Good Times Beauty Boosters by Lisa Haynes
Kick-start your new year with a happy and healthy outlook. Fashion and beauty editor Lisa Haynes shows you how to shoo off the January blues.
Lisa’s Zizzi New Year favourites:
“Load up on oily fish like salmon – the omega-3 helps skin glow”
– Drink: Mixed Berry Cooler (alcohol free)
– Starter: Super Zucca Salad (shared)
– Meal: Spiedini Pescatore (with broccoli)
– Dessert: Pomegranate Sorbet
After a hedonistic December, I like to strip things back in January with winter white outfits and fresh, glowing skin. Goodbye sequins and glitter (for a bit).
If you’re off to a slow start, let your beauty regime give you a daily boost. Dedicating a few extra minutes on your body and skincare in the morning can make a big difference.
I step up the gym routine and switch up my diet too. Zizzi’s Skinny Pizzas and Spiedini Mediterranean hanging skewers make healthy eating way more fun.
Feeling flat after the festivities? Refresh and energise for 2015 with these instant feel-good saviours.
WAKE UP SKIN
Try dry body brushing daily before your shower. It wakes up a sluggish circulation and helps diminish the orange peel effect. I love Mio’s Body Brush, which combines natural bristles with massage nodules.
The Mio Body Brush, £14.50
Get positive vibes as you lather up with an uplifting, botanical bodywash. Plant Brooklyn’s Get Happy includes geranium and peppermint organic essential oils to make you feel smiley in the shower.
Plant Broolyn Get Happy Bodywash, £12.50
Adding a serum to your morning skin routine is a real game changer. After cleansing, smooth on Benefit’s Instant Comeback Serum for its instant energising and hydrating effects. Hello, radiant skin.
Benefit Instant Comeback Serum, £36
January is the peak of pasty skin. I like to faux a fresh-faced, healthy flush with Dior’s Rosy Glow. It reacts with the moisture in your skin so cheeks get a bespoke blush. Clever!
Dior Rosy Glow, £30.50
Get a pick-me-up by swapping your signature scent for a fresh substitute. If you’re superstitious like me, spritz on Library of Fragrance’s Four Leaf Clover for a lucky start to 2015.
Library of Fragrance Four Leaf Clover, £15
Laugh in the face of dark mornings and ‘pillow face’ with The Body Shop’s new Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask. Slather on before bed for plumped up skin when the alarm goes off.
