New Podcast!! The truth about all those carbs and sugars... Tune in to Episode 54 (yes really!!) just gone live to listen to the brilliant Dale Pinnock, AKA @themedicinalchef, talking all things carb related... this is a really fascinating one packed with bio-chemistry and body dynamics as well as common sense. Good food prep for the party season ahead. Listen to the end for an amazing offer too... something I’m definitely going to be signing up to...
Have a wonderful weekend - do share what you’re up to? I’m planning on replaying some of my favourite podcast episodes while starting on my Christmas cards (well, addressing the envelopes anyway!). You’ll find the link to my podcast series in my main Instagram bio - as well as details of my favourite charity Christmas cards too 🌲😜❤️ LX

Skincare Tools that help my routine along nicely 🧖🏽♀️
⭐️My first tool is my @magnitonelondon facial brush I’ve done a more in-depth post a while back. I always find my fave feels cleaner and smoother after using and I get better results using this than just my hands
⭐️Now onto the @lizearlebeautyco cloth. I finished the polish ages ago, but still use this to remove cleansers sometimes, you just you warm water and wipe away, it’s also super helpful to wipe down your face after a clay mask
⭐️Next up the pink pot from @primark.beauty and this is used to help foam/bubble up your cleanser. I first saw this on AliExpress and really wanted one, you out some cleanser in the pot with some water and use the handle to create foam, it found it useful with products that are cream/gel based that don’t foam like regular soap, but it is gimmicky and a bit of fun
⭐️Cotton rounds I used to buy from all over the place but in an attempt to be more eco friendly and generate less waste I’ve converted. These are great for their purpose and still tried and tested
⭐️Next my @makeuperaser this is originally used to remove makeup from the skin with nothing but water, and for me this does work I’ve got super versions from both Primark and Sephora that work as well. I tend to use these now in place of cotton rounds as I can wash and reuse and also use them when I’m washing my Liz Earle cloths
⭐️My @realtechniques Eye massager came from my Prep Brush kit and this is my favourite it feels so cool on the under eyes and does relax the eyes. I use this with any eye products or to massage in excess product from a mask
⭐️Lastly my @primark.beauty Silicone Mask Brush, not exactly a brush but more a spatula and this I love to use it applying my masks to my face. This is so easy to clean off after compared to a conventional mask brush which has bristles
Day 15 of #skinemmies2018 was Mask🧖🏼♀️
I’ll be honest I have lots of them but don’t use them all that much. I tend to reach for them before I go to an event/night out or when my skin needs some help recovering. I must start to incorporate them more! Now that I work from home I try to slap one on a few times a week.
When baby comes I imagine I’ll need all the help I can get to improve the horror of my face. To think I might actually get to use a face mask with a newborn 🤣 am i deluded?
My favourite mask discovery of the year so far has been @origins Charcoal Honey🍯 This is silky, non sticky and dreamy. It is perfect for skins that feel a bit out of whack/get blemishes/congestion but don’t want the drying element you get from some clay masks. I can leave this on for around 20-30 mins and my skin feels super soft after. I find it helps heal any spots and does a good job at decongesting.
I will be buying a full size of this for sure. Plus the smell...think actual honey😍
Shoutout to @ctilburymakeup Goddess Face Mask as this is also a winner. Great to use before an event as it does the whole shebang.
Next on my list to try is the @sjoskin Happy Honey! Love a bit of honey in my masks👌🏻
Friday feet! Stepping into the weekend with these amazingly comfy @po_zu sneakers... which Baz finds especially fascinating 😂 I love this ethical shoe brand which @liviafirth put onto my radar a while back. Their strap-line is “shoes with a good sole” and if you check them out you’ll see why. This style is made from chrome-free leather and eco micro fibre as well as natural cork in the mattress-style sole. This brand even make vegan sneakers (who knew these were even a thing??) and are offering a staggering 40% off everything right now with the code BETHECHANGE. Love it.
This is not an ad, I genuinely admire this ethical brand which is now run by my friend, the talented eco-warrior @safia_minney 💚
Happy Fri-Yay!! LX 💃🏼
Tough day ahead in the office tasting mince pies for the LiveTwiceOrg carol concert on 5th December! Thinking we might go the open topped route this year with cranberries and nuts, but we'll have to try lots to make the final decision! #mincepies#cranberries#christmasiscoming#lizearle
Tonight’s skincare routine will be up on my stories. The ultimate fight against central heating and cold weather. My foundation was peeling away from my nose today and it’s easy to blame your make up rather than going skin deep 💪🏽#skincare#skincareroutine#alexsteinherr#primark#lizearle
Cleanse & Polish lovers – prepare yourselves. With our Cleanse & Polish Winter Radiance Trio you can delight your senses with 3 uniquely fragranced editions of our cleansing icon – one being our NEW Limited Edition! The perfect gift for any Cleanse & Polish devotee this Christmas 💙 #lizearle
Day 15: Mask
Unsurprisingly @lizearlebeautyco wins here for me. I think all three of their masks are fantastic- I only have two in my possession at the moment, so imagine the Deep Cleansing Mask next to my Intensive Nourishing and Brightening masks!
I only really ever want to mask to clear my skin, hydrate my skin, or instantly brighten, and for each of these needs, this brand has made a straight forward, does what it says on the tube product that works for me every time
Putting these amazing guys in the spotlight! The Ace Africa team from Tanzania and Kenya, who have supported and directly helped well over a million people in the most dire and desperate need, so many of them widows and orphans. As their Patron and supporter, I have visited @aceafrica projects many times and could not be more proud of their work as we celebrate the charity’s 15th birthday.
I love this organisation so much as it empowers and educates entire communities to enable them to build better lives for their families and for future generations. Tackling difficult issues of food poverty, malnutrition, FGM, childhood marriage, sanitary protection and so much more. It gives a hand-up, not just a hand-out, and we are also so grateful for the support of the team @comicrelief who have helped so much over the years.
You are all so life-enhancing and I am humbled by your dedication and commitment to helping fellow humanity.
On a lighter note - swipe right to see my incredible silver clutch bag and see if you can guess what it’s made of?! Answers on a postcard below...
Whenever anyone mentioned @qvc I thought of someone on the TV talking a million miles an hour selling fake jewels 😂 Thanks to @thefashion_lift I’ve recently discovered that my perception was completely outdated and it’s actually a gem of a website full of fantastic bargains like this @lizearlebeautyco 6 Piece Foundation Of Fabulous Skin Collection for only £49.92 which by my calculation below is worth £114.50 if you bought all the products separately from the Liz Earle Website 😯 .
