’Tis the season of juggling festive fun. Make sure your skin looks flawless (rather than frazzled) for every occasion with our tried and tested tips.
ONE WEEK TO GO
With a fair few days to go, now’s the time to focus on improving your complexion’s moisture levels. When skin is well hydrated, not only will it look lovely and glowing, it will also act as the perfect canvas for your make-up. Foundations and powders stay perfectly in place on skin that is plump, soft and even, meaning no touch-ups required, come party night.
We recommend: smoothing our bestselling Super Serum into your skin before you apply our Advanced Hydration moisturiser (twice a day) and lowering your caffeine intake with green tea. Over the course of the week you’ll really notice your skin looking much better and you’ll be amazed at just how long your make-up stays flawless.
Don’t forget… To hydrate the skin on your body, too. Smooth our Seychelles Coconut Body Oil into skin after your evening shower, every night, for glowing results.
ONE SLEEP TO GO
It’s important to get a good night’s sleep before any upcoming event so you wake up to fresh, bright and luminous skin. When you sleep, your skin regenerates, so give it a helping hand by nourishing it with advanced skincare.
We recommend: Amplifying your evening regime by massaging our iconic Night Oil into cleansed skin. It’s packed with Amazonian oils and antioxidants and even won ‘Best Sleep Treatment’ at the 2017 Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards.
Don’t forget… If you’ve had a blow dry the night before your event, sleep on a silk pillowcase to keep it in tact.

A FEW HOURS TO GO
If all your good intentions went a little off-piste, don’t panic; it’s not too late to get gorgeously glowing skin. On the day of your event give yourself plenty of get-ready time and a DIY facial.
We recommend: Thoroughly cleansing your skin with our Super Balm, which removes impurities and deeply hydrates. Next, follow with Super Serum and Advanced Hydration, but smooth them into your skin by gliding your knuckles along your jawbone, from chin to ear. Then, massage your cheeks to increase the blood flow and plump-up your skin by using the pads of your thumbs to gently push up from your cheekbones. Start at the centre of your face next to your nose and work outwards. These simple movements will help firm and tone the jawline and cheekbones.
Don’t forget… Your eyes! If you’ve had a lack of sleep or long day at work, dotting Eye Revive around your eye socket (not on your eyelids) will brighten and banish tell-tale signs of fatigue, creating a moisturised base for a brightening concealer.
