WELCOME TO 2014 BEAUTIES!

You might be feeling a little worse for wear after a few days of celebrating a little too much over the past few weeks and have made a vow to start putting those New Year resolutions into practise this Monday.  While exercise and diet might be at the top of the list, why not add in a few beauty resolutions? Trust us – they will pay off in the long run! 


DETOX YOUR NAILS

The best way to detox your nails is to start using toxic-free brands. Eliminate formaldehyde from your polishes buy purchasing brands that clearly state “3-FREE” on the bottle. 
 
Brands such as Honeybee Gardens and Scotch Naturals have toxin free nail lacquers in a variety of shades.

INTRODUCE AN EXTRA HYDRATING HAIR MASK INTO YOUR HAIR CARE REGIME

A busy social season often means dry brittle ends, dehydrated hair and an overuse of products. Take it back to basics, tone down the excessive use of hair straighters and blow driers and introduce some extra gentle and hydrating products.  

Which do we recommend?
Try Evo The Great Hydrator (below).
An intense hydrating treatment to moisturise and smooth dry, frissy and colour-treated hair.

DO A BEAUTY AUDIT

Just like the food in your pantry, beauty products have use-by dates. Common side effects of using expired products include skin reactions, conjunctivitis and other infections. Have a toss out of all those old products and treat yourself to the ones you’ve been eyeing off for the past few months. 
 

CARE FOR YOUR CUTICLES

Applying cuticle oil is probably the last thing on a busy woman's mind, but taking just a few seconds every week (or daily if you can manage) to take care of the skin surrounding your nail bed can help prevent infection caused by dry skin.
 

WEAR SUNSCREEN

Don’t think – just do! It’s so important to protect your body’s largest organ, your skin, from harmful environmental aggressors and UVA/UVA rays. Not only will it prevent the early onset of ageing, but eliminate any further sun damage. We recommend using an SPF of at least 30+ EVERY DAY, yes even in winter, to keep your skin looking its best.
