Here’s our step-by-step guide to slay the Christmas season…
4-6 WEEKS BEFORE- BODY
You’ve got just over a month to kickstart your winter routine. It’s all too easy to resort to comfort food this time of the year, but avoid the temptation and focus on your party goals.

This deeply relaxing process could provide you with not only a sleeker, defined silhouette but some much called for me time during this hectic festive period. GOOD FOR metabolism boost, head to toe restoration, hormonal balance, sports injuries, fatigue.
3-4 WEEKS BEFORE- SKIN
Your skin is going to take one for the team as you indulge in drinking too much, and sleeping not nearly enough. To delay the effects of dark under eye circles and dull skin, go for a resurfacing and glow-boosting facial. You’ll notice the immediate effects as soon as you leave your relaxation bubble, but the intense exfoliation will keep your radiance going for even longer.

Last but not least, coat your nails in long-lasting colour. If you make this the last bit of your prep, you should be able to get through the season chip-free until the New Year. Tips to make your nails last the whole party season. A gel manicure typically lasts two to three weeks and some simple home nail art can give you three seasonal looks. Choose a classic seasonal party colour i.e deep port wine red or classic red or even pinky beige or nude for your first party. Then gradually add glitter in a tonal hue.
