| 5 Wimbledon Beauty Essentials|


We all know the the ladies of the Wimbledon Tennis Court work hard and play hard. We’ve put together a list of 5 beauty must-haves for ever tennis player to look just as glamorous whilst hitting the courts this summer.

  1. Even your lips are at risk of sun-damage whilst out on the courts all day. We recommend Carmex lip balm as it has SPF 15 which will keep your lips smooth and soft all day.

  2. Long hot summer days calls for ample skin protection. La Roche Posay have a wonderful Ultra-Light SPF 50 suncream that will keep your skin protected as you’re racing around the court.

| 6 beauty bedside table must-haves |


I like to keep my night time beauty essentials next to my bed because once I’ve got under my covers there’s no getting me out. I keep them stashed in an old Hermes box (so very fancy I know).

So first up is the the essential this works pillow spray. Who knows if it’s just a placebo effect but the smell is beautiful and I link it to bedtime now.

Next up is the Shavata Brow Strengthener. I have crap brows and I’m really aiming to grow them out a little bit more. Castor oil has been used for 100’s of years to help with hair growth and I love the applicator that Shavata has designed.

I’ve actually got pretty good lashes but anything that makes them a little longer I’m in to. Currently trying out skinpeptoxyl eyelash growth serum.

When choosing a face oil I like something light and pliable i can add to my normal moisturiser. This Waitrose one is a complete favourite and ridiculously bargain-ous.

I have a difficult relationships with eye cream and still sit on the fence as to whether they work or not. I stick to tried and tested brands and I really like the Estee Lauder Advenced Night Repair eye serum as it’s full of anti oxidants.

Finally I totally rate the Realine Beauty frown line patches. I tend to scrunch my face up when I sleep and these really help in reducing the movement between my brows at night. You just stick them on. Basic I know. Like a pauper’s Botox.
