Holiday Party Skin Prep

21st December 2016


Maybe you’ve got a festive family celebration planned, an office party or a dinner party with friends and you want to look your best. But it's the time of year when our skin tends to be most challenged as we are cramming in double the amount of work and probably double the amount of food than normal.

For skin to be happy and healthy you need to cleanse, tone and moisturize no matter how tired you are. However, if you have gotten into bed with your face still on, keep our Smart Cleanse Micellar Water on your bedside and you can sweep away make-up and impurities with minimum effort and without needing water.

We hate to admit it but it’s true that we are what we eat. There are so many tempting treats around that it’s easy to overindulge but they likely contain refined sugar, high fat and alcohol. If your diet does go off the rails we recommend introducing Superfood Facial Oil under your moisturizer at least once a day as it contains 9 superfood oils including Broccoli, Flax Seed and Daikon Radish that are power-packed with anti-oxidants and omegas to feed the skin and help plump and smooth. A very lightweight, non-greasy and easily absorbed oil, it will leave your skin balanced with a healthy, radiant glow. Or even add a drop to your foundation to give your skin maximum skin health.

If it's more the late nights and high stress levels that are making your skin misbehave, try using Cellular Recovery Bliss Capsules for a month. Start using them now and you will be able to avoid the toxic build-up that can occur which makes your skin act up. The skin’s reaction to stress and bad lifestyle choices is different for all of us, some will see an increase in oil and breakouts, some will see an increase in dryness or sensitivity or even that product does not seem to be absorbed into the skin. Continue with a second month to help support the skin if you’re planning to detox in January.

Our secret weapon for that perfect glow - which can even be applied the same night just before you apply your make-up - is a powerful rejuvenating mask. We love Exotic Fruit Rejuvenating Mask as it is ideal before special occasions to restore a glowing complexion or when skin is looking tired and dull. The smell of this mask is delicious as it’s rich in active extracts of Strawberry and Kiwi fruit. You may experience an active tingling sensation as the mask gently, but deeply, cleanses, rejuvenates and brightens the overall complexion, and the results are instant. Simply apply in a thick layer on a cleansed and toned skin and leave for 10 minutes before removing, and following with your serum, moisturizer, and party make-up.

Finally live every moment, laugh every day, and love beyond words and have a lovely holiday. Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2017!
