Shumaila’s Christmas beauty tips

November 13, 2013

So there are now officially on 41 days until Christmas and before the big day itself there is the whole issue of party season to contend with. For so many people December is simply one big party invite full of work dos, family events and other social gatherings. However, all this partying can take its toll on your beauty regime at the one time you want to look your best so in some ways the sooner you can start gearing up for the party season the better. So what do you need to do to ensure you sparkle this party season? photostock photostock

Ditch the fuzz
Party season means you are likely to want to get your legs and arms out and if you are anything like us it can be so tempting to forget about shaving and waxing as let’s face it we are bundled up under layers and layers to stave off the cold but if you want to ditch the opaque tights for party season you’ll need to ditch the fuzz.
One of the easiest ways to do this is probably waxing as it pulls the hair out from the root leaving your legs, underarms or bikini line smooth and hair free. What’s more unlike shaving the results really are long lasting so you won’t have to worry about not having time to shave before that crucial party. So get booked in for a wax so that you can take some of the stress out of your party prep.
Give your skin some TLC
Let’s face it winter tends to play havoc with our skin. From cold winter days (and nights) to central heating your skin takes a battering anyway (hands up who are suffering from dry skin for example) and add to that the partying, late nights and bad food that tends to go hand in hand with the festive season and by the time you get to Christmas day your natural glow could look more like a blotchy mess. So now is the time to take preventative measures to keep you looking your best. One thing you can do is book in for a facial as you will be able to target those problem areas and tackle any issues before they make you want to wear a paper bag on your head.
Make sure you look fab in your dress
I don’t know about you but I always have the best intentions over the festive season to go on a diet and slim down so I look fab in my party dress. However, it can be really hard to diet when there is so much nice food around and little time to exercise. So if you are worried about those last few pesky inches you could try a slimming body wrap. The idea behind the wrap is that will help detoxify your body so you can get rid of any unwanted fluids making you look slimmer – perfect!
And relax …
Let’s face it Christmas while fun can be a little bit stressful so don’t forget to take time out of your busy schedule to relax and unwind. So why not book in for a relaxing massage to de-stress so you can waltz through Christmas in style.
