Get ready for Christmas: How to look your best in 25 days or less

With the upcoming festive season, we all want to look our best. But from skincare to dieting to fashion, it takes a whole lot of effort to even think about looking good. That’s why we’re here to help, with 21 days to Christmas, we’ve got you covered with beauty tips to look and feel your absolute best for the festivities!

Skin

People in skincare circles will wax lyrical about the magic of oils (remember the craze for argan oil?), but beauty comes from within and there’s no better way to take care of your skin than through your diet.

A 2008 study by the Institute of Experimental Dermatology in Germany revealed the wonders of skin-loving oils on your diet. Researchers found that women who consumed 2.2g of flaxseed or borage oil supplements (why flaxseed oil? - it contains essential fatty acids that are great for skin!)  a day experienced a significant increase in skin moisture and reduction in roughness.

Salmon, flax seeds, olive oil, walnuts and blueberries are great foods to eat when you're looking for improving your skin!

 

Hair

Nobody wants to go to a party with frizzy, lacklustre hair, follow these tips and step up on your haircare routine for soft, luscious locks - just in time for the season.

A happy scalp is the key to healthy hair, so go easy on the shampoo as it most often leaves your scalp parched while stripping the grime and dirt from your hair. Switch to sulphate and paraben free shampoos and treat your hair and your scalp with Coconut Oil!

Coconut Oil is rich in vitamin K and vitamin E along with fatty acids like lauric and capric acid which help to reduce dandruff, fight fungus and bacteria and make keep hair follicles happy and healthy.

Our favourite way of using Coconut Oil as a treatment would be to heat up a tablespoon or two of coconut oil with a couple drops of essential oils and massage it into the hair and scalp. For an intensive hydrating treatment, wrap your head with a towel and leave it on for a couple of hours or overnight.

 

Concoct your own potion for glossier hair! We absolutely love essential oils when mixed in with coconut. Sandalwood and Geranium oils are great for moisturizing and conditioning while oils like Rosemary help to boost hair growth!
