After a long, busy week, we all deserve a chance to unwind.
Whether you’re in the mood to let your hair down with champagne and music or pop your feet up with hot chocolate and a crackling fire, ELEMIS has you covered. Read on for our top tips on how to have an enchanted evening in or out.
Nothing feels more luxurious than taking time for you. As the evenings darken, make your home a sanctuary with an indulgent, restorative routine. And if you’re feeling super generous, invite a few friends for a grown-up festive sleepover.
Start by giving your eyes a rest with dimmed lights and mood-transforming scented candles before beginning to unwind with the perfect bath. A remedy for overworked limbs and busy minds, our Life Elixirs bath and shower oils get to work to soothe and nourish, soaking away any seasonal stress in minutes.
As the steam opens up your pores, allow your cleansing routine to really get to work. Now’s also a great time to pop your capped bottle of Frangipani oil in the warm water, allowing it to melt in preparation for the next step.
After bathing, skin is supple and soft, leaving it primed for a hit of hydration. Take your melted Frangipani oil and massage it all over the body, paying special attention to dry areas that cold weather can intensify—think elbows, knees and heels.
Soothe your soul with calming music, clean pyjamas OR a favourite festive film; treating yourself to comforting, warming snacks and a gentle application of products from the Peptide 24/7 range; ideal for helping you wake up to a well-rested, beautiful complexion.
Enchanting Evenings In with ELEMIS…
The best part of going out? Getting ready, of course. Prepare to sparkle this party season with the best beauty-prepping products that ELEMIS has to offer.
Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks were made for parties. Apply to clean skin and leave on for 20 minutes while you paint your nails or curl your hair, allowing the plumping ingredients to instantly help combat the signs of a busy week; reducing puffiness and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Add in an illuminating layer of the Peptide4 Thousand Flower Mask to brighten and rejuvenate tired skin. The cooling, mousse-like texture is ideal for smoothing your complexion before you move on to makeup.
Late nights and cocktails can play havoc on your hydration, so let a hyaluronic serum be your skin’s best friend. Powerful water-attracting molecules in our Hydra-Boost Serum help form mini-reservoirs on your skin, ensuring you’ll be less puffy and blotchy come brunch-time the following day.
Just before you get in to the really fun bit—makeup! —smooth a pea-sized amount of the Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm over your face to give you a lit-from-within glow. And once your base is complete, blend a drop of Superfood Facial Oil with your favourite highlighter, patting it over cheek and brow bones for an instantly illuminating effect.
