6 tips to feel and look amazing this January👑

New Year new me? The winter months can be really tough on your skin. Cold weather and central heating take their toll and sunshine is scarce. After the over-indulgence of Christmas and New Year’s Eve, your skin may be looking a little tired and January’s grey, drizzly days and long dark nights aren’t going to help. Soft, glowing skin can help to cheer you up in the cold, dark months – even when the sun is nowhere to be seen. So don’t just bundle up under woolly layers and thick tights – try following these top tips to make your skin feel and look amazing this January:

Keep active

One of the reasons our skin often looks and feels better in the summer is all the time we spend outdoors. While it’s tempting to wish away January and February hibernating on the sofa, staying active will increase your pulse rate, boost your circulation and give your skin natural radiance. So try to exercise at least three times a week to keep that glow going this winter. January is proven to have the best deals for gym membership, so how could you say no?

Exfoliate

Harsh winter weather can often leave your skin dull, dry and flaky. Regular exfoliation will remove dead skin cells, revealing your beautiful, glowing skin.

Moisturise

The combination of central heating and cold weather can really dry out your skin, so it’s important to hydrate. Using moisturiser is an important part of a winter skin routine and will keep your complexion looking fresh and healthy.

Drink water

Don’t forget to moisturise from the inside out by drinking lots of water. Drinking eight glasses of water a day helps to rid the body and skin of toxins, giving you a more radiant glow helping you to look amazing this January.

Get a sun-kissed glow all year round

While the sun may be nowhere to be found, fake tan can ensure a sun-kissed look even on the murkiest of days. With your skin thoroughly exfoliated and hydrated, you can achieve an even, natural-looking glow. Apply in natural light using a mitt or glove for the best results.
