If you’re tanning up before a night out, and have no time to get a pro-tan, please use a wash-off tanner. It’s way easier to wash away mistakes and correct in a hurry. One worth trying is James Read Wash Off Tan For Body, £12, in case a self-tan goes awry at the last minute.
Dip your nails in icy water to help harden freshly painted polish. Or keep a bottle of Mavala Oil Seal Dryer, £13, nearby: a treatment you tap onto the cuticle part of your nails, hold hands downwards for 10-15 seconds and allow the oil to travel down and coat the complete nail. They’ll be completely touch-dry within seconds.
…but not just any water. Boost your fluid intake with Rejuvenated H3O Hydration, £24.95 for 30 days’ supply. This 100% natural hydration drink has hyaluronic acid, plus calcium, magnesium and vitamin C, and works deep to boost cell turnover – it really shows in your complexion after just a few days.
TAKE THE DAY OFF
Vegan beauty is finally raising its style game. For keeps, I’m loving Oribe Gold Envy Luminous Face Mask, £72; a moisturising yet brightening ten-minute mask with peptides, golden evening primrose oil and pure gold particles. I say sleep in it! After all… start the year as you mean to go on.
Puff up those pillows, lie back and rest your face with a FACE INC 40 Winks Anti-Ageing Sheet Mask, £5, a collagen plumping, hyaluronic acid sheet with multivitamins B3 and 5, C, E and retinol. Your quick-fix antidote to tired, flagging (or sagging) skin, to brighten and even up skin tone.
