Beauty and wellness updates in time for a festive whirl.
No one can deny the joy a thoughtful present brings. And with the festive season approaching, you are certainly shopping for all the people on your list, be they naughty or nice.
There is one person you may at times forget, but ought to really pamper—you. ‘Tis the season to be holiday ready after all.
Have your hair done
Amid burgeoning to-do lists and the multiple roles you juggle, your beauty regimens may, at times, fall by the wayside. Take this as a sign from the heavens to gift yourself a nice little goodie or two, and to start putting these must-have indulgences on regular rotation. It could be something that’s simple yet impactful, like transforming your eyes with a come-hither flutter. For this, head on over to Néw Lounge for their celebrity-approved, lightweight sable eyelash extensions.
Another treat that’s great for low-maintenance glam is the brow lamination from Browhaus. The perm—which lasts a month—shapes one’s natural hairs into a healthy-looking, feathery masterpiece, giving you amazing arches with little to no effort.
Make an impression at any gathering with a contemporary bob cut and updated hair color. Toni&Guy’s creative director Cherry Reyes loves the au courant feel of copper hair, its warmth both bold, luxurious and will keep you up to date for spring.
Put on party makeup
Party season is the time to dial up your look. Illuminate lids with swatches of metallic shimmer complemented with a sultry cat eye. Delight yourself with the new take on the classic French manicure, replete with colorful tips, or go for glow with a chrome twist.
With everyone in a celebratory mood, it’s high time to pay attention to your megawatt smile, too. Our model Kyle got a thorough assessment and treatment at Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center to get her teeth in even better shape, making the season’s glossy cherry lips look even more alluring.
Beauty inside and out
When spoiling yourself, opt for treatments with a feel-good vibe, like a relaxing trip to the dermatologist. Give stressed-out skin some TLC with Avignon Clinic’s Acne Light Facial, which helps address breakouts through a mix of effective actives and LED light therapy. Even out complexion with the PiQo4 laser, which reaches the deep dermis to rejuvenate skin. For an even more sculpted look to rock those holiday frocks: Avignon’s Emsculpt is a body-contouring treatment that helps tone the muscles through high-intensity electromagnetic technology.
There is serenity in mindfully scheduled self-care. They nourish you on the inside, allowing you to simultaneously love and enhance your natural self. True elegance stems from the irrefutable truth that amidst your flaws, there is undeniable splendor that’s been there all along. If a beauty ritual can remind you of this fact, why in the world not?
