Oh, the festive season! At no other time of the year is it so important to us that we look and feel our best despite being the busiest ever!
To ensuring those middle-aged chin whiskers are no more to taking time out to look after our skin with a divine enzyme facial, we ladies have special requirements during the festive season, but looking our best throughout Christmas and New Year requires more care than many realise.
From late November right through until the New Year, we put our bodies under intense strain with less sleep, poor diet and of course more alcohol.
All in the name of being ‘festive’.
Ensuring we drink lots of water, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, take our supplements (in our case, Totally Derma) and getting a good eight hours sleep is the bare minimum to looking great during our hot and long festive season.
If you are feeling sluggish then making a few dietary changes may help.
Focus on whole foods. Avoid processed foods, takeaways, sugar, alcohol and caffeine that may aggravate your gut.
Another important thing to remember is to stay hydrated. Aim to drink two litres of water daily.
Christmas party tips:
- Skin can become dehydrated in the summer months, so I always start by prepping the skin with a good vitamin C serum followed by a nice water based moisturiser to perfect the skin, I use DMKC foundation it creates a perfect glow.
- I like to do a little bit of contour using the the Garbo & Kelly illumination palette to enhance the cheekbones as well as sculpting the chin, nose and forehead. These are so easy to use as the formula is so blendable and that means you can be really precise with your placement of the product.
- For a party look a red lip will always be one of my go-tos, I love using DMKC Lipstick in Iconic Red which creates a perfect statement lip.
- With lips as the focus you don’t want to much on the eyes, just a little definition.
