Every woman wants to know how gorgeous Girls
Aloud star and Supersoft Brand Ambassador
Kimberley Walsh looks so effortlessly beautiful
all the time and she was kind enough to
sit down with us to share some of her beauty
You don't have to spend a fortune to
look your best as Kimberley and the Girls
Aloud ladies prove when on tourů "The best budget beauty tip I've ever
been given was from the Girls Aloud tour
stylist Lisa Laudat. I love big bouffy hair,
but all that backcombing can wreck my hair
so every week or so, I need to do an intensive
treatment. Lisa showed us that you don't
need to buy anything expensive you can just
use your normal conditioner - my favourite
is Supersoft Yoghurt & Coconut as it's super
moisturising - and then cover your hair
with a plastic bag and leave for ten mins.
Lisa had all of the girls on tour sat in
our rooms with carrier bags on our heads!
It's totally not glamorous, but it's a great
cheap trick and really works. Just be sure
to only apply the conditioner to the mid-lengths
and ends, not to the roots."
With all that singing and dancing it's
no wonder Kimberley has an enviable figure,
but how does she stay looking so gorgeous
on the beach? "I still get the bikini-body fear before
I go on holiday, but after a couple of days,
I get over it. I tan quite easily and don't
tend to burn, but protecting your skin and
hair is so important. I slather on loads
of sun-cream and if I'm feeling a little
body conscious I'll wrap around a sarong.
I also sometimes use a bit of body shimmer,
which adds amazing definition to your body.
I've naturally got quite fair hair, so I
need to protect it, Supersoft Yoghurt &
Red Berries is fab as it contains UV filters
and smells divine. I'll take a bottle of
conditioner down to the pool with me and
apply regularly during the day to stop my
hair getting dry and stringy."
Girls aloud channel so many amazing hair
looks but Kimberley made it clear which
one her favourite is. "My hair icon has to be Bridget Bardot.
I love big hair - the bigger the better
- and she has it in sexy abundance! All
that big bouffy backcombing just looks fab
and so, so sexy - I definitely channelled
her old-school glamour puss look in The
Promise video. Supersoft's volumising Yoghurt
and Lime shampoo and conditioner are great
for adding lots of height and super strength."
Being in front of the cameras means that
Kimberley really values her time for relaxation. "When I'm not working I like to give
my skin and hair a chance to breathe and
try to keep as natural as possible. I'll
try not to wear make-up (although if I do
nip to the shops I'll always slick on some
lip-gloss) and like to thoroughly cleanse
and moisturise from head to toe. Supersoft's
BIO pomegranate shampoo and conditioner
are great as they don't contain any artificial
colours, silicone or paraffin oils so they
really cleanse my hair but also leave it
nourished. I love a long, hot bath and afterwards
I literally cover myself with loads of moisturiser
and just let it soak in - it's time consuming
but well worth it."
