You wouldn’t be alone in thinking England had been transformed into a tropical island this summer with temperatures soaring into the high 30’s! It’s hard to believe that only a few weeks later our fans are away, winter coats are out and you have to seriously decide if it could be acceptable to spend the whole day in a hot shower…
Not only does the climate change affect our skin and hair but our moods also suffer. Fear not – we have some top tips for pampering yourself to boost your mood and get you into the Autumn spirit.
It is scientifically proven that a hot bath can improve your mood by calming the nervous system, which reduces stress and anxiety. For ultimate relaxation we suggest spicing up your bath with bath pearls, a bath fizzer or even a soothing bath tea bag…yes, we did say bath tea bag! These replenish, hydrate and invigorate your skin with an infusion of Taiwanese tea, essential oils and consciously sourced ingredients. Pop on your favourite playlist, light a candle and voila! Total relaxation is yours.
Wake up your skin!
Cold weather is a real pest for stripping moisture out of your skin leaving it feeling dry and tender. Many people can also experience flaky, itchy patches which can make you feel miserable and body conscious! To combat this we recommend a full body exfoliator such as Bean Body/Bean Body For Men. These organic coffee body scrubs contain caffeine to stimulate blood flow and help reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins and psoriasis. Once you’ve washed off, finish by applying your favourite body moisturiser to lock in moisture and reveal silky smooth skin, and you’ll be a much happier you.
Sorry new hairstyle – who dis?
You don’t always need to take a trip to the hairdresser or barber to achieve an amazing hair transformation! Bouncy curls or a straightened sleek hair-do can give you that same warm, fuzzy post-salon feeling. Create either look with a great quality straightener sparing you the cost of lots of hair tools. To create effortlessly glamorous curls with a straightener take a small section of hair between the irons, create tensions and twist and pull the hair away from the face. Repeat this until all your hair is curled and then brush to loosen them up. I bet you feel better already!
