they are far and few between), so when you find one that you love, grasp it with both hands and don't let go!! I also love to buy an Australian brand before other brands..
enter Black Chicken Remedies............ don't you just love the name??

Love Your Body Oil for Men and Women is a 100% natural, aromatherapy product made from a combination of twelve remedial oils. This silky smooth concoction is made from Avocado Oil, Rosehip Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E Oil and the essential oils of Sandalwood, Geranium Bourbon, Patchouli, Lavender, Carrot, Ylang Ylang and Nutmeg.
I've been using this daily, especially concentrating it on the decolletage as this is where I show the signs of ageing and dryness the most. 
Love Your Face Serum is a beautiful,  deep penetrating, anti aging oil that hydrates my skin and keeps it hydrated all day. I use it at night too and wake with really soft skin...just what I wanted. I love the fact that I'm using a 100% natural product that contains certified organic ingredients, no parabens, no petrochemicals and no artificial fragrances (it smells heavenly). So my skin is re hydrated in a chemical free way...love that.

I also love the story of Black Chicken.
It is said that Black Chicken is an ancient crone, renowned for her healing powers and ability to transform her appearance at will.
For centuries they came, with their problems and ailments, to sit at her feet. Only those with good hearts were admitted. Those who had forgotten how to trust sought her door in vain.
So the story goes…
They came for comfort, for salves, for oils and herbs, for creams and cures.
They told their stories and for each she had a little magic to spare.
Black Chicken knows, they said, one to another, and so their children learned and their children’s children.
Black Chicken knows.
Black Chicken is the stuff of legend, but there’s no myth in the remedies afforded by practical and specific application of 100% essential oils.

This Aussie brand is already famous all over the world, where it is sold in Selfridges in London and boutique stores worldwide...Hong Kong, Singapore, Amsterdam, Ireland & Canada.
In Australia, these beautiful products are available from Black Chicken's Website (click here). And especially for my readers and friends, when you make any purchase from their website and enter the special code threepickles, you will receive a FREE Love Your Body Polish valued at $24.95!!!

Wooo hooo...get on that shiz. xx

    Usually it's caused by the sincerness displayed in the post I browsed. And after this post "How to have soft, supple skin this Winter...". I was actually excited enough to post a thought ;) I do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or do some of the responses appear like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you list every one of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  19. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
