Most of us have mastered the beauty basics – stay hydrated, know your skin type, and never sleep with your make-up on. But to keep you looking (and feeling) your best, it’s wise to start from within. Adopting a more holistic approach to your daily routine, including a beauty supplement or two, can help to improve the appearance of your hair, skin and nails, while also offering a host of other health and wellbeing benefits. Not sure where to begin? Check out cult favourites The Super Elixir, Bodyism and The Beauty Chef.

We’re all guilty of having a few skeletons – AKA old mascaras and foundations – in the closet. Not only do these dated products not work so well – clumpy eyelashes, anyone? – they also put you at risk of skin irritations and eye infections. That’s why it’s best to ditch them and start fresh for the year ahead. We recommend starting with the following beauty basics…
YVES SAINT LAURENT | Mascara Volume Effect
Faux Cils Holiday Set
GIORGIO ARMANI | Luminous Silk Foundation
GUERLAIN | Kisskiss Lipstick

It’s likely you already moisturise daily, but have you embraced the many benefits of body balm? Offering a slightly thicker coverage than your everyday lotion – without the annoyance of a greasy residue – body balms provide the ultra-hydration you need to keep your skin beautiful all year long.

Take extra care tending to your tresses this year with the latest in luxurious hair care. By stocking up on professional-grade products – offering higher quality ingredients – you can enjoy that I just came from the salon look every single day. That means more time practising your hair swish, and less time hiding beneath oversized broadbrim hats. For best results, we recommend investing in the following cult hair care brands.
R +CO | DAY + NIGHT SET
CHRISTOPHE ROBIN | Regenerating travel kit
ORIBE | Gold Lust Collection

The New Year is your chance to create an entirely new you, that’s why we suggest trying out something you’ve never tried before. Like maybe a facemask that offers the beauty benefits of black diamond truffle extract, or your own personal tongue scraper, or a luxury hair brush.
ESTEE LAUDER | Ultimate Diamond
Revitalizing Mask Noir
FOREO | Issa Tongue Cleaner
MASON PEARSON | HANDY PURE BRISTLE BRUSH

To be honest, there’s a lot about beauty we’re still trying to understand – like what nutrients are really the best for your hair, skin and nails, and how you know when you’ve found the perfect shade of lipstick for your complexion. Thankfully, we recently received a drop of the latest in beauty literature, featuring a host of wisdom-packed titles just in time for the New Year. We can’t promise we’ll be experts by 2019, but we like our chances.
