Here at Pure Beauty, we like to keep thing simple while making ourselves feel as amazing as possible and Christmas is no exception. However, Christmas is such a busy time of year that our getting ready time is often cut into by all the other things that need doing. However, we’ve managed to get our routine sorted so that we look and feel great for the whole festive period.
The Night Before
This is the period we call “the calm before the storm” when we get five minutes to ourselves before the madness starts. We like to take a bath, using plenty of Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak, and apply Decleor Deep Cleansing Clarifying Clay Mask so that our skin gets some repairing nourishment. We finish with Decleor Magnolia Youthful Night Balm so that we wake up with soft, luminous skin.
This is the time when we like to give ourselves a properly polished look without taking too much time, so multifunctional products are key. Instead of using a separate primer, base and moisturiser, we tend to opt for Decleor BB Cream 24 Hour Hydration SPF15, which gives a wash of moisture, mineral pigmentation and even sun protection, all in one tube. Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner can be used over the top of make-up as a setting spray which will help to revitalise and moisturise skin while keeping your make-up in place all day.
Boxing Day Morning
Once the madness of Christmas Day is over, we like to take some time on Boxing Day for pampering our skin. We start with Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm to help to relax and refocus our mind and body. We also like to use Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion to help to resurface our skin and reveal the new cells beneath. Dry brushing is also a big part of our post-Christmas routine as it not only helps to brush away dry skin cells, it also helps with circulation and reducing bloating. Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush is the perfect thing to use.
Finally, we treat ourselves to Decleor Body Refining Oil Serum, which smooths the skin and helps restore its softness and elasticity. Associated with self-massage gestures, it helps reduce the appearance of orange-peel skin. Immediately, the skin is smoothed and beautified, its texture appears refined.
