My cold weather essentials…
With this time of year being so busy, I really have to make sure I take some time for myself. Too many evenings out, a diary full of festive catch-ups and celebratory dinners means eventually the late nights take their toll! I try to schedule a night in here and there to decompress and do a little bit of pampering before having an early night.
Alongside trying to eat well, get a good sleep each night, and generally look after myself, I love to have an evening of self-care to really sort me out.
I run a bath filled with a luxurious bath oil, spend a bit of extra time on my skincare routine and pop on a face mask. Then, I spritz my bed with lavender-scented sleep spray, burn my favourite candle and read to fall asleep – it doesn’t sound like much, but I know it’ll always make me feel rested when life is a bit wild!
When it’s time to stock up on skincare and wellness bits, I always head to Liberty London. Their huge selection of skincare brands covers all my favourites, from Aesop to Omorovicza, and everything in between!
Here’s a little rundown of my most-loved beauty and wellness products to ensure I’m feeling my best throughout the forever frantic festive period.
This handful of pampering products are my saviours when my skin needs saving, which is regularly throughout winter!
Omorovicza Silver Skin Tonic: This is my secret weapon to calming skin when I’ve overdone it (cheeseboards, I’m looking at you!) – not only is it ideal for blemishes, it also takes down redness, soothes the skin and brightens the complexion too. I’ve been using this for a long time now and I really do swear by it’s calming properties!
Aesop Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque: Another product I’ve used for years and years is this blemish-busting mask from Aesop. It is just the ticket when my skin is going haywire, I tend to use it as an on-the-spot treatment for those pesky under the skin blemishes, dabbing a little on overnight to take down any inflammation. I do occasionally use it over my T-Zone as a mask when I really need it though, it’s the product I reach for most when my skin needs some serious TLC.
Susanne Kaufmann Oil Bath For The Senses: If I could pick one scent that truly makes me feel relaxed and pampered, it’s this Oil Bath For The Senses! The bath oil mixes with warm water to create the most heavenly scent, filling the bath with a milky essence that softens skin and really makes for the most luxurious bathing experience! I use this sparingly because I never like to be without it, I feel like once you discover this dreamy concoction, nothing else really compares.
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado: Now, I am a bit lax with the ol’ eye cream application but when I do make time to slick a little on my tired peepers, I reach for this oh so creamy eye treatment from Kiehl’s. It’s rich without being greasy, and works to pamper puffy eyes. I know this has a bit of a cult following, and I totally get it – I dab a little around my nose too, which is forever a bit dry and flaky.
REN & Now To Sleep Pillow Spray: Of course, what’s a night in without a good spritzing of pillow spray! I adore this REN offering because it combines frankincense, hops and lavender to balance sleep and ensure you get one snoozy slumber! I mist my pillows and bedding with it before I hop in and the scent instantly relaxes me! A must for busy minds.
