It’s that time of year when everyone’s thoughts are turning to the upcoming celebrations and the festive season, which means family gatherings, work parties and a whole load of other events which require us to look our best. Most of us embellish our beauty routine at this time of year with a new product or two, but we thought we’d look at some of the products which are perfect companions to the party season and are best kept in your handbag!
Between going in and out of the hot and cold and all the ‘kissing under the mistletoe’ you’re bound to be doing, keeping your lips soft and supple is absolutely imperative! This lip-reviving cream from Elemis contains no petroleum products and is made from a base of white bees wax, which makes it ultra-nourishing without drying the lips at all. Added peppermint give your lips a cooling tingle.
Spending time in rooms with the central heating blasting (or even better; an open fire!) as well as the odd glass of champers can make your skin feel hot, dry and a bit too tight. This handbag-sized version of Dermalogica’s Antioxidant HydraMist has flash-firming properties and gives a blast of added moisture to dry and dehydrated skin – perfect for keeping you looking your best at your Christmas bash.
Nothing ruins a glam look quicker than untidy hands, and if you suffer from cracked, dry hands in the winter then this can be a real problem if you’re trying to look your best. This hand cream from Elemis will not only repair cracked skin, nourish dry hands and replenish lost moisture, but it also smells INCREDIBLE, adding to your overall festive scent!
Probably a product whih is better off on your bedside table than in your handbag, this powerful serum will help to erase the signs of fatigue after a hard night of festive celebrations. It combines smoothing and moisturising actions to eliminate fine lines and wrinklesm reduce puffiness and give you a rejeuvenated look around the eyes.
If you’re planning on staying out all night, you might want to remove your make up before bed (or before you and your mates do the walk of shame home in the morning!) but using some random soap and water combination will anihilate your skin’s delicate balance. Keep this travel sized bottle of Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel in your bag and your skin will thank you after your big night out!
