Staying inside for weeks on end with little daylight to brighten the mood – it’s no wonder we’re all crying out for a bit of pamper time. But with our favourite salons closed, why not create your own spa at home!
Making time to pamper yourself and your skin, will not only help lift your mood, but your skin will thank you too! Try a deeply nourishing face treatment like the Manuka Doctor Rejuvenating Mask. Intensely hydrating Manuka honey, Shea butter and Cocoa butter leave skin feeling plumped and fresh. Nature’s Botox Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) helps increase collagen production helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Whilst cell regenerating Royal jelly and Rosehip oil rejuvenate skin by renewing damaged skin cells and boost skin’s radiance. Run yourself a bath, pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple, apply the mask and relax whilst it works its magic.
As much as we look forward to escaping the day into some fresh air, cold blustery walks can wreak havoc with our complexion, especially when coming back to dry central heating. Facial oils have become a Winter staple for many, not only do the powerful natural oils deeply nourish the complexion, oils form a protective barrier on the skin to hold in moisture, keeping skin hydrated for longer. Try the Manuka Doctor Replenishing Oil either on its own or mixed into your Day or Night Cream for soft, supple Winter skin.
Another negative effect that lockdown can have on our skin is a lack of sleep. Stress and worry can interfere with our natural sleep patterns, which in turn creates stressful conditions within the body which raise our level of glycotoxins. These glycotoxins deregulate the skin’s natural systems responsible for the repair and protection processes that occur during sleep, consequently, this deregulation contributes to the impaired cell function, tissue disruption and damaged microvessels. However, there are things you can do to help promote a restful night’s sleep. Blue light from our televisions, Ipads and lap tops can interfere with our sleep patterns, so make sure you avoid these devices a good hour or two before bed. Try listening to an audio book at night instead, pour yourself a warm glass of milk with a spoonful of Manuka honey, avoiding alcohol and coffee at all costs. The last step in your relaxation regime, is to apply the Manuka Doctor Overnight Mask, which contains Lavender oil to help promote a restful night’s sleep. The Manuka honey, Aloe vera and Hyaluronic acid all help boost moisturisation and increase skin’s firmness so you wake with fresher, younger looking skin.
And if you find that you have more time on your hands than normal, now is a good time to de-clutter your skincare cupboard! Creams and lotions that have been opened for a long time, can harbour nasty germs and bacteria. On the packaging there will be a symbol showing a jar with an open lid and a number printed inside. This indicates how long you should keep the product after opening. If you’ve had some products open since a couple of Christmas’s ago, it’s time to get rid!
