Christmas is just around the corner, and you know what that means.

It’s officially holiday party season!

There really are so many reasons to love holiday parties – they’re an opportunity catch up with friends and family, delicious food and drink is available in abundance, and it’s a fabulous excuse to get dressed up. And yes, that also means dressing up your skin!

For skin that gives your outfit a run for its money, pamper yourself the night before with our party-ready skin ritual below. We promise it will leave you looking and feeling your very best.

 

 

1 | INFUSE

Prior to starting the skincare ritual, infuse a teaspoon of your favourite antioxidant-rich loose leaf tea in a cup of hot water and cover for 10 minutes to release the lovely antioxidants. Strain and pour into a bowl. (10 minutes)

 

2 | CLEANSE

Gently massage our radiance-boosting Wild Rose Beauty Balm onto your face and neck. Then, immerse the enclosed muslin cloth into the hand-hot tea and ring out. (2 minutes)

 

3 | STEAM

Hold the cloth close to your face to steam the skin, until the cloth cools, then dip in the water. Repeat this three times, then rinse the cloth and use it to remove the balm. (2 minutes)

 

4 | EXFOLIATE

Whilst skin is still damp, massage in our gently exfoliating Rehydrating Rose Facial Polish. Rinse and pat dry with a towel. (2 minutes)

 

5 | REVITALIZE

Apply a layer of Rose Formula Antioxidant Facial Mask avoiding the eye and lip area. Rinse after 5-10 minutes.

 

6 | NURTURE

Squeeze two drops of our nurturing Rehydrating Rose Facial Oil onto your fingertips, close your eyes and inhale the therapeutic aroma for a few moments. Then apply in sweeping upward strokes to face and neck, avoiding the eye area. (2 minutes)

 

7 | REJUVENATE

End your ritual by massaging in our lightweight Beauty Sleep Concentrate to support your skin. (2 minutes)

 

And there you have it: the perfect ritual for the night before a big holiday event –  or any time you feel like treating yourself. Hey, you definitely deserve it!

Common sense tells us that applying oils to our skin will cause us to look more oily — something that most of us will actively avoid. Contrary to this, however, using a good facial oil won’t leave your skin clogged, shiny, or cause it to breakout. Anyone can use facial oils as a beneficial part of their skincare routine. For nourished, glowing and protected skin, facial oils are definitely worth considering.
