Having to juggle work, children and gift shopping during the holiday season often feels like running a marathon! So on D-Day, it’s almost impossible to be the star of the evening, unless you prepared yourself a few days in advance with a tailored beauty program. We show you how.
D-2 weeks
Nourish your mane — As soon as the temperature drops down and you start wearing a winter hat, your hair gets damaged. The solution? Pamper it with a mask loaded with nourishing and moisturizing ingredients. After washing your locks, towel-dry them to remove any excess water and massage the mask into them. Wait a few minutes and rinse. It’s now time to tame your mane by blow-drying and styling it!
Living proof Restore mask treatment
D-1 week
Get rid of dull skin — The pallid light of December does nothing good to your skin, and with your summer tan long gone, your complexion looks dull. To refresh it and give it all of its radiance back, remove dead skin cells with a mechanical peeling for the thickest skins, and with an enzymatic peeling for the thinnest skins. The first type of peeling removes dead skin cells by mechanical action thanks to the small beads it contains, while the fruit acids of the second one gently eats dead skins away.
Nuxe Paris Gentle Exfoliating gel
D-3 days
Hydrate from the outside in — Temperature variations and overheating severely dehydrate your epidermis. As a result, your skin gets red and feels abnormally tight. Because a well-hydrated skin helps improve the staying power of makeup and reflects a natural glow, load it with nourishing and hydrating elements so it can go back to its normal state. A trick skincare pros swear by? Apply a thick layer of your hydrating mask and leave it on overnight.
Phytomer thirst-relief Rehydrating Mask
D-1 day
Pamper your paws — Impeccable hands are a must to show off your Christmas Eve outfit so take good care of them the day before, whether you wish to wear nail polish or not! Start by exfoliating the skin on your hands to give it all of its youth back and to get rid of all impurities on and around the nails. Then apply a nourishing oil on the cuticles. Once prepped, all that’s left to do on D-Day, is to paint your nails with a bright red or deep burgundy!
Mavala Lightening Nail Scrub Mask
Make your pout pop — Since Christmas Eve is the perfect occasion to wear a nice lip colour, having damaged and chapped lips is not an option! The first step is to remove dead skins by delicately massaging a gentle exfoliator. Then apply a restoring balm, leave it on for a few minutes and remove any excess. Just before putting your makeup on, apply a base on the contour of your lips to prevent your lipstick from feathering.
