Little Black DressWith Christmas just a matter of weeks away, your social life is probably kicking up a notch, with work do’s and social gatherings with friends and family high on the agenda. The chances are, you’ll want to look glam and put-together at each and every event, so we thought we’d put together a guide to show which areas you need to concentrate on to get yourself LBD-ready.


Hairy legs will look horrendous with a little black dress, so you’ll want to de-fuzz in order to look your best. Prepare the skin with Decleor Triple Protection Shave Perfector before shaving and protect the skin during shaving with a rich emollient like Dermalogica Invigorating Shave Gel


There’s no quicker way of ruining a “look” than by having ashy knees and elbows on show, and to get these areas of dryness looking their best you’ll first need to use an exfoliator to slough away old, dry skin cells. Opt for something like Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub which will help you to buff your way to perfection.


In the cooler weather (and after all that shaving and exfoliating!) your skin really benefits from a richer-than-usual moisturiser. That’s why, especially on LBD days, we opt for a moisturiser like Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream which will replace the skins’ lost moisture and encourage your body to replenish and repair itself, as well as making your skin look amazing.


Okay, so we aren’t all blessed with a year-round tan (or the bank balance to spend enough time in the Maldives to get one!), so a little help in the ‘glow’ department never goes amiss! Use a gradual tanner like Decleor Self-Tanning Milk Natural Glow in the days leading up to your event, but not before you’ve shaved or exfoliated or your efforts will be wasted, and by the big night you’ll have a tan which is at exactly the level you like.


An unruly mop of hair can be another problem if you’re trying to look as close to perfect as possible, so you’ll want to wash and condition your hair with products you can trust. We recommend Dermalogica Shine Therapy Shampoo and Dermalogica Silk Finish Conditioner for a sleek shine, which is the perfect way to complete your look.
