How amazing does that spring sunshine feel? The days are getting a little longer, the mornings brighter, and we’re all starting to get our bounce back.
But be warned, it’s still pretty chilly out there, which means pampering is super important. The twin evils of cold weather and central heating play havoc with hair and skin throughout the winter months, so your beauty routine needs to include plenty of hydrating, moisturising and protecting if you are to emerge beautiful and butterfly-like from the chrysalis of winter when warm days finally arrive.
So this week I’m focussing on TLC for hair and skin, with my pick of the best pampering products…
My Hair and Body Treats
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil: this is a delicious treat for first-thing in the morning. It lathers up in the shower, and its unique softening foam leaves your feeling deliciously supple, satin-smooth and scented with a gentle almond fragrance. Yummy!
Crabtree & Evelyn Evelyn Rosewater Body Cream: a pure beauty indulgence, massage in this luxuriously rich cream straight after a long, steamy bath and your skin will adore your for it. And the scent – wow! It’s a truly divine mix of rose petals, peach nectar, jasmine and bergamont.
Bumble & Bumble Prep: stop! Put down those tongs and that hair dryer! Next time you’re planning to heat your hair, make sure you spritz it with this nutritious pre-styling product first. It’s rich in nutrients yet oil-free, so it won’t weigh down your locks, and its formula makes the hair cuticle lie flatter, leaving your hair shinier and smoother than before.
Schwarzkopf Osis Glamination Smooth Polish: winter-weary hair can become dry and fuzzy all too quickly, so a glossing serum is a real pick-me-up. Applied to damp or dry hair, this lightweight, silky formula with smooth and straighten, adding shine and polish to your do.
Michael Kors Shimmer Bath Beads: sometimes a girl just needs to close the bathroom door, shut the world out, and indulge herself with some serious pampering. These creamy, shimmering bath beads will definitely do the trick. Deliciously scented with orange flower, cassis and jasmine, they leave a light golden shimmer on your skin. Heaven!
Narcisco Rodriquez For Her Hair Mist: I’m a big fan of layering my scent – wearing my favourite fragrance not just as a perfume, but as a cream, a body oil, even a deodorant. It enhances one scent rather than mixing up multiple smells. Hair fragrances are a hot new beauty trend, and this lightweight, non-oily formula leaves your locks silky smooth and perfumed with its signature delicate floral.
Dior Capture Totale Nurturing Hand Repair Cream: hands and nails often get over-looked but they are one of the first places to show signs of ageing, dryness and a run-down immune system. This rich, moisturising formula will soothe, nourish and hydrate, returning tired hands to their former glory!
