2nd January 2014
The New Year is all about making resolutions, so why not promise to pay more attention to your beauty regime for 2014. We asked Harvey Nichols what promises we should be making.
I PROMISE THAT I WILL … EXFOLIATE: Going from bitter cold winds into centrally-heated homes can dry out your skin very quickly, so a quick exfoliation helps to not only remove dead cells but also allow new ones to appear.
We love: NARS double refining exfoliator, £24.
I PROMISE THAT I WILL … MOISTURISE: Ploughing hydration back into your skin is essential, especially at this time of the year. As well as making sure you drink copious amounts of water, look for products that offer plenty of fluid as well.
We love: Crème de la Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream, £105 (30ml).
I PROMISE THAT I WILL … FIGHT THE WRINKLES: As the cold weather leaves our skin more dried out, it’s easy to spot wrinkles and fine lines …. ones that no amount of make-up can combat. Look out for innovative anti-ageing formulas that reduce the appearance of wrinkles while smoothing and plumping skin.
We love: Rodial Dragon’s Blood Scultping Gel, £75.
I PROMISE THAT I WILL … KEEP MY NAILS LOOKING UBER GLAM: Hiding your feet and hands away in winter warmers for the last couple of months is no excuse to let your beauty regime slip. Ensure your nails and skin are treated daily to prevent dryness and keep them looking their best with regular coats of varnish.
We love: OPI nail varnish, £11.50.
I PROMISE THAT I WILL … PROTECT MY HAIR: Your crowning glory may well be looking a little lacklustre as you kick start the new year – signs that your skin isn’t the only victim of the cold weather. Look for natural products that will boost your barnet, rejuvenate brittle and damaged hair, and leave you with a silky smooth finish.
We love: Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Treatment, £30.
