After the excesses of Christmas, January is the time to nourish your body and mind so that you are ready to take on the year ahead, says Jarrold beauty buyer Deborah Pritchard
New Year skin revival ideas
THERE was a time when January meant detox. However, cleansing your body and mind from the toxins of the festive season with a harsh beauty and diet regime can have a negative effect, especially as it comes at a time when the winter weather can leave you feeling a little vulnerable anyway. When nature turns on the chill, it’s time to nurture.
Let’s start 2018 with a beauty regime that will provide the nourishment you need to take on anything. Your skin may feel a little dry and tight and look dull so it’s time to give yourself a little TLC with products and treatments that will hydrate, plump and soothe.
Here is my ‘get my glow back’ beauty kit:
DR HAUSHKA ROSE BODY CREAM, £27
Treat your body to this nourishing body cream. Scented with rose, the cream will help uplift your senses as well as providing luxurious hydration and comfort for your skin.
GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD HYDRATING TREATMENT, £42.
There are many mud masks in the GlamGlow range, but the one that is perfect for hydrating your skin is the GlamGlow Thirstymud. Use two to three times a week and even leave the mask on overnight for extreme moisturisation.
CRÈME DE LA MER GENAISSANCE
La Mer is one of my all time favourite skincare brands, it maybe expensive but the products are as luxurious as they say they are. The new Genaissance De La Mer collection offers all that this skincare brand promises and more. The Genaissance De La Mer The Serum Essence, (£440), The Infused Lotion, (£190) and The Eye Expression Cream (£225), promise to rejuvenate and replenish your skin, so much so that skin looks plumper, lines and wrinkles are softened and dark circles under your eyes reduced.
While other skincare regimes ask you to apply your serum after cleansing before your moisturiser, with the La Mer Genaissance treatment the serum is applied after the lotion in order to give higher levels of hydration and nourishment.
There is nothing better than kick starting your New Year nourishment regime than with a spa treatment. At The Retreat, our day spa hidden away underneath our beauty hall, you can have a beauty treatment package from £45. For the definitive treatment, our Ultimate Spa Experience (£125) gives you three and a half hours of nourishing treatments including a Decléor back, neck and shoulder massage, Decléor tranquillity scalp massage, OPI signature manicure, OPI signature pedicure and Decléor aromatherapy discovery facial.
For those who love to treat themselves at home the Decléor Aromessence Marjalaine Nourishing Night Balm 15ml, £36 is a luxurious quick fix.
You can book a treatment at The Retreat at our beauty hall or by calling 01603 660661. To see the full treatment menu visit www.jarrold.co.uk/retreat
