Saving face at Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… except for my face

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, mulled wine and decking those halls. The festive season is well a truly here, lights are up, party invites received and everything is beginning to have that soft, warm, candlelit glow, which is a blessing considering.

Christmas is that time of year when it becomes acceptable to drink something with a percentage before 12pm, eat in a constant, steady flow and use the excuse ‘well as it’s Christmas…’ for literally everything.

Sugar, canapes and late nights are few people’s friends and yet I seem to embrace them wholeheartedly at this time of year which means my face ends up puffy, dehydrated and generally dull. Make-up can only do so much and I’m a firm believer of ‘don’t cover it up, fix the underlying issue’.

So favourite things:

  1. With extra days off work I use them for #selfcare. Sheet mask, bath, manicure, and all the lotions.
  2. A jade roller in the fridge = puffiness be gone.
  3. I keep a water bottle in my bag in place of a hip flask
  4. Take make up off properly at night and cleanse properly in the morning- Christmas party makeup is only appropriate at the Christmas party, not on your pillow.
