Hurrah! We did it! We got through January. All be it a little pale, exhausted and well.. lacking ‘oomph’. So we’ve rounded up the best products to give you that Post January Oomph factor and have you taking on February with a spring in your step!
1. Nourishment begins from within, and we’ve found an amazing new juice to take on all juices. The Swedish health app Lifesum (www.lifesum.com) nutritionist, Frida Harju, has together with the London-based juice maker Crussh (www.crussh.com) developed a juice based on data analysis of Lifesum’s 30,000 London users to see what nutrients they lack and what health issues affect young professional in the city. The nutrients a lot of people are falling short on are Vitamin E, Zinc, Niacin and Omega 3 – to name a few.
Based on these facts the Lifesum Green juice was designed, so now you can get the nutrients you need in just one drink! Made using coconut water, kale, spinach, apple, kiwi, pineapple, pear and omega-3 oil it tastes delicious too – win!
Lifesum Green, is available from all 30 Crussh stores across the Capital. Price: Regular size (325ml) £3.95, Large size (450ml) £4.95, and Full size (650ml) £6.50.
2. The skincare ante needs to be upp-ed during the colder months, especially as January usually sees us detoxing and so battling with some dysfunctional skin for a while… until the season changes again, but that’s a whole other story! Skin needs gentle exfoliation combined with ultra hydration. We love Nip & Fab’s Glycolic pads to exfoliate skin without tearing and dragging skin. Followed by their Dragon Blood range of moisturiser and face mask will really help to plump up skin.
If you’re looking a little lacklustre in the morning, This Works Light Time Skin Plumper will literally make you look like you’ve had 8 hours sleep on a cloud. It lifts skin, moisturises without being greasy and somehow just makes everything look better. Magic.
3. Sometimes we all need a little more help in the form of make-up and we just discovered Australia’s No. 1 mineral makeup brand, Nude by Nature
which promises to hydrate, replenish and revive your skin while beautifying. Each product in the award winning Australian range includes naturally derived native ingredients that have been carefully selected to benefit the skin.
Nude by Nature is more than cosmetic, it’s make-up that’s actually good for you. With the party season leaving our skin in need of some TLC, the Nude by Nature product range not only does just that but it performs and delivers flawless coverage each and every time.
Barefaced’s favourites of the range include the Perfecting Primer, bursting with Vitamin C, rich antioxidants Vitamins A and E, and Green Tea (£22), Flawless Pressed Powder Foundation, which gives skin an airbrushed look but feels weightless (£25) and the Sheer Light Liquid Illuminator to brighten up your skin on a dark January morning (£18).
4. Good hair can really make a day and give you a much needed boost. Give your hair oomph with Moroccan Oil’s Volumising shampoo and conditioner set, which deeply nourishes while givng that much-needed lift.
Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner contain antioxidant argan oil and nutrients to cleanse, detangle and bring back body to hair. They beautify hair with shine, manageability and movement, while making it easier to style. The formulas are free of sulfates, phosphates and parabens, so they’re safer for the environment and won’t dry, fade or strip hair of colour. (Duo available on www.feelunique.com for £42.85)
February, bring it on!
