Whether you’re a teacher, support staff, a student or a school-run parent, you’re probably feeling incredibly glad to see six weeks of summer stretching out ahead of you, where you can turn off your daily alarm, stay up as late as you want and even drink wine on a random Tuesday without having to worry about the next morning! It’s highly likely that your body is feeling more than a little tired, so we thought we’d take a look at some of our products which are designed to remedy all that tiredness and help you to put a little more ZING into your skin!
Masks are a really great way to replenish and revitalise the skin as they can be left on for a period of time and really allowed to go to work. This masque from Dermalogica is designed to brighten dull, tired skin and will detoxify and invigorate your skin. It’s easy to remove and can be used on all skin types, making it an essential product for your bathroom cabinet.
Nothing tells you that you’re tired more than aching muscles, and by the same token, nothing is better for aching muscles than a soak in a tub full of warm water and some Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak! The blend of botanicals such as birch, juniper, clove, alpine lavender, wild thyme and blue chamomile combine with sea salt to gently warm and soothe the muscles, helping your body to unwind and allowing your mind to follow suit – just don’t fall asleep in the bath!
If you don’t have time for a bath (or have a bathtub at home!) you’ll need a product which can be applied directly to the skin if you want to revitalise aching limbs and muscles. This gel from Elemis is designed to be rubbed into tired muscles, especially the neck and shoulders, to help to untie knotted areas, cool and soothe inflammation, and instantly leave you feeling lighter and less achy. It’s great for travel and can also be applied to the temples during a migraine.
Night-time is the right time…to rejuvenate your skin. Night creams and balms are brilliant products for giving your skin a big burst of help, and this Iris Rejuvenating Night Balm is no exception. It’s made from 100% natural ingredients and is especially great for ageing skin. It will energise, tone and redefine facial contours, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate and invigorate even the most tired skin, particularly those showing signs of ageing.
No anti-tiredness beauty regime would be complete without a product which can work miracles on your eyes. Tired eyes will look puffy and have dark circles around them, but this balm from Elemis works to combat that. It contains omega-rich apricot kernel oil nourishes the delicate eye contour area, as well as benefiting from an applicator which cools and smooths the skin as you use it.
