There are a lot of things that can make us feel like we’ve let ourselves go, from bereavement to break-ups, births and illnesses, but it’s never too late to pull it back and get to a point where you feel like yourself again. Beauty is probably the last thing on your mind when you’ve had a major event in your life, but we’ve got some tips to help you once you get to the point where you want to start looking after yourself again:
The brows are one of the first places that we neglect when we fall out of love with our beauty routine, but the good thing is, they’re one of the simplest to get back into check again. Pop to a salon for some waxing or threading to get them back into shape and rid yourself of any stragglers, then treat your brow area to some Decleor Post-Wax Cream – Sensitive Areas to soothe and slow down regrowth.
Tiredness, crying and stress can all have an effect on the eye area, leaving you with dark circles and puffiness. Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift is specifically designed to erase the signs of stress from around the eye area and can be used as needed for a quick boost, or daily to address signs of chronic eye fatigue.
Stress and upset, or just general neglect, can leave your skin looking dull and lacklustre, and it can take a very special product to get you back to your former glowing self. Jan Marini Luminate Face Mask visibly improves the appearance of skin tone, texture and luminosity starting with the first use and continuing over time, so your skin will get better every time you use it.
We don’t know about you, but our nails and hands always suffer when we’re stressed, as we tend to bite them down and neglect them completely. Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Hand and Nail Cream is a nourishing treatment which will give essential moisture and vitamins back to your hands and nails, smoothing the skin and helping nails to regrow quickly and with added strength.
The skin on your face isn’t the only place to suffer when you’ve let things go; our bodies often need a lift, too. Elemis Devils Mint Body Scrub will not only scrub away the top layers of dead skin, leaving your neglected areas looking fresh, but the scent is designed to stimulate your mind too, helping to bring you out of your funk and back to being fully functional again.
