The party season is in full swing. We all tend to overdo it at this time of the year and this can have disastrous effects on our skin, so here are some beauty ideas that may come to your rescue.
The best base for any make up is lovely skin. The most important thing about skin is to keep it looking fresh, alive and bright in appearance. After that you can dress your skin up or down with makeup products, from natural through to a Hollywood glamour look. Look after your skin all year round by drinking plenty of water and not completely avoiding fat. Eating foods such as nuts, which have oil in them, will add vitamin E to your diet that is great for your skin. Lastly, treat your skin as a delicate canvas and always cleanse off your make up before going to bed.
The following are a selection of products that I would choose for myself. Alternatively, I would love to receive any of these as a gift.
My top beauty item is Clarin’s Beauty Flash Balm. I consider it a ’must have’ item in my make up bag for the party season. Despite the fact that it has been around for 30 years, it is a reliable cream that still works for me and gives radiance and skin glow that can take ten years off your face. This exceptional beauty booster immediately eliminates signs of fatigue. It promotes a radiant complexion and long-lasting, incredibly luminous makeup. The ideal treatment before a busy day or an evening out. Beauty Flash Balm brightens, tightens, smoothes and revives every complexion, in an instant. £29.00
Another fabulous find is Cailyn Cosmetics ‘O! Wow Brush’ make-up brush! Through its velvet-like bristles and densely packed ultra fine fibers, this amazing brush is made to ensure an airbrushed effect, with an immaculate streak-free touch. This brush features a dome, angular shaped surface that is beautifully crafted to blend foundation, powder, cream, moisturizer and primers seamlessly into your skin.
Compatible with any type of foundation, BB Cream, powder and blush. A great gift or stocking filler. £20
And last but by no means least the gorgeous Mauli Himalayan Healing Salts. Infused with 13 therapeutic oils, laced with powdered rose quartz to bring wellbeing, clarity and calm in an overly-stimulated world. Mauli’s multi-layered blend combines the unique vibrational energy of Himalayan pink salts (which contain 84 of the 92 trace minerals found in the body), infused with 13 exquisite therapeutic oils, laced with soothing powdered rose quartz crystals to bring a sense of wellbeing, clarity and calm in an overly stimulated world. Use these once or twice a week so mind and body can feel beautifully balanced. Place a handful of salts (approx 50g) into running water and immerse yourself for 15-20 minutes to allow the healing elements time to absorb. Leave the bath without rinsing, wrap yourself in a towel and drink plenty of water to rehydrate. Then just sit back and relax. £39
May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family, a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016.
