Easy Ways To Pamper Yourself This Christmas







According to the popular song, Christmas is supposed to be ‘the most wonderful time of the year’. For many of us, however, it’s also the busiest and most stressful period. There is so much to do in the run-up to the big day. Planning, presents, shopping, cooking and cleaning – preparing for Christmas is almost a full-time job in itself! On top of all this, it’s peak party season. Drinks, dinners out and even the traditional big office party can seem like just another chore when you’re frantically busy. That’s especially true if you’re not entirely happy with the way you look. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Putting aside time for some pampering is more important than ever during the festive season. How we look and feel are closely connected. So, indulging in some pampering from a facial or new hair-do to an aesthetic treatment doesn’t just help you put your best face forward in December. It can also boost your mood and your confidence – and help you cope with the Christmas craziness better.

Get serious about skincare

If you care about your appearance, good skincare is a must. We should all be cleansing thoroughly, using a daily SPF (even in winter) and moisturising conscientiously. However, there are limits to what topical products can achieve. Luckily, we offer a range of effective non-surgical aesthetic treatments, to help you look and feel your very best.

Say goodbye to wrinkles

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular anti-ageing aesthetic treatments in the world. The reason why? They really work. These are injections, which basically relax certain facial muscles. This means they can no longer contract into lines and wrinkles. This is one of the quick aesthetic treatments that get fast results – you should see the effects within a few days. It’s a really effective way to treat crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines. So it’s perfect if you want to look rested and refreshed throughout the hectic Christmas season. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections are temporary, but they can last for weeks. So you should still look rejuvenated well into the new year. Tempted to treat yourself to a smoother, fresher look? These aesthetic treatments are safe, hygienic and won’t leave you looking fake or ‘frozen’.

Look fantastic with facial fillers

Dermal (or facial) fillers are another effective anti-ageing injectable treatment. They are different but actually work well together with anti-wrinkle injections. Instead of relaxing muscles, dermal fillers replace lost volume, lift, contour and plump the skin. These aesthetic treatments are basically small gel injections, usually made up of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies but decreases as we age. It performs a number of functions but plays a huge role in skin hydration and stimulates the production of collagen.

Think of collagen and elastin as your skin’s ‘scaffolding’. When these deteriorate, wrinkles, sagging and bagging soon follow. Dermal fillers are an excellent way to effectively refresh your overall appearance. These aesthetic treatments can be used to smooth lines and contours and enhance definition. They’re a great treatment for the lower half of the face. They can even be injected into lips to create a fuller, luscious pout. The results are instant and last for months. So they’re a worthwhile investment if you’re keen to look younger, not just throughout Christmas, but well into 2019 too. Why not combine fillers with anti-ageing injections for long-lasting full-face rejuvenation? It’s a great way to combat those almost inevitable January blues.

Style your hair

Why not make this Christmas the time to try out one of the latest hair trends? Whether you’re looking for a bob with a fringe or gorgeous curls, is certainly the season to curate your coiffure. Even if time is tight in the run-up to the big day, you’ll feel so rejuvenated following a trip to a professional hair salon. This way, you could be the belle of the ball at your Christmas party. If you just can’t fit in a trip to the hair salon before Christmas, why not book an appointment for January when you can really look forward to some pampering in the new year?
