So we're finally here... Christmas week! For me, it has to be one of the busiest weeks of the year. I'm trying to see all my friends and family before Christmas, going for a coffee and a catch up with people, working all the hours sent and also organising any last minute gifts too. It's busy... and I need to look after myself.
By the end of the year, the majority of us are pretty much burnt out and ready for a break, so just before the chaos commences, make sure you're looking and feeling and looking your best with the following products to keep you in tip top shape!
GET GLOSSY HAIR OVERNIGHT
I love to do a hair treatment once or twice a week with my Pom Pom Pomade. I tend to do it the night before I wash my hair in the morning so my hair looks super glossy and bouncy the next day. Simply brush your hair, massage a few pumps of oil into your hair and scalp and then tie it up (ideally in a silk scrunchie) or wrap in your silk hair turban and go to sleep.
In the morning, just wash and style your hair as normal. Perfect the night before your Christmas party to make your hair super glossy and shiny so you can sparkle!
MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW LIKE A CHRISTMAS BAUBLE
Exfoliation is key at this time of year. As much as we don't want to overdo it, once or twice a week is perfect and my Exfoliating Face Mask does the trick. In just 5 minutes you can have smooth and glowy skin. This is the perfect canvas for makeup as it leaves your skin super soft and smooth. It's also great to do after a party to remove any last bits of makeup and hairspray that can easily cling to your skin.
DON'T FORGET TO PROTECT AND HYDRATE YOUR SKIN TOO
It's so cold and with all the heating, our skin's barrier can easily become impaired. I never recommend any harsh treatments such as microdermabrasion or dermaplaning as they can actually strip the skin's natural barrier and leave it super sensitive and prone to dryness, redness and breakouts.
Keep your barrier intact by using this amazing kit from Nimue. It contains the Pre & Post serum to hydrate and repair your skin's barrier, the SPF 40 to protect it from the UVA and UVB rays (unfortunately, UVA rays are the same all year round - even when it's raining! So make sure you're wearing your SPF daily!) and also the Element Barrier to protect your skin from those changes in weather and harsh environments (such as dog walks, hot and cold transitions and that cold snap!).

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE INSIDE OUT
We can't plan all these parties and be so run down that we are too tired or wiped out to attend them! Make sure you're looking after your inner beauty too.
I take my probiotics daily and also my multi vitamin supplements and an extra dose of Vitamin C for safe measure. (Did you know as humans we are the only mammal on the planet who can't make their own vitamin C? Therefore we have to ensure we get plenty in our diet as it depletes easily throughout the day).
