Beauty Lifestyle • 23 July 2018
January is here. The hope of a fresh start, of starting new beauty regimes and breaking bad habits. While we all begin the month with the “new year, new me” mantra, sometimes these promises can be tough to keep. Even so, it’s something we try every year as a bid for self-improvement.
Upgrading your routine doesn’t have to be complicated though. This year, we’re calling on technology to do all the hard work, so we can keep those resolutions all year long.
Always remove your make-up
After a night out, it’s all too tempting to flop into bed without cleansing your skin, but this can have a damaging effect on your skin. The same goes for leaving on make-up when you’re at the gym, as it traps sweat and bacteria into your pores.
Thankfully, Clarisonic is on hand to help. Using gentle oscillations, the Clarisonic Mia Fit removes your make-up in just 60 seconds, cleansing up to 6 times better than using your hands alone. Simply pair with a lightweight cleanser to thoroughly customise your routine, protecting your skin from blemishes while helping you unwind too. No excuses.
Change your pillowcase often
Did you know that sleeping with a dirty pillowcase can irritate your skin? Over time, excess dirt, oil and make-up accumulate across the surface of the fabric, which can lead to blocked pores and breakouts.
We recommend changing your pillowcases once a week to keep them in tip-top condition. To maximise your beauty sleep, try using the iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Sleep set. Infused with Copper Oxide, the super soft fabric gently smooths away fine lines and wrinkles as you sleep to ensure a younger-looking appearance over time.
Don’t skip the serumsWhen it comes down to it, prevention will always be better than cure. Talika offers a wide range of skincare to supercharge your daily beauty routine. We love the Talika Light Quintessence anti-ageing serum, channelling light therapy to promote cell regeneration deep within the core layers of the skin. Packed with vitamins and anti-ageing peptides, it increases your collagen production by up to 43% to visibly reduce the signs of ageing.
Stop over processing your hair
Over-washing your hair can reduce the natural oil production across your scalp, leaving your skin feeling dry and flaky. To make sure you’re washing your hair properly and maximise your cleanse, gently lather up the roots and underside. However, it’s heat styling that can really do the most damage.
Drink 2 litres of water
On average around 70% of our bodies are made up of water, making it so important to stay fully hydrated. We should be aiming to drink 2 litres of fresh water each day. With each glass, you’ll be flushing away toxins and keeping your skin feeling softer, more supple and healthier too.
Track your hydration with our colourful range of BKR water bottles. Coated with silicone, these ergonomic bottles are perfect for keeping on your desk or in your bag to keep topped up when you’re on the go.
