How to get through the Christmas period
Start a winter skincare ritual
We’re going to let you in on a secret, you don’t need 100s of skincare products. Go back to skincare basics with a consistent twice-daily routine of three steps: cleanse, tone and moisturise. It is the cornerstone of healthy-looking skin in every season.
Step 1: Cleanse
Remove dirt, oil, SPF and make up with the cleanser that’s right for your skin. Home from a Christmas party and wondering if you can get away with taking your make up off in the morning? We don’t recommend it. Sleeping in your make up can lead to multiple skin concerns, we’re talking clogged pores, breakouts, dryness…
Step 2: Tone
Refresh, soothe and hydrate skin post-cleanse. Our Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic is the unsung hero of your daily routine. The hydrating formula replenishes and brightens the appearance of skin making it the perfect companion for party-season.
Step 3: Moisturise
Cold weather and central heating can zap your skin of essential moisture. Finish your 3-step routine with a moisturiser suited to your skin type to nourish, hydrate and reveal a healthy-looking complexion.
Personalise your three-step routine with our routine builder with your choice of moisturiser, plus enjoy a 4th product at half price. Or gift yourself our Smooth & Nourished Skin Collection, inside you’ll find some of our best-loved essentials: your 3-step routine plus our Gentle Face Exfoliator wrapped up in our seasonal packaging.
An extra tip: don’t forget about the skin on your hands. Hand washing and low temperatures can leave hands dry, uncomfortable and feeling tight. Take a moment to treat your hands with Hydrate & Perfect Handcare Gift, a 2-piece set to lavish hardworking hands and leave them feeling soft and smooth. Fragranced with a captivating blend of warm cedarwood and rich, woody frankincense, this cream leaves hands beautifully hydrated and delicately scented.
Exfoliate regularly, hydrate often
Exfoliation and hydration are essential for glowing skin. Exfoliation gently removes dull, dead skin cells on the surface of skin to reveal the healthy, radiant skin underneath. Want an easy way to exfoliate? Do it while you cleanse! Our Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser is always used with our gently exfoliating pure cotton cloths to lift away dead skin cells. Pick up our Cleanse & Polish™ Daily Skin Ritual and get our award-winning cleanser with cotton cloths, plus a stylish hook to hang your cloths on, just choose either our original scent or special edition warm cedarwood & frankincense fragrance.
Prioritise your sleep
We all know that lack of sleep can play havoc with our skin, which is why getting our 8 hours – or as close to that amount as we can – should be a priority. Try an evening routine to help you switch off by minimising screen time, taking a bath and reading a book before you head off to bed. The calming scents in our Winter Revival Skincare Ritual set help diffuse the day’s stresses so you can drift off.
Don’t forget about your eyes
Our eyes are often one of the first areas to show signs of fatigue – hello post-party puffiness. We’re never without our Eyebright™ Soothing Eye Lotion to gently cleanse and revitalise tired-looking eyes. For an extra indulgent treat, our Nourish & Smooth Superskin™ Gift contains Superskin™ Eye Cream to brighten the appearance of dark circles whilst lifting and firming.
During December it can be all too easy to forgo your regular exercise routine with the intention of picking it up again in the new year. Moving your body is a great way to release endorphins and fight stress – the trigger for all sorts of skin concerns. Our secret to motivation? Rewarding ourselves with an indulgent shower ritual afterwards. In our Glowing Daily Shower Ritual set you’ll find an indulgent bodycare routine to awaken your senses and leave your skin with a long-lasting glow. It’s the perfect post-exercise treat.
Last, but not least… relax!
Noticing an increase in breakouts and sensitivity? Stress could be the culprit and the easiest way to combat it is relaxation – easier said than done we know. Try lighting a candle – Warm Cedarwood & Frankincense Botanical Candle with its warm and rich fragrance helps you feel grounded – taking a walk outside or doing 10 minutes of meditation. One of our favourite ways to de-stress is by taking a moment for our skin.
