Wake-up tired skin and eyes
Christmas and the festive period can leave skin looking tired and dry. Late nights, rich food and alcohol all contributes to make you feel sluggish, and it has the same effect on your skin.
Team this with the effects of freezing rain and dry central heating, and it is unsurprising skin starts to suffer and bags appear under your eyes.
But instead of reaching for greasy moisturisers, consider taking a natural approach to skincare first.
Sleep is always the best treatment for tired-looking eyes, but where that is not possible, there are other ways you can get back your sparkle.
Cool cucumber slices may seem clichéd but they really work. The high level of water in cucumber is a gentle way to rehydrate the area, and low temperatures will sooth puffy skin.
“They need to be thin and flexible so the flesh of the vegetable will come into contact with your skin. Lie down, close your eyes, and place the slices over closed eyelids. Relax for about ten minutes. This is not only a great beauty treatment, but it is a great way to unwind after a long day,” explained Brenna Stone for DailyGlow.com.
Rosehip Oil is well known for its anti-aging properties, but it is also ideal for rejuvenating tired-looking skin according to Candice Batista, Eco Expert on The Marilyn Denis Show.
“It has a high content of vitamin C and is prefect used under make-up because it helps protect the skin from the harsh winter weather,” she told the Huffington Post.
This oil, made from pressed rosehip seeds, will make skin feel soft and smooth without leaving a greasy residue. Add a few drops drops to your normal gentle moisturiser and apply to the face, neck and chest.
Winter dry hair
As well as the skin and eyes, cold weather, poor diet and central heating can dry out hair. This leaves it looking at its worst just when you want to look your best.
Argan oil is the perfect natural remedy to get your locks back on top form for all the festive frivolities.
Ms Batista explained that it is “rich in vitamin A, phenols and fatty acids” and a generous few drops will provide “deep hydration for your skin and hair”.
