COLD BLAST Just another reason to swing the tap to the right, cold showers have been proven to thicken hair and increase blood flow and circulation in the skin. If you can’t go cold for the whole four minutes then try a cold blast for the last 30 seconds of your shower. It’s also a great way to wake yourself up in the morning!
ICE, ICE BABY Alleviate puffy eyes by lightly rubbing ice cubes in circular motions under the eyes. The cold constricts the capillaries and also helps to seal in your products nicely. Ice is also the perfect solution to an angry pimple as it will help reduce the swelling and redness. Some celebrities even go as far as a full face ice dunk! Fill a bowl with ice and water and dunk your face in.
BEAUTY SLEEP An elaborate skincare regimen and endless cups of coffee won’t give you the same beauty benefits of a good night’s sleep. Getting between seven to nine hours of sleep a night will revitalise your mind and skin from the inside out. While you snooze, your body produces collagen and stimulates blood flow which helps to repair your skin. Plus, studies show that a lack of sleep has a knock on effect on poor lifestyle choices like skipping exercise or a bad diet, which, in turn, will impact your skin. Any excuse for a power nap, right?
