Make 2019 your most gorgeous yet with our top 12 New Year beauty resolutions. One for each month of the year to help you look and feel your fabulous best.
DECLUTTER YOUR MAKEUP BAG
Out with the old and in with the new! Take a peek in your make-up bag….
Cosmetics and skincare have expiry dates so dig deep and discard them if they’re out of date, starting to discolour or smell as they won’t do your skin any favours. And it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself and kick-start the year with the latest make-up trends and skincare technology.
Give your makeup brushes a clean too. Bacteria on dirty brushes could be causing you to break out. Once a month massage a mild baby shampoo or soap into the head of the brush, rinse with warm water and then lay the brush on a towel with the head hanging over the sink to dry.
MAN ABOUT TOWN
It’s Valentine’s this month so gently encourage the man in your life to invest in some professional male grooming.
Need a helping hand? From skincare and facials to manicures and manscaping, we’ve got it covered in our men’s grooming blog here. You’ll be falling in love with him all over again on the 14th….
FLIRTY FLUTTERING EYELASHES
Treat yourself to the lashes you’ve always dreamed of with extensions or a lash lift.
Full, fluttery and defined lashes can be yours with our Novalash extensions. Long, luscious lashes which we can beautifully tailor to your individual look. Read our blog for the lowdown here.
Prefer a more natural low maintenance look? Then book a Sleeping Beauty Lash Lift treatment and leave the salon with lifted, lengthened and voluminous natural-looking eyelashes that flutter better.
PROTECT YOUR SKIN AGAINST SUN DAMAGE
Did you know long-term, unprotected exposure to the sun accounts for around 90% of the signs of skin aging? UVB and UVA rays damage skin cells leading to fine lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, thinned skin, loss of elasticity and skin cancer.
UVA rays can pass through glass and clouds and are present every day of the year at equal intensity during all daylight hours so resolve to wear at least factor 30 SPF every day of the year even if you’re inside, in a car or the sun isn’t shining. And don’t forget your neck and hands, and reapply regularly throughout the day.
Learn about the best treatments for sun damage here.
Combat the tell-tale signs of ageing all over your body with regular body brushing, moisturising and exfoliating to invigorate your skin.
Give yourself a kick-start with one of our handmade Aromatherapy Salt Scrubs - Rose & Jasmine or Bergamot, Grapefruit & Lime – leaving skin buffed smooth. A generous application of our body soufflé leaves skin feeling moisturised, silky and soft.
A beautifully relaxing treatment that sets your skin up for the warmer weather and skimpy summer dresses. Find out more here.
A FUZZ-FREE SUMMER
Be fuzz-free and super smooth on your summer getaway. We compare the pros and cons of IPL hair removal vs waxing here so you can decide what’s best for you.
Remember winter is the best time to start laser treatments. And did we mention we also offer hair removal for men?
PRETTY TOOTSIES FOR PRETTY SANDALS
Make sure your tootsies are flip-flop ready. Give neglected feet a kick-start with a professional luxury pedicure, guaranteed to leave them silky, soft and perfectly polished.
For a totally indulgent treat why not combine a pedicure with a reflexology treatment to soothe away tension and stress?
It’s easy to neglect cuticles, yet dry, rough or overgrown cuticles will spoil your gorgeous manicure.
Try our Sleeping Beauty Luxe Cuticle Oil (£9) - a fragrant blend of Rose and Jasmine along with sumptuous hydrating skin oils to nourish and protect fragile cuticles.
TACKLE SUN DAMAGE
You don’t have to live with the effects of sun damage. Post-summer is the ideal time to tackle those age spots, pigmentation and fine lines with the latest non-surgical anti-ageing skincare treatments.
Our non-surgical state-of-the-art treatments rejuvenate skin, letting you enjoy that flattering post-holiday glow without the visible effects of sun damage. Find out more in our blog here.
DEEP CLEAN YOUR SKIN
Make-up, pollution and dirt lead to blocked pores, dull skin and breakouts. Resolve to treat your skin to a weekly face mask or exfoliating treatment. One of our favourites is Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel which effectively cleanses, unblocks pores and encourages healthy cell turnover, for a beautifully clear complexion in time for spring.
And don’t forget…
Nattering away on your mobile phone for hours can lead to breakouts and rashes along your jaw line and cheek. Keep antibacterial wipes handy to swipe your phone clean and help your skin stay clear.
RADIANT, YOUTHFUL-LOOKING SKIN
Resolve to book a complimentary skincare consultation at Sleeping Beauty for some expert professional advice about our non-surgical anti-ageing skincare treatments CACI, COMCIT, Elemis BIOTEC and microdermabrasion which all offer effective, long-term results.
These latest anti-ageing facial treatments reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin and improve the appearance of blemishes and pigmentation.
