Traditionally December is a time to catch up with friends and family and it’s important to ensure that you also catch up on some much needed rest. Skin that hasn’t benefited from a good night’s sleep often looks puffy, dull and lifeless. Sleep is also one of the most important factors for successful ageing so it’s important that you get enough. Following a comprehensive review of published scientific studies on sleep and health, The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults should have between 7-9 hours’ sleep per day.
Night time is the perfect time to use your more intensive skincare products, like hydrating oils, serums and targeted masques. It is also an opportunity to intensify body treatments. Making these part of your night time ritual means you can wake up the next day with soft and smooth skin. A great method for soft, smooth feet is using Environ® A, C & E Oil and Derma-Lac Lotion on feet at night before bed. After applying the lotions, wrap your feet in clingfilm before putting on socks and leave overnight.

Award winning #Beauty-Spa-Reigate, The Nail & Body Boutique, Surrey is here to help:
- Hydration is key – Aim to increase your intake of water and reduce caffeine and fizzy drinks as they act as a mild diuretic. Also, supplementing with an omega oil supplement such as Skin Omegas+ can help to safeguard essential fatty acid levels and help maintain the skin’s lipid layer.
- UVA rays – Don’t forget winter light also carries UVA rays and skin needs protection against free-radical damage to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Using make-up that protects the skin is also crucial. jane iredale PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation is perfect for applying after treatments to protect skin against the elements with SPF20.
