Does anyone feel as though this January has just flown by? I can't believe it's the 13th already. Now that the snow is upon us, I thought that there wasn't a more fitting time to share with you my top January pick me ups.
I love nothing more than being curled up watching or reading Harry Potter, with a bundle of blankets and a mug of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. For an extra treat, I pop on a face mask and my go-to pick at the moment has got to be the Aesop Primrose Cleansing Masque. It's super cleansing, whilst still leaving my skin feeling nourished. For an extra boost of hydration, I have been loving using the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream.
It can be easy to neglect your body at this time of year, especially when it's wrapped underneath layers and layers of clothing. I've turned my hand to body brushing at the moment to improve circulation and add an overall radiance to the body; perfect if you want to perk up the skin with fake tan or if you want to keep dry skin at bay. To finish, I love applying the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Souffle from head to toe to give my body a sweet treat this Winter.
An instant pick me up of mine is treating my nails to a pamper. The Lush Lemony Flutter is fantastic at nourishing the cuticles and getting rid of dehydrated patches, before applying a thicker layer of my hand cream of choice to act as a hand mask before using an Essie Nail Vanish.
Aside from anything relating to beauty, I have been thoroughly enjoying snuggling by the fire in a fresh set of PJ's and the dressing gown I got for Christmas. In fact I've been eyeing up some new loungewear bits to keep me warm this Winter - Including this Rainbow PJ Set offering. I've been trying to improve the way I eat this month after over indulging in one too many chocolates, so I have pulled out my favourite mushroom rice noodle recipe and sweet potato and chickpea burgers to keep me warm on the inside this month too.
What are your favourite January pick me ups?
