5 Beauty Boosters To Replace Rest

5 Beauty Boosters to Replace Rest

You’ve survived the first working week of January. Which means the new-year adrenaline has started to wear off, and you’re now recovering from an hedonistic, congratulatory weekend (we made it!!). Add to this world-weariness and a thing I like to call ‘January panic’ (that relentless sinking feeling, when you don’t know which day, week – or even year – it is), and you have the formula for serious fatigue. So here’s my pick of the best beauty boosters to replace good quality snooze time…

{Odacité} do boosters for all skin types, concerns and seasons – and if your body’s feeling tired, it’s likely that your cells are too. {Cell Energy Booster} is a concentrated blend of blueberry and jasmine extracts, which reinforce free radical-defences and encourage healthy cell regeneration. Just warm a few drops between fingertips, and press gently into still-damp skin post-cleansing.

Alternatively, their {Dull Skin Booster} stars a heady blend of passion fruit and orange, to jolt both skin and senses into wakefulness. With a high concentration of vitamins A to C, this golden elixir delivers a supercharged shot of nutrients – brightening, toning and tightening in one fell swoop. Use alone, or add 2 – 3 drops to your day cream; all of Odacité’s potent blends can be mixed, matched and alternated to address the ever-changing needs of your complexion.

Anne Semonin’s {Express Radiance Ice Cubes} might seem like a gimmick, but when you wake up puffy-faced you’ll thank your freezer for these mini miracles. Cryotherapy (the science of lowering cellular temperature), has the effect of tightening capillaries which in turn, accelerates the elimination of excess fluid and toxins – especially welcome on a hangover.

Resurfacing, rejuvenating and regenerating, Alpha-H’s {Instant Facial} is both gently exfoliating and intensively hydrating. Whether used as a brightening toner, or misted over make up through the day, this ‘tingly’ mist refreshes and invigorates – stimulating cell renewal, battling blemishes and restoring long lost luminosity.

And if your eyes are betraying your sleep (or lack of) situation, try GLAMGLOW’s {BRIGHTMUD Eye Treatment} – a bag-banishing, circle-brightening, fine line-diminishing mask. Just pat along your under-eyes, leave for three minutes and wipe off to look immediately (if artificially) better-rested.
