How was your January? Hope you’ve had a good start to the year and are looking forward to things ahead. We certainly are and here at Simply Be we’ve got some very exciting plans in the pipeline so keep your eyes and ears peeled!
But first things first, let’s look back and see what the month of January brought us, as we run through our highlights!
January may be done and dusted, but when it comes to cold, wet weather, we’re not out of the woods yet. With a less than favourable forecast for February (and beyond), we’ve got several more weeks of weather woes and that means battling on with our winter beauty bugbears. From chapped lips to lacklustre hair, the weather sure doesn’t go easy on us during winter. But don’t lock yourself away until spring; take a look at our top tips for staying gorgeous through these rough beauty conditions…
Dry, itchy skin
There’s nothing lovelier than hot shower when the mercury drops, right? Wrong! As tempting as it is to blast the boiler and step into a steaming tub, hot water actually strips your skin of its natural oil barrier; a barrier your body needs to trap in moisture.
Lower the temperature and resist the urge to soak for half an hour (no more than 15 minutes), then pat dry with a towel. Lock in the moisture with a milk-based cream, perfect for softening skin and warding off irritation. This Burt’s Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion will do the trick.
British Plus Size Fashion Weekend returns for a second year and is set to be bigger than before. It will be taking place at the iconic Vinopolis in London, on the 14th and 15th February and as one of the sponsors, the Simply Be team will be attending alongside other plus size retailers including beauty and style experts!

Channel your payday glee with our top treats from the Simply Be stash…
